pro-life billboards in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood depicting the likeness of President Obama and reading: "every 21 minutes our next possible leader is aborted." This is clearly a reference to the unusually high abortion rate among African-American women and the placement of the billboards in the overwhelmingly African-American neighborhood of Englewood is also clear evidence that the billboards were specifically designed to call attention to what some people are now calling the "Black Genocide."
I hope pro-lifers continue to make the case that abortion has a disproportionate impact on poor people and people of color. Many people today probably do not remember that there once was a very vocal pro-life Left, including many veterans of the Civil Rights movement. However, a number of these activists have either passed away or changed their opinions. The Rev. Jesse Jackson, for example, once penned an interesting article in 1977 that was critical of legalized abortion, but he would later change his position in the 1980s in an attempt to become the Democratic nominee for president.
However, it is clear that there are still plenty of African-American leaders who are willing to take up the cause of the pro-life movement and are now becoming more vocal about the devastating impact abortion has had on the black community. Additionally, more people are becoming aware of the dark heart of the abortion movement and its pioneers, such as the despicable racist and eugenicist Margaret Sanger. Revealing the truth about the ideology behind the abortion movement, either in its statist or libertarian forms, is essential to winning over more converts to the pro-life cause, especially among those on the Left who, if they are truly serious about protecting the weak, should join the crusade against abortion.
