In 1973, in the form of Supreme Court judicial legislating in Roe v. Wade1 and Doe v. Bolton with no government action to nullify them, our government decided that an unborn child could be killed at any time throughout a woman’s entire pregnancy, for any reason. In that same year they also passed The Endangered Species Act of 1973 which provided steep penalties for harming, wounding, or killing any animal listed as an endangered species. One could receive up to $50,000 in fines and up to one year imprisonment for violating this law. Costing billions of dollars and depriving thousands of American landowners of their right to private property, The Endangered Species Act of 1973 is, just as Roe v. Wade, a monumental infringement of the Constitution, depriving life and property (two things actually guaranteed to humans).
The incredible irony is that, according to Justice Harry Blackmun’s majority opinion3 in Roe v. Wade (Section IX): “We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins.” This illogical and audacious claim, in light of the sweeping national legalization of the murder of innocent human life, is the epitome of judicial activism and ill-thought justification. In this case, such an extremely (and scientifically ludicrous) low bar was set for humans, whereas no one has to even prove that an animal species is truly in danger of extinction to have their lives fully protected by The Endangered Species Act of 1973.
Pro-abortion radicals will protest any factual campaign against their propaganda. They cannot rely upon the truth but only emotional invective intertwined with total avoidance or blatant distortion of history. They rely, instead, on accusing us of racism…of black people calling themselves a different species. Since the pro-abortion opposition deliberately distorts simple truths, it’s understandable that they refuse to acknowledge that the campaign is created and led by African-Americans who, of course, don’t consider themselves or any other human anything less than. ‘Species’ doesn’t mean animal and despite many ignoring this simple fact, pro-abortion opposition misses the broader point. Black children are an Endangered Species–part of the precious human species that is far more impacted by death due to induced abortion than any other racial demographic (3x more than whites and 2x more than all other races combined). We’re not stating that the black population will become extinct, but that unborn lives are endangered (‘in danger’) of being killed–1.2 million every year (over 400,000 African-American lives alone). There are too many aborted. One is too many. There are other options available which we advocate that truly care for the physical and spiritual needs of the would-be mother and father and the unborn child both pre- and post-birth (especially through Pregnancy Resource Centers). Pro-abortion radicals’ feigned outrage is about vernacular instead of where a group (such as SisterSong) that represents minorities should focus their outrage: the destruction of innocent life and beautiful potential in the black community.
