Anti-abortion fliers spark campus outrage
CBS ^ | March 21, 2011

Posted on 03/22/2011 11:50:20 AM PDT by La Lydia

PRINCETON, N.J. -- It has become the talk among African American students at the prestigious Princeton Theological Seminary -- racially charged fliers and postings. All of it is apparently anti-abortion literature. Among the fliers was one that displayed a noose and another with the words "in the new klan lynching is for amateurs."...

"There was a lot of devastation for me, psychological damage, injury, because I saw this as social bullying," student Shirley Thomas said...

The fliers originate from various sources, pointing out the number of African American deaths by abortion. Student Katherine Timpte called the fliers "appalling and tragic and upsetting at all levels."

Another student, Alex Turpin, said he thought whoever was distributing the literature had a "right to voice their opinions," adding "personally, I wouldn't have done it in that way."

A statement from the seminary said it "does not tolerate racial discrimination" and "has policies that both protect freedom of speech and preclude racial harassment of any kind."

On Wednesday, students at the seminary will hold a forum to discuss the images.

"People need to understand that racism is not dead," Thomas said.

These people, AND the school itself, a theological seminary, think this is about racism, not abortion. I am just amazed and appalled.

“People need to understand that racism is not dead,” Thomas said.

...no, and I’m sure “Thomas” and others like her will see to that! It’s a fact that 40% of blacks abort their babies nationwide. 60% in NY! Just a fact. Nothing really.

Princeton Theological Seminary has been an ultra-liberal neo-Christian institution for a long time now. At least since all the true Christian faculty there broke away and started Westminster Theological Seminary about 70 years ago.

It’s now racist to protect the unborn even as black babies are on the top of the list for extermination. College kids are so indoctrinated it’s beyond sad.

How about some FACTS.

“In America today, almost as many African-American children
are aborted as are born.

A black baby is three times more likely to be
murdered in the womb than a white baby.

Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25 percent.

Twice as many African-Americans have died from abortion than have died from AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined.

Every three days, more African-Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire history.

Planned Parenthood operates the nation's largest chain of abortion clinics and almost 80 percent of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods.

About 13 percent of American women are black, but they
submit to over 35 percent of the abortions.”

and much much more info

http://www.klannedparenthood.com/History_of_Abortion_Statistics/

It's racist alright. The white Liberal / Progressive elites
are killing off as many Black babies as they can in the name of “family planning”.

They are terrified that Planned Parenthood, a major player in Democratic politics, might think they had anything to do with this. How do they get jobs if the “right” people think they are “wrong” on the issue of abortion. Abortion has became a major shibboleth of liberalism.

And yet, I once picketed an abortion clinic in a black neighborhood in Oakland, CA with a sign that said

"No abortion, no war/ Stop the rich from killing the poor"

and I got a steady stream of "right on, right on!" from everybody that passed by.

Well, of course.

Good summation.

ALL: Look up Planned Parenthood's founder, Margaret Sanger, and her ties to the eugenics movement...Havelock Ellis...and the like.

Motto was "More from the fit & less from the unfit." And then all the stereotypical negative comments about "stock" from parts of Europe.

See Planned Parenthood’s anti-immigration, population control eugenics supporters:

In 1939, Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger , and member of the American Eugenics Society, began The Negro Project. The Negro Project was but a precursor to what eugenicists wanted to implement on a much larger scale, by convincing leaders in the African American Community to support Planned Parenthood under the guise of “helping the black man.”

“The main objectives of the [proposed] Population Congress is to…apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”
– Margaret Sanger, “Plan for Peace”, 1932 Senate hearings

Read what Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, wrote in a letter to Pathfinder Founder, Clarence Gamble, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation [of Eugenicists] as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Clarence Gamble, mentioned above funded the North Carolina Eugenics Society...Clarence Gamble. Gamble also supported Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Movement. Sanger and many of her board members and presidents were members of the American Eugenics Society.

The Dems that support Planned Parenthood are racist-eugenicists...they just like to operate under phrases like ZPG (Zero Population Control) & NPG (Negative Population Control) -- and guess what % of the "population" they want to "control" (read socially engineer) is minority?

The Democrats can't wait to get in the world's bedrooms! And whenever they fail there, they resort to butchering the pre-borns!

I’m sorry, how is this “racist”?

I think a real racist would encourage black people to get abortions (see Margaret Singer).

Just goes to show going to an Ivy league school doesn’t necessarily mean you’re smart.

Pointing out that abortion hits blacks harder because they abort their kids the most, is not racism.

I swear if conservatives were out there pushing abortion mills on blacks the left would be talking about the abortion holocaust on blacks, the abortion plantation, the abortion klan, keeping the blacks’ numbers down lying to them saying it’s for their benefit...

But the compassionate, smarter libs are behind it, so it must be a beautiful and ever so right thing.

Wow, talk about straining a gnat.

Methinks they protest too much. They don’t want to deal with the fact that black genocide is being committed, but they don’t want to deal with it because to do so would be to limit their “freedom” to copulate without consequence.

So, they get all faux outraged at the messenger.

In my opinion there is a difference in getting out the facts about how abortion has ravaged the black community and putting out fliers from “Klanned Parenthood”. Do some of you really not see that?

Doesn’t bother me at all. I think the message is great there. It is the package it is in.

If I were a black person and someone handed me a flier with a cartoon Klansman on it I would probably have a problem with it. There is no need for it.

No, it is not, it is practiced by the abortion industry that targets poor minorities, who the Planned Parenthood founder wanted to eliminate from our culture by killing their children.

Blacks do not understand that the most dangerous place for any Black to be is in the mother's womb.

More Blacks die in abortuaries EVERY DAY than have died in all of the race-related crimes since the end of the Civil War.

The statistics in this chart are old (the numbers are now much worse):

I see that the students at the “prestigious” Princeton Theological Seminary have their leftist talking points down pat. The comments by these students about their “feelings” on this issue, and about the speech rights of others, are appalling.

Their slant on the issue is programmed propaganda, and that they have been brainwashed to take such an irrational stand is disgusting.

We’re in deep [unladylike word] gang, and we must reverse this trend by cleaning out the schools, or all will be lost to a generation of know-nothing, willingly enslaved, marxist idiots like these students.

Well, the abortion racket really is a filthy dirty trick on the black people of America no matter how you slice it. A dirty trick against which the Klan and its ilk, lynch law and all, look like mere gnats. White people long ago stopped holding black people in scorn because they were black. Now black people scorn their intended place along with all other people as God’s handiwork by living so loose that it would put a chimpanzee to shame.

The imagery of the Klan is extreme, but the point being made is accurate and dead serious.

So, instead of replying to the points I made you decided to pick two words? No I do not have a problem with that. Do I think it works? Not sure. Seems to turn more people off to Pro Life activists.

If you can’t see the difference in driving around in those trucks and handing a random black person something with a Klansman on it then I guess we have to agree to disagree.
