Whether we acknowledge it or not, the single greatest genocide in human history is the procedure we know as legalized abortion. Since the 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision, an estimated 57 MILLION children have been killed, mostly in the name of parental convenience. Compare that number to the total number of people murdered during the Nazi Holocaust (an estimated 5-6 million) and one can clearly see why the term genocide is appropriate in this circumstance.
Recently Planned Parenthood, the single greatest advocate for murdering unwanted children, released its Annual Report where in which they gave themselves a nice pat on the back for all the good work they’ve done this year. Contained within the report is page after page self congratulatory headlines such as “We reached 125,000 young people in crisis,” “We engaged in more than 70 research projects to shape women’s health,” and “We streamlined and expanded care.”
All wonderful and pleasant sounding stuff, for sure. Great work team! Way to go…
But, then they headlines turn south…
“We won court victories protecting abortion access”
“We fought abortion stigma in popular culture”
“We turned the Hobby Lobby decision into a national rallying cry”
And if one could stomach the vomit inducing headlines and articles enough to get down to the fine print, one would find this stat tucked deep down in the bowels of the paper:
327,653 people were murdered by Planned Parenthood this year. Let that number sink in for a minute…
At a time when our cities are swarmed by protests and riots over the death one or two people (as justified as those protests may be), I find it absolutely mind boggling that this number sits quietly and seemingly unchallenged by the mainstream media. Where are the protests for the 327,653 lives snuffed out by Planned Parenthood?
It’s fascinating that the only tidbit of data their Annual Report doesn’t offer is a racial breakdown of those who received the Planned Parenthood abortion services. It has been a well documented fact that the abortion industry is inherently racist in nature. Consider the numbers: According to 2010 census data, African Americans make up 12.6% of the U.S. population but the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that black women accounted for more than 40% of all abortions.
I’m happy to support the #BlackLivesMatter movement as we must deal with the ongoing reality of racism in our cities and neighborhoods, but where’s the outcry for the estimated 130,000 African American children snuffed out this year alone at the hands of this evil organization? Where’s the demand for reparations owed due to the racial profiling of frightened, poor black women for abortion services by Planned Parenthood?
I understand that sometimes awful decisions need to be made. In some exceedingly rare circumstances the life of one must be lost so that another may be spared. I’m not naive to this reality. But, when the vast majority of abortions are a result of the perceived inconvenience of having a child and when we make abortions the easiest medical procedure to obtain and adoptions increasingly expensive and restrictive, it’s apparent that no matter how much we proclaim to cherish life in all forms, the reality is we only cherish life as much as it doesn’t inconvenience our self indulged lives.
If we truly want to live in a society where #BlackLivesMatter and #BlueLivesMatter and #AllLivesMatter, it is time we turn our attention to this admittedly uncomfortable but stark reality that as of right now it’s the little lives that need protected more than any others. Perhaps its time we start a new hashtag campaign:
