Comedian and civil rights activist Dick Gregory died August 19, 2017, and although he is best known for his humor, the satirist once called out government-funded abortion and birth control as a genocide effort targeting the Black community.

Gregory was the father of eleven children but tragically, one of his children died as an infant. He often used his humor to touch on the social ills of the day, and as a result, many white people attended his comedy events. He became a strong voice in the Black community during the tumultuous times of the 1960’s and 70’s during the African American civil rights struggle.

In 1967, Gregory joined more than 1,100 Black delegates for the First National Conference on Black Power where he along with others in the group adopted a black power manifesto that called for the “refusal to accept birth control programs on the basis that they seek to exterminate Negroes,” among other demands, according to a July 24, 1967, New York Times report obtained by Live Action News.

In the Journal of Social History, researcher Simone M. Caron described the view just after that conference saying, “The following year, the Third Annual National Conference on Black Power in Philadelphia called on all blacks to ‘resist the increasing genocidal tendencies of American society.’ Resistance ranged from a small California group called Efforts to Increase Our Size (EROS) to groups in Pittsburgh and Cleveland that protested Planned Parenthood programs to the ultramilitant group in New York known as the Five Percenters. These organizations asked two main questions: ‘Is birth control just a “white man’s plot” to “contain” the black population?’ and ‘Is it just another scheme to cut back on welfare aid or still another method of “keeping the black man down”?’ An editorial in The Thrust questioned why blacks could not get a free aspirin for a headache ‘yet when you’re a Black woman old enough to look sexy you can get a truck loaded down with control pills free. . . . The whole plot makes Hitler look like a Boy Scout.’”

The following year (1968) Gregory ran for president of the United States on the “peace and freedom” ticket calling the two-party system “corrupt and immoral.”

Dick Gregory Ebony Magazine: Abortion is Genocide

Dick Gregory Ebony Magazine Abortion is Genocide

Then, in 1971, Gregory penned a controversial Op-ed piece entitled, My Answer to Genocide, which was published in Ebony Magazine.

Gregory, like many other Black leaders of his day, believed that large families were important to the Black power struggle of their time. And, the civil rights activist perceived that the government might be attempting to limit the Black population through their funding of abortion and birth control.

This idea that abortion and birth control were plots to exterminate African Americans was not new.

In fact, there were many prominent African American leaders, including Jesse Jackson, Samuel Yette, Fannie Lou Hamer, Whitney Young and more who were suspicious of government programs that pushed “family planning”, especially those that were placed within Black communities.

That suspicion appears to have had merit.

Research shows that family planning centers and abortion facilities often set up their locations in or near minority communities. In addition, the largest provider of abortions, Planned Parenthood, was founded by a radical advocate of racist eugenics who spoke with the Klu Klux Klan. And, Planned Parenthood’s ties to eugenics go well beyond their founder Margaret Sanger, as Live Action has reported previously.

Today, with Planned Parenthood receiving half a billion in government dollars every year to promote their agenda, not only is the abortion corporation’s market share of abortions increasing, but nationally Black abortions are at frighteningly high levels as well.

In the Ebony article, Gregory begins by criticizing “planned parenthood groups” that call for people to only have 2.5 children.

He dismissed the terminology that claimed a preborn person was merely a fraction of a human to the way Blacks were described during slavery as “three-fifths” human:

My answer to genocide, quite simply is eight Black kids – and a another baby on the way […]

Now planned parenthood groups are saying that a couple should have a maximum of 2 1/2 children. I’m still trying to figure out that half a kid. I know my American history well enough to know what ‘three-fifths’ of a man is, but half-a-kid?

 

Dick Gregory Ebony Magazine Abortion Genocide article

Gregory, who was born into a poor family, denounces birth control as something that “goes against Nature,” writing:

Can you believe that human beings are the only creatures who would ever consider developing birth control pills? You mention contraception to a gorilla and he will tear your head off.

