The Radiance Foundation, an Atlanta-based anti-abortion group, launched a billboard campaign on Sunday that compares abortion to the history of slavery in America. The 50 billboards — which were strategically erected on Juneteenth, which commemorates the ending of slavery in the U.S. — feature the slogan, “The 13th Amendment Freed Us. Abortion Enslaves Us.”

Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer of The Radiance Foundation, told HuffPost he has “no political aim at all” in launching the campaign—he just wants to expose the negative effect that abortion has on his community.

“When you look at what abortion has brought to the black community, it can’t be typified to anything other than present-day slavery,” he said. “Roe v. Wade used the 14th Amendment—which finally gave humanity to African Americans—and contorted it to give someone the right to kill an unborn child. It’s just like slavery, because you have a class of people who are considered less than human, and therefore they can be treated like property.”
