Why do we abort more black babies than white? … Race Selective Abortion in America

“The greatest and most shameful regrets of history are always about the truth we failed to tell,” says Gary Haugen, Founder and President of International Justice Mission.

On the Darrow Miller & Friends blog, we have sought to tell the truth about gendercide – the systematic and methodical elimination of females. This war against female is rooted in the lie that male is superior to female. In fact, as we have argued, the lie is propagated by both sexism and radical feminism.

It’s time to tell another truth, this one about genocide – the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial group – in the United States.  The following graph of abortions in the United States by rate and race tells a chilling story: black babies are aborted at a rate three times that of white babies.

These statistics are not merely troubling: they are revolting. How can this be? Could it BE that the particularly pernicious lie – “whites are superior to blacks” – is still manifest in the United States through the champions of the abortion industry? Could this be another example of evil institutionalized? Are we witnessing a whole social machine that exists for the sole purpose of reducing the size of the black community through the elimination of black babies?

The spiritual realm impacts the physical realm through culture. Lies manifest themselves at a personal level in immoral behavior. But they also manifest themselves in the institutions and structures of a society. This lie that whites are superior to blacks was institutionalized in the United States through slavery, a practice abolished at the cost of an estimated 620,000 human lives in a bloody civil war.

The practice ended, but the lie that birthed it may still find a home in some parts of American society. Indeed, even today this lie drives two evils: targeted sterilization of blacks, and systematic and methodical killing of black babies in the womb through race-selective abortions.

In the first half of the 20th century a eugenics movement was active in the United States. One of the leaders of this movement was Margaret Sanger.

In the book that helped define the movement The Pivot of Civilization, Sanger writes:

[Charity] encourages the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant [emphasis added] (pg 116,117).

Notice Sanger’s use of words! She speaks of minorities as dead weight, human waste, and stock. Her atheistic and materialist worldview blinds her to the fact that all human beings are made in the image of God. She objectifies people as things, thus easily eliminated. Black Genocide estimates that, since 1973, we have 13,000,000 fewer black children in the US due to abortion. The black community is beginning to become aware of race selection abortion and is and speaking out.

In 1921 Margaret Sanger founded the American Birth Control League (ABCL) as the action arm of her Eugenics philosophy. In 1942, at the height of the Nazi holocaust (a product of Malthusian Eugenics) ABCL changed its name to the more benign Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The new name changed little of the underlying philosophy. For a definitive work on the ABCL read George Grant’s Grand Illusion.

The upcoming documentary movie Maafa21 documents the thread of the manifestation of the lie from its application in slavery to the Malthusian Eugenics movement to the race selection abortions of today. See the trailer here. For a quick read see Daniel J. Flynn’s article It Did Happen Here.

US citizens who are appalled by gendercide and race selection abortions now have a way to engage. The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, or “PRENDA,” is working its way through the House of Representatives. One of the authors of the bill, Congressman Trent Franks, states the purpose of the bill is to “… restrict sex-selection abortion and race-selection abortion, and the coercion of a woman to obtain either. The woman seeking an abortion is exempted from prosecution, while abortion providers are held to account.” Dr. Alevda King, niece of Dr Martin Luther King writes passionately in support of Prenda.

If you are abhorred by sex-selective race-selective abortions you should begin to educate yourself about the modern genocide. Engage with one of the above groups to guarantee the right to life for all children, not just those favored by the power brokers. If God is giving you the vision, start an organization or lead a movement to end modern gendercide and racial genocide.

“The greatest and most shameful regrets of history are always about the truth we failed to tell” …  or to ACT UPON.
