Skip to comments.Sharpton and Obama Ignore Planned Parenthood's Racist Underbelly
Posted on 02/28/2011 3:45:01 AM PST by Scanian
Reverend Al Sharpton called a press conference this past week to denounce an anti-abortion billboard overlooking New York City's Soho district. The sign depicting a young black girl read "The Most Dangerous Place for an African-American is in the Womb." Sharpton's spokesman characterized the message as "classic racial profiling."
The pro-life non-profits responsible for the billboard positioned it in close proximity to three Planned Parenthood facilities who reported performing 17,000 abortions between them for the year 2010.
Sharpton's charge of racial profiling prompted Lifealways to remove the sign before the Friday press conference. The fact that for every 1000 African-American births there are 1,489 aborted black babies in New York City did not convince the Reverend that something is going on in his community besides racism.
There's an old African proverb that states "if you want to know the end, look at the beginning." The adage is good advice for African-Americans like Sharpton who still defend Planned Parenthood. The billion dollar international organization has never been a friend to people of color, so it's devastating that civil rights activists as well as the first black president would not do their homework. When confronted with pro-life activist Lila Rose's undercover videos of PP personnel condoning underage sex trafficking, Obama stated that "in the past they did good work."
Yes, offering indigent women routine Pap smears and breast exams seems laudable until overwhelming evidence reveals the organization's true historical purpose.

If Sharpton saw a billboard with burnt toast on on it he would call it racist.
The Billboard spoke the truth, and the quickest way to anger a liberal is with the truth.
What do these two care? Babies don’t own money and they can’t vote Democrat.
“60 percent of black babies do not make it out of the womb”
I have always thought it was about population control.
Sharpton once denounced the stereotype that dark storm clouds shoot lighting as the “racism inherent in a cumulus cloud society”.
And yes, telling the truth is obviously more offensive than the truth itself.
I am convinced that this is because....when people turn their backs on God, they lose their common sense. Their minds become clouded with their own sin.
