Abortion as a positive good: How the abortion movement echoes radical slavery rhetoric

In February 1837, South Carolina Senator John C. Calhoun changed the tone of the cultural, religious, political, and social war over slavery by declaring human bondage a “positive good.” Most members of the generation of Americans who created the United States government, by contrast, saw slavery as an unfortunate legacy of the colonial period. A few in Georgia and South Carolina were indifferent to its moral status but committed to its economic benefits. Many others hoped that the new government might eventually put slavery on the road to extinction.

    Well….as the chances of a black child becoming a criminal ….a murdering good for nothing rap singer wannabe drug dealing rapist and the odds are very very high versus the whites and other ethnics in the USA then of course objectively dispassionately then black abortion IS a “good”.
    Bear in mind that the blacks do this to themselves…..there is NO coercion by whitey.
    They are what the Aussies call a busted arse culture….nevertheless I am waiting to hear blacks admit this.
    Black lives matter!
    So show me.

    • Martin Luther King whose niece is avowedly against abortion.

      There are many reasons why pro-abortionists push for abortion for racial minorities and lower classes and none of them have to do with the betterment of anyone’s lot.

      Scratch a pro-abortionist and so forth.

        Who needs the “racial minoritues” breeding here, anyway?

    If some bint wants to kill her unborn baby, I don’t care. We have much bigger fish to fry.
    The fact is, you can’t criminalize it and have women enjoying rights against unreasonable search and seizure at the same time. It would be a violation of the 4th Amendment in the USA.

    • Property rights then, eh?

      Do Palestinian women have property rights, as well? I mean – their kids make pretty good bombs.

    Slavery in pre civil war America was not economically feasible over the long term until the invention of the cotton gin which efficiently removed the seeds from the cotton bolls. Even then, slave owning was not unlike today’s crony capitalism with its phony “welcome mat out for migrants”, being rare on a large scale but corrupt to the core..
