For every 10 black babies born in New York State almost 8 are aborted according the most recent vital statistics. In New York City for every 10 black babies born 9 are aborted. Nationwide black babies are five times more likely to be aborted than white babies. While the black community represents just 14% of the total population it bears the greatest burden of abortion. It is because of abortion that many black communities are no longer replacing themselves.
Over 16 million black babies have been aborted since 1973 and the untold millions of babies that would have been born to those children are missing too.
Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
How much do black lives really matter to people who are willing to ignore the gross systemic oppression of the black community that is abortion?
