Originally published on Christian Newswire, Feb 4, 2010 — Georgia Right to Life and the Radiance Foundation today announced at a press conference the launch of the Endangered Species Project, an initiative to increase awareness of the impact of abortion on Georgia’s minority communities and women.
The campaign began with the placement of billboards in Dekalb and Fulton counties where the majority of abortions occur. According to Catherine Davis, Director of Minority Outreach, over 67% of the abortions in Georgia occur in those two counties. Ms Davis maintains that this is by design.
“Planned Parenthood’s Negro Project is succeeding”, Davis said. “They targeted blacks in order to control their birthrate, limiting the growth of populations they ‘don’t want too many of’ as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg revealed was the goal behind Roe v. Wade (Women on the Court, New York Times Magazine, July 2009).”
Georgia leads the country in the number of reported abortions performed on black women, 18,901 in 2008 alone. Davis maintains the impact of abortion is so great that black children are an endangered species.
In addition to the billboards a website was also launched this week — www.TooManyAborted.com –where the motives for abortion in America are discussed. Ryan Bomberger, co-founder of The Radiance Foundation stated, “TooManyAborted.com is the response to the rhetoric of ‘reducing abortions’. Regardless of race, religious and civic community leaders and the general public need to understand the destructive nature of the abortion industry and get outraged by the truth.”
Dr. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr. commented, “My Uncle Martin once stated, ‘The Negro cannot win if he is willing to sell the future of his children for his personal and immediate comfort and safety.’ Those words are still true today. After all, how can the dream survive if we let them take our children?”
In closing, Dr. Alveda King noted, “Abortion is the civil rights issue of the 21st century.”
