The Democrat Party: Not Enough African-Americans Aborted

Many Americans heard the cheers of pro-abortion New York Democrats after they passed the extreme abortion bill, the Reproductive Health Act. Now the state’s laws mirror those of China and North Korea. Abortion is legal in New York for any reason and throughout the entire pregnancy. If someone kills a mother’s “wanted” unborn child in a homicidal act other than “legal abortion,” there’s no criminal statute to prosecute the attacker. New York Dems have gleefully deemed a group of human beings as ‘non-persons’.

Hmmmmm, where have we seen this before?

It’s Black History Month, and we’ve still not learned from history. Slavery. Jim Crow. KKK. Lynching. Poll Taxes. Literacy Tests. And now, Limitless Abortion. How many times does the Democrat Party need to be wrong? How many millions need to be killed, harmed and exploited for Americans—of any hue—to wake up and see abortion for what it is: systemic racism and elitism. 

"Lack of Access" by The Radiance FoundationFor the past two decades in New York, more black babies have been aborted than born alive. In 2014 (the latest year for Guttmacher’s national abortion stats) for every 1,000 black babies born alive, there were 1,101 aborted. But you know, lack of access. In 2016, that number dropped slightly to 994 black babies aborted for every 1,000 born alive. For pro-abortion Dems, not enough are aborted.

By the way, Planned Parenthood, trotting out black spokespeople for its billion-dollar abortion chain doesn’t change its racist DNA any more than hiring female lawyers changes Harvey Weinstein’s nature. 

Over the past 10 years in New York, overall abortion totals declined from 121,278 in 2006 to 82,189 in 2016 (the latest year reported). In a state that has 218 abortion-committing facilities and taxpayer-funded abortions, who exactly is “lacking access” to abortion? Only 15.6 percent of those having abortions in the Empire State pay out of pocket, according to the New York Department of Health. The rest are paid through insurance or Medicaid. In fact, 51 percent (or 28,893) of New York City’s nearly 56,607 abortions in 2016 were paid for by taxpayers through Medicaid. “Pro-choice” has morphed into government-mandated participation in the killing of innocent human lives in a Gosnell-style abortion utopia where no one is accountable, violence brings “equality” and women’s health is put in jeopardy. Gosnell is all giddy in his jail cell. His House of Horrors was not a morbid lesson to be learned, apparently, but a model to repeat.

Despite declining abortion numbers, abortion defenders seem hell-bent on increasing them. It’s like tobacco companies claiming they’re preventing cancer deaths by expanding access to cigarettes. But pro-abortion “progressives” turn their eugenic agenda into “concern” for the poor—the very ones they don’t think should exist because no one should be a “burden” to anyone. Poor people need abortion, they say. You know, because having abortion ratios that are five times higher (black women) and two times higher (Hispanic women) than the majority population, respectively, just isn’t enough.

Poverty and lack of insurance are always used by pro-abortion apologists to explain higher abortion rates in the black community. Yet the NYC Mayor’s Office for Economic Opportunity reports that Asians and Hispanics have higher poverty rates (24.1 percent and 23.9 percent) than the black community (19.2 percent) in NYC. And, as abortion has declined in NYC, so has poverty for every demographic. 

What about the uninsured? In 2016 Hispanics were uninsured at 11.9 percent, Asians at 8.9 percent, blacks at seven percent and whites at 4.2 percent. Yet abortion rates were five times higher in the black community than Asians, four times higher than whites, and nearly twice as high as Hispanics. 

Voting rights and anti-poverty activist, Fannie Lou Hamer, denounced abortion as black genocide. She was an adoptive mama and a prolife Democrat who decried the racial targeting.

Planned Parenthood is still operating in its unchanged DNA, fashioned in the vile pseudoscience of eugenics. The billion-dollar abortion chain continually and disproportionately targets the black community, tweeting garbage like this: “If you’re a Black woman in America, it’s statistically safer to have an abortion than to carry a pregnancy to term or to give birth. #ScaryStats.” (This “abortion is safer than childbirth” rhetoric is debunked herehere, and here). 

What if President Trump had tweeted this? What do you think the reaction would’ve been? Complete. SJW. Meltdown. But Planned Parenthood tweets this racist pseudoscience, and they’re heralded as “standing with [pro-abortion] black women.”

In my home state of Virginia, abortion activism has gotten so extreme, mainstream Democrats don’t even filter their words any more. Governor Ralph Northam bizarrely announced his support for allowing a child born alive with fetal “abnormalities” to be left to die, if the mother and her doctor [abortionist who profits when the child is killed] agreed. He wasn’t even talking about a botched abortion. As someone who has several disabled siblings who had “fetal abnormalities” in utero, I shudder at the same ‘racial hygiene theory’ espoused by NAZIs freely flowing from pro-abortion Democrats’ mouths. The truly disabled are those who think killing the most powerless, the most marginalized and the most defenseless is something to celebrate. 

