Over 86 years, the Ku Klux Klan lynched 3,446 blacks – a figure matched in less than four days if tallying the number of black babies who are aborted.
Walter Hoye, founder and president of the Issues4Life Foundation, shared those statistics at a press conference where black clergy and other leaders gathered in response to the guilty verdict in the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of murdering three newborn babies.
“Right now to give some of us just a perspective of the impact of abortion on demand in the black community, according to the archives of the Tuskegee Institute, from 1882 to 1968 – 86 years – the Ku Klux Klan lynched 3,446 Negroes,” Hoye said. “While it took the Klan 86 years to accomplish this, abortion on demand in America accomplishes that is less than 4 days.”
Hoye’s numbers are based on the Guttmacher Institute’s fact sheet on induced abortion in the United States. That fact feet shows that in 2008, 2.1 million abortions were performed in the U.S. Of those, 432,000 of those abortions were performed on black women. Using those figures, in three days 3,550 black babies were aborted. In four days, the total would be 4,734 aborted black babies.
“Since 1973, abortion on demand in black America has taken more lives than homicides, heart disease, diabetes, cancer and HIV/AIDS combined and has become the No. 1 cause of death in the black community,” Hoye said.
“The facts are clear,” he said. “The numbers don’t lie. Abortion on demand is a holocaust.”
Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, said she and her colleagues “pray for the soul of Kermit Gosnell” and others who are in “this heinous industry.”
King said the Gosnell trial has shown America “that abortion does murder women and babies.”
“We are here to say that not just today, but we are not going to rest, as they didn’t rest during the Civil Rights movement until it was finished, as the abolitionist did not rest with that crime against humanity during slavery.
“We will not rest,” Parker said.
Dear Cecile Richards,
Please stop abusing civil rights history to justify your present-day killing fields. Martin Luther King Jr’s memory is not a dummy that you can manipulate like a ventriloquist. Although he regrettably accepted the inaugural Margaret Sanger Award from the nation’s largest birth control chain in 1966, he wasn’t praising the slaughter of millions that Planned Parenthood was plotting to make central to its mission.
The nation’s abortionist-in-chief tweeting about Juneteenth, a celebration of the abolition of the dehumanizing institution of slavery, is like China celebrating freedom of speech. “No one is free until all are free” apparently doesn’t apply to the millions of innocent human beings Planned Parenthood grinds in industrial garbage disposals, flushes down drains or stuffs into biohazard waste bags.
As with everything else with your billion-dollar empire, one has to put things into a truthful context. In 1966, abortion wasn’t legal. MLK wasn’t praising the dismembering and suctioning of defenseless human beings. He, like many others during the 60s when Planned Parenthood feigned advocacy of strong families, was duped by an industry birthed in eugenic racism, that preached overpopulation mythology, demanded discriminatory immigration policies, and promoted forced sterilizations through its state eugenics boards. By the way, Elaine Riddick sends her love. Thanks to Planned Parenthood, she was one of over 60,000 people sterilized as part of your organization’s “proud” history. If you want to accurately depict history, Maafa21 is a great resource.
I know you suffer from mythomania, but do you distrust women so much that you have to falsify history to champion abortion? You were a history major in college, so I’m sure you know your website’s contention that “women couldn’t vote in Margaret Sanger’s America” is a complete lie. The 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920. Sanger was born in 1879 and died in 1966. Women obviously voted in “Sanger’s America”. This is only one of many lies and distortions on Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer-funded website, not to mention the omission of Sanger’s racist, elitist, and Nazi-influencing eugenics pseudoscience.
I know. I know. I know. Today’s Planned Parenthood isn’t like it was during Margaret Sanger’s days. And you’re right. It’s worse. Back then, black communities and other designated “unfit” citizens were targeted with birth control. Today, your blood-soaked abortion empire kills the “unwanted” over 330,000 times a year. Yes, I can already hear you proudly proclaim: “Three percent!” As if killing human beings only 3% of the time is okay. I wonder if the American public would be okay with just 3% of their food tainted with toxic sewage. It’s only three percent.
Your propaganda is toxic sewage. And it’s been poisoning generations of Americans to believe that your billion-dollar abortion business (funded by half a billion taxpayer dollars annually) is the savior of women and the poor. No amount of seeming beneficence (e.g. breast cancer exams) makes up for the violent mutilation of hundreds of thousands every year. Even the KKK runs bake sales.
By the way, you have plenty of other civil rights figures (and organizations like the National Urban League and the NAACP) who you can exploit to advance your mission of carnage. The NAACP’s W.E.B. Du Bois is a perfect spokesperson for Planned Parenthood. He joined your organization’sNegro Project railing against the “masses of ignorant negroes” and compared the quality of black people that deserved to live with the quality of vegetables. He even penned an obituary for Joseph Stalin, calling the tyrant who murdered millions of his own citizens “a great man” who “seldom lost his courtesy or balance.” Du Bois knew Stalin was a ruthless killer who purged his country of dissenters. Even the NAACP, as overtaken by communist sympathizers as it was, ousted its co-founder from the civil rights organization for such extremism. Du Bois went on to promote racial segregation, renounce his US citizenship and move to Ghana and praise government leaders who used their power to bully, silence or even kill the opposition.
