Black pro-life leader Ryan Bomberger called out President Joe Biden and Democrat leaders Wednesday for their hypocrisy on basic human rights and racism, saying abortion is the “ultimate act of voter suppression.”
Biden says he wants to stop voter suppression of African Americans, but his pro-abortion actions are doing exactly that, Bomberger said at a press conference ahead of a U.S. Senate vote on Democrats’ voting legislation, Breitbart reports.
“You want to have voting rights, President Biden. Killing voters before they’re born is the ultimate act of voter suppression,” the pro-life leader responded.
Bomberger could have been aborted. His mother conceived him after she was raped, and he later was adopted into a loving home, he said. Today, he is the founder of the Radiance Foundation, an Emmy Award-winning creative professional, a sought-after pro-life speaker and a husband and father of four children, including two who were adopted.
“I’m the 1 percent that’s used to justify 100 percent of abortions,” Bomberger said, referring to how he was conceived in rape. “But the circumstances of our conception don’t change the condition of our worth.”

Unborn African Americans frequently are targeted for abortions, too. Bomberger cited New York City health statistics showing that, in 2018, more unborn black babies were aborted in Manhattan than were born alive. Manhattan also happens to be where the headquarters of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in the U.S., is located.
“Planned Parenthood is the leading killer of black lives, taking an estimated 360 lives every single day. Yet now they claim to be an anti-racist organization – shows what a fraud the anti-racist movement is,” he said.
“We live in a society where systemic racism is blamed for every negative racial disparity. Yet pro-abortion activists pretend that racism doesn’t exist in the one industry that has killed millions of black lives for a living!” Bomberger added.
Linking the abortion industry’s and Democrat Party’s racist past with their modern-day abortion advocacy, he continued:
“The Democrat Party, once the party of slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow, and separate and unequal, is now the party of limitless abortion,” he asserted, noting that voting rights activist and civil rights leader Fannie Lou Hamer referred to abortion as genocide.
Biden made reference to Hamer during his remarks in Atlanta, Georgia, on January 11, during which he urged Senate Democrats to kill the filibuster rule to enable passage of his legislation to federalize elections in the United States.
“Yes, Hamer was unapologetically pro-life, pro-adoption and anti-Planned Parenthood,” Bomberger observed.
If Biden and other politicians want to stop racism, Bomberger said they need to start by ending abortion.
“Overturning Roe, or as I like to say, equalizing all humans, is the civil rights fight of our day,” he said. “Pro-abortion activists criticizing the passage of pro-life legislation – laws that recognize the humanity and inherent worth of an entire group of people – is like segregationists lamenting civil rights bills.”
“No group of humans is harder hit by the social injustice of abortion than black lives,” Bomberger said.
While abortions hurt families of every race and color, black Americans have a disproportionately high number of abortions compared to other racial groups. 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.
Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, about 63 million unborn babies have been aborted, approximately 20 million of whom were black.
