These 15 women prove that being Black and pro-life is neither ‘rare’ nor ‘ignorant’

Michael Harriot, commentator for The Root,recently claimed that being a Black pro-life woman and seeking the protection of innocent Black babies in the womb is “rare.” But is it?

Harriott was writing in response to an interaction between Rep. Steve Cohen (D – Tenn.) and Star Parker, a pro-life Black woman, in which Cohen called Parker “ignorant” after she pointed out the devastation that abortion has wrought in the Black community.

“Since Roe v. Wade was legalized 20 million humans have been killed inside the womb of Black women. And then, on Halloween, Planned Parenthood tweets out that Black women are safest if they abort their child rather than bring it to term,” Parker said during a hearing on the Heartbeat Bill.

Parker also exposed the eugenic beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, a known eugenicist who once gave a speech before the Ku Klux Klan. She also compared the Dred Scott decision, in which the U.S. Supreme Court declared that Black slaves in America were not citizens, to that of Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the entire country (essentially declaring that preborn humans are not persons and have no standing as such under the law).

Watch the interaction below:

Shockingly, Michael Harriot, who is also Black, chose to criticize Parker for her comments rather than research her claims about Planned Parenthood’s eugenicist beginnings. Instead, Harriot discounted Parker and other Black pro-life women, claiming that they are “rare”:

Star Parker, founder of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education and a community activist, was asked to testify before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.

Hold up, I think I made a mistake in that previous paragraph. What I meant to type was: Star Parker was asked to testify before the House subcommittee because she is one of the rare black female Republican anti-abortion-rights activists. (No, I will not use the GOP marketing phrase “pro-life.” Who’s not for people living?)

Harriot then echoed Rep. Cohen’s derogatory remarks, saying, “People were shocked to hear him go after a black woman publicly like this, but here is the thing: She is kinda ignorant, though.” (Side note: Imagine for one moment what would happen if Parker were pro-choice and… oh, I don’t know… a white Republican male had called her “ignorant.” Media and social media — and likely Harriot himself — would explode with outrage.)

But Harriot’s claim about the rarity of pro-life Black females is simply wrong. The following Black pro-life women (in both the past and the present) are worth noting (and they weren’t all Republicans, Mr. Harriot):

1) Dr. Mildred Jefferson was the first Black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School and was co-founder of the National Right to Life Committee. She once stated:

I became a physician in order to help save lives. I am at once a physician, a citizen, and a woman, and I am not willing to stand aside and allow the concept of expendable human lives to turn this great land of ours into just another exclusive reservation where only the perfect, the privileged, and the planned have the right to live.

2) Fannie Lou Hamer was a civil rights activist who helped found the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. In 1964 she ran for Congress. Hamer was also a victim of eugenic sterilization, a program which Planned Parenthood’s founder (as well as those on her board) advocated.

Ethyl Payne quoted Hamer as calling abortion “black genocide,” writing in The Afro-American, “She was a delegate to the White House Conference on Food and Nutrition… there she spoke out strongly of abortion as a means  of genocide of blacks….”

Journalist Samuel Yette also noted Mrs. Hamer’s views in The Afro American – Apr 2, 1977, quoting her as saying, “It is still a society in which an injured man must show his ability to pay before getting hospital services, but his daughter or wife can be aborted or fed birth control pills, at public expense….” Yette then recounted how Hamer blasted conference organizers: “She responded with shock and outrage at the deception. “I didn’t come to talk about birth control,” she protested. “I came here to get some food to feed poor, hungry people. Where are they carrying on that kind of talk?”

A 1969 article published by the Free-Lance Star quotes Hamer as denouncing voluntary abortion as “legalized murder,” saying she “made it clear that she “regards it part of a comprehensive white man’s plot to exterminate the black population of the United States.”

Author Kay Mills quoted Hamer in her book as being vehemently against abortion. “Once Black women were bought as slaves because they were good breeders,” Hamer said. “Now they talk about birth control and abortion for blacks. If they’d been talking that way when my mother was bearing children, I wouldn’t be here now.”

Elaine Riddick

3) Elaine Riddick is a staunch pro-life advocate and vocal critic of Planned Parenthood. She was a victim of eugenic sterilization who led a successful crusade in North Carolina to gain reparations for the men and women (mostly Black) who were forcefully sterilized.

