Right to Life of Michigan created a special video project for Black History Month in February that exposes the devastating impact of abortion on the black community.
The 1-minute video uses statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and the Guttmacher Institute to show how abortions killed more African Americans than all other causes combined.
The number is staggering: 19 million abortions since 1973 in the black community, according to the group’s research.
Pro-life leader Walter B. Hoye II of the Issues 4Life Foundation found similar results when he compared abortion data to other leading causes of death in the black community from the U.S. Statistical Abstract for 2013 and the National Vital Statistics Report from 2015.
According to the statistics:
Heart Disease: 72,010
Abortion kills 5.9 times as many Blacks as heart disease.
Malignant Neoplasms: 67,953
Abortion kills 6.3 times as many Blacks as cancer.
Cerebrovascular Disease: 16,269
Abortion kills 26.4 times as many Blacks as strokes.
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 13,413