Although Gregory’s humor is weaved throughout his piece, he is clear about the seriousness of genocide or as he also called it “subtle forms of genocide.” He said:

Genocide has come to mean, acts committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial, or religious group as such; by killing members of the group […] imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group […]

Like many Black leaders today, Gregory pointed to a host of ills facing the Black community including police brutality, segregation, the KKK, poverty, and war. But of genocidal measures to “prevent births” within a group, Gregory wrote in Ebony:

There is ample evidence that government programs designed for poor black folks emphasize birth control and abortion availability, both measures obviously designed to limit black population.

In November of 1971, following the birth of Gregory’s ninth child, Jet Magazine pointed again to the civil rights leaders opposition to planned parenthood groups:

Dick Gregory opposed planned parenthood. Jet Magazine November 1971

At the time, Gregory’s colleague Jesse Jackson shared his views and decried abortion.

In 1971, during public hearings of the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future, the Rev. Jesse Jackson warned that, “Birth Control as a National policy will simply marshal sophisticated methods to remove ( and control when not remove) the weak, the poor – quite likely the black and other minorities whose relative increase in population threatens the white caste in this nation. Contraceptives, will become a form of drug warfare against the helpless in this nation[…]”

(Source: Statements at public hearings of the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future as quoted in: Genocide? Birth Control and the Black American by Robert G. Weisbord, Greenwoor Press, 1972; P. 165)

In 1973, Jesse Jackson stated, “Abortion is genocide,in a Jet Magazine interview.

In that Jet Magazine, Mar 22, 1973, article Jackson added:

“Anything growing is living…If you got the thrill to set the baby in motion and you don’t have the will to protect it, you’re dishonest…You try to avoid reproducing sickness. You try to avoid reproducing deformities. But you don’t try to stop reproducing and procreating human life at its best. For who knows the cure for cancer won’t come out of some mind of some Black child?”

In 1975, at an event sponsored by the National Youth Pro-Life Coalition, Gregory joined Jackson in speaking against abortion.

The Winnipeg Free Press described the group as, “a non-sectarian, non-partisan group working for ‘positive alternatives’ to abortion, war, capital punishment, euthanasia, compulsory sterilization and ‘other forms of violence.’”

In 1975, at an event sponsored by the National Youth Pro-Life Coalition, Gregory joined Jackson in speaking against abortion.

The Winnipeg Free Press described the group as, “a non-sectarian, non-partisan group working for ‘positive alternatives’ to abortion, war, capital punishment, euthanasia, compulsory sterilization and ‘other forms of violence.’”

According to the media outlet, the Black activists told the group that, “that the nation’s pro-abortion mentality undermines the value and dignity of every human life and that ‘killing babies’ is symptomatic of a civilization
and culture which operates without sacred absolutes.”

Upon news of Gregory’s death, CNN described his first-hand experience with injustice:

In a 1963 protest in which Gregory participated in Birmingham, Alabama, he was arrested and beaten by the police for championing the right of blacks to vote. After that incident, Gregory wrote, ‘It was just body pain, though. The Negro has a callus growing on his soul, and it’s getting harder and harder to hurt him there.’

Like a majority of dishonest media which support abortion, CNN failed to mention Gregory’s opposition to the horrific taking of human life in the womb.

But, stats do not lie, and sadly, reported abortion numbers in the Black and minority communities ring of a certain confirmation about the concerns Gregory and Jackson had.

As a result, the numbers of abortions performed on minorities and specifically Black women remain disproportionately high. As Live Action News has previously documented, in 2011, the CDC revealed that almost 56% of all abortions reported for race were committed on minority women.

 

The CDC’s 2012 report (dated November 27, 2015) reveals that 55% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity were performed on Black or Hispanic women.

The latest numbers for 2013 (published in 2016) show those numbers remained relatively the same (54.6%).

While Dick Gregory is rightly remembered for his many accomplishments, it is doubtful the news media will discuss how his suspicions about birth control and abortion proved to be true.

After all, if government-funded abortion and birth control are, in fact, genocide against Black community, then why does the media remain supportive of forced taxpayer dollars to such agendas?

And, more importantly, why does Congress continue to fund Planned Parenthood?

