The Patriot Post® · Pro-Abortion Lobby — The Real White Supremacists?
Prior to Roe v. Wade, the abortion rate among black women was lower than among white women. Fast forward to today and the percentages have flipped, with black mothers aborting their babies at 10 times the rate of all other racial groups. Similarly, before Roe v. Wade, blacks were more likely to oppose abortion than whites. But just a couple of years ago, the Pew Research Center found that 58% of whites and 62% of blacks think abortion should be legal in most or all cases.
An even more shocking number comes from New York City. The Wall Street Journal, citing the city’s health department report, notes that “between 2012 and 2016 black mothers terminated 136,426 pregnancies and gave birth to 118,127 babies. By contrast, births far surpassed abortions among whites, Asians and Hispanics.” In fact, black women, who make up just 13% of America’s female population account for 36% of all abortions nationwide.
The Henry J Kaiser Family Foundation provides a map that breaks down abortion statics by racial demographics and state. What is glaringly absent when looking at the map are the number of highly populated states for which there is little to no data, which makes the numbers that are presented that much worse due to the fact that they don’t represent the whole.
The truth is, in America we are living in the midst of a genocide — one that targets blacks more than any other racial group. The ironic part is this racial genocide is being promoted by their own activist leaders. Moreover, as Jason Hill, a philosophy professor at DePaul University, points out, groups like Black Lives Matter “want white people to esteem black lives and value the humanity of black people when they themselves can’t condemn and express moral outrage at those who maim and kill black children in the course of gang warfare, senseless street violence, and drive-by shootings.” He adds, “[The] moral hysteria raised by a few incidents of police brutality in the face of this larger national tragedy is reckless hyperbole … [and] hides from the nation a deep malaise at work in the psyche of some in the black community: a form of self-hatred that manifests itself in a homicidal rage not fundamentally against white people, but against other black people.”
On a final note, some 50 years before Roe v. Wade, atheist social activist and leftist icon Margaret Sanger founded the American Birth Control League, which later became Planned Parenthood, now the largest perpetrator of abortions in the U.S.
Sanger asserted that ministry to the poor, a fundamental tenet of Christianity, is responsible for excessive numbers of “unwanted” ethnic breeds. “Those vast, complex, interrelated organizations aiming to control and to diminish the spread of misery and destitution and all the menacing evils that spring out of this sinisterly fertile soil, are the surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding, and is perpetuating constantly increasing numbers of defectives, delinquents, and dependents. My criticism, therefore, is not directed at the failure of philanthropy, but rather at its success. These dangers are inherent in the very idea of humanitarianism and altruism, dangers which have today produced their full harvest of human waste.”
Of blacks, Sanger wrote, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” Today’s black abortion rates would no doubt meet her approval.
