RISING UP: THE BLACK PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT ASSERTS ITSELF
SAN FRANCISCO, January 23, 2013 (Zenit.org).
The thousands of pro-lifers who gather in San Francisco this Saturday for the west coast Walk for Life will hear from Reverend Clenard Childress, the founder and director of www.BlackGenocide.org, a Web site designed to reach the African-American community with the truth about abortion.
ZENIT contacted Reverend Childress for his view on the pro-life movement in the United States, as the nation marks 40 years since Roe vs. Wade.
ZENIT: You assert that abortion is particularly destructive for the black community. Why so?
Childress: African Americans make up 12.4% of the population but 37% of all abortions; 52% of all African American pregnancies end in abortion; 1,786 African American babies are killed each day by the abortion industry. (Source? The Allen Gutmacher [institute]) (center for disease control)
