Several black pro-life groups have organized the National Day of Mourning for late August because of the estimated 20 million African-American babies aborted since 1973. Catherine Davis of The Restoration Project explains the problem originated in 1939 when Planned Parenthood launched The Negro Project.

"That plan – which they have never denounced and which they still implement to this day – targets the black community for birth control and, once abortion was legalized, abortion," she tells OneNewsNow. That was in 1973.

Davis points out that 20 million is a huge number. "That is more black people than were present in the population back in the 1960s when the civil rights movement was heating up and getting to its height," she notes.

Planned Parenthood has, as policy, located most of its abortion clinics in minority neigherhoods.

A procession by bus will begin August 30 in Richmond, Virginia; travel to Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina; and end in Birmingham, Alabama, arriving on August 31. They plan to highlight that Planned Parenthood is building large abortion clinics, following the usual pattern, by establishing them in black neighborhoods.

Davis is calling on the Church to organize 24-hour prayer sessions in the weeks leading up to the procession.
