The NAACP has never taken a position on abortion. We simply support a woman’s right to choose.

That sounds like a position, to me!

We built the global economy — by gutting our own.

Not long ago, the shirts, skirts, suits and dresses Americans wore were “Made in the USA” — in plants in the Carolinas, Georgia and Louisiana, where the lower wages, lighter regulations and air conditioning that came after World War II had attracted the factories from New England.

The American idea was that the 50 states and their citizens should compete with one another fairly. The feds set the health and safety standards that all factories had to meet, and imposed wage and hour laws. Some states offered lower wages, but there was a federal minimum wage.

How did we prevent companies from shutting down here and going to places like today’s Bangladesh to produce as cheaply as they could — without regard for the health and safety of their workers — and to send their products back here and kill the American factories?

From James Madison to the mid-20th century, we had a tariff.

The Equivalence of Slavery and Abortion

In order to condone slavery, you must dehumanize the slaves…render them either not human at all or not fully human.  Similarly, in order to condone abortion, we must completely dehumanize the infant in the womb.  The two crimes are equally abhorrent, yet at least the slaves were given, in most cases, life, family, food, shelter, and occupation.  The aborted unborn are given a horrible death in a cold, metal trash bin.

Father Pavone explains why abortion is really a civil rights issue

Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, addressing the recent (July 16) Couples for Christ National Pro Life Summit, in Chicago, delivered an inspiring, well informed and thoroughly Catholic speech to hundreds of attendees, who also got to hear from a number of other prominent pro-life leaders. (For more about this event, click here.)

Father Frank spoke of many things, but one particular comment, explaining how the issues of slavery, abortion, and civil rights are inextricably linked, was particularly noteworthy. To paraphrase this great pro-life activist and defender of human rights:

Many women seem to think (and many men apparently agree) that the fetus is the property of the woman, and she has a right to do with it, whatever she wishes.

I thought we had resolved that issue (the ownership of one human being, by another) a long time ago!

From the Catechism:

407 The doctrine of original sin, closely connected with that of redemption by Christ, provides lucid discernment of man’s situation and activity in the world. By our first parents’ sin, the devil has acquired a certain domination over man, even though man remains free. Original sin entails “captivity under the power of him who thenceforth had the power of death, that is, the devil”. Ignorance of the fact that man has a wounded nature inclined to evil gives rise to serious errors in the areas of education, politics, social and morals.

So it was that Satan gained control over the whole world and certain dominion over man. The entire process was, in a technical sense, legal but it certainly wasn’t right. God wasn’t pleased, either. Here, we learn of Satan’s destiny:

Genesis 3:14 – 15 And the Lord God said to the serpent: Because thou hast done this thing, thou art cursed among all cattle, and beasts of the earth: upon thy breast shalt thou go, and earth shalt thou eat all the days of thy life. I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.

The most important part (for us, at least) is the last line, where God speaks of a woman; the seed (offspring) of the woman and the head of the serpent being crushed by the woman’s heel (many texts translate this verse as HE shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for HIS heel). Either way, the Catholic Church has always interpreted this verse to be God’s first promise of a Redeemer or Messiah. One who would come and restore all things; forgive sins, heal the rift between God and man, reinstate man’s dominion over the world and finally, put Satan in his place (hell) forever.

For a number of reasons, sending a Redeemer would not be easy, even for God. In fact, thousands of years would elapse before the exact time, place, and circumstances for Messiah would come. Complicating matters still further, only one person in the entire universe was qualified for the job.


Galatians 4:4 – 5 But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent his Son, made of a woman, made under the law: That he might redeem them who were under the law: that we might receive the adoption of sons.

A Baptist waxes eloquently on the matters of slavery and abortion

In these two great blights in our nation, a common pattern emerges. First, one group in power decides its needs are greater than the rights of others. The powerful thus dominate the powerless. In the 19th century it was the white slave owner dominating the black slave. In the next two centuries, it has been those who are born dominating the helpless unborn.

The rationale for the domination of a group of people is the needs of the dominant. For slave owners, it was economic need. For those who participate in abortions, it is a need for convenience. In order to justify this domination, the helpless are given new labels to dehumanize them. They are thus called slaves or the “n-word.” Or they are called tissue or fetuses. They must be identified as something less than human or the actions cannot be justified.

Finally, the dehumanization of a people becomes a right of another group. The right to hold men, women and children in the bondage of slavery is called owners’ rights and states’ rights. The right to kill the unborn is called reproductive rights.
