    This is such a thinly veiled attempt to disenfranchise black women, and the generation after them, that it would be laughable if it weren’t so depressing.

    So….Ms. Solomon demonizes religion when it’s used to save the lives of women and children from abortion. But, she fails to mention that she readily accepts “religion” to be used by Planned Parenthood to promote abortion through its Clergy for Choice, its partnership with the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice and its 40 Days for Life knock-off–40 Days of Prayer–invoking a God that apparently revels in the slaughter of innocent life. Aside from sloppy research, complete misrepresentation of statistics, and avoidance of any actual discussion of what a culture of abortion has done to decimate the black community, this piece worships the false savior of Planned Parenthood which has not improved the socio-economic status of the black community–ever. There is one ironic truth the author fails to realize, considering the title of this abortion advocacy piece. It was the “missionary movement” that largely abolished slavery enabling Ms. Solomon to be free to read and write today.

      No one is demonizing religion I for one have no problem with CPCs giving out support women who choose to continue their pregnancies. It is their lies and misrepresentations I take great offense to. I take great offense to the race baiting propaganda CPCs hand out to black women regarding abortion that is factually inaccurate. I know it exists and is true because I have read it. I am currently in possession of such pamphlets from Pro-Life Mississippi. I think the work they do in regards to the limited referral support and supplies they give is great but they should not be allowed to lie to women or pose as actual clinics when they are not.

      Oh, look, it’s Bomberger the Rape Apologist. Stop dumping your lying, misogynist nonsense here, Ryan.

      And it was the child-raping Vatican that supported Confederate slavery, hid one of Lincoln’s assassination co-conspirators in its Swiss Guard, ordered German Catholics to vote for anti-abortion Catholic Hitler, hoodwinked pedophile Cardinal Spellman’s pushing the Pentagon Inquisition extermination of 2 million “heretic” Buddhist “communist” Vietnamese, greenlighted the Catholic missionary-forced overpopulation tribal genocides of the Tutsi and Hutus, and genocided millions of Africans through its condom ban, plus another 40-100 million indigenous people in the Americas through planned starvation, induced plagues, medical experiments, military slaughters, forced abortions and infanticides (to hide priest sex crimes).

      Black women disproportionately inherit narrower pelvises, thereby making childbirth far more dangerous for them. Google Dr. Marion Sims to get a clue about gruesome obstetric fistula repair surgeries that he perfected on slave women. If you cared about black women, which I know you don’t, you wouldn’t be forcing deadly childbirth injuries on them just to restock pedophile priests’ supply of fresh victims. Shame on you!

      Fetuses are neither innocent nor guilty. Y’know who IS innocent, the woman who is accidentally pregnant. Abortion isn’t slaughter, either. Y’know what IS slaughter, killing thousands of women through forced pregnancy and childbirth. Planned Parenthood doesn’t promote abortion. CPCs, however, do not advertise their adoption trafficking specialties. More women die in childbirth and pregnancy than from abortion. If religion actually wanted to save WOMEN, it would be all for legal abortion. YOU invoke a God that apparently revels in the deaths of women. SO sorry.

      “…this piece worships the false savior of Planned Parenthood which has not improved the socio-economic status of the black community–ever.”

      PPH is a provider of affordable health care in the free market capitalistic society that insists on preying upon those with the least available resources. Kind of like the multiple religious entities who prey on the weak in order to stuff their bank accounts and gain “God points” to put on display with criminal pride.

      PPH is just one part of the solution to helping any poor community improve economically.
      CPCs are merely sources of misleading information offering little tangible support to women they divert from receiving abortions.

      As a young black atheist woman, I do not need you or your organization trying to take my rights away as an intelligent and capable person able to make my own health decsions. You assume that black women like me are ignorant and stupid enough to be brainwashed into having an abortion. You know what? I make that choice. Not you, PP, or anyone else. Abortion is voluntary and one that black women are capable of choosing wisely with accurrate information your organizations does not want us to have. Plus the “missionary movement” did not abolish slavery, it started slavery. You christians jumped on the bandwagon of abolishing slavery only after others started working against it. History repeats itself. You enslaved my ancestors, now you want to do it again by enslaving my body all because of your mythology. Screw you!!

    “Correlations are not explanations and besides, they can be as spurious as the high correlation in Finland between foxes killed and divorces.”(Gunnar Myrdal).
    I am prolife but Akiba Solomon is right. That black women have more abortions is not proof of racism. But this is also a dangerous argument for liberals. The left believes in a racist conspiracy talk imprisonment and the death penalty. The explanation, of course, is that blacks commit the vast majority of serious crime; that hard fact, not racism, explains the disproportionate black incarceration rate. Though blacks account for just one-eighth of the US population, they are six times more likely than whites to be murdered, and seven times more likely to commit murder. That hard fact, not racism, explains the high proportion of inmates who are black.

      You’ve already pretty much proven that you have very little working knowledge of what the left and right in America thinks, as evidenced by your previous gaffe with the ultra-conservative Eagle Forum.

      Wrong, endemic racism explains the high population of black people in prison for comparatively MINOR crimes.

      Ah, I see you’re a racist, too.

    As someone who has worked in the adoption industry, I can honestly say that every woman giving birth to every fetus just to starve, neglect, and abuse them later doesn’t sit well with me. Our current foster care system can’t even protect babies that are already born from harm, and yet long term birth control and sterilization options are hard to obtain for a lot of women who want them. You need to look at both sides of the coin here. It would be great if every baby was born healthy to a loving family but that isn’t the case.

    We have over 400,000 children in the system right now that are without families. A lot of women with problems will just leave their babies in hospitals after they have been born. Thats suits your moral compass right? But what happens after that? There aren’t enough suitable parents out there that want to adopt them. Emphasis on the SUITABLE part. I can’t believe what kind of people ask for babies when I wouldn’t trust a gold fish in their care.

    And wow @ how many times I’ve had to post this comment. I’m just going to met stupid people be stupid now.

    This stuff makes me sick. These people have no interest in poor black children. These are the kind of people who would be first in line to cut food stamps, school lunches, Head Start – all of the programs that help poor children and a disportionate number of black children. I really feel like these people are just using the black community as a red herring hoping that they can use “racism” to limit choice options for white women also. Love the fetus, hate the baby.
