Black lives matter, especially those in the womb
“Cowardice asks the question, is it safe?; expediency asks the question, is it politic?; vanity asks the question, is it popular?; but conscience asks the question, is it right?”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
Black History Month passed, and we’ve still not learned from history. How many millions need to be killed and exploited before Americans wake up and see abortion for what it is: justifiable homicide against the innocent and defenseless that is a growing epidemic in our liberal black communities?
While abortion numbers have been declining in America for the last two decades, African-American women now have five times more abortions than white women.
This is not happenstance. Planned Parenthood’s founder, eugenicist Margaret Sanger, believed in hereditary improvement of the races through controlled selective breeding.
It is no coincidence 79 percent of Planned Parenthood’s abortion facilities are within walking distance of ethnic neighborhoods. This is a fact that is being ignored by leftist politicians who claim they are the party that’s doing what is best for African-American voters. And they are black America's only choice to protect their rights: all except their sacred right to life.
Planned Parenthood is by far the nation’s largest abortion provider. Planned Parenthood has killed over 7.6 million babies since 1973 when it legally began performing abortions when the court ruled 7–2 in favor of Roe. That’s not even taking into account the number of babies aborted by Planned Parenthood illegally, before Roe v. Wade.
According to their latest annual report, the group administered 328,348 abortions. And in its financial report, the year before 323,999 fetuses were aborted. And there is no slowing them down.
Although recent data from the Centers for Disease Control shows the U.S. abortion rate is at a historic low, Planned Parenthood’s abortion market share has grown nationally. And their rate of abortions on demand in black communities is at an all-time high.
The entire nation was shocked when the Center for Medical Progress released a video that shows a Planned Parenthood executive telling two undercover pro-life activists they sell body parts from aborted babies.
Two of Planned Parenthood’s business partners admitted they violated federal and state laws harvesting aborted organs from Planned Parenthood. They paid a wimpy $8 million fine and Planned Parenthood didn’t even get spanked.
As the Pro-lifers squealed from across America, there wasn’t a whimper about the rapid increase in abortions in black communities!
“If this doesn’t shock the nation’s conscience, what will?”
– Dr. Russell Moore, Southern Baptist Convention
While anti-abortion activists have attempted to link abortion to racism for decades, the argument that abortion poses a unique threat to black lives is real and has recently gained credible national attention.
Full-term abortion laws passed in places like New York, where more black babies are now being aborted legally than are “being born.” Newly released data show that black abortion clinics are “equal opportunity aborters”.
At every income level, black women have higher abortion rates than whites. And Despite declining abortion rates, Planned Parenthood is hell-bent on increasing them.
“For most women, abortion is safer than childbirth.”
– Jenna Woldez, Planned Parenthood
President Dennis Howard, of the Movement for a Better America, has come up with some alarming data on U.S. abortion demographics.
Estimates based on recent data reveal the current cumulative number of black babies aborted between 1967 and 2018 is an estimated 20,350,000 future Americans. With a total current black American population about 42,000,000 today, the 20,350,000 Black American abortions are equal to 48 percent of the total black population. If not for abortion, the black American population would be approximately 62,350,000, or 48 percent greater than today.
The total fertility rate for African-Americans is 1.5, which is far below the replacement level fertility rate of 2.1, which is necessary for a generation to replenish itself. Abortion is undeniably the biggest single negative force on the continued growth of our U.S. Black American population.
“If Black lives matter, then the life of the human being inside the womb matters, too.”
– Walter Hoye
When we look at the national increase in abortions in African-American communities, the gaps in wealth, education, incarceration and employment under the Democrats, why does Black America continue to support the Democratic Party?
Anyone who thinks they care about promoting black self reliance and population growth must also believe that Lyndon Johnson was not a racist.
When the segregationist LBJ signed the 1964 Civil Right Act and the 1964 Voting Rights Act, he cemented a political alliance between African Americans and the Democratic Party that continues to this day.
“Let’s face it. Our ass is in a crack. We’re gonna have to let this ni**** bill pass.”
– Lyndon Johnson
But celebrating these landmark pieces of legislation overlooks what blacks lost when their rights and equality were hitched to the Democratic Party.

Although these bills helped improve the lives of many black citizens, it also enabled the Democratic Party to control their future.
Democrats knew they had lost the battle to end segregation so they did the next best thing: They gained the power to control the disconnected. Keeping the black American community under their thumb by making them dependents rather than independent, they have been able to keep this group smaller and less powerful. This is reflected in their pro-abortion stand and their silence on the black-abortion plague.
Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, recently articulated, “We need no more tabloid leaders.” In a recent interview with Fox News, she told reporters: “The economy’s up. Jobs are up in the black community and there’s great promise to get many who have been unfairly incarcerated out of jail.”
King continued, “The Trump presidency has been good for Black America because their unemployment rate fell to the lowest rate on record last month.” She claimed numbers prove this president is working for all America, period. And African Americans are benefiting more than ever.
“The president is giving the African-American community the kind of help they want.”
– Alveda King
If we reflect on the recent Black History Month, we must consider how many God-Fearing black citizens were not able to celebrate.
Since our liberal abortion laws continue to be supported by the left and Planned Parenthood, and they target minority neighborhoods, how can countless young black Americans buy into progressive politics?
How can the abortion pipeline be defended by the very political leaders who claim to fight for “equality”; with no end in sight?
The answer is easy, but the solution is not. The center right must rethink the message they send to African Americans. Until they admit black voters have the same values and goals as whites do, and they are willing to work for them also, they will leave black America left holding the bag.
“All lives matter to the right!” Yet too few take a stand against the horrors of genocide taking place in black communities perpetrated by Planned Parenthood.
Until ranking members of the GOP take a stand on Planned Parenthood’s expansive growth, like they did recently in Tennessee, inordinate numbers of future black Americans will lay victim to the abortionist’s knife. A vote is more than a vote, it is a life.
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.
“No Black lives matter more than those lives trapped helplessly in the womb.”
– Solomon Jones
