Remembering Dr. Dolores Grier, pro-life activist who decried abortion as Black genocide

The Catholic and pro-life communities are mourning the death of Dr. Dolores Bernadette Grier, an advocate for life and a gracious Black leader in the New York archdiocese, who passed away on February 22, 2018 — her birthday. As a Black pro-life activist, Dr. Grier founded the Association of Black Catholics Against Abortion and served on the board of the African American Society Against Abortion. She was outspoken about abortion’s impact on the Black community.

Dr. Grier’s voice in defense of life will be missed, but we in the pro-life community are grateful for the legacy she has left behind. A Funeral Mass will be offered at Dr. Grier’s parish church, St. Charles Borromeo in Harlem, on Wednesday, March 7 at 11 a.m.

In 1989, Dr. Grier joined a group of pro-life women, including, Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first Black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School and the first woman employed as a general surgeon at Boston University Medical Center, for a press conference picked up by C-SPAN. Dr. Grier began her speech by calling abortion racism:

We do believe that more than anything else, abortion is racism. It is a way of pruning, if you will, the Black population…. In 1973, shortly after civil rights struggles – when there were more benefits for the Black people, all of a sudden we were given this free, free thing from the society of America: abortion. 78 percent of your free abortion clinics were placed in Black and Urban areas, for the purpose of [inaudible] free of charge from a racist society. To put it in words of one pro-abortionist, “We don’t need so many Negroes anymore – there’s no more cotton to pick.”

… Black women, let it be stated, Black women never demonstrated, demanded or even requested the right to an abortion. We’ve been asking for the right to decent housing, the right to education, in fact, the right to health car, and all we’ve been given free of charge is the right to kill our unborn child…

It is demeaning to the Black woman, because, when you wanted us (in other words) when we were on the plantation, you snatched the newborn baby from our arms and sold it into slavery. Today, you cut it out of the womb and throw it in the garbage or use it for human experimentation.

Dr. Grier later told those attending that conference that a majority of Blacks oppose abortion and she said she was hopeful that the attitudes of Americans are changing. “I believe that as more and more of the education and the true fact, that there is a life in the womb, that people will begin to say, ‘I do not want to kill,’” she said.

In a prepared statement (page 173) before the Senate Labor and Human Resources Committee during its May 1990 hearing on the “Freedom of Choice Act,” Grier wrote:

After many years of the civil rights struggle for equal opportunity in housing, education and employment, Black women have only been granted the right to kill their children in the womb. Free health care only includes abortion…. The White master is still telling Black people what is best for us – death instead of life.

Delores Grier written statement before Congress abortion and Black Genocide

Grier went on to say (page 170) in part:

I believe that one of the reasons that so many women, especially poor women, minority women, Black women in particular and young women, have abortions is because they really do not know what an abortion does, how it is performed and the effects after they have an abortion and the complications…. Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy which results in the death of a developing human. This is how it is defined in Webster’s medical dictionary 1986. Abortion, as many people may believe, is not a medical procedure; it is invasive surgery where the surgeon uses steel instruments to terminate the life of the unborn child in the mother’s womb….

Delores Grier statement before Congress abortion and racism

Advances in science have opened the womb that was once hidden, so we can now observe the growth and the movement of the unborn child through ultrasound…. Yet, the child terminators endeavor to hide the humanity of the unborn by describing the child as a “fetus….”

I would like to now say that I am speaking as a [B]lack women…sad to say that…many of the [Bl]ack men and women in Congress will be recorded in history as having contributed to the demise of the African American race in this country. They are rejecting their own African heritage, which regards the unborn as those waiting to be born. As they say in the African villages, no one knows whose womb will bear the chief. I would also like to say that 97 percent of the abortionists who kill unborn [B]lack babies in the inner city are white American males, and they are paid, directly or indirectly, by funding from the United States Government…

In 1992, Dr. Grier again agreed with other Black leaders within her community that abortion was a tool of genocide. “What do you see here? Unless you are white, unless you are wealthy… you really shouldn’t come into the world,” she stated.

She then questioned why abortion was being used to solve the problems of poor women, and referred to abortion as “pruning the Black race,” a concept Dr. Grier said began with Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s “Negro Project”:

We were not equal to white people and she [Margaret Sanger] didn’t think that we should populate the earth and she wanted to eliminate anybody who had color.

Why are you taking that woman, because of her situation, and resolving her problem by murder? What are you doing to her and what are you doing to yourself as a society by saying that this is the only way you can solve it? She is a human being, she can be talked to?

