During the life of Moses, Pharaoh put out a mandate against the Israelite children ordering all Egyptians to kill every male child in Goshen. Fast forward to the birth of Jesus where we see this mandate repeated by Herod the Great in Bethlehem. This was a terrible time in history and one would think that with all of our advanced intelligence and shunning of barbaric behaviors we would no longer allow the massacre of innocent children. Not so. There is a new mandate against your children and this Pharaoh goes by the name of Planned Parenthood.
The Truth about Planned Parenthood
A couple years ago, I was driving around my city. In chic, thriving Downtown, there is a lovely fertility center for those who wish to have children. Across town, planted smack dab in the middle of the ghetto, is Planned Parenthood. The set-up is likely the same in your own city.
Now think about this for a moment. What kind of people live in the fancy condos and homes near any given metropolis? Comfortable young adults and families who have nice cars, chic homes, and great jobs. They are also predominantly White. Now who lives in the ghetto? Predominantly Blacks and Latinos, struggling, surrounded by unemployment and minimum wage jobs, criminal activity, and all-around destitution.
One could say, “Well you wouldn’t put a fertility clinic in the ghetto. They can’t afford the services!” True. But along with that, let’s ponder why there is no Planned Parenthood in the thriving parts of a town. The signal is clear: one set of people is considered desirable and encouraged to reproduce while another set is considered undesirable and discouraged from reproducing. And guess what?? The message is working.

Abortion in the Black Community
- Since the legalization of abortion in 1973, there are 34 million Blacks, yet 14 million Black babies have been aborted. This is over 25% of our population.
- Blacks are only 12.3% of the American population, yet Black women receive 36% percent of the abortions.
- Black women are 3 times more likely than white women to get abortions.
- More Black babies have been eradicated by abortion since 1973 than Blacks have been by AIDS, crime, accidents, cancer, and heart disease combined.
Ms. Margaret Sanger
Margaret Sanger, the maniacal mastermind behind Planned Parenthood and the mandate against the ethnic seed of America. Here are her own thoughts on the importance of Black ministers driving the abortion efforts in our community.
The minister’s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members. (Margaret Sanger emphasis mine, Source: Concerned Women for America)
In a righteous government, these abortion practices—targeting any people—would not be legal. As a black man or woman, it should be wholly appalling that these practices target you and your people. If we are concerned about the deaths of our people by disease and crime, then we should definitely be concerned about the abortion amongst Blacks. The future of our people is at stake. No individual who thinks us “racially inferior” should be allowed to influence the growth or lack thereof of our community.
