Another Planned Parenthood opens in a minority neighborhood
February 15, 2010
Planned Parenthood is opening this 40,000 square foot Surgicenter as the new headquarters of Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette in Portland, Oregon , and guess where? Yes- smack in the middle of a minority neighborhood. SURPRISED?
The site of the new headquarters, at Northeast Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard
The grand opening was planned to be in the middle of Black History Month on February 14.
PPCW’s new abortion mill is centrally located in Portland’s predominantly Black neighborhood on a busy street named after Martin Luther King, Jr.
News of Planned Parenthood is disturbing to African-American religious leaders including Rev. Isham Harris, pastor of the Upper Room Home Church located in Northeast Portland. Rev. Harris led a pro-life march through the Black neighborhood one year ago.
Rev. Harris is distressed that Planned Parenthood chose Black History Month to open its abortion mill. “They have a total disregard for Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., for the plight of African-Americans. I feel the same about the Portland Development Commission. I totally abhor this.”
The city’s urban planning arm, the Portland Development Commission, approved the sale of city property to Planned Parenthood.
Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers of Immaculate Heart Church sounded the alarm about Black Genocide at the Portland Right To Life rally in January 2010. “Every week more Blacks die in American abortion clinics that were killed in the entire Vietnam war,” he told the crowd. The Culture of Death “would like us to ignore the fact that African-America women comprise 12% of the population, but have 37% of the abortions. Abortion kills as many African-American people every four days as the Ku Klux Klan killed in 150 years.”

Precious Children of Portland: Are there too Many Black Children in Portland?
By ERRIN HAINES (AP) – 1 day ago
ATLANTA — The message on dozens of billboards across the city is provocative: Black children are an “endangered species.”
The eyebrow-raising ads featuring a young black child are an effort by the anti-abortion movement to use race to rally support within the black community. The reaction from black leaders has been mixed, but the “Too Many Aborted” campaign, which so far is unique to only Georgia, is drawing support from other anti-abortion groups across the country.
“It’s ingenious,” said the Rev. Johnny Hunter, national director of the Life Education and Resource Network, a North Carolina-based anti-abortion group aimed at African-Americans that operates in 27 states. “This campaign is in your face, and nobody can ignore it.”
The billboards went up last week in Atlanta and urge black women to “get outraged.”
The effort is sponsored by Georgia Right to Life, which also is pushing legislation that aims to ban abortions based on race.
Black women accounted for the majority of abortions in Georgia in 2006, even though blacks make up just a third of state population, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Nationally, black women were more than three times as likely to get an abortion in 2006 compared with white women, according to the CDC.
