Another abortion mom, Linda Shrewsbury, declared that abortion is racist and tied it to the Holocaust effort to rid Germany of Jews. Shrewsbury, an African American, charged that abortion proponents target young black women. “Mission accomplished,” she said. “Thirty percent of all abortions in America are on black women and children.”
Smith said the goal of highlighting the stories of the women was to build national support for legislation to greatly curb abortion. “We’re optimistic,” he said.
Tuesday is the 40th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision. On Friday, some 400,000-600,000 anti-abortion protesters are expected to gather for the annual March for Life.
