Living In Miss Sanger's Paradise

The headline from the National Review says it all:

More Black Babies Aborted than Born in New York City

It even provides the actual stats:

In 2012, black women in New York City aborted over 6,500 more children than they gave birth to. Data from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene shows that, among non-hispanic black women, there were 31,328 “induced terminations” to 24,758 live births, according to a CNS News report.

In total, there were almost 74,000 abortions in New York in 2012, meaning that 42.4 percent of all abortions were of black children. Hispanic children accounted for 31 percent of those aborted in the city at a total of nearly 23,000.

Altogether, black and Hispanic abortions were 73 percent of the total of 73,815 abortions in New York in 2012.

For years, New York has had the highest abortion rate of any city in the nation.

Here's a weird thing. The disproportionate number of minorities who are subjected to the death penalty has long brought accusations of racism against the judicial system regarding how capital punishment is applied. Yet when we see numbers like 73% of all babies murdered in NYC were minorities, nobody bats an eye. In fact, the response to this kind of stuff is to try and make abortion more readily available. Yes, a response even by those who are allegedly Catholic.

It's not a popular book of the Bible, but it's times like this when I recall the first chapter of Habakkuk:

[2] How long, O Lord, shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear? shall I cry out to thee suffering violence, and thou wilt not save? [3] Why hast thou shewn me iniquity and grievance, to see rapine and injustice before me? and there is a judgment, but opposition is more powerful. [4] Therefore the law is torn in pieces, and judgment cometh not to the end: because the wicked prevaileth against the just, therefore wrong judgment goeth forth. [5] Behold ye among the nations, and see: wonder, and be astonished: for a work is done in your days, which no man will believe when it shall be told.

Read the rest of it at the link above. At some point, God will have had enough of all this. Then, we'll be sorry. Just remember, though. We all got it comin'.

It was great til the last sentence which blamed both guilty and innocent. And be aware of when God brings mass death. He brings it when the sin of a people is complete not prior. God did not kill the Amorites when they had done two hundred years of child sacrifice; he did it after 400 years when in fact to Him not to us...their sin was complete which he mentions in Gen.15:16... while talking to Abraham: " But in the fourth generation they shall return hither: for as yet the iniquities of the Amorrhites are not at the full until this present time. "
Christ thus says Jerusalem's sin is complete with their rejection of Him in Mt.23:32. Why are innocent children and preborns killed in a doom like Jericho or Jerusalem? Because God notes Exodus 20:5. "for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me"
But Ezekiel says the son shall not die for the sin of the father? That means die in the full sense of perishing in hell. But even David's baby died physically for David's sin...but only physically not eternally. Each of us dies for Adam's sin physically just as the Amorite children and young in Jerusalem died for their parents ir grandparents' sin.

I must disagree. We are all to blame for the monstrosity that our world has become. In fact, Catholics especially are to blame. We have been lax in our faith, our charity has grown cold, we have failed in fraternal correction, we haven't prayed/fasted/sacrificed, and so forth.

This is why so many of our prayers emphasize the supplicant is a sinner and even the first among sinners.

No, when the chastisement comes (or continues to worsen, depending on how you view current events), it will be for the Church as much as for anyone.
