Abortion Kills 185% More People in Black America than All Thirteen Other Leading Causes of Death

According to the National Vital Statistics Report, Vol. 65, No. 2 dated February 16, 2016, the total number of deaths in Black America from the thirteen leading causes of death is 232,335. Abortion dramatically increases that toll.

Let's do the math ...
232,335 Black Deaths (13 leading causes) +
429,000 Black Abortions in 2013
------------
661,335 Total Black Deaths

Abortion represents a 185% increase in deaths from all 13 other leading causes of death in Black America, according to Dennis Howard, President of the Movement for a Better America, who has written extensively on abortion demographics. Howard says, "Abortion is the number one cause of death in Black America. No other cause of death in Black America, even comes close."

Live births in Black America for 2013 amounted to 634,760, leaving a Black Life Deficit of (26,575). In Black America, more people are dying than being born. If not for abortion, the Black community would be growing by over 400,000 lives a year. If Black America is going to continue to exist, our priorities must change.
