A pro-life vote in this election is a vote for human rights. Unborn children have the right to life, and African-American babies have the right NOT to be selectively destroyed. 77% of African-American pregnancies are aborted right now, and African-American babies are three times more likely to be aborted than white babies. Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, the black population in the U.S.has been reduced by over 25 percent( ref).
A nation which cares about 4,295 combat deaths (~430 per year) in the War on Terror , and cares about 40,000 motor vehicle deaths per year, should also care about 1 Million infant deaths by abortion per year.
For those who are hard-hearted enough to advocate 1 million yearly infant deaths for the sake of a promiscuous lifestyle without consequence– consider, too, the financial repercussions. The tax dollar contributions, as well as social security contributions that would be made by the 45 million Americans who are missing since Roe v. Wade, would be staggering.
The argument that unaborted babies would be a burden on society (given the racial abortion statistics quoted above) borders on racism. Generally, the birth of a baby transforms people of any color into more mature, caring and motivated individuals who become an asset to society.
Pro-abortion arguments such as rape or incest are attempts to sensationalize the issue, and to circumvent the real ethical questions. Rape and incest actually represent only 1% of abortions, and are introduced to distract from the fundamental moral issue. Planned Parenthood actually often helps molesters and rapists to hide their crimes, by assisting them with abortion and failing to report their crimes.
This irreplaceable value of each human life is at the heart of moral teachings and respect for human life, and is essential for the healthy and balanced survival of human society.
The ethical questions behind pro-life issues cannot be so trivially dismissed as some attempt to do by masquerading murder under the banner of “pro-choice.”
Whose choice? Certainly not the unborn child’s choice!
Madison, vote Pro-Life! In this election, that means vote Republican.
