Black Lives Matter Unless They are in the Womb

August 9 was the one-year anniversary of the death of criminal Michael Brown which sparked the Ferguson riots as well as protests all across the country, not to mention the recent riots in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray. It also sparked the #BlackLivesMatter campaign.

Another issue which has been hotly contested lately is abortion. The abortion debate has been reignited by the recent release of the six stomach-turning Planned Parenthood videos.

The #BlackLivesMatter campaign has been touted by the mainstream media in an effort to brainwash people into believing that white people, cops, and America in general is racist. Incidents such as the death of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, and Dylan Roof are exploited by the media in an effort to push their agenda of racism.

The irony of it is that they really don’t care about black lives. They only pretend to care in these cases, because these scenarios fit the narrative they are pushing. In all of these cases an unarmed, black man was killed by a white cop.

So what does the #BlackLivesMatter campaign have to do with abortion? Everything! In 2013 it was estimated that 984,000 abortions took place in America. On a positive note this is down from the estimated 1.02 million in 2012, as reported by According to roughly 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States.

While math is not my strong suit that would mean roughly 684,740 black babies are aborted every year in the United States. That is more than two-thirds the number of babies that were aborted in the United States in 2013.

So more than two-thirds of the babies aborted annually in America are black. So why aren’t the #BlackLivesMatter protestors picketing in front of abortion clinics? Why isn’t the mainstream media reporting the statistics on the number of black babies aborted annually in the United States?

Because that would actual journalism. Heaven forbid a media outlet actually report facts. But seriously, don’t the lives of these unborn black babies matter? I thought #BlackLivesMatter? Since 1973 black women have had roughly sixteen million abortions. Had these women chosen life, America’s black population would be roughly 52 million rather the 36 million today. Maybe black women should have thought about doing their part to increase America’s black population before they went and had an abortion, because #Diversity.

Sadly, to the mainstream media and the black lives matter protestors, you’re life only matters if it fits in to the narrative they are pushing. In this case, that narrative is white cops are racist, and “her body, her choice” because “it’s just a fetus”.

So to the mainstream media, your life only matters if it fits the current narrative that is being pushed, which changes with the political wind. It’s ironic that conservatives often get blamed for racism, yet we are the only ones standing up for the black babies that are still in the womb. Unlike the left, we actually believe that all lives truly do matter, whether or not it fits our current political narrative.
