"All lives matter. Womb = most dangerous place 4 black kids. Planned Parenthood = #1 killer of black babies. Civils rights begins [sic] in the womb."
For example, the Purdue Social Justice Coalition issued this statement:
This clever but illogical rhetorical ploy attempts to deter attention from considering fact to responding emotionally, with the intention of neglecting the fact that the overwhelming proportion of in utero infants aborted in the USA since 1973 are Black. Some additional facts:
- Minority women constitute ~13% of the U.S. female population (age 15-44), but they underwent ~36% of the abortions.
- The Alan Guttmacher Institute notes that Black women are 500%+ more likely that White women to have an abortion.
- On average, 1,876 Black babies are aborted daily in the United States. That translates into 15.5M+ Black infants denied their right to life.
Yes, the advocates are correct: Black lives matter…just as all life matters. However, the data and rhetoric indicate that the lives of unborn Black infants matter less to these advocates as well as to the nation's abortion industry, the federal government, and the Democratic Party, all of which promote this particular form of genocide. This form of state-sanctioned and racist genocide is wholly unacceptable in a nation that is dedicated to the inalienable rights of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
To call the Purdue Students for Life sexist, racist, and biased is nothing more than classical projection, a defense mechanism humans use to defend themselves against their own unpleasant impulses. How? By denying the existence of those impulses, all the while attributing them to others.
The activists should know this, assuming they have taken Psychology 101.
