Today is Juneteenth 2019 here in America, and we are commemorating the day in 1865 when all “Negroes” became “free at last” through the official abolition of slavery. We are also celebrating 400 years of African-American life here in America; wherein President Donald Trump signed the Bill, H.R. 1242 on January 8, 2018 and enacted the 400 Years of African-American History Commission
. This enactment helps to develop and carry out activities throughout the United States to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of Africans in the English colonies at Point Comfort, Virginia, in 1619.
Yes, Black slaves were freed; but where is the justice for our babies?
During the past 400 years African-Americans have significantly contributed to the greatness of our nation. Yet we have also suffered oppression, segregation, racism and disproportionate campaigns to reduce our growth, with abortion at the forefront.
Thankfully, here in 2019 we have an advocate for justice leading from the White House. President Donald John Trump is working to set the youngest and most oppressed captives free here in America; those still in the womb.
In the guise of philanthropy, health care and reproductive choice, a disproportionate number of African-American mothers and our babies are being targeted by the abortion industry. Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger and her disciples like Melinda Gates have secretly promulgated a racist agenda that is coming to light.
The same thing happened to the slaves freed by Lincoln.
Although the Emancipation Proclamation became effective on January 1, 1863, it was not until June 19, 1865, two and a half years later, that the slaves in Galveston, Texas were set free. Now, all these years later, we are finally realizing that babies in the womb are people who need to be set free to be born.
Therefore, for Juneteenth this year, I say “yes,” celebrate the date that the Black slaves were set free! Now free our babies.
Let’s pray for the freedom of our brothers and sisters, the little people, the boys and girls in our mothers’ wombs. Those who even today are not free to live, not being treated as persons. They are slaves of sorts in the wombs of their mothers.
It’s time for reparations for the babies. Throughout American history, different ethnic groups of people have received reparations that allowed them to invest in various businesses. What reparations have the Black communities received? Birth control and abortion. We deserve more than “gifts” of population control.
Yes. Let’s celebrate the freeing of the slaves in the 19th century. Now it’s time for a new emancipation proclamation for the unborn.
In 2019 it’s time to set ALL the captives free. That includes the little babies in the womb.
HAPPY JUNETEENTH 2019
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free...” Luke 4:18
