Anti-abortion billboards around Atlanta are causing a stir for their claim that African American women get a disproportionate amount of abortions compared to other women, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitutional.

Anti-abortion groups Georgia Right to Life and the Radiance Foundation–who erected the billboards–say about 56% of Black women in Georgia get abortions, though Blacks make up 30% of the population. According to the two groups’ website abortion clinics are often placed in “urban areas where Blacks reside.” The groups also compare the rate of abortions to segregation, saying, “Abortion is the tool [segregationists] use to stealthily target blacks for extermination.”
