Democrat wants to exempt black babies from pro-life law - Syne - Apr 20, 2019

Ohio Democrat Drafts Amendment Seeking To Make Black Babies Exempt From Pro-Life Law

A female Democrat state representative from Ohio, Rep. Janine Boyd, drafted an amendment last week seeking to have black babies exempted from pro-life legislation dubbed the "heartbeat bill," which bars babies with detectable heartbeats (around six weeks gestation) from being killed via abortion.

As reported by LifeNews, Boyd's bill "would have given an exemption to African American women to abort their unborn babies for any reason up to the state’s current abortion limit, 20 weeks.”

Ironically, Boyd "likened restrictions on abortion to slavery as she urged her fellow lawmakers to support the measure," the outlet noted.
...
Former Planned Parenthood executive turned pro-life advocate Abby Johnson ripped Boyd's targeted amendment, snarking that "apparently a 38% national abortion rate in the African-American community isn’t enough."


"A female, African-American democratic state representative from Ohio presented this amendment to the Ohio Heartbeat bill. This amendment would have made an exception for African-American babies...because apparently a 38% national abortion rate in the African-American community isn’t enough," posted Johnson to Facebook. "The amendment was struck down 11-7."

“To reference owning humans as a defense of dismembering them is moral myopia. If it is wrong to own humans, it is also wrong to intentionally kill them,” said pro-life group Created Equal president Mark Harrington


So apparently because blacks were once slaves, it's okay to carve out a special exemption to allow them to kill their own. That sounds on par with most Democrat policies about the black on black murder rate, in cities like Chicago. Now they want to an affirmative action exception for state sanctioned killing of their own.

Can you say Margret Sanger and eugenics?

So no one had the stones to admit this is overt racism, huh?

Wanting to kill more black babies in the name of restitution for slavery.

Tells you everything you need to know about the democrat party.

How does that follow?

Anyway I know precious little about American politics. Seems like running for office never stops over there. Come to think of it, I think it's the norm for Canada too.

Just a hypothetical question. Don't judge me by it please. 

Let's say I'm a pregnant woman and I'm a slave or the legal property of someone else. Any child of mine will be born into slavery and become property also. If the means are there for me to abort would it be justifiable or homicide? Making this judgement not an enviable position to be in by any standards. I have read a couple documented histories of such events occurring during the slavery days. Whatever this black female politician is trying, can it be compared to abortion during the slavery era in America? 

On another note, not 100% sure but wasn't involuntary sterilization performed on black women in the USA during the 20th century? What political party (ies) were in power then?

Democrats generally make a big show about being the voice of and only hope for minorities, but then all their policies uniformly have the "unintended" consequences of hurting the people they purport to help. The percent of black people in the US hasn't appreciably increased for decades, and black babies are the most aborted. As long as they promote policies that control black population growth, through abortion and black on black violence, they can keep black people believing white Republicans are the boogeymen causing all their problems, keep them voting for their supposed "saviors", and keep feeling superior for gracing black people with their "help".

Plenty of people born into slavery have become free. Since you cannot foresee the future, who are you to decide that a child should have no chance at life at all? What this Democrat is wanting could definitely be compared to internalized racism, which certainly occurred during slavery...mostly by the house slaves. Being a black Democrat today is a similar circumstance.

The US history of forced sterilization is also a Democrat legacy.

The sterilization of the American Indian in the 60's and 70's ......more of the same?

If one administration starts it then why doesn't the other stop it when they have a chance?

That looks like it was done but bureaucrats, which in the US has been largely dominated by Democrats, and reinforced by public sector unions.
