And if you extrapolate further, they killed multiple generations of people that will never be conceived.
And that's coming from someone who's political views would not have been in line with 99 percent of those dead and never-conceived people.
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

Whatever - it's a no-win situation. People will always find something to gripe about. (I'm just commenting on the overall, broad spectrum topic).
If the stats were anything else - some other group would be complaining:
#1: When single-mothers are on a rise, the 'wholesome families are failing' groups get all in a tizzy as do the 'we need to give more support to single mothers!' and 'deadbeat dads are terrible' groups. The 'use birth control, it's free - go to your planned parenthood clinic!' people chime in, too.
#2: When the birth rate is LOW for certain groups of people then the 'why are the birth rates dropping?' concerned crowd pipes up.
#3: When adoption is up the 'parents should PARENT and not toss their responsibilities off on anyone else' groups get REALLY worked up.
#4: Abortion's up (even when it's *not* but it's altered or just discuss) the pro-life get all in a fuss as do the pro-choice, because they always have to butt heads.
#5: Abortions are down and adoptions are down - then the 'overpopulation' people get worked up.
And so on.
- Everyone has an opinion. Blah blah. The only opinions that matter are the MOTHERS and the FATHERS (if they're involved beyond the sex) whose lives will be DIRECTLY affected by the events at hand.
- Everyone else is just sticking their nose in someone else's business.
A screaming comes across the sky.

This would be less women 'having babies just to get the welfare.' Hmmm.
I'm going to take a stab in the dark here and predict that you live in a zone with way less than the national average of African-American citizens. I make this prediction on my long experience dealing with liberals - they love to talk about diversity but they somehow always manage to live far, far away from it.
It's what the left wants less babies along with a lot less morals.
