America: You’ve Been Punked!!!

America, You've been punked if you believe the abortion debate is about women's rights. You've been punked if you believe the practice of abortion is racially neutral. You've been punked if you believe that Senator Harry Reids' outburst was historically, politically or socially accurate!!!! The abortion debate in America began with the question of what to do with the three million, now emancipated slaves. And the Supreme Court became one of the responders to that question.

The 1857 Dred Scott v. Sanford decision has long been an irritant for America’s Supreme Court. Nine men declared that “A free negro of the African race, whose ancestors were brought to this country and sold as slaves, is not a "citizen" within the meaning of the Constitution of the United States” because “when the Constitution was adopted, they were not regarded in any of the States as members of the community which constituted the State, and were not numbered among its "people or citizens."

Just four short years later, a war and a tithe of ten percent of her population ended America’s institutionalization of slavery. But the end of slavery did not herald equal rights for the enslaved and it was not until the passage of the 14th amendment of the Constitution in 1868 that the Supreme Court’s declaration that blacks were not and could not be citizens was undone.

America would not yield her rabid desire to treat her black citizens unequally and even before the war had ended, began institutionalizing segregation as a way of life, mandating separate but equal laws throughout the country. Once again the Supreme Court weighed in on the wrong side of the issue. In the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson decision that declared a constitutionally acceptable practice of segregation the Supreme Court affirmed that blacks could be treated inferiorily. It was not until almost one hundred years later, that the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 began to unravel that flawed decision.

Nine years later, the Supreme Court followed it’s pattern of denying citizenship and personhood to its citizens when it issued the Roe v. Wade decision, that denies the personhood of a child in the womb. They created a right of privacy that allowed the mother to choose to kill her child, placing that choice above the child’s constitutionally guaranteed right to life. According to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s July 2009 New York Times Magazine interview, there was a common understanding that because of growth in “populations we don’t want too many of” Roe allowed America to control the population by abortion. And we know through extensive research and documentaries like MAAFA21, that Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood identified the population as America's blacks.

Now, instead of correcting the racist patterns of enslavement and genocide encouraged by the Court, the United States is seeking to institutionalize black genocide by insisting that abortion be paid for by taxpayers through any health care bill that is passed. Majority Leader Harry Reid had the temerity to suggest that those opposing the institutionalization of abortion are the same as the Democrats that loosed the dogs and turned the water hoses on blacks protesting during the 60s. I beg to differ. It is the Harry Reid Democrats that are the same as those who opposed the end of slavery and segregation in America. It is the Harry Reid Democrats that have joined America’s elitists in insisting that the government now fund genocide with taxpayer dollars. It is the Harry Reid Democrats that are continuing the deception that abortion is a racially neutral and acceptable practice.
America you have been punked, tricked, and made fun of. Abortion is not about woman’s rights, it is about genocide, especially black genocide. I can only pray that America will finally end centuries of racism by implementing that great document called the Constitution as God intended. I can only pray that we will finally rise up and meet the declaration that all Americans are entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, first by ensuring that no health care bill allows for abortion and then by ending the practice of abortion in this great nation.
