CURE Praises SCOTUS Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade

Washington, D.C. – Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Star Parker, Founder and President of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), released the following statement praising the Court’s decision:

“President Biden said ‘this is a dark day.’ What an irony that they use the word ‘dark,’ Parker said. “They have been targeting dark babies for generations. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a leading activist in controlling the birth rate amongst blacks, who she deemed as ‘undesirable.’ Currently, black women have the highest abortion ratio in the nation.”

“This is why CURE released a report on ‘The Impact of Abortion on the Black Community’ earlier this year. According to the U.S. Census Bureau and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Abortion Surveillance Report, black women made up 15 percent of the childbearing population in 2018, yet obtained 33.6 percent of reported abortions. With 335 abortions per 1,000 live births, percentages at these levels illustrate that about 20 million black babies have been aborted since Roe v. Wade was passed in 1973.”

Parker continued, “The elite see children as a burden. It is the poor who see children as hope. Hope for a better future than they had themselves. The elite have tried to eliminate poor people, telling them that they don’t need to have kids.”

“A dark day?’ Not for us. Not for millions of lives yet to be born. Today’s a new day. We’ve turned the lights on. Life is alive.”

Parker concludes, “As we praise the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic overturning of Roe v. Wade, it is the future, and all of the lives that now will be lived, that we celebrate today.” 

CURE is a policy and research center dedicated to fighting poverty and restoring dignity through messages of faith, freedom and personal responsibility.
