Provocative display links shootings of Blacks by police with abortion victims
A National pro-life group is teaming up with African American leaders to introduced a provocative new pro-life sign display entitled, “All Black Lives Matter.”
The signs, created by The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR), display images of abortion victims with various messages directed to the African American community and ask, “where is the African-American community’s outrage over the hundreds of thousands of preborn black children butchered this year by the brutality of abortion?! Why isn’t the civil rights slogan “Don’t shoot” accompanied by the exhortation “Don’t abort”?
According to the group’s press release, the exhibit was inspired by the tragic series of encounters between black suspects and white police officers in which the suspects lost their lives while being taken into custody.
CBR said that they believes the rule of law requires that police officers who employ excessive force should be prosecuted, convicted and punished appropriately, “A young black man who raises his hands, shouting “Don’t shoot!” has a right to be apprehended unharmed,” they said.
CBR also stated that a young black man restrained in a police choke-hold should never die of asphyxiation after declaring, “I can’t breathe.”
“The evidence is often in dispute, but where proven beyond a reasonable doubt, police brutality is an intolerable outrage — especially if racially motivated. But where is the African-American community’s outrage over the hundreds of thousands of preborn black children butchered this year by the brutality of abortion?! Why isn’t the civil rights slogan “Don’t shoot” accompanied by the exhortation “Don’t abort”? When will African-American religious and political leaders acknowledge that aborted babies can’t breathe either? A police choke-hold can be a form of torture, and abortion also tortures babies to death. As Lila Rose recently established in another of her brilliant Live Action videos, the abortion industry lies to mothers about fetal pain,” their release says.
More from the Press Release:
The British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology reports in a review titled, “Fetal Pain: Implications for Research and Practice” (September 1999), that “… It is possible that the fetus can feel pain from 20 weeks and is caused distress from interventions as early as 15 or 16 weeks” (p 885). Brain structures activated by 16 weeks “… could be associated with unpleasant conscious experience” (p 885). Between 13 and 16 weeks is when “… it is likely that the fetus is aware of anything that is going on in its body …” (p 882). At eight weeks, “The fetus starts to make movements in response to being touched …” (p 882). More than 100,000 babies each year are aborted after 13 weeks (about 10% of the 1.1 million annual total). Approximately 17,000 are killed after 21 weeks (about 1.4% of the total).
A large percentage of these babies are African-American and many are dying slow, agonizing deaths. Those who aren’t torn to pieces suffer excruciating heart attacks after being injected with lethal doses of digoxin or potassium chloride, the same poisons being used to stop the hearts of death row inmates (See Boston.com, “Shots Assist in Aborting Fetuses,” August 10, 2007.)
The Orange County Register, January 24, 2015, published a story headlined “Justices to Review Drug for Execution,” which reported that the U.S. Supreme Court is examining the possibility that these drugs are causing inmates “intense” pain. The Los Angeles Times, on the same day, notes that an African-American inmate named Charles Warner recently exclaimed, “My body is on fire,” after receiving this lethal injection.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is rightly dismayed to report (NAACP LDF Report “Death Row U.S.A.,” Summer 2013) that black inmates comprise 42% of death row prisoners. Why, then, do they strongly support the slaughter of the far greater numbers of African-American preborn children being executed with the same lethal injections?
NAACP leader Julian Bond recently equated abortion rights with racially-related civil rights (“NAACP Leader: Right to Abort is Same as Right to Eat at Lunch Counter,” LifeNews.com, August 6, 2014). The NAACP is so intellectually dishonest concerning black genocide that its board refuses to permit any debate on any proposed resolution related to abortion and won’t even allow the public reading of such proposals.
CBR said they are teaming up with the Rev. Clenard Childress a black minister who is a member of their board and will be holding a press conference in Washington D.C to unveil the new display. Rev. Childress is founder of BlackGenocide.Org. Several other African-American pastors and pro-life activists will also present brief remarks.
“As these abortion photos prove incontestably, abortion is an act of violence which kills a baby, and abortion is teaching an entire generation of young African-Americans to solve its problems by resorting to violence,” they said.
In addition, the group points out that the targeting of the African American community by Planned Parenthood’s “abortion care” has suppressed the black vote more effectively than poll taxes, literacy tests, voter I.D. requirements and Ku Klux Klan lynchings combined.
“Abortion suppresses the Black Vote.”
“These new signs are intended to stop this fratricidal atrocity,” says CBR, “CBR will collaborate with African-American anti-abortion leaders across the country to display them at middle schools, high schools, universities and churches with substantial black enrollment. Our African-American president has betrayed us. It is long past time for us to take matters into our own hands with an unavoidable witness against this great evil,” they said.
