Abortion’s Twisted Logic of Racism

ABORTION OF BLACK BABIES HAS DESTROYED THE EQUIVALENTOF THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF BLACKS IN 1960 (Friday Church News Notes, July 15, 2022, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) – The following is excerpted from “Abortion’s twisted logic of racism,” Washington Examiner, Feb. 28, 2020: “While many positive accomplishments by African Americans are now brought to our attention every February [during Black History Month], there are those who exploit this annual event to further their own political agenda, which is actually counter to the historical advancement of blacks in American history. Among them is Planned Parenthood. The nation’s largest abortion provider has done a masterful job of creating a false impression that its programs somehow benefit the black community. … Abortion in America has contributed to the greatest decline in the black population since the first black slaves arrived in the Americas in the 1600s. According to U.S. census data, there were 18,871,831 black American citizens in 1960. Since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973, abortion has killed an estimated 20 million black babies–more than the entire black population of 1960. How does this benefit the black community? … Claims that the pro-life community is a bunch of white supremacists are completely baseless. Such calumny cannot erase the truth that abortion has been used to control the black birth rate, and Planned Parenthood has led that charge. … Only in a world of twisted logic could organizations and individuals working tirelessly to save black lives from abortion be called ‘racist’ for their efforts.”
