One month ago, former Congressional candidate Stephen Broden was making news in New York City when Dallas-based Life Always, of which Broden's a member, debuted that anti-abortion billboard in SoHo that read, "The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb." Only a few days later the billboard came down, but Broden vowed he'd be back. And so he is -- this time in Chicago, where, yesterday, Life Always decorated an empty block with the billboard you see here.
A Friend of Unfair Park directs our attention to this morning's Chicago Tribune, which chronicles the hubbub surrounding the display, complete with a photo of a protester giving the Fair Park Bible Fellowship minister the what-for. Says Broden, whose views on abortion Jim chronicled last year, "For too long the scourge of abortion has been hidden behind political correctness. Liberal interests have deceived our women into believing that the answer to poverty is to murder their babies." He says Life Always plans to plant 30 of the billboards across Chicago.
