Cardinal looks for an apology for the “black genocide” abortion of black babies.

The rates of abortion among the black community does not sit well with South African Cardinal Wilfrid Napier. He expressed his disappointment and is seeking apologies for the high number of black babies that have been aborted, referring to the act as “black genocide.”

Cardinal Napier posted a number of tweets which showed the number of babies that have been aborted in U.S.A. since the Supreme Court made the legal decision after the 1973 Roe v. Wade case. According to the statistics collected from Planned Parenthood’s own Guttmacher Institute, more that 57 million babies have been aborted. He made a rhetorical tweet on the issue saying “Isn’t this something we should be apologizing for?”

According to him, the abortion industry represents a racist institution that is aimed to eliminate blacks in United States. This has been attributed to the high number of black babies that have been aborted compared to white babies. Data collected in 2012 indicates that for every 1,000 live births, 127 white babies are aborted while for every 1,000 live births, there are 444 aborted black babies.

However, the CDC also reports more white women had abortions in 2012 than black women. Non-Hispanic white women accounted for 37.6% of abortions and non-Hispanic black women accounted for 36.7% of abortions.

Cardinal Napier viewed this practice as “genocide” for the blacks and they are exposed to extinction since they only constitute to about 12.8 percent of the American total population. “That figure starts looking like a genocide when one factors in that Black women make up only 13% of total number of women in USA” Napier tweeted.

His feelings have also been echoed by Reverend Clenard H. Childress Jr. As a result, Rev Clenard Childress has built a national ministry around this matter in an effort to create awareness about the threat to “black lives.”

The issue of black abortion has been linked to a conspiracy theory. “Black genocide” is a term that was first used in 1967 at the first Black Power Conference.
