Abortion not an issue

I write this quick posting for it came during a conversation on Twitter.  I am pro choice and believe in the value of all life.   When we speak of abortions it should be noted that in spite of Roe v Wade 40 years ago, abortion is still a taboo in minority communities.   I was shocked to learn such attitudes existed amongst young minoritiesin 2013.   I am not stating minorities do not have abortions; only they are not willfully keeping the clinics in business.  

Coercion and prostitution are two things that pop into mind when I hear of a minority having an abortion.  I also think rape.  The sad fact of life is minority women give birth to children who are the result of a rape.   Gang culture has moved into human trafficking in America.  Pimps care nothing of forcing a young woman to visit " the clinic ".  She may get a week's rest if lucky.

The tears cried when learning she is pregnant are silent compared to the ones she cry after an abortion.  The overwhelming sense of failure and loneliness are enough to drive one insane.  It is at that point she needs a friend.  She does not need more condemnation from others. 

All of this push to have forced births in America is not about minority children but a twofold long game.  The first is to reduce the number of women in the job market.  It is becoming harder for me to compete when they are not getting the educational training they need.  The second is to keep the majority the majority in America.   Earlier this year Texas saw the results of a population study done with a given of no Planned Parenthood.   The study showed a huge minority population growth.  The state of Texas stopped attempting to shutdown Planned Parenthood.  

The GOP'S love affair with controlling reproductive rights is disturbing at best.  They have reveled the true nature of their quest today in Ohio; eradicate female birth control.  I think Ohio GOP needs to see the Texas study.  I know all women need to come together to stop this push to get women out of labor market, to stop the  return to forced births ,and to stop the rise of human trafficking in America.     

I am typing from my phone no links. I encourage everyone to talk to the children.   Banning abortions or contraceptives is not the answer.   Talk with children you may be shocked to learn they desire guidance.

Why We Need More People of Color Writing Syfy

This weekend due to an enduring cough, I decided to binge watch Wayward Pines.  In truth, I actually need to binge on Game of Thrones but I shall save that binge($$$$$) for my birthday.  Let me not chase that rabbit for now.  Wayward Pines is one example of how having majority White writers of science fiction/fantasy continue to ignore the actual composition of Earth's population, the societal norms of those populations, and the ability of those populations to thrive outside of White intervention.

I am a lover of Fantasy and Science Fiction since childhood. What I have noted over the years is a common theme, humans(White people) have changed the environment to the point of either some horrifying human mutation or some climate apocalypse.  I often wonder why in these writings we don't see an evolution that leads to world peace.  Start Trek is one of the few that shows the possibility for humans after we  learn to work for peace not war.  However,  even Star Trek fails to accur…
