Black Pastor: If Black Lives Matter, Why are More Blacks Killed by Abortion Than by the Police?

A black pastor has a probing question for African-Americans, saying that violence against black people via abortion is worse than violence against black Americans from the police.

“In the past year, 136 young Black men have been killed in confrontations with police. However, the hypocrisy of the left is revealed in that, they ignore the continuing slaughter of innocent Black babies,” says Walter Hoye, President of the Issues4Life Foundation. “Neither should be ignored.”

“Totaling 20.4 million since Roe v. Wade and 429,000 in 2015, that’s 3,154 times as many Black lives taken by abortion each year as are killed by the police. Yet pro-choicers scream at the thought of defunding Planned Parenthood and its $550 million dollar a year government subsidy for its genocidal mission,” Hoye continues. “Meanwhile, the media ignores the contradictions between this harsh reality and the promises of the left, who fail to notice the suicidal implications for their own political futures.”

Hoye interviewed Dennis Howard, President of the Movement for a Better America, one on one to dig deeper. The conversation was eye opening.

Howard, who has written extensively on abortion demographics and shares his research with Black Pro-Life leaders, says: “Since 1992, Blacks have consistently voted 90% or more for Democratic candidates, delivering majorities of 10 million votes or more for the Democrats in presidential years. Which means that for their opponents to win, they have to garner 65% or more of the rest of the vote.”

“That’s next to impossible, as both McCain and Romney found out,” Howard added. “”The flaw in this strategy is that abortion has taken such a huge toll on future Black voters that the chances of continued success of this strategy are dim. More than half of those 20.4 million innocent Black babies killed by abortion would be of voting age today. That means at least 10 million missing young Black voters, and a serious dent in future Democrat margins.”

Still, Howard’s concern is not politics, but life.

Howard says, “It is simply ironic that, without abortion, the Democrats would be a shoo-in. So why do they persist in supporting what is clearly a genocidal policy? I once was a lifelong Democrat, but they lost me when the Clintons came along and signed on to their pro-abortion platform, which I saw as disastrous not just for Blacks, but for the whole country.”

From Hoye’s perspective, ending abortion is a matter of survival now. He concludes: “I can’t quit, the future of my people depends on meeting the needs of our women and children.”
