Ohio Democrat Representative Janine Boyd is targeting black babies with a detectable heartbeat for abortion. Her amendment to a heartbeat bill before the legislature states that “African-American women shall be exempt from the requirements in sections 2919.192 to 2919.196 of the Revised Code.” Boyd defended the deliberate race-based lack of protection for black babies in slavery terms, saying: “I consider the slave trade and how black slaves were considered like cattle and put out to stud in order to create generations of more slaves….” Mark Harrington, president of the pro-life group Created Equal, responded: “To suggest that only African-American babies with detectable heartbeats should be killed in Ohio is shocking racism not befitting of a representative of the Ohio House.” Indeed. The Democratic Party has become the party of radical liberation…but only for humans already born.