Dr. Dolores Grier saw Planned Parenthood and abortion as Black Genocide and the pruning of the Black race

In that same article, Dr. Grier said that as a woman of color, she was influenced to speak out about abortion after hearing a moving speech in 1977 by civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson, who was once an outspoken advocate for life, at that time. She said, “After the talk, I went up and said, ‘Rev. Jackson, I’m going to join the pro-life movement. You said the pro-life movement needed youth and color, and I am the color.’”

Sadly Jesse Jackson soon changed his position on abortion when he ran for president. Read Jackson’s pro-life statements before his flip here.

In 1995, after President Bill Clinton nominated Henry W. Foster, a Black abortionist who had served on the board of Planned Parenthood, to be the Surgeon General of the United States, Dr. Grier spoke out, saying,”The man is not Black. The man is not white. He is an abortionist who terminates life in the womb and that’s what he should be judged by.”

Dr. Grier recently told the Catholic Program, The Journey Home, that we need to pray and fast more for life:

We must bear witness to true life. I say true-life because we have too many of those who say pro-choice. Pro-choice is the comfort zone for our legislators who’d rather say pro-choice – the right to choose. Choose what? Whether or not to kill the child in the womb, that’s what she’s choosing.

According to Catholic New York (CNY), Grier was named vice chancellor by Cardinal John O’Connor, then Archbishop of New York, in 1985. An announcement about Grier’s death published by in CNY says that the Grier was “believed to have been the first black woman appointed to such a position nationwide.” The publication then expounded on Grier’s pro-life stance:

Miss Grier spoke with conviction and authority against the “black genocide” of abortion that continues to grip the black and Hispanic communities in New York City, a message that was unpopular in some circles. In a 1994 CNY article about the first Central Harlem Vicariate Respect Life Conference, Miss Grier strongly criticized Planned Parenthood’s abortion practices. “What are they bringing to us, people of color?” she asked. “They’re not bringing jobs, they’re not bringing food, they’re not bringing skills. They’re bringing death.”

In 1993, Miss Grier refused an honor from the New York City branch of the NAACP because of the organization’s pro-abortion stance.

That 1993 NAACP “honor” was for Grier to be the recipient of the Women’s History Month award. She refused, stating, “As president of the Association of Black Catholics, I believe abortion to be a racist weapon of genocide against black people.”

Today, abortion disproportionately targets Blacks in the womb more than any other race, and the number one provider of abortions in the nation is Planned Parenthood. The abortion lobby would like to convince Americans that our society — and specifically the Black population of America — is okay with abortion, but this is simply false. Black activists like Dolores Grier have been warning America for years and years that abortion would decimate the Black community and become a tool of eugenic genocide against Black people.

Black Church Leaders from COGIC pray outside Planned Parenthood

Bishops and pastors gather at Missouri Planned Parenthood to condemn Black genocide

On November 11, 2017, a large group of Church of God in Christ (COGIC) bishops and pastors gathered outside Planned Parenthood of St. Louis to pray and decry Black genocide in their community as part of the COGIC’s Family Life Campaign, a partnership with Human Coalition. Catherine Davis, founder of the Restoration Project, called the event “historic,” adding, “Many who were out there were bishops. The significance of this was remarkable because of the level of influence each bishop and pastor has within the church and their various communities.”

Catherine Davis

Davis told Live Action News that the pastors and ministry leaders participating in the prayer vigil were attending the COGIC’s annual convocation in St Louis. Although many Black pastors have stood outside Planned Parenthood and abortion facilities around the nation, Davis said she was unaware of a group of clerical leaders of this size participating at one time.

The St. Louis facility commits abortions up to almost 22 weeks and is known for its high number of 911 calls; it has sent at least 65 women to hospital emergency rooms since 2009.

“This location is located between two colleges, where they are targeting Black women,” Davis said in her live Facebook video. “We will not allow Planned Parenthood to target our women and we are taking a stand.”

The attendees from across the nation recognized how abortion was decimating the Black community, Davis said, and the group wanted women entering Planned Parenthood to know that help was available through the COGIC.

Black women pray outside Planned Parenthood

“We’re out here… to encourage women who come here for abortions to chose life instead of death for their unborn babies,” one of the attendees stated.

Another said the group was “prayerfully and peacefully serving women and encouraging them to make a healthy choice for themselves and their children.”

