ATLANTA, Nov. 1, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Citing the deaths of hundreds of women, Dr. Alveda King, Dr. Day Gardner and Rev. Catherine Davis of the National Black Prolife Coalition Women's IT COULD HAVE BEEN ME PROJECT are urging everyone to vote biblical values on November 6.
"Life is precious and beautiful. The brutal deaths of women who die by abortion warrant a vote for life and family. Stop the killing; vote for life," said Dr. King who heads up www.africanamericanoutreach.com.
Walter B. Hoye II, founder of Issues4Life Foundation, sanctions this urgent appeal: "Abortion, the most unregulated surgical procedure in the nation, has left a trail of dead women and over 55 million babies in its wake. Last July, Tonya Reaves died from an abortion done in a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Chicago. Ms. Reaves isn't a poster child. She was a soon to be married, beautiful Black woman, mother and twin sister who is yet another victim of the abortion's industry's criminal negligence and depraved indifference toward woman and children. My wife and I are praying this tragedy awakens the collective conscience of Black America to this wretched, unregulated and tax-payer funded industry that is profiting from the deaths of our women and children." Rev. Hoye is a leader in the call for a criminal investigation into the death of Ms. Reaves and other women harmed by abortion."
In television and radio commercials, the group notes that fathers, mothers, womb babies and society at large are at risk.
"DBA is alarming. Millions of babies have died, thousands of women have been maimed and hundreds of women have died from legal abortions in America since the passage of Roe VS Wade. It could have been me or someone you love," said Dr. Gardner, founder of the National Black Prolife Union.
NBPC's national efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion provider, is advancing their ongoing "awareness campaign" to inform, educate and activate people to get involved to end the "scourge of abortion." A biblical prolife vote is part of their message.
"The best way to help people is not to fund abortion and contraceptives, but rather support biblical values. People need jobs and education, not abortions," added Dr. King.
"We're not advocating a personality contest for voters next week. This issue is too important to play politics. The truth isn't always politically correct. We want voters to go to the polls and not stay home. We want people to remember God and life when they go to vote," added Dr. Gardner.
