San Francisco has yet another probably unconstitutional reparations program giving money to pregnant black women. It’s reportedly spreading throughout the state.
The Abundant Birth Project began in June 2021 to serve pregnant women with $1,000 monthly payments over 12 months to 150 people. The program is intended to “reduce the racial birth disparities by easing economic stress.”
It’s based on race. That is not an American principle as we desperately cling to our Founding and reject the Marxist madness of Universal Basic Income (UBI).
On Tuesday, San Francisco’s Department of Public announced a $5 million grant in state funding to expand the program in Alameda, Contra Costa, Los Angeles, and Riverside counties for the next two to three years.
The city said it would serve another 425 mothers and “other birthing parents” with funds from the California Department of Social Services.
Far-Left San Francisco Mayor London Breed is promoting the program.
The Abundant Birth Project has proven to be successful in San Francisco and brings an innovative, equitable approach to addressing disproportionate health impacts largely among black families, which is why I committed to investing $1.5 million over the next two years to grow the program in our City and neighboring counties,’
“This guaranteed income program helps ease some of the financial burdens that all too often keep mothers from being able to prioritize their own health and ultimately impact the health of their babies and family.”
Robert Woodson Sr., the founder of the Woodson Center, stated the number one killer of Black people is not the police — it’s abortion. Others agree, stating it’s not gang violence, gun violence, heart attack, stroke, obesity, HIV, high blood pressure, or diabetes. It’s abortion, and Black women are targeted 3-5 times more than white women.
According to CDC, 13.4% of the entire U.S. population is Black, yet 36.9% of all abortions are Black.
