Controversial Soho billboard sparks a strong response

In Soho, New York City, a reported "anti-abortion" billboard went up earlier this week and it has drawn sharp criticism for its alleged targeting of minority women. The billboard reportedly reads, "The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb."

The three-story billboard at the center of the controversy is located at the intersection of Sixth Avenue and Watts Street. Life Always leader Pastor Stephen Broden has been reported to have said his group purposefully released a billboard that would solicit a strong reaction.

The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
