Enough is enough! African-American leaders must wake up and demand the assault against the black unborn stop and square their biblical beliefs with the truth of abortion and Black America.
Union City, CA (PRWEB) March 4, 2008
The Issues4Life Foundation demands the assault against the Black unborn child stop and calls for the defunding of Planned Parenthood with U.S. tax payer dollars.
Walter Hoye, Founder of Issues4Life Foundation, expressed his outrage after reading, Live Action's Winter Quarter 2008 issue of, "The Advocate", a UCLA student magazine on the right to life, which revealed Planned Parenthood accepting money specifically targeted to "lower the number of Blacks in America." Expressing his unbelief, Hoye said, "According to 'The Advocate,' 79% of Planned Parenthood clinics are in minority cites, and kill an estimated 1,500 Black babies every day." Hoye says, "According to Dr. Johnny Hunter, President of the Life Education And Resource Network, from 1882 to 1968, 3,446 African-Americans were lynched in the U.S. and that number is surpassed in three (3) days by abortion."
Issues4Life Foundation continues to crunch the numbers and finds, according to Dr. Clenard H. Childress, Jr. of BlackGenocide.org, about one-third of all abortions in America are performed on black women even though African-American women only represent 6% to 7% of the U.S. population according to the U.S. Census Report of 2006. The abortion ratio for black women is 2.9 times higher than the ratio for white women. Nearly 50 percent of all pregnancies among black women end in abortion while just 16 percent of pregnancies among white women end in abortion.
According to Mr. Hoye, the numbers surrounding the impact of abortion in the Black community just get worse. According to the U.S. Census Report of 2006 Black Americans are currently below the replacement level. "Keep in mind," Mr. Hoye says, "that the U.S. Census Report is given to the Senate and the Congress and yet our leadership continues to support Planned Parenthood with millions in U.S tax payer money. Black America should insist that political candidates support life and demand the defunding of Planned Parenthood."
Mr. Hoye wonders out loud, "How many African-American leaders understand the realities of abortion on Black Americans? Since 1973 an estimated 47% of the black population has been exterminated by abortion which based on the U.S. Census Report of 2006 is the equivalent of 6 times the population of the state of Mississippi or 5 times the population of the state of Connecticut or 4 times the population of the state of Alabama or 3 times the population of the state of Tennessee or 2 times the population of the state of Georgia or the entire population of the state of Florida or half the population of the state of California. Abortion is the number one killer in our communities," Hoye says, "Enough is enough! African-American leaders must wake up and demand the assault against the black unborn stop and square their biblical beliefs with the truth of abortion and Black America."
