State Rep. Rebekah Warren: An Agent of the Devil by Akindele Akinyemi
I was reading an article from Andrew Shrivell, Esq on State Representative Rebekah Warren from Ann Arbor on Right Michigan.com. He discussed how Rep. Warren is promoting a package of bills that will radically change how Michigan schools educate children about abortion, contraception, and sexual practices.
Democratic lawmakers in the House and Senate say these bills will reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies and abortions in Michigan by making contraception and sex education available more widely.
What the hell? That does not make any sense.
Sen. Gretchen Whitmer, D-East Lansing, said this in the Detroit News:
"We should all be able to agree that one of the most important things we can do is to prevent unwanted pregnancy."
Notice she represents East Lansing, home of Michigan State University. There is more banging on a college campus than people graduating. You can prevent an unwanted pregnancy by talking to your children about sex BEFORE they conduct the act.
So here is my sales pitch to the Michigan Democrats who are sponsoring this bill. As we move forward with the Genesis Project to open theme based schools in Detroit we will not follow your radical agenda. I am not interested in teaching children about sex in the classroom unless we are going to teach it in the form of a focus group with parents involved. As an educational leader in this community I refuse to bow down to such radical ideologies, even if you are giving us state funding for these schools. There are some things we need to educate our children and there are some things we need to keep sacred in the home.
I cannot understand why Rep. Warren, Rep Wheeler-Smith and others would promote abortion when this is the leading cause of death in the Black community. God gives us life and as usual we chose death.
1,452 African-American children are killed each day by the heinous act of abortion.
3 out of 5 pregnant African-American women will abort their child.
Since 1973 there has been over 13 million Black children killed and their precious mothers victimized by the U.S. abortion industry.
43% of all black children are aborted, nearly 3 times higher than for Whites. This fact is critical, since pastors and politicians argue that the reason for the illegitimacy rates for Blacks being dramatically higher is because they claim, “Blacks seldom abort their children.”
• Over 15 million African-American babies have been aborted (killed by their mothers) since Roe v. Wade. This is 14 times the total of all U.S. soldiers killed in all of America’s wars over 220 years from 1775 to present.
• Blacks abort their babies 3 times that of Whites, a ratio that has grown by 50% since 1992.
“The top three moral crises facing the Black family are rooted in sexual immorality.” - Star Parker, President, Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education (CURE).
With 1/3 of all abortions performed on Black women, the abortion industry has received over 4,000,000,000 (yes, billion) dollars from the Black community.
Conservatives by and large oppose abortion and fight vehemently against it. Liberals like State Reps. Warren and Wheeler-Smith believe that it is a woman’s right to choose. They also believe that people who are conservative are racists so why is it that Planned Parenthood, a liberal organization that fights any limit on abortion, has been caught accepting donations from people who want their money to be used to abort black children?
The other thing I wonder is do any of the Michigan Democrats know that sexual promiscuity is the common thread traceable throughout the shredded fabric of the Black family. It is rampant from pulpit to pew to politician.
A. Promiscuity has decimated Black marriage.
B. Promiscuity has resulted in over 70% of all black children being born out of wedlock.
C. Promiscuity has left 85% of black children without 2 parents.
D. Promiscuity has resulted in a level of fatherlessness unprecedented in modern history and perhaps in world history, producing:
1. Explosive anger
2. Rebellion against all authority
3. A rampant drug trade
4. Murder and violence baffling law enforcement nationwide
5. Prisons filled with black men whose confused lives are torn to shreds, without hope, and determined that someone will pay.
“The quickest way to bring anger, tears and vitriol to any conversation among black people is to discuss the state of Black male and female relationships” (Margaret Kimberly, The Black Commentator, April 23, 2004).
Why aren't there movements to increase the adoption of Black children into loving families?
We should not endorse these State Representatives at all. They are just as bad as State Rep. Bettie Cook Scott introducing that ridiculous DPS bill. They remind us of how decadent our community has become and this spells disaster for us. The churches need to take a more active role in securing the futures of foster children and parenting education.
We do not need Michigan Democrats in the State House and Senate talking about unwanted pregnancies and so-called programs to help prevent it. First, pregnancy is 100% PREVENTABLE. Yes, I know that nothing is 100% effective, but we (men and women alike) need to stop acting like children are conceived in the same manner in which someone catches a cold. An even bigger problem is that these statistics point to rampant unprotected sex which is fueling soaring rates of HIV infection among Blacks. A child deserves love and affection and should be more than a by-product of his or her parent’s lack of responsibility, forethought, and/or self-control.
