What is the Price of a Life?


On July 13th, 2013, George Zimmerman was declared Not Guilty of the second-degree murder Trayvon Martin. The Black American community is in an uproar. “Leaders” have rallied the masses to demand justice. Jamie Foxx is carrying the single Trayvon banner for Hollywood. Pastors such as Rev. Tony Lee participated in “Hoodie Sundays” as a tribute to the fallen youth. What was the cost of Trayvon Martin’s life?

Yet what is the price of the countless young men like Trayvon gunned down by their own annually? And most importantly, what is the price of the millions upon millions of black babies annihilated through legalized abortion? We rage over Zimmerman’s overzealous, gun-toting ways, yet who will cry out against the weapon created by Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger; promoted by our own ministers; and aimed at our collective womb? Sanger may have crafted this “gun,” yet we willingly shoot it at our unborn. A quarter of what could have been Black America was aborted (BlackGenocide.org). In New York, there are more black abortions than births (All.org). Black Americans are becoming an endangered species.

Abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of. (Alveda King)

Where are the rallies, protests, and petitions to President Obama to desist this grievous injustice against our unborn? They are rallying in the streets for Trayvon, but Trayvon is easy. One youth. One family. One murderer free to walk. Oh yes, Trayvon is easy because when we focus on this one tragedy, we distract ourselves from the evil that takes place in and by our own community every single day.

On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States. (BlackGenocide.org)

We post hoodie pictures and clutch our children in fear, but where are the Mothers in Zion, the mourning women, and the pastors with the Father’s heart who will tuck head between knees and travail for an endangered generation and people?

We had no choice in our boat rides to this nation. We had no choice when our men were beaten, our women raped, and our children sold. But now we do.

It’s time that we remember the sacrifices of men…who worked and died so that our children could live. (Dr. Martin King Jr.)

Our Jewish brethren had no choice when the Nuremburg Laws stripped them of their citizenship and rights. They had no choice when they were placed in the death camps of Hitler’s Germany. But we do.

So after the rallies, after the riots (God forbid), and after God deals to Zimmerman his due, what will you choose to do about the real holocaust in our nation?

The steps of the Capitol are “stained with the blood of our own children.” (Ben Johnson)

When broaching this issue on Facebook, a black minister responded to me saying, “Another issue for another day.” He was right. Abortion, black genocide, is a much more heinous issue in the grand scheme of things. And the day to address this issue was in 1973—when Roe vs. Wade was passed. God may judge Zimmerman, the prosecution, the jury, and the judge for the fate of Trayvon Martin, but He will absolutely judge a nation for the systematic annihilation of innocent children.

Also on your skirts is found the blood of the lives of the poor innocents. I have not found it by secret search, but plainly on all these things. Yet you say, “Because I am innocent, surely His anger shall turn from me.” Behold, I will plead My case against you, because you say, “I have not sinned.” (Jeremiah 2:34, 35)

Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “Behold, I will bring on this city…all the doom that I have pronounced against it, because they have stiffened their necks that they might not hear My words.” (Jeremiah 19:15)

You have a choice to make: cling to the injustice of Trayvon’s murder or cry out against genocide. However tragic the death of Trayvon Martin, at least he had a chance at life. Those aborted do not. America, Black America, there is blood on our skirts. We must be made clean or suffer the consequences.

It’s time to stop killing the future and keep their dream alive. (Alveda King)
