A terrible tragedy

“I can’t breathe”. The sorrowful last words of George Floyd brought tears to many in the past few weeks. While people of all races across the world are screaming for justice for Black people, there still are quite a few who remain threatened by the colour of peoples’ skin!

According to a Special Report by Pierre Moore, the Chief Justice Correspondent for ABC News, the four officers arrested for Floyd’s death apparently intended to punish him because he was suspected of using  a counterfeit twenty-dollar bill to buy cigarettes. Their excuse for brutality was possibly due to a petty crime.

Bias, racism, eugenics are just synonyms for hate. According to, Eugenics is the study of or belief in the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species or a human population, especially by such means as discouraging reproduction by persons having genetic defects or presumed to have inheritable undesirable traits (negative eugenics), or encouraging reproduction by persons presumed to have inheritable desirable traits (positive eugenics).

How many do not even get the opportunity to breathe because of the abortion clinics that exist mostly in poor communities of the USA because of eugenics or people who want to rid societies of Blacks?

Maafa21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America, is a documentary produced by Life Dynamics Inc that reveals how eugenics and population control has systematically been used to reduce Black births.

“Maafa” is a Swahili word which means “a terrible tragedy,” referring to the time of the Middle Passage during the slave trade. The “21” in the title refers to the 21st century, because, in reality, the ‘Maafa’ has not ended. It is still being carried out today (Live Action’s YouTube Channel).

The Maafa of today according to that documentary was influenced by the eugenics movement traced back to the mid-1900s.

The words “population control” and “family planning” were code words for getting rid of the “undesirables” (the minorities – Blacks, Hispanics etc.) through contraception.

At BOMA-TT we continue to identify the Billings Ovulation Method as Natural Fertility Regulation and not ‘Natural Family Planning’ as we are devoid from any association with ‘Family Planning’ in this way.

Maafa21 (available on YouTube or exposes the sheer ugliness behind the origins of some abortion-providers and the main proponents for contraception.

The time of slavery here in the Caribbean left Black people with a massive scar. According to Archbishop Jason Gordon (‘Shepherd’s Corner’ July 26, 2018) men were more likely to revolt in protection of their families, they were purposely separated, women raped in front of men deliberately, and much more. Many families became more matrifocal as a result.

Due to hundreds of years of trauma, these fragmented and hurt people suffered infidelity, broken families, and instability in the home.

Men roamed and took no responsibility for even their own children. The Sexual Revolution that separated the permanent bond of sex through union and procreation, further destroyed God’s plan for family life.

Sex became something for pleasure and leisure, our Archbishop continued. He stated nowadays the order is sex, babies and, if necessary, marriage! We have become unfamiliar with God’s plan, which is marriage, sex and then babies. Use of natural methods reintroduce God’s plan for families.

Married couples who use the Billings Method remain open to life. “Marriage is a sacrament between two baptised persons that, when lived faithfully, signifies how Christ loves the Church and communicates that love to us” (Joy-Filled Marriage: God’s Plan for Love, pg 25).

Christ’s love is (and the married couple’s love should be) free, total, faithful and fruitful. One wonders if our country’s Family Planning unit is aware of the origins of “population control” and “family planning”. We appear to have copied the American model of controlling our population size.

It is hoped that we would instead formulate our own model of responsible parenthood (see Fruitful and Responsible Love by Pope St John Paul II), to control family size based on God’s model which is natural, highly effective, life-giving and with no negative health implications.
