If you want to understand the end, look at the beginning…
This Freudian-esque logic makes sense when we want it to—when it’s convenient for us.
For example, when a child is sexually abused and becomes promiscuous as a teen, we understand that it’s a result of what happened in their formative years. Or when a child watches his father beat his mother, only to grow up and have issues of domestic violence in his own life, though we don’t pardon it, we understand how maliable our beginnings are.
So how in the world can we so blindly dismiss the beginnings of an organization like Planned Parenthood whose founder clearly stated that abortion was her way to “exterminate the Negro population” and rid the world of inferior races such as blacks?
With her own mouth, the racist founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, stated that “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Margaret Sanger. Women and the New Race (Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923).
I don’t care how much distance Planned Parenthood tries to put between itself and its racist past. The truth is the truth. The principles that governed it then are the same principles that drive it now. If you don’t believe me, look at the abortion rates in the black community. They do it under the guise of protecting these poor young teenaged girls or young adult women from “messing up” their lives with a baby. But you and I both know, abortion is not used as protection but rather as the cruelest form of birth control.
Abortion–the killing of one’s child in womb…the ripping away of the very breath of life that God has breathed into you…the killing of the living soul that could be the cure for cancer, the soul that has the wisdom to cure AIDS….the soul that would at least bring a smile to your face on a rainy day without maliciousness…simply because you’re mom and that soul loves you for that—this abortion is not protection as Planned Parenthood would have you believe.
It is nothing more than Margaret Sanger’s vision of eugenics being lived out unreservedly in our communities.
And it breaks my heart.
So what can you do about it? What should you do about it?
Think about your actions young ladies.
Think about the innocence of love young men.
If you can’t keep your child for whatever reason, don’t kill them. If anything, give your child up for adoption. There are plenty of couples that can’t have children who would give your child a great start. You will not be judged for it. There is no condemnation in it. Don’t be ashamed.
Children….even bad ones…crying ones…are still a blessing from God. Don’t throw your blessing away.
And when it comes to organizations like Planned Parenthood, don’t be like the fools that sit outside of clinics with guns in tow, senselessly killing those who deserve our prayer and love. Instead, hit them where it hurts—don’t fund them. Pull your money out of the places they support. Boycott the organizations that use them as sponsors.
Reclaim our communities and give our best the chance to make it.
