Abortion is Racism

ABORTION IS EPIDEMIC – New York commits the second highest number of abortions in the nation (California being first killing over 214,000 children by abortion every year). Over 100,000 New Yorkers are aborted every year (102,678 in the latest year reported), There is no doubt that it has reached epidemic proportions, one of the largest causes for ending lives in the United States but did you know one of the driving force behind abortion is racism?

Let me share some facts with you…

In NY City, more black babies are aborted than are born alive! You heard me right; more than ½ of all black babies in NYC are killed prior to birth. The NY State Department of Health reports[1] that in 2011 (latest year for available NYC stats) for every 1,000 black babies born alive, 1,223 are aborted. In fact black babies are aborted at ratios up to five times that of the majority population!

You may think, “That’s awful but is it really racially motivated?”

Margaret Sanger is the founder of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. Margaret was a racist elitist who believed that birth control was “nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defective” (quote from Chapter 18 of Margaret Sanger’s “Women and the New Race”).

Margaret was a Eugenist. Eugenics is the belief and practice of improving the genetic quality of the human population.It is a social philosophy advocating the improvement of human genetic traits through the promotion of higher reproduction of people with desired traits (positive eugenics), and reduced reproduction of people with less-desired or undesired traits (negative eugenics). Sound familiar? Hitler and the Arian Supremacist believed in selective breeding as the next phase of evolution to insure a pure white race. These beliefs were greatly influenced in the Eugenics Movement of the 1920s.

In the 2nd International Eugenics Conference, Eugenics was identified as the “Self Direction of Human Evolution”. This belief system drove Margaret Sanger to found Planned Parenthood to help control the population of those undesirable races. She wanted to eliminate the racial elements that were a hindrance to the breeding of a ‘race of thoroughbreds’. 3“Pivot of Civilization”, Margaret Sanger, 1922

That is why all the early branches of Planned Parenthood were in low-income housing areas that were predominately African Americans…so that the “undesirables” that these racists were trying to eliminate would have easy access to kill their unborn and sometimes newly born, babies.

Today, Margaret Sanger would be thrilled to know their secret agenda to eliminate the races she called undesirable was working. She wanted abortion to control the population of those deemed “less evolved” by the white supremacist of the Eugenics Movement. In New York City where more black babies are killed than are born, that satanic agenda seems to be working.

Planned Parenthood: half a billion dollars a year of your tax money given each year to fund the racist murdering of unborn, black, babies.

I thought you should know how racist abortion is.

Breaking Religious Taboos

Did you know that Jesus didn’t follow all the religious rules of His day? His methods weren’t welcomed in the established places of worship.  He hung out with the wrong crowd.  He overcame social and cultural barriers to reach people.  Jesus had to break many religions taboos to make a way to the Father for all of us.

In John 4:1-30, there is a story of the brief interaction between Jesus and a Samaritan Woman at the town well.

Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.”  He was alone at the time because His disciples had gone into the village to buy some food. The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. (v7-9)

Samaria was conquered Assyria 722 BC. The Samaritans intermarried with the foreigners. Therefore they were not regarded as fully Jewish. At the time of Jesus there was a lot of hatred between them. Jesus’ dealings with this woman illustrates His ministry breaking down barriers between Jews and Samaritans.

Jesus broke several taboos with this meeting.  He broke the racial prejudice that Jews had against Samaritans.  He broke the religious bias towards the Samaritans as being inferior Jews or ‘unclean’.  Last Jesus tackled the chauvinist view of women that was prominent in His culture.  Jesus often broke taboo as to how women should be treated.

Mary Magdalene; Joanna, the wife Herod’s business manager; Susanna; and other women traveled with Jesus contributing their own resources to support Him and His disciples. (Luke 8:1-3) This was scandalous for a woman to leave her homes and travel with a rabbi.  Unheard of!  Unthinkable!  Yet Jesus had several woman travel with Him throughout His ministry time.  In the orthodox, first century temples women and men were separated by a screen.  Jesus was one of the world’s first feminists treating woman as ‘joint-heirs’ of salvation.

Why is this important to us today?  Because to truly follow Jesus we must break down the social, cultural and even religious taboos we have been taught.  These things keep people from following God.  More next blog.
