Our Founder Believes ...
"Abortion is a form of discrimination. Just as Black Americans were enslaved and disqualified from constitutionally protected personhood because of their skin color. Just as Jews were legally put to death and disqualified from constitutionally protected personhood because of their ethnicity. Today, the pre-born child is disqualified from constitutionally protected personhood because of his or her size, level of development, environment and|or dependency." — Walter B. Hoye II
"The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority." — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Strength to Love, 1963.
"The Negro cannot win if he is willing to sell the future of his children for his personal and immediate comfort and safety." — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Every great institution is the lengthened shadow of a single man. His character determines the character of the organization." — Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Self-Reliance", 1841
The Issues4life Foundation targets and works directly with Black American leaders nationwide to strengthen their stand against abortion on demand and resolve the issues surrounding the moral responsibility of biotechnology in the Black American community. We understand that abortion will not stop until Black American's stop having abortions. The Issues4life Foundation supports the California Human Rights Amendment.
Our strategy is to settle the facts. Who is the baby and what does abortion do to him or her.
Our mission is to end abortion by raising awareness of the impact of abortion and the biblically immoral implementation of biotechnology in the Black American community.
· Zero lives lost to abortion or the biblically immoral implementation of biotechnology.
· Zero leaders unaware of the impact of abortion or the biblically moral responsibility of biotechnology.
We can see a world, where women and children, those whose human dignity is most vulnerable to abuse, are defended, protected and provided for.
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." — (2nd Chronicles 7:14)

The Biological Evidence
Human biology has been incredibly revealing. The biological evidence for the humanity of the unborn child is undeniable, and even advocates of abortion rights now admit this.
We believe all "children deserve birth!"
