Author compares African American death toll from abortion to other causes of death

Elisha J Israel writes about the toll abortion takes in the African American community:

“In 2008, according to the Guttmacher Institute, there were 1.21 million abortions in the United States and 30% of these were performed on African-American women. In this year African-American women averaged 994 abortions per day. To put this in perspective, in the years between 1882 in 1968, known as the “Lynching Century”, the Tuskegee Institute recorded 3466 lynchings of African-Americans. Today, through abortion that number 3446 is surpassed in about 4 days… In any given year since 1973, the number of abortions surpassed the amount of deaths of the 10 leading causes of death for African Americans. Since 1973, more black lives have died from abortion than for deaths resulting from heart disease, violent crime, HIV/AIDS, cancer, accidents, and diabetes combined.”
