As Biden heads to Georgia, SFLAction Says “Life and Death Stakes” Makes Voting Pro-Life First the Responsibility of Every Voter
SFLAction’s Toni McFadden describes the importance of that race in an op-ed titled “As a Black Woman with a Voice, I Must Fight to Save My Race”
“My choice in any election and the choice now in Georgia is to Vote Pro-Life First to address the acknowledged racism of abortion industry founders like Margaret Sanger and infamous eugenics supporter Marie Stopes among others, and to end their abortion legacy seen in the dramatic loss of black lives to abortion,” writes McFadden.
SFLAction notes that more than 200 Students and Staff headed to the state in January.
ATLANTA, GA, & WASHINGTON D.C. (12-15-2020) – As Joe Biden headed to Georgia today, Students for Life Action President Kristan Hawkins announced that more than 200 staff and students would be headed to Georgia for door knocking and voter engagement because the “life and death stakes in this race makes voting pro-life first the responsibility of every Georgia voter.” The issue of abortion is front and center in the race with GOP candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue writing today in an op-ed about the abortion positions about both of their Democratic rivals. Also this week, more than 25 Black pastors signed a letter to Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock, calling on him to stop using the Bible to advance his abortion support.
SFLA/SFLAction Minority Outreach and Healthy Relationships Director Toni McFadden discussed the issue of race in this election cycle in an op-ed at Townhall, where she observed.
“The same harm of slavery continues today as another class of people are robbed of their human right to life—the preborn—and it is for them that I fight. And once again, people of my race suffer more greatly because of what Roe v. Wade currently allows. Consider that ‘the abortion rate for black women is almost five times that for white women,’ according to the Guttmacher Institute …
Do you know what the No. 1 killer of Blacks is? It’s not black on black crime, police brutality, guns, drugs, or heart disease cancer. It’s abortion, which has killed more of us than AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined.”
