Today in our society the worst thing you can call anyone is “racist.” It denotes that a person is prejudice against people of other races and shows or feels discrimination and believes that a particular race is superior to another. To combat racism we have seen a proliferation of diversity classes being included in educational curriculum and job training. We are taught today about micro-aggressions or the little ways we show racism toward a different race. No matter how much micro-aggression there is, the most reprehensible form of racism on the planet is abortion. This is a racism that murders little defenseless lives before they ever see the light of day. It is a racism that says these lives don’t matter.
It is precisely what Hillary Clinton stated on national television in the last Presidential Debate of 2016. She unmistakably stated she supported the killing of babies through the entire period of gestation and delivery. She made it crystal clear that these little babies have no rights whatsoever, as long as they are inside their mothers’ bodies, even if they are seconds from being born. Americans listening to her were horrified, and it is one of the reasons she lost the election. People deep down know that her remarks are completely racist toward this vulnerable group of Americans.
The Supreme Court in the Dred Scott case of 1857 that took place right here in St. Louis was dead wrong. That case stated Black slaves were property without rights as free persons. When Abraham Lincoln took the oath of office as our 16th president, he was determined to see that the dreaded institution of slavery end. He, along with many other Americans, knew that the Supreme Court was wrong on that ruling, just as they were wrong in Roe v. Wade of 1973 which did not give the unborn the rights of free persons. The day, however, is coming when this decision will be overturned. It took a civil war and 600,000 soldiers dying to free the slaves, and reversing Roe v. Wade will not be easy. We cannot, however, give up until these little ones are also free to live the lives God ordained for them.
Little by little people are beginning to see that abortion is a horrible thing. Thanks to the advances in technology no one dares argue that life begins at conception. Young women now see their little babies before their eyes and decide to keep them. People are even beginning to see abortion as the form of racism that it truly is.
Let us pray that this racism against the unborn will come to an end. Let us pray that more Crisis Pregnancy Centers will be established in the inner cities of America. Let us pray that these little babies will be given to the millions of Americans who want to adopt them and give them a loving home.