That NC eugenics program was supported by Margaret Sanger’s financier, Clarence Gamble, a director of Sanger’s American Birth Control League (which later changed its name to Planned Parenthood).

In 1947, Gamble called for the expansion of North Carolina’s state sterilization program, saying that for every feeble minded person sterilized, 40 more were polluting and degrading the bloodlines of future generation with their defective genes.

Research from North Carolina’s Winston-Salem Journal reveals a long history of abuses in that state’s sterilization program — abuses that Gamble consistently glossed over. According to the Journal, “Gamble wanted sterilizations to increase rather than decrease, and increase they did.”

Riddick testified before the North Carolina State Legislature about her experience, tearfully saying, “They cut me open like I was a hog.” She told lawmakers that her only crime was being poor, Black, and from a bad home environment. Riddick’s horrific story was recounted in the documentary Maafa21, which chronicles the history of eugenics and the founding of Planned Parenthood:

4) Dr. Alveda King is the niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., and Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life:

5) LaVern Tolbert is a former Board member of Planned Parenthood who now opposes their agenda:

7) Day Gardner is president of the National Black Pro-Life Union:

8) Judge Cheryl Allen is a Superior Court judge for the state of Pennsylvania. She has said, “Most people tend to believe that Planned Parenthood is in the African American Community to help, but they are not there to help, they are there to make abortion more accessible to black people….” (Source: Interview on His Place TV)

Judge Cheryl Lynn Allen

9) Rep. Mia Love is the first Black Republican female elected to the U.S. Congress from the state of Utah:

10)Barbara Howard is the Florida State chairwoman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE). She has stated,.  “Recently, some black preachers finally came out not against abortion per se, but merely against the location of Planned Parenthood centers in black communities. It seems the murder of blacks is only a consideration for black preachers or other leaders when they are killed by white or Hispanic cops…. So who will stop the cold-blooded murder of millions of unborn black children?”

Barbara Howard

11) Rep. June Franklin (D-Iowa) is the only African American representative in the Iowa legislature, and said in 1971, “Proponents… have argued this bill is for blacks and the poor who want abortions and can’t afford one. This is the phoniest and most preposterous argument of all. Because I represent the inner-city where the majority of blacks and poor live and I challenge anyone here to show me a waiting line of either blacks or poor whites who are wanting an abortion.”

12) Dr Ashley Harrell of Black People Against Abortion:

13) Catherine Davis is a founding member of the National Black Prolife Coalition:

14) Dr. Freda M. Bush is an OBGYN and president of the Medical Institute for Sexual Health:

15) Obianuju Ekeocha, founder and president of Culture of Life Africa:

All the Black pro-life women from both political parties would make an exceedingly long list — and the truth is that the pro-abortion media makes little effort to highlight them.

Tragically, the real “ignorance” here is not found in those who denounce abortion’s impact on the Black community. It is found among members of the media who imply that Black pro-life women are “rare.” It just simply is not true.

Black woman: Planned Parenthood has never denounced Negro Project

Black eugenics victim endorses pro-life Ted Cruz

Posted in Black Conservative, Elaine Riddick, Ted Cruz with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 15, 2016 by saynsumthn

An African American woman who was the victim of eugenic sterilization has endorsed Senator Ted Cruz for president. Elaine Riddick, who was sterilized by the State of North Carolina without her knowledge or consent after she was raped and delivered her son as a teen told Live Action News that she is endorsing Senator Ted Cruz because he values life.

ElaineRiddick

Riddick, whose forcible sterilization was ordered by the Eugenics Board of North Carolina, is very outspoken on Planned Parenthood’s eugenic agenda. The organization was founded by Margaret Sanger, who pushed eugenic ideology.

“Euphemisms and sterilization target code words, for example, “feebleminded”, were used to describe Black women like me,” Riddick wrote in an Op-Ed.

    “I was forcibly sterilized at the age of 14 years under North Carolina’s inhumane forced sterilization policy. A policy that was derived from Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood population control handbook, which spread across the United States by her loyal band of eugenicists and lobbying our elected officials.”

This is Riddick’s story excerpted from the film: Maafa21:

Shortly after this interview Elaine Riddick testified before the North Carolina State Legislature in a successful effort to receive compensation for the sterilization. “They cut me open like I was a hog,” Elaine Riddick testified tearfully. Riddick told the lawmakers that her only crime was being poor, BLACK, and from a bad home environment.

