“Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born.”
Forty-one years ago today, the world’s most destructive inhumanity was born. The number one killer of African-Americans today is not HIV, not diabetes, not homicides– the number one killer of African-Americans today is abortion.
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, was founded by a woman hailed by many as a “hero” yet openly advocated the elimination of an entire race. Sanger often referred to people that “never should have been born” and talked about birth control as a method to “create a race of thoroughbreds.” The group Black Genocide outlined Sanger’s feelings toward blacks and her plans and methods of action to perform a genocide of the entire race; according to her, blacks constituted little more than a “breed” of “unfit” people, none of who should reproduce. The development of the birth control pill was just one of her schemes to cause total elimination.
Since January 22nd, 1973, almost 56 million abortions have taken place within the United States. 56 million babies that were never given a first breath, a first cry, or a first smile. 56 million people that could have changed the world for the better will never even see that world in the flesh. With more than 1 million abortions occurring annually, approximately 3,288 abortions occur each day; approximately 137 occur each hour; and approximately 2 occur each minute. The number of groups tragically affected by this is nearly endless– 90% of unborn babies diagnosed with Down’s Syndrome are aborted, and baby girls are being singled out as unworthy of life and aborted– and perhaps one of the most shockingly devastated groups is African-American babies.
Abortion is the most dangerous threat posed to blacks today. It is the number one killer; deaths from HIV, homicides, diabetes, accidents, cancer, and heart disease combined still do not add up to the total number of African-American deaths from abortion each year. A desire to eliminate blacks was at the heart of Margaret Sanger’s “women’s rights” efforts when she helped coin the birth control pill and founded Planned Parenthood: Sanger called blacks “human weeds,” “reckless breeders,” and “spawning human beings who never should have been born.” Today, her vision is being carried on by the organization she founded, with 79% of Planned Parenthood clinics located in minority neighborhoods and employees willingly accepting donations to be used specifically in aborting an African-American baby. These actions continue to devastate the unborn: for every 1,000 black babies born alive in New York, 1,223 are aborted.
In the midst of these horrifying statistics, however, there is hope. Today’s young people are the most pro-life generation in recent history, and the trend doesn’t appear to be slowing down in the near future. The pro-life movement continues to see victories, and the cause of Margaret Sanger and other early supporters of Planned Parenthood are being snuffed and outshone by the enormous light coming from those who recognize the sanctity of life. Organizations like Hope Women’s Center are showing women options other than aborting an unwanted child. Support these courageous leaders and continue to take a stand for life– let no child be left behind.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute. – Proverbs 31:8
