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?

Civil Rights matter to everyone not just those who survive the womb

Posted in Civil Rights, Lyndon B Johnson, Maafa21 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 2, 2015 by saynsumthn

REPUBLISHING FROM LIFE DYNAMICS BLOG:

LBJ signs Civil Rights Act 1964

51 years ago today, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawing racial discrimination in public accommodations such as hotels, theaters, parks, restaurants, and other public places.

LBJ Civil Rights ACt 1964

The Act guaranteed full and equal enjoyment of goods and services and public accommodations without discriminating or segregating on the basis of race, color, religion, or national origin.

LBJ signed the document protecting the basic civil rights of minorities, stating that, “It’s purpose is not to divide but to end divisions,” he said.

Life Dynamics‘ president Mark Crutcher points out that this nation still has a long way to go in protecting the rights of all Black people.

What we learned in Maafa21 tells us we still have a long way top go,” Crutcher stated.

Maafa21 documents how the Black community has been targeted with eugenics trough abortion and birth control since the days of slavery and the plot is still being carried out to this day.

Sadly, Life Dynamics also uncovered that Johnson was not without his flaws.

As Life Dynamics points out in the film, during the 1960’s a growing number of civil-rights activists discovered that that “family planning” was a code word for abortion and birth control and that it was being pushed by the government as way to avoid putting money into the black community.

One of those who pushed this plan was the Democrat President, who, in June of 1965, stated that every five dollars the government spent on population control was worth more than a hundred dollars invested in economic growth.

Then, at the urging of Republican Congressman, George Bush, Johnson became the first U.S. president to endorse federal funding for birth control.

LBJ

In 1966, LBJ would also accept Planned Parenthood’s highest award, the Margaret Sanger Award, for his policies pushing family planning on foreign countries.

Sanger founded Planned Parenthood and in her autobiography she discussed a speech she gave at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silver Lake New Jersey. She bragged about the fact that, afterward, she was invited by 12 other Klan chapters to speak at their events. Sanger wrote that she found the Klan to be an interesting group.

Sanger Klan Planned Parenthood Maafa21 In her Autobiography KKK

It was at about this same time that political leaders from both parties began to increase their demands that aid to the poor – whether abroad or within the United States – be tied to birth control.

In 1965, former Republican President, Dwight Eisenhower, complained that the United States was spending money to slow the population growth of responsible families while at the same time providing financial incentives for ignorant, feebleminded and lazy people to have more babies.

Eisenhower

He said that history would rightly condemn the United States if we didn’t link welfare to family-planning.

At that time, Eisenhower was the co-chairman of a Planned Parenthood fund-raising campaign along with former Democratic President, Harry S. Truman.

And Johnson’s views were apparently shared by his Republican successor as well.

John Ehrlichman, who was an assistant to President Richard Nixon, wrote that Nixon once told him that African-Americans could not really benefit from federal programs because they are genetically inferior to whites.

nixon-blacks-inferior

Later, Nixon would label birth control a national priority and sign legislation to make it available as a service of the U.S. government.

Then in March of 1972, the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future which Nixon had created three years earlier with the help of Congressional Democrats, began calling for the nationwide legalization of abortion.

Commission-on-Poulation-Growth-and-teh-American-future-Maafa21

This excerpt from Maafa21 explains Nixon’s attitude:

Watch Maafa21 in full here.

Although Johnson’s 1964 Civil Rights Act is worthy of celebration today, we should also remember that there is another civil war being waged against an entire class of people going on today, the unborn child in the womb.

Millions of babies have been murdered by abortion since the Supreme Court legalized it in all fifty states back in 1973.

And tragically, today, more Blacks are killed by abortion than by all other causes of death combined.

Since 1973 25 percent black Maafa21

Abortion targets the Black community as Life Dynamics has documented in their report, Racial Targeting and Population Control, which can be read here.

As we celebrate this important day, Crutcher says that we should fight until the Civil Rights of all lives and all Black lives are protected, “Civil Rights matter to everyone not just to those who have escaped the womb,” he said.

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.

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.”

Is Obama’s Community College freebie really a draft into a Civilian National Service?

Posted in Civil Rights, Civilian National Security Force, Draft, Free Tuition, Military, National Service with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 9, 2015 by saynsumthn

When I heard that President Obama was going to recommend free Community College – I wasn’t fully surprised. His socialist “Government as daddy” style of governing is nothing new.

But….something kept bugging me about this. And then I knew what it was.

