At least 10,000 abortion opponents were bused into the city from all over California, and from outside the state, for a morning rally...

    Anti-Choice Black Clergy Charge Genocide By Erika Beras WeNews correspondent The Reverend Clenard Childress preaches that abortion is a form of black genocide. While his message is discordant for pro-choice African Americans, it doesn't seem to surprise anti-abortion leaders. Some began recruiting black clergy in the 1990s. (WOMENSENEWS)--When the Rev. Clenard Childress addresses his congregation he speaks of Jesus, of loving thy neighbor and about black genocide. "Abortion," he says, "is the greatest injustice to black women in this country since slavery." From the pulpit of his New Jersey baptist church Childress preaches about many of the same subjects he...

    What a blessed Martin Luther King legacy lives in Alveda C. King. In the few minutes I heard this morning, Dr. King took a strong conservative, often biblically based stance on several issues: abortion, marriage, chastity, school choice, et al. When Laura asked Dr. King about appearances with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, she politely and respectfully mentioned the disagreements they've had. She spoke of asking Jesse Jackson why he'd changed his position on abortion. She said her father would be strongly pro-life if he were alive today. According to Dr. King, Martin Luther King often spoke of chastity, abstinence...
