According to a CNSNews article, CDC statistics reveal that African American abortions are disproportionately high compared to ratio of African Americans in the state’s population. “Although whites outnumber blacks in Mississippi by nearly 2-to-1, 71.67% of the babies aborted in Mississippi are black, while 26.6% are white.”
As cnsnews.com reports, a recent report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene shows that more African Americans were aborted in 2012 than were born. The report also indicates a high ratio of Hispanic abortions. The statistics are consistent with the abortion figures from the Center for Disease Control in 2010.
Once each person is no longer taken as an unquestionable given, eventually everyone will have to show that he/she has a life of net positive value (is justified in living) in order for it to be thought reasonable for him/her to go on living.
Here is a link to Michael Paulsen’s paper entitled “The Insistent Analogy to Slavery.”http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2395002
This paper was presented at the “Roe at 40″ conference at Washington & Lee Law School. The conference was supported by University Faculty for Life, among others, and largely came about through the hard work of Sam Calhoun. The papers from the conference, including Professor Paulsen’s paper, will be published in a forthcoming issue of the Washington & Lee Law Review.
