Political correctness is the only thing holding society back from declaring abortion THE hate crime of our era, according to the formidable archbishop of Durban, South Africa.
“Is there any good reason, other than political correctness, why abortion is not defined as & declared immoral & illegal, as THE hate crime of our era?” tweeted Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier early Monday morning.
The cardinal was responding to Live Action, a pro-life group, which was tweeting about abortion and racism in reference to Black History Month.
“There is no group that kills more black Americans than Planned Parenthood,” Live Action noted. “Abortion is the most lethal form of racism.”
Live Action was started in 2003, by pro-life activist Lila Rose, who was just 15 years old at the time. Lila began undercover investigations in 2006, while studying at UCLA at the age of 18.
Abortion accounts for a disturbing 61 percent of deaths of African Americans, according to researchers from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
A 2018 report analyzed research using data from the latest year for which all the pertinent information is available (2009) and found that induced abortion was responsible for 1.152 million deaths, making it the number one cause of death in the U.S. at nearly twice the number of deaths from heart disease (599,413) and cancer (567,628).
While abortion accounted for nearly a third of all U.S. deaths in 2009 (32.1 percent), more troubling still, it made up 61.1 percent of African American deaths, according to the studypublished in the Open Journal of Preventive Medicine (June 2016).