Back in May, I wrote a blog entitled: Push towards Universal National Service: voluntary but an expected rite of citizenship.

I am republishing it below, but let me point out a few things.

The blog post explored the idea of a voluntary National Service in civilian or military service and it questioned the “voluntary” aspect.

A Universal National Service Act introduced in 2013 reads: “To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or in civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, and for other purposes.

Now- let me quote a 2012 piece from the New York Times, entitled, Let’s Draft Our Kids, by Thomas E. Ricks, and reads in part: “IN late June, Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the former commander of international forces in Afghanistan, called for reinstating the draft. “I think if a nation goes to war, every town, every city needs to be at risk,” he said at the Aspen Ideas Festival. “You make that decision and everybody has skin in the game.”

NYT DRaft Kids

This was the first time in recent years that a high-profile officer has broken ranks to argue that the all-volunteer force is not necessarily good for the country or the military. Unlike Europeans, Americans still seem determined to maintain a serious military force, so we need to think about how to pay for it and staff it by creating a draft that is better and more equitable than the Vietnam-era conscription system.

A revived draft, including both males and females, should include three options for new conscripts coming out of high school. Some could choose 18 months of military service with low pay but excellent post-service benefits, including free college tuition. These conscripts would not be deployed but could perform tasks currently outsourced at great cost to the Pentagon: paperwork, painting barracks, mowing lawns, driving generals around, and generally doing lower-skills tasks so professional soldiers don’t have to. If they want to stay, they could move into the professional force and receive weapons training, higher pay and better benefits.”

So….is the Obama “freebie” connected to this National Service idea? We shall soon see.

Read my May blog below:

Push towards Universal National Service: voluntary but an expected rite of citizenship.
by Carole Novielli

Aspen festival

A new push by former U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal seeks to force – I mean “obligate” – every young adult into one year of government indoctrination – I mean “service.”

franklin_logo_4_0

At the 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival, General (Ret.) Stanley McChrystal, Former Commander of U.S. Forces Afghanistan, noted that for first time in history less than 1 percent of Americans are serving in our nation’s military. He called for large-scale national service, either military or civilian. Aspen then created the “Franklin Project,” after Ben Franklin, who believed service by citizens was central to our democracy.

Here is what General McCrystal said at the Aspen Festival:

NEW AMERICAN RITE OF PASSAGE

McCrystal Aspen Festival 2

McCrystal explains, “When we say Universal, we want an expectation. We want..people to get into cocktail parties and talk about ‘where’d you serve?’…And if you didn’t, I kinda want the people who didn’t to look at the floor with embarrassment…I just want service to be something that people feel responsible to other Americans and so I think that the idea that it’s a rite of passage creates and expectation.

According to their Plan of Action– the Franklin Project would make National Service a “New America Rite of Passage

Franklin Project Rite of Passage

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed McChrystal writes:

Here is a specific, realistic proposal that would create one million full-time civilian national-service positions for Americans ages 18-28 that would complement the active-duty military–and would change the current cultural expectation that service is only the duty of those in uniform. At age 18, every young man and woman would receive information on various options for national service. Along with the five branches of the military, graduates would learn about new civilian service branches organized around urgent issues like education, health care and poverty. The positions within these branches would be offered through AmeriCorps as well as through certified nonprofits. Service would last at least a year.

As The Atlantic details, McCrystal subsequently wrote that “instead of making national service legally mandatory, corporations and universities, among other institutions, could be enlisted to make national service socially obligatory.” As he envisions it, “schools can adjust their acceptance policies and employers their hiring practices to benefit those who have served–and effectively penalize those who do not.”

According to their website, the Franklin Project envisions a future in which all young Americans are asked, “Where did you serve?” and can answer with pride.

( For now ) they say that National service would be voluntary, “but expected, in the military or as a civilian for a full year or more at modest pay, and a rite of passage for every young American.”

Back in January, President Obama called service an obligation, “citizenship demands a sense of common cause; participation in the hard work of self-government; an obligation to serve our communities,” he said during the State of the Union address.

The Franklin Projects explains, Americans can discharge their national service obligation by either serving in the military or as a civilian fulltime for a year or more through programs such as Teach for America, AmeriCorps or the Peace Corps. For civilian service, a small living allowance is provided, so that all young Americans have opportunities to serve….We are working closely with the Administration to help federal departments and agencies use national service to meet their missions, such as FEMA Corps. The 21st Century Conservation Service Corps, a public-private partnership across 8 public land agencies and the private sector, could achieve significant scale.

