Real Justice for Black America
Yesterday was the 36th anniversary of Roe-v-Wade. March for Lifers gathered in Washington to speak loudly against the injustice of abortion for the smallest citizens who have no voice. Where was the news coverage? Did you see any?
While blacks make up 13% of the population, 33% of the abortions in America are African-America; a very skewed proportion.
Just a few days after grand celebrations in Washington DC, what is real justice for blacks in America? Grand speeches and promises, or the end to abortions that take a high percentage of African-American life? There also is a question of justice for the poor, minorities, and single-moms who have a high percentage of abortions.
