National Black Pro-Life Coalition ∴ National Day of Mourning
On Monday, February 28th, 2011, the last day of Black history month, hundreds gathered across fourteen states to mourn the loss of Black lives to the abortion industry during our first National Day of Mourning. Led by Black leaders in cities across the country, we paused to reflect upon the scourge of abortion and the lives it destroys. Women are still dying, not as a result of a coat hanger, but at the hands of butchers called abortionists. Women are being reproductively maimed in the name of choice, as their bowels are perforated and intestines pulled out. Hysterectomies are happening all across the nation, as the real doctors attempt to repair the damage done at the abortionist hands. Yet, we did not hear about the Day of Mourning through the mainstream media, they blacked us out, not willing to risk shining the light on how anti-woman the abortion industry truly is. Such as has been the case since the first state legalized abortion in 1967. Since then we do not hear about the genocidal impact of abortion in the Black community.
We are striving for a world that values every human life, from conception until natural death. We will not be silent while abortion ravages, in epidemic proportions, the Black community under the perverted guise of "reproductive justice."
