The Impact of Black Abortionists

In Abortion, Special Edition on January 31, 2011 at 2:13 am

The Impact of Black Abortionists

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” — Martin Luther King Jr., (I Have a Dream: Writings and Speeches That Changed the World, Special 75th Anniversary Edition.)

Andrew Rutland

According to Operation Rescue, led by my friend Troy Newman, Andrew Rutland, a Black Abortionist, is accused of homicide in a patient death in California. Recently the Medical Board of California has made an agreement with Andrew Rutland that includes surrendering his medical license on February, 11th, 2011. Rutland who was first licensed in California in 1973 had his license revoked in 2002 after two babies died due to his negligence.1 Again according to Operation Rescue, at that time Rutland was also “charged with, frightening women into agreeing to unnecessary hysterectomies, botching surgeries, lying to patients, falsifying medical records, over-prescribing painkillers and having sex with a patient in his office.”2

Nicola Riley

According to the Maryland Board of Physicians, formal charges have been filed against Nicola Riley, a Black Abortionist, who was hired by illegal late-term abortionist Steven C. Brigham to perform abortions at the Maryland offices of American Women’s Services. Dr. Brigham whose New York medical license was revoked for gross negligence and negligence on more than one occasion owns and operates American Women’s Services which provides abortion services at facilities in several states including Maryland. According to the record, on August 13th, 2010, Riley botched an abortion by perforating the uterus and pulling out part of a woman’s intestine at Brigham’s secret illegal abortion clinic. A hearing is scheduled for April 6, 2011.3

Kermit Gosnell

According to the Report Of The Grand Jury by R. Seth Williams District Attorney, the case against Dr. Kermit Gosnell, a Black Abortionist in Philadelphia, “is about a doctor who killed babies and endangered women. What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy — and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors. The medical practice by which he carried out this business was a filthy fraud in which he overdosed his patients with dangerous drugs, spread venereal disease among them with infected instruments, perforated their wombs and bowels — and, on at least two occasions, caused their deaths. Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on here. But no one put a stop to it.”4

The Impact Of Black Induced Abortions

“The Negro cannot win … if he is willing to sell the future of his children for his personal and immediate comfort and safety.” — Martin Luther King, Jr. (“The Living King”, Ebony, Vol. 41, No. 3, January 1986, Page 63.)


According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI), the former research arm of Planned Parenthood, 30% Of All Abortions Are Performed On Black Women.5 According to the National Vital Statistics Reports of 2009, in 2005 there were 587,000 Live Black Births, 452,000 Induced Black Abortions and 292,808 Black Deaths from all causes, excluding induced abortion.6 If we do the math we have 587,000 Live Black Births against 744,808 Black Deaths (i.e., 452,000 Induced Black Abortions + 292,808 Black Deaths from all other causes) which equates to a Black Life Deficit of a Negative 157,808.7 Abortion, which has taken the lives of more Black Americans than heart disease, cancer, strokes, accidents, diabetes, homicide, and chronic lower respiratory diseases combined, is the number one (1) cause of death in Black America.8 In the last thirty-eight (38) years Black Americans have suffered the lost of over twenty (20) million lives to abortion alone.9 Still further, these numbers do not include those aborted by abortifacients such as ellaOne10 or by “private physicians’ procedures.”

The Lack Of Impact By Black Leaders

“The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.” — Martin Luther King, Jr., (“Strength to Love,” Published in 1963.)


If a White Police Officer had been charged by authorities with shooting a Black Man, there would be a moral outrage from Black Leaders so loud and so long that masses of Black Americans would spill into the streets and end up at the doors of City Hall demanding justice, shouting “Black Life Matters!” Such a response would be understandable, expected and entirely justified. However, in light of the Impact Of Abortion in Black America, the cases of Andrew Rutland, Nicola Riley and Kermit Gosnell, Black Abortionists who are charged with having sex with patients, butchering women and killing babies in the womb of their own mothers has drawn a deafening silence from Black Leadership.

