|Cuban Seminary Educated (1999-2001) Baptist (is going to school in Cuba allowed?) - State Rep. Charles Van Zant has 7 kids and wants to make sure you have kids too.|
House members have added a race component to their anti-choice bill that will make the death of an unborn child a separate crime from any crime against the mother. The other component of the legislation bans abortions based on an unborn child’s gender or race. The bill passed the Florida House. The bill's second part would require Doctor's to sign a statement that says the abortion wasn't performed because of race or gender. I think that second part is just an add on to the real reason for the bill. It is a complete charade by Republicans. They are trying to get a fetus recognized as a separate person, disguising that goal in a bunch of crap. Blacks House members are not fools, they know when the racial card is being used.
When Van Zandt, who sponsored the legislation said:
“In America alone — without the Nazi Holocaust, without the Ku Klux Klan — Planned Parenthood and other abortionists have reduced our black population by more than 25 percent since 1973...”According to the Miami Herald, Black members of the House responded:
Rep. Darryl Rouson, a black Democrat from St. Petersburg, said he was insulted by the remarks, and accused Van Zant of using protection of African Americans to advance an antiabortion agenda.This use of anti-race discrimination is shameless as is the reference to the Holocaust by this Florida House member.
Another African-American Democrat, Rep. Cynthia Stafford of Miami, said the notion that backers of the bill were standing up against discrimination against blacks and women was “a bald-faced lie.”
