The so-called “pro-life” advocates love using Black women and children to further their agenda, but in reality they couldn’t care less about us. They don’t give a damn about us when we’re walking this earth, but I’m supposed to believe they give a care about Black babies? I’m supposed to believe they actually care about the health and welfare of pregnant Black women?
They don’t care about Black families in the hood, struggling to live. The same people want to eliminate welfare and housing programs that keep those families afloat. They don’t care about the single Black mothers doing everything they can for their kids. They call those women “welfare queens” and degrade and demonize them at every turn.
To them, Black single mothers are nothing but whores who never should have spread their legs and a blight upon the country. Our children are nothing but drug dealers, thugs, or future drug addicts and prostitutes who need to be caged or put down like dogs. That is, until one of us gets pregnant and they need a new face for their “pro-life” campaign. Then our babies are “precious children.” Then they pretend to be worried about the future of the Black race. Only then do we need to “protect ourselves” against “extinction” by never having abortions.
Only then do they care oh so much about racism and they seek to warn us about how racist Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, and abortions are. Well I, for one, am completely fed up with their bullshit. I can see right through them. They don’t care about Black people and they never have.
Stop using Black bodies as props and pawns.
I was tired today and decided to give myself a bit of a break by moving something from Medium to here. I feel it’s a pretty important piece and needs to be seen wherever it can.