So, this Black History Month, take a moment and think of the millions that won’t be celebrated. Think about the countless stories of struggle and triumph that will never be told because the womb to abortion pipeline is praised and defended by those who claim to fight for “equality.” There is no situation, today, more emblematic of civil rights gone wrong than in the former Party of Slavery now proudly proclaiming its status of being the Party of Limitless Abortion. As someone who was once considered “black and unwanted” but adopted and loved instead, I pray that many in the black community will awaken and understand the difference between being empowered and being fooled by those in power. Until then, the Democrat Party will keep pushing the horrific violence of abortion and making millions of blacks, history.

  1. Bravo, Ryan! I’m hoping and praying that good will come out of all this horror we’ve been witnessing – i.e., that people will finally wake up and realize that the Democrat party is the real party of racism, eugenics, and death.

    Governor Northam, Pharaoh, and the Incredible Patience of God

    by Jordan Standridge

    By now, I’m sure you’ve heard Virginia Governor Northam’s evil statement encouraging infanticide. While they are disturbing to hear, these kinds of statements are shared by many in our country. Recently, the state of New York cheered the passing of a similar bill with applause.

    It wasn’t too long ago that a friend was preaching from Exodus chapter 1, and it really struck me just how patient God was with Egypt.

    From time to time while evangelizing, I get approached by an angry atheist, and it is fascinating to see them grasp at straws to explain away their hate for God. One of their most common accusations is to call God a genocidal maniac. In fact, the story of the angel of God killing all the firstborn men of Egypt tops the list as far as most mentioned examples of God’s genocidal tendencies. But, is it really so?

    Exodus 1 is fascinating. Egypt is committing copious amounts of unconscionable evils that would make American history blush. They are enslaving thousands of people and making them work. Then, out of fear of their slaves fighting back, they are taking their children between the ages of 0-2 and drowning them in the Nile. They are outrageously evil. And while Pharaoh is making these decisions, the Egyptian people are sitting by and watching, perhaps even encouraging and praising their evil dictator. But perhaps the most shocking thing about this story is the fact that God waits 40 years before responding!

    Have you ever considered that?

    God is extraordinarily patient. You and I would kill every Egyptian within seconds, and yet God waits forty years before even sending Moses!

    And He doesn’t stop there!

    He sends Moses to confront Pharaoh. And He gives him the opportunity to simply let the Israelite people—he has enslaved, tortured, and kept against their will for dozens of years—go scot free, no questions asked, without any repercussions. While He should have avenged the murder of hundreds, if not thousands, of babies, He simply sends Moses to request freedom. And yet, Pharaoh, blinded by his great wickedness, rejects the offer.

    Then God sends the first plague. Then the second. And so forth. Giving Pharaoh ten opportunities to repent of his immoral ways. Can you believe how patient God is? 40 years! 10 opportunities!

    God, of course, doesn’t need me to defend Him, He can do as He pleases whenever He wants. But it is shocking just how patient He is with the world.

    Dear Christian, do you see God’s absolute patience with people? Sometimes when an unbeliever questions the God of the Bible we can feel uneasy, or we are unable to answer such questions. But it is imperative that you realize that God not only isn’t evil in punishing sin but rather He is perfectly just and shockingly patient in His timing and practice.

    Governor Northam should have been instantly killed upon what he said, and yet God will let him live on, perhaps for years, and even remain governor for a time until someone else will take his place. Those people cheering in New York should have been destroyed the second they began clapping, but God showed great mercy to them and will patiently await judgment day.

    But we need to be careful. We can’t just be angry for the sake of being angry. We must be able to think biblically about this. It is incredibly easy to be angry, but that will not make a speck of difference in eternity.

    We must always remember that we don’t deserve to live either.

    If you sinned yesterday you should have been killed. The fact that God let us wake up this morning and allows us to eat, move, or breathe is an incredible mercy. The fact that He will allow us to live with Him for eternity, on top of that, is what should truly shock us. Being outraged over infanticide is a good sign that you have a moral compass, but it is important that we remember that the sin we should hate the most is our own.

    We must always remember that evangelism is the greatest response a Christian can have.

    Indignation and sadness are proper responses. A desire to vote and to convince people not to harm children is an appropriate response to this madness. But the greatest response will always be sharing the Gospel. There are plenty of men and women in Hell who have never or would have never, ever aborted a baby during their lifetime, and yet they will spend eternity in Hell and deserve every second of it. While we should vote and plead with people not to murder, we must always remember that the proper response to things like these is to walk up to people and tell them about the incredibly patient God who has allowed them to live one more day and hear the Gospel, and then share the Gospel with them!

    God will take care of everything on judgment day. God will bring perfect justice on the world and will right every wrong. It isn’t our job to mock, insult, or harm those who commit evil. Our only weapon is the Word of God and our only message is that Jesus saves. Be outraged, but let that outrage quickly turn into compassion remembering that if it weren’t for the Gospel, you’d be capable of much greater evil. Share the Gospel with the world around you!
