A Black Woman's Voice: Abortion Hurts our Community
End the Ignorance Now!
By Michele Jackson
It is impossible to become energized to fix a problem if you do not know it exists. Many Black Americans do not know that over 1.3 million babies are dying from abortion each year. They do not know that about 34% of those dying are Black babies, meaning some 440,000 Black children die by abortion each year. Many Black Americans perceive abortion as a political fight, something having little to do with their daily lives. They could not be more wrong. We must make our community see abortion as a problem in our homes. Otherwise how can we ask that abortion be put on the agenda of critical problems to fix within the Black community? How can we call it a genocide or a manifestation of white supremacist thinking, as we call drugs in our community, if it is not common knowledge that abortion has killed nearly 12 million Black babies since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision? In other words, those of us who know the truth about the enormous destructiveness of abortion have a special obligation to make abortion not an abstraction but something intensely personal to the less informed.
The problem of drugs in the Black community is personal. Many of us know the men and women dying from and being destroyed by drugs. They are not just statistics to us. They are not somebody else's problem. They are part of our families. They have connections in the community and we have a leadership grappling for ways to solve the drug problem.

The aborted baby dies a violent death before even being allowed to come into the world; typically we do not even know her name. Her mother often suffers the loss of her child in lonely silence. Her family might not even know the woman was pregnant and that a relative had existed and was killed. Our community has never gotten the chance to feel these losses consciously and collectively. Also our media-appointed national leadership has treated the problem of abortion by consistently advocating policies that increase the number of abortions.

However, the women suffering abortion in silence, and their dead children, are a part of our community in staggering numbers. We have the job of rallying the community to stop the killing of our children. We have the job of rallying the community to find better solutions to pregnancy than killing the baby, than pitting mother against child.

But government and health care policies often discourage Black women from choosing life for their babies. Our nation's policies are often based on the premise that Black people's poverty is caused by their reproduction. Blaming the birthrate for poverty ignores the political, social, economic, and individual reasons for people being poor.

The public funding of abortion advocacy groups at a time of drastic cuts in welfare spending is particularly significant. This willingness to facilitate abortion for poor women, who are disproportionately Black, but not to address their basic needs, is strong evidence that much of the government is more interested in population reduction than in improving poor women's welfare. Government funding of organizations such as Planned Parenthood, one of the nation's largest providers of abortion clinics, reinforces the beliefs that the "solution" to Black poverty is to curb Black reproduction, that the fertility of Black women is fearsome, and that Black women do not deserve to be mothers.

American culture, unfortunately, upholds no popular image of a Black mother tenderly nurturing her child. Instead America has been bombarded with the image of the Black matriarch who demoralizes Black men and transmits a pathological lifestyle to her children, perpetuating poverty and antisocial behavior from one generation to the next.

Advocates of abortion told us in the 1970s that legalized abortion would dramatically reduce poverty and extend the rights of women.Years
later,with 20 Million Black children dead!!

Since when is "angry" a stereotype? I didn't say "angry black woman" because I don't want to give liberals another excuse to yell "racism!"
"Bottom line is, if the First Lady is tired of the so-called stereotype, than perhaps she should seek some anger management therapy or anger medication.
Her and Biden both.

Good question easy answer, after Obama's epic record breaking failure to engage his magnificent brain for his first debate, no further attention was needed. Peoples minds were made up. The polls show it and are basically all trending to Romney. Thanks for asking.

Made up numbers mean nothing.

A fetus is not a baby, no matter how hard you stomp your feet.

The antiabortionists screams Murder! but doesn't want to pay prenatal care and god forbid: birth control.

Funny how that is.

You don't get it. You are owed nothhiinnngggg! Nothing at all. the difference in abortion arguments is proper civilized behavior and being a slut. Then we go from there. we transitioned to being a slut as the norm. Abortions and the excuses for birth control ride piggy back with each other. Now that is none of my business. But living in a culture where the results have diminished our nation, is. the good news is this will not last. The bad news is much suffering is ahead.

I am sick and tired of the angry negro woman living center stage but who has never been proud to be an American.

who has had a life of privilege with millions of dollars in the bank but she is whining about how she can't find a decent pair of earnings for under $500.00. Bet the poor black single moms on the south side of Chicago wish they could afford $500.00 earnings.

She is From Chicago but turns her back on her city in trouble which needs help, but she would rather go to Africa at tax payers expense then help her home town. Negro lady with no class what so ever.
Must have been the influence of all those inspiring uplifting, positive sermons from the Rev "Not so" Wright.
Birds of a feather tend to gravitate in the same general direction.

Be so glad when these Negros are out of office and
we get some real Americans who are proud to be Americans in the white house

Fat old Michelle does not have the right to be fed up with anything. All she has done all her life as a 'taker' is used the system to her complete advantage. She has done it at the cost to the very people that pushed her and Opee thru, black people. The real problem is she is such a fronter that her followers can't see thru their rose colored glasses, that they are being 'had'. Obama uses the small mind to his advantage and stands on their shoulders to rule them. That is, rule them in between the golf,$100 lb. Kobe steaks, the caviar and Dom P. and parties.
The Obama's are elitist takers that think they are now Emperor's.

Now why didn't I think of that, perhaps that is exactly what we need. I am proud of boring you, it only means that I've kicked you right where it hurts, and I like that. I mean, shoot, I don't need to speak at a cross burning..........obammy's record speaks for itself, now THAT is boring.........in fact, it's not only boring, but his 'record' is downright pathetic!

Which do you think would be less expensive, your tax dollars paying for abortions or paying for the welfare support of unwanted children?

Michele Obama graduated cum laude from Princeton University. She also earned her Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School.

It's my guess you didn't have the brains to make through high school, Gomer,
