Breaking the Silence: A Biblical Response to the Abortion Crisis in Black America

Cornelius, Emmitt Jr.

Pricing details

$19.95
Race and abortion are arguably two of the most polarizing and controversial topics in the U.S. When the two intersect, as they have historically in this country, we are faced with one of the most explosive and divisive issues in modern American history. Between 55-60 million babies have been aborted in America since abortion on demand became legal in 1973. Approximately 20 million of these babies, almost one-third, were black, even though blacks constitute only 13% of the U.S. population. The truth is, abortion in black America can be traced back to slavery, eugenics, and years of racial discrimination. Sadly, few people are sounding the alarm about black abortions as a form of racial discrimination, even as abortion has become the number one killer in the black community, far exceeding the combined deaths caused by violence, drugs, AIDS, heart disease, cancer, and accidents. In this book, author and speaker Emmitt Cornelius Jr. addresses this issue head-on. With a writing style that's clear and poignant, he exposes the racist history of abortion, as well as the political, constitutional, cultural, scientific, and religious elements that account for abortion's rise as the number one killer in the black community. It then offers ways to end this tragic loss of innocent black lives, which some people are now calling the "black infant holocaust."
Emmitt Cornelius Jr. was born in Jackson, Mississippi, during the turbulent times of segregation and racial unrest in the South.
After graduating from an HBCU in Mississippi, he began his career as an accountant (what he thought would be his life's vocation). He later studied theology at Dallas Theological Seminary and Westminster Theological Seminary, where he was the first African-American Ph.D. graduate.
Cornelius enjoys reading and writing on issues of theology, race and religion. He is a passionate advocate for racial justice.
In his free time, he hangs out with his family, flies drones, binge-watches horror flicks, and samples the cuisine of different cultures with his wife Janice at restaurants in and around Atlanta.
