Why African-Americans Accept Abortion

In Abortion on June 12, 2009 at 6:22 am

The acceptance of abortion by African-Americans is one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century.

Abortion is nothing new and the reasons for it can be found rooted in the Church’s failure to consistently and effectively demonstrate the love of Christ in the terms of James 1:27.

“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

Until the quality of life for women is improved by the practical applications of unconditional love, many woman will continue to be attracted to the false sense security abortion provides.

Abortion is not just another surgical or medical procedure that is hygienic and safe.

Abortion is an intrinsically evil act that gravely violates the dignity of an innocent human being by taking his or her life.

Abortion gravely wounds the dignity of those who support it and leaves those who commit it in profound psychological and moral trauma.

Marginalizing abortion marginalizes the sanctity of human life itself and dehumanizes the members of any society.

The freedom, independence, empowerment and sense of security promised women by abortion is a lie.

Can equality for women be achieved at the expense of murdering their children?

Of course not.

Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety.”

Abortion is oxymoronic, a “cruel kindness” if you will.

Abortion is the lie that promises to improve the “quality of life” at the “expense of life”.

Embracing abortion as a necessary social policy to guarantee life would ultimately result in the end of life.

Given that according to the 2006 U.S. Census the African-American community is no longer replacing itself.

The acceptance of abortion in the African-American community is a form of racial suicide.

During the Civil Rights movement African-American’s were willing to be hosed down by Fire Departments, bitten by dogs, beaten by police officers, unjustly incarcerated, financially ruined and lynched by racist white folk to secure access to water fountains, restrooms and seats in the front of the bus.

I believe most of us would assume that African-American’s would do more for their posterity than they would for the right to use a urinal.

However, if you assume this to be true you’d be wrong.

Today an African-American child has less than a 50% chance of being born.

Every 72 seconds an African-American baby’s life is terminated by abortion.

At this rate, the African-American race will be in danger of extinction by the year of our Lord two thousand one hundred (2100).

All this and African-American Pastors are strangely silent regarding the issue of abortion.

I wonder why?

Such silence allows the African-American Pastors to trivialize abortion by equating the killing of babies with other evils in the world when the numbers from pro-abortion communities clearly prove there is no comparison.

Such silence allows the African-American Pastors to politicize abortion by comparing Democrats to Republicans as if winning such a contest will bring our dead babies back to life.

For the record, since 1973 abortion alone, accounts for over fifty (50) million prenatal murders.

According to Father Frank Pavone’s June 11th, 2009 Blog entitled “One Solitary Child” …

“Worldwide, there are 42 million abortions every year.

That means that in the last thirty years, there have been over 1.5 billion abortions! 1.5 billion!

That’s the equivalent of approximately one quarter of the entire population of the planet!

One quarter of the earth’s population, murdered, snuffed out, gone.”

Such silence from the African-American pulpit allows Pastors to avoid wrestling with their congregation over two (2) potentially Church splitting and/or job threatening issues:

1. The biblical truth about abortion and

2. Why they support a President who does not publicly support the biblical truth about abortion and other biblically defined evils.

In my opinion, such silence from men called and ordained by God Himself to preach an uncompromising gospel at all cost, is just inexcusable.

Again, such silence from the African-American pulpit allows the race card to be played in the Black Church and the discussion to be moved from murdering children to whether or not abortion is a Civil Rights issue.

Yes, much has changed since the Civil Rights movement.

Segregation is illegal in all public schools and most private places.

While discrimination still exists in many hearts today, our country has come closer to the ideals of liberty and justice.

Still, why does it appear that African-Americans are more than willing to sacrifice their posterity for prosperity?

To put it bluntly, it appears…

The more affluent African-Americans have become, the fewer children we want.

The higher our material expectations rise, the more we perceive children prevent us from achieving them.

The more affluent African-Americans have become, the less inclined we are to take risks which might destroy our quality of life.

The more affluent African-Americans have become, the more we tend to only associate with the rich and identify with their lifestyle.

Thus, in a divided society like the United States of America, affluence creates materially comfortable prisons, emotionally isolated people and morally bankrupt protocols.

The Bible puts it this way in 1st Timothy 6:10:

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

1st John 3:8 teaches us that “… the reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the work of the devil.”

Since torturing babies to death is incontestably the work of the devil, abortion is incontrovertibly evil and the benefits abortion promises are ALL lies.

Still, why can’t African-Americans see this?

Oh we can see it.

There is no doubt that “momma is pregnant with child”.

There is no question that a baby, an innocent human being is murdered every time an abortion takes place.

The Biological Evidence is overwhelmingly clear.

Human biology has been incredibly revealing.

The biological evidence for the humanity of the unborn child is undeniable, and even advocates of abortion rights now admit this.

Abortion is simply prenatal murder.

In light of Planned Parenthood’s founder’s (i.e. Margaret Sanger) racist and eugenics past, abortion is no less than womb lynching.

The facts are in now and it is painfully obvious who the baby is and what abortion does to him or her.

