Black History Month
February is dedicated to celebrating Black History Month, which was recognized officially in 1976 by President Gerald R. Ford.
As prolife people of all colors and backgrounds, this is a time to mourn the 20 million members of the black community whose lives were ended before they could take their first breath. This is a time to mourn the women in the black community whose “health and wellness” are being exploited by the abortion industry in the pursuit of profit. This is a time to mourn the women suffering from post-abortive syndrome who have been abandoned by the neighborhood abortion facility that was once so welcoming and eager to “serve” their community. This is a time to mourn the women who fell victim to the lie that abortion will fix their problems, keep their relationships together, and secure their equality.
Around the country, the black community is being honored today while their future is being erased by the millions. Black history is being remembered while more than 20 million of them will never get to be a part of it.
In 2021, there were 28,409 abortions among Michigan residents with racial data available, and 15,784 of those abortions happened within the black community. While black women make up only about 14% of the female population in Michigan, they had 55.6% of all abortions reported in the state in 2021.
To honor and celebrate the black community, people must start by fighting against the mass killing of black babies and putting an end to the abortion industry’s exploitation of black mothers and women.
