On March 29, 2011, a Texas-based group called LifeAlways erected three billboards in an African American community on the southside of Chicago with the message, “Every 21 minutes, our next possible leader is aborted.”  These billboards also feature an image of President Barack Obama.  Send a message to the sponsors of these billboards to”Stop Targeting Black Women — Take Down the Racist Abortion Billboards in Chicago.”

Alan Simpson (R-WY), co-chair of Obama’s debt commission, crosses party lines by speaking up against pro-life and homophobia.

Who the hell is for abortion? I don’t know anybody running around with a sign that says, “Have an abortion! They’re wonderful!” They’re hideous, but they’re a deeply intimate and personal decision, andI don’t think men legislators should even vote on the issue.

Then you’ve got homosexuality, you’ve got Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. We have homophobes on our party. That’s disgusting to me. We’re all human beings. We’re all God’s children. Now if they’re going to get off on that stuff—Santorum has said some cruel things—cruel, cruel things—about homosexuals. Ask him about it; see if he attributes the cruelness of his remarks years ago. Foul.
