As the overall battle for life is intensifying in our country, especially in the states of New York, Texas, and Wisconsin, now is the time to strategically organize ourselves as pro-lifers in a truly cohesive manner.
We must take the phrase “It’s a matter of life or death” to heart, for this is truly a life and death situation. We must remember that the real battle for life happens at least 3,000 times a day in our nation. Thousands of little preborn persons under the threat of the abortionist’s deadly instruments face their own individual fight—in the battlefield of their mother’s wombs. And we are the ones who are obligated to reach people and hopefully change hearts and minds—thereby saving lives and souls.
Since the beginning of the modern abortion/contraception era and up until today, most of these “battlefields” have existed in America’s black communities. Once the pill and then Roe v. Wade happened, many black babies didn’t stand a chance.
While any aborted child, regardless of skin color, is one child too many who is aborted, there has always been a disproportionate number of minority babies aborted. Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills set up shop in low-income minority neighborhoods where despair is high and morale is often low.
Planned Parenthood and other abortionists prey on this despair and see the public schools as ripe and fertile ground for their future customers and victims—schools where they peddle pornographic sex-ed to our children with the help of our own tax dollars.
Recently, Planned Parenthood launched an online, sex-drenched “telenovela” for Latino youth entitled East Los High, which is nothing but a façade and a shameless advertisement for Planned Parenthood. It unabashedly promotes indiscriminate sex, homosexuality, contraception, and abortion.
In addition, there is the Latinos for Planned Parenthood Facebook page and the Latinos for Planned Parenthood Twitter feed. These Internet social media platforms are nothing short of portals into the hell that is Planned Parenthood.
Be assured that these designers aren’t stupid. They know that youth literally live on their iPads, iPhones, smartphones, and laptops. They know that these social media platforms are an easy way for them to spread their poison.
BY THE NUMBERS
In 2012, the United States Department of Health and Human Services, the CDC, and other government agencies released a National Vital Statistics Report that outlined some of the current abortion trends.
It was found that black women experience an average of 1.6 times more pregnancies than white women, but have five times more abortions over their lifetime.
Latina women experience an average of 1.5 times more pregnancies than white women and have 2.3 times as many abortions over their lifetime. What those statistics mean is that the abortion/contraception industrial complex is remaining true to its racist and eugenics roots.
ProtectingBlackLife.org posted a terrific online map that shows where all of the Planned Parenthood facilities are located across the United States—and they are mainly in minority communities.
ORGANIZING LATINOS FOR LIFE
Thankfully, black and Latino pro-life activists are more effectively teaching their own communities about how Planned Parenthood, pro-abortion politicians, social service providers, and government welfare programs are promoting and taking part in the genocide of their own communities.
BlackGenocide.org, Life Dynamics, the Issues4Life Foundation, and TooManyAborted.com are all great pro-life websites that spotlight the focus on minority communities. I encourage you to visit them.
While it is terrific to see the black pro-life movement becoming stronger and more organized, there is still much pro-life outreach and organizing work to be done in America’s Latino communities.
At American Life League, we understand this and we invite any of you out there who do pro-life outreach work in the Latino communities to join our efforts. Please contact me at [email protected] or call me at 540-907-5825.
Rey Flores is the director of outreach for American Life League.
