Black pro-life leaders gathered on Monday in Philadelphia, Penn., for a day of mourning outside of Dr. Kermit Gosnell's clinic. They say in some black communities, more babies are aborted than are allowed to live.
Gosnell is the late-term abortionist charged with several counts of murder.
The pro-life leaders said the abortion industry has been using abortion for "population control" and their target is African Americans.
In many black communities, for every child actually born, three others are aborted -- more than double the rate among whites. In the last 25 years, 12 million blacks have been aborted.
Dr. Clenard Childress, founder of website Black Genocide, said the consequences of those figures will eventually end up destroying a whole race of Americans.
In his book titled No Shepherds Cry, Childress writes the black church can no longer be silent on the issue.
"If there's a devouring force that's decimating my community as a shepherd, I must respond with the truth and deliver the lamb with its young, with its young from the wolf and the devourer and the devourer is the abortion industry," Childress said.
Childress pointed out this information should come as no surprise, considering that black Americans were long ago targets of the abortion industry.
In the early 20th century, Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood, an organization that later became the nation's largest abortion provider. Sanger encouraged abortion and sterlization to limit the size of black families. Childress said she also used the unaware black minister to further her agenda.
"Margaret Sanger was a devout racist, a Eugenics and the author of the Negro Project that knew the colored minister was going to be pivotal in getting her program across," Childress said.
"The colored minister, the negro minister, the African American minister is pivotal right now in addressing the abortion issue because we have been silent due to political ties and due to some misinformation," he added.
