Ick. Just. Ick.

Rep. Trent Franks: African-Americans were better off under slavery. Here's the quote:
FRANK: In this country, we had slavery for God knows how long. And now we look back on it and we say “How brave were they? What was the matter with them? You know, I can’t believe, you know, four million slaves. This is incredible.” And we’re right, we’re right. We should look back on that with criticism. It is a crushing mark on America’s soul. And yet today, half of all black children are aborted. Half of all black children are aborted. Far more of the African-American community is being devastated by the policies of today than were being devastated by policies of slavery. And I think, What does it take to get us to wake up?
If you're going to make anti-abortion statements, at least don't try to make light of the devastation done in the name of slavery.
