Working under the auspices of civil rights, the abortion industry has preyed upon Black America. The success of the abortionist among Blacks in this country has been so great that now abortion is the number one killer of African-Americans. Pastors are being asked to step up and preach the word in their defense.
Pastors urged to fight abortion among blacks

NASHVILLE (BP) — The abortion industry has infiltrated the African American community by cloaking the procedure as a woman’s civil right and embedding the issue into politics, African American pro-life advocate Arnold Culbreath told Baptist Press.
“The abortion industry shamelessly slithered into the black American community on the heels of the ‘free love’ movement, soon after Woodstock, and at the outset of the civil rights movement,” said Culbreath, urban outreach director for Protecting Black Life, an affiliate of the Life Issues Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio, working to end abortion through education.
The abortion industry “duped black women into believing that abortion was their civil right,” Culbreath said. “Not only was this misguided ideology deeply imbedded into the fabric of our community then, but we are still working to dispel the deception of this deadly dogma today.”
The industry’s tactic is one reason abortion is the leading cause of death among African Americans, Culbreath told Baptist Press.
“Unbeknown to many, abortion remains the leading cause of death among black Americans, higher than all other causes of death combined,” Culbreath said. “In 2008, the most recent statistics released in 2011 reveal there were 289,072 black deaths from all causes excluding abortion. But in that same year there were 360,000 surgical black abortions.