Oh I can assure you, African-Americans can and do see this.

So why is there such a difference between what we as African-Americans know to be true in our hearts and how we vote?

How can African-Americans consider themselves more religious than the U.S. population as a whole and support the shedding of innocent blood?

Read Proverbs 6:16-17 …

“These six (6) things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven (7) are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood.”

St. Francis of Assisi once said “Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.”

In other words, it is time for the Church to speak the truth in love by meeting both the physical and spiritual needs of people.

I believe the answer is not in the White House, but in the Church House.

I believe when the Church becomes relevant in the lives of the people …

The Word of God will once again be relevant in the hearts of the people …

And when the Word of God is relevant in the hearts of the people …

I believe abortion, anywhere and everywhere this evil exists, will come to an end.

So join me and let’s go to work.

  1. Thanks for sharing this prophetic word.

    • I am willing and have taken part in the 40 Days for Life prayer in front of an abortion mill. I challenge my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to take part in this endeavor and thus clear a path to heaven for themselves. This time of Lent is the time to get right with God who sent his only Son to suffer and die for our sins. Abortion is a mortal sin punishable for eternal life in hell.

  2. The laws Hoye is breaking at abortion clinics are there to PREVENT TERROR.

    I wonder how Hoye’s perspective would change if HE had to live like Dr. Tiller, behind guarded gates and bullet-proof glass.

    Maybe someone will walk into Hoye’s church, and shoot Hoye in the face, as the right-to-life movement did to Dr. Tiller.

    I hope so. Even better, someone should spare Hoye but kill other members of his family.

    “Remember, don’t do anything dramatic to a protester at an abortion clinic. That would be bad publicity for the clinic. All together, kids, repeat after me: ‘Pick one protester and follow him home!’ That way, you can include his family in your counterprotest.”

    • Do you honestly think He is doing TERROR? HE’s holding a sign PEACEFULLY sharing with women a different OPTION then murdering their child. Furthermore, The Pro-Life movement has condemned the act of killing Tiller, So please don’t tell me or anyone else it was praised by Pro-Life people.

    • Police has been notified and expect an arrest for felony death threats!

    • The right-to-life movement didn’t kill Dr. Tiller. It was a violent act carried out by a man, Scott Roeder, who “suffers from bouts of mental illness” as stated in the investigation.

      A true right-to-life advocate respects all lives – every form, age, and beliefs (whether in agreement or opposed to their own). A true right-to-life advocate would have respected the life of Dr. Tiller, as well as, the life of the unborn. I’ve only met Rev. Walter Hoye once but remember his encouragement for peace and respect for the opposition. He was also one of the first to reach out to ask for prayer for Dr. Tiller and his family after news of the horrific shooting.

      One wonders the mental stability of any person who encourages physical violence towards an individual and their family as an answer to a situation or form of revenge. The anger and despair you feel is not normal, please seek help/professional counseling. Not so much for Rev. Hoye’s sake, but for yours and your family.

    • Excuse me, but that IS stalking, and it’s quite illegal.

  3. Paul Hill’s wife, Karen, and kids, Justin, Gloria, and Joy, worship at River Oaks PCA in Germantown Tennessee.

    Let’s hope this business of people shooting others in their churches will become a pattern. A TWO-WAY pattern.

    Let’s hope Walter Hoye will be one of the first victims of the counterterror! Maybe the second victim, after Professor Robert P. George (Princeton).

    • WHY would you ever wish for a two-way pattern in any violence. That is not the answer. Most assuredly, that is not the way Jesus would tell us, is the way to lead anyone toward heaven.

      Shame on you. Study God’s Written Word.

  4. The previous comments aptly show the vicious mentality embraced by those who think nothing of killing the most vulnerable and helpless human beings – the unborn children. This is the mentality of our modern-day holocaust.

  5. “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10). Thank you for speaking the truth Walter. You are an inspiration.

  6. When Jesus healed the man with the withered hand in the Synagogue on the Sabbath, he was condemned and upbraided for breaking the Sabbath and they sought to kill him. Your message of life can heal the African American soul. May God give you courage and strength to keep speaking what he has revealed to your heart. The truth is startling and desperately needs to be shared. You are in our prayers!

  7. 1 Corinthians 9:16 (Show 1 Corinthians 9)
    For if I preach the gospel, that gives me no ground for boasting. For necessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!

    Let the church be on mission with the calling of Christ. Praying for those like Dr. Hoye who have a stance for the protection of life and for those who have a stance for the choice of life. All life is God’s to do with what He wills…

    We must be careful to avoid foolish fighting with the world and those of the world. It is anti-Christ. It would be better for Christians to be silent than to be arrogantly belligerent.

    May the peace of Christ reign. May the Gospel be the Goal! May Christ be lifted up as the church is the light of the world with hope, not fighting, bickering or violence.

    Although a worthy cause, the Gospel is not a fight against sin but a hope from the penalty of Sin in Christ alone that every human is in need of…

    Soli Deo Gloria
