LITTLE ROCK, March 7, 2013, ( - Ryan Bomberger and others promise to rock Little Rock with billboards noting the ravages abortion has had on the black community. Arkansas Black Americans for Life has partnered with The Radiance Foundation to launch a new billboard/web abortion awareness campaign.

The initiative, entitled “Gone,” educates the public about how racial targeting results in the alarming number of abortions in the black community. Five billboards have been placed in Little Rock/North Little Rock for five weeks.

Little Rock has a notable place in civil rights history ending the dehumanization of black Americans by desegregating their schools. "The same racist eugenics movement that implemented “Separate But Equal” policies also birthed the nation’s largest abortion chain–Planned Parenthood," according to a press release from The Radiance Foundation.

The taxpayer-funded abortion giant has led in taking the lives of over 15 million black babies since 1973. 

Arkansas Black Americans for Life (BAL), a chapter of Arkansas Right to Life, looked at the signs as an opportunity to address the number one killer in the black community and exposes the Planned Parenthood Association of Arkansas (formerly the Arkansas Eugenics Association).

“Over the years many have fought against injustices contrived to dehumanize, extinguish, and deprive anyone of being who they wer e– a human being with limitless potential to be great,” says Lekita Gaynor, co-chair of ABAL. “However, as light began to shine on us, it darkened on our unborn children who are unable to contend for themselves"

"If we don’t speak for those who cannot, who will?" she asked. "We are a voice for the voiceless.”

In Arkansas, 38 percent of the state’s 4,033 abortions are among black women. The black population in Arkansas is 16 percent. As is typical, nationwide, two of the state’s three abortion clinics are located in majority-minority neighborhoods, with blacks making up 56 percent and 80 percent of the surrounding population.

Planned Parenthood claims high black abortion rates are due to “lack of access.”

"Planned Parenthood receives half a billion taxpayer dollars and they fail, miserably -- but intentionally," said Ryan Bomberger, the African-American creator of the campaigns. "They’ve not budged the national unintended pregnancy rate since 1995 while STDs, ‘unplanned’ pregnancies, new HIV infections and abortions soar in the black community.”

Using Planned Parenthood’s own annual reports Bomberger points out: “They’ve killed more children, of any race, than ever before in their history—333,964. Nothing else they do generates that kind of blood money. Abortion has made them a billion dollar empire.”

Arkansas Black Americans for Life and The Radiance Foundation advocate for the life-affirming alternatives to abortion, such as adoption and parenting.
