“If black lives truly mattered to civil rights organizations, they would spend more time promoting strong families and less energy pushing abortion on demand…
As a candidate and president, [Barack] Obama talked openly about marriage, family, and fatherhood…[H]e gave a speech about violent crime in Chicago 10 years ago that…included this observation:
‘There’s no more important ingredient for success, nothing that would be more important for us reducing violence, than strong, stable families — which means we should do more to promote marriage and encourage fatherhood.’
Countless black progressive politicians, pundits, professors, preachers, and performers…rejected…[Obama’s] attempts to tie family structure to social outcomes because they believe racial inequality is caused by systemic forces, not individual decisions. The family is the one institution they show no interest in discussing.
…All references to the connection between fatherhood and social outcomes were removed in the 2016 and 2020 Democratic Party platforms.
It’s a lot easier to ignore the importance of fathers and families if you believe America would be a better place if fewer black children were born. This is the logical conclusion to draw when abortion activists claim black women will be the primary victims of limits on abortion.”
