Catherine Davis, community activist and human resources professional with a heart for black women and families, says public health statistics prove abortion disproportionately impacts black women.
And while it’s true more black babies are aborted than born in New York City in recent years, Davis faces pushback from other African-Americans who refuse to acknowledge the problem.
Catherine’s voice is grounded in faith and seasoned with God’s truth. Her passion stems from repenting two abortions as a young adult. She says, “In listening to men of God teaching about abortion that was the day I had to face what I had done.”
Repentance has made her an antiabortion warrior for the cause of defending the weak and helping women make a better choice. But it hasn’t been easy nor smooth. At the 2017 March for Life she told the Washington Post, “Many of us have been ridiculed and belittled and put down. They say that we were trying to make an issue racial that wasn’t racial, they say we’ve sold out to the white agenda,” Davis said.
She said she could use more black female allies in her cause.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Proverbs 31:9 NLT
