CURE Releases annual report - "The Impact of Abortion on the Black Community"
For immediate release: January 18, 2024
Black Community continues to be decimated by horrific abortion industry tactics
Washington, D.C. – As pro-life Americans bear witness to the sacredness of human life at the annual “March for Life” in our nation’s capital today, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) is releasing its annual report on “The Impact of Abortion on the Black Community.”
As the report states, Dobbs did not end the debate on abortion. Elected officials now have more responsibility than ever to address the widescale killing of the unborn. Pro-Life advocates have to wage a 50-state strategy to affirm and protect life.
Disproportionately, the leading consumer of abortion services is the black female. According to the United States Census Bureau and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Abortion Surveillance Report, black women made up 14 percent of the childbearing population in 2020 yet obtained 39.2 percent of reported abortions. Black women have the highest abortion ratio in the country, with 442 abortions per 1,000 live births.
As Star Parker stated in a recent appearance on Straight Arrow News, “Abortion is still a topic of discussions, debates and elections. Abortion is a crime against humanity. It’s a great illusion. The nightmares and pain and regrets that result from this illusion are proof that there is no escape valve in life from personal responsibility. Legal abortion provides this deadly illusion and women have bought the lie.
But a clever brain cannot delude a knowing heart.”
