Every 4 days in American more black children are killed through abortion than the KKK killed in 144 years. Georgia leads the country in the number of reported abortions performed on black women, 18,901 in 2008 alone.
According to Catherine Davis, Director of Minority Outreach for the group, the number of Black women getting abortions is all part of the diabolical plan set in place by birth control activists at Planned Parenthood. Davis argues that:
Planned Parenthood’s Negro Project is succeeding. They targeted blacks in order to control their birthrate, limiting the growth of populations they ‘don’t want too many"
Here's the propaganda clip they use to convince us that killing black babies is part of the master scheme of birth control activists everywhere.
I'm not going to defend Margaret Sanger's eugenicist attitudes. But the idea that Planned Parenthood is a racist white plot to destroy Black children is paranoid at best, and highly cynical coming from a group of anti-abortion activists who seem, at least from their webpage, pretty white and kinda racist.
One of their members, responding to their "Endangered Species" campaign wrote:
That is Very hard for me to believe!! From my observations and from the articles I have been reading, there Will come a time in the not-so-distant future when white people will be a Minority. Let’s face it, the schools are packed Full of black and hispanic kids, at least in the metro area I live in! It’s very Rare to see white children in a school anywhere Near our metro area!
You can almost feel her white panic bubbling about being a "Minority" and the "black and hispanic kids" who "pack... our metro area."
Also, when I looked at the eleven candidates that Georgia Right to Life endorses they are all blindingly white (and all men).
Let's just give the anti-abortion activists at Georgia Right to Life the benefit of the doubt for a moment and imagine that they really, really care about racism. Then why aren't they working to confront structural racism? Are they outraged at the poverty a disproportionate number of Black Americans live in? Are they working for more funding for public education? Healthcare for all? In fact, the candidates they support are conservative Republicans to a (white) man, who are opposed to healthcare for all, do not want increases in the educational budget, but remain firmly pro-war, which is a different way to kill a disproportionate number of nonwhite persons.
But if these anti-abortion activists are successful, then Black and white women can face the dilemma of unwanted pregnancies together, alone.
