It would be interesting to see statistics that indicate the percentage of other minorities in the population and their incidence of abortion to birth. I'd expect that there's a large latino population in metropolitan NYC with a similar level of poverty in the group. Would it tell us something if their incidence of abortion to birth is significantly different?
Seems to me, your comment is simply an excusing and an acceptance of a negative trend - I'd hate to think that America has taken the position that abortion is a public policy initiative to control poverty in minorities by reducing the minority population going forward.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
However. Abortion is not something I necessarily advocate for, but I'm sick and tired of the pro life crowd spewing this kind of "how sad" crap when there are other options than abstinence (just for example). I do not see a lot of "let's think of other options", just a lot of finger pointing about who's more morally bankrupt.
To be clear..it has LESS to do with race and MORE to do with the fact that most unwanted pregnancies occur in poverty. Period.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice....shame on me.
