"What we have called our 'teen pregnancy' crisis is not really about teenagers. Nor is it really about pregnancy. It is about the decline of marriage. . . .You can read Gallagher’s entire report for yourself. For decades now, the demographic approach of "white supremacists" (following the lead of Margaret Sanger) has been to promote efforts to suppress the birth rates of poor minorities -- a campaign based on what more properly could be called fear than hate, but it doesn’t matter what you call it. Hate and fear are related emotions, both of which are contrary to my religion
"What has changed most in recent decades is not who gets pregnant, but who gets married . . . The single biggest change in recent decades has been the declining proportion of pregnant single teens who marry."
As many authors -- among them Ben Wattenberg and Mark Steyn – have explained, the root of the West’s demographic crisis, crucially relevant to many public policy issues, is the collapse of the birth rate since the 1960s. The West has embraced what has been called a "Culture of Death."
The consequences of this anti-life philosophy are predictable.
"A culture that no longer has a point of reference in God loses its soul and loses its way, becoming a culture of death."
– John Paul II, Jan. 1, 2001
The horrible reality that the abortion rate among black women far exceeds the rate for other groups -- and if you'll read that Fox News story, you'll find you all you need to know about Planned Parenthood's appeal to "white supremacists" -- is an inevitable consequence of our nation's embrace of the Culture of Death.
"I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days . . ."
– Deuteronomy 30:19-20
For the record: I'm against that, too. And I have six children.
