Planned Parenthood targets African-American music festival: black pro-life leaders furious

July 12, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Black pro-life leaders are condemning Planned Parenthood’s sponsorship of the African-American 2012 Essence Music Festival, pointing to the abortion organization’s history of involvement in eugenics and targeting minorities.

“The 3500 black deaths linked to the Klan pale in comparison to Planned Parenthood’s 15 million plus Black deaths,” said Dr. Day Gardner, the president of the National Black Pro-Life Union, in response to Planned Parenthood’s sponsorship of the music festival. “Both the KKK and Planned Parenthood share the same ‘end game.’”

“Planned Parenthood is using the 2012 Essence Music Festival to portray themselves as an organization that cares about Black women,” said Walter Hoye II, of the National Black Pro-life Coalition. “This satanic stronghold and sadistic sanctuary is the only strategy Planned Parenthood has left to retreat to, in order to maintain their illegitimate air of credibility in the public square.”

According to official U.S. data, black Americans account for approximately 36.9 percent (2007) of the total U.S. abortion numbers, despite accounting for only 12.9 percent (in 2009) of the total U.S. population.

Numerous pro-life campaigns in the past several years have drawn attention to this disparity in the abortion rate, with many singling out Planned Parenthood, the country’s number one abortion provider, for allegedly targeting blacks.

The annual New Orleans music fest lasted four days, from July 5-8, and showcased African-American culture and talent.  Planned Parenthood, in addition to sponsoring the event, had a booth where they provided birth control counseling and information.  They also screened the film “A Vital Service: African American Stories of Reproductive Health Care.”

“They consider killing our children ‘a vital service’ and even created a film to sell gullible Blacks on the idea that we need to kill our children if we are to have successful and/or fulfilling lives,” Dr. Gardner said. 

The twenty-minute film shows clips of black men and women praising Planned Parenthood’s services.  Mary, a post-abortive woman in the film, says, “Additional children would have definitely put a strain on my family, my marriage, my children…Three children is a good number.  I only have so much lap space, I only have so much arm space, I only have so much time in the day.” Of her consultation with Planned Parenthood she says, “There were some tears.” But, she concludes, “It’s tough, but we have to be brave.”

The movie also shows a clip of Courtney, a Planned Parenthood client, saying, “You can say ‘abstinence’ all day, but it clearly isn’t working.”

Dr. Gardner criticized the film for having “failed to mention the link between breast cancer and abortion,” adding, “abortion is the number one killer of African Americans—killing more Black people than, cancer, strokes, heart disease, violent crime and all other deaths combined!”

Rev. Tim McDonald spoke in the film about the “forces that are trying to destroy” Planned Parenthood, referring to a billboard of a baby with a caption that read, “Black Children Are an Endangered Species.”

“We are not a species,” he said in the form of a rebuttal. “We are God’s children, created in God’s image.”

“It’s sad that so many so called black ‘celebrities’ will sell out our race, our culture and our pro-life heritage in order to obtain or prolong their 15 minutes of fame—even if it means trampling on the tiny bodies of dead black babies,” Dr. Gardner said. 

“Many Blacks who are blinded by bling are oblivious to the fact that Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger affiliated herself with the Ku Klux Klan and had ties to Hitler’s regime.”

Dr. Gardner concluded with a suggestion to the music fest, “Next year, why not ask the KKK to sponsor your music festival?”

The Democrat Party would collapse if Blacks truly understood what the left is doing to them.

All you need to do is go to any “Democratic Stronghold” to see that the KKK couldn’t, in their wildest dreams, have done the damage to the African American community that self-appointed “Black leaders” like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have done.

She went on, “and, even though I already have 3 kids, I still don’t know what causes them! Thank God planned parenthood can kill any new babies until I figure out where they come from!”

Not sure what else to say.

Apparently, some black Americans are realizing liberal Democrats have been killing their generations for decades while their political foes, conservative Republicans, have been trying to stop it.

A little too ironic, don’t you think?

Guess who promoted anal sex as cheap birth control in Africa?
Int’l Planned Parenthood and the World “Health” Org.
What AIDS epidemic?

Guess which racists demonized DDT, because it was saving millions of lives in the third world?

Shhh, the dems don’t want the secret to get out.

These uppity ministers are just coconuts.

Don’t pay any attention to the man behind the curtain.

“The Democrat Party would collapse if Blacks truly understood what the left is doing to them.”

But it won’t because the majority of Blacks love to keep themselves down on the plantation.

I think that they’re beginning to understand how devastating their political choices have been. I guess we will have some kind of idea about that in November.

About 25 years ago, the mayor of our city was going to give an award to the local head of PP for the “great” work they had been doing. His wife was going to accompany him. I knew that a letter to His Honor would probably not reach him, so I did what I thought was the next best thing. I wrote a letter to his wife and I explained to her the background of PP and its racist beginnings and past. I educated her about Margaret Sanger and her eugenics program which coincided to Hitler’s eugenics program in Europe.

When it came time for the award ceremony, the mayor’s wife was a no-show. I don’t know if my letter had anything to do with her absence, but I like to think that maybe it did.

And PP and the left are desperate to *prevent* blacks from figuring out that they are being ethnically exterminated.

Remember when that large banner about this was unfurled on the side of a building in a black inner city area? PP lost its marbles, and used every bit of its pull to get that banner taken down, to stop that message from getting out.

This was because they are trying to kill as many black babies as they can, as fast as they can. It also means that PP is extremely vulnerable here.

Just a single person could distribute hundreds of one page flyers at the Essence Music Festival and create absolute chaos for PP. They would have to work fast, and be brave, because they would almost certainly be physically attacked and maybe arrested.

The flyers themselves would have to be carefully designed to get the message out as fast as possible, to as many people as possible, and in a way that the concert goers would understand and react to.

High risk, high reward.

Good, but will they throw their support to the Marxist a second time?

Regrettably, there’s no recent evidence to suggest your tag is completely dubious. I’m holding out for hope, however. as I can’t bring myself to the belief it’s a lost cause.

I pray.
