Black Pro-Life Videos Go Viral

ve8QAd   |   October 13, 2011

In this day and age, effective communication is absolutely essential. Attention spans are short and the message must be engaging and thought-provoking. That’s why Life Issues Institute, through the work of our Urban Outreach department, is proud to be part of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition (NBPC). Together we’re reaching the black community with an amazingly effective message of life and hope.

NBPC is a network of pro-life and pro-family organizations committed to restoring a culture that celebrates life and family in the black community, cultivating hope. NBPC has launched a social media video campaign entitled: Numbers Don’t Lie. We have been privileged to help underwrite this crucial and exciting project.

Two videos in this 3-part campaign have now been released and are going viral, creating a dramatic buzz across the country. The videos can be viewed at Protecting Black Life.

Arnold M. Culbreath, Life Issues Institute’s Urban Outreach Director, said, “Although abortion remains the leading cause of death in the African American community, outpacing all other causes of death combined, still too few black Americans are aware of this tragic truth. I’m happy to say that these powerful, 1-minute, truth-filled videos are doing exactly what they were designed to do. That is to capture the nation’s attention, to trumpet the truth and to initiate dialog in the midst of the busy, sound-bite society in which we live.”
The first video is called Epidemic and was released July 1, intentionally coinciding with the anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This landmark federal legislation outlawed major forms of eugenics-based discrimination against blacks and women. The Coalition believes that the Civil Rights Act should also recognize babies in the womb as a class of unprotected human beings targeted by abortion.

The second video was released in late July and is called The Number 1 Killer. This video not only highlights the country’s current shocking black abortion statistics, but also exposes black organizations and leaders the Coalition is convinced have betrayed the black community for personal or political gain by their support of abortion, or their intentional refusal to address it. The Coalition’s Number 1 Killer video reached 25,000 hits on YouTube in just 3 days.

Ryan Bomberger, Chief Creative Officer of The Radiance Foundation and designer of the NBPC videos, had a vision and a plan of action. “The Numbers Don’t Lie video series exposes Planned Parenthood’s most vulnerable weakness—the facts. They can dress up the epidemic of abortion with any euphemism-du-jour, but it won’t change who they are to the core: America’s largest killing machine. It’s time for their corrupt enterprise of injustice and inhumanity to be shut down just as the abolitionists ended the vile institution of slavery.”

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. MLK, Jr., is also an active member of NBPC and shared her passion for their mission at hand. “There is an abortion epidemic in America, and the numbers don’t lie! The NBPC video trilogy is very riveting and the powerful delivery invokes such strong awareness in the viewers as to promote immediate non-violent action to end the scourge of abortion that plagues the African American community and the world at large.”

The third and final video is currently in production. The Coalition promises that it won’t disappoint. Make sure you take a moment to watch these amazing encapsulated messages. Then join the viral movement and share them with others through Twitter, Facebook, email lists and websites. Together we can make a difference that will protect future generations of the black community.
