Black pastor Walter B. Hoye II wants to get on board with the #BlackLivesMatter movement, but it troubles him how the movement ignores the leading cause of death among Black Americans – abortion.
Hoye, president of the Issues4LifeFoundation, said abortions on Black Americans outnumber the homicides of Black Americans by 69 to 1. Yet, little attention is drawn to ending the genocide of abortion in the Black community.
He uncovered some shocking data by comparing a 2013 report from the Violence Policy Center, which shows that there were 6,217 Black American homicides that year, and national abortion statistics from 2013 showing that there were 429,000 abortions on Black American women.
According to his breakdown of the numbers:
In other words, for every three Black babies born in America, two will be aborted.
The numbers get worse.
In 2013, there were an estimated 429,000 abortions in Black America.
This equates to …
35,750 abortions per month
8,250 abortions per week
1,175 abortions per day
49 abortions per hour
This amounts to 1 Black abortion every 74 seconds.
Hoye placed a lot of the blame on Planned Parenthood and its supporters.
