Black Babies Matter, Right? Silence.

An amazing video.

As a group of medical personnel stood outside a hospital, proudly protesting in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, a bold pro-life witness walked by and stunned them all into silence.

That took some guts and if anyone knows what the woman who comes forward to kneel then retreats is doing, please let us know because we have no idea.

Abortion impacts African Americans at a higher rate than any other population group. In 2011, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released an Abortion Surveillance Report. According to that report, black women make up 14 percent of the childbearing population. Yet, 36 percent of all abortions were obtained by black women. At a ratio of 474 abortions per 1,000 live births, black women have the highest ratio of any group in the country.

When you use those percentages, it indicates that of the over 44 million abortions since the 1973 Roe vs Wade Supreme Court ruling, 19 million black babies were aborted. African Americans are just under 13 percent of United States population.

White women are five times less likely to have an abortion than black women. Perhaps it is a matter of availability. A study by Protecting Black Lives, in 2012, found that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of minority communities.

(h/t to one of our awesome readers for letting us know about the video.)

    He makes an excellent point. Biologically speaking, unborn babies are living human beings. Those in the medical profession should know this as they had to study biology. Abortion is a violation of the Hippocratic Oath.
