Because while there is no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence completely, no piece of legislation that will prevent every tragedy, every act of evil. If there is even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there is even one life that can be saved, then we’ve got an obligation to try.
President Introduces a Plan to Reduce Gun Violence, Jan. 16, 2013
Roe v. Wade. The case that was the gateway on abortion. A court-created right leading to massive death. But no “obligation to try” stopping that?
While rightfully seen as a political and social issue, abortion is also a health issue. Premature death at the hands of medical personnel certainly puts abortion in the health realm. That’s one reason for me to address the subject. But there’s more.
Could abortion also be a racial issue? And a racial issue with profound political implications? Implications which expose the horrible moral downside of abortion as well as the left wing’s utter disregard for life, especially the lives of the dark-skinned unborn?
How do all these aspects of abortion come together to support the idea that Mr. Obama could be the last black president because of abortion?
If you are African-American, you are much more likely to vote for Democrats (even more so for Obama). And more likely to be dead from abortion.
Several years ago when I suggested that abortion could mean no more black presidents as an electoral issue, there was liberal blowback: I should “get a real job . . . Like so many christianists on the right, he likes to make stuff up and then wax profound.” In response, I say this is not made up and it is, in fact, profound.
All I was suggesting was that abortion makes up a disproportionately greater number of black “pregnancy terminations” versus Hispanic, Oriental, and Caucasian abortions. That means there would be disproportionately fewer eligible black voters roughly 19 years following the year in which the abortion took place. Simple math.
The government is several years behind in tabulating abortion figures. So I’m working with official 2007 numbers which should be pretty representative of today. There were 62 million women of child-bearing age in 2007. That was made up of over 9 million black females, or 15% of the total group.
For abortion, the 2007 percentage was much higher. There were 448,000 black abortions of the 1.2 million total, or 37% of that total group. That means a black baby is almost 2 1/2 times (37%/15%) more likely to die by abortion than someone of another race.
One wonders if Mr. Obama has ever thought about this travesty. He certainly is willing to put all kinds of restrictions on the 2nd Amendment “if there is even one life that can be saved.” How about 450,000 black lives per year?
So, if voting preferences and abortion figures continue as is, then 2013 abortions alone will take out at least 400,000 black Obama-oriented voters of the future. Ninety percent (of black voters who would vote for a black Democrat) times 450,000 (black abortions) gives that number of 400,000.
That’s a distinct disadvantage for liberals in the 2032 general election. But let’s go back in history.
If only Obama’s Democrat predecessors had stopped the legalization of abortion in its tracks, Obama wouldn’t have needed to campaign in 2008 or 2012. All he’d have needed was his name on the ballot in, maybe, 30 states. Shoo-in.
Abortion made the last two presidential elections much closer than they would have been if not for abortion.
After all, don’t you suppose the roughly 15 million Democrat-minded voters (that is, who would have been alive to vote) might have made some difference?
And think of the billions in pro-Obama political ads we’d have been spared. I’m sure the Democrats would have been glad to take the savings and apply that against the national debt.
The bottom lines are these:
- Because of abortion, the probability of another liberal black chief executive continues to go down considerably. President Obama could indeed be the last of his kind.
- However, the probability of a black Republican or Tea Party president has actually increased.
- And the Democrats themselves are to blame.
