GOP Congressman to Obama: You’re Racist Against Black Children
As the wheels continue to fall off the Romney campaign, Republicans are trying to do what they can to distract attention. One such Republican is Kansas Congressman Tim Huelskamp, who decided that accusing President Obama of racism against black children was more important than discussing the events currently unfolding in the Muslim world. Rep. Huelskamp told a crowd at the Voters Value Summit yesterday that Obama’s support for Planned Parenthood is akin to supporting slavery:
Like the pro-slavery forces who invaded Kansas, the pro-abortion forces in Washington and elsewhere want us to believe that abortion is not murder — that being born is worse than death, that the unborn baby is property, not a person. We’ve heard that before — 150 years ago..
Rep. Huelskamp then went on to assail Planned Parenthood as a place designed to kill black and brown babies:
And not shockingly, we see this administration opposing any reductions in taxpayer funding to the one private corporation, the largest abortion business in the entire country — Planned Parenthood. Would not allow any single reductions, more than $300 million tax dollars to this entity. And ladies and gentlemen, I am the adoptive father of four children, each of them either — each of them either black, Hispanic, Native American, and I am incensed that this president pays money to an entity that was created for the sole purpose of killing children that look like mine — a racist organization, and it continues specifically to target minorities for abortion destruction. Shame on this president and shame on that party.
Even though the timing of the Congressman’s comments does draw suspicion, it is true that, according to the Centers for Disease Control( CDC ), black women have three times as many abortions as white women. Some experts wonder what the impact of these abortions has had on both black population and the health of black women.
In the year the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, 1973, there were 11 abortions per 1000 women aged 15 to 44. Eight years later, that number doubled for the same group to 22. In terms of the total number of abortions, 615,831 legal abortions took place in 1973; 1,300,760 in 1981.
