The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

The Deception of Choice - Hell Is Here!

Addressing the marchers at the pro-life “March on Washington” in 1977, pro-life civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson said,

“There are those who argue that the right to privacy is of [a] higher order than the right to life,…that was the premise of slavery. You could not protest the existence or treatment of slaves on the plantation because that was private and therefore outside your right to be concerned. What happens to the mind of a person, and the moral fabric of a nation, that accepts the aborting of the life of a baby without a pang of conscience? What kind of a person and what kind of a society will we have 20 years hence if life can be taken so casually? It is that question, the question of our attitude, our value system, and our mind-set with regard to the nature and worth of life itself that is the central question confronting mankind. Failure to answer that question affirmatively may leave us with a hell right here on earth.”

Well, hell is here! The civil rights of over 3,300 aborted unborn babies are violated each day in the USA. The tragedy of Jesse Jackson's words as a Black "civil rights" leader, is that over 1,200 of them are African American children. In fact 16 million Black babies have died since 1973, some of them, apparently with the consent of now pro-abortion Jackson.

In fact abortion's impact on the Black community is genocidal - black death now outpaces black life. In New York City, for example, in 2010 there were 27,405 non-Hispanic black live births and 40,798 non-Hispanic black abortions. That's a Black life deficit of 13,393 - a 60% abortion rate.

Rev. Jesse Jackson abandoned his pro-life position when he decided to run for president as a Democrat a number of years later. If the pro-life Jesse Jackson of 1977, were to debate the now pro-abortion (or "pro-choice" as they prefer to be called) Jesse Jackson of 2012, the latter would no doubt be squirming - for obvious reasons.

Deception can lead us to embrace what might be personally or politically expedient, but it can never change the truth.