“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.

Dr. Ben Carson Jake Tapper

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.

(H/T TruthRevolt) )

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.

GuestClenard Childress Black abortion NAACP COnfederate Flag

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.

Alveda King on Charleston Church Shooting: We have lawlessness for lack of appreciation for life

MLK niece Alveda King addressed the Charleston, South Carolina church shooting this weekend at a march against abortion in Selma, Alabama whose message was Black Women Matter.

Black leaders from across the nation attended the March in Selma to expose a possible racial motive for not enforcing abortion laws.

According to organizer, Catherine Davis, over 300 people attended the event on Juneteenth 2015.

Davis is the founding member of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition and president of The Restoration Project.

Also in attendance was Charmaine Yoest resident & CEO of Americans United for Life (AUL), who posted this statement on Facebook, “What a morning. Marching across the famous Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma with my friends Catherine Davis, Alveda King and Star Parker. We went to Selma to say ‪#‎blackwomenmatter‬. To call on state officials across the country to enforce the laws against illegal abortion clinics.”

1795769_10155731318790788_673796857031796382_n

The Black leaders and all those who attended were calling for the laws that regulate abortion and abortion clinics in the state to be enforced.

10986181_10206946483850921_8223629718987413117_o

They claim that the reason enforcement may not be happening is because the women going to certain abortion facilities are Black or Brown minority.

“We’re hoping to call attention to the fact that the states are turning a blind eye to abortionists that are breaking the laws of the state,” Davis said.

Catherine Davis speaks to media Selma March

Davis pointed to Dr. Samuel Lett of the Central Alabama Women’s Clinic which she says is performing enough abortions to require his clinic to come under state licensure.

She told Life Dynamics that after a pro-life group filed a complaint against the Selma abortion facility, the state refused to to enforce the law.

Why aren’t they enforcing these laws?” Davis said she asked herself.

“And the only common denominator I could see is that the majority of women going into those abortion clinics are black or brown,” she said.

According to a report in the Selma Times Journal:

    Leaders of The Selma Project said they have evidence that the Central Alabama Women’s Clinic, which is operated by Dr. Samuel Lett, performs more than nine abortions each month, which would require it to fall under state regulations as an abortion clinic.

    An Alabama Department of Public Health investigation into the clinic failed to find evidence of wrongdoing, but protesters are demanding a more thorough look.

Protesters at the march said that the Alabama Department of Public Health needs to take a deeper look at the possible illegal activities going.

“We don’t believe the Alabama Department of Public Health actually did an investigation,” said Davis.

In my mind, if they had simply sat in front of his clinic when the complaint was first filed they could’ve seen for their own eyes women going in pregnant and coming out not,” she told the paper.

GOod 285_6491677769260258043_o

“They would schedule as many abortions as we made,” Father Terry Gensemer, national director of Charismatic Episcopal Church for Life said. “Their familiarity with just talking about abortion with the way they schedule them … that language is just too familiar.”

11390029_10206946477450761_5178284202396936722_n

Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., attended the march and spoke to the crowd, “If anyone wants to know why we are here today, it’s because black women matter, black lives matter, black babies matter, all lives matter to God,” King said at a short press conference after protesters finished their march.

King spoke about peace to the media from the rally following the horrific shooting of nine Black church members in Charleston, South Carolina.

If we think about what happened in Charleston. If we think about why we are marching today, saying, Black Women Matter. We forgive Dr. Lett of all the harmful practices an abortion clinic for instance, but, that doesn’t mean that they don’t have to stop,” King said.

Star Parker Alveda King 86535689445_n

Alveda King added, “We have lawlessness right now. And I say again for lack of appreciation for life from conception from the instant a person is conceived until natural death. That is my work at Priests for Life. That is my work as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That is my work as a human being to first love others and then be loved.”

Black “Christian’s” rant claims she’s never shed tears for Black babies killed by abortion

Posted in Black Lives Matter, Black Women, Church pro-abortion with tags , , , , , , on June 11, 2015 by saynsumthn

Nikki Brooks, a Black woman who claims to be a Christian and to have held leadership rolls in several churches, has published an astonishing video stating she has no sympathy for the unborn black baby targeted for abortion.