So this is voluntary or is it the beginning steps of a compulsory requirement?

In 2013, Rep. Charles Rangel introduced the Universal National Service Act Introduced in the House which, “Declares that it is the obligation of every U.S. citizen, and every other person residing in the United States, between the ages of 18 and 25 to perform a 2-year period of national service, unless exempted, either through military service or through civilian service in a federal, state, or local government program or with a community-based agency or entity engaged in meeting human, educational, environmental, or public safety needs. Requires induction into national service by the President. Allows persons to be inducted only: (1) under a declaration of war or national emergency, or (2) when members of the Armed Forces are engaged in a contingency operation. Requires each person, before induction, to be examined physically and mentally for classification for fitness to perform. Sets forth provisions governing: (1) induction deferments, postponements, and exemptions, including exemption of a conscientious objector from combatant training and military service; and (2) discharge following national service. Amends the Military Selective Service Act to authorize the military registration of females.”

This 2013 bill is a new version of a legislation introduced in 2010 which used slightly different language: “To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or in civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, and for other purposes.”

Universal National Service

In his Wall Street Journal op-ed, McCrystal agrees with the idea of Universal National Service when he writes, Universal national service should become a new American rite of passage,” he says. “At age 18, every young man and woman would receive information on various options for national service…Instead of making national service legally mandatory, corporations and universities, among other institutions, could be enlisted to make national service socially obligatory. Schools can adjust their acceptance policies and employers their hiring practices to benefit those who have served—and effectively penalize those who do not.”

McCrystan Universal National Service

Whatever the details of a specific plan, the objective must be a cultural shift that makes service an expected rite of citizenship. Anything less fails Lincoln’s test,” he adds.

According to the Plan, the 21st Century National Service System—wherein universal national service becomes a new American rite of
passage and helps confront our nation’s pressing problems—will:

• Link military and civilian service as two sides of the same coin;
• Challenge all young adults (ages 18 to 28) to give a year or more of full-time service to their country;
• Establish national service corps, building on those proposed in the Edward M. Kennedy Serve
America Act, that will unite each generation in common purpose through service;
• Strengthen and expand the existing infrastructure of the Peace Corps, VISTA, AmeriCorps, and other
national service efforts;
• Call upon the private sector, industry groups, and professional associations to take the lead in
supporting and expanding national service corps within their fields;
• Partner with the growing non-profit infrastructure—in colleges, community organizations and faithbased
institutions—and leverage new technologies to embed full-time national service across our society;
and
• Ask all federal departments and agencies to use civilian national service members to help accomplish
their missions.

In addition, the plan is the centerpiece of the 21st Century National Service System is the mobilization of young people to serve full-time in national service corps and the linkage of military and civilian service in creative new ways. To accelerate the creation of such a system, the plan proposes:

At 18, every American would receive information on options to serve in one of the five branches of the Armed Forces or in a number of civilian national service corps, helping to improve recruitment for military and civilian national service.

Young adults would serve full-time in national service corps. The civilian national service corps would be in areas where full-time civilian national service has been shown to make a significant difference. Young people may apply to serve in any one of a number of national service corps through national service organizations that bring together people of different backgrounds and zip codes to be trained and work together in solving pressing public problems.

In addition to the national service corps,” the plan details,”young people may apply to serve full-time in nonprofits, colleges and universities, and social enterprises that become certified as national service organizations by meeting certain criteria. These criteria include creating full-time national service positions, defining the service work they will perform, providing a living allowance, ensuring to the extent practicable they will maximize diversity across geography, race, ethnicity and income; providing training, and articulating clear outcomes for the service of participants.”

Ok…I have to ask….would this “service” include working at abortion giant Planned Parenthood?

Jackson police watch as thieves steal pro-life group’s property

On July 17, 2014, the national pro-life group, Created Equal, who was recently attacked by a pro-choice woman in Ohio which made national news, uploaded a video showing complete disregard by the Jackson, Mississippi police department as their property was stolen.

The group visited Jackson site of the state’s last remaining abortion facility as part of Day 4 of their Summer Justice Ride.

Jackson CLinic July 2014

Upon arrival, and despite several attempts by Created Equal’s leader, Mark Harrington to convince police to intervene, their pro-life signs, displaying pictures of abortion victims, were stolen while police stood by idly.

