Racial Disparity in Preterm Births

In Abortion on June 28, 2010 at 12:00 am

Racial Disparity in Preterm Births

According to a study in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, Volume 13 Number 4, Winter 2008, entitled “Does Induced Abortion Account for Racial Disparity in Preterm Births, and Violate the Nuremberg Code?” Black American women have three (3) times the risk of suffering an early preterm birth (EPB, birth under 32 weeks) and four (4) times the risk of an extremely preterm birth (XPB, birth under 28 weeks). This report, authored by Brent Rooney, M.Sc., Byron C. Calhoun, M.D., M.B.A. and Lisa E. Roche, J.D., reports a “statistically significant” increase in the risk of EBP or XPB in women who have a history of induced abortion (IA) when compared to women with no history of induced abortion (IA).

XPB Babies Have A 129 Times Higher Risk

When one considers the fact that XPB babies have a 129 times higher risk of being born with the horribly debilitating effects of cerebral palsy (CP) and according to Rooney, Calhoun and Roche, “about 43% of pregnancies in Black American women end in induced abortion (IA)” alone and when you understand that these numbers describe a rate of death in the Black community that only reflects the impact of induced abortion (IA), you are at a point where you are beginning to understand that my people are dying.

There Are No Safe Abortions

According to Rooney, Calhoun and Roche, “about 43% of pregnancies in Black American women end in IA.” In the United States of America the most common IA method is Vacuum Aspiration Abortion (VAA). This study reveals the fact that VAA has never been proven safe in animal studies. This information is significant because the use of procedures that have not been proven safe in animal studies is a violation of the “Nuremberg Code Of Ethics On Human Research And Experimentation.” All abortions shed innocent blood. All abortions terminate the life of a child. There are no safe abortions.

Brothers, we really need to talk.

Teenage Pregnancy

Teenage Pregnancy

According to According to the National Vital Statistics Reports: Volume 58, No. 4, released October 14th, 2009, entitled “Estimated Pregnancy Rates for the United States, 1990–2005: An Update” the pregnancy rate for teenagers fell 40 percent during the 1990–2005 period, to 70.6 pregnancies per 1,000 women aged 15–19 years. This rate was the lowest reported since 1976. The overall decline for teenagers is reflected in significant declines in rates for live births and induced abortions, with much steeper declines for abortions (down 53 percent) compared with live births (down 32 percent).

Teenage Pregnancy Is Still Being Evaluated

Preliminary data on births extending to 2007 show that the long-term decline in the teenage birth rate was halted with increases from 2005 to 2006 and from 2006 to 2007. When more recent abortion estimates become available, it will be possible to assess whether and to what extent teenage pregnancy rates have increased as the birth rate did. Pregnancy rates by age of woman are highest in 1990 and 2005 for women in their twenties, intermediate at ages 18–19 and 30–34 years, and lowest at ages under 18 and 35 years and older.

Our Teenagers Need Our Help

According to the National Abortion Federation, it is a fact that each year, one million American teenagers become pregnant, and 78% of these pregnancies are unintended. It is also a fact that of the teenage women who become pregnant, about 35% choose to have an abortion rather than bear a child. The children are our future. We must do a better job meeting the needs of women and communicating the truth that, in the words of Day Gardner (a Black woman who is President of the National Black Pro-Life Union): “The consequences or circumstances a young woman may face with an unplanned pregnancy need not include the cruel and vicious killing of her child.”

Brothers, we really need to talk.

Black Life Deficit

Black Life Deficit

According to the National Vital Statistics Reports: Volume 58, No. 8, released December 23rd, 2009, there were 292,080 Black deaths from all causes other than induced abortion (i.e., excluding induced abortion). Let’s look at the math:

587,000 Live Black Births
– 744,808 Black Deaths (i.e., 452,000 induced abortions + 292,808 all other causes)
157,808 (Black Life Deficit)

Black America’s Total Fertility Rate

A total fertility rate of 2.1 represents “replacement level” fertility for the total population under current mortality conditions (assuming no net immigration). According to the United State Census Bureau, Statistical Abstract of the United States: 2006 (Vital Statistics page 67, Table. 77), Black America is below the replacement level at 1.9. According to research, in order for a culture to maintain itself for more than 25 years, there must be a fertility rate of 2.1, with anything less, the culture will decline. Historically, no culture has ever reversed a 1.9 fertility rate.

Endangered Species

In 1970 the fertility rate for Black America was 3.0. Since abortion became legal, the fertility rate for Black America has dropped to 1.9. Understanding replacement level is not difficult. Today in Black America there is more death than life. In my opinion, if we do not band together and stop abortion, Black America may face the very real possibility of being an endangered species by the year of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ 2100.

Brothers, we really need to talk.

Leading Cause Of Death

Leading Cause Of Death

According to Dr. La Verne Tolbert, former board member of Planned Parenthood in New York City from 1975 to 1980, over 20 million black babies have been aborted. If the brutal death of our children from legalized tax-payer funded abortion does not move us to work towards the end of abortion, perhaps the report from the National Vital Statistics Reports: Volume 58, No. 8, released December 23rd, 2009 entitled “Deaths: Leading Causes for 2005” will.

Black Births Versus Black Deaths

According to the National Vital Statistics Reports: Volume 58, No. 8, released December 23rd, 2009, there were 587,000 live births and 452,000 abortions in Black America. Please notice how dangerously close the number of Black babies born in 2005 in the United States of America is in comparison to the number of Black babies who lost their lives by induced abortion. When you do the math you’ll also notice that the difference between the two numbers is only 135,000!

Black Deaths From All Other Causes

The total number of Black deaths from all others causes in the United States of America in 2005 was 292,808. I’ll address this number next week. With over 20 million black babies already dead from abortion and almost as many being aborted as there are being born, I have to wonder what keeps us from repenting for our silence and being publicly outraged in and out of our pulpits. Knowing all good things come from above, I can only imagine what blessings from heaven that we as a people have lost and cry.

Brothers, we really need to talk.
