Pro-life Leader Walter Hoye Walks the Walk

by Gibbons J. Cooney
The Catholic World Report

Reverend Walter Hoye made headlines in 2009 when he was arrested for passing out pro-life information at an abortion facility in Oakland, California. Rev. Hoye’s peaceful action earned him a 30-day sentence in Alameda County’s Santa Rita Jail. His conviction has since been overturned.

Hoye’s motivation was, and continues to be, the horrific rate of abortion in the African-American community, a rate so high that it has been described as genocide. Rev. Hoye’s website states: “Abortion, which has taken the lives of more Black Americans than heart disease, cancer, strokes, accidents, diabetes, homicide, and chronic lower respiratory diseases combined, is the number one (1) cause of death in Black America,” and he provides the numbers to prove it.
