Here’s a topic for an in-depth discussion during Black History Month. There are more black babies killed in the womb than born alive in New York City.

Black women kill their children at higher rates than white and Hispanic women, but in New York City, the numbers are even more shocking. Life News reported that for every 1,000 black babies born, abortionists kill 1,200.

The new pregnancy statistics come from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene for 2013. The shocking results show that 54.6 percent of black babies in healthy pregnancies were aborted that year. 

This is a very modest decrease from what the data showed in 2011, when 55.1 percent of black babies were lost to abortion in New York City. In comparison, that year 265 white babies were aborted for every 1,000 born alive in the city, and 517 Hispanic/Latino babies were aborted for every 1,000 born alive.

Walter B. Hoye II, president of the Issues4Life Foundation that mobilizes black leaders for the pro-life cause, urges Black-American leaders to take note of the devastating toll abortion on demand has on the Black community.

The civil rights industry doesn’t seem interested in the precious unborn. 

Last year, a group of black pro-lifers asked the Smithsonian Institution to remove a bust of Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood founder, from the National Portrait Gallery. The museum declined the request.

“These census results clearly show that Planned Parenthood continues to pursue the eugenics philosophy of its founder, Margaret Sanger, who believed that Blacks and the poor were ‘unfit’ to reproduce,” Life Issues Institute executive director Bradley Mattes said. “She dedicated her life to controlling the population of these ‘undesirables’ by advancing birth control and sterilization in their neighborhoods.”

  1. If this does not shock the conscience, what will?

  2. “….more black babies killed in the womb than born alive in New York City.”

    I’m thinking that taking down that dastardly Confederate flag did little to help this situation? Seriously, how much more “cultural decline” can America sustain?

    There will be a ‘price to pay,’ boys and girls! There are none innocent, no not one. We are ‘enlightening and evolving’ ourselves right onto the “ash heap of history!”

    Lincoln summed it up almost 200 years ago: “….a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

    “Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.”

    The “civil war” of yesterday, has been replaced with our current “culture war.” America survives NOT the current path of this war!!

  3. I wrote this in 2012….of course it did no good, but I’ll keep saying it even after he’s gone because the mind-set is the same for anyone who would replace him from the Left.

    Do you think those who support
    A woman’s right to “choose”
    Actually have you in mind?
    It’s really just a ruse.

    Do you think the one who says
    You should vote for change
    And then supports a baby’s death…
    Now doesn’t that sound strange?

    Do you think
    those who support
    babies (mostly black)
    to be torn
    from their mother’s womb
    really have your back?
    Do you think that one more program
    Will get you outta this mess?
    One more hand out instead of up…
    But still you have less.
    Now think young generation
    With all your life ahead
    Look back at the degradation
    And where it has led.
    Do you think your great-grandma
    As the first recipient
    Of the program started back in the day
    Thought that it meant…
    Decades more of slavery
    Of an “acceptable” kind
    Do you think future bondage
    Is what she had in mind?
    Don’t think programs
    And more handouts.
    Think “We will overcome.”
    What Dr. King was about.

    Please think about the past
    And see how far we’ve come
    No, we’re not there yet
    But the battle can be won

    So think on this election day
    With your heart, mind and soul.
    Let freedom be your only choice
    And liberty be your goal.
