There were an estimated 1.21 million abortions in 2008 (the last year stats are available through Guttmacher.org). This is an increase of 6,150 more aborted innocent lives from the last full reporting in 2005. That means 363,705 black children have been aborted in that year alone. Estimates of 14-18 million aborted black babies, since the legalization of Roe v. Wade, reveal an alarming crisis that has been largely ignored by not only our mainstream media, but by the very black churches that are the foundation of the black community. To put things into an even more sobering perspective, the 2008 U.S. black population was 39.1 million (those who identified themselves in Census as ‘Black’ only). Although black people make up about 12.2% of the U.S. population, we are responsible for 30 percent of all abortions, nationwide.1
Statistically, for every 1.3 live births in the black community, 1 child is aborted. This is not liberation. This is deliberate elimination by Planned Parenthood’s design, not of an entire race, but of a socio-economic class of people who the abortion industry considers “undesirable”. Black women have abortions at nearly 3x the rate of white women and significantly more abortions than Hispanics, despite lower representation in the U.S. population.2 A 2007 National Vital Statistics Report3 reveals the total number of all causes of deaths, which amounted to 289,585 deaths for African-Americans. This includes every possible cause of death such as heart disease, cancer, cerebrovascular diseases, accidents, homicides, suicides, and diabetes. African-American abortions, for that same year were 363,705. More deaths are caused by abortion than heart disease, cancer, cerebrovascular diseases, accidents, homicides, suicides and diabetes COMBINED.
Planned Parenthood Federation of America is responsible for our modern-day Birth Control culture and the propaganda that abortion is ‘reproductive freedom’. There is no freedom in the deaths of the innocent. There is no freedom in the mass exodus of fathers. There is no freedom in a community inflicted with rampant STDs, HIV and HPV. There is no freedom in a cycle of poverty that is unbroken and even intensified by abortion. There is no freedom in the heart of a would-be-mother who chooses death because she’s been misinformed that the precious life inside her is all just a clump of cells.
Once upon a time, some of us were considered just a clump of cells that were bought, traded and sold as property. They were wrong then. And they are, 56 million lives later, wrong now.
SIDENOTE: Guttmacher.org, a Planned Parenthood-funded pro-abortion activist organization (founded by former Planned Parenthood President Alan Guttmacher)2 is one of two reporting entities that provides abortion statistics nationwide. Guttmacher’s latest 2008 statistics do NOT reveal the actual abortion rate NOR total number of abortion per race/ethnic group data, which makes the changes from 2005 hard to verify. There is no federal compulsion for any abortion clinic to report to either Guttmacher or the CDC. The CDC funds Planned Parenthood through millions of dollars worth of grants. And the CDC admits that its reporting totals are under-reported as there are states that do not report their abortion stats to the CDC (CA, NH, FL and New York City).4. These are, however, the only national stats available. One must be skeptical of any subjective assessments made by Guttmacher as they are staunchly pro-abortion, and heavily active in financing global policies legalizing abortion.