Nikki Brooks

“What I am about to say, I am a Christian, I’ve served in a Pastoral capacity in three churches, I uh, I am an active minister, and um, I don’t make apology for what I am about to say,” Brooks states in her vid.

She is apparently upset that the Black community, which is being targeted for abortion by racist eugenics groups like Planned Parenthood, is also being criticized because they are not speaking out for the unborn in many Black Lives Matters protests.

Nikki Brooks FB

I have never, not one time ever, shed a tear for another woman’s unborn child that she chose to abort. I never have,” Brooks states emphatically.

Aborted Baby

“I don’t have a conviction about it. I uh believe that life is important to God but I also know that’s why he’s God and I’m not.’

She goes on to state: “I have however shed meany tears for the three I chose to lay up and have.”

Here is what she cries over:

    Being in a classroom with one teacher and 28 students and only a few knew how to read.

    Her Junior High students whose only meals come from the school.

    Children deserving of probation who got prison.

Nikki Brooks YouTube

Nikki Brooks calls the Black Lives Matters abortion connection a bogus argument saying she won’t be boxed in to anyone telling her she cannot advocate for one thing if she doesn’t advocate for another.

“I have never cried over a woman’s unborn fetus…I believe that the lives that are here right now and the quality of those lives, that’s what matters,” she says again.

Of course, in Matthew 25:31-46, Jesus himself told us to care for the “least of these,” which of course includes the poor and downtrodden but does NOT exclude the unborn child.

In fact in Proverbs 24:11 commands us to, “Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter.”

The Psalmist pays tribute to the personhood of the unborn child in the womb, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”

So, why would Nikki Brooks say that Black people especially professing Christian Black people, should have no concern for abortion?

Your guess is a good as mine.

Watch her rant below:

According to an online group, 4.4 million Blacks have been killed by abortion over the 22 years between 1990 and 2011.

A report just released by the Center for Disease Control dated November 28, 2014 reveals that in 2011 almost 56% of all abortions reported for race were done on minority women.

The history of legal abortion is based in eugenics racism.

Anyone who thinks otherwise should watch the powerful documentary film, Maafa21 Black Genocide in 21st Century America.

MLK niece: Planned Parenthood a “well planned killing machine”

Posted in Alveda King, Black Babies, Black Conservative, Black Genocide, Black Lives Matter, Black Women, Planned Parenthood and Black Women with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 11, 2015 by saynsumthn

REPUBLISHED FROM LIFE DYNAMICS BLOG

Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., has recently called abortion giant Planned Parenthood a “killing machine” in front of a California city counsel.

In May, King was invited by the Imperial Valley Coalition for Life to address the El Centro City Council about a new Planned Parenthood facility in the area which is seeking to perform abortions.

The Planned Parenthood clinic is located near the Mexico border where 80 percent of residents are Hispanic.

Alveda King at El Centro meeting

King is outspoken about the way that Planned Parenthood targets the Black community and she now feels they have their sights set on other minorities.

There is a disconnect in the community that must be addressed in prayer,” King stated .

“Many people know that Planned Parenthood is after money offering abortions and harmful byproducts and in that process they target the most vulnerable, American women and families, Latinos and African Americans. Now, they are after the women of Mexicali and their babies because they are easy prey to their lies that they offer “safe, legal and rare abortions.

“Women don’t need death care we need help,” King told the Council.

racialtargeting

A report published by the pro-life group, Life Dynamics, details the way Planned Parenthood sets up their centers in minority communities.

When a state has multiple population control facilities in zip codes with minority populations that exceed 125% of the state’s overall minority population common sense says that racial targeting in the plausible explanation,” Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher writes in the Racial Profiling Report.

According to the lasted abortion states published by the CDC and dated November 28, 2014, in 2011 almost 56% of all abortions reported for race were done on minority women.

