“59.8% of African-American pregnancies in NYC ended in abortion”.

 

To think that 6 out of every 10 African American Babies in New York City are killed is just beyond belief.  How does one begin to try and understand.  What have we become?  The Mother’s womb should be safest place for a child but it has become the most dangerous.

The City of New York’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene released the above statistic, and also told us that across the total city of New York that  41% of babies are aborted.   That’s 4 out of every 10 babies in New York City are aborted.

New York is not some strange isolated place where this happens, it is estimated that every day 120,000 babies are killed in their mother’s womb across the world.  That’s about 45 million babies killed a year.  To put that figure into perspective, each year the same number of babies are killed as the total causalties of six years of WW2, including extermination camps.

What have we become?  We read statistics like the above and we casually turn the page to see the weather forecast.

Do all you can to help the pro-life fight, and pray pray pray.  Here is the beautiful prayer the Pope composed for us.

Lord Jesus,

You who faithfully visit and fulfill with your Presence
the Church and the history of men;
You who in the miraculous Sacrament of your Body and Blood
render us participants in divine Life
and allow us a foretaste of the joy of eternal Life;
We adore and bless you.

Prostrated before You, source and lover of Life,
truly present and alive among us, we beg you.

Reawaken in us respect for every unborn life,
make us capable of seeing in the fruit of the maternal womb
the miraculous work of the Creator,
open our hearts to generously welcoming every child
that comes into life.

Bless all families,
sanctify the union of spouses,
render fruitful their love.

Accompany the choices of legislative assemblies
with the light of your Spirit,
so that peoples and nations may recognize and respect
the sacred nature of life, of every human life.

Guide the work of scientists and doctors,
so that all progress contributes to the integral well-being of the person,
and no one endures suppression or injustice.

Give creative charity to administrators and economists,
so they may realize and promote sufficient conditions
so that young families can serenely embrace
the birth of new children.

Console the married couples who suffer
because they are unable to have children
and in Your goodness provide for them.

Teach us all to care for orphaned or abandoned children,
so they may experience the warmth of your Charity,
the consolation of your divine Heart.

Together with Mary, Your Mother, the great believer,
in whose womb you took on our human nature,
we wait to receive from You, our Only True Good and Savior,
the strength to love and serve life,
in anticipation of living forever in You,
in communion with the Blessed Trinity. Amen
