So Much For "Rare"

The city health department has released statistics that nearly 40% of pregnancies in New York City are terminated in abortion. If James Taranto's "Roe effect" is true, NYC is a prime example of the self-inflicted genocide among liberal (particularly black) populations. NYC nearly doubles the national abortion rate of 23%.

I previously lamented the world-wide "gendercide" effect of abortion on women. The lack of concern to this trend by women's groups is beyond condemnation. And with over 50% of pregnancies among blacks ending in abortion, the present black population of the U.S. would be 1/3 higher without abortion. Slavery was less lethal to the black population than abortion.

And it bears mention that Obama and most of the Democratic party support "post-birth abortion," having opposed laws requiring physicians to provide medical care to infants born alive during an attempted abortion. These are not leaders likely to reduce abortions among the ranks of their supporters.

"Slavery was less lethal to the black population than abortion."

SRSLY?

Why yes, he's completely correct about this, at least as it relates to slavery in the United States. Indeed, I think infant mortality among slaves was on a par with such mortality among immigrants (in some cases, much better). Slaves, at least as they were employed in the South, were a valued commodity -- they had good medical care (such as it was, given the era).

Now slavery in the Caribbean -- that's a completely different situation. The slaves died like flies in places like Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Their numbers were only maintained by new imports from Africa. The statement may not be as accurate when applied to slavery in other parts of the New World.

Slavery was pretty wretched in Brazil as well, with very high mortality rates. However, the journey from what is now Angola to Brazil was not nearly as difficult, so it was reletively easy to replace slaves with new bodies purchased from the Africans.
I have to take issue with the notion that the black population would be that much higher if there were no abortions. Abortion has possibly become one of the main methods of "contraception" in the black community. Condoms, if used, are for preventing STD's; if your partner is clean, then planned parenthood takes care of any "surprises".

Absolutely seriously, matter of fact double dare you seriously:

Great historical information on left-wing genocidial nutball Margaret Sanger and quotes from a left-wing genocidial nutball named Ruth Bader Gingsberg who sits on our Supreme Court :

Here is the quote:

"Frankly I had thought that at that time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of."

7/2/09 Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
