African American Leaders Are Outraged At Attacks On Congressman Franks

 

 


Atlanta, GA - When U. S. Congressman Trent Franks spoke about communities where over fifty percent of the abortions performed are on black women, abortion proponents called him a liar, again attempting to divert the attention away from the question of the abortion industry’s targeting Blacks for abortion and onto mathematical analysis of whether he correctly divided the numbers. African American leaders are outraged.

Recently America has been faced with the question of whether the abortion industry is having an adverse impact on the black community. Ignited by the film Maafa21 and the Georgia Right to Life “Endangered Species” billboards, there is a rising belief that the abortion industry is following a long established practice of targeting the black community; locating its clinics in urban areas where blacks reside.

Instead of reassuring America that there is no racially motivated agenda to control the birth rate of the black community through abortion, the abortion industry has once again deflected the question, obscuring it in intellectually, politically and socially insulting dogma. The Black leaders say the facts are clear, and can be verified at such sites as www.protectingblacklife.org andwww.blackgenocide.org .

“It is time abortion advocates stop the personal attacks. It is time they face us and renounce the racially discriminatory roots of the industry” said Catherine Davis, Minority Outreach Director for Georgia right to Life. “My people are dying and in Georgia we can point to the abortion industry as one of the leading causes of death of African Americans, 59% of the abortions in 2008 alone”.


“The civil rights activists did not fight to make lynching safe, legal, and rare. They ended it. We must fight to end the ugliest form of racism: abortion.” said Dr. Johnny Hunter of LEARN.  “This womb lynching has caused more African American deaths than the Klan achieved in over 144 years”. 

"The truth is being told and that's what the other side is afraid of. Abortion is the number one killer of black people--we have to deal with that by standing up and speaking out, said Day Gardner, President of the National Black Pro-Life Union. 

Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life agreed. “How can the dream survive if the abortion industry is allowed to continue targeting black babies in the womb?
 I have a dream, it is in my genes, that this 21st century bastion of racism will come down”.
