Let’s revisit the year 1982 and the gruesome discovery of the bodies of nearly 17,000 aborted babies in Woodland Hills, California. As Erma Clardy Craven—a pro-life black leader at that time—pointed out, of all those aborted babies, “12-15,000 of them were observed to be black.” Clardy Craven, a sociologist and outspoken critic of the racially disproportionate number of black babies being aborted, could never get the public to pay attention. Yet, to her dying day in June 1994 she persisted. She spoke frequently with me and countless other pro-life Americans about this unbelievable travesty.
Today, there are still few who lend an ear to or who care about this enormous problem. And, thus the situation has not changed. An article on Abyssum states:
RETA is a fact. Of all abortions in the USA, about half are of minority babies, but their mothers account for less than thirty percent of the population. For one abortion business, about eighty percent of its retail locations are purposefully in or near minority neighborhoods. “Black genocide” is a fact. See, for example, Maafa 21, BlackGenocide.org, or Abort73.com. Dr. Alveda King, Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece, speaks often about the modern-day black genocide of abortion.
So where’s the outrage?
Rev. Clenard Childress Jr., a spokesman for the pro-life group L.E.A.R.N, attended the NAACP’s convention recently and suggested that the African-American community needs to reassess its political priorities. He said they ignore “the 1,786 African-American children who are killed each day in the womb.” The news report continues, “In fact, he [Childress] says every two weeks abortion providers kill more African-American preborn babies than the Ku Klux Klan killed in 15 years—something he contends is totally ignored by African-American leadership. The pro-life leader believes one reason for that is heavy contributions from Planned Parenthood to organizations such as the NAACP ‘that has bought their silence.’”
Planned Parenthood is in denial, of course, but really there is no doubt about the numbers and its ongoing commitment to abortion on demand.
Speaking of Planned Parenthood, the following documented report from Stop Planned Parenthood International makes the case beyond the shadow of a doubt:
Planned Parenthood has targeted African-American communities across the country, building large abortion facilities in black neighborhoods. Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a proponent of eugenics. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the eugenics movement sought to “improve” the human species and preserve racial “purity” through planned human breeding. Sanger wrote in a letter dated December 10, 1939: “We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” Sanger wrote the comment as a part of her collaboration in The Negro Project.
The following information shows how a black child is 2.33 more times likely to be killed in the womb than a white child:
The CDC Abortion Surveillance Report states that:
- White women have 132 abortions for every 1,000 live births.
- Black women have 459 abortions for every 1,000 live births.
A child conceived of a black woman has a 33.4 percent chance of being killed in the womb.
A child conceived of a white woman has a 14.3 percent chance of being killed in the womb.
A black child is 2.33 times more likely to be killed in the womb than a white child.
So, what is our next step? The answer is quite simple, really. We must teach the truth about abortion and the proponents of this awful crime. Theirs is a movement that is the single most powerful advocate of racial discrimination in our country today.
Organizations like Planned Parenthood not only do not believe that black lives matter, they do not believe that any human lives matter—no matter what the ethnicity. Killing, not welcoming innocent preborn persons, is its modus operandi.
Our message is clear. We are builders. We are builders of a culture of life! And we are here to stand in the gap and defend every single innocent human being from his beginning until his end.
Stamping out racial discrimination in America begins with ending abortion in America.
