Ryan Bomberger v. Carlton Veazey on NPR

Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation debates Carlton Veazey, President of the Reproductive Coalition of Reproductive Choice on NPR regarding the Radiance Foundation's billboards and abortions in the black community.

A little before the 9 minute mark, Bomberger makes a great point in refutation of one of Veazey's arguments. Veazey argued that black women have more abortions on average than other races because of a lack of access to (reproductive) health care.

Bomberger's response:
How is it that these same people who can find these clinics to have an abortion can't find the same clinic for contraception?
He also goes on to point out how Hispanics have higher percentages of uninsured than blacks yet have lower abortion rates.
