African-American Pastor Horrified at How Many Black Babies Abortion Kills
LIFE NEWS ^ | Rebecca Downs

Posted on 04/14/2014 6:00:31 PM PDT by Morgana

The Rev. Elaine Flake of Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York has recently learned of and reacted to the statistics of black women having abortions in New York City.

Flake reacted in disbelief, initially wondering if the statistics were even true.

The Christian Post, reporting on the Rev., dedicates one paragraph to such statistics of black women, as well as links to a previous article of theirs:

As CP has reported, citing the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene: “Black women in New York City aborted more than half of their pregnancies in 2012, topping the number of abortions recorded by women of every other racial or ethnic group in the city.” The report revealed that more than any other ethnic group in NYC, black women were the leading abortion patients and also had the highest pregnancy and miscarriage rates.

revfloydflake2The Christian Post mostly focuses on Rev. Flake’s reactions to the abortion trend, as well as many other troubling statistics for the black community on marriage, miscarriages and out of wedlock pregnancies.

Millions of black babies have been aborted. The number amount to more than 16 million, actually. These rates create skewed ratio too, considering that, according to the 2010 census data, blacks made up 12.6% of the population. And, as Abort73.com broke down:

In 2009, a total of 286,623 blacks died in the U.S.14 That same year, an estimated 1.21 million abortions took place in the United States.15 If 35.4% were performed on black women, that means almost twice as many blacks were killed by abortion as by all other causes.

As the state health report mentions, it is not just that the abortion rate of black babies nationwide is alarming, but in New York City. As if such statistics could not be more of a cause for shock and concern, the rate at which black women abort their babies in New York City, the Reverend’s own back yard, is even more troubling.

In New York City, 37 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion in 2012. According to 41 Percent NYC, that’s nearly twice the national average. Queens, where Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York is located has an abortion rate that is lower than that, but only slightly so, at 35 percent.

These are overall abortion rates for New York City though. If the above statistics for New York City are not disturbing enough, the specifics for blacks in the area will be.

In New York City, black babies are more likely to be aborted than to be born. And, when we account for the rate of abortions specifically for blacks, it jumps to 42.4% of abortions.

Black women obviously need support then, but are they really getting it? Unfortunately, the answer may be that they are not getting as much help as truly needed.

Rev. Flake mentions that she is not aware of women in her church having dealt personally with abortion, since no one has ever gone to her:

CP suggested that with such a large congregation in Queens, it was likely some women belonging to The Greater Allen A.M.E Cathedral have had to personally deal with the issue of abortion. Pastor Flake agreed that it was likely, saying, “I would imagine, I’m not sure. No one has ever come to me, but I would think with that kind of percentage that that could be the case.”

Women are suffering in silence through the confusion of unplanned pregnancies and the pain of abortion while they lacked the necessary support. Let Rev. Elaine Flake be an example of the church being more involved to help women then.

New York is no stranger to high abortion rates and abortion scandals. Just recently, news broke out that abortion clinics in the state are inspected so infrequently, if at all, that tanning salons are inspected more often. In light of such scandalous news, the New York health official resigned.

Rev. Flake was in attendance at the Women’s Power Breakfast and participated in a “Black Church Panel,” along with her husband, who also leads the church alongside her. The two events were part of a conference organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.

As the leader of a mega-church of 23,000 people and participating at such events, Rev. Elaine Flake is no stranger to taking initiative it would seem. Now that she is aware of the rate of which her race is being killed off in her own city, perhaps she and others will answer the call to end this genocide of innocent black babies in the womb.

Now that she is aware of the rate of which her race is being killed off in her own city ...

... I'm willing to bet that she is now willing to blame white Republican men.

You voted for Democrats ‘Pastor’. KNOWING they are pro death. I don’t wanna hear your complaining about the results YOU helped empower. And I sorta doubt God hears you at all.

Well say hello to Margaret Sanger - killing black babies was the whole founding purpose of Planned Parenthood!

The Rev. Elaine Flake is surprised by the numbers?

One has to wonder whether many black leaders really want to know the truth.

it’s amazing the willful ignorance among some people. Our 40 Days for Life target abortion facility shares a parking lot with a church that meets in a theatre. 40 Days people have met with the Pastor who “doesn’t get political.” Dude, they are killing babies in your parking lot.

The question becomes the following:

Do they HATE their own CHILDREN more than they HATE REPUBLICANS. If that’s the case, then they will continue aborting, without hesitation.

Gee Reverend,

Isn’t that the original plan of PP founder Margaret Sanger? To purify the white race?

Where have you been, indeed!
