Every 4 days in American more black children are killed through abortion than the KKK killed in 144 years.
Georgia leads the country in the number of reported abortions performed on black women, 18,901 in 2008 alone.
While these numbers may seem staggering, they are our present reality.
The question is what will we do about the fact that black children are aborted at three times the rate of white children?
Georgia Right to Life and the Radiance Foundation have launched a project to answer that question. The Endangered Species Project is an initiative to increase awareness of the impact of abortion on Georgia’s minority communities and women.
The campaign began with the placement of billboards in Dekalb and Fulton counties where the majority of abortions occur. According to Catherine Davis, Director of Minority Outreach, over 67% of the abortions in Georgia occur in those two counties.
Ms Davis maintains that this is by design. “Planned Parenthood’s Negro Project is succeeding”, Davis said. “They targeted blacks in order to control their birthrate, limiting the growth of populations they ‘don’t want too many of as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg revealed was the goal behind Roe v. Wade (Women on the Court, New York Times Magazine, July 2009).”
In addition to the billboards a website was also launched this week — http://www.TooManyAborted.com –where the motives for abortion in America are discussed. Ryan Bomberger, co-founder of The Radiance Foundation stated, “TooManyAborted.com is the response to the rhetoric of ‘reducing abortions’. Regardless of race, religious and civic community leaders and the general public need to understand the destructive nature of the abortion industry and get outraged by the truth.”
The video clip below helps to illustrate the facts in a relevant way.
Dr. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr. commented, “My Uncle Martin once stated, ‘The Negro cannot win if he is willing to sell the future of his children for his personal and immediate comfort and safety.’ Those words are still true today. After all, how can the dream survive if we let them take our children?”
Dr. Alveda King also captured the heart of the matter. We need to see these children as our children. We need to be reminded as Dr. Alveda King also stated,”Abortion is the civil rights issue of the 21st century.” The question is will we get involved in this 21st century fight or will we sit on the sidelines and say it doesn’t affect me?
