Today, we mourn four decades of violence against preborn children. Since January 22, 1973, America has aborted about 54 million preborn children. By contrast, we have lost under 1 million people in all the wars in American history combined, from the Revolution to the Civil War to Afghanistan.
Abortion hits minority communities the hardest. While African-Americans make up 12 percent of the population, 37 percent of all abortions are against African-American babies. The same is true for the Hispanic population who make up about 15 percent of the population but represent 22 percent of all abortions.
“I believe the fulfillment of the dream of justice for the preborn is going to find its roots in the very communities hurt most by this senseless injustice,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. Citing yesterday’s keynote address by Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, at the 45th Martin Luther King, Jr. Annual Commemoration Service, Staver said, “Justice will always speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Silence is not an option. It is time for America to rise up with Dr. King’s dream and live out our Christian faith. It is time for America to rise up and defend the preborn.”
Pray for women facing crisis pregnancies. Pray for the preborn.
