UNION CITY, California, May 6th, 2019 | TruthPR.com | — According to the National Vital Statistics Report, Volume 65, Number 5 dated June 30th, 2016, page twelve, the total number of deaths in Black America from the thirteen leading causes of death in 2014 is 237,359.
Abortion dramatically increases that toll. Let’s do the math …
In 2014, for every one Black American death, only 1.2 Black American babies were born. This is the Black America birth to death ratio. And this is frightening.
Today, according to the National Vital Statistics Report, Volume 68, Number 1 dated January 10th, 2019, page six, the Total Fertility Rate (TFR) for Black Americans is 1.8.
If we consider the replacement fertility rate required to sustain population levels is about 2.1 children per woman, then the 1.2 Black American babies born, for each Black American death, is fifty-seven percent below the required fertility rate to sustain the Black American population.
Again, according to the Population Reference Bureau, which is dedicated to informing people around the world about population, health, and the environment: “Lengthy periods of low fertility have an irreversible consequence. With greatly decreased numbers of young people, there will simply not be enough parents in the future to make a serious difference in a country’s demographic prospects even if there are some modest increases in birth rates.”
In other words, if the Black America birth to death ratio above and the Total Fertility Rate (TFR) for Black Americans continues at their current rates, by 2050 the total Black Fertility Rate will surely have dropped to 1.3 or lower and the Black American population will face the horrors of irreversibility.
Walter B. Hoye II, President of the Issues4Life Foundation and the subject of a new book entitled “Black and Pro-Life In America” says: “The data is clear. Actually, the data is very clear. And according to the data, abortion is the #1 cause of death in Black America.”
Mournfully, Hoye continues: “In 1965, Cecil Moore, president of the of the local Philadelphia NAACP chapter said. Planned Parenthood’s plan is ‘replete with everything to help the Negroes commit race suicide.’”
Apparently, Cecil Moore was right … Lord, Save Us!
