Glorya Jordan, a mother of four from Woodbridge, Va., said not enough is being done to give black women options to abortion. She brought a sign to the march that read “Black Lives Matter, born and pre-born.”
“It’s important for the African American community to realize that we’re doing this to ourselves,” Jordan said, noting that in New York City the number of abortions exceeded the number of births among black women. In 2014, the most recent figures available, the city’s health department reported 23,680 births and 27,367 induced terminations among black women.
The stay-at-home mom said she voted for a third-party candidate, shunning both Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Trump. “Some of the comments he has made about women — and really about every other group — were inappropriate to say the least,” Jordan said. “However I do want him to stand for life. I do want him to stand for both the born and the pre-born. I’m hoping he will do that.”
Lots of women want to hold Trump accountable, just not in the manner that the Women’s-March-That-Excluded-Pro-Life-Women wants.
