Abortion is Racist

Did I just “go there”? Yes, I did. Abortion, by the numbers, is a racist institution. This statement has nothing to do with agendas or intent. It has everything to do with the simple, undeniable reality that in the US, abortion kills minority children at more than 3 times the rate of white children. According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute (IPPF’s research wing), the rate is even worse for black children who are 5 times more likely die of abortion! This fact alone is staggering!
 This phenomenon of "black genocide” by abortionists and its necessary exposure is what drives activists such as Alveda C. King, niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. who quotes her uncle often when outlining her opposition of abortion:
[Martin Luther King, Jr.] once said, “The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety.” How can the “Dream” survive if we murder our children? Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother. The mother decides his or her fate.
Lest you feel these claims are an exaggeration, consider the numbers: Black women make up only 12.3% of the population but account for 37% of abortions (almost 2 in 5). White women make up two thirds of the population and account for one third of the abortions. 80% of Planned Parenthood's abortion clinics are located in poorer communities with minority populations. The result of this is that the abortion of Hispanic and Black babies is more than double their population percentage. Call this what you will-when the slaughter has an ethnic face and the percentages are double that of the white community and the killers are almost all white, something is going on here that ought to make the lovers of racial equality and racial harmony wake up. It is no secret that Planned Parenthood was founded in racist eugenics-“the science of improving the population by controlled breeding for desirable inherited characteristics”- which is continued by the organisation today. So did Apartheid, the slave plantations, and Nazis to name a few. All evil, all perfectly legal at the time.
The Life Education and Resource Network (LEARN), the largest black pro-life group in the US has produced the above chart which shows that from 1973-2001, abortion has claimed more than 2.5 times as many black lives as the next 5 leading causes of death combined. Since 1973, about 16 million black babies were aborted, which means that the black community would be 36% larger than it is. And that doesn't even factor in all the children that would have been born to those aborted a generation ago. Abortion is by no means an equal opportunity killer. Abortion attacks the "moral fabric" of an entire people. What happens to the mind of a person, and the social fabric of a nation, that accepts the aborting of the life of a baby without a pang of conscience? What kind of a person, and what kind of a society will we have in Swaziland in 20 years if life continues to be taken casually by abusing and murdering our children, and aborting or dumping our babies into pit latrines? The value placed on life must be preserved if we wish to have any future as a Swazi nation. With a tiny population just over a million, we must welcome and rejoice over every Swazi baby conceived, regardless of the circumstances. Every Swazi mother should be treated as a princess because she bears the nation’s children and grandchildren. We must learn from America’s shocking disgusting track record, and refuse to allow such a racist procedure in our borders.
