  • One-third of Detroit pregnancies are aborted: report

    The rates of abortion in Detroit (and indeed in the US) among young black women is entirely consistent with their rates of STD infection, which are absurdly high. In order to require an abortion, sex had to come first, and the absurdly high rate of abortion, and especially repeat abortions, is simply a consequence of lack of planning, responsibility and adult behavior in sexual conduct that is indicated by the high rates of STD’s in the same population.

    The precursor to irony here is the high rate of abortion in Detroit is easily surpassed by by the rates of abortions among black teens in Texas, who have over double the rate of abortions per 1,000 population.

    The final irony is the perception that Texas is a “conservative” state. It might be fiscally, but where abortion is concerned, Texas is making the abortion mills in Michigan’s urban blight look like businesses run as a hobby.

    I’ve heard all this before.

    You’ll be one of the pious people praying for civil order when the money runs out and the welfare hoards you’ve allowed to multiply at the expense of the productive people decide to take the model of government they’ve perfected in Detroit and make it a national condition. Look around Detroit and tell me that you’ll look forward to that: fire and police response takes an hour to two. Areas of the city are now dark, because they cannot afford to keep the streetlights on. Houses in some areas of the city can be purchased for pennies on the dollar of valuation 25 years ago.

    Detroit isn’t a one-off. It is what is coming to most of the large urban centers.

    You pious people, who keep clutching your Bibles, spouting moral indignation, fire and brimstone, have lost not only the battle on abortion with your tactics, you’ve effectively lost the war for limited government, free market capitalistic enterprise and a cohesive American with your tactics, which have done nothing to achieve your stated goal: the preservation of life.

    Why and how have you lost? Your tactics have created a huge base of voters who vote in lock-step uniformity for candidates who espouse left-wing policies and positions, especially abortion on demand. Your only hope for success now lies in depending on poor turnout among their numbers.

    As de Tocqueville observed, the American Republic will endure until people discover that they can vote themselves money from the Treasury. Your tactics have created a swelling underclass who do and will do exactly that.

    Congratulations.

    By the way, there’s no way to force people to use contraception. Various schemes have been tried, and we’re following the usual litany of “sex ed,” “free or subsidized contraception methods,” etc.

    Short of forced sterilization, which they perform in totalitarian regimes such as the PRC, there’s little that can be done.

    The population of the inner cities of the US have made their choices how they’re going to conduct themselves. All the preaching, cajoling, etc isn’t going to change a thing at this late date. It is high time that conservatives quit trying to use morality and preaching to deal with this issue and admit that the moral argument is no longer viable.

    All that now remains is a choice for our civilization: Are we going to allow our civilization to be crushed under a wave of welfare dependency that has been allowed to breed on the taxpayer’s dollar, or are we going to look at the hard, unflinching math of our budget(s) and say “Well, the fact that so many dependents are having abortions might be morally repulsive, but it is preventing the collapse of our civilization?”

    That’s the choice we now have in front of us. As Maggie Thatcher famously said about socialist governments: “They’re always running out of other people’s money.”

    We’ve now run out of money. Look at the data coming out of the BEA, BLS and Fed over the last five years and you can see the writing on the wall in big, red block letters. We’re broke, and the ability of our economy to generate well-paid jobs is broken. Republicans have no viable solutions to this problem, all they can seem to do is repeat that mantra from the 80’s (”cut taxes”). The other party just wants to accelerate our flight speed into the terra firma with talk of more social spending.

    In light of this, I choose to say what needs to be said. It isn’t nice, it isn’t of “high moral stature” or anything of the sort, but it does make actuarial sense.

    About 24%, if recent statistics on unwed motherhood in the US black population are to be believed.

    Amend my earlier reply to replace “not” with “now,” viz:

    “...they’re now debt slaves, consigned to paying off the largess of the current and past generations. This, IMO, is wholly inexcusable.”

    All birth control requires a level of adult responsibility and judgement to use properly and effectively.

    These people lack that judgement and responsibility. So they use abortion as retroactive birth control.

    Yes, there is.

    I think that we, the taxpayers of the US, should institute a wonderful enforced bit of birth control upon these “repeat customers:”

    In the shop for a second abortion? Great news! We’ll throw in a tubal ligation for free. Done deal, future problems solved.