In 1st Timothy the Apostle Paul is writing to his spiritual son Timothy who is pastoring the Church in Ephesus. Paul tells Timothy that there will come a day when men will speak lies disguised as truth because their consciences have been seared as if branded by a red-hot iron (1st Timothy 4:2). As I review the case of Black Abortionist Kermit Gosnell, where the record reports: “Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on here. But no one put a stop to it,” and mourn the women and children slaughtered in his filthy Philadelphia abortion clinic, I am not seeing or hearing moral outrage over the death of our women and children from the barbaric practices of abortion procedures in our neighborhoods or over the genocidal rate of abortion in Black America. Perhaps the words of Paul are prophetic. Could it be, that a red-hot iron has been applied to the consciences of some of us today?

I wholeheartedly concur with my friend and trusted counselor, Dr. Levon R. Yuille, Director of the National Black Pro-Life Congress in Ypsilanti, Michigan, who puts it this way:

“I think the greatest failure in reference to the abortion issue has been black leadership. I’m terribly, terribly, terribly concerned that the Black Church, our Black Congressional representatives and our social organizations, such as the NAACP, have been deathly silent on this issue and if silence is consent then we have this horrific reality that Black Leadership is helping to perpetrate the genocide of their own people.”11

Brothers, we really need to talk.

There Is No New Moral Code!

In Abortion on January 24, 2011 at 12:01 am

Morality Based On Convenience

Morality based on convenience is defined as a “positive good” if it’s comfortable to do what is right, if others will see your actions as being good, if such actions will earn merit or recognition for you, and if one can somehow profit from it financially. However, the moment it becomes convenient or worthwhile to lie, steal, cheat, rape, break marriage vows, have sex with someone else’s spouse, get married or even go to church, morality based on convenience allows our actions to be approved and/or justified.

Morality Based On Convenience Allows Us To:

  • Leave a marriage or any relationship, when it is uncomfortable (physically, socially, financially, etc.).
  • Have sex why, when, where and with whom our heart directs us.
  • Rob Peter to pay Paul, to take from the rich and give to the poor or simply give to ourselves.
  • Decide who lives or who dies, who is a person and who is not a person based on social justice constructs (i.e., our circumstances).

A New Moral Code In America

According to George Barna “We are witnessing the development and acceptance of a new moral code in America.” When Mosaics (those aged 18 to 24) are compared to Baby Boomers, Mosaics are nine times more likely to have sex outside of marriage, six times more likely to lie, almost three times more likely to get drunk and twice as likely to use pornography.[1]

When it comes to abortion, according to the Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI), the abortion rate for Black women is almost five times that for white women in the United States of America [2] and that black women’s higher abortion rates are directly related to their higher rates of unintended pregnancy.[3]

There Is No “New Moral Code”

“Without morals, a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they, therefore, who are decrying the Christian religion are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.” Charles Carroll – 1800

We no longer have to wonder whether morality based on convenience is a “positive good” or a “positive evil“, whether or not it frees us or enslaves us, whether or not it brings us life or death. Morality based on convenience clearly speaks for itself. As Pastors, called by our Lord Jesus Christ as under shepherds to His sheep, we are charged by God to speak truth into the hearts of people. There is no “new moral code”. Either our actions are moral or they are not. Morality based on convenience is not moral, nor does it in anyway reflect God’s Truth. Jesus says: “What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops (Matthew 10:27).” If the Barna Group and the Guttmacher Institute are even half right, it’s time for the world to hear us shout from our housetops, there is NO NEW MORAL CODE! Jesus Christ is the way the truth and the life (John 14:6).

Brothers, we really need to talk.

The Conscience of The State

In Special Edition on January 17, 2011 at 12:01 am

SPECIAL: MLK Edition

The Conscience of The State

One day in Oakland, California, in the capacity of a sidewalk counselor, I met a Black man, taking his girlfriend to get an abortion. When we talked, he said to me, he knew it was “his baby” and that his “CONSCIENCE” was bothering him. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.1 wrote:

“The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the CONSCIENCE of the state. It must be the GUIDE and the CRITIC of the state, and never its TOOL. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.”2

As a Black American member of the clergy, a man of the cloth, I love the Church. In 1967, while sitting in Church contemplating my Pastor’s invitation to accept Jesus Christ as Lord, I heard the voice of God in the stillness of my heart and stood up.

