January is National Sanctity of Human Life Month and that means a dedicated focus on life ethics, facts and laws, such as Roe v. Wade.
As Ronald Reagan once said, “Simple morality dictates that unless and until someone can prove the unborn human is not alive, we must give it the benefit of the doubt and assume it is alive. And thus, it should be entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” He also said, “An unborn child’s property rights are protected, but not his life!” Unfortunately, for minorities this is even more so the truth.
Many don’t want to, or won’t, believe that Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a racist, and that today the largest marketer of abortion, Planned Parenthood, targets minority neighborhoods, but the statistics are staggering clear.
As Rev. Clenard Childress, Founder of BlackGenocide.org, points out, “The most dangerous place for an African American to be is in the womb of their African American mother.” Some will very likely take offense at that statement, but let’s take a look at just a few of the hard facts:
National Review Online reported, “Sadly, black women were also more likely to obtain riskier abortions late in their pregnancies, while white women were significantly more likely than black women to obtain abortions before 16 weeks.”
Fox News reported, “Since 1973, the year of Roe v. Wade, the share of abortions among black women has consistently been at least twice their share of live births.”
I had the privilege of interviewing Rev. Childress on my radio show, and he pointed out that, “Seventy-eight percent of all Planned Parenthood’s clinics are located in minoritiy neighborhoods.”
I also had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Alveda King, niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, the country’s largest Catholic pro-life organization. She said her uncle was against infanticide and on the side of the unborn, pointing out that the column he wrote for Ebony Magazine prove that he was pro-life.
Dr. Alveda King pointed out that her uncle did receive an award from Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood, but that it was a tactic they used to get ‘the church’ on their side, saying that PP was on the side of wanting to help African Americans. (You can hear her full statement online in our broadcast archives dated 1/17/11). In fact, Margaret Sanger, who was a known eugenist, also had a Negro project, directed at the ‘undesirables.’”
And Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who favors of Roe v. Wade, in July of 2009, stated boldly, “Frankly I had thought that at that time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”
The film, Maafa 21 Black Genocide in the 21st Century points out even more staggering facts. Slavery, one of the darkest moments in U.S. history, is unthinkable in America today, but as this film points out, blacks continue to be seen as ‘undesirables’ by the abortion industry.
Let’s face it, whether through slavery or abortion (not to mention discrimination for which Dr. King is remembered this month), African Americans have suffered greatly in our nation. Both the acts and attitudes are unthinkable, and I don’t care who endorses them, be they former slave owners, or a President of the United States, who supports Planned Parenthood, the unthinkable is never a solution. Not the stealing of life through slavery. Not the mistreatment of life through discrimination. Not the taking of life through abortion.
