Wages for Sin

Bloodmoney: The Business of Abortion

reviewed by Terrell Clemmons

Narrated by Dr. Alveda King, niece of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Blood Money foregoes political wrangling over rights to reveal some of the dark realities about abortion in America.

Corrupt at Conception

Legal, medical, and scientific expert commentary show how the Roe v. Wade decision decriminalizing abortion was accomplished through a carefully contrived campaign of deceit, false pretenses, and perversions of Constitutional law. For instance, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a co-founder of NARAL (originally the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws, then the National Abortion Rights Action League, now NARAL Pro-Choice America) who carried out or supervised over 75,000 abortions until he saw one via ultrasound, tells how he and others took fabricated statistics on botched abortions to the court in order to prove the need for decriminalization. "I confess that I knew the figures were totally false, and I suppose the others did too," he says. Now in his eighties, Dr. Nathanson is a staunch advocate for unborn life.

Black Genocide

Alveda King's spokesmanship is especially poignant as she reveals the racist disposition of Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, who set out to rid the world of "human weeds," beginning with the Negro population. Blood Money shows how the extermination Sanger envisioned is being carried out today by means of "safe and legal" abortions disproportionately performed on African-American women.

Other black leaders concur. "I think the greatest failure in reference to the abortion issue has been black leadership," comments Rev. Levon Yuille.

I'm terribly, terribly concerned that the black church, black Congressional representatives, and our social organizations such as the NAACP have been deathly silent on this issue. And if silence is consent, then we have this horrific reality that black leadership is helping to perpetrate the genocide of their own people.

Pillage and Plunder for Profit

The most powerful segments of Blood Money are the personal testimonies. Former abortion workers explain the dark modus operandi of the business. "We had a whole plan that sells abortions," says Carol Everett, who operated several abortion facilities in the late 1970s and early 1980s. "It's called sex education. [We'd] become the sex experts in their lives so that they'd turn to us. . . . Our goal was three to five abortions from every girl between the ages of thirteen and eighteen." The younger the girl when she first came in the better—that way she was more likely to become a repeat customer.

Everett discloses how the abortion industry has many ways to make cash registers ring: through the sale of sex education—coed of course, and in schools, away from parents; through the sale of contraceptives—with their known high failure rates; through the sale of abortion itself—the backup plan for contraceptive failure; and, in some cases, through the sale of aborted babies' body parts to researchers. And a portion of abortion-related income is continually reinvested in protectionist politicians who keep all this going.

Reaping the Whirlwind

The testimonies of women who have survived their abortions reveal the bitter fruit of this sinister cycle. "Grief and shame just about buried me at times," says Georgette. "Rather than go through a nine-month crisis pregnancy, I've gone through about 20 years of hell on earth by exercising my right to choose."

"Abortion is a skillfully marketed product sold to a very frightened person in crisis. They buy that product expecting a fix and find it's defective," Carol Everett says. She knows. Carol painfully accepts responsibility for the over 35,000 abortions done at her facilities."But the thing I couldn't deal with," she confesses, her voice cracking, "was the fact that I had taken the life of my own child by abortion."

Kelly, her voice also unsteady, sums up the testimonies of all: "Women are the victims."
