Despite recruiting women to “Shout their Abortions” and sending activists to invade kid spaces such as HiHo Kids YouTube channel with pro-abortion propaganda, a fractured and confused left is discovering that most Americans have a distaste for the ugly business of abortion.
The New York Times is right to be concerned about the growing number of states that have passed or are in the process of passing new laws restricting the abhorrent practice of abortion. It reported that states in the South and Midwest have passed 58 abortion restrictions. With the U.S. Supreme Court slated to hear an abortion case in spring 2020, it puts Roe v. Wade advocates on notice. The future of legalized abortion on demand could be at stake.
At this point in history, our nation has record-low fertility and birth rates. In 2018, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 3.8 million births were recorded. This represented the fourth year of decline in fertility rates and births. All races and ethnicities were affected, but the impact on black Americans is greater than any other group. Fertility rates among blacks are dropping, and they are disproportionately aborting more of their unborn babies than other groups.
Let’s pause to view the landscape. More than 40 years after the landmark Supreme Court cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton legalized abortion in the 50 states, we have reached a special moment in U.S. history. It’s one in which thoughtful Americans finally question the morality of a government-sanctioned industry that revolves around killing unborn babies and selling their fetal remains. Societal changes such as these please me, but I am perplexed by the nation’s silence regarding the racial and partisan dimensions of the abortion issue.
