Black pastors wising up to loss of their community

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte has released research showing that abortion accounts for 61 percent of the deaths of blacks in this country, far surpassing heart disease and cancer.

Pastor Clenard Childress of the Life Education and Resource Network tells OneNewsNow that more than 20 million blacks have been killed since 1973.

"And those statistics are not ours," says the pastor. "That's Alan Guttmacher, which is still the research arm for Planned Parenthood. They are doing the statistics nationally and 52 percent of all African-American pregnancies end in abortion."

There are multiple reasons for the astounding figures but one stands out to the pastor.

"Planned Parenthood is in our schools," he complains. "There are many of the health curriculums coming from Planned Parenthood. They want to make abortion something that is a viable alternative to an untimed pregnancy. They're also encouraging our young people to engage sexually."

Childress says the pro-life message needs to be voiced within the schools, where pro-lifers need to attend school board meetings and PTA meetings to insist that students learn the dangers of the Planned Parenthood message.

The positive news, he says, is that African-American pastors are increasingly speaking about the genocide to their own congregations.
