Law school deans chastise student for column saying abortion No. 1 killer of black Americans

Ohio State University law student Madison Gesiotto has received threats over social media, was labeled a racist by OSU’s Black Law Students Association, and was chastised by no less than three deans at her law school.

Her crime? She recently wrote a pro-life column published in The Washington Times highlighting statistics to illustrate “the number one killer of black Americans is abortion.”

“In 2011, 402 black Americans were aborted in America every single day,” she wrote in late October. “However, in the same year, only 187 black Americans died per day from heart disease, 183 black Americans died per day from cancer, 21 black Americans were murdered per day, and 12 black Americans died per day in motor vehicle accidents.”
