UFI Reader Poll: “Is it ‘racist’ to point a finger at abortion?”

UFI Reader Poll: “Is it ‘racist’ to point a finger at abortion?”

Here’s last week’s question:

“Is it racist to point out that in New York City, 60 percent of all African-American pregnancies end in induced abortion?”

Here is the UFI reader response:

3 percent                            Yes, it is racist

97 percent                           No, it’s just stating facts

0 percent                           Not racist, but very insensitive

United Families International representatives were at the UN in New York when the controversial billboard “The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb” was hanging in Lower Manhattan.  While visiting with an Ambassador from an African country’s mission, he explained that he had heard about the billboard and was puzzled by the reaction.  He couldn’t understand why it was a problem for New Yorkers.  “It’s stating the truth isn’t it?” he said.  “Is it racist to inform people that there’s a problem that needs to be considered?”

We had the same thought.  In New York, 60 percent of all African American pregnancies are aborted.  That’s a tragedy that needs some attention.  It appears that another billboard, this time in Chicago, is receiving the same reaction – or at least there are some very vocal people.  Perhaps the truth hurts, but so do unborn children.
