Well, The Huffington Post says it’s local black leaders (mostly male), but it also could have been stufff like SisterSong, a coalition of 80 women of color and Indigenous women’s organizations. They write

African American women have struggled to control when and how we have children for centuries. Access to birth control and abortion services are vital to our ability to have lives with dignity. Every African American woman who utilizes her full range of health care options, including abortion services, does so based on her own private circumstances and must always be able to do so with dignity and safety. We trust black women and recognize that each woman who chooses abortion does so, not because she is ill-informed or a dupe, but because she is making the best decision for herself and her family.
