Skip to comments.Kerry's abortion doubletalk
Posted on 07/31/2004 12:11:54 PM PDT by wagglebee
Puzzling Democrats and other pro-abortion voters everywhere, John Kerry proclaimed to ABC News and its viewers that he believes life begins at conception. He made similar confusing statements in Iowa earlier this month when appealing to a largely Catholic based community.
When asked to explain the apparent contradiction of his recent statements with his well-known and public support of abortion, he gave a Kerry-classic answer, replete with nuance and doubletalk.
He "clarified" his statements by distinguishing human life from personhood. His position is that the unborn child is not a person according to the law. Though human, the unborn child is not protectable human life. That means, Kerry adheres to and supports the decision made in Roe v. Wade. And for our non-French speaking audience, that means he undauntedly supports abortion.
This seriously flawed notion that someone can be human but not a person is not new. It was used most infamously by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1857 to justify slavery. In Dred Scott, the court didn't argue whether African Americans were human. The court argued that African Americans simply weren't persons under the law deserving rights and protection.
Here's exactly what the court had to say in 1857:
For more than a century before [the Negro has] been regarded as beings of an inferior order and altogether unfit ... they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect ... the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery ... bought and sold and treated as an ordinary article of merchandise and traffic, whenever a profit could be made.
Ironically, very few members of the black community see the similarities in the Kerry and Supreme Court position let alone the offense. To the contrary, John Kerry and the Democratic Party successfully court the majority of black voters. For example, Kerry assured black churchgoers that he shares their "common future, hopes and dreams." And when Kerry took his turn on stage to speak to the members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People at their most recent convention, he said the government needs to do more for African Americans to improve education, the economy and civil rights.
The question is how does his advocacy and love for African Americans square with his pro-abortion platform?
According to Black Genocide, more black children are killed by abortion than are born. In fact, in the last 30 years more than 25 percent of the black population has been aborted. That means twice as many African Americans have died from abortion than from AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer and heart disease combined. "Coincidently," 78 percent of the Planned Parenthood facilities are located in minority neighborhoods. And, 4 billion dollars has been paid to the abortion industry for killing black babies.
Truth be told, Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood and the Negro Project, wanted to use abortion to "restrict many believe exterminate the black population." In one letter she wrote, she said:
We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social service backgrounds and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.
So there you have it. Kerry and the Democratic Party successfully court one of the most important Democratic constituencies by promising to support and defend a scheme that targets them for death through abortion. Now under the political guise of ensuring their rights, Kerry defends his stand on abortion with the same arguments used by the Supreme Court of 1857 to deny black Americans their freedom.
In a final twist of irony, the NAACP compares the anti-abortion views of President Bush, who would truly protect the lives of African Americans, to the Taliban.
By the way, in October 1972, Kerry told the Lowell Sun, "I'm opposed to abortion."
More nuance anyone?
That's because Kerry and the other 'Rats doesn't care any more about blacks than the KKK does. Republicans really need to start doing a better job informing blacks and other minorities who their friends really are.
Human life, yes but not a person because according to the law:
the human in utero cannot get a social security number.
the human in utero cannot vote.
the human in utero cannot own property.
the human in utero is not obligated to purchase a seperate airline ticket when flying inside its' host.
Every time this cretin opens his mouth on abortion I get more sick to my stomach. The unborn are human but not persons? Only a moral degenerate could say something like that. What we need are a series of abortion debates between Bush and Kerry that are like the Lincoln-Douglas debates. Kerry could then define for us, what a human is and what a person is. I'd love to hear that mental midget explain that one to me. Basically, no matter what he came up with it would be an argument that would make Joseph Mengele proud. Jews are human, not persons, therefore experiments and genocide are perfectly OK.
Well, he had not had an abortion before he decided to the opposite...
This is a very dangerous person. His lies are satan yes satan smooth. The ratmedia will lie about anything to get him in.
Don't let this happen.
