African Americans the Target of Planned Parenthood
January is National Sanctity of Human Life Month and that means a dedicated focus on life ethics, facts and laws, such as Roe v. Wade.
As Ronald Reagan once said, "Simple morality dictates that unless and until someone can prove the unborn human is not alive, we must give it the benefit of the doubt and assume it is alive. And thus, it should be entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." He also said, "An unborn child's property rights are protected, but not his life!" Unfortunately, for minorities this is even more so the truth.
Many don't want to, or won't, believe that Planned Parenthood's founder, Margaret Sanger, was a racist, and that today the largest marketer of abortion, Planned Parenthood, targets minority neighborhoods, but the statistics are staggering clear.
As Rev. Clenard Childress, Founder of BlackGenocide.org, points out, "The most dangerous place for an African American to be is in the womb of their African American mother." Some will very likely take offense at that statement, but let's take a look at just a few of the hard facts:
Centers for Disease Control
-Abortion kills more black Americans than seven leading causes of death combined.
Statistics from The Alan Guttmaucher Institute
-37 percent of all abortions are performed on black women. Non-Hispanic white women, who make up a much larger portion of the population, had 34 percent of the total number of abortions performed.
-For every two African American women that get pregnant one will choose to abort.
-A Black baby is 5 times more likely to be killed in the womb than a White Baby.
-Between 1882 and 1968, 3,446 Blacks were lynched in the U.S. That number is surpassed in less than 3 days by abortion.
-1,784 African-American children are killed each day by the heinous act of abortion.
-Among women ages 15 to 19, the abortion rate was 11.0 per 1,000 among non-Hispanic white women; and 44.3 per 1,000 among non-Hispanic black women.
-3 out of 5 pregnant African-American women will abort their child.
-Since 1973 there has been over 13 million Black children killed and their precious mothers victimized by the U.S. abortion industry.
-With 1/3 of all abortions performed on Black women, the abortion industry has received over 4,000,000,000 (yes, billion) dollars from the Black community.
National Review Online reported, "Sadly, black women were also more likely to obtain riskier abortions late in their pregnancies, while white women were significantly more likely than black women to obtain abortions before 16 weeks.”
Fox News reported, "Since 1973, the year of Roe v. Wade, the share of abortions among black women has consistently been at least twice their share of live births.""
I had the priviledge of interviewing Rev. Childress on my radio show, and he pointed out that, “Seventy-eight percent of all Planned Parenthood’s clinics are located in minoritiy neighborhoods."
I also had the priviledge of interviewing Dr. Alveda King, niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, the country's largest Catholic pro-life organization. She said her uncle was against infanticide and on the side of the unborn, pointing out that the column he wrote for Ebony Magazine prove that he was pro-life.
Dr. Alveda King pointed out that her uncle did receive an award from Margaret Sanger's Planned Parenthood, but that it was a tactic they used to get 'the church' on their side, saying that PP was on the side of wanting to help African Americans. (You can hear her full statement online in our broadcast archives dated 1/17/11). In fact, Margaret Sanger, who was a known eugenist, also had a Negro project, directed at the ‘undesirables.’”
And Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who favors of Roe v. Wade, in July of 2009, stated boldly, "Frankly I had thought that at that time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of."
The film, Maafa 21 Black Genocide in the 21st Century points out even more staggering facts. Slavery, one of the darkest moments in U.S. history, is unthinkable in America today, but as this film points out, blacks continue to be seen as 'undesirables' by the abortion industry.
Let's face it, whether through slavery or abortion (not to mention discrimination for which Dr. King is remembered this month), African Americans have suffered greatly in our nation. Both the acts and attitudes are unthinkable, and I don't care who endorses them, be they former slave owners, or a President of the United States, who supports Planned Parenthood, the unthinkable is never a solution. Not the stealing of life through slavery. Not the mistreatment of life through discrimination. Not the taking of life through abortion.

Whether it's Mothers or Veterans who have given their lives in the cause of freedom, it's the month to remember the heroes and heroines in our lives, and in the life of our nation. Remembering is to give honor, and to give honor is to remember the sacrifices of those who have invested their lives in our well-being. So we encourage everyone to make a special effort this month to do more than just think about, but do something that gives honor to those who deserve it. It's also a month to remember history, for it is absolutely true, that "those who forget history are doomed to repeat it." History is more than just some record of the past, it has great value for contemporary living. So we also encourange everyone to read some history this month (and listen to our shows that connect the dots between history and current events), and begin making a list of those important parts of history you want to grow in your knowledge of, and then make a concerted effort to (re)educate yourself on them and mark them off your list. It's also a good month to begin to write down the significant parts of your history for your posterity to read some day. Don't forget, remember!
