Abortion and Race

Abort73.com is an excellent pro-life source which I recommend for students doing projects, pro-life advocates seeking profitable information in their outreach, and even pro-choice people whose minds are open enough to consider facts and perspectives they may have overlooked in developing their opinions.

A great starting point for all three would be the group's "Abortion and Race" page which provides information on the disproportionate abortion rates among black Americans, a brief overview of the eugenics movement, and a striking letter from Jesse Jackson who asked in 1977, "What happens to the mind of a person, and the moral fabric of a nation, that accepts the aborting of the life of a baby without a pang of conscience? What kind of a person, and what kind of a society will we have 20 years hence if life can be taken so casually? It is that question, the question of our attitude, our value system, and our mind-set with regard to the nature and worth of life itself that is the central question confronting mankind. Failure to answer that question affirmatively may leave us with a hell right here on earth."

That particular page can be found right here.
