Over two dozen pro-life black leaders came together and hosted an event at the National Press Club where, among other things, they called on Congress to hold investigative hearings on the abortion industry in the wake of all the horrific details that came out of the Gosnell trial.
One such black pro-lifer at this event was Walter Hoye, founder and president of the Issues4Life Foundation. He reminded everyone of who the real racists are:
“Right now to give some of us just a perspective of the impact of abortion on demand in the black community, according to the archives of the Tuskegee Institute, from 1882 to 1968 – 86 years – the Ku Klux Klan lynched 3,446 Negroes. While it took the Klan 86 years to accomplish this, abortion on demand in America accomplishes that is less than 4 days…Since 1973, abortion on demand in black America has taken more lives than homicides, heart disease, diabetes, cancer and HIV/AIDS combined and has become the No. 1 cause of death in the black community. The facts are clear. The numbers don’t lie. Abortion on demand is a holocaust.”
The fact that the abortion industry is rooted in population reduction, racism and eugenics is well-known. The founder of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger said, “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” She was one of eleven children and associated having large families with all sorts of social ills. She thought that if people would just keep their families limited to two children, we wouldn’t have to deal with domestic violence, poverty or unemployment.
Sanger’s solution, which was shared by other eugenicists, was to curb the population rate of those who were “unfit” and “feebleminded” through the distribution of birth control and access to sterilization and eventually abortion.
She talked about ways to solve the “Negro problem” in the U.S. since she viewed them as “human weeds” and “reckless breeders.” She even thought that there were some people who were so “unfit” that they should not be allowed to have any kids at all and should submit to forced sterilization.
In her opinion, those who chose sterilization should be rewarded. She was only being consistent with Darwinism and its “survival of the fittest” mentality, since she viewed blacks as inferior to whites and therefore “unfit.” For the past several decades, the left have cleverly turned this into a women’s rights, “my body, my choice” issue and have conveniently forgotten about the original racist agenda.
It’s great to see these black leaders taking this stand and demanding their leaders put an end to black genocide.
