(CNSNews.com) – At the March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Monday, the Rev. Luke Robinson said that pro-abortion activists want black leaders to be silent about what legalized abortion is doing to America because President Barack Obama is black.

“These so-called freedom fighters, just the instruments of the culture of death, they want us to be silent because the president is a black man,” said Rev. Robinson, who is pastor of the Quinn Chapel AME Church in Frederick, Md. “But he and his administration is leading this nation, and especially the African-Americans, to absolute destruction."

The Rev. Robinson was delivering the final address to the March for Life, which is held every year on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to protest the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that said abortion is a constitutional right.

“We need godly leadership,” said Rev. Robinson. “Last year it was reported that the African-American community of New York was being devastated by abortion. The report was that 60 percent of all the impregnations in New York City of the African-American community ended in the death of the children."

Rev. Robinson said that the large percentage of black babies who are aborted is a “tragedy,” and added: “Where is the voice of President Obama? Where is the voice of Jesse Jackson? Where is the voice Al Sharpton? Where is the voice of the Black Congressional Caucus? Where is the voice of the great Democratic party?
