Abortion is a Marxian Tool

In 1848, Karl Marx and Frederick Engels published a small booklet filled with radical delusions about upending traditional social structures and capitalism: “The Communist Manifesto.” They believed societal inequality was the fault of the middle and upper class, and the solution to the perceived economic oppression would be found with a communist revolution.

In the strategy to overthrow capitalism, they recognized the strength of the family unit, calling for its destruction:

Abolition of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists. On what foundation is the present family, the bourgeois family based? On capital, private gain.

For Marx and Engels, to topple a capitalist society, the family structure must go as well; and it is in this context that we currently see the greatest attack on the family of all, abortion.

Last week, an anti-abortion activist in D.C. informed law enforcement she was in possession of mutiliated babies, all killed in a D.C. abortion clinic. She and fellow activists obtained the children’s remains from a medical waste company, with the intention of providing the children with a proper burial. From this news story, graphic photos emerged, shocking many. Some of the children pictured appeared full-term, and some of their wounds indicated illegal methods of killing.

Given the circumstances of the bloodshed, it appears the public has a renewed interest in the discussion of abortion. With this, there is an opportunity to shed light on the use of abortion to push the Marxist agenda. 

Abortion is undeniably, and deliberately, decimating the integrity of the family unit. Per the statistics of the abortion industry, in 2017 in the U.S., there were a total of 862,320 abortions performed. This means there were at least 862,320 mothers who turned against the very life they were meant to nurture; that 862,320 fathers absconded from their role as the protector (or were powerless to protect); and more than 862,320 innocent children were intentionally destroyed.

These statistics show the progress of communism in the U.S. Abortion is a primary tool used by Marxists to assault the natural architecture of parent and child. Marx and Engels wrote, “The bourgeois claptrap about the family and education, about the hallowed co-relation of parent and child….” Yes, it is a sacred relationship, one the Marxists seek to destroy; and what better way to avert the creation of a family than by preventing the birth of a child.
