An Offensive Billboard In Times Square New York

An Offensive Billboard In Times Square New York

A few days ago, many of our Civil Rights leaders - egged on by the baby-killing machine bureaucracy - were irate because a Christian group put up an anti abortion billboard in Times Square with the caption that basically said that the womb was the most dangerous place for a black baby to be. Those who are not residing in New York should have read and heard the outcries; you would have thought that the billboard was sanctioning genocide or calling for the slaughter of cute, cuddly puppies. We have become so accustomed to killing babies that even when those of us who opposed the wholesale slaughter of the innocents we are looked upon as the ogres or the pariahs. During Michael Vick’s public castration of his rep for his despicable slaughtering of dogs, I often wondered how many of us were pointing our accusatory fingers at him, while partaking in sonic-boom silence on abortions.

Do we think that those of us who believe it is our right to kill babies has anything over bin Laden – incidentally, Osama frowns on such killings? In the eighties, I was stationed at Fort Lewis… and for some reason, the TV station in the play room was showing a live abortion procedure; many of us soldiers, trained to kill, walked out because we couldn’t stomach it. How could I, after seeing my daughter in my wife’s womb… divorce myself from such images and chalk them up as globs of tissues? I would have to be engaged in self-delusion after seeing the ultra-sounds of my daughter or any child to say that it is not life. The kicker is that there are those of us out there who felt more sympathy toward the dogs slaughtered by Vick than the babies being murdered everyday. Like the Civil Rights leaders, they would spit at you and call you all sorts of names because you dare speak out against the most heinous of human behavior.

I personally do not care whose womb the baby is in; this is not about black or white for me, it is simply an issue of Human Rights. When our society’s conscience has become so callous and seared about the killing of babies, are we surprised about the discourse or the everyday interaction among our fellow citizens? I love to play a game with those who come knocking on my doors to enlighten me about the environment or whatever issue being parroted in Hollywood: first, I normally ask them how they feel about the killing of the Spotted Owl or any such endangered animal… they would noise their objection… then I would ask them their take on abortion… their answers run the gamut from it’s none of their business to refusing to address the issue. By the way, I have already been castigated by my dad on my position; and, I am certain to hear the same sentiments again from many of my colleagues.

      That is your opinion, but if I were to do the same - kill - the so called endangered species (animals) at the same time of development... I would be looked down upon.

      The left will save a dog before a human. But that's only natural since dogs can't mount opposition against their causes.

      The sign wasn't removed for any other reason than the liberals do not want you to know what murderes they are! Funny...they fight for abortion rights and got them, You would think that billboard would have been something they took pride in! Sick! 59.7% of black women in NY have had abortions! Liberals should be ashamed and hand their heads low!
