WASHINGTON, D.C., October 16, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Bishop Martin D. Holley, Auxiliary Bishop of Washington, issued a statement responding to a report by Planned Parenthood’s Guttmacher Institute showing that black women have abortions at five times the rate of white women.
“The number one cause of death in the African American community has been abortion. We have lost over 13 million lives. To put that in perspective, it is one third of our present Black population,” wrote the bishop. “It [abortion] clearly must be at the heart and center of our discussion of the survival of African American people.”
…”As an African American, I am saddened by evidence that Black women continue to be targeted by the abortion industry. The loss of any child from abortion is a tragedy, but we must ask: Why are minority children being aborted at such disproportionate rates?” Bishop Holley said
