BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (ChurchMilitant.com) - The second National Day of Mourning is scheduled to memorialize the murder of 20,000,000 black babies, underscoring that "The most dangerous place for an African-American child is in the womb."
The event, scheduled for Aug. 30–31, is set to showcase how Planned Parenthood has deceived and destroyed black families.
Most reports cite that 20 million black babies have been murdered since the 1973 Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion in the United States.
Catherine Davis, president of The Restoration Project, one of the sponsors of the event, told Church Militant that 20 million is a low estimate, explaining:
It is difficult to get an accurate number of black lives lost to abortion because every state is not required to report their numbers, and Connecticut, Florida, California and Illinois do not report their numbers by skin color. What is consistently reported, however, is that black women obtain between 30–37% of abortions each year.
According to Right to Life Michigan, 36% of all abortions in the United States in 2014 were performed on black women, however, only about 13.3% of the total population is black.
Davis describes the event as "a processional — as in funeral," that protests Planned Parenthood's "socially engineered master plan called The Negro Project."
The Negro Project refers to Margaret Sanger's eugenic plan for black Americans. Bruce Fleury, an author who has written extensively on it, described it as a "diabolical, duplicitous, dangerous, disastrous and deadly plan for Black America."
Fleury sees the black population as being in mortal danger of extinction if Americans don't wake up and fight the battle against abortion.
It was initiated in 1939 by Sanger's Birth Control Federation of America, an early form of Planned Parenthood. Its purpose was to promote contraception use among the black population of the South, using black ministers to push the cause.
In a letter to Clarence Gamble, heir of the Procter and Gamble soap company, in 1939, Sanger wrote: "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the [Negro] minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
Davis explained the convoluted legal machination of Planned Parenthood of taking the "legal" act of abortion and implementing it in an illegal way, i.e., targeting Black women and babies based on the color of their skin, adding that it has not been legal to do so since the passage of the Civil Rights (1964) and Voting Rights Acts (1965).
Currently, Planned Parenthood has constructed or is constructing three mega (10,000 square feet or larger) abortion centers in black neighborhoods — one in the Churchill community of Richmond, Virginia, one in the Cherry neighborhood (the oldest black neighborhood) in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the third in Birmingham, Alabama, just blocks from the historic 16th Street Baptist Church.
In protest of these new constructions and to expose Planned Parenthood's agenda of extermination, a processional will begin at the Mt. Olivet Church in Churchill, Virginia, moving to Raleigh, Noth Carolina; Charlotte, North Carolina, and onto Atlanta, Georgia. The processional will conclude in Birmingham, Alabama, with a rally and prayer meeting.
The National Day of Mourning is sponsored by the Civil Rights for the Unborn, the Douglass Leadership Institute and The Restoration Project.
In honor of the massacred innocents and many of their moms, women will wear white and men will wear black.

The first National Day of Mourning took the form of a protest in front of Kermit Gosnell's abortion clinic in Philadelphia in 2011.
Gosnell, subject of the eponymous book and film Gosnell: The Untold Story of America's Most Prolific Serial Killer, has been described as the "horrific millionaire abortionist" representing "the natural consequence of rabid pro-abortion advocacy."
Davis told Church Militant: "I will stop when Planned Parenthood stops. I can't stop fighting against their genocide until they stop targeting black women and babies. We will protest their presence in our communities and we will pray for God's intervention to stop the genocide and protection for all innocent life."
