Controversial Pro-Life Billboard Taken Down

February 25, 2011  |  

The controversial billboard in New York City that proclaimed a black woman’s womb was the most dangerous place for an African American, has been taken down by the advertising agency that placed it there for a Texas-based pro-life client. A spokesman for the advertising agency told CNN that the sign was taken down due to concerns for public safety. Staffers at a restaurant inside of the building where the ad was hanging,  claim they were harassed by patrons about the sign’s content. A  scheduled protest also helped the advertising agency decide to remove the sign.

Do you think the sign kick-started a necessary conversation or was it just a waste of everyone’s time?
