NY State Senator Rubén Díaz, Sr Needs A Wake Up Call

Besides being such a divisive and controversial figure (see what he has to say on marriage equality)in the New York State Senate, The Reverend Senator needs to get a little grip on reality.

In a recent New York Times piece on the abortion rate in New York City (which is currently at 41%) Senator Rubén Díaz, Sr was quoted as saying that this was an attack on minorities and went on to further say as per the New York Times, “They might think that we will take over, and that they’ve got to stop us,” said Mr. Díaz, who also is a minister. “What they did, they are killing black and Hispanic children.”

Really, Senator Díaz? Killing black and Hispanic children?  Last time I checked abortion was an option and a CHOICE not a mandatory procedure so please do enlighten us oh, Reverend Senator Rubén Díaz on how “they” are “killing” blacks Hispanics?  Senator Díaz…maybe you should spend less time on the pulpit and more time getting in touch with reality and your constituents before making such ridiculous comments.
