WASHINGTON, June 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., joined African American leaders on Capitol Hill to ask Congress to stop funding Planned Parenthood, the nations largest abortion business.
"The curtain over Planned Parenthoods racism has been pulled away," said Dr. King. "It's on record as being willing to accept donations to abort only black babies. Congress wouldn't give the public's money to the Klan, it shouldn't give it to Planned Parenthood."
The group, which included several African American religious leaders, met with pro-life Congressional leaders Chris Smith (NJ), Mike Pence (IN), Joseph Pitts (PA), Trent Franks (AZ), and John Boehner (OH), along with Dr. Kings home state Congressmen Paul Broun (GA) to urge support for Rep. Pence's Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act. The group also asked Georgia Congressman Sanford Bishop to support the measure, which would insure that all federal family planning funding would be given to groups that do not perform abortions. Last year alone, Planned Parenthood received over $300 million in government grants and contracts while performing over 250,000 abortions.
"Planned Parenthood admits that it made over $100 million in profits last year from its businesses," added Dr. King. "There's no reason, none at all, for Congress to be giving our money to a billion dollar enterprise like Planned Parenthood that preys on women and targets African Americans and other minorities with its deadly offerings."

I’ve never understood all this planned parenthood stuff. Is this why schools have to explain the results of sexual intercourse?
Or to public radio, TV, starving artists, universities with billion $ endowments, the worthless UN, etc
The American people are being mugged on a minutely basis
Liberals aren't about protecting minority babies from abortion...they are about advancing their agenda. OBlama is all for abortion....the good Christian and African-American that he is dontchya know!
“The choice is between life and death. Choose Life.”
“Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother. The mother decides his or her fate.” - Dr. Aleda King
Liberals are racists and population controllers.
