The billboard includes a website address: TTownFacts.com which not only provides the numbers on abortions in the state of Alabama and the city of Tuscaloosa but also shares information on abortion procedures.
According to the site, there were 6,063 abortions in Alabama in 2017 and 3,148 of them were committed in Tuscaloosa. Meanwhile, the site states the there were just 2,538 live births in Tuscaloosa in the same year. Those numbers indicate that not only are more than half of the state’s abortions committed in Tuscaloosa, but more preborn children were aborted there than were born that year.
According to AL.com, the billboard was first noticed on Friday morning August 9 and shared by Twitter users. It reignited the debate on abortion laws in the state, specifically the law that passed in May which makes abortion a felony for the abortionist except in cases of medical emergency or the mother’s life is at risk – (abortion is never actually medically necessary) – or the preborn child is considered incompatible with life – (which is an act of eugenics).
Lamar, the company that owns the billboard, says that it was purchased by an anonymous buyer. There is no information available on how long the billboard will be up.