Maafa21 Banner

King, who was featured in Crutcher’s documentary Maafa21 , which detailed the eugenics agenda of Planned Parenthood, called the abortion giant a killing place.

“Here in El Centro, there’s a new sports pavilion and a proposed Planned Parenthood facility. The MLK sports pavilion offers help for the youth of the community while the Planned Parenthood facility offers death…It’s time to pray that Planned Parenthood doesn’t move in with it’s well planned killing machine, ” she said.

“True civil rights begin at conception in the womb and should end with natural death,” MLK’s niece reiterated, “So, I ask you where are the civil rights for the baby?

Watch King address the council at 35:36 in the video below:

After several delays by the city, Planned Parenthood says they have received the necessary paperwork to open on a part time basis.

As of the date this blog is being published, the El Centro Planned Parenthood has not started performing abortions while they await a license from the California Department of Public Health.

#SayHerName Black woman dead after Planned Parenthood abortion now forgotten

Posted in Black Lives Matter, Black Women, Black Women killed from Abortion, Planned Parenthood and Black Women, Planned Parenthood Democrat Party with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2015 by saynsumthn

Well…they did it again.

Those hypocrites over at Planned Parenthood keep – shall we say “stepping in it?”

This time, the abortion giant tweeted to the hashtag #SayHerName which is exposing police violence against Black women.

Planned Parenthood police violence black women

So, in “solidarity” for concern of “Black women” the organization which was founded by a Klan speaking racist (watch Maafa21) tweeted this, “#SayHerName: We stand in #solidarity with the activists elevating police violence against black women.”

Sounds legitimate, right?

WRONG!

One would wonder that, if Planned Parenthood were concerned about the death of Black women why they allowed a 24-year-old Black woman to bleed for 5 hours inside their facility after a botched abortion before calling for emergency care.

Her name was Tonya Reaves.

TonyaReaves

According to the website SafeandLegal.com, after Tonya’s botched abortion took place, she was left to bleed for five and a half hours in the Planned Parenthood clinic without medical treatment. Furthermore, when Ms. Reaves was finally transferred to the hospital, it took several more hours for her to be treated properly, which indicates that Planned Parenthood did not provide the hospital with sufficient information regarding Ms. Reaves’ condition. The autopsy after her death revealed that Ms. Reaves had suffered perforation of the uterus.

tonya-reaves-0722

The care or shall we say lack of care, that Planned Parenthood gave to this Black woman was so egregious that Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation were order to pay Tonya’s family $2,000,000.00 in a wrongful death settlement.

PP LAwsuit Settlemen Tonya Reaves

What is interesting is that Reaves’ death was ruled an accident by the same Medical Examiners Office whose top administrator was appointed by what appears to be an avid pro-abortion Planned Parenthood supporter.

Accident?

Okay – I guess when this Black woman died we should just all accept the decision by those in charge – right?

WRONG!

Enter Toni Preckwinkle

Toni-Preckwinkle-President

A month prior to Tonya’s death, County Board president, Toni Preckwinkle appointed Daryl Jackson to head the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office until a replacement could be found for Dr. Nancy Jones, who was to resign.

According to the Chicago Tribune:

    In June of 2012, After months of evaluating operations and making lower-level changes at the troubled county morgue, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle launched a major shake-up that included the departure of the two top officials at the medical examiner’s office.

    Out was Medical Examiner Nancy Jones, who will retire at the end of July, and Kimberly Jackson, the top administrator in the office. In was Daryl Jackson, a longtime state Public Health Department supervisor that Preckwinkle chose as the new administrator. And a nationwide search was launched to replace Jones.

In 2012, Preckwinkle appointed Jackson to executive director.

Toni Preckwinkle and Planned Parenthood

Curiously, the abortion giant has supported Preckwinkle in her political endeavors.

In April of 2012 Preckwinkle was a special guest at a Planned Parenthood gala.

PreckwinklePP

Cook County Board President was also in attendance at Planned Parenthood’s 2010 Campaign Kickoff !

