BROOKLYN - Anti-abortion rights activists unveiled what some are calling a controversial billboard in Soho today, and a local politician is speaking out against its message.

The billboard was posted by a Texas non-profit group called "Life Always." The sign reads, "The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb."

Many residents say they couldn't believe what they saw hanging above 6th Avenue and some say they are insulted.
