While the media attempts to defend its uncritical coverage of what police increasingy suspect may be a hoax hate crime at the hands of a Hollywood actor, hundreds, if not, thousands of hate crimes were happening across the U.S., all of which were perfectly legal, according to Catholic Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier of South Africa.

 

Cardinal Napier denounced the practice of abortion as being the quintessential "hate crime" of our era, LifeNews reports.

"Is there any good reason, other than political correctness, why abortion is not defined as & declared immoral & illegal, as THE hate crime of our era?" Napier wrote on Twitter.

Last week, in response to a Fox News story about three abortion survivors, Napier said, "It’s unbelievable that we still have to be discussing the question of whether an unborn child is human! What else can it be? Even a toddler has no problem saying: Mummy’s going to have a baby!"

The explosive comment came in response to a tweet from pro-life group Live Action about how abortion providers overwhelmingly target the black community.

"There is no group that kills more black Americans than Planned Parenthood," said Live Action. "Abortion is the most lethal form of racism."

 

Live Action also shared a video featuring black pro-life activist Ryan Bomberger (who was conceived in rape) who has consistently spoken out about the racist roots of Planned Parenthood. Last year, Instagram even censored a meme in which he said that Planned Parenthood kills more black people than the KKK.

"Instagram deleted our post, threatening to restrict or disable our account if we violate their guidelines again," said Bomberger at the time. "The meme wasn’t threatening violence–it denounced racial violence, no matter the era. But Titans of Tolerance have no interest in the truth. They can delete our posts, and even our account, but they can’t delete the truth. And of course, there was no due process, no appeal process, no one to reach to correct this injustice. There was no option other than to click OK and the purge was complete."

He continued: "An image of a noose appears above those words as an instrument of racial violence (which killed an estimated 3,446 African-Americans). Today, an estimated 247 black lives are killed every day by Planned Parenthood with forceps, chemicals and other devices."

Bomberger also provided some deeply unsettling facts about Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger's well-documented history with racism and eugenics, something her supporters either ignore or attempt to explain away:

Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, boasted about keynoting a Ku Klux Klan meeting on in her autobiography (pp. 366-367). And no, not everyone was a racist in 1938, nor was every political figure open to speaking to a terrorist organization like the KKK. But Sanger found it amusing to address a secret meeting with KKK members and bragged about getting a dozen offers to speak to similar groups.

Sanger’s Planned Parenthood and Birth Control Review boards were filled with eugenicists who proudly paraded their vile racism and elitism. One of those was Lothrop Stoddard, a eugenicist, klansman, Planned Parenthood Board member and a prolific writer whose words inspired the NAZIS. His 1921 book, The Rising Tide of Color Against White World Supremacy (as if you need any further explanation than the title), was a blueprint for racial hygiene theory employed with grotesque and incomprehensible effect during the Holocaust.

Though African Americans make up only 13% of the U.S. population, 35% of babies killed in abortions are black. In New York City, data shows more black babies are aborted than are born.

 

As noted by LifeNews, research shows that abortion is "the No. 1 killer of black lives in America, more than heart disease, cancer, gun violence and other crimes."

"These comparisons are based on statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, Guttmacher Institute, National Vital Statistics Report and other reputable sources," notes the outlet.
