Dedicated to Life

From Live Action:
Pro-life African-American leaders around the country have had enough of the war against preborn black children, and they are working hard to ensure that abortion becomes a thing of the past, not just for African-American women and children, but all women and children. While abortion numbers have been declining in the United States over the last two decades, African-American women have an abortion rate of 25.1 abortions per 1,000 women. Compare that to the rate for White women: 6.8 abortions per 1,000 women. The majority of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities — 79 percent — are within walking distance of minority neighborhoods and have been caught accepting donations to specifically abort Black babies. (Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist.) Most shocking, in New York City, more Black preborn children are killed through abortion than are born. (Read more.)

From The Public Discourse:
Any infant who is born alive, at any stage of development, is a person entitled to the protections of the law and appropriate care as a new patient. There is no scientific or legal reason to distinguish between human beings born after an attempted abortion and human beings born after attempted live birth. A distressed newborn should get immediate emergency care and a professional evaluation to determine appropriate steps to promote his/her health and well-being. Obviously, a distressed newly born baby presents for emergency medical care at the moment of her or his birth, regardless of whether that birth results from an abortion attempt or attempted live delivery. EMTALA mandates hospitals to examine and treat any person who presents for emergency medical care. (Read more.)
