Abortions are the number one killer of African-Americans. Many young Black teens resort to abortions because the pregnancy is unplanned, and they are not mature enough to care for a child. Others are in fear of their parents and may have abortions without their parents’ knowledge. Many young Black women who are unmarried are generally not financially prepared; the biological father is typically absent from their child’s life. Patients between the ages of 20 and 24 obtained 34 percent of all abortions. Women ages 25 to 29 obtained 27 percent.
In 2014, whites accounted for 39 percent of abortion procedures while blacks accounted for 28 percent of them in the U.S. In 2016, white mothers accounted for 37 percent of abortions while being 77 percent of the U.S. population. By contrast, black women only comprise 6 percent of the U.S. population, but they account for 35 percent of abortions, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC). About 1.3 percent of these reported abortions had a gestation period beyond 20 weeks. What is the reason for this?
On October 26, 1916, Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, opens the first birth control clinic in the poverty-stricken section of Brownsville in Brooklyn, NY. The notion was to help control the problem of over breeding. Sanger’s childhood is said to have been unhappy. Her father was an unstable alcoholic with radical political views. Sanger was a poor student and did not take working seriously. It is believed that her short, unhappy career in teaching children of immigrants led to her embracing eugenics. She became passionate about “Marxism, anarchism, free love, secular humanism, and Darwinism”.
On May 2, 1927, the United States Supreme Court case, Buck vs. Bell, gave states the right to forced sterilizations for those that they deemed genetically unfit. Elaine Riddick was a victim of this type of eugenics. At the age of 14, she was raped by a man in her neighborhood and became pregnant. Upon giving birth to her son in 1968 in North Carolina, a doctor cut her Fallopian tubes. Because her grandmother was illiterate, she unknowingly consented to the procedure. Forty-four year later, the state of North Carolina wanted to compensate Riddick and other victims $50,000 in damages. That angered her even more.
In 1939, Margaret Sanger began to discourage the population growth of African-Americans, particularly those that are poor. In short, to discourage “the defective and diseased elements of humanity” from their “reckless and irresponsible swarming and spawning”. Sanger knew that so-called African Americans primarily were a religious group of people. She used this and prominent African Americans to help her cause.
How did she put this plan into action? She wrote a letter to Dr. W.E.B. Dubois, a prominent sociologist and author. Sanger’s “claim” was that birth control was the solution to prejudice and discrimination in the Black community. If births were more spaced out, families could recover financially and physically. (The mother’s body needs to heal from childbirth and each child is expensive to care for). Diseases would decrease, and healthier babies would result.
Opponents of this believed that abortion was immoral and the population needed to increase for an equal distribution of wealth. However, more people believed Sanger’s deception that birth control would improve conditions in the black community. Black churches even invited her to speak to their congregations! It wasn’t because they were gullible; Sanger was very crafty at hiding her true agenda. Sanger also wrote about her meeting with the women of the Ku Klux Klan in her autobiography.
In spite of this, Planned Parenthood still honors Margaret Sanger to this day. Hillary Rodham Clinton, former senator, first-lady, presidential candidate, and recipient of the Margaret Sanger award in 2009, expresses her great admiration for her and her vision. In 2014, former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, accepted that award with the same gratitude.
The rabbit hole goes deeper. Planned Parenthood harvests baby parts and sells them to human organ buyers. PepsiCo is said to have used aborted fetal cells in its products. Kraft, Nestle, and other companies are using aborted baby fetuses as flavor additives. African-Americans are very valuable in this way. You can decrease the population and make money from our body parts. In addition, there is DNA in those aborted fetuses. Scientists can use that information to create new diseases to exterminate African Americans. There is a claim that scientists created Ebola for this purpose.
In spite of the attempts made to exterminate so-called African-Americans, we are still here. On a personal note, I haven’t experienced an abortion, but I have experienced the loss of a child. Many of us have awakened to our true heritage (Deut. 28:15-68), and we understand the importance of family and following the Most High. Before Margaret Sanger, there weren’t abortions. We weren’t sterilized on the assumption that we were genetically unfit for reproduction. A woman gave birth as long as her body produced eggs. Whether we have been blessed with many children or only one, we need to cherish them. Shalom!
