It is a known fact that the majority of Planned Parenthood clinics are in the areas where there is a predominantly African-American population. It is also a known fact that the percentage of aborted African-American babies is drastically disproportionate to the percentage of African-American women in this country. It would not be hard to deduce from these facts and others that racism has a part in the continuing rise of African-American abortions. It is also not hard to see, as one writer put it, that the abortion industry is decimating the black community.
This past weekend, John Piper preached a sermon, When Abortion is Racism, in which he decried the inherent racism in the increasing disproportionate numbers of abortions among African-Americans. May the holocaust of the unborn be a continuing cry of African-American preachers until we hear all those newly conceived babies cry for themselves. And may our churches be places where women and men can come and have the blood of the unborn washed from their guilty consciences by the blood of Jesus.
