Do Aborted Black Lives Matter?

Do Aborted Black Lives Matter?

New York City health statistics show that more black babies are aborted than are born each year. In the United States, there are 138 abortions for every 1,000 live births. But among blacks, the figure is 501 abortions for every 1,000 live births. Logic indicates that if black lives mattered, BLM would show some concern for the disproportionate rate of abortions among people who are black.  Yet, Alicia Garza, a co-founder of BLM states that “reproductive justice”—that is, abortion—“is very much situated within the Black Lives Matter movement.”

Bishop Joseph Strickland, of Tyler, Texas, has condemned BLM because of its announced threat to the good of society. On Independence Day, 2020, he cited a BLM statement declaring its plan to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement.” Bishop Strickland states that the BLM organization “fails to acknowledge that the breakdown of the nuclear family, which disproportionately affected blacks in America, was at the heart of the downward spiral of crime, poverty, and dependence in which many blacks found themselves.” Ryan Bomberger, a man of color, has inaugurated Radiance Foundation, a life-affirming foundation. He posted on his website, “Top Ten reasons I’ll never support the #Black Lives movement.”

A co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, a Black Muslim named Yusra Khogali, has argued that white people are “recessive defects” and mused about how their race could be “wiped out”. She has called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “a white supremacist terrorist” and has urged crowds to “rise up and fight back.”

Cardinal Napier has questioned whether black lives matter even to the organizers of Black Lives Matter. He cited their indefensible allegiance with Planned Parenthood.

“Is there any good reason,” Cardinal Napier asked, “other than political correctness, why abortion is not defined as and declared immoral and illegal, as the hate crime of our era?” Absolute silence concerning the protection of black babies in the womb does not, logically, show that black lives matter.
