Sanctifying Genocide

27 Jun

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again – the “Pro-Life” movement is more accurately called the Pro-Genocide movement.

Why? Because their support of “life” is narrowly confined to abortion. The fact that 10,000 or more black babies die a year due to substandard prenatal healthcare, another 10,000 die in the first year – and another 50-80,000 black American die a year due to substandard health care – and when combined with the unnecessary deaths of Hispanic and other minorities results in a Rwanda sized genocide, right here in America every 4 years…

Isn’t something on the agenda.

The christian right is perfectly happy to aid and abet in the murder of tens of thousand of black and brown babies a year through their support of right-wing racism in the form of conservative politics – as long as the mother doesn’t choose to abort the baby.

And as usual, whether with the”coonservative” talking heads and writers whose specialty and stock in trade is excoriating “black depravity” –  the Pro-Genocide right tries to put a black face in front to convince some weak minded black folks that genocide is good for them…

Black priest says pro-life, African-American communities must unite

An African-American priest who graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1989 told the National Right to Life convention June 19 that he was “heartbroken” when he learned that Notre Dame planned to honor U.S. President Barack Obama at its 2009 commencement.

“I was heartbroken to hear that my alma mater was betraying the church and her bishops and selling her spiritual birthright for a mess of presidential pottage,” said Josephite Father John Raphael, principal of St. Augustine High School in New Orleans.

Father Raphael spoke on “The Impact of Notre Dame on the African-American and Pro-Life Communities” at the convention’s prayer breakfast.

As the principal of a predominantly black, all-boys Catholic school, Father Raphael said he felt the tension of being an African-American who celebrated the historical significance of the first African-American president but who as a Catholic was dismayed over the fact that the unborn would not be protected by this president’s policies.

His convictions led him to speak at an alternative commencement ceremony at Notre Dame in May and gave him greater motivation to reconnect African-Americans with their pro-life roots.

His presence at Notre Dame was seen differently among most of the African-American and pro-life communities.

“I was welcomed with open arms by my pro-life brothers and sisters, and I was an enigma at best and a traitor at worse to many of my African-American brothers and sisters,” he said. “I found myself at the intersection of two communities who in many areas, even concerning the sanctity of life, have much more in common than one might imagine.”

Father Raphael said he believes these two communities need to connect because they need each other, as they stand on “different banks of a mighty and destructive river.”

“African-Americans need pro-lifers because African-Americans and minority communities are being systematically targeted by anti-life forces,” he said. “Our future is being destroyed by the genocidal magnitude of legalized abortion.”

Well, at least it is a little better than the typical black coonservative freak show, where the number of black folks killed in the Ghetto by violence (7,000) is the “biggest crisis facing black America” – but the premature death of 20,000 black babies a year due to lack of medical care – a statistic placing the United States near the bottom of first world nations…

Is no crisis at all.

Pro-Genocide… Indeed.

    Nice rant. If your upper number is right, we’re talking about 100,000 black Americans dying due to substandard health care, right? Would it surprise you to know that, since Roe v. Wade was passed 25 years ago, there have been 50 million abortions, and that 35% of those have been black, while only 12% of the population is black? In sheer numbers that’s about 17.5 million black babies aborted. Almost 700,000 a year. About 7 times your number of deaths due to ‘substandard’ healthcare. What do you define as substandard when any person with an ailment can walk into any emergency room in the country and get care, regardless of their ability to pay?

    Look at Canada where people stand in line to have necessary treatment-7 years waiting to be able to have a brain tumor removed, for example. That’s anecdotal, but that’s what I call substandard. Canadians come across the border to get treatment in the US because they can’t get it in Canada. That’s substandard.

      By those numbers – you have more babies being aborted than black women getting pregnant a year.

      And Americans are going to Mexico to get treatment… They can afford.

        I would like to see substantive records of David’s numbers. 700,000, that is hard to believe. Also a documented case of Canadian’s waiting 7 years for any needed emergency “treatment”. It sounds hyperbolic.

        Yeah, it is hyperbolic and it totally dodges the issue that 100,000 black folks a year are dying because of a lack of health care.

        Thanks for putting that silly sound bite in perspective. I really don’t think most people have any idea how many abortions are performed a year or whether racial statistics are kept. But I am willing to bet that most women who have an abortion have one in their lifetime.
