One of the great stains on our history was the use of lynching as a form of "vigilante justice" usually driven by mob behavior in the South and West.
What is striking is that lynching came to a gradual end in 1968 at about the time abortion was decriminalized, starting in Colorado in 1967, California in 1968, and New York in 1970. Roe v. Wade followed in 1973.
Since 1967, the best estimates are that there have been som 24 million black abortions out of a total of over 64,000,000 abortions currently.
According to a study by the Tuskegee Institute, a total of 4,743 lynchings occurred between 1882 and 1968 . Of these, 3,446 (73%) of the victims were blacks and 1,297 (27%) were whites. During and after Reconstruction, estimates are that another 1500 blacks were lynched as part of the effort to regain white political dominance in the South.
That would bring the total of black lynchings since the Civil War to 4,946, and the ratio between abortions and lynchings to a horrifying 5,000 to 1.
In short, as bad as lynching was, abortion is 5,000 thousand times more damaging to the black community than lynching. If lynching was genocidal, abortion certainly is far more so.
According to a Wickipedia article on lynching, "the Democratic Party relied on paramilitary 'White Line' groups . . . to terrorize, intimidate and assassinate African American and white Republicans in an organized drive to regain power."
The report added, "Once Democrats regained power in Mississippi, Democrats in other states adopted the 'Mississippi Plan' to control the election of 1876, using informal armed militias to assassinate political leaders, hunt down community members, intimidate and turn away voters, effectively suppressing African American suffrage and civil rights. In state after state, Democrats swept back to power.From 1868 to 1876, most years had 50 to100 lynchings." See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lynching_in_the_United_States
As reprehensible as lynching was, abortion has replaced it as the primary means to suppress black political freedom. And it has done so far more insidiously by posing as a way of helping blacks socially and economically.
I estimate that the total economic loss to the black community at over $19 trillion dollars in lost GDP from abortions since 1967. Every abortion eliminates a future worker, producer, taxpayer and consumer. In addition, it has a major "echo" effect by eliminating all future descendants of those who were aborted. The economic and social damage done by abortion echoes down the centuries.
In short, it represents damage to the black community that can never be undone. All we can hope to do is stop it by changing hearts and minds, and eventually bringing abortion to an end -- like its tragic, genocidal twin: lynching.
Abortion: Fast Track to Economic Suicide
By Dennis M. Howard
Economic conservatives are worried about the runaway tax and spend potential of the federal government. But that's not even half the real story.
What the eco-conservatives are overlooking is the hidden cost of federal funding of abortion as part of an "essential benefits package" that will be imposed on everyone unless it is explicitly excluded.
If approved, taxpayers will be forced to pay for other people's abortions whether they like it or not. And the $1.6 trillion the eco-conservatives are worried about will only be the tip of a very large iceberg.
That's because abortion has a huge hidden economic cost. It's the loss in future GDP represented by all those babies who never had a chance to grow up to become the future workers, consumers, taxpayers, and parents the nation needs to sustain future economic growth.
This is something the younger generation should start worrying about. People under 40 will still be paying taxes 40 to 80 years from now, so they will take the biggest hit from this phenomenon. And since their numbers have already been depleted by abortion, that means even fewer shoulders on which to rest a much bigger burden.
We've already had over 64 million abortions since 1967. That's a whopping 30% of our under 50 population. If we had a war that took that kind of toll, we would have run up the white flag decades ago. The pro-aborts just don't give up that easily.
What they don't want to admit is that people are our country's most important renewable resource. Ever since Roe v. Wade, we've been depleting that resource with abandon.
If all those kids had lived, we wouldn't be in the mess we're in.
Looking forward, the picture is even grimmer especially if we keep subsidizing abortion. That's exactly what the pro-choice politicians propose to do by sending you the bill for other people's abortions.
GDP per capita is now about $60,000 a year, and has been compounding at a rate of 4% a year. Per capita GDP is a measure that includes everyone from the cradle to the grave. But every baby we abort is one less contributor to GDP, not just for today, but for a lifetime of about 80 years..
Every child we abort today costs us $25 million in future GDP over a lifetime. Abortion also takes a huge toll of other jobs. Babies don't compete for jobs with the rest of us for their first 20 years, but they create jobs for everybody else: doctors, nurses, teachers, homebuilders, retailers, you name it.
And then there is the "echo effect." None of those 60 million will be around to have children in the next generation, so that 60 million loss will echo down the centuries for generations to come. It took Europe 250 years to recover the "Black Death," it will take us at least that long to recover even if families starting having 3 or more children.
If there ever was a major job killer, it is the baby-killing industry.
But you have a choice. If you want bigger tax bills, a grimmer future for your children and grandchildren, and more government encroachment on your right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, just go back to sleep and forget you ever read this.
