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?

Ben Carson suggests Planned Parenthood targets blacks for abortion asks do unborn Black Lives Matter?

Posted in 2016 Presidential Race, Ben Carson, Black Conservative, Black leaders on abortion, Black Neighborhood, Black Population Demographics with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2015 by saynsumthn

Last week, Dr. Ben Carson was on several Fox shows talking about the eugenics and racist links to Planned Parenthood.

This is something I documented in my research for the highly acclaimed documentary, Maafa21.

On Wednesday’s Neil Cavuto show, the 2016 African American presidential candidate emphasized Planned Parenthood’s racist beginnings.

Ben Carson Planned Parenthood Cavuto

Maybe I’m not objective when it comes to Planned Parenthood but I know who Margaret Sanger is and know that she believed in eugenics and she was not completely enamored with Black People,” Carson said.

That is putting it lightly.

Sanger KKK

Sanger admitted to giving Klan speeches and bragged in her autobiography that the Klan loved her views so much they extended her a dozen additional invitations to speak.

Carson also addressed the motivation behind Planned Parenthood locating many of their clinics in minority communities.

Carson suggested the public go back and read about Margaret Sanger whose goal was to control the black population, he said.

Adding, “A woman who Hillary Clinton said by the way that she admires.”

Carson is correct, as Saynsumthn Blog documents well, in 2009, Hillary Clinton received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award.

The announcement posted to the US Secretary of State website read, “Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) will present its highest honor, the PPFA Margaret Sanger Award, to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton at the PPFA awards gala in Houston, Texas on Friday, March 27. Secretary Clinton will receive this award for her unwavering support of women’s health and rights throughout her public service career. Actor America Ferrera will co-host the event with PPFA President Cecile Richards. The awards gala will take place at the George R. Brown Convention Center on 1001 Avenida de las Americas in Houston.”

Thursday, sitting in for Bill O’Reilly, Eric Bolling asked Dr. Ben Carson if he stood behind his previous statements about Planned Parenthood.

“Absolutely, no question about it,” Carson responded.

“Anybody can easily find out about Margaret Sanger and what kind of person she was. And how she was a strong advocate of eugenics, wrote articles about eugenics,” Carson replied.

Carson emphasized that the Planned Parenthood founder, “was not enamored with Black people” and “believed that certain members of the population weakened the Black population.”

“And it was quite true that the majority or plurality of their clinics are in Black neighborhoods.”

Pointing to stats that show a high rate of abortion among Black women, Bolling asked Dr. Carson if he thought the goal of Planned Parenthood was to control the Black community.

“It brings up a very important issue,” Carson said, “that is, do those Black Lives Matter?” he asked.

You know, the number one cause of death for Black people is abortion,” the doctor noted.

And I wonder if some people might at some point become concerned about that and ask why is that happening and what can be done to alleviate that situation,” he said.

Asked what Dr. Carson would do about Planned Parenthood he said, “One of the ways they are able to perpetrate the deceit is because people are not informed. The more people are ignored the less likely these things happen.”

Bolling briefly asked Dr. Carson if he ever worked on “fetal tissue” something the doctor denies working with or retrieving.

The question comes on the heels of horrific videos from the Center of Medical Progress exposing Planned Parenthood’s grisly baby parts harvesting operation.

A message from CounterCulturedUS

Eric Gardner’s life matters.
Sandra Bland’s life mattered!
The 1867 black babies we abort everyday in the United States lives matter.
If Black lives truly mattered – defund Planned Parenthood!

Black Lives Matter defund Planned Parenthood

My birth mother could not take care of me
because she lived a life that was consumed with drugs and alcohol.
And could not produce and environment that would be healthy to raise a child.
She could have easily aborted me.
Instead, she chose life, she chose adoption.
And I was raised by two loving parents.

Adoption choice Planned Parenthood black lives


Planned Parenthood tells African American Communities
that it is acceptable to abort their baby instead of presenting adoption as a choice.
They do not believe that Black Lives Matter
I call upon the defunding of Planned Parenthood.

Christian man dating Planned Parenthood worker asks what abortion has to do with him

Posted in Black Neighborhood, Church pro-abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2015 by saynsumthn

A man outside a San Diego Planned Parenthood who said his girlfriend worked at the abortion facility was confronted because he claimed to be a Christian.

AHA PP San Diego 048692_442590003_o

He tells an activist from Abolish Human Abortion (AHA) that he works for a Christian organization called, “Uplift, for intercity youth and children…for Urban people living in faith and trust.

He even gives him a business card.

Mans GF PP Uplift

When told by AHA activist, Todd Bullis that Planned Parenthood rips the arms and legs off unborn babies and crushes their skulls he responded by asking, “What does that have to do with me?

Bullis asked the Christian man if he believed he was his brother’s keeper.

