Dear Fellow American, pt2
A letter from Pastor Troy Thomas
I greet you in the name of our Savior and Lord.
Proverbs 6:16-17 “These six things doth the Lord hate; yea, seven are an abomination unto Him…and hands that shed innocent blood.”
Proverbs 24:11-12 “If you forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; if you say, behold, we knew it not; does not God that ponders the heart consider it? He that keeps your soul, does not He know it? Shall not He render to every man according to his works?”
Amos 1:13 “Thus says the Lord…I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up the women with child of Gilead, that they might enlarge their border.”
DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER? In my previous letter, I covered the subject of needless, unjustified murder of blacks by police officers. I will not repeat it in this letter. You can read it HERE.
DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER? In 1973, our Supreme Court legalized abortion. Abortion is the killing of babies in the womb of their mother. A heinous procedure of partial birth abortion is legal also. Partial birth abortion is where the baby is ¾ delivered, feet first. While the baby’s head is still in the birth canal of its mother, a hole is made in the bottom of the baby’s skull. After that is done, a device is used to suck the brains out of the baby’s head. The baby is killed and thrown away like trash. Oh, how terrible for the little baby! Oh, how tragic this killing of the unborn is!
To all of the pro-abortion people: You are pro-life at least for one case—your own life. Where would you be, if your mom had chosen to abort you? Hmmm.
There have been approximately 67 million documented abortions since 1973. The black race in America makes up about 12% of the population. It makes up approximately 37% of all the abortions in America. I multiplied it out. The black race accounts for 550,888 abortions per year. That is 1,509 abortions/murders of black babies each day. I have a question for us: DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER?
Every abortion is tragic. The color of the baby that is killed doesn’t matter. But, just for this letter, I am concentrating on the murder of black babies. Listen, these daily 1,509 black murders are not done by a white police officer. Hmmm.These murders are done to us by our own black mothers. DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER?
Where are the mass protests to stop the 1,509 black murders by our black women on a daily basis? I am just asking some questions. Where is the group called “Black Lives Matter?” What is the group called Black Lives Matter doing about the genocide of abortion? THIS IS BLACK GENOCIDE!!!
Why would a mother kill her unborn baby? That is a complicated question. Some feel that they have no choice. Some have been pressured by relatives, husbands, or boyfriends. Some have been abandoned by the man that got them pregnant. The man that said he loved them and that he would be with them through thick and thin. When the thick came, that piece of a man was nowhere to be found. My English is incorrect, but you get my point.
Some mothers-to-be don’t want a child to hinder their career. Those mothers-to-be desire to enlarge their career (borders) at the expense of their innocent baby. Listen, it is one thing to tell a mother with an unplanned pregnancy, “Do not abort your baby.” It is another thing to help them live, survive, and thrive once they chose life. We support places that take in ladies with unplanned pregnancies. These places also provide necessities to help mothers-to-be after they have their babies. SO, IF BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER, what are we doing to help save the unborn black baby? If black lives really matter, I definitely could NOT support anyone that is for killing 1,509 black babies a day. COULD YOU?
I have a few more questions. Why are most of the Planned Parenthood (abortion clinics) set up in minority neighborhoods? If a woman chooses to have an abortion, why should I have to pay for it with my tax dollars? Are you thankful that your mom did not abort you? Hmmm.
