Welterweight boxer Floyd Mayweather does not enjoy the worldwide popularity and admiration that Sugar Ray Leonard and Muhammad Ali did during their boxing prime. But Mayweather’s been on a winning streak at my house.
 
Last week he won the world championship title in a welterweight unification bout against Marcos Maidana that went the distance. Even more important, a few days prior to the fight Mayweather stepped into the ring against America’s cultural heavyweights and came out against abortion.
 
The champ announced that the real reason he and his fiancé, Shantel Jackson, called it quits was Jackson got an abortion over his objections. Or as Mayweather put it, “I'm totally against killing babies. [And] she killed our twin babies."
 
Naturally the death lobby and its cheerleaders pounced. Someone called Jessica Luther wrote, "Mayweather posting that announcement (basically called her a baby killer) plus ultrasound photos is abusive behavior." That’s rich. Telling the truth is termed “abusive” but actually killing two innocent babies is merely a “choice.”
 
But Mayweather isn’t the only black American that is telling the truth regarding the abortion-industrial complex.
 
Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., gave a speech recently at the University of Missouri where she also told the truth when she called abortion in the black community a "modern-day genocide." Reporter Courtney Scott says Dr. King used a series of startling statistics to make her point.
 
Since abortion was legalized by the Supreme Court in the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, more than 16,000,000 black babies have been killed. If they had lived, those Americans would have almost been equal to the population of New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston combined.
 
In fact, if those babies had been allowed to live the black population of the U.S. would be 60.5 million, instead of the 44.5 million it is.
 
Dr. King pointed out the wisdom of her grandfather (and for that matter Floyd Mayweather) who said, “The woman has a right to choose what happens to her body, but that baby is not her body.”
 
Yet the culture continues to celebrate abortion and the Democrat party incorporates infant death into its very fiber. Just this week the new Democrat governor of Virginia, former Clinton bundler Terry McAuliffe, was looking for a way to circumvent a law passed last year that would require abortion clinics to meet the same medical standards of out-patient surgery clinics.
 
The thinking being that since the product of a "procedure" is death anyway, why worry about medical technology and standards?
 
It takes courage for Dr. King and champion Mayweather to swim against the cultural tide. I’m hoping more of us will join them.