North Carolina was not the only state whose eugenics programs were influenced by friends of Sanger or Planned Parenthood. In some parts of the country, Planned Parenthood was closely associated with these state eugenics boards and was often a referral agency for them.

Riddick told Live Action News that any politician who supports abortion and Planned Parenthood would never get her support. This is why she has been an outspoken advocate of Ted Cruz rather than Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

    “I think that Ted Cruz is good because he is young and knows the suffering of people. He is about life, he is pro-life. Black people’s chances of survival with Ted Cruz is maybe 98%. But with Hillary it is about 5% because of the abortions she supports.”

Elaine Riddick speaks about eugenics at pro-life rally

Elaine Riddick speaks about eugenics at pro-life rally

Riddick is referring to the high rate of abortion within the African American community. As a victim of eugenics herself, Riddick is convinced that the Black community had been targeted with population control specifically abortion. And the data backs up those suspicions. Research shows that family planning centers and abortion facilities often set up their locations in or near minority communities. In 2011, stats published by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) revealed that almost 56% of all abortions reported for race were done on minority women. According to the latest report dated November 27, 2015, in 2012, over 55% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity were performed on Black or Hispanic women. According to those stats, Black women had the highest abortion rate (27.8 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and accounted for 36.7% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity.

“Planned Parenthood’s fundamental strategy for Population Control of Black and low income women was forced sterilizations and abortions,” Riddick points out. She said that in essence “Black people are dammed if you do and dammed if you don’t” in this country. For Riddick, Blacks are either a target on the streets or a target in the womb and she believes that a person who values life in the womb, will value all life.

    “In order to come out of that dilemma it is Ted Cruz all the way.”

Riddick is very critical of the Democrat Presidential Candidates as well most notably Hillary Clinton whom she says once praised Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood:

    “Margaret Sanger persistently dehumanized Blacks, low-income children, the disabled, mentally ill, immigrants, and impoverished women, by classifying them as “human weeds”, “spawning… human beings who never should have been born”.”

When asked about GOP Presidential contender Donald Trump, Riddick was slightly hostile:

    “Are you kidding me? He supports Planned Parenthood – bottom line. He supports taking and killing of Black lives. Anybody that supports Planned Parenthood, then, it’s not about human life. Donald Trump is definitely not pro-life. He said he’s a pro-lifer- he’s a liar. He’s not a pro-lifer if he supports Planned Parenthood.”

“Same thing with Hillary Clinton. She is lynching us in the womb,” she added.

Sen. Ted Cruz

Sen. Ted Cruz

As a Black woman, Riddick sees no other option beside Cruz, whom she said she loves because of his stand for life:

    “I love Cruz because he stands for life- number one. Anybody that stands for life deserves to have the chance. He will be a protector of all lives. He is the most awesome Christian. When you stand for life you have a heart. The other people they are gutless and will slip on a dime. Talk about betrayal – they will betray you.”

Black pastor equates funding of Planned Parenthood to giving tax money to Klan

Posted in Black Conservative, Black Pastor with tags , , , , , , , on August 23, 2015 by saynsumthn

The Rev. Walter Hoye founder of Issues for Life has uploaded a short defund Planned Parenthood primer video.

Rev. Hoye is well known for being unjustly jailed for his peaceful defense of the unborn on a sidewalk outside an abortion clinic in Oakland, California for simply attempting to offer help to women seeking abortion is an outspoken opponent of Planned Parenthood.

He has worked tirelessly to warn the African American Community about Planned Parenthood’s racist and eugenics agenda.

Rev. Walter Hoye

In his video, Rev. Hoye points out the staggering numbers of federal tax dollars funneled into the abortion behemoth, “We’re talking half a billion dollars,” the reverend states.

“79% of it’s surgical abortion facilities located within walking distance of minority neighborhoods,” he adds.

Rev, Hoye then addresses the myth that tax dollars that fund Planned Parenthood will never go for abortions stating, “Because Planned Parenthood promises not to spend the money on abortion is equivalent to giving the Klu Klux Klan, white supremacists, tax payer dollars to buy rope because the Klan promises not to use the rope to lynch Negroes.”
