LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12, 2011 /Christian Newswire/–The Issues4Life Foundation, in partnership with The Radiance Foundation, launches an abortion awareness and pro-adoption themed campaign, entitled “Endangered Species.” California is the nation’s abortion capital with over 208,000 abortions (in the latest year reported) among its 424 abortion clinics. This African-American led initiative exposes Planned Parenthood’s racist and eugenics-based history and unaltered course. According to the CDC, the black abortion rate is 3 times that of whites and 2 times that of all other races combined–differences which cannot be explained by “lack of access” or “health care disparities.” Seventy (70) billboards stating “Black Children Are An Endangered Species–TooManyAborted.Com” are placed throughout Los Angeles.
Walter B. Hoye II, President of the Issues4Life Foundation, an African-American leader committed to ending abortion, has raised awareness nationwide. “The impact of abortion in the African-American community is the Darfur of America,” Hoye declares citing the 50 million aborted since 1973, 18 million of which are African-American.
The Radiance Foundation’s co-founder, Ryan Bomberger, is the Creator/Director of the TooManyAborted.com campaign and was, as a child, transracially adopted into a multi-racial family of 15. “Taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood aborted 324,008 innocent lives and only made 2,405 adoption referrals according to their own latest Annual Report; that’s 135 children killed for every 1 adoption referral,” Bomberger says. “Choice is a sham.”
Dr. La Verne Tolbert, PhD, a former Board Member of Planned Parenthood knows about the abortion chain’s tactics. “In California, children are targeted for abortions through school-based clinics and school-linked clinics, which are family planning clinics on or near school grounds. Girls are taken off campus to a Planned Parenthood clinic, where abortions are performed without parental consent or notification.”
The Issues4life Foundation is a nonprofit organization, based in California, dedicated to protecting human life from our biological beginning until death and works directly with African-American leaders nationwide to strengthen their stand against abortion.
The Radiance Foundation is a nonprofit organization, based in Atlanta, that seeks to inspire people to live a life of meaning. Through various forms of media, speaking engagements, public awareness campaigns and community outreach efforts, they illuminate the intrinsic value each person possesses.
