Racial Disparity in Preterm Births

According to a study in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, Volume 13 Number 4, Winter 2008, entitled "Does Induced Abortion Account for Racial Disparity in Preterm Births, and Violate the Nuremberg Code?" Black American women have three (3) times the risk of suffering an early preterm birth (EPB, birth under 32 weeks) and four (4) times the risk of an extremely preterm birth (XPB, birth under 28 weeks). This report, authored by Brent Rooney, M.Sc., Byron C. Calhoun, M.D., M.B.A. and Lisa E. Roche, J.D., reports a "statistically significant" increase in the risk of EBP or XPB in women who have a history of induced abortion (IA) when compared to women with no history of induced abortion (IA).

XPB Babies Have A 129 Times Higher Risk

When one considers the fact that XPB babies have a 129 times higher risk of being born with the horribly debilitating effects of cerebral palsy (CP) and according to Rooney, Calhoun and Roche, "about 43% of pregnancies in Black American women end in induced abortion (IA)" alone and when you understand that these numbers describe a rate of death in the Black community that only reflects the impact of induced abortion (IA), you are at a point where you are beginning to understand that my people are dying.

There Are No Safe Abortions

According to Rooney, Calhoun and Roche, "about 43% of pregnancies in Black American women end in IA." In the United States of America the most common IA method is Vacuum Aspiration Abortion (VAA). This study reveals the fact that VAA has never been proven safe in animal studies. This information is significant because the use of procedures that have not been proven safe in animal studies is a violation of the "Nuremberg Code Of Ethics On Human Research And Experimentation." All abortions shed innocent blood. All abortions terminate the life of a child. There are no safe abortions.

Brothers, we really need to talk.
