In World War 2 some 50-80 million people died. The Holocaust, the actual planned extermination of people by the Nazis resulted in 12-14 million deaths, about half Jewish, the others slavs, political opponents, communists, performers and anyone else considered an enemy of Aryan rule.
In the United States at the height of slavery, Slave owners held captive around 4,000,000 black people as slaves. During the Civil War, 620,000 men died in battle, or roughly the same amount as every other American war combined, including WW1, WW2 and Viet Nam. A full 2% of the American population, or 1 in 50 died in the conflict.
I am sure you know about World War 2, the Holocaust and the Civil War fought to free 4 million slaves. But what about the ongoing American Holocaust? Since Roe vs. Wade in 1973, over 56 million abortions have occurred in the United States. Black children are aborted at four to five times the rate of other children. Though only 17% of the population, they represent half the abortions.
In the United States, roughly 9,000 murder victims are identified each year. Half of them are black victims. 93% of the perpetrators are also black. Why are these numbers not a clarion call for change?
We have lost around 28 million potential black American citizens in the last 50 years to abortion. Seven times the number of slaves prior to emancipation, and twice the total number of dead in the holocaust, four times the numbers of Jews slain in the holocaust.
In murders, we lost another 250,000 young black people, many at the hands of their own fellows.
It’s time we stop race baiting over comments made on blogs or by politicians or by sports figures and look at the horror of our own American Holocaust. Whether you are pro-life or pro-choice, I plead with you to consider the socio-economic impacts of a country that eliminates the same number of its citizens as the entire world lost in WW2. And, like WW2, the victims are the poor and the minorities.
Something has to be done. We have lost two generations of young black Americans that could have done so much for this country. Help support adoption, birth control, strong families, counseling, domestic abuse prevention and our churches in needy communities. If we have to, start small. Adopt one child. Pay for one family to choose life and adoption over abortion. Help one family have housing and food.
Will history sweep under the rug one of the greatest atrocities in cost of life? Is this magnitude of impact what any pro-choice advocate wants? Let’s work together to stand up. We need the next generation. ALL of the next generation, not just the wealthy, not just the white, but everyone.
How many black leaders and heroes like the following have we missed out on their lives due to our holocaust?
