"People tell me nothing has happened, that nothing ever happens to white abortionists who leave young black women dead. I'm hurting real bad and want some justice for Belinda and all other women who go like sheep to slaughter."Nothing has changed in the quarter of a century since Mattie Byrd penned those words in an angry letter to the Los Angeles District Attorney. Her daughter, 37-year-old Belinda Ann Byrd, had undergone a supposedly safe and legal abortion performed by Stephen Pine at Inglewood Women's Hospital on January 24, 1987. Belinda was left unattended for three hours after the abortion, and even after she was found unresponsive, staff at Inglewood delayed an additional two hours before transferring her to a hospital with appropriate emergency services. Belinda never regained consciousness, and died on January 27.
Belinda had been one of 74 women rushed through Inglewood's single operating room that day, and one of 24 whose abortions were performed in the final two hours of the day. Belinda remained comatose until her death on January 27. In the wake of a series of abortion deaths at Inglewood, the authorities inspected the place. Among other things, they caught an abortionist writing post-operative examination notes without even examining the patients.
Fast forward to July 21, 2012. Another young Black woman lies bleeding out after an abortion. Her name is Tonya Reaves. Just like Belinda, she is left languishing at the facility for hours before finally being taken to a properly equipped hospital. Like Belinda, she bleeds to death.
And her abortionist, Mandy Gittler, has, like Stephen Pine, blithely continued to practice, unhindered by the decision to let a young Black woman bleed to death on her watch. She, like Pine, remains above reproach for killing a young Black woman. There is, you see, there is one kind of white-on-Black violence that the Left will turn a blind eye to.
If you're white and you want to kill Blacks, just open an abortion clinic. Far from being a pariah, you'll be a hero.
"People tell me nothing has happened, that nothing ever happens to white abortionists who leave young black women dead. I'm hurting real bad and want some justice for Belinda and all other women who go like sheep to slaughter."I'm sorry, Mrs. Byrd. Justice isn't coming. It didn't come for Belinda, or for Eurice Agbagaa, or for Ellen Williams, or Antonesha Ross or Tamiia Russell or Synthia Dennard or Tonya Reaves or any of the other Black women killed by abortionists. It will never come until the Left starts to care more about people than they do about abortion. And that's not going to happen any time soon.