“Not only does abortion affect the woman but it affects everyone around her,” said another member, “And so we just want to make it clear that we stand against abortion today. And, we’re going to continue to be a part of the movement within our lives, within our church, and the community. ”

Others noted that they chose to participate to “pray against genocide” and “pray against population control” and against what Planned Parenthood is doing in the Black community by “aborting our babies.”

Black Bishops denounce Planned Parenthood

 

Bishop Vincent Matthews, president of the International Missions Department for COGIC, estimated the crowd at approximately 150 and described Planned Parenthood as a “lynching spot in St. Louis” where, “they lynch people, mainly Black folks but all kinds of people. Black people, white people, Latinos, Asians….”

“This is the same city [St. Louis] that Dred Scott came to, to be free and they told him ‘go back and be a slave….’ — that he was not a real person. And they want us to go back to being slaves,” Matthews said.

Bishop Mathews regularly encourages members to adopt children from the foster care system as well as babies in danger of being aborted. “It’s about going home, rolling up your sleeves, and taking care of a child,” he noted.

According to Davis, Bishop Matthews also told the crowd that the “Church of God in Christ will not be a Negro Project denomination.” Matthews was referring to eugenicist Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s “Negro Project,” pushing birth control on the Black community.

In a letter that Sanger penned to her financier Clarence Gamble, the Planned Parenthood founder schemed to use Black ministers to introduce their congregants to the “Negro Project” agenda because, she said, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” and if it did, these ministers could “straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Pastor Dean Nelson, National Outreach Director at Human Coalition, attended the prayer vigil. Human Coalition has partneredwith the COGIC’s Family Life Campaign to “advance their common mission of making abortion unthinkable and unavailable in America.” Nelson called the Church of God in Christ “one of the most Christ centered, socially conscience Black denominations in the country,” and explained to rally participants how abortion disproportionately impacts the Black community. He also pointed out that in New York, where Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger opened her first facility, more Black babies are aborted than are born.

Dean Nelson of Human Coalition prays outside Planned Parenthood

“And, her [Margaret Sanger’s] words to Clarence Gamble, head of Proctor and Gamble at the time, was ‘we don’t want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. And she used ministers in her diabolical plot.”

Nelson said the COGIC ministers were taking a stand against this eugenic, racist agenda: “We’re engaging with men and women of God in this country who happen to be African American that are saying we’re standing up and saying ‘NO MORE,’ not on our watch.”

Planned Parenthood and the media usually describe Sanger as a “birth control pioneer,” but she also met with members of the Klan, advocated eugenics, and supported the use of sterilization to rid the planet of the “unfit” (which, in her mind, heavily included minority populations). Sanger wrote of her meeting with the Klan in her autobiography:

I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…. I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…. I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…. In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.

But Planned Parenthood‘s ties to eugenics go well beyond their founder Margaret Sanger — and its diabolical agenda of targeting the Black community for abortion has had staggering results.

For years, pro-lifers have contended that abortion disproportionately affects the African American community. They point to US Census Bureau data estimates, which show that in 2014, while Blacks made up approximately 13 percent of the US population, CDC figures for 2014 reveal that non-Hispanic Black women accounted for 36 percent of reported abortions for “race/ethnicity.” And, according to abortion numbers reported by Planned Parenthood‘s former “special affiliate,” The Guttmacher Institute (founded by a leader of the American Eugenics Society), 28 percent of abortions reported to them in 2014 were committed on Black women.

A recent survey published by Guttmacher (which is funded in part by taxpayers) revealed that Black women had a higher rate of prior abortions, because the availability of taxpayer-funded abortions were a contributing factor for women who had at least one prior abortion.

Guttmacher Prior Abortion Survey

 

The report found that Black women had a higher rate of prior abortions: “Slightly more than half of Black abortion patients had a prior abortion (54%), higher than any other racial and ethnic group.”

Members of the COGIC denounced the genocidal effects of abortion, holding signs that read, “COGIC DENOUNCES BLACK GENOCIDE…. ABORTION IS THE #1 KILLER OF AFRICAN AMERICANS IN THE NATION.”

Bishop Patrick Wooden also spoke in a Live Facebook feed while outside Planned Parenthood, announcing, “We are here to say that all lives matter, especially the lives of the unborn.”

“We’re here to say that they matter…We are here and we are going to fight.”

As the members walked the sidewalk in front of the abortion facility you could hear them lovingly crying out to offer the women going to Planned Parenthood assistance. You could also hear them crying out to Jesus and praying that He would end the genocide. Many in the group also prayed for the doctors and nurses that worked inside the Planned Parenthood facility.

