Skip to comments.New York City: Soft Drinks Bad, Late-Term Abortions Okay
Posted on 09/19/2012 8:19:41 AM PDT by rhema
New York City has two endangered species: Soda and babies. Unfortunately the city cares more about the soft drink than the human life
Last week the city passed a measure that would make a large Coke at McDonalds illegal but its still legal to kill 40% of the pre-born babies in the same city. Need a visual?
This is illegal:
This is legal:
New York City has an abortion rate almost double of the national average of 23%and even higher in some demographics. In the city, more African-American babies are killed than are born. A recent report shows the citys abortion rate at 40%, down from 41% in 2009, with some stunning numbers in the Bronx at 48% and a horrifyingly shocking number of 60% among African-Americans, which was unchanged from 2009. The website NYC41PERCENT.com reports For every 1,000 African-American babies born, 1,448 were aborted. That means being black in New York is basically being an endangered species
Did you catch that? 60% of all African-American babies are killed before they can take a breath and the city is concerned about my choice to drink soda. Its so ridiculous, illogical, and inane that one might think its a bad movie plot. However, its real and on Monday Business Insider reported that theater owners in the city have decided to sue to overturn the ban.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg is behind this soda ban because he claims to be concerned about peoples health being in danger from obesity:
The Wall Street Journal reports:
Obesity is going to kill more people in the world his year than starvation, Bloomberg said.
Board member Susan Klitzman said the obesity problem in New York is patently obvious. To not act would really be criminal.
Deepthiman Gowda, a board member, called the initiative a small but bold and exciting step forward.
The reality is we are in a crisis, he said. We need to act on this.
So I have a message for the New York City Board of Health: the real health crisis you have isnt in someones Coke; its in the destruction of your young.
Its wholly baffling to me that a city could be more concerned about someone buying a large Coke at a fast food restaurantan actual choiceand the fact that its abortion rate is doubleand for AfricanAmericans closer to triple, the national average. The priority focus of New York City proves the priority of its leadership. Mayor Bloomberg has been vocal about his support of abortion and a womans choice on that matter, all the while stealing a choice to purchase sugary drink. If you recall, earlier this year he pledged $25,000 to Planned Parenthood when Komen reversed its funding for those three days. In a statement at that time, he said, Politics have no place in health care.
What he obviously meant was that politics had no place in health care unless he felt they shouldand then he could define it. That a man would be more concerned about a Coke than a baby is grievous. The thing the New York City Board of Health needs to focus on right now is changing its skyrocketing abortion rate. Then we can discuss a soda from a food vendor.
Abortion is killing 40% of the potential citizens of the city who will never grow up to decide whether they want a large Coke. Thats the real crisis.

Those large drinks are mostly ice anyways
NYC schools mandate “sex ed” (meaning they encourage kids to have sex, ‘sex positive’) starts at 11.
Sex at 11 is fine, but they better not buy a soda
This makes white Democrats very happy indeed. And it is why they are so dedicated to keeping abortion legal. It is not so they can kill their own children, but so that African-American babies can continue to be slaughtered.
Given MSM conventional wisdom on the subject, it is ironic indeed that the Republican Party cares more about African-American babies than the Democrat Party and African-American parents.
Great post...just another glimpse into the twisted, depraved minds of liberals/progressives/socialists/food Nazis/central planners/commies, etc.
How long, oh Lord, until Black America wakes up and quits supporting the Strawboss Democrats who want their babies dead?
This is something I've been trying to point out. Blacks are supporting a party that supports them being eradicated.
This is genocide, pure and simple. Here are some interesting quotes of Margaret-Sanger, the leading proponent of abortion rights in the U. S.