He’s a great fit for your organization. Children born from “unintended” pregnancies daily prove your organization wrong. They are the opposition. They’re wanted. They’re loved. They accomplish great things. Steve Jobs, an adoptee, was glad he “didn’t end up as an abortion.” Abortion survivor Gianna Jessen’s story has spoken to millions around the globe. I’m one you and your organization continue to demand should have been aborted. I’m the one percent used to justify 100% of abortions. But my biological mother showed the courage that Planned Parenthood daily denies women possess—the incredible ability to overcome the most difficult circumstances and to triumph over violence.
But your organization survives on violence. Daily, these casualties are simply labeled a “service” and are tally marks for your Annual Report. You tout a faux “War on Women” yet wage an ongoing battle on girls and women every day, spending millions making sure they are misinformed and that those who offer life-affirming alternatives are maligned. Not one single human being has ever died (or been killed) inside America’s pregnancy care centers. But millions have perished inside your abortion mills. Even women are sacrificed to your god of abortion. Tonya Reaves was merely collateral damage for your organization. One of your abortionists allowed her to bleed to death from a botched abortion for over 5 hours. “Women’s rights” didn’t apply to her.
Perhaps that’s why Planned Parenthood supports NY Governor Andrew Cuomo’s radical pro-Gosnell abortion bill decriminalizing all abortions. New York City, the home of Planned Parenthood, is ground zero for the epidemic of abortion in the black community. Sixty percent of black pregnancies end in abortion; more black babies are aborted than are born alive. Abortion, no matter the race, is a tragedy but Cuomo’s back-alley abortion expansion bill will ensure even more death in communities already ravaged by poverty, fatherlessness and violence.
Mrs. Richards, you’ve done Margaret Sanger proud. You now manage a corporate welfare giant that rids the world of Sanger’s disdainfully termed “human weeds”. And you’ve been handsomely rewarded for putting a false face on abortion—a salary of $583,323 that you can willfully “suspend”when you want to campaign for the Party of abortion. Former Planned Parenthood CEOs would have killed for your salary. Well, actually, they did, and settled for a lot less.
Hopefully, the American public won’t settle for your rehashed Sanger diatribes that diminish our humanity. The next time you want to talk about freedom, please wipe the blood off your fingertips before you tweet about human dignity.

Abortion is control—population control. And today, the black population in America has only experienced more poverty, exponentially higher STDs, increasing “unintended pregnancies”, epidemic fatherlessness (72.3%), and abortions of 40% of black pregnancies nationwide. As we reveal in our TooManyAborted.com campaigns, black babies are aborted up to 6 times the rate of the majority population such as in NYC where more black babies are aborted than are born alive.
Well, I was one of those “ugly black babies”. And my life wasn’t worth defending by the nation’s oldest civil rights group. And today, that same organization is trying to silence me because I’m simply telling the truth. They enable the destruction of black lives, not just through their abortion advocacy, but also due to their unwillingness to address the epidemic of fatherlessness and the deterioration of black two-parent married families (amounting to less than 30% of households in the black community today).
As typified by the reaction of Catherine Davis of Georgia Right to Life, abortion-reduction talk does not go over well with some anti-abortion activists, either. Davis, an African American and Christian, coordinates outreach to the black community. Abortion-reduction talk, she says, is a “smokescreen” to obscure the real problems: the legal availability of abortion, and what she sees as the targeting of predominantly black areas with Planned Parenthood clinics.
Davis and her allies wield some alarming statistics. African Americans have about 39% of the country’s abortions, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, despite making up 13% of the population. Nearly 40% of black pregnancies end in abortion. Add up all the major causes of death among blacks — heart disease, diabetes, cancer, violence, etc. — and they do not match the number of abortions. This has fueled the new rhetoric bombs such as “womb lynchings” used by pastors, including Stephen Broden of Dallas, and “genocide,” frequently uttered by Christian anti-abortion activists such as Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr. http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/opinion/forum/2010-05-03-column03_ST_N.htm
Abortion opponent, Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, has produced the film Maafa 21, documenting the roots of the abortion-rights movement in America and its impact on the African American community. According to Crutcher’s Web site:
When slavery ended, their welcome was over. America’s wealthy elite had decided it was time for them to disappear and they were not particular about how it might be done. What you are about to see is that the plan these people set in motion 150 years ago is still being carried out today.
The film’s trailer opens with chilling quotes from American eugenicists like Sanger. Her attitude toward the “inferior” black race is startling for a woman born in Corning, New York, to a devout Catholic family of eleven children.
Private adoptions of white infants (and international adoptions) can be quite costly. The variance in cost between African-American babies and other races is quite vast, sometimes costing less by tens of thousands of dollars. There are many black children in foster care that can be adopted through the state at no cost to the parent(s). Until recently in Georgia (and still in many other states), one of the five factors listed as “Special Needs” adoptions was: being black. Black children remain in foster care at higher rates than other races and are disproportionately represented (27% of those entering foster care are black even though black children comprise only 15% of the U.S. child population).
Maafa 21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America is a 2009 pro-life documentary film which draws a connection between the targeting of African Americans by the eugenics movement in the United States in the 19th and 20th centuries, and the modern-day prevalence of abortion among African Americans. The film argues that abortion is an attempted genocide or maafa of black people, and has been so since the 19th century.