And, later in 2015 Preckwinkle attended this Planned Parenthood event sponsored by Planned Parenthood Illinois Action (PPIA) to celebrate the 42nd anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion on demand.

Reboot Illinois reported that Preckwinkle is a large donor to Planned Parenthood Illinois Action PAC.

Toni Preckwinkel Planned Parenthood

When Tonya Reaves died after her July 2012 abortion, her autopsy was performed by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office which ruled her death an accident.

Tonya Reaves Medical Examiner

Doesn’t it seem odd that the person in charge of appointments for the County Medical Examiner has been a HUGE Planned Parenthood supporter, participating consistently in their events for years, and when a Black woman’s death looks suspicious, the office she oversees rules it an accident?

But – then again – we are talking about the death of a Black woman and I am sure Planned Parenthood is glad they will no longer have to #SayHerName.

Medical Examiner Hid Info Showing Planned Parenthood Killed Patient

tonyareaves5autopsy

Operation Rescue, who requested a copy of the autopsy on Ms. Reaves, indicates that it was not provided the complete autopsy report — indicating six pages were omitted that place the blame squarely on Planned Parenthood’s shoulders. The copy the pro-life group received from the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office was missing the six important pages that further detailed Reaves fatal abortion injuries and noted that Planned Parenthood was where her abortion took place.

The sanitized copy sent to Operation Rescue contained no mention of Planned Parenthood. The omission was discovered when attorneys for the Thomas More Society, a pro-life legal group that also had filed an open records request for the report, compared notes with Operation Rescue.

At the time Ms. Reaves death became public, the pro-life group, Life Dynamics asked officials in Cook County to investigate Tonya’s death as “depraved indifference murder,” which they refused to do.

Coincidence?

Maybe not…

As an additional point of interest, the Cook County Medical Examiner now employees the former President of the Board of Directors for Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Kimberly Foxx, who, according to her LinkedIn page, worked for the Cook County State’s Attorney Office during the time pro-lifers were calling for an investigation of Planned Parenthood.

In addition, Cook County Prosecutor Anita Alvarez has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood PAC according to this voting guide.

Foxx is now looking to replace Cook County Prosecutor Anita Alvarez.

MORE POLITICAL POWER SUPPORTING PLANNED PARENTHOOD:

LISA MADIGAN is the Attorney General of Illinois. According to the Chicago Tribune, Lisa Madigan became the first woman to serve as Illinois Attorney General when she was elected on Nov. 5, 2002.

In 2009, Madigan joined with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), representing the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and others in a federal lawsuit.

Madigan answered a questionnaire on the positions she supported this way:

    I am pro-choice, and my voting as State Senator record backs this up. While I was in the Illinois Senate, I supported a woman’s right to choose as recognized by Roe v. Wade. I had a 100% pro-choice voting record, including supporting legislation to provide public funding of abortion services for low-income women.

    In the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the parental notification law, it was my responsibility under the constitution to represent the defendants. When my office’s legal research showed that the law was constitutional, based on the fact that federal courts around the country have upheld parental notice laws, including laws that are more stringent than Illinois’, my office defended the law. In 2013, the Illinois Supreme Court upheld the law under the Illinois Constitution.

    In addition, working with Planned Parenthood, I have supported legislation to amend Illinois’ parental notice law.

    I am pro-choice, and my voting as State Senator record backs this up. While I was in the Illinois Senate, I supported a woman’s right to choose as recognized by Roe v. Wade. I had a 100% pro-choice voting record, including supporting legislation to provide public funding of abortion services for low-income women.

Barbara Flynn Currie, Scott Drury, Robyn Gable, Greg Harris, Camille Lilly, Sara Feigenholtz, Dan Williams and Dick Durbin and other notables attended Planned Parenthood’s Gala.

Planned Parenthood police violence black women

SO, to tie this all together, as Planned Parenthood expresses faux concern for Black women in their #SayHerName tweet, they have forgotten the name of a Black abortion patient which died at their hands: Tonya Reaves. And, perhaps, just perhaps they avoided a depraved indifference murder investigation because of all their political clout.

Just say’n.
