In this past year I have taken a particular interest in the value of life and the importance of protecting it. Particularly unborn babies. I have experienced firsthand of the reality and value of life in the womb and the sad truth about how many people may not see it that way. In the past month I have become aware of the reality and rampancy of abortion in the United States, especially as it relates to the African American population.

My attention has been brought to this topic by Dr. Grant's Blog "The Quick and the Dead", which is, I believe, a response to his 1992 book, "The Quick and the Dead: Ru 486 and the New Chemical Warfare Against Your Family". I encourage you to visit this blog and explore the truth about abortion, Planned Parenthood, and it's particular aim at the African American population in minority neighborhoods.

Following are some statistics from the website Klan Parenthood:

In America today, almost as many African-American children are aborted as are born.

Every three days, more African-Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire history.

A black baby is three times more likely to be murdered in the womb than a white baby.

Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25 percent.

Twice as many African-Americans have died from abortion than have died from AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined.

Planned Parenthood operates the nation's largest chain of abortion clinics and almost 80 percent of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods.

About 13 percent of American women are black, but they submit to over 35 percent of the abortions.

I just read Dr. Grant's new post before I came to yours and was thinking "I need to post something on this. Every time I think of the babies killed every minute, my heart breaks and I feel sick. Right now I will pray, and maybe an opportunity to do something more tangible will open up for me soon.
