During her 2012 Democrat National Convention speech, First Lady Michelle Obama received the loudest cheers of the night when she told the convention attendees: "women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care," a thinly-veiled reference to a cornerstone of the Democrat Party...abortion on demand.
The crowd was sent into an outright frenzy over the mere mention of the ability to legally kill one's baby as the tiny life still grows inside them.
Earlier in the day, Toure Neblett, co-host of The Cycle on MSNBC, sent out a Twitter message urging women to obtain abortions now in the event Mitt Romney is elected in November.
Neblett said: "Girls, get your abortions NOW in case the Republicans win."
Of course, abortion, specifically the abortion of black children, has long been a cornerstone of this country's liberal elites.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of the American Birth Control League (which eventually became known as Planned Parenthood), pioneered the tactic of manipulating black church leaders towards social goals (i.e. the wholesale abortion of black babies).
In a letter to her colleague, Dr. Clarence Gamble, (dated Dec. 19, 1939) Sanger wrote: "We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
Sanger actually published several books in which she often referred to blacks as "genetically unfit" and "human weeds."
It is no coincidence that 78 percent of the 850 abortion clinics operated across this country by Planned Parenthood are located inside or within close proximity to minority neighborhoods.
In April 2008, a group of black pastors held a vigil outside of a Washington D.C. Planned Parenthood clinic. They did so to protest what they characterized as "murder" being carried out against black babies.
In addition to beginning a campaign to educate the public about the toll which abortion is taking on the black community, the pastors asked Congress to audit Planned Parenthood.
In 2009, Planned Parenthood received a total of $350 million in contracts and grants from the federal government.
According to a report by the group Students for Life America, black women are 4.8 times more likely to have an abortion than are their white counterparts. Black women make up 36 percent of those receiving abortions, while black children make up only 17 percent of live births.
The report states: "Contrary to the public’s belief that Planned Parenthood is helpful and supportive of family planning and the health of the mother and child, recent news and research show that the roots of its foundation have continued to give birth to continual hatred and disdain for minorities that its founder saw as 'unfit.'"
According to the Center for Disease Control, there were 11,156,700 black babies aborted between 1973 and 2001. Today, that number is estimated to be more than 13,000,000.
We hear so much about how violence is taking a tremendous toll on the black community and while that is true, it cannot begin to compare to the genocide abortion represents.
