A new anti-abortion campaign is sparking controversy on Chicago's South Side.

Three billboards went up overnight at 5812 State Street. They show a picture of President Obama and read, "Every 21 minutes, our next possible leader is aborted."

A group called Black Women for Reproductive Justice calls the billboards demeaning to African-American women.

The Texas-based group Life Always plans to place 30 of the billboards on Chicago's South Side. The group says it wants to address lost potential in the African-American community.
