One of the most socially acceptable forms of racism today is the attempt to eliminate ethnic groups or nationalities by way of abortion. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took part in this in April, 2017 when he donated $650 million of our tax dollars to pay for abortions in Africa. This will have the direct effect of eliminating African children.
In the US, nearly 20 million black babies have been aborted since the US Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade in 1973, which legalized abortion. Even though black women make up only 13% of the US female population, according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), 35.6% of abortions are performed on black women. On average, 900 black babies are aborted every day in the US. Planned Parenthood is responsible for many of these abortions, locating 70% of its abortion facilities within or near Black and Latino communities. It is an effective way to suppress the growth of these minority populations. Elective abortion remains the number one cause of death among Black Americans, higher than all other causes combined.
Planned Parenthood’s affinity to aborting blacks is being true to its roots, provided by its founder, Margaret Sanger. She was a racist and eugenicist who wanted to rid the world of “defective and feeble-minded minorities” and other so-called “breeders”. To do so, she targeted, among others, African-Americans. She founded the “black project” to encourage blacks to use birth control or become sterilized, and wrote that women should be required to obtain a “birth permit” from the government before giving birth. She wrote in 1939, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population”, which she referred to as “human weeds”.
Planned Parenthood Southeast President, Staci Fox, confirmed in September, 2017 that its customers are mainly poor women of colour who were about 15-29 years of age.
Not only do black American women have quadruple the abortion rate of non-black women, the black babies they deliver have a substantially higher risk of cerebral palsy (CP) than non-black children. It has been known for over 50 years that premature newborn babies have a higher risk of cerebral palsy than full-term, newborn babies. In 2008 a study was published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (Volume 13 No. 4), which confirmed this connection between premature births and cerebral palsy. This high rate of premature births is due to the women having had prior abortions. In 2007 The Institute of Medicine (part of the [U.S.] National Academy of Sciences) identified 17 “Immutable Medical Risk Factors Associated with Preterm Birth” with the third listed ‘preemie’ risk being: “Prior first trimester induced abortion”.
There are over 145 significant published studies finding that women with prior induced abortions have a raised risk of delivering babies that are either premature (under 37 weeks’ gestation) or Low Birth Weight (under 5 lbs. 8 ounces, i.e., under 1,500 grams). Over 55 of these studies were published since the year 2000.
Where are the voices of concern over this devastating fact? Why does Black Lives Matter worry about police violence when the real violence takes place on black women and other minorities in abortion clinics and hospitals? The abortion industry obviously doesn’t care about the elimination of black lives since every abortion means money in its pocket. After all, that’s why the industry exists.
