I came across an article written by Dr. Patrick Johnston in the Zanesville Times Recorder that makes the case that the effects of slavery wasn’t the worse thing for black Americans — single motherhood and abortions are. He states that there are “more black men in prison today than were enslaved in 1850.” Wow, so does that excuse the scourge of slavery? Um, if I were patient of Dr. Patrick Johnston I would think twice about someone making such a reckless correlation between a woman’s reproductive rights and being enslaved. There’s more:
Our government’s remedy, however, has been to prescribe more of the poison. Our government has legalized, legitimized, and subsidized adultery and fornication, making it more profitable to be a deadbeat dad than a committed father and husband. As the stunning movie “Maafa 21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America” reveals, it was Margaret Sanger’s racism and fondness for eugenics that motivated her to set up government-funded Planned Parenthood birth control and abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods in this country. She considered immigrants and blacks to be “human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning… human beings who should never have been born.” Planned Parenthood got $487.4 million in taxpayer funds in 2012. About 80 percent of Planned Parenthood offices are in minority neighborhoods.
That brings us to the most devastating statistic in the African-American community. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, black women account for 13 percent of the total U.S. female population but undergo more than one-third of all abortions. If those black babies had been allowed to be born, the black population would be 50 percent larger. Abortion is the leading cause of death in the African-American population. Source
Dr. Patrick Johnston, who has a family medical practice, is also the founder of the Muskingum County Association of Pro-Life Physicians. I don’t expect him to say otherwise, but it is reckless to suggest that slavery wasn’t as devastating to the black community and somehow abortions are. I wonder if he would feel the same way if his ancestors were shackled and treated as three-fifths of a person? What Dr. Patrick Johnston has attempted to do is used veiled racism to say black women are too stupid to make decisions on their bodies. The dumbing-down of America continues…..
