Dear Congresswoman Kilpatrick:
Abortion is morally wrong and millions of Americans agree. It is unacceptable that our government takes U.S. taxpayer money and gives it to Planned Parenthood to kill children inside the womb of their mothers.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion chain in America and has killed millions innocent children at its facilities.
Planned Parenthood's top goal for the next 25 years is to push its agenda of promiscuous sex everywhere in our society.
Planned Parenthood puts minors on birth control without parents' knowledge or involvement.
Planned Parenthood has demonstrated a willingness to cover up for rapists and child predators.
Planned Parenthood pushes pornography onto children with shocking and offensive websites, books, and literature.
Planned Parenthood is openly hostile to Christianity, and regularly mocks people of faith.
Planned Parenthood hurts women with misleading and dishonest medical information.
And Planned Parenthood does all of this with over $336 million dollars a year of U.S. taxpayer money.
As you may be aware, the impact of abortion in the African-American community is horrific. It is the Darfur of America. According to the "Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI)" fact sheet entitled "Facts on Induced Abortion in the United States" dated
January 2008, 1.21 million abortions were performed in 2005, down from 1.31 million in 2000. In the same report Black women were 4.8 times as likely as non-Hispanic white women to have an abortion, and Hispanic women were 2.7 times as likely. While the total number of abortions performed has decreased, the total number of abortions in the African-American community has increased.
Again, according to AGI, 1.21 million abortions were performed in 2005 and Black women were 4.8 times as likely as non-Hispanic white women to have an abortion, and Hispanic women are 2.7 times as likely. These numbers equate to 683,294 Black babies aborted in 2005. In other words, 56% of all legal abortions were performed on Black women in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ 2005.
Here is the formula (4.8x + 2.7x + x = 1.21) and the statistical breakdown of the above numbers: 56,941 Black babies were aborted every month, 13,140 Black babies were aborted every week, 1,871 Black babies were aborted every day, 78 Black babies were aborted every hour, and 1.3 Black babies were aborted every minute.
Ultimately, from 2000 to 2005, the total number of abortions performed on Black women increased by 153,040 aborted Black babies. Which amounts to the death of an additional 419 Black babies per day. These numbers represent an average annual
increase of 30,608 aborted Black babies per day.
To bring perspective to the impact of abortion in the African-American community, according to the population data provided by the "U.S. Census Bureau" Fact Sheet for 2006, 683,294 aborted Black babies is the equivalent of killing over five (5) times
the entire African-American population of Oakland, California or killing more than the entire African-American population of Oakland, California, Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, Georgia combined.
Finally, in light of the investigative research performed by the students of UCLA which is well documented in the Winter Quarter 2008 issue of "The Advocate" and reveals Planned Parenthood's agenda to underwrite their racist and eugenic goals, we cannot adequately express our outrage!
We respectfully call on you to use every influence at your disposal to see that both the Congress and the Senate work together to defund Planned Parenthood immediately.