“We had to be here… we’ve joined the fight,” said Pastor Michael Gantz from Las Vegas. “We feel very moved to stand up against this genocide…. We can’t just talk about it – we’ve got to be about it.”

Bishop Matthews added, “We want women who come here to know we don’t condemn you…. If you don’t have options, we will adopt your baby…. just don’t have an abortion.”

Planned Parenthood within miles of Black mega Churches says Black Pastor

Posted in Black leaders on abortion, Black Pastor with tags , , , , , , , on September 8, 2014 by saynsumthn

Dallas area pastor, Stephen Broden was outside Planned Parenthood’s Dallas mega Center this weekend protesting the abortion giant’s placement of their centers in black communities and specifically near several Black mega churches.

Broden

60 to 65% of all of their facilities are located within a two mile radius of the Black community, ” said the Fair Parks Bible Fellowship pastor. “We believe Planned Parenthood is deliberately targeting the Black community. Through sophisticated marketing and slick advertisement they are convincing women- black women- and women in particular, that the only solution to unintended pregnancies is to murder their children,” he states on a video.
newppDallas

“We believe there is a deliberate attempt on the part of Planned Parenthood to sell death in our community…Abortions hurt women…Not only does it hurt women, it kills babies and it destroys families. We are here as an expression of the intent to stop the killing fields in our communities,” Pastor Broden says passionately.

Rev. Broden points out that the new Dallas Planned Parenthood abortion clinic is located within a few miles of many mega Black churches. He says Planned Parenthood is attempting to influence the black community by placing this abortion clinic right in the middle so many black churches.

“This facility, this Planned Parenthood facility, is located right in the middle of some of the largest Black churches in the Dallas / Ft Worth Metroplex,” says the Black pastor.

Pastor Broden then offers free copies of the documentary film, Maafa21. The film was produced in Texas by Life Dynamics, Inc. and exposes the racist and eugenics agenda of Planned Parenthood. You can watch the film in full here http://www.maafa21.com.

Planned Parenthood CEO speaks at Women in the NAACP event

This week, the North Carolina NAACP hosted the “Women in the NAACP Conference/Mother of the Year Coronation.”

The event took place 3rd May at New Light Missionary Baptist Church in Greensboro, NC.

Janet Colm 2

But – according to Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina, one of their CEO’s spoke at this NAACP event.

Planned Parenthood is an organization whose founder was an admitted Klan speaker, and inviting Planned Parenthood to a local NAACP event seems an odd choice to me.

SangerKKKBook

Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, after which the organization still names their most prestigious award, admitted in her own autobiography that she gave Klan Speeches. In addition, Sanger and many of the original Planned Parenthood Founders were members of the American Eugenics Society.

Planned Parenthood Action Fund of Central North Carolina boasted on their facebook page, “Our own CEO, Janet Colm, will be speaking as well as our Bertha “B” Holt award winner of this year, Senator Earline Parmon. It’s sure to be a great event!

Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina clearly offers abortions:

According to Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina’s 2014 annual report they assisted 4,295 women in “abortion care” in 2013 alone.

Sadly, during her speech, Planned Parenthood CEO Janet Colm did not try to hide their child killing connections, and told the “good baptists” at this NAACP event that they, in fact, do provide abortion services and it was clear from the vid that no one objected to this.
Janet COlm NAACP

Colm told the NAACP, “I am the CEO of Planned Parenthood. We have, in North Carolina, nine health centers spread across the state. We serve about 25,000 men and women….and in four of our locations we provide respectful compassionate affordable abortion services for women….

Colm also said that she was at this NAACP with “her advocacy hat on” representing Planned Parenthood Action Fund of North Carolina and admitted that Planned Parenthood is “often identified with abortion and it an important part of our service mix…

Colm told the church crowd of NAACP members that the terms “pro-choice” “pro-life” are outdated labels because the “they don’t reflect the reality” of decisions women make.

Colm then told the NAACP church crowd that “I know the NAACP doesn’t have a position on abortion but it does have a position on Health care and that is the spirit that I am here with you today…

Colm then goes onto to say that Health Care is tied to racism and immigration. But fails to mention the racism of Planned Parenthood’s founder. She wastes no time in bringing up the so-called “war on Women” linking it to birth control, Medicaid expansion, federally funded insurance coverage,voting rights, labor rights, and public education.

Despite the clear ties North Carolina has to Eugenics through their health department which was funded by Clarence Gamble, a friend of Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, Colm bragged at the progressiveness of the state with regard to offering birth control through the health department in the 1930’s.
