Katherin McCann of Ohio Right to Life wrote a very disturbing op-ed that should delight racists everywhere.
In 2012, 9,694 African-American babies in Ohio were aborted. Though African-American women make up less than 8 percent of our state’s population, 42 percent of abortions were performed on them.Hey, remember hen Supreme Court Justice Ruth Vader Ginsburg said “Frankly I had thought that at the time [Roe v. Wade] was decided there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”
The article indicated that between 2007 and 2011, there were 819 sleep-related deaths among infants — “enough to fill seven kindergarten classrooms each of those years.”
For a comparison, in 2012 alone, 387 kindergarten classrooms of African-American students were aborted. This truly is a crisis.
As one of the articles pointed out, “Race remains a difficult topic in America.” But I have to agree with Sarah Biehl, policy director for the Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio, who said, “The more we have these conversations — these really uncomfortable conversations — the better.”
