Abortion’s Awful Averages

Planned Parenthood performed 332,278 abortions in the U.S in 2009, the first year of our first black president’s term in office. That’s a national average of one baby killed every 95 seconds. ›› read more

Alarmingly, these abortions are disproportionately of ethnic minority babies. According to Susan Cohen in a 2008 article, “the abortion rate for black women is almost five times that for white women.” Cohen also noted that “At every income level, black women have higher abortion rates than whites or Hispanics, except for women below the poverty line, where Hispanic women have slightly higher rates than black women.”

It is strategic, then, that pro-life billboards, featuring the image of Barack Obama, are going up around Chicago, his hometown, that say  “Every 21 minutes, our next possible LEADER is aborted,” with a caption directing viewers to “thatsabortion.com.”

    It’s a shame that we have not improved in this area. President Obama should be ashamed of himself and his administration. The President seems to forget that he, himself, has two daughters. Would he be okay knowing that his daughters may abort his grandchildren. There’s consequences for everything we do, and our country will pay. If it were not for the prayers for this country, I believe we would be in worse circumstances than we already are in. The abortion problem is so bad that I incuded discussion about it in my book that was recently published. The book is called “Girl Talk – The Consequences Of Sexual Promiscuity . . . What Your Girlfriends Don’t Or Won’t Tell You, And What Your Mother Should Have Told You.” Check it out.
