ABORTION AWARENESS IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY

 

 

 

During the month of June, the National Black Catholic Apostolate for Life and Black Americans for Life jointly launched a project to help educate members of the African American community on the horrors of abortion. 

 

 

Franciscan Father Jim Goode, OFM, Founder and President of the National Black Catholic Apostolate for Life believes that it is time for the African American Community to realize the great threat that abortion is to the future of all Black Americans.  More than 13 million African American babies have been killed since abortion was legalized in 1973.  Black women have a third of all the abortions even though Blacks are only 12% of the U.S. population- itís a horrible tragedy.  The National Black Catholic Apostolate for Life  joins hands with the National Right to Lifeís Black Americans for Life outreach to spread the good news that we are all Godís children and that we need to work together to protect lifeóall human life.

 

Due to the overwhelming support and endorsement of this abortion awareness effort this year the ABORTION AWARENESS IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY month will extend through August 2002.
