ATLANTA, July 1, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ — The National Black Prolife Coalition released a new EPIDEMIC video today at www.blackandprolife.org. Coalition spokespersons say that the Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 should recognize babies in the womb as a class of unprotected human beings targeted by abortion.
“July 2, marks the Anniversary of The Civil Rights Act of 1964. This landmark US legislation outlawed major forms of eugenics-based discrimination against blacks and women. It ended discriminatory voter requirements, and enforced the reconstruction amendments that finally ascribed humanity to Black Americans,” said Ryan Bomberger of The Radiance Foundation.
“This monumental anti-discrimination act falls short of protecting America’s weakest and most vulnerable class of human beings, the babies in the womb. Even the ‘Women’s Rights Movement’ should recognize the harm to the rights of the baby girls in the womb. Other monumental events in America’s history also did not foresee the potential harm of failure to protect all innocent unborn babies,” said Dr. Alveda King of African American Outreach at Priests for Life.
July 4, 1776 – Independence Day honors the birthday of the United States of America and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. “Who could have imagined that by 2011 over 50 million American babies, with over 15 million of them being Black American babies, would have been executed by the act of abortion?” asks Arnold M. Culbreath of Protecting Black Life.
January 1, 1863 — President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. “Who would ever dream that by 2011 African American babies would be the most vulnerable people group to be executed by abortion, or that their mothers would be the most targeted market for the abortion industry?” added Alveda King.
January 20, 2009 — America inaugurated Mr. Barack Obama, the first president with brown skin. “Who could have ever envisioned that America would be in a monumental battle for life in the cross-hairs of an abortion controversy during his term of office?” asks Rev. Walter Hoye of Issues4Life.
“Abortion was illegal in 1964, but other forms of genocide such as sterilization and chemical manipulation in the execution of population control (although executed undercover) were common,” said Pastor Stephen Broden of Dallas, TX.
“Evidence of the ongoing eugenics and genocidal practices targeting our women and babies is apparent in the cases of Representative Daphne Campbell, a Democratic politician from South Florida who stood up for her pro-life stance and was challenged by other Democrats; and eugenics sterilization victim Elaine Riddick,” added Dr. Alveda King.
Prolife Advocate Catherine Davis concludes: “We applaud the state of Arizona for passing civil rights legislation that affords the baby protection like the Civil Rights Act provided women and blacks in America. As EPIDEMIC demonstrates the black community is being depopulated by abortion. We are working to make it stop!”
The leaders say that African Americans have been betrayed by those who are supposed to protect its citizens. More information is available at the National Black Prolife Coalition.