I gave the Pastor my hand, but I gave my LIFE to Christ as my Lord and Saviour. On Sunday, October 22nd, 1967, at the tender age of eleven (11) I was baptized into the body of Christ at the Hartford Avenue Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan.3

Oh How I Love The Church

In the sixties (i.e., 1960’s) we marched in the streets, marriage was still defined as one man and one woman for LIFE and abortion was defined as murder because it deliberately caused the DEATH of a person, an innocent human being, both inside and outside of the Church.

Oh How I Love The Church.

The Church was bold! The Church was passionate for righteousness sake! The Church was hardly an “irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.”

According to the latest year (2008) for which statistics are available, 214,190 abortions were committed in California. Of the 214,190 abortions, 80,069 of them were directly paid for by taxpayers through Medi-Cal to the 522 abortion providers in the state of California. Abortions in California represent 17.7% of all abortions in the United States.

I live in California today and I still love the Church. However, California is embroiled in the midst of a moral crisis and I’m not seeing the Church act as the “CONSCIENCE” or the “GUIDE” or the “CRITIC” of the state.

It not only appears to me that the Church is no longer boldly passionate for righteousness sake, but it even appears to me that, at times, the Church is the “TOOL” of the state.

Oh How I Love The Church.

Nevertheless, I believe King was prophetic when he said:

“If the Church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.”

Oh How I Love The Church.

Looking Forward To The Day

And because I love her, I’m looking forward to the day when the state of California says, marriage is between one man and one woman for LIFE, that abortion is murder because it takes the LIFE of a person, an innocent human being and says such because … her “CONSCIENCE” has been bothering her.

In my opinion, then and only then, will “justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.”

Brothers, we really need to talk.

Respecting Each Other

In Abortion on January 10, 2011 at 3:57 am

Respect For Biblical Marriage

“Male and female created He them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.”&nbsp!;—&nbsp!;(Genesis 5:2, KJV)


Christians know from the Bible that marriage is part of God’s divine order for mankind. “And the LORD God said, it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” (Genesis 2:18) “And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.” (Genesis 2:22-25)

Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, marriage between one man and one women is foundational in God’s plan for us. “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife. And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” (Mark 10: 6,7,9) My dear friend, Pastor Jim Garlow of the Skyline Church in Rancho San Diego, says: “This definition of Marriage has been affirmed by every culture&nbsp!;—&nbsp!;pre-Christian, anti-Christian, and Christian cultures, for the last 5,000 years.” The Bible is very clear. Marriage between one man and one woman matters and we must respect it.

Respect For The Sanctity Of Human Life

“I pray that this Bible study will inspire you! May it motivate and encourage you to love God, yourself, your neighbor, and those yet to be born.  Come with me and discover your part in protecting God’s greatest gift, the gift of LIFE! Revelation 22:17″&nbsp!;—&nbsp!;(Joel Patchen)


Joel Patchen, Founder and President of Anna’s Choice,1 is my friend and author of the “Who Am I” Bible study that examines twenty-five (25) biblical reasons why Christians should respect, honor, protect, and defend human life. Joel answers the next two (2) questions for us: What does the Word of God say about abortion? “Abortion is against God’s will, did not enter His mind, must be stopped, is an abomination, will be judged, people who have committed it can be forgiven and healed.” (Psalm 139:13,14; Luke 1:44; Jeremiah 1:5; Numbers 25:33; Isaiah 45:5-12; Job 31:15; Genesis 1:26, 4:1; James 5:5,6; Galatians 1:15; Exodus 20:13; Jeremiah 32:35; Psalm 106:36-38; Proverbs 24:10-12; Psalm 32:1-5; Psalm 145:8-10; Zephaniah 3:17.) What does the Bible say about children in the womb and out of the womb? “Children are people from the moment of conception (i.e., fertilization), a blessing and highly valued by God. The Bible rears them as equals in word, thought and action.” (Psalm 139; Luke 1; Isaiah 44; Psalm 142; Hebrews 2:14-17; Psalm 127; Romans 8:16,17; Romans 9:11; 1st John 3:1) The Bible is very clear. Human Life is sacred and we must respect it.

