Walter B. Hoye II, President of the Issues4Life Foundation says: "When a man has sex with a woman he is consenting to being a FATHER. We want to emphasize the biblical requirement and vital need for men to be involved as PROVIDERS and PROTECTORS when 'LIFE' happens."
In the mid 60s, an alarming 25% of black children were born to single mothers. Today, 41% of all U.S. children (72.3% of black children and 35.7% of white children) are born to unmarried households. This is a major crisis.
Ryan Bomberger, Chief Creative Officer of The Radiance Foundation and creator of the TooManyAborted.com campaigns, explains: "Men have been empowered by Roe v. Wade to have sex and run. They've been forced out of their crucial role by perpetual welfare and today's brand of liberal feminism."
"Too many men have abdicated their responsibility in the home," says La Verne Tolbert, Ph.D., former New York City Planned Parenthood Board Member and part of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition. "The pervasiveness of a fatherless society is the tragic result of this moral decline. Today's alarming abortion rates demonstrate the need for men to, once again, become the protectors of their children and the guardians of their families."
"The words of my Father influenced my mother to schedule an appointment to abort me," says Christina Marie Martin, the Director of Bound4Life Atlanta. "Fathers possess great power to protect life or destroy it."The Issues4life Foundation is a nonprofit organization, based in California, dedicated to protecting human life from our biological beginning and works with Black leaders nationwide.
