I’m not trying to be an ass here but if the shoe fits…
It affects me. It affects you. It affects us. Abortion is not just a women’s issue. It is a human issue. And today, for African-Americans, it is a human crisis. Nearly 40% of all black pregnancies end in induced abortion. That’s over 3x the rate of white women and 2x the rate of all other races combined. There are beautiful alternatives: adoption and parenthood, but they are not money-makers for abortionists. -TooManyAborted.com
I’m still trying to figure out how people are finding these billboards racist. How are the billboards ‘targeted’ at the Black community if its based on facts and not bigotry? Besides that, the fact that these are kids making kids due to the lack of caring parents, safe sex practices, and sex education is probably the main cause to all of these abortions. It may sound and seem far-fetched but its not that much of a stretch.
On the site it says, “Men need to step up and own up to their responsibility as fathers. Period”. That is true if some if not most of them were men. Its again children having children. I’ve walked up and down the old neighborhood I used to live in and all I saw was pregnant teenagers or teenagers lugging two kids around; one for each hip. I’m not saying that all the abortions of the black percentage is from teenagers but I’m sure they make up a large amount of that percentage.
To keep their social lives intact they rather exterminate the pregnancy instead of carrying the child for 9 months and giving the baby up for adoption. Teens don’t think logically; they’re teens.
I can agree if you lay down to have a kid you should stand up to be parents. What if these kids are pressured into getting an abortion? If I had a dime for every time I heard, “my boyfriend suggested I get an abortion, and I agree” I would be filthy stinking rich. Some of these women don’t have the resources or a stable enough life to carry children but what can we do about it? Abortions are legal in the U.S.; so what exactly are we as Americans are doing to stop it?
When you look at these charts, can you honestly believe that those billboards are racist? Instead of facing the facts, most like to hide behind that racism wall and point the finger. Denial is a dangerous and often times lethal emotion.
Statistically, for every 1.3 live births in the black community, 1 child is aborted.
The stats are crazy and honestly its only going to get worse. These women and teens are going to keep taking the ‘easy way out’ even if they have to do it themselves. Yes, lets not talk about those type of abortions. Lets not get on the women and teens who actually carry the child for 9 months just to throw it in the garbage because they couldn’t afford an abortion and or they were too young to get it themselves which would result in parental consent.
Really, how many is too many? Is it too many because Blacks are minorities or is it too many because its just too many? Is this some conspiracy of ‘controlled population’? Shockingly, that has been argued and not just amongst Blacks.
Today, abortion kills more Blacks, per year, than heart disease, cancer, respiratory disease, accidents, homicides, suicide, and cancer–combined.
If anyone can explain to me thoroughly and logically how these billboards are racist; feel free. I’m done.
