Pro-life black leaders are denouncing the disproportionate number of black babies who are aborted every year as genocidal population control.

According to the latest report from theCenters for Disease and Prevention (CDC) 35 percent of of unborn babies aborted in the U.S. in 2013 were black, even though blacks make up only 13.3 percent of the total population.

“All abortion is genocide. All abortion is eugenics. It’s designed for population control for various reasons,” Alveda King, the niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., founder of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition, and director of Civil Rights for the Unborn at Priests for Life, told

“The numbers are higher in the African American community, so that’s certainly black genocide,” she said. “But abortion is genocidal in nature and it is a eugenicist plot.”

King cited Planned Parenthood (PP) founder Margaret Sanger’s well-documented  statements on population control. Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider

“The Obama administration and Obamacare has been very, very aggressive in pushing this agenda,” King continued, “but we cannot pin it on one administration.

“From 1973 – when Roe v. Wade made abortion legal in America in all 50 states, in some cases right up to nine months – abortion has been carefully crafted and packaged to appear to be health care. The same thing with abortifacients, which are prescribed to women for free to keep them from being healthy child-bearers,” she added.

“We found that there was a dearth of awareness in our African American communities because many of our elected officials, such as [members of] the Congressional Black Caucus and even pastors, doctors, and lawyers had been misled into buying into the agenda with campaign contributions, scholarships and grants. They accepted what was offered and then found out later that it was a terrible, terrible agenda,” she pointed out.
