You go that right, Bill. And I believe you because of the latest from my god fearing friends on the right.
Seems that there is a new campaign going on to get black women not to have abortions. Why? Because abortions are part of a racist plot to exterminate black people.Yep. All those poor single mothers who decided that they weren't going to bring a child into the world, because, oh, I don't know; they wanted to maybe make something of themselves, are being tricked by pro-choice racist.
I swear the anti choice folks will do anything to get their way. I wonder where these people were when black folks -who were actually fully developed humans- were being killed in this country, for no other reason than the fact that they were black?
Field, did you know that the founder of planned parenthood "was founded by a woman who was a leading proponent of eugenics"? Yes, and I also know that Henry Ford hated Jews. But that doesn't mean that all those anti choice folks who drive Fords hate Jews.
Then there is this latest slave catcher, Catherine Davis, who makes the following comments with a straight face:
"The abortion industry is targeting the black woman," she said. "There is no lynch mob wearing white sheets and hoods. What they've done is take off the hoods and put on suits and say: let's go and kill the black people. It's cloaked itself by talking about choice. But the industry has targeted the black community. If people were put on the endangered species list then certainly black children would be there because more are aborted than at any time in history."

"Targeting the black woman"? Ms. Davis (and this comment is going to piss off some of you) I submit to you that the pro choice industry is not targeting under served communities enough. If I see one more poor black single mother at the bus stop with three or four kids and not a man in sight, I will scream. What we need is more pro active sex education in schools. (Where is Joycelyn Elders when you need her?) We also need more counseling for these young girls out here who think that having a baby is like having a f*&^%$g doll. And, getting in the face of some of these young boys who think that raising a child is some sort of joke.
But field, what do you do after the horse leaves the barn? Well, it depends on how far out of the barn the horse is. If he only stuck his tail out of the barn and you cut it off, you cut a tail, not a horse. (That was a weired analogy, but hey, it's late, it's the best I can do right now.)
I love these anti choice people ranting about abortions when they know damn good and well that if mommy brings the child into the world, they are the ones who are going to fight the hardest to make sure that he or she isn't playing on an equal playing field. Talk about irony. This isn't only about abortions this is about a woman's right to reproductive freedom. I don't care if a woman is black, white, purple, brown, rich, or poor; she should have the right to do what she wants to do with her own damn body. And I submit to you that if she does not think that she can raise a child she should NOT have one. Period.
"It is a message that plays well in parts of a community that remains suspicious of the intent of parts of the white establishment, including the medical industry, after revelations of experiments on black people as well as the second rate care they sometimes received in the past.
Other black leaders are backing the emotive message. Johnny Hunter, an African-American pastor and president of the Life Education and Resource Network, a Christian coalition, told a rally in Georgia last month that opposition to abortion is the new civil rights struggle.
"The civil rights activists did not fight to make lynching safe, legal, and rare. They ended it. We must fight to end the ugliest form of racism: abortion," he said. "More black children die every four days from abortion than the Ku Klux Klan killed in 144 years … All the civil rights gained in education, voting and equal job opportunities mean nothing to a dead black child."
Johnny, what does it mean to a child who is alive but wishes they were dead?
