"Black & Beautiful" Anti-Abortion Campaign Is Unleashed in California

Group thinks abortion is genocide of our generation
The assault on the psyches of African-American women and our children continues as the Radiance Foundation and the Issues4Life Foundation launch their “Black & Beautiful” campaign in Oakland, Calif.
Sixty billboards throughout the Bay Area now carry a message similar to those that entered the Georgia landscape in 2010 claiming that too many aborted children were “Black and Unwanted.” Showing a beautiful black child against a stark monochromatic background, these organizations are convinced that the controversial image will illuminate that abortion in the African-American community is the genocidal crisis of this generation:
“The impact of abortion in the black Community is the Darfur of America,” says Walter B. Hoye II, president of Issues4Life.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI) are the only two sources from which abortion information is gathered. While the information gives us a relatively clear snapshot of abortion statistics, it should by no stretch of the imagination be considered definitive.
The CDC reports information collected primarily from state health departments. Only 45 states, with the District of Columbia, collect abortion data, and the information on as many as 40 to 50 percent of the abortions that occur in these states is conspicuously absent. While AGI is more comprehensive, they also cannot account for abortion procedures performed by private physicians.
Ironically, California – the location of this latest race-tinged attack – is one of the states that do not report abortion data to the CDC.
