In Leonard Pitts Jr.’s column recently, he scoffed at Donald Trump’s opinion that Oakland was the most dangerous place in the world.
Research shows Oakland is considered the No. 3 most dangerous city in America. Pitts said maybe the danger was in the water in Flint, Michigan, or Wall Street. While those are significant, the most dangerous place to human life in America is actually the woman’s uterus. One in four of those in the womb, or 3,000 daily, are aborted.
Sad to say, that statistic is even higher for minority pregnancies. Whether you consider what is in the uterus a baby, or a “blob,” it adds up to almost 1 million people every year who are not born. These are people who will not grow up, work, play, invent, change the world. Think of that social and financial impact. Perhaps Trump and Pitts both have it wrong.
