Trayvon’s exploited and tragic death is not about race but about bolstering a false ideology and justifying misdirected violent behavior.
The Texas Senate is going for Round Two in an epic battle to pass legislation that reflects the will of the people. The ban on late-term abortions after 5 months has proven to be overwhelmingly supported by Americans (2 to 1 in latest uber-liberal Huffington Post national poll) and by a clear margin of women (50% to 44% according to the liberal National Journal poll).
The Congressional Budget Office, the allegedly non-partisan agency of Congress that assesses the financial impact of legislation, had added its two cents to the abortion debate. On June 18, 2013, the House successfully passed HR 1797, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
Texas Senator Wendy Davis chose Life. She was a 19 year old single mom (briefly married then divorced) in financial dire straits.

Dear Cecile Richards,
Truth knows no color. No one has a monopoly on it. Everyone has access to it. Frederick Douglass believed this, and risking life and limb, became the first black American journalist with the creation of the anti-slavery North Star newspaper.

Abortion activists love their folklore. Women. Hangers. Millions of deaths. None of it’s true, but it sure sounds scary in a sound bite. Planned Parenthood’s own Medical Director, Dr. Mary Calderone, in a 1959 article decrying the lack of social acceptance of abortion declared: “Abortion is no longer a dangerous procedure…90% of all illegal abortions are presently being done by physicians. Many of these physicians are in good standing in their communities.”
Who would have imagined a world where the nation’s largest black civil rights groups would partner with the one organization that destroys innocent life for a profit? Who would have envisioned an alliance between those who’ve fought for the humanity of an oppressed people and an industry that engages in the ultimate form of oppression—the killing of defenseless human beings?
