LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Abortion’s heavy population toll
A memorial service will be held June 19 as part of the “Juneteenth” holiday observance in Washington. Hopefully it will include a showing of the movie “MAAFA 21,” which is about the effects of abortion on the black community.
The U.S. Census Bureau reports that approximately 18 million abortions have been performed on black women since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. If this number were added to the 42 million in the 2010 census, the black population would be 60 million. In 2007, 448,000 abortions were performed on black women, an average of 1,228 per day.
At least 30 percent of the black American population is missing because of abortion.
