California Billboard Claims: "The most dangerous place for a Latino is in the womb.”

A conservative Latino organization plans to place jumbo billboards around California by Friday with a message that targets abortions: “The most dangerous place for a Latino is in the womb.”

“There’s no other place in the United States where over 200,000 Latinos die in a year,” said Alfonso Aguilar, executive director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, which is sponsoring the billboard campaign.

The billboard campaign, styled after a similar highly controversial one in February in New York that targeted abortion among African Americans, is timed to kick off a gathering called “Unidos Por La Vida,” or “United for Life,” on Sunday at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. The gathering, which Aguilar said is expected to draw some 15,000 participants, is to feature Texas Gov. Rick Perry as the keynote speaker.

“Organizations like Planned Parenthood live off abortions,” he said. “They know they can target Latina women, who many times are younger, low income.”
