Four states ranging from California (no surprise) to Kentucky (shock) passed ballot initiatives enshrining into law abortion to some extent, all the way to zero restrictions up until birth (California – figures). Abortion is killing, truth is truth. You can be in the eye of the tempest, north is still north.
Until I was around 30, though largely conservative, I was pro-abortion. My rationale was that women were going to seek it anyway, so why not have it be safe and legal? Within a few short years I did a 180 – I actually thought about it. It did not take me long to be staunchly pro-life. Here are the reasons why.
I learned that the Pied Piper of abortion in the US, Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, was an avowed eugenicist and racist. She viewed abortion as a way to rid society of unwanteds: the poor, the handicapped, the mentally feeble and especially minorities, mainly blacks. Hitler would love Sanger. Next, I realized that an unborn baby was a unique living being and could feel pain, often viable after a mere 6 or 7 months with help. Terminating a baby is murder. Third, I began to realize that the crime problem in the US, especially in big cities, is likely linked with abortion. What message does it send to young men and women, especially minorities, when their babies are treated as so much garbage, that they can be thrown away? Of course we have a major violent crime problem in black culture – the far-left has told them their lives are worth nothing. Finally, abortion is the most racist construct in our society. 40% of abortions are black babies, when blacks are barely 10% of the population. You want to see REAL racism and there it is, and it is 100% a leftist Democrat construct.
