I don't expect that this will be a very popular thread, I even doubt many will read the attached article -- but it covers some things that need to be said.
Yesterday was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and today is the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. Two items you wouldn't think would go together -- however they do.
I've not been shy about expressing my thoughts about abortion. I think it's legalized murder.
Abortion is much more prevalent in the African-American community.
Much was said yesterday at the Inauguration of the rights of minorities and gays -- Obama even talked about the horrible deaths of the 20 young children last month -- but no mention of the 3,200 who are killed on an average day in the US by mothers making the barbaric decision to end a beating heart.A decade ago Childress founded a website by and for African Americans (blackgenocide.org) “to expose the disproportionate amount of Black babies destroyed by the abortion industry. For every two African American women that get pregnant, one will choose to abort.”
The site laments that “a Black baby is 5 times more likely to be killed in the womb than a White Baby.” Childress says, “The most dangerous place for an African American to be is in the womb of their African American mother.”
MLK's niece, Dr. Alveda C. King said this . . .
If anything guys, I want you to think about the rights of the unborn. They deserve rights and the respect of everyone also. To treat the unborn like a disease or a cold does not make sense in a civilized society.[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 the children? Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother. . . . If the Dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is to live, our babies must live. Our mothers must choose life. If we refuse to answer the cry of mercy from the unborn, and ignore the suffering of the mothers, then we are signing our own death warrants.
As a gay/bisexual man you should understand the need for the unborn to have basic human rights.
As the article points out abortion is black genocide. Is it too much to ask you to think about the ramifications of abortion.
