Anti-abortion advocates pulling the race card

ATLANTA, GA (AP) - Anti-abortion advocates are bringing race into the discussion, saying black children are "an endangered species."

Their message is on dozens of billboards across Atlanta as part of an effort to rally support within the black community against abortion.

Georgia Right to Life is sponsoring the campaign.

The group also has taken its efforts to the Capitol with legislation that would ban abortions based on the race.

The "Too Many Aborted" strategy is drawing a mixed reaction from black leaders, but other anti-abortion groups say the billboards should be replicated across the country.
