Black Lives Don’t Seem to Matter in NYC

I was so shocked to read a report by the New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene saying that more black babies were aborted than were born in New York City in 2012!

The report said that 31,328 black babies were aborted in NYC and only 24,758 were born.  That means 6,500 more babies were aborted than were born.  That is insane!

As a black woman who was born and raised in NYC, I am appalled at what is happening in my hometown!

But should we really be that surprised that this is where abortion-on-demand has taken us? Is it really that shocking that the lies spread about abortion by Planned Parenthood and big abortion business result in all of this?

As The Federalist reports, the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was openly racist and a huge advocate of eugenics.

Margaret Sanger, for those who are unaware, was a vile racist and eugenicist who dedicated her life to ridding the world of poor black babies, who she deemed the “degenerate and defective.” She was a featured guest of the Ku Klux Klan and a huge proponent of the forced sterilization program of the Nazi regime in the 1930’s. Sanger pushed for birth control not because she believed it liberated women from the burdens of motherhood, but because she saw it as the best way to get minorities and the handicapped, whom she detested, to voluntarily stop breeding.

And just five years ago in an interview with The New York Times, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg shockingly stated, “Frankly I had thought that at the 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.”

Populations that we don’t want to have too many of? Are we serious here? Is this really happening?

Unfortunately, it is. It’s time for us to stand up and speak truth to power.

Black lives do matter.  And that includes the lives of black unborn children.  If we don’t speak up for them, who will?
