Thursday, October 10, 2002 AD Abortion and Race Rudy Carrasco of Urban Onramps blogged yesterday about the higher rate of abortions among blacks and Hispanics. Since Urban Onramps doesn't have a comment system (hint, hint!), I'll post my comments here.
The statistics reminded me of something chilling a friend once told me. He said that before he became a Christian, he believed in abortion specifically because it would kill more black babies. Of course racist eugenics was one of the founding principles of the pro-abort movement, but nobody thinks about that or admits it now.
But there is hope. If the God of grace can redeem a heart as hateful as my friend's was, is anything too difficult for Him? Can He not bring sanity back to this death-crazed culture? Have mercy upon us, O Lord!
