Two days ago, I read a report on the Alliance Defending Freedom webpage about a "friend-of-the-court brief it filed Monday with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, urging it to reject the NAACP's lawsuit against an Arizona bill that prohibits sex- and race-based abortions."
How can this be? A civil rights organization that has as its objective 'to eliminate race prejudice' has become an advocate for aborting babies if the 'race' or gender is undesirable! Ludicrous is not even close to describing such duplicitous madness!
The NAACP, founded in 1909 by four liberal white abolitionists, still has the following objective listed on its website.
"The NAACP's principal objective is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of minority group citizens of United States and eliminate race prejudice. The NAACP seeks to remove all barriers of racial discrimination through the democratic processes."
If this double-dealing, fraudulent advocacy of gender and race-based abortion is not evil enough, then consider the unbelievable devastation of abortion in the Black community. John Piper remarks on the disparity of abortion in minority populations.
"The de facto effect (I don't call it the main cause, but net effect) of putting abortion clinics in the urban centers is that the abortion of Hispanic and Black babies is more than double their percentage of the population. Every day 1,300 black babies are killed in America. Seven hundred Hispanic babies die every day from abortion. Call this what you will--when the slaughter has an ethnic face and the percentages are double that of the white community and the killers are almost all white, something is going on here that ought to make the lovers of racial equality and racial harmony wake up."
A summary statement from the Abortion73 website makes the duplicity of the NAACP's objective 'to eliminate racism' even more starkly apparent.
"Whatever the intent of the abortion industry may be, by functional standards, abortion is a racist institution. In the United States, black children are aborted at nearly four times the rate as white children and Hispanic children don't fare much better."
Abortion infects our whole society and continues to keep us morally divided. That the NAACP has chosen to take upon itself a fight to maintain the ability of minority mothers to abort their babies, simply because the baby is of the 'wrong' race or gender, personifies both hypocrisy and evil. NAACP, heal thyself.
