The Most Dangerous Place for an African American Is in the Womb.
That statement should anger you because it is a sad truth. Recent events have called to your attention the importance and fragility of human life. It is right to take issue when a wrongful death occurs, and it is only fair to call to your attention the leading cause of wrongful deaths in our nation. This is an overlooked tragedy worthy of discussion.
African Americans are impacted by abortion at a much higher rate than any other population group.
In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released an Abortion Surveillance Report. According to that report, black women make up less than 14 percent of the childbearing population. Yet, 25 percent of all abortions were obtained by black women. This is the largest ratio of any group in the country, at a staggering ratio of 401 abortions per 1,000 live births.
The numbers indicate that of the over 62 million abortions since the 1973 Roe vs Wade Supreme Court ruling, 19 million black babies were aborted. African Americans are just over 13 percent of United States population, but more than 40 percent of them are killed before leaving the womb.
You don't have to look far to see that the abortion industry targets black people. White women are five times less likely to have an abortion than black women. An analysis of the 2010 census data shows that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of minority communities.
This is eugenics and it goes full-circle to Margaret Sanger. She advocated contraception and abortion as a means to diminish the black population. It breaks my heart that this has continued for so long.
According to the Guttmacher Institute, which generally supports abortion, 360,000 black babies were murdered via abortion in 2011. CDC statistics for that same year show that this number exceeds all other causes of black deaths. That is something to be mad about. By these numbers, abortion is the leading cause of death among the black community.
Abortion is not just a woman’s issue. It’s a human rights issue. With a bit more than 40 percent of all black pregnancies ending in induced abortion, this is a human crisis. It is premeditated murder, and alarm bells should be ringing.
Abortion is the number one killer of black lives in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, abortion kills more black people than HIV, homicide, diabetes, accident, cancer, and heart disease … combined.
The last CDC Abortion Surveillance report counts 623,471 abortions in 2016. That is 1,708 babies killed every single day in our country.
Black Lives Matter. Including the defenseless ones in the womb.
Our media paints a picture that police are hunting down the black population, when the evidence shows that is simply not true.
They would have you believe that police are engaging in an epidemic of shooting unarmed black men and women. You now hear it daily — but there is no such epidemic. For the last five years, the police have fatally shot about 1,000 civilians annually, the vast majority of whom were armed or otherwise dangerous.
In a perfect world, no officer would have to take another life during their duties. But given the number of arrests police make each year (around 10 million) and the number of deadly-weapons attacks on officers (an average of 27 per day), you are going to have a very tough time convincing anyone that this suggests that the law enforcement is out of control and should no longer exist.
Is it fair to argue that there is room for improving policing? Yes. Like any institution, there are bound to be some bad apples. Root them out. The Catholic Church recently found itself rooting out bad apples. It would be foolish to suggest that we should abolish the Church because some priests were found to do evil deeds. We don't call for the abolition of medicine when we hear of a bad doctor on the news. The vast majority of priests are good. The vast majority of doctors are good. In the same way, the large majority of police are good. These very vocations stem from a desire to serve other people. While the exceptions to these truths will see more news coverage, it is important that we don't allow our distaste for the bad apples to sour our perception of the whole.
A warped perspective is a danger to a democratic society.
Consider the number of fatal police shootings of civilians. At 1,000 cases per year, we have an average of 2.7 per day. How many of these were justified? Most were responding to violent criminal activity. It is reasonable to posit that 99 percent of these cases were just. Not all of these cases could be prevented. Now consider the 1,708 babies killed every single day in our country through abortion. How many of those were justified? Zero. How many of those cases could have been avoided? All of them.
How can an organization whose name is "Black Lives Matter" be for abortion and the dissolution of the nuclear family? It is blatant hypocrisy.
When Black Lives Matter, there should be protests at abortion clinics. Civil protests, not violence and destruction.
With all of that said, this is not to discredit the statement that "Black Lives Matter." Human life is precious. So I won't ever support an organization that expressly advertises the desire to destroy the nuclear family. I won't support an organization that supports abortion. I won't riot or terrorize the American people. It is fair to be disturbed when a wrongful death occurs. I will stand for those who cannot defend themselves and vote for those who will defend them. Consider whether or not you can face those killed through abortion and explain why you didn't You can't ignore that.
BABY LIVES MATTER. If you'd like to support the cause, here are some ways you can help:
Vote Pro-life. You have two tickets. The blue one supports atrocities such as late-term abortions and infanticide. The red one is the only sitting President to speak at the March For Life and has repeatedly defended the unborn
