Black Genocide

According to some groups in the U.S state of Georgia, black children are an endangered species.

The anti-abortion groups have placed huge billboards across the city of Atlanta saying that abortion is killing off the African-American race. Their argument being that white people have deliberately targeted black women for abortion to reduce their numbers. They even go as far to equate it with slavery.

When I lived in Atlanta, I worked for G-CAPP (Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention), which helped to educate young girls on pregnancy and to limit the numbers of children they had.

This was for various reasons. Ranging from  lack of education, poverty and being able to to fully understand what raising a child involves. I think this ‘genocide’ argument is very disingenuous and misleading.
