Roe v. Wade has led to an African American holocaust

Harry C. Alford

Let me first say that I believe a woman should have the right to an abortion. It is the law and each person has their own decision to make. However, since the court decision, Roe v. Wade, the amount of abortions in this nation have been on a steady rise. Black abortions are now at an epidemic rate and a lot of God’s children are being snuffed out without a chance of life. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) states that in 2010 Blacks comprised of 12.6% of our national population. However, we account for 35.4% of all abortions during that year. In sum, since the court decision Black women have removed from their bodies 15 million babies. This year alone they will account for over 400,000 Black abortions. Minorities per se kill babies at more than three times the rate of white children.

The historical trend is amazing. The CDC reports that during the 1970’s roughly 24% of all U.S. abortions were performed on Black women. That percentage rose to 30% in the 1980’s, 34% in the 1990’s and 36% in the 2000’s. Our population has been growing at a slower rate than other races (Census Bureau). This can be attributed to the mass elimination of our precious children who lie within their mothers’ womb. Hispanics have surpassed us as the second largest population group in the nation. I think we have an answer - abortion frenzy. Dr. Martin Luther King once said, "The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety".

What is "fanning this awful flame"? I truly conclude that it is a very active organization known as Planned Parenthood. Their offices are located in communities with noticeable minority populations. It becomes clear they are targeting minorities, particularly Blacks. Let’s look at the roots of Planned Parenthood. Its founder, Margaret Sanger, had fascist and racist views and supported eugenics. Eugenics is the applied science of strengthening the population by increasing the breeding of those who are desired and weeding out the strains of humanity that is considered weak and feeble. Ms. Sanger and her board of directors were of the same ilk. They admired Adolph Hitler and his "final solution" of Jews. They were candid in their beginning stages and the evolution of Planned Parenthood (merging with like groups). The eugenic theme was strong in Ms. Sanger’s magazine entitled Birth Control Review which she started in 1917. Some of her articles were "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). I could go on and on. Some of her quotes: "Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated". "We prefer the policy of immediate sterilization, of making sure that parenthood is ‘absolutely prohibited’ to the feeble-minded". "We do not want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro Population".

Before World War II, Ms. Sanger and her compatriots flirted intensely with the Nazi view of eugenics. According, "Lothrop Stoddard was on the board of directors (of Margaret Sanger’s Population Association of America) for years… He had an interview with Adolf Hitler and was very impressed. His book, The Rising Tide of Color against White World Supremacy, was written while he served on Sanger’s board. Havelock Ellis, one of Sanger’s extra-marital lovers, reviewed this… book favorably in The Birth Control Review". As the horrors of the Nazi’s started to be unveiled, Planned Parenthood founders decided to take a more public relations approach. They reached out to Black groups for cover and also to improve their "fishing" of Black women. The Urban League, NAACP, AKA Sorority, AME Church all took the bait. Even today, most in the Black community has a positive image of Planned Parenthood - the provider (throughreferral) of abortions. Our morality, faith and leadership have gone down the wrong road.

Who owns these abortion clinics? All types do - good and bad; responsible or reckless. Even our Attorney General, Eric Holder, has a connection with a clinic via his wife and in-laws. It is the Old National GYN in College Park, Georgia. We all know about the mass murder shop in Philadelphia. Doctor Kermit Gosnell was birthing babies and then killing them by snipping the back of their necks with scissors. They have indicted him on 8 counts of murder. Certainly, there are more as he has performed over 16,000 abortions but he would destroy the evidence to cover his tracks. Did you know that abortion clinics are not regulated? All of this termination of life when we have all types of vehicles for birth control (prevention of pregnancy). Shouldn’t we be wiser and more worthy of Heaven above?

  • July 6th, 2013 Sir,
    I was one of those white liberal “Moderates” that Dr. Martin Luther King wrote in the Letter from the Birmingham Jail. About ten years ago (I am now 68), I realized that I could no longer trust the politicians who told me to “Vote for us Democrats and we will take care of everything”. (I was a Democrat back then.)

    It is time for me to stand up. I take some direction from my family history. When no one would publish Uncle Tom’s Cabin because it was too divisive, and inflammatory, and judgmental and we had to be moderate, an ancestor of mine John Punchard Jewett stood up and did publish it. When the Civil War started, some 200 (family lore has it that there were some 400, but 200 have been documented) of my ancestors stood up to fight and kill and spill their own blood and some died to save the Union and to end slavery. As the hymn Battle Hymn of the Republic has it “…He (Jesus) died to make men holy, let us die to make them free” Those were my ancestors (among many others).

    As MLK’s daughter, Bernice King, recently said of her father: ““I know deep down in my sanctified soul that he did not take a bullet for same-sex unions.” And my ancestors didn’t sacrifice their own blood so that Black women could kill their unborn children. The act of casual abortion is disrespect to their sacrifice.

    I would respectfully point out something. Today, like yesterday and tomorrow, some 3,300 (more or less) women will decide to kill their unborn child. And over 90% will happen because the pathetic little baby is ‘inconvenient”. About 1,220 of those women will be Black. Some 48% of expectant Black mothers choose to kill their un-born child. When you see a black child, there is another one who died on the abortion table.

    Back when Democrats were Slave Owners, a black child had some value, if only as a slave. Now, Black babies are worth nothing to the Liberal Democrats. In fact they take hundreds of thousands of our tax dollars and make it convenient for Black women to terminate their un-born children.

    It seems to me that unborn black babies were better off when their parents were slaves. At least they were permitted to live. Yes, as a slave, but as long as there is life there is hope.
    The some 1,220 unborn Black babies who will die today will never have a first kiss, or see a sunrise, or have a moment's hope. I pray that the Lord will comfort their souls.
