According to the National Vital Statistics Report, Volume 68, Number 1 dated January 10th, 2019, the Total Fertility Rate (TFR) for Black Americans is 1.8, which is below the replacement level fertility rate of 2.1, the rate at which a generation can replace itself.
According to the National Vital Statistics Report, Volume 65, Number 5 dated June 30th, 2016, page 12, the total number of deaths in Black America from the thirteen leading causes of death in 2014 is 237,359. But according to the Guttmacher Institute’s Fact Sheet entitled “Induced Abortion in the United States“ (this is data directly from the abortion industry itself, data that the abortion industry is willing to admit to and publish, publicly), there were 259,336 Black American abortions in the same year.
Yeah, that’s more than all 13 leading causes of death put together.
Let me put it this way, in 2014, according to the National Vital Statistics Reports, Volume 64, Number 12 dated December 23, 2015, page fifteen, there were 640,562 Black American births. In the same year, there were 496,695 total Black American deaths. In other words, for every one Black American death, only 1.2 Black American babies were born. This is the Black America death to birth ratio and it is frightening.
According to the Violence Policy Center, a national nonprofit educational organization that conducts research on violence in America, there were 6,095 Black American homicides for the year 2014. But according to the Guttmacher Institute there were 259,336 Black Abortions in 2014. So when you set Black American homicides next to Black American abortions you’ll discover abortions in Black America are forty-two times the number of Black American homicides.
No, the news does not get better …
According to Dennis H. Howard, President of “The Movement For A Better America,“ a retired journalist and a market researcher who has been tracking the demographics of abortion for over 25 years, fewer children being born means that culture’s political and economic power will decline.
No kids. No future.
Howard states in his 2018 report Tough Days For Democrats For The Next Forty Years, “the harsh reality is that the victims of abortion are disproportionately Democrat. 25 states, mainly Republican, have had just 10% of all abortions. The other 25 states account for 90% of all abortions. And with a few exceptions, they have been traditionally Democratic blue states.”
Howard then gets right to his point. “There will be at least 4 million more missing voters in 2020 as a result of abortion. About 2.8 million of them would likely have voted Democratic. Yet the Democrats persist in their active support of abortion through all nine months. In effect, they are committing demographic suicide, but because of their ideological denial, they won’t wake up to this reality until the votes are in.”
Dennis, wait a minute, “demographic suicide?”
Howard steps up his point and says supporting “abortion appears on the surface to give the Democrats a twenty-four point lead among women voters compared to an eight point edge for Republicans among men voters. At least, that’s what the pollsters tell us. But the demographics of abortion turn that fact upside down. The truth is, half of all aborted babies are women who will never get a chance to vote. And that means more missing voters and declining margins for Democrats.”
Emotionally, I’m trying to hold on, Black America’s political and economic future is at stake here.
Howard drives home his point by saying, “nationally, abortion has taken the lives of 21 million future Black American voters. At least 14 million of these would be of voting age today. If they had voted the same way other Black American’s voted in 2016, Hillary would have won the presidency by 6 million more votes than Donald Trump.
Dennis, wait a minute, can we, as Black American’s, recover from this … “demographic suicide?” In other words, can we make all this up in time for the 2020 presidential election?
Howard says, “No! The democratic margins in the top 15 states have dropped by 6.9 million votes between 2008 and 2016, largely due to the impact of abortion on minority voting blocks. There is no way to make that up by 2020.”
Okay, I’m done.
Brothers, Howard is right. The reality is “you can’t bring back 40 million aborted babies over 18 who were denied their right to vote by Planned Parenthood with the support of all the leading Democrats.”
And when you realize the abortion toll has taken over 61 million lives or 30% of the under-50 generation, it’s clear (“Lord Have Mercy!“), extremely clear, that the time is now, right now, for Black America to ask the question …
“Why are we aborting our children?”
Don’t we all agree, that “our children, are our future?”
There are some nights, I can’t sleep. I just keep hearing Cecil Moore, the 1965 president of the Philadelphia NAACP chapter say: “Planned Parenthood’s plan is replete with everything to help the Negroes commit race suicide.”
Brothers, we need to talk …
I can’t quit …
I’m holding on to our Lord’s unchanging hand …
If we don’t do nothing else, we have got to end abortion.
