In the past year, 136 young Black men have been killed in confrontations with police. This loss of life occurring in black neighborhoods has risen to the level of a national emergency with radical left politicians stoking the flames of anger and outrage that resulted in a number of protest marches, civil unrest and assassination-style killings of police officers.
The hypocrisy of the left is revealed by the fact that politicians — especially Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her war-on-women cohorts — and activists cheer the rampant extermination of unborn babies in minority communities coast-to-coast. Yet, these same people will become emotional at the report of a police officer killing a suspect even before they know the whole story.
“Part of Clinton’s presidential campaign strategy is to throw cops under the Democratic Party’s bus while vilifying anyone who dares to even question the legality or the unrestricted availability of abortion. It’s just more proof of the Democrats’ hidden agenda,” said former police detective Nora Pellegro. “I can’t fathom the psychology of a person who cries at the thought of executing a cop-killer, but treats the killing of unborn babies like a virtuous act to be applauded and cherished,” Pellegro said.
Yet the pro-abortion industry and their political supporters went ballistic when there were attempts at defunding Planned Parenthood and its $550 million dollar-a-year government subsidy for its genocidal mission, including the sale of babies’ body parts.
Meanwhile, the media ignores the contradictions between this harsh reality and the promises of the left, who fail to notice the suicidal implications for their own political futures.
Recently Walter B. Hoye II, President of the Issues4Life Foundation interviewed Dennis Howard, President of the Movement for a Better America, one on one to dig deeper into the subject of lives that matter. The conversation was eye opening.
Howard, who has written extensively on abortion demographics — and shares his research with Black Pro-Life leaders such as the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Dr. Alveda King — claims that “[s}ince 1992, Blacks have consistently voted 90% or more for Democratic candidates, delivering majorities of 10 million votes or more for the Democrats in presidential years. Which means that for their opponents to win, they have to garner 65% or more of the rest of the vote.”
“That’s next to impossible, as both McCain and Romney found out,” Howard noted.
“The flaw in this strategy is that abortion has taken such a huge toll on future Black voters that the chances of continued success of this strategy are dim. More than half of those 20.4 million innocent Black babies killed by abortion would be of voting age today. That means at least 10 million missing young Black voters, and a serious dent in future Democrat margins,” he said during his interview with Hoye.
Still, Howard’s concern is not politics, but life. Howard says, “It is simply ironic that, without abortion, the Democrats would be a shoo-in. So why do they persist in supporting what is clearly a genocidal policy? I once was a lifelong Democrat, but they lost me when the Clintons came along and signed on to their pro-abortion platform, which I saw as disastrous not just for Blacks, but for the whole country.”
From Hoye’s perspective, ending abortion is a matter of survival now: “I can’t quit, the future of my people depends on meeting the needs of our women and children.”
Planned Parenthood’s liberal-canonized founder, Margaret Sanger, spoke during the 1920s of sterilizing those she designated as “unfit,” a plan she said would be the “salvation of American civilization. And she also spoke of those who were “irresponsible and reckless,” among whom she included those ” whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers.”
She further contended that “there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped.” That many Americans of African origin constituted a segment of Sanger considered “unfit” cannot be easily refuted.
While Planned Parenthood’s current apologists try to place some distance between the eugenics and birth control movements, history definitively says otherwise. The eugenic theme figured prominently in the Birth Control Review, which Sanger founded in 1917. She published such articles as “Some Moral Aspects of Eugenics” (June 1920), “The Eugenic Conscience” (February 1921), “The purpose of Eugenics” (December 1924), “Birth Control and Positive Eugenics” (July 1925), “Birth Control: The True Eugenics” (August 1928), and many others.
Though once a social pariah group, routinely castigated by religious and government leaders, the Planned Parenthood is now an established, high-profile, well-funded organization with ample organizational and ideological support in high places of American society and government. Its statistics are accepted by major media and public health officials as “gospel”; its full-page ads appear in major newspapers; its spokespeople are called upon to give authoritative analyses of what America’s family policies should be and to prescribe official answers that congressmen, state legislator and Supreme Court justices all accept as “social orthodoxy.”
There is also a incestuous relationship between the Democratic Party and its politicians and Planned Parenthood. The government gives the group millions of taxpayers’ dollars each year. Planned Parenthood then distributes that money back to the Democrats who use it to win elections. “It’s a scam. It’s a way to get Americans to donate to both abortion clinics and to Democrats beholding to Planned Parenthood. Actually, it’s a method used by organized crime to ‘launder’ money,” former police investigator Manual Peron noted.
