~ Tom Krattenmaker, USA Today: A recently completed billboard campaign in Atlanta claims that black children are threatened with extinction, Almost 40 percent of abortion is part of a new front in the antiabortion movement that links abortion to a sinister conspiracy to destroy black America Krattenmaker, author and member the Board the USA Today writes provider. He continues: Give credit to abortion-is – genocide vanguard for this at least. You have demolished the usual left-right boundaries with their mixture of shouts against racist injustice with antiabortion politics. According to Georgia Right to Life, one of the poster campaign sponsors, show data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that black women get 39 percent of U.S. Abortions, but. For approximately 13 percent of the population Nearly 40 percent of black pregnancies end in abortion. But look deeper and you will see that birth rates are higher in African-American women than the population as a whole – 16.5 births per 1,000 black women in 2006, compared with 14.2 Krattenmaker writes. That it is that it is probably a conspiracy behind black abortion rates. But that the ‘ conspirators not wear a lab coat abortion debate, They are the forces and factors to unwanted pregnancies, with a deficit of sexual responsibility , and a lack of moral recognition for the value of human life in all its many forms conspired lead . He writes that [ t] aking brings to all these unseen conspirators not the same visceral satisfaction than lobbing word grenades at the evil abortion industry or pro-life wing nuts, ‘ but this is where practical progress then waits given if the Americans are brave enough to go on arguing about abortion and actually do something. Krattenmaker notes that the nature of the abortion debate, poisoned the possibilities for negotiation and common ground, although both sides advocate abortion reduction and notes that the Liberals call for greater access to information and contraceptives, improved crime prevention and thus less rapes, better health care for mothers and children and better schools, and economic perspectives , the women whose children disabled from suing doctors prohibits withholding information on birth defects during pregnancy, writes Carr, vice president of communications. For the National Institute for Reproductive Health, in a commentary Under the law, doctors can retain deceived information, or even blatantly a pregnant woman and her partner are on the health of her baby when the doctor so much as thinks that test results test results would be considered a woman to have an abortion, Carr writes. As expected, antiabortion victory victory , but the law is not antiabortion ‘ she continues, adding: It is devastating, because it is anti – motherhood and anti – medicine. Oklahoma legislators have now told that[ the pregnant woman] can no longer sacred sacred trust that was always between her and her doctor, can now can now lie on her face and thus deny a woman what is arguably the most important piece of information that they in her life in her life, Carr says. The law is anti-mom, it is anti – doctor and it is anti – family, Carr states, adding that all women, regardless of how they feel about abortion, should be horrified. She concludes: I hope that the courts for the women and turned their backs on turned their backs on politicians and find that law unconstitutional and flat-out wrong, (Carr.
