Luke 1:41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
In a piece of good news in the struggle to protect life in the womb, the National Black ProLife Coalition issued a statement thanking the Congress for voting to defund Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider (a vote in the Senate is still pending).
The NBPC has also applauded the efforts of Congressman Paul Baron for speaking out on the fact that African American women are by far the most targeted for abortions in the United States by Planned Parenthood.
“Under the guise of family planning, black babies have been aborted at 5x the rate of whites, yet Planned Parenthood clamors for more, wanting taxpayer dollars to continue funding their genocidal agenda”, said Arnold Culbreath of Protecting Black Life. “As they rush to turn 100% of their clinics into abortion mills and build larger facilities in urban areas where blacks reside, it is clear they are carrying out their founder’s Negro Project, designed to control black births.”
As we have shown in previous articles, Planned Parenthood has a history rife with racism and genocide targeted at ethnic minorities, especially African Americans.
LiveAction, the college student-run organization that does sting operations to expose Planned Parenthood’s illegal practices, is also again sounding the alarm to legislators as Planned Parenthood not only turns a blind eye to potential statutory rape, but also provided services and even business advice to undercover actors posing as pimps working with teen prostitutes.
President Obama, the nation’s first Black President, recently criticized the LiveAction videos, saying:
“I think some of these issues get manufactured and they get a lot of attention on the blogosphere,” Obama responded. “I think that Planned Parenthood, in the past, has done good work.”
Congressmen Mike Pence, who is sponsoring the bill to defund Planned Parenthood, provided some clarity: “”The headlines and years of investigations speak for themselves. In 2002, Parenthood was found civilly liable in Arizona for failure to report statutory rape. In 2008 it violated reporting laws in Indiana and California. In 2009 it instructed a girl in Tennessee to lie about her age so she could get an abortion without her parents’ knowledge,” he stated.
It’s clear that despite being an icon, pioneer and hero in the African American community, President Obama is set on continuing a pro-life agenda and ignoring the tragic racist history of the abortion industry. As Christians, we should be ready to speak out against the killing of children in the womb as well as any racism in society. And of course, pray The President, members of the Senate and those in the community at large, have a change of heart.
