Black pro-life leader says abortion ratios point to racism

.- Abortion is a multi-million dollar a year business that makes most of its money by killing black children, says Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union.

In a statement released yesterday, Gardner called on African Americans to open their eyes to the fact that more than 1,000 black children die each day by abortion.

“These children are denied their most basic human right -- which is the right to life; a right which our ancestors so proudly worked for, marched for and many of them died for,” she said.

Since abortion was legalized in the U.S., more than 44 million children have been killed by abortion, and 15 million of them were black children, Gardner pointed out. More than 37 percent of all abortions are performed on black women annually. Last year, more than 400,000 black babies were aborted.

“Abortion has become the number one killer of black people in this country -- killing more African Americans than accidents, heart disease, stroke, crimes, HIV-AIDS and all other deaths combined!” she said.

“What bothers me is we are very quick as a people to recognize racism everywhere else except the one place that truly affects all of us,” she said. “Most blacks will agree that racism is sill very much alive, yet say nothing when abortion facilities are placed purposefully in minority and poor communities. This is no accident!”

“Abortion providers need us to make their blood money,” she said in her statement. “If we as black people say no to abortion, the industry will cease to exist.”

“We are the underground railroad of our time, and it's up to us to make abortion a thing of our historical past,” she said. “If we stand united against this horrific practice ... we shall overcome this, too.”
