Thanks for a wonderful article. It tells a hard truth that is bitterly resisted in Black America. First of all, there is simple denial--as in "Well, whites have just as many abortions, but they go to private doctors, so nobody really knows." Then there's the "Maybe so, but it's racist to bring up stuff like this."
I know this because I worked for many years in a predominately Black college, where listening to students' abortion stories finally convinced me that the pro-choice position was a fraud and that abortion-on-demand debases those who are caught up in its web of killing. When I finally spoke out, my colleagues (and employers)were horrified
Like the breakdown of the African-American family, of which the abortion mania is a part, the destruction of so many unborn babies (possibly, as the article indicates, a majority of those conceived) is a "dirty little secret" in Black America. It will take churchmen of great integrity, African-American churchmen, to combat it effectively. But precious few of them will raise their voices this MLK Holiday.

"When I finally spoke out, my colleagues (and employers)were horrified."
What happened after that?

The main motivation of PP here is not, in my opinion, limiting the black population. It's money. It's a for-profit killing business, pure and simple. African-Americans are just easier targets, unfortunately. Their leaders won't speak out on this issue...
