Black pro-life leader Jonathan Alexandre, Esq., slammed the billion-dollar abortion industry for making a profit off of the killing of unborn black babies recently, saying, “When we see a beautiful Black face, abortionists see a dollar sign.”
Alexandre, the senior counsel for governmental affairs at Liberty Counsel and Liberty Counsel Action, spoke about the devastation that abortion has wreaked on the African American community during a press conference Jan. 19 with other pro-life leaders, Live Action News reports.
Marking the 49th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Alexandre said the abortion industry has been targeting unborn black babies since its beginning.
“When we see a beautiful Black face, Planned Parenthood’s founder says says she wants to get rid of that undesirable race,” he said, pointing to founder Margaret Sanger’s discriminatory views. “When we see a beautiful Black face, they see a part of town where they can build an abortion center and find an area where they can lure in desperate mothers to terminate their pregnancy.”

His comment refers to research from Life Issues Institute that found 86 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are located in or near African American and Latino neighborhoods.
As a result, the abortion rate among black women is almost five times higher than it is among white women, according to the Guttmacher Institute, and an estimated 20 million unborn African American babies have been aborted since 1973.
“When we see a beautiful Black face, abortionists see a way to make a profit by killing it. When we see a beautiful Black face, the abortion industry manufacturers a pill and then mails it to the mother in order to end this life,” he continued, according to Live Action.
“When you and I see a beautiful Black face, the abortion industry sees organs, hearts, lungs, livers that they can extract and procure during abortion and then sell,” Alexandre said.
Every day, abortion kills more than 250 unborn black babies in America, stopping their hearts by drowning, poisoning or ripping them limb from limb, he continued.
“When we see a beautiful Black face, they see their next victim,” Alexandre said, ending with a demand, “Keep your hands off beautiful Black babies!”
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. And New York City health statistics show that more African American babies are aborted in the city than are born most years.
