What If Abortion Is Murder?
By Sheikh Donald Bakeer
Los Angeles, CA When I was being processed and brainwashed just before going to the front lines in Vietnam (1967), I persuaded a small group of my fellow Black soldiers to follow me to the Chaplain’s office to ask some Biblical questions.
I had been raised a Christian, so I read the New Testament (The Injeel) on the arduous plane ride over, and I could no longer rationalize killing Vietnamese given my new understanding of Jesus’ philosophy.
The Chaplain dispatched us quickly, assuring me and my band that God made exception to the Old Testament’s Ten Commandment’s for Communists – who were atheists. I forget his exact words, but the gist of it was we should kill as many of them as possible.
So, we killed 2 million, and they killed 47 thousand of us; but every time I go to the VA Hospital or drive thru L.A.’s Skid Row I see my fellow Vietnam vets who were a little more spiritually blind and just did what they were told when murder was admired. Fortunately, Allah (SWA) blessed me to make the right decision, so I was spared a life of nightmares.
“Even so, in the eyes of most of the Pagans, their “partners” made alluring the slaughter of their children, in order to lead them to their own destruction, and cause confusion in their religion. If Allah had willed, they would not have done so: but leave alone them and their inventions.” Qur’an 6:137
This is the 40th year since Roe vs Wade in 1973 when the government said killing babies was no longer a bad thing. In fact, it was kind of patriotic if you were Black. African Americans have had 400-500,000 abortions in every year since, a total of somewhere between 16 and 20,000,000 black children.
What if we have been brainwashed, again, and “Thou Shalt Not Kill” does apply to abortions, too? Despite what Planned Parenthood, the President, the Democratic Party, Oprah, and all the OB-GYN doctors, et al, have decided, what if the truth is voluntary abortion is actually killing a human being?
So, rather than making a cosmetic, insignificant decision, you are making a momentous determination of whether on Yaum Al Kiyama (Judgment Day) you will be standing in the glorious ranks with the Mothers or the Disgraced ranks of the Murderers and their accomplices.
Is it worth the risk for a Spiritual person? This is not a fair predicament for young women, who are being persuaded every day in every way to think it’s their right to do the wrong thing.
“Kill not your children for fear of want: We shall provide sustenance for them as well as for you. Verily the killing of them is a great sin.” Our’an 17:31
“Nor come nigh to adultery: for it is a shameful (deed) and an evil, opening the road (to other evils).” Qur’an 17:32
No! A woman does not have the right to choose murder and her mate does not have the right, either, nor her friends, relatives, or whomever, to convince her to choose to kill without having their souls scathed w/blood that does not wash off.
Is this, coincidentally, part of the reason for our 40 year malaise of mediocrity and immorality. This is a great challenge that could, however, be a great opportunity to reinvigorate the whole race and, ultimately, impact for good on the whole world.
I don’t believe most African Americans are aware that we are having 40% of the abortions, although, we are only 12 or 13% of America’s population, or that we have had millions of abortions since 1973.
On the contrary, most of us, probably, figured we would always have more than enough kids. That was something White people were concerned about, not us. We were virile, potent, soulful…
But, in that 40 years we took the shame off of fornication (we, now, call it, “making love”, and it’s championed continuously in most of our media). It is no longer disgraceful to be in illicit relationships, and having sex is expected at earlier and earlier ages.
The topic of abortion is not popular among preachers, imams, or their congregations, but this is a call for all African American clergy to preach against fornication and adultery and chasten their flocks against abortions from their bully pulpits, vociferously. Let us fight this silentl holocaust with our Spiritual strength and change this despicable tradition.
100,000 less African American abortions in 2013!
