Charlotte Pence on the Most Important Social Justice Issue for Millennial’s

We have a great history in this nation of putting an end to great dehumanizing injustices. Let’s take on this giant of injustice together.

“Social justice” is arguably the most powerful political buzzword of our generation. Social justice is the idea that any disparities between social status, wealth, or even biological predeterminism can be rectified with, well, “social” justice.

While we have criminal justice in the courts where blind Lady Justice’s scales make right what has been wronged by those who violate the rights of others, social justice seeks to apply that scale to society.

That is to say, social justice seeks to create a true sense of equality between all people, ending the dehumanization of racism or sexism or sundry “phobias.”

But what is the issue our nation currently faces that dehumanizes a particular group more than any other?

Charlotte Pence, the daughter of Vice President Mike Pence and student at Harvard Divinity School, penned a powerful op-ed in the Washington Times last week framing abortion as the social justice issue for millennial’s.

Abortion, Pence says, is “oppression in its barest form.”

“Yes, abortion is a violation of providing life to a human being — but it should also be acknowledged as oppression in its barest form,” she writes. “It ostracizes the weaker members of society, and it places a particular burden on minority communities.”

She explains:

According to the Guttmacher Institute, abortion rates continue to vary by race and ethnicity. In reference to a study published by the American Journal of Public Health, abortion rates have declined in recent years — but not across every populace. While white women had the lowest abortion rate, black women “were over represented among abortion patients and had the highest abortion rate.”

Income level is also increasingly a major player in the number of abortions. “In 2014, 49% of abortion patients had family incomes below 100% of the federal poverty level, a significant increase from 42% in 2008.” Not only does this show us the majority of people who are aborted, but also the communities that abortion affects.

It is well-established that abortion has always targeted the very same groups of people that the so-called “Social Justice Warriors” on the left seek to create equality for.

They come from the perspective that a baby in the womb is an inconvenience, a burden; in essence, less than human.

How ironically SJW’s dehumanize the unborn members of the same demographic groups they claim to champion.

This is why, Pence argues, abortion must be the most important social justice cause of our generation. Social justice defines how millennials relate to the world, she says, from how we shop to the way we engage in the culture.

To bring an end to the great injustice of abortion must start with the culture and arguing for, well, social justice for the unborn.

“Abolitionists worked to abolish slavery and give meaning to each individual life, rather than seeing a person as disposable property,” Pence explains.

The unborn, and those affected by abortion, are the ultimate marginalized members of society, Pence says, “whose voices we are not hearing because their future has been decided for them.”

“We have taken away their ownership and agency by limiting their ability to fulfill their potential,” she concludes, “In doing this, we provide oppression with a strong foundation to take root in our midst — a foothold that history has shown is not easily broken.”

We have a great history in this nation of putting an end to great dehumanizing injustices. Let’s take on this giant of injustice together.

VIDEO: Biden Comes Unglued When Fox News Reporter Asks Him About Ukrainian Scandal

Not a good look for you, bro!!

You have to hand it to Joe Biden. When confronted about his alleged Ukrainian scandal, the former VP dodged, deflected, and blamed President Trump like he had that card up his sleeve the entire time. Check this out… From Fox News: Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden exploded on Saturday when Fox News reporter Peter Doocy confronted him over his Ukraine scandal, claiming that he did nothing wrong and that the media should be looking into President Donald Trump. Doocy’s question for Biden centered around Biden’s admission that he used his position as Vice President to shut down a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating a company that was employing Biden’s son. Doocy pondered, “Mr. Vice President, how many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings?” Biden screeched, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. And here’s what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that’s what happened, that appears to be what happened, you should be looking at Trump.” But there’s a problem… https://twitter.com/dmartosko/status/1175480222164160512?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175480222164160512&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1175471237138485249?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175471237138485249&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra Trump weighed in… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1175392716110401543?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175392716110401543&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia. And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount. Now, this… From The Hill: Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump…

WATCH: Biden Wants to Put Male Prisoners Who Identify As Women In Prison With Female Convicts

Hmm. What could be the problem there!?

With each passing day, Democrats become sillier and sillier. Saturday appeared to belong to Joe Biden, who may or may not still be the liberal party frontrunner. Check out Joe’s thoughts on mentally ill male convicts who think they are women… Joe Biden – Male convicts that identify as female will be housed with women. “In prison the determination should be that your sexual identity is defined by what you say it is not what in fact the prison says it is.” https://twitter.com/DaveNYviii/status/1175229023603089409?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175229023603089409&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwoke-joe-biden-says-put-male-prisoners-who-identify-as-women-into-female-prison-pop-because-thats-totally-sane-video%2F Check out this story Biden swears by, even though it is completely made up… From Daily Wire: Last Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden told a rapt audience in New Hampshire a poignant story revolving around a Navy captain who rappelled down a 60-foot ravine to rescue a fallen comrade, but rebuffed Biden’s attempt to pin a Silver Star on his chest because his daring actions to save the soldier came too late. There was one problem: Biden made the story up. The Washington Post reports that Biden told the story of a four-star general who asked Biden, when he was vice-president, to take a dangerous trip to Kunar province in Afghanistan so he could put the Silver Star on the chest of a Navy captain who had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and brought back the body of an American soldier. […] Addressing the silent crowd, Biden concluded, “This is the God’s truth. My word as a Biden.” Liar, liar, pants on fire. It’s time for Joe to concede. That’s saying something, considering this guy was the Democrat frontrunner. It’s looking more and more grim for the former VP who has yet to be endorsed by Barack Obama.
