ATLANTA, July 19, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ — The National Black Prolife Coalition announces a social media video campaign, called “NUMBERS DON’T LIE” to expose the number one killer of African-Americans: Planned Parenthood and urban abortion clinics. The second installment of a 3-part video series, entitled: “NUMBER ONE KILLER” was released today. It reveals how abortions in the black community outnumber all other causes of death combined.
New York City, the home of Planned Parenthood, aborts nearly 60% of all black pregnancies. Yet abortion activists denounce any effort to address this epidemic of abortion.
“Pro-abortion groups cry racism and misogyny because they know they can’t speak to the facts. They’ve tried to remove our TooManyAborted.com billboards and crush free speech instead of halting over 363,000 innocent lives needlessly crushed in the black community,” said Ryan Bomberger of The Radiance Foundation, the organization that created the video series.
“When will our black leaders take an honest look at these numbers, become outraged and do something to stop the abortion deaths of our beautiful black babies?” asked Rev. Arnold M. Culbreath of Protecting Black Life. “The numbers don’t lie. Abortion takes a tremendous toll on our women, our men, our families and our future.”
“The betrayal of many of these self-styled leaders runs deep,” said Catherine Davis of the Black Prolife Coalition. “Many are recipients of the largesse of the abortion industry as they promote the destruction of their own community through abortion.”
Pastor Stephen Broden of Dallas, Texas said: “The effect of abortion in the black community is clear as one examines the numbers. So-called leaders are complicit in the decimation of our children and the very survival of our people.”
With a $1 billion annual budget and $1 billion in assets, Planned Parenthood has historically targeted African-Americans with birth control through population control efforts. Today, the nation’s largest abortion chain kills 332,278 (disproportionately black) in the latest year reported, providing only 7,021 women prenatal care and 977 adoption referrals.
“This campaign should be liberating for the leaders and everyone concerned. After all, the truth sets us all free. If our leaders haven’t sold us out, this is their opportunity to stand up for life,” said Dr. Alveda King, of African American Outreach.
