Georgia Right to Life and the Radiance Foundation today announced at a
press conference the launch of the Endangered Species Project, an
initiative to increase awareness of the impact of abortion on Georgia's
minority communities and women.
The campaign began with the placement of billboards in Dekalb and
Fulton counties where the majority of abortions occur. According to
Catherine Davis, Director of Minority Outreach, over 67% of the
abortions in Georgia occur in those two counties. Ms Davis maintains
that this is by design.
"Planned Parenthood's Negro Project is succeeding", Davis said. "They
targeted blacks in order to control their birthrate, limiting the
growth of populations they 'don't want too many of’ as Justice Ruth
Bader Ginsburg revealed was the goal behind Roe v. Wade (Women on the
Court, New York Times Magazine, July 2009)."
Georgia leads the country in the number of reported abortions performed
on black women, 18,901 in 2008 alone. Davis maintains the impact of
abortion is so great that black children are an endangered species.
In addition to the billboards a website was also launched this week -- www.TooManyAborted.com
--where the motives for abortion in America are discussed. Ryan
Bomberger, co-founder of The Radiance Foundation stated,
"TooManyAborted.com is the response to the rhetoric of 'reducing
abortions'. Regardless of race, religious and civic community leaders
and the general public need to understand the destructive nature of the
abortion industry and get outraged by the truth."
Dr. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr. commented, "My Uncle
Martin once stated, 'The Negro cannot win if he is willing to sell the
future of his children for his personal and immediate comfort and
safety.' Those words are still true today. After all, how can the dream
survive if we let them take our children?"
In closing, Dr. Alveda King noted, "Abortion is the civil rights issue
of the 21st century."
