Toni McFadden knows the lies that the abortion industry uses to target black women and their unborn babies.
She was one of them.
“At 18, when I did not yet know the truth, I gave into the lies of the abortion industry and aborted my first child. I have since dedicated my life to ensuring others don’t miss out on hope and a future,” McFadden wrote at Townhall.
So it frustrates her when people accuse her of betraying her race because she voted for President Donald Trump.
The minority outreach and healthy relationships director with Students for Life of America, McFadden said she always votes pro-life first because she knows first-hand how abortion destroys African American families.
“Do you know what the No. 1 killer of Blacks is? It’s not black on black crime, police brutality, guns, drugs, or heart disease, cancer. It’s abortion, which has killed more of us than AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined,” she wrote.
Although Black Lives Matter and Democratic Party leaders say they fight for black Americans, they do nothing to stop abortions – sometimes the opposite, McFadden continued.

“President Donald Trump made gains with black voters in 2020, including with black women,” she wrote. “Yet the Democratic Party still takes my demographic for granted and expects to win my vote, and the votes of black people like me in Georgia, with promises of fewer members of my community surviving in the womb.”
The Democratic Party platform supports abortions without limits and wants to force taxpayers to fund them. It also supports the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood, which has placed nearly 80 percent of its abortion facilities within walking distance of minority neighborhoods.
Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was a racist and eugenicist, as was Marie Stopes, the founder of the British-based abortion chain MSI Reproductive Choices, McFadden pointed out.
The impact of their beliefs has wreaked devastation on the black community for decades, she continued.
Since 1973 when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade, an estimated 20 million unborn black babies have been aborted in America. Census data indicates that African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population, but they have nearly 40 percent of all abortions. And New York City health statistics show that more African American babies are aborted in the city than are born most years.
The long-term population impact for the black community is frightening. Michael Novak, the George F. Jewett scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, explained that without abortion “… America’s black community would now number 41 million persons. It would be 35 percent larger than it is currently. Abortion has swept through the black community cutting down every fourth member.”
She said she does not understand how anyone can call her a racist when her passion is to save the black community, her community.
“If we truly believe that Black Lives Matter, then we must also advocate for how Preborn Black Lives Matter,” she wrote. “While in Baltimore on August 5th, I painted ‘Black Preborn Lives Matter’ with Students for Life and the Frederick Douglass Foundation. Our messages were ultimately washed away—while others remained—though I still hope the community is hearing our message even if we are silenced.”
