CURE’s National Clergy Relations Director, Rev. Derek McCoy, testified before the House Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice on behalf of the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA).
This measure would bar discrimination against unborn babies based on their race or sex.

Rev. McCoy said that as tragic as deaths from black-on-black violence are, these deaths “pale in comparison to the murders taking place within the wombs of black women every day throughout our nation.”
Black women account for a third of all abortions in the U.S.
Rev. McCoy also talked about how sex-selective abortions have affected countries like China.
Rep. Trent Franks, chairman of the subcommittee and PRENDA sponsor, asked Rev. McCoy how well he thinks we’ve protected the most vulnerable of our society. Watch the brief clip for his answer.
