(CNSNews.com) – Rev. Bill Owens, president of the Coalition of African American Pastors, said Tuesday that the Obama administration’s promotion of abortion “is promoting murder.”

“Something has to be done, and for this man, this administration to promote abortion is promoting murder,” Owens said at the National Press Club on Tuesday when CNSNews.com asked about a report showing that more unborn black babies were aborted than born in New York City.

As CNSNews.com previously reported, in 2012, the number of black babies killed by abortion totaled 31,328, while those born totaled 24,758, according to the New York City Department of Health and Hygiene.

The report, entitled Summary of Vital Statistics 2012 The City of New York, Pregnancy Outcomes, was prepared by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Vital Statistics.

At an event where Owens and his group launched a petition campaign to impeach Attorney General Eric Holder for his efforts to “impose” same-sex marriage through fiat, CNSNews.com asked Owens: “According to the New York City Department of Health, there were more black babies aborted than were born. What should [New York] Gov. [Andrew] Cuomo do about that?”

“Something has to be done, and for this man, this administration to promote abortion is promoting murder,” Owens said. “I’m talking about Obama and Holder.

“It’s an evil,” Owens said. “This society is becoming evil.”

Owens said adoption is a much better option than abortion and criticized Planned Parenthood.

“I have many concerns, and that is one of them,” Owens said. “Promote this organization [Planned Parenthood] that kills and put them in all in black neighborhoods – that’s sick.

“And for [Obama] to support it shows he has no feelings toward little black children,” Owens said.
