Congressional Black Caucus: Don't Tell Us Black Lives Matter!‏

Black Lawmakers Group May Seek Sanction of Congressman for Ruing High Abortion Rate in Black Community

Lawmaker Sean Duffy's Remarks Expressing Concern About Lives of Black Babies Called "Insensitive" and "Disgusting" by CBC Members

 

Members of the Project 21 black leadership network are rising to the defense of Wisconsin Republican Congressman Sean Duffy, who is under fire from the Congressional Black Caucus for remarks on the House floor expressing concern about the high abortion rate in the black community.

As reported by the Hill, this is what Duffy said:

Duffy during a House floor speech cited statistics showing high abortion rates in African-American populations and suggested black lawmakers aren't doing enough to reduce them.

"I hear a lot in this institution from minority leaders about how their communities are targeted," Duffy said, offering the Black Lives Matter movement's efforts to draw attention to police violence against blacks as an example. "But what I don't hear them talk about is how their communities are targeted in abortion."

"My liberal friends, Congressional Black Caucus members, talk about fighting for the defenseless, the hopeless, and the downtrodden. There is no one more hopeless and voiceless than an unborn baby, but their silence is deafening. I can't hear them. Where are they standing up for their communities, advocating and fighting for their right to life?" he said.

Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI), a CBC member, called Duffy's remarks "offensive," while CBC Chairman Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-NC) called them "disgusting."

The CBC is now considering whether to submit a privileged resolution in the House to condemn Duffy for his remarks. Project 21 members, however, say there is nothing to condemn: that Duffy is to be commended for his concern for black babies.

"The Congressional Black Caucus further makes itself irrelevant and a joke," said Project 21'sChristopher Arps , a St. Louis political consultant and the founder of Move-On-Up.org. "Most black people have no earthly idea that blacks have the highest amount of abortions per capita than any other ethnic group in this country. It's so bad that in 2014, blacks in New York City and Georgia had more abortions than live births. Now the CBC wants to condemn Rep. Duffy for telling the truth that the CBC doesn't seem to care by their silence. It seems they'd rather see little black babies aborted than anger the abortion lobby."

"There is no doubt that abortion providers like Planned Parenthood have cornered the market on aborting black babies," said Project 21's Jerome Hudson, a Georgia native and writer for Breitbart.com and other venues. "Non-Hispanic white women account for about 38.5 percent of the population, if you divide the number of all non-Hispanic whites by two. Using census and CDC data, that 38.5 percent of white women accounted for 36.8 percent of abortions in 2010."

"Conversely," Hudson continued, "non-Hispanic black women make up about 6.6 percent of the population. That's the black population divided by two. Using census and CDC data, non-Hispanic black women accounted for 35.7 percent of the abortions performed in 2010. That is a horrific disparity, especially considering less than that 6.6 percent consists of black women of actual childbearing age. These are facts the Congressional Black Caucus is committed to ignoring."

"I commend Sean Duffy for his comments and for his willingness to recognize that the 21st century holocaust -- subsidized abortion on demand -- targets all vulnerable babies regardless of color," said Project 21 Chairman Horace Cooper, a former U.S. House majority leader legal counsel and Virginia legal analyst. "Instead of a resolution of disapproval, the CBC should stand with the pro-life community and Rep. Duffy. Unborn babies are the most innocent, most defenseless category of victim imaginable -- and black babies are increasingly the most obvious targets. Even though blacks are only 13% of the population, nearly 40% of our babies are destroyed in the womb."

Project 21, a leading voice of black conservatives for over two decades, is sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research. Contributions to the National Center are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.

The history of Planned Parenthood is that the founder, Margaret Sanger, specifically said she wanted to wipe out the Black population.  She put this in writing.  It is one of the reasons why there are so many Planned Parenthood offices in Africa. 

If a woman is pregnant, and if it is an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy, it is up to her to decide what to do about it.  It has to be her decision, no one else's. 

Having said that, it is undeniable that Black communities have been targeted.  Black women have a disproportionately high number of hysterectomies.  I talk about my own experience here - I have had two different doctors at two different London hospitals try to force me to have a hysterectomy I neither needed nor wanted.  We were also targeted for depo provero in the 1970s and 1980s.

Black reproductive rights are a battleground and a point of struggle and yes, Black lives matter.
