February 9, 2024, Letter to the Editor of The Dayton Daily News

February is “Black History Month” – a time we honor many black people: scientists, physicians, business leaders, military leaders, and many other black people who, with determination and character, have accomplished much, in spite of unfair and difficult circumstances, and have been an asset to mankind.

During the month, we emphasize the importance of black families – mothers, fathers, and especially our precious black children. Also, much is heard about black pride and the history of the struggle for freedom and full recognition of civil and human rights for black people. In recent years, a national campaign has asserted that “Black Lives Matter”.

Also, during this month, black mothers, many times accompanied by the fathers of their babies, other family members, or friends, are going into abortion centers to abort their babies. At the abortion facility in my in my community I have seen a few black fathers fight for their babies and convince the mother not to abort. But, sadly, most fathers suupport the mothers in killing their black babies..

The Ohio Department of Health reports that 17,201 abortions were performed on Ohio residents in 2022 and of that total, 7,713 or 45% were black babies (ODH 2022 report). U.S. Census estimates show that blacks comprised 13% of the Ohio population (Census Report).

In Montgomery County, Ohio, where I reside, blacks made up 22% of the population in 2022, but accounted for 638 or 57% of the total of 1,111 elective abortions performed on Montgomery County mothers (ODH 2022 report).

As someone who is frequently at the abortion center in my community offering positive alterntives to abortion-minded mothers, I have yet to see anyone from “Black Lives Matter” show up and plead with black mothers not to slaughter their babies in the womb.

And there is a chilling, deafening silence from the black community, the black pastors, and groups like the NAACP. So, do Black Lives really Matter to them? Is this honoring the black race?
