Ryan Bomberger: ‘Abortion solves no social issue, gives no one equality, and ushers more deaths into communities already ravaged by violence’
July 25, 2022
WASHINGTON D.C. —Recently elected officials like Senator Warnock and Vice President Harris are publicly demonizing the pro-life community by trying to equate them with proponents of slavery from the old South. However, their claims could not be further from the truth, as pro-life advocates fight to protect every human life regardless of the beautiful hue of skin.
Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance, www.radiance.life), is a pro-life African-American leader, adoptee and adoptive father. As a columnist, author and international public speaker, he passionately calls out pro-abortion activists and politicians for their undying support for abortion.
“Abortion activists will stop at nothing in their attempts to silence and shame the pro-life voices that have persevered for the justice of the unborn for nearly 50 years,” Bomberger stated. “Tragically, many Black politicians claim to uplift the Black community as they celebrate the violent act of abortion that disproportionately destroys Black families and communities. No demographic is more exploited by the abortion industry than Black women.”
Bomberger continued, “Abortion is systemic racism. For years, more Black babies have been aborted than born alive in New York City. In 2018, for every 1,000 Black babies born alive, there were 1,226 aborted in the borough of Manhattan, where Planned Parenthood is headquartered — a ratio four times higher than whites and over two times higher than Hispanics.”
The late Dr. Mildred Jefferson (the first Black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School, first female surgeon at Boston Medical, and cofounder of the National Right to Life) had this to say about abortion:“I would guess that the abortionists have done more to get rid of generations and cripple others than all of the years of slavery and lynchings.”
As someone conceived in rape but adopted in love, Bomberger argued, “Today’s reproductive justice activists claim bodily autonomy is everything and that our humanity is second. No one is going to care about your body if they don’t regard you as human. Your body has no ‘rights’ when you’re viewed as property. Slavery was the denial of personhood, refusing to recognize that every person is a human, and every human is a person. Throughout history, heinous treatment of fellow human beings wasn’t the result of failing to see they had ‘rights over their bodies’ but that those somebodies had no inherent right to live. Slavery and abortion are the same wrongs, different century.
“Abortion causes American society to turn its back on the most marginalized and accept the status quo. A remnant, though, refuses to be silenced or intimidated. We love the most marginalized and fight peacefully to abolish this evil so that ‘created equal’ applies to every member of the human family.”
Bomberger concluded: “It’s way past time to unshackle the public from the lie that the violence of abortion — responsible for the commercialized killing of over 64 million human beings — is ‘freedom’ and ‘equality.’”
