Ryan Bomberger responds to media fearmongering over pro-life protections in Black communities

‘Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion business, kills more black lives in two weeks than the vile Ku Klux Klan killed in a century’

February 7, 2022

WASHINGTON D.C. A recent AP News article analyzed the growing concern among Hispanic and Black abortion activists as the pro-life community continually grows optimistic over the Dobbs v. Jackson case currently in the Supreme Court. According to the article, in Mississippi—the state in which the Dobbs v. Jackson case originated—minorities comprise 44% of the population but make up 80% of women receiving abortions. The article also claims that black women in states with restrictive abortion laws often have limited access to health care, a lack of choices for effective birth control and ineffective or inadequate sex education in schools. The article never mentions the nearly 3,000 pregnancy medical clinics who provide free care, material supplies and parenting education and support to nearly one million women each year.   

Pro-abortion lobbyists in these communities argue that “abortion restrictions are racist” as restrictions will directly impact black and brown women more than white women. However, Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance, www.radiance.life), advocates for another angle—that abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood use this propaganda to encourage women to kill their unborn children.

Bomberger stated, “Black women are the most targeted by the abortion industry, yet mainstream media goes out of its way to dishonestly paint the protection of vulnerable women and babies as racist. Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion business, kills more black lives in two weeks than the vile Ku Klux Klan killed in a century. Which is more racist? There’s currently no lack of access to abortion in black communities where abortion rates are 3.6 times higher than the majority population. Research has shown that nearly 80% of Planned Parenthood’s abortion facilities, which supposedly provide the full spectrum of contraceptive care, are located in predominantly Black and Hispanic neighborhoods. The truth is systemic racism is a government-funded entity (e.g. Planned Parenthood) that disproportionately kills black lives—a tragic 360 humans destroyed per day.”