Respecting Each Other

“Marriage is about attaching mothers and fathers to children, and mothers and fathers to one another.”&nbsp!;—&nbsp!;(Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse)


It’s time for the two (2) movements to come together. We need each other. As long as there is no respect for pre-born children, as long as it is legal to violently dismember our children in the wombs of their mothers, there will be no respect for marriage between one man and one woman. For too long we have fought for our own agendas and quietly behind the scenes supported one another. It’s time to boldly and publicly support one another.

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, “The truth is that behind virtually every abortion is an unintended pregnancy. This applies to all women&nbsp!;—&nbsp!;[B]lack, [W]hite, Hispanic, Asian and Native American alike.”2 In my neighborhood this reality is extremely painful. Again, according to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, “Black women’s unintended pregnancy rates are the highest of all.”3

According to theRoot: “Nearly half (50%) of Black Americans have never married. [This is] the highest percentage for all racial groups. Only 30 percent (30%) of Blacks are now married. Married couples make up nearly three-quarters (75%) of all U.S. families. Among black families that number falls to 44 percent (44%). Nearly 10 million Black families lived in the United States in 2007. Twenty-one percent (21%) of these families were married couples with children. This is the lowest for all racial groups. The U.S. average [for married couples with children] is 32.4 percent (32.4%). But nearly one-third of these families were single mothers with children under 18. The U.S. average [for single mothers with children under 18] is 12.1 percent (12.1%). Slightly less than 20 percent (20%) of Black families were grandparents raising their grandchildren. The U.S. average [for grandparents raising their grandchildren] is 10 percent (10%). [It’s] no surprise then that slightly more than half (50%) of [all] Black kids live with only one parent.” Black America is facing a crisis!4

As long as there is no respect for pre-born children, there will be no respect for motherhood, there will be no respect for fatherhood, and there will be no respect for marriage between one man and one woman. When we respect Human Life, we will respect Marriage. Help me end abortion. Let’s work together to end abortion now.

Brothers, we really need to talk.

How Long Can We Last?

59.3% Of All Abortions In The USA

According to the CDC Table 100, reporting on “ABORTIONS BY SELECTED CHARACTERISTICS: 1990 TO 2005”, 37.5% of BLACK WOMEN and 21.8% of LATINO WOMEN had abortions in 2005. In other words, 59.3% Of All Abortions In The United States Of America in The Year Of Our Lord 2005, came from just two (2) minority neighborhoods. Here is the link (http://bit.ly/cH4d8q).

1,000 Black Women | 493 Black Abortions

According to the CDC Table 100, reporting on “ABORTIONS BY SELECTED CHARACTERISTICS: 1990 TO 2005” (http://bit.ly/cH4d8q), if you had 1,000 BLACK WOMEN (15 to 44 years of age), IN YOUR PEWS, 493 of them HAD ABORTIONS in 2005. Please note that for 2005 the CDC data legally DID NOT include data from CALIFORNIA, NEW HAMPSHIRE, LOUISIANA, the DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA (DC), and NEW YORK CITY (NYC).

A 715,000 Abortion Coincidence

According to the CDC (http://bit.ly/cH4d8q), of the 1.206 MILLION ABORTIONS in 2005, BLACK AMERICA accounted for 452,000 ABORTIONS and LATINO AMERICA accounted for 263,000 ABORTIONS. Together the two largest minority communities accounted for 715,000 ABORTIONS out of the 1.206 MILLION ABORTIONS in the USA. I wonder, how could this possibly be an occurrence of mere chance? Or could it possibly be true that the U.S. taxpayer funded abortion industry targets minorities? Hmmmm … I’m now wondering, at this rate, how long can we last? Please help me end abortion now.

Brothers, we really need to talk.
