CNS News reports that, “Abortion kills more black Americans than the seven leading causes of death combined, according to data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for 2005, the latest year for which the abortion numbers are available.”
And so, the spirit of Margaret Sanger lives on in Planned Parenthood.
Sanger, an ardent eugenicist and founder of Planned Parenthood, spoke and wrote of her desire to get rid of such “undesirable” groups as “Negroes” through the method of sterilization and widespread birth control. At one point in her sordid career she even addressed the women’s auxillary of the Ku Klux Klan.
Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, and pro-life advocate, couldn’t be more right when she points out that “abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of.”
Those arguing for abortion often demand that it’s African Americans who would suffer the most by being denied the “right” to abortion.
I can and will never consider the decimation of a race of people to be a “right.” Nor will I ever consider babies as punishment.
And I hope the reality of the number of African Americans dying each day (1,784) by abortion will jerk some pro-choicers out of their politically correct stupor and help them to realize there is nothing politically correct or civilized about genocide.
Thanks for this post–it’s so important!
you’re an idiot… Plan Parenthood is an organization that is beneficial to women and helping women of every race. We need the right to choose what to do with our bodies and how we live our lives. Not every women is fortunate enough to be able to sit at home and blog about their life as a mother/wife/ sister etc etc, while their husbands take care of their expenses and responsibilities. You disgust me. And you don’t know the meaning of being a christian if you can’t understand that everyone doesn’t have it as easy as you and may have to make hard decisions, like choosing an abortion, because of financial or support reasons. God understands. You have no idea.
As black women, we need to realize that sex isn’t the end all be all and that there are ways to pleasure ourselves on our own and self-empowerment means controlling our bodies and not allowing thugs to use us and throw us away.
We, all women need to find a better quality of man rather than opening our legs up to every Tom, Tyrone and Harry.
Black women suffer from some of the highest rates of STD infections including herpes and AIDS.
Enough is enough. Let’s take care of our bodies and treat them like the beautiful, sexy, fun vessels they are by respecting them and protecting them and staying healthy and WAITING for Mister Right instead of hopping on Mister RIGHT NOW.
God bless our sisters struggling right now. Black women don’t have many black men to choose from. It’s a struggle but, we can do it.
