Funny that it's taken this long for some black folks in this country to wake up to the fact that Black women have long been disproportionately affected by the exploitation tactics of Planned Parenthood. If anyone is denying that there are serious problems within the Black culture in regards to abortion, out of wedlock births, Black-on-Black crime and violence (all of which the "1st Black President" Obama has shown little to no interest in taking on since he's been in office) is just ignoring the truth. Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was an admitted racist who founded the group with the goal of exterminating the black race--young black women should be as aware of Sanger's history as much as they are Christopher Columbus'. Sanger's racist roots and Planned Parenthood's billion-dollar operation aren't fabricated or misrepresented, they're something we conservatives like to refer to as facts. With the percentage of young minorities getting pregnant increasing every year, much less thinking it's cool (indeed MTV's "16 & Pregnant" series is now one of its most popular shows), it's up to the black community to stand up to white liberalism and get the abortion rate down before it is to late.
A series of anti-abortion billboards targeting the African-Amerian community in Georgia have pro-choice advocates crying foul.
The series of ads, which went up last week, state that "Black children are an endangered species," and promote the website, www.toomanyaborted.com.
Abortion rights advocates labeled the campaign as "disgusting."
"To use racist arguments to try to bait black people to get them to be anti-abortion is just disgusting," said Professor Beverly Guy-Sheftall, who teaches women's history and feminist thought at Spelman College.
"These one-issue approaches that are not about saving the black family or black children, it's just a big distraction," she said.
The billboards, sponsored by Georgia Right to Life, are part of a push to have legislation established in Georgia that would make it a crime to "solicit a woman to have an abortion based on the race or sex of the unborn child."
Black women accounted for the majority of abortions in that state in 2006, even though blacks make up just a third of its population, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
"I think [the billboard campaign] is necessary," said Cheryl Sullenger, senior policy adviser for Operation Rescue. "Abortion in the black community is at epidemic proportions. They're not really aware of what's actually going on. If it shocks people ... it should be shocking."
