Barack Obama is the most abortion-friendly president to ever park his slippers in the private living quarters of the White House. No other president has supported not only abortion, but in addition to refusing to sign a bill that would mandate medical care for babies born alive in botched abortions, has called unwanted pregnancies a “punishment,” seems enamored with Planned Parenthood, and supports the brutal act of late-term partial-birth abortion.
When 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the black youth who was shot to death in Sanford, Florida, by George Zimmerman in self-defense, Obama, as a father, identified with the boy and publicly said that Trayvon could have been his son.
It’s curious that the president viewed this young black man as someone who could have been his child, because as black babies are systematically slaughtered in abortion mills all over America, the president apparently doesn’t have the ability to see that any one of those innocent, helpless unborn infants could also have been his child.
Recently the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Office of Vital Statistics released a report entitled Summary of Vital Statistics 2012 The City of New York, Pregnancy Outcomes. What the data revealed was that in 2012, the year that Barack Obama was reelected, there were more black babies aborted in New York City than were born.
That bears repeating: There were more black babies aborted in New York City than were born.
In NYC in 2012, the total number of unborn infants that made it safely out of the wombs of women aged 15-49 was 123,231. This calculates out to be a rate of 14.8 babies who lived per 1,000 women. According to the summary, this “was the lowest rate since 1979.”
In 2010 that number “reported by known race/ethnicity” was 80,274, which means the difference between 2010 and 2012 is that in the Big Apple, 42,957 additional human beings were denied the right to life, or a little more than two and a half 16,000-seat sports arenas’ worth of children who would never see the light of day.
In 2012 among non-Hispanic black women living in New York City, there were 6,570 more abortions than there were live children being born.
So out of 56,086 black children conceived, 31,328 were aborted and 24,758 were allowed to live. Even more horrifying was the statistic that there were 73,815 total abortions of babies of all races and ethnicities, which means that the 31,328 aborted black babies made up 42.4% of all the abortions.
That number is especially troubling because in a city of approximately eight million people, in 2010 non-Hispanic blacks made up only 25.5% of the total population.
What is the rationale behind President Obama supporting the unfettered slaughter of unborn children belonging to a black constituency that has been unwavering in their support of his presidency? Is that the thanks future generations of black Americans get from our nation’s first black president?
