“Abortion In The Hood” Billboard Says Jesse Jackson Betrayed Us

“What happens to the mind of a person, and the moral fabric of a nation, that accepts the aborting of the life of a baby without a pang of conscience? What kind of a person, and what kind of a society will we have 20 years hence if life can be taken so casually?”

Reverend Jesse Jackson, made that statement when he was pro-life in 1977.

Years later when Jesse was running for president in 1984, he had this to say, “As a matter of law, women must have freedom of choice, just as other have freedom of sex preference. Women have the legal right to choose what they would do with their bodies.”

Abortion in the Hood, is the name of an anti-abortion group that put up a billboard in Atlanta attacking Jesse Jackson and the Congressional Black Caucus for changing their position on abortion.


The website and campaign were funded by The Restoration Project.

“Something is wrong when those elected to protect the interests of their constituents turn a blind eye to the horrific impact that abortion is wreaking on the Black community,” said Catherine Davis of the Restoration Project.

“In New York City, for every 1,000 Black babies born alive, 1,489 are aborted. In Washington, D.C., for every 100 Black babies born alive, 165 are aborted! Something is wrong!”
