A culture of death means introduction of behaviors that threaten the future of our communities, of our nation. When we lose appreciation for the sanctity of life, along with this we lose the sense of sanctity of behavior that brings life to the world. Marriage and sex become no longer responsible expressions of love and creation but expressions of egoism and selfgratification of the moment. Sadly, and predictably, following the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, we saw collapse of the institution of marriage and of childbearing. The fertility rate in the United States today is at a historic low and well below the rate necessary for the population to replace itself.

This is what I call a culture of death. An aging nation, where the number of souls departing exceeds the number of new souls being brought forth, is not a nation with a future. Particularly troubling is the disproportionate extent to which the culture of death has rooted itself in Black communities. About one-third of the nation’s abortions are performed on Black women. In 1960, the percentage of Black adults and white adults, age 25 and above, who had never been married was almost identical — around 10%. By 2012, among whites this increased to 16%, but among Blacks to 36%.

Black poverty is largely centered in Black households headed by single women.

Sadly, the Congressional Black Caucus wants to perpetuate the culture of death. They decry the court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

But the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is not a ban on abortion. It is a rejection of the bogus decision that claimed the U.S. Constitution grants abortion rights.

Those on the left, who regularly express their concerns about our democracy, now have things the way they want it.

The future of abortion lies in democracy. Each state will decide if they want a culture of death.

My prediction is Americans will choose life. And Black Americans will choose life.

The result will be a rebirth of the American family, children and future.

Yes, I am rejoicing that so many will be called “Mom” this time next year and am praying that God will shower their offspring with a double portion of His blessings.

There is great reason today to celebrate in America.
