Personal responsibility is central to a functioning free society. The Roe v Wade decision legalizing abortion, enshrining sex for amusement and the illusion of sex without consequences, was a frontal assault on our culture of personal responsibility.

In 1969, three years before Roe v Wade, 68% of Americans said premarital sex is wrong. Today 32% say it is wrong.

Removing marriage as the framework for sex and children has produced results that don’t surprise. Fifty million abortions since 1973, while we’ve gone from 10% of American babies born to unwed mothers in 1970 to 40% today.

A black child has a fifty percent chance of being aborted and, if born, a seventy percent chance of living in a single parent home.

Planned Parenthood, who provides a third of our nation’s abortions, gets $300 million annually from the federal government which they use to set up in black neighborhoods to perpetuate this dismal reality.

The Issues4Life Foundation and the Radiance foundation are fighting back. The idea is that the beginning of solving any problem is building awareness. The goal for the billboard campaign is to plant seeds in the minds of blacks and all Americans that the future for all of us can only be in a culture of life, family, and personal responsibility.
