"Hands up, don't abort!"
By Ellis Washington
January 23, 2015

I just wanna be safe.

~ Malik Bryant (Obama's 2015 SOTU guest)

*N.B.: This essay was inspired by my Facebook friends reply to a Pro-life posting I did commemorating the tragic 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, therefore I decided to expand that initial work into a complete writing.

All memorials and birthdays aren't good. For example, this is the 42nd Anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973) decision that legalized infanticide in America. There have been approximately 65-80 million innocent lives lost since 1973 due to this unconstitutional Supreme Court case. Actual numbers are difficult to quantify because three states don't keep abortions records by state law – California, Maryland and New Hampshire.

Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) together with Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), are the lead sponsors of legislation in the House of Representatives that bans abortions from after 20-weeks of pregnancy up to the day of birth. In a statement, Franks told LifeNews: "More than 18,000 'very late term' abortions are performed every year on perfectly healthy unborn babies in America. These are innocent and defenseless children who can not only feel pain, but who can survive outside of the womb in most cases, and who are torturously killed without even basic anesthesia. Many of them cry and scream as they die, but because it is amniotic fluid going over their vocal cords instead of air, we don't hear them."

"Late term Abortion in America has its defenders, but no true or principled defense. The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act seeks to afford basic protection to mothers and their unborn babies entering the sixth month of gestation," he said. "Throughout America's history, the hearts of the American people have been moved with compassion when they discover a theretofore hidden class of victims, once they grasp both the humanity of the victims and the inhumanity of what is being done to them. America is on the cusp of another such realization."

"We have a moral obligation to end dangerous late-term abortions in order to protect women and these precious babies from criminals like Kermit Gosnell and others who prey on the most vulnerable in our society," Blackburn said. "The United States is one of the few remaining countries in the world that allows abortion after 20 weeks. That is why today we renew our efforts to protect the lives of babies and their mothers with the introduction of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Rep. Franks and I have been a good team moving this legislation through the House as we continue to lead the fight to ensure the unborn are provided the same protections that all human life deserves."

Those who watched President Obama's 2015 State of the Union Speech saw a 13-year-old young man named Malik Bryant. He is from an area called Englewood, a very high-crime neighborhood located in inner city Chicago. Malik was one of about 8,500 Chicago Public Schools students who wrote letters to Santa Claus in a program run by DirectEffect Charities, a 13-year-old Chicago nonprofit.

He was chosen for the honor of sitting next to First Lady Michelle Obama because he sent the president a very poignant letter to Santa Claus where he didn't ask for electronics, nor clothes, nor games. Malik only asked Santa Claus for one thing; he basically said these 5 simple, yet profound words – "I just wanna be safe." One could paradoxically not only apply Malik's passionate plea to President Obama, but also to the millions of preborn babies whose melancholy cries – 'I just wanna be safe' went unanswered by the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court for 42 years and counting.

You've heard of the false slogan, "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" used by race demagogues, poverty pimps and Welfare Socialists like Al Sharpton? The thugs of Ferguson, Missouri also used this effective communist tactic regarding the death of Michael Brown. We know now that Michael Brown never uttered that slogan and it played no role in the cause of his senseless death, but his accomplice, Dorian Johnson, who helped Michael rob the liquor store, alleged that Michael actually said those words minutes before his fatal altercation with police officer Darren Wilson. For more information about this subject, read economist, and Black intellectual Dr. Thomas Sowell's excellent essay.

Dorian Johnson is a liar and a useful idiot in the tradition of historically how Lenin and communists used Direct Action to foment perpetual lies and existential societal chaos, then once society falls into anarchy and nihilism, the communists, liberals, progressives and socialists all swoop in like vultures to seize power, remove or deconstruct the remaining vestiges of civilization and society's Judeo-Christian institutions, take over governments while continuing the spread of their communist/socialist ideology of genocide and democide. These communist tactics aren't new, but are very effective and have been used by the Left to kill Christian nations for decades. For example, with the rise of Adolph Hitler and the Nazis from 1925-33 (who early on were called "brownshirts"), the German Communists (called "blackshirts") had a several slogans to this effect – "First brown, then red" or Nach Hitler, kommen wir, meaning: After Hitler we [the Communists] will take power.

In modern times (since 1957 with the death of that great conservative statesman, Senator Joseph McCarthy) Progressives and their coalition of the Left, including liberals, socialists, anarchists, unionists, feminists, Occupy Wall Street, Globalists, Generation X, Y, Z, etc... are the new Communists and Communist sympathizers.

Ironically, the real "Hands Up, Don't Shoot [Abort]" slogan can be viewed in that iconic picture above where statistics tell us abortion kills more Black people annually than cancer, heart disease, diabetes, gang-banging, ghetto life and gun violence combined. America, on this shameful 42nd Anniversary of legalized genocide against infants euphemistically called "abortion" let us all use our strongest efforts to Stop All Abortions, both in America and all over the world. Give every child a chance at Life, just like your mother gave you a chance at Life by not aborting You.

To all the Roe v. Wade supporters, including President Obama and the Democrat Socialist Party, and all of its factions down through the Ages, I wish you a very UnHappy 42nd Birthday.

Spread the Word. Spread Enlightenment. Spread Veritas (truth).

"Hands Up, Don't Abort!"
