“You hear a lot of demonstrations across the country now about ‘Black Lives Matter. Well they skipped one place. They should be in front of Planned Parenthood.” ~ Democrat Rep. Bill Patmon, who is African-American.
“It is my business, especially when 17 million of them are black women, 17 million – more than any other population – 17 million that look and act and talk …similar to myself, but even more than that, they’re Americans, and they’re human beings,” Patmon said.

2016 GOP Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson told Jake Tapper on CNN that Planned Parenthood was an organization founded in eugenics that did not protect the sanctity of life.

Carson said that Planned Parenthood is “an organization whose founder believed in eugenics,” a reference to Margaret Sanger, and added, “even today, the plurality of their clinics are in minority communities.”
Asked by Tapper if Planned Parenthood’s were needed in low income ares he responded, “I thought that they were supposed to be able to get all those things based on Obamacare. Why do we need Planned Parenthood?”
This week, Dr. Alveda King called out the Congressional Black Caucus for remaining silent on the Planned Parenthood debate.
“Well, CBC, you cannot serve both Planned Parenthood and your constituents. By serving Planned Parenthood you are not only hating the other or despising the other but your position is helping to kill our people.
“It’s not too late to put your constituents first, where they belong. Get behind; no take the lead in the investigations of Planned Parenthood. Take the lead in calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. It time to stand up for truth,’ the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King said.
King is featured in the powerful film, Maafa21.
She recently told Charisma, “We need to repent for all the innocent blood that has been shed [thru #abortion] ; the babies who have been killed while too many stood by silently as abortionists across America took the babies’ lives; the injured and dying mothers; the broken families. We need to ask God for forgiveness; collectively and individually. We need to ask God to heal our land. We need to pray for America, before it’s too late.”
Also this month, Black leaders protested outside the NAACP conference in Philadelphia decrying the group’s refusal to speak out against abortion which kills a majority of Blacks.
Rev. Clenard Childress, Jr. director of the largest Black pro-life organization the country, LEARN, visited the NAACP convention for days with a team of African Americans holding signs relating to Black Genocide from abortion.
He said that the group’s basic message at the NAACP event was that, “ALL Black Life Matters.”
“It is a gross injustice of the NAACP board and members to ignore the genocide of the African American community and the health ramifications that are resulting from abortions upon African American women,” he said.
“Planned Parenthood pays no taxes. Under President Obama, they’ve made more than $500 million in profits, but they claim to be a “non-profit” organization. They kill more 800 children every day. And they have from the earliest days targeted minority women. They once had a “Negro Ministers” project designed to recruit black pastors to push first birth control and then abortion in minority neighborhoods.” ~ Ken Blackwell, Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment at the Family Research Council, and the Ronald Reagan Distinguished Fellow for Public Policy at the Buckeye Institute in Columbus, Ohio.
“We are dying we’re killing our own people. We came out of slavery, we fought for the civil rights movement but now the greatest civil right, the right to life – we’re not fighting for it,” Christina Marie Bennett.
