Sadly, 50 years later, African-Americans are still facing a massive injustice. Abortion is the #1 killer in black America. Blacks now have the right to drink from any water fountain we desire, and we can go to any school we work hard to get accepted to. However, those rights pale in comparison to the right to life. Over 13 million black lives have been terminated through abortion. The privileges our ancestors fought for do us little good if we are steadily decreasing as a people group.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in our nation. The organization Protecting Black Life reports that a 2010 census shows that 79% of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African-American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods. This is the fruit of an organization that’s been rooted in the philosophy of eugenics since its founding in 1916.