In the video, you can see the group notifying police that a man is walking off with their signs:

The man takes the group’s sign into a building as they ask him not to steal their property:

A second man brings several signs into the same building- both men boldly walk in front of the video with no concern about the police who are standing by and just watching.

A third thief picks up a sign right in front of law enforcement and walks off.

When the group continues to petition the police – one officer is heard on the video saying, “I’m watching.”

The group’s leader, Mark Harrington continues to request police stop the thieves- and the police continue to stand by and watch without intervention:

According to the group-since the incident occurred, charges have been filed against the perpetrator….

Instead of criticizing the police for their inaction- here is how the local media reported this:

FROM WAPT:

The group began its protest outside the clinic, but when they started putting signs up in front of businesses across the street, a problem arose. The protesters claim some business owners removed the signs and stole them, so they called police.

Nathan Glenn, who owns Rooster’s, a restaurant in the building across the street from the clinic, said he didn’t take the signs off the sidewalk, but he was unhappy about how the protesters affected his business Thursday morning.

“(Customers) can’t get to my building. They can’t get to my front door. I’ve got four signs this way and three signs behind you,” Glenn said.

Protesters argued that the business owners had no right to touch the signs because they were on a public sidewalk. The municipal code for the city of Jackson prohibits portable signs. But the signs stayed on the sidewalk until the protest wrapped up, even after police arrived.

And the Clarion-Ledger said:

The protesters say some business owners took the signs.

“Why do the same people who mark the 1964 Civil Rights Act ignore the most widespread civil rights crime of our day: Black Genocide ?” ~ Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher.

Today, Life Dynamics, Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas, is celebrating 50 years of Civil Rights in America.

Wednesday, July 2, 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

As we celebrate this momentous occasion, Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics and producer of the documentary film on Black Genocide, Maafa21, asks, “Why do the same people who mark the 1964 Civil Rights Act ignore the most widespread civil rights crime of our day: Black Genocide ?”
CivilRightsafter50years

As Life Dynamics documents in Maafa21, racism in America came in many forms.

One of those forms was eugenics, a well thought out agenda to limit the births of the Black population.

Klan abortion

In Maafa21, Life Dynamics unmasks the attitude of racists who openly admitted that they wanted to target Black babies in the womb.
LeanderPerezQuote

Just a few years after the Civil Rights Act was passed Louisiana State Judge, Leander Perez said this, “The best way to hate a nig*** is to hate him before he is born,” 1970.

That statement is profound because today racists now use abortion to target the Black population before “they are born.”

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, explains, “Abortion is not about woman’s rights or reproductive freedom it is simply about eugenics. We not only documented the eugenic targeting of minorities in our film, Maafa21 but also in a report we published in 2011. Research we produced for our report, Racial Profiling by Planned Parenthood and the American Abortion Lobby, clearly shows that a majority of family planning centers market abortion to minorities by locating their centers in minority communities.”

Stats reveal that today more African Americans are killed inside American abortion clinics than are killed from AIDS, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, accidents and violent crime combined.

Since 1973 25 percent black Maafa21

In fact, every 4 days more Blacks are executed by abortion than the Klan lynched in 150 years

Black abortion by the numbers

EARLY CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS:

In Maafa21, Life Dynamics details how early civil rights activists recognized this danger:

Van Keys Maafa21

The racist tells you to take birth control pills to kill, to murder life that might have existed if you had not … They are planning mass extermination of people they consider dispensable.” ~ Van Keys, Oakland Chapter, Black Panther Party said in 1969.

George Clements

In 1973, Father George Clements, an African American priest told Jet Magazine, “I believe the entire question of abortions is just one more in the continuous series of events to eliminate the Black population.”

BlackPantherParty Quote

A member of the Detroit Chapter of the Black Panther Party once wrote, “A true revolutionary cares about the people; he cares to the point that he is willing to put his life on the line to help the masses of poor and oppressed people. He would never think of killing his unborn child.”

alvedamaafaquote

Perhaps the most stunning statement in Maafa21 comes from Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, Alveda King, who points out that, “When we said we would no longer sit at the back of the bus, a place was being reserved for us down at the abortion clinic.

Crutcher concludes, “If slavery had never existed, population control organizations like Planned Parenthood would not exist today. When you look at what we document in Maafa21, it is clear that the impetus behind the legalization of abortion was eugenics.”

As we remember the Civil Rights Act of 1964, we need to ask why those who say they stand for civil rights today remain silent and in some cases participate in the genocide of black babies in the womb through abortion.
