Life, in general, is a minefield. You take one step in the wrong direction and find your legs staring you in the back.
I'm a pro-abortion guy. Not just because I'm a guy but because I truly believe in my heart that grown folks should be able to do to what they want with their bodies. No one should suffer for the rest of their lives because of a one-night stand. We don't give most murderers life sentences but the fact that some of us want to do it to women is ludicrous. America is the land of second chances, ask Donald Trump, Martha Stuart and your next door neighbor. Mistakes happen.
But like I said, life is a minefield. And you never know who to trust.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. 78% of their clinics are in minority communities. Blacks make up 12% of the population, but 35% of the abortions in America. Are we being targeted? Isn't that genocide? We are the only minority in America that is on the decline in population. If the current trend continues, by 2038 the black vote will be insignificant. Did you know that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a devout racist who created the Negro Project designed to sterilize unknowing black women and others she deemed as undesirables of society? The founder of Planned Parenthood said, "Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated." Is her vision being fulfilled today?
Tough questions. And I am not the only one twisting the abortion/genocide question in their mind.My take is a little different, though. It makes me wonder how important is history?
My favorite poet as a kid was e.e. Cummings. The verbal and visual inventiveness of his work fascinated me. But then as I got older I found his depictions of society's hypocrisy and monotony elitist and self-indulgent. Then one of my teachers claimed that some of his work features racist and anti-Semitic overtones. No matter what the truth is, I never looked at his poetry the same. It's like steak served on a garbage can lid.
So am I aiding my race's destruction by supporting abortions? I really don't think so. It is a woman's right to her life that gives her the right to terminate her pregnancy. There are many legitimate reasons why a rational woman might have an abortion--accidental pregnancy, rape, birth defects, danger to her health. The issue here is the proper role for government. If a pregnant woman acts whoreish, then she should be condemned morally--but not treated as a murderer.
The anti-abortionists' claim to being "pro-life" is a classic Big Lie. You cannot be in favor of life and yet demand the sacrifice of an actual, living individual to a clump of tissue. It is serving women life on a garbage can lid.