Mans GF PP

Okay, but let me ask you one question,” the man replies.

“If they are doing what you say they’re doing in here-what does that have to do with me?” the man asks Bullis.

You live in a town that sacrifices children. God says you are accountable for what happens in your town, Biblicaly,” said Bullis.

Until I witness something, until I actually see it, I can’t be compelled to do something that I don’t know if it is true or not,” the man replied.

He claims he doesn’t know what his girlfriend does at Planned Parenthood and he thinks all she does is answer the phone.

Bullis points out that she probably makes the abortion appointments.

He asks again,”Going back to what I said – what does that have to do with me?”

One thing that I know, I don’t even know what goes on in abortion clinics. Okay, but hypothetically say you’re right, that’s exactly what goes on in there. The best thing I can do is just pray about it,” the man surmises.

That’s not true,” said Bullis,”You can expose it.”

You do your part, I gotta do my part, I’ve got other things to do,” he says.

Sadly, this “see no evil” attitude is prevalent in many who claim to be Christians.

It’s not rocket science for anyone with a little heart and compassion for innocent children.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion clinic chain in the United States.

What they do is no secret.

In fact, it is written right on the website where the man’s girlfriend works:

Planned Parenthood San Diego

In 2013 Planned Parenthood boasted that they slaughtered 327,653 unborn babies through abortion nationwide.

In 2012-Planned Parenthood reported performing 327,166 abortions.

In 2011, Planned Parenthood reported performing 333,964 abortions.

24weeksenhanced-buzz-6342-1376591562-13

That San Diego Planned Parenthdood abortion clinic kills unborn babies up to 24 weeks. Or as they describe it on their website, “In-clinic abortion is offered up to 23 weeks and 6 days.”

The abortion clinic is operated by Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest.

In 2012, they performed 14,357 abortions and in 2011, 16,309 babies died.

Black Lives Matter display in North Carolina shocks students

REPUBLISHING FROM LIFE DYNAMICS BLOG

Black students in North Carolina learn that abortion is killing their race with a provocative “Black Lives Matter” exhibit at a historical black college.

Johny Hunter Black Lives Matter May 2015 Life Talk

Rev. Johnny Hunter, a past co-host, on Life Talk TV, shared how he and several other African American pro-lifers brought the “Black Lives Matter” project to the campus of Fayetteville State College after participating in a similar event in Washington, D.C.

The project consists of provocative signs created by the Center for Bioethical Reform (CBR), a national pro-life organization.

According to Gregg Cunningham, executive director of CBR, “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.”

The Black Lives Matters slogan took on new life in Ferguson, Missouri and was recently the theme of protesters in Baltimore after another shooting occurred there.

IMG_5498

The Fayetteville exhibit was sponsored by the Life Education and Resource Network (L.E.E.R.N.), the largest African American pro-life network in America, and the response was huge.

Rev. Hunter said the “Black Lives Matter” displays they exhibited also included a picture of an the aborted child.

The message each sign conveyed was that all black lives matter, born and unborn.

JH - all-lives-matter

Additional signs read: “Hands up don’t shoot“, and “Abortion Suppresses The Black Vote.”

JH  abortion-surpresses-black-vote

JH  Dont-Shoot-1024x512

It was the most moving thing,” Dr. Johnny Hunter an exhibit organizer reported.

Hunter said the students stopped in their tracks when they saw the display.

In addition, the black students enthusiastically took copies of Maafa21, a documentary about the racist history of abortion produced by Life Dynamics, which features a powerful sermon of Rev. Hunter’s.

IMG_5481

Another organizer, Rev. Clenard Childress, founder of Black Genocide.org, also spoke to Life Dynamics about the event and pointed out that Planned Parenthood’s racist founder, Margaret Sanger used religion i.e. “black pastors” to hide her eugenic plot.

“In our exchanges with hundreds of students, and with the golden opportunity to debate over the campus radio station, it was quite evident faith is still vital in the presentation of the truth in the pro-life debate. In the final analysis, we see that a very high percentage of the African American students consider their faith as important and that abortion is a violation of their faith. Hearts were won and opinions changed!” Rev Childress stated.

IMG_5539

“After viewing the signs, many students sat down and read the pamphlets we were handing out.

“We passed out Mark Cruthcher’s MAAFA 21 to both students and staff. One teacher even played it while we were there in their sociology class,” he stated.

IMG_5451

Rev. Hunter added that, “Even students that professed to be pro-choice had to do some thinking after the dialoguing went on.”

Woman walks away shocked

Hunter said that Planned Parenthood and their supporters tried to shut down the display but failed.

The most powerful part of all is when I looked at the sheet we had put out for students to sign up and almost thirty students had signed up to do something when this was over with,” he said.

Watch Dr. Johnny Hunter talk about the event on the May 2015 episode of Life Talk TV.
