… today, half of all black children are aborted.

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — A Republican member of Congress has released a new video showing him talking about the status of abortion in the United States. Rep.

Franks, who has sponsored legislation responding to the high rate of abortions in the African-American community, released his comments to liberal blogger Mike Stark.

“In this country, we had slavery for God knows how long,” Frank says. Nowadays, he says Americans look back and ask about society for allowing it: “What was the matter with them? You know, I can’t believe, you know, four million slaves. It is a crushing mark on America’s soul.”

“And yet today, half of all black children are aborted. Half of all black children are aborted,” Franks continues.
