Father Michael Pfleger: Ignoring Black Teens Is a Form of Abortion

Dr. Boyce Watkins Meets With Father Michael Pfleger To Discuss Violence In Chicago


In a candid interview with Dr. Boyce Watkins about gang violence, Father Michael Pfleger of The Faith Community of St. Sabina in Chicago’s Auburn Gresham neighborhood, provides an explicit definition of abortion. It is his belief that anything stopping another human being from fulfilling their God-given purpose is a form of abortion.

Father Pfleger also discusses the Peace Tournament he organized that included four of Chicago’s most powerful gangs, or as he references them,”organizations”  that came together to play a peaceful game of basketball. He explains how he continues to assist members of the organizations by helping them acquire their education and by prepping them for jobs.

A portion of the interview are transcribed below. The full interview can be seen here.

On the true meaning of abortion:

We always link abortion to something that goes on in a womb, in a clinic. If we believe that every single human being has a G0d-given destiny and purpose then anything, anything that cuts short that person from reaching that destiny, that divine purpose — that’s a form of abortion. We just narrow abortion. So bad education is abortion. No jobs are abortion. Racism is abortion. Poverty is abortion. So when we start to look at that way… So you know, let’s stop aborting these kids out here.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
