Pastor Enters Third Week in Jail for Pro-Life Stand

From Citizenlink:

The Rev. Walter Hoye is beginning his third week in jail for holding a sign outside an Oakland, Calif., abortion clinic. He was jailed for a month and fined $1,000.

On Saturday, supporters held a rally and press conference in front of City Hall in Oakland. And life advocates from around the world can send him letters of encouragement.

Writing from jail, Hoye called on his fellow pastors to keep the scourge of abortion prevalent in the minds of their congregations.

“Brothers, in Black America alone every seventy-two seconds a black baby is murdered in the womb of his or her mother,” he wrote. “This holocaust is genocidal to the point that today a black child has less than a fifty-percent chance of being born. According to the 2006 U.S. Census, Black Americans are below the replacement level.

“In other words, death in Black America outpaces life. … There is no question pre-natal murder, abortion, is the number one issue in not only Black America, but in all of America today.”
