    Care Net Calls on President Obama to Make Abortion Rare: Offers Proven Solutions in Underserved Communities

    Care Net Press Release
    November 06, 2012

     

    LANSDOWNE, VA: Care Net CEO Roland Warren commented on President Obama’s re-election, calling him to fulfill a promise made in his first term: to make abortion rare. Waren offered Care Net's proven solutions to help him reach that goal:

    “In 2010, President Obama talked about the importance of making abortion “rare.” Sadly, the record of his administration so far has been a record of expanding abortion. Yet most American women agree: abortion is not the best solution in an unplanned pregnancy situation. Care Net has proven abortion-reducing solutions that empower women to make life-affirming decisions and create their own success stories.

    “Pregnancy centers are now providing more resources than ever before in places where abortion has reached epidemic proportions – our nation’s inner cities,” Warren continued. “The good news is the passion we see among urban church and community leaders who are committed to reversing abortion statistics by building local pregnancy centers. Through Care Net’s Underserved Outreach Initiative, practical help and emotional support is now available to women in urban areas like Philadelphia, Detroit, Atlanta, and Richmond.”

    Care Net Vice President of Underserved Outreach, Rev. Dean Nelson, understands the need for abortion alternatives: “When you recognize that the number of abortions actually outnumbers live births, it is easy to see the need for renewal in some urban communities,” he said. “Care Net is providing those life-affirming solutions.”

    On Oct. 12th in Richmond, Virginia, where nearly half of the city’s pregnancies end in abortion, the East End Pregnancy Test and Help Center opened to serve the community with pregnancy tests, material assistance, and peer counseling on pregnancy options.

    “The opening of pregnancy centers like the East End Pregnancy Test and Help Center is a positive challenge to the status quo in cities like Richmond, where abortion might feel like the only option,” Warren said. “I look forward to opening a dialogue with the President about how to harness the power of faith-based volunteerism to reduce abortion, building a culture of compassion instead of hopelessness, to serve and empower women.”

    Hispanics, Black Americans Differ on Legality of Abortion Despite Moral Objections

    A poll titled The African American & Hispanic Reproductive Issues Survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) revealed that although many black Americans find abortion morally wrong, they are not opposed to its legal status.

    The poll found that Hispanic Americans' views on the morality and legal status of abortion, however, are much more closely linked.

    "Like most Americans, black Americans and Hispanic Americans bring a complex set of identities to the issue of abortion," said Dr. Robert P. Jones, CEO of the Public Religion Research Institute. "For example, majorities of both black Americans and Hispanic Americans simultaneously identify as both 'pro-choice' and 'pro-life.'"

    The present survey, which is an update on another PRRI abortion survey conducted in 2011, showed that a little bit more than half, or 52 percent of Black Americans who find abortion to be morally wrong think that it should be legal in all or almost all cases, compared to only 25 percent of Hispanics who believe the same. The 2011 survey had identified that 67 percent of black Americans and 46 percent of Hispanics in total think that abortion should be legal.

    Hispanic and African-Americans liked using both of the phrases "pro-life" and "pro-choice" to describe themselves. Seventy-one percent of black Americans and 77 percent of Hispanics said that "pro-life" describes them very well, but at the same time 75 percent of black Americans and 72 percent of Hispanics said the same of the phrase "pro-choice."

    The survey also took a deeper look into how views on abortion are formed in the black and Hispanic communities, with religion emerging as a major factor.

    Abortion Practitioner Refers to Killing “Ugly Black Babies”

    The abortion industry has always had a racial component — since the days of Margaret Sanger and her eugenics past — and more evidence of the inherent racism within abortion has come to light.

    Day Gardner, President of the National Black Pro-Life Union, is alerting people to a video that shows abortion practitioner Ashutosh Ron Virmani referring to the black children that he kills as “ugly black babies.”

    “Let me see one of you adopt one of those ugly black babies,” she says.

    “Excuse me? It’s all too obvious that he has a particular disgust for black babies and therefore has no problems killing them,” Gardner responds. “The black community should be outraged because Ashutosh Virmani is a brazen racist and his statement supports what we already know of the billion dollar abortion industry–black babies are targeted because they are seen as poor, worthless and maybe even ‘ugly.’”

    Updated 07/22/12 – 4:34 p.m.

    CHICAGO (CBS) – The family of a Chicago woman who died after an abortion at Planned Parenthood says it wants answers about her death.

    Tonya Reaves, 24, died late Friday night from a hemorrhage, with a cervical dilation and evacuation, as well as an intrauterine pregnancy as contributing causes, according to the medical examiner’s office.

    She died after she’d had an abortion at Planned Parenthood at 18 S. Michigan Av, according to the medical examiner’s office.

    Her death was ruled an accident, but the Reaves family wants to know more, especially Tonya’s twin sister Toni.

    “We were born the same day. She was my other half,” Toni said.

    Toni Reaves said the family is trying to get through this.

    “It happened so fast. She was just fine one day and then the next day she was gone. We’re just trying to figure out what happened… what happened,” she said.

    Toni Reaves said her sister was engaged to be married and had one son – Alvin – who just had his first birthday.

    In a written statement, Planned Parenthood of Illinois CEO Carole Brite said “We were shocked and saddened upon learning of a tragic development at a nearby hospital. Our hearts go out to the loved ones of this patient.

    “While legal abortion services in the United States have a very high safety record, a tragedy such as this is devastating to loved ones and we offer our deepest sympathies. Planned Parenthood of Illinois cares deeply about the health and safety of each and every patient. We do not publicly discuss private patient matters and we follow HIPAA laws that forbid the disclosure of patient information.”

    Black Magazine Essence Partners with Planned Parenthood

    Sometimes in life our most painful wounds are self-inflicted. Nowhere is that more evident, today, than in the black community.

    Black entertainment, political, religious and academic leaders have tragically thrown their support behind the singular highest source of death in the black community—the abortion industry. Who needs cowards in white pointy hoods to promote racism and death when you can get Planned Parenthood to be the sponsor of one of the largest national African-American events?

    One would think Planned Parenthood would be considered an enemy, not an event sponsor for Essence magazine’s annual Essence Music Festival.

    The magazine has been in bed with Planned Parenthood for years, though, and is a multiple recipient of the population control chain’s annualMargaret Sanger Award. They even co-sponsored a national conference to help Planned Parenthood and its media allies strategize on how to combat my organization’s TooManyAborted.comcampaigns.

    In the inverted world of abortion activism The Radiance Foundation is denounced for attempting to save black babies and restore black families, while Planned Parenthood (an organization that has killed more people than died in the holocaust) is regarded as a sponsor worth celebrating.

    The Negro Project 2.0, using influential black celebrities to misinform the masses, was in full effect in New Orleans. Planned Parenthood’s website boasts not only of chronic race-baiter Al Sharptonheadlining their circus of propaganda, but that the popular festival “is not only a great cultural event but also a great opportunity to educate festival attendees about health disparities” in the black community.

    For the hundreds of thousands of attendees at this New Orleans event, that education didn’t include the facts about how unintended pregnancy rates continues to soar in the black community (while lowering among the white population) despite Planned Parenthood’s dominance in urban areas.
