Social Security sucks because of abortion, or so says Bishop George McKinney of the Church of God in Christ. He's claiming Social Security would be fine if 40-50 million babies weren't aborted in the 60's.
This sounds stupid and outrageous.
A member of the governing board of the nation's largest black denomination said Social Security is in trouble today because baby boomers aborted much of the generation that would have supported their retirement.
Bishop George McKinney of the Church of God in Christ said, "Part of the problem that we're seeing now with Social Security has to do with the fact that 40 to 50 million people who have been killed through abortions have not taken their role as productive citizens."
McKinney said the Democratic Party's support for legal abortion and gay marriage has cost it support in the black community.
The Church of God in Christ is the nation's fourth-largest denomination -- and the largest black church group -- with about 5.5 million members

I don't see anything stupid about that. Abortion has created huge holes in our society. China just outlawed sex selection through abortion because the imbalance between men and women is becoming so large. I wish more black democrats would know that since abortion was legalized, more than 14 million abortions have been performed on black women. The abortion rate of black women is three times higher than that of white women, and 60% of African-American women who become pregnant will have an abortion. It's no coincidence that 72% of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics are located in minority neighborhoods. Add to that, Margaret Sanger's virulent racism and belief in eugenics, and every black person in this country should be outraged.
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…" -- Margaret Sanger
Looks like she got her "colored" ministers. But wealthy hucksters like Jesse Jackson wouldn't take the pay cut that Planned Parenthood employment would offer.

Black people should be outraged that so many black people choose to abort their children? Hmmm. As a former counselor for an abortion hotline, I think if black people are going to be outraged that so many of their women choose to have abortions ... then they should be outraged because of the reasons why these women choose to abort.
Let's look over some of those reasons ...
2) the mother is a kid
3) their parents want thier child to abort because their child is still a kid
4) their children get pregnant because they have nothing better to do while their mom and dads are working ... and they can't afford a sitter
5) the dad has no interest in being a father
6) the dad is a kid
7) the girl was raped
8) the girl was raped by a family member or friend
I can go on. And, on. And, on. But, POVERTY and the age of the pregnant mother are the main two reasons why so many black women/children abort their babies.
