Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

Darwinism, Racism and Abortion

This year marks an infamous sesquicentennial. One hundred fifty years ago, Charles Darwin established his theory of evolution when he published On the Origin of Species. While Darwin’s theory has been proven to have more holes than a block of quality Swiss cheese, its impact is unmistakable. When the philosopher Herbert Spencer coined the phrase “survival of the fittest,” the society-shaping impact of the materialistic theory began to be realized. Evolution was not simply a scientific theory of origins; it was a new foundation for a holistic atheistic worldview. Now creation could be explained away, circumventing Psalm 19.

But there is a significant problem when God is removed as the originator and sustainer of creation. If time + chance are the driving forces behind the universe, then man is faced with a choice—either he will simply “go with the flow” and sink into the pits of despair as he watches society crumble around him, or he will muster all his effort to attempt to spur evolution in a utopian direction. This is the path that was chosen by Spencer, Dewey (the acknowledged father of modern public education) and others. Their teachings and writings inspired men like Marx and Hitler and drove many of the “isms” of the 20th century.

While the memories of bloody Nazi and Communist regimes haunt us, they are not the most destructive offspring of Darwinism. The most destructive offspring is the multi-billion dollar abortion industry. Despite the propaganda spouted by current abortion proponents, the industry was birthed as a way to “perfect” the human race. It was the most logical choice of Social Darwinists to accomplish the benign-sounding ideology of eugenics.

Simply stated, eugenics is social engineering designed to rid society of those deemed to be weak and inferior--Spencer's survival of the fittest put into practice. Hitler practiced it in his way with the gas chambers of Auschwitz. Marx’s version came to fruition in Stalin’s Soviet Gulags. America’s version of eugenics has been promoted and practiced for generations by abortionists. Margaret Sanger was a radical proponent of eugenics. That’s why she opened her first abortion clinic in 1916—a clinic which would eventually grow into the multi-billion dollar abortion mill, Planned Parenthood.

It is an indisputable fact that the modern abortion industry was founded on the atheistic concept that the human race can “evolve” through human intervention and manipulation—also known as survival of the fittest. As a way to accomplish this, people like Margaret Sanger promoted birth control and abortion in the poorest neighborhoods, slums and ghettos—specifically targeting minorities which she deemed inferior. The founding philosophy has been very successful as still today, the overwhelming majority of abortions kill minority babies. It can be argued that, as a means to racial “purity”, abortion continues to be exponentially more effective than Hitler’s gas chambers. According to Lynn Vincent of World Magazine in an article titled, “Black Genocide”:
Ninety-four percent of all abortion doctors are located in metropolitan areas, with seven in 10 of these in predominantly minority-populated communities, according to Care Net, a Virginia-based coalition of more than 1,100 pregnancy resource centers. The result: African-American and Hispanic women, who together make up about one-quarter of the female population, account for 57 percent of the 1.2 million abortions performed in the United States each year. In some urban areas, abortions among minority women now equal the number of live births.
As America rightly celebrates the symbolic triumph over racism by electing our first black president, isn’t it ironic that he and his strongest allies are a staunch advocates of the practice that is promoted as a way to eliminate his race altogether?

Darwinism, abortion and racism all stem from the same worldview—a worldview where man is the arbiter of his own fate and the master of his own destiny. Thank God that His Word shows us differently.
