Anti-Abortion Group Takes Message to NYC Buses
A pro-life organization called Chiaroscuro Foundation is taking its message to the buses of New York City.
The ad started appearing on city buses this week.
The organization has said the ad is in response to a Health Department report claiming that 41% of viable pregnancies in New York City end up in abortions, and the city's Mayor Blloomberg's response to it.
Bloomberg has been quoted as saying he "doesn't know if the figure is correct."
New York's Catholic Archbishop Timothy Dolan has called the percentage "chilling'.
These are some photos of the ad on a MTA city bus on Friday, February 18th, 2011 on 14th Street in Manhattan.
