Bill Bennett said like a Dalek from Doctor Who:
I do know that it’s true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could—if that were your sole purpose—you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down.
AH HA! Got you!
I have said for years that the real reason behind these abortion protests is that they fear whites will lose their majority status in America, and now we have proof. Don’t believe me? Just look where all the anti-abortion protests are, they are always in predominantly white neighborhoods. You will never see one in the inner city or barrios. If they were really concerned with stopping abortion don’t you think they would have their protests there also?
Meanwhile Mr. Bennett won’t even address this issue on his website; he has other people like Andrew McCarthy doing it. All his allies on the religious right are doing cartwheels, they’re spinning this Freudian slip so much. Fox’s Neil Cavuto is saying stuff like “he’s taken out of context,” and that he is “against all abortion.” Boy, I think I am getting dizzy from all this spin.
Mr. Bennett may have a sliver of a point, though. If all the unplanned pregnancies from all races, not just blacks, were aborted or prevented with the morning-after pill, we would be better off. Kids cost a hell of a lot of money to raise properly, and if you’re going to school and don’t have a lot of money coming in, you would be better off not having the child. I am not saying poor people shouldn’t have children, just that we should be fully prepared when we do.
Those on the religious right like to pretend that their morals are so selfless and good, but the reality is usually something different. There is a case in the Detroit area where two teenagers from a white rural town went to a Christian abortion counseling center. They were told by the frauds at the center that they needed their parents’ permission to get an abortion. This is, of course, a complete lie; they knew full well they didn’t. So the boy at the girl’s bequest repeatedly hit the girl in the stomach to induce an abortion. They eventually buried the dead baby in a field on the boy’s family farm. The boy was charged with murder and then sentenced to 200 hours of community service at the same counseling center that lied to him and the girl in the first place.
Bennett and others like him in the anti-contraception crowd should come clean and admit their real motivations and stop hiding behind the Bible.
