Abortion has many dirty secrets. Particularly relevant during Black History Month is the fact that the abortion industry disproportionately targets blacks. African Americans represent 12 percent of the population but endure 32 percent of the abortions in our country. Often we hear mention of the fact that the black community has been hit much harder by HIV/AIDS than the general American population. Sadly, it's true. Consider, then, the Life Education And Resource Network's (LEARN) findings that, since 1973, more than twice as many blacks have died from abortion than from heart disease, cancer, accidents, violent crimes, and AIDS combined. Given the extremely political nature of abortion, jarring findings like this are kept secret. Black History Month shouldn't be the only time that we expose them and commit ourselves to pro-life renewal.For more, see here. Rhetoric like this more than cancells out the joy and excitement expressed in my previous entry.

I can't adequately express my shock at this: blackgenocide.org. Who is alleged with performing genocide against black people? Planned Parenthood. The Family Research Council today carries the headline, "Abortion Disproportionately Targets African Americans"
