Legal abortion amounts to genocide

Long before this nation careened head-on into a financial crisis, it encountered a moral one.

On Jan. 22, 1973, seven of nine Supreme Court justices declared that we had advanced far enough as a civilization to give women the right to terminate their unborn children.

Roe v. Wade has had a cataclysmic impact on our society, starting with the loss of approximately 50 million lives and precipitating the emotional devastation of millions of women. From a strictly financial perspective, many millions, had they been given the opportunity of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," would now be working, paying taxes, contributing to Social Security and leading productive lives. ...

Now enters Barack Obama who, during the presidential campaign, said determining when a child had human rights was "above my pay grade." Most know, however, that President Obama believes that unborn children are not human and have no rights. Obama demonstrated his callousness when, as an Illinois state senator, he alone argued from the chamber floor against the Child Born Alive Bill, which protected children who survived abortion. He later said that "my daughters should not be punished with a baby." ...

Obama has a voice but no message. He has ears but no desire to hear the truth. He has eyes but no vision. He has a heart but no compassion. He has a brain but no wisdom.

The tragedy is that blacks suffer disproportionately from abortion. While they make up 12 percent of the population, they account for 33 percent of abortions. One of every two black pregnancies ends in abortion. Blackgenocide.org, a Web site created by Clenard Childress, a black minister from New Jersey, exposes the harm inflicted on the black community by abortion and the lies of the abortion industry.

While Obama fiddles with our economic woes, he plans to broaden access to abortion and eliminate our greatest asset: our people. How is it possible for a nation to prosper when it practices genocide?
