An Open Letter to African Americans – Can We Have the Conversation? by Catherine Davis

Every day, all across America, more than 1500 black babies die in the abortion chambers that dot urban areas where blacks reside. In state after state, the numbers of abortions performed on black women are 2, 3, 4 sometimes even 6 times the number of blacks in the population in that state. In New York City, and perhaps other states that do not publish abortion data by race (CA, IL and FL for example) more black babies are aborted than are born alive.

A Legal Review of Sherley v. Sebelius and Obama’s Embryonic Stem Cell Research Policy

PDF

by Margaret Datiles, Esq.   

datiles_new.jpgI.    IntroductionIn his August 24, 2010 order in Sherley v. Sebelius [1],  U.S. district court Judge Royce Lamberth declared that the Obama Administration’s new embryonic stem cell research policy is illegal because it violates the plain language and intent of the Dickey-Wicker Amendment.  For a short time, all federally-funded embryonic stem cell (ESCR) research was halted. With the Sherley v. Sebelius case pending, a possible appeal on the horizon, and congressmen introducing legislation to override Dickey before the November elections, the existence of a ban on the use of federal funds for destructive ESCR appears to hang upon a thread.  However, the solid legal reasoning behind Judge Lamberth’s preliminary injunction, the overall public opposition to taxpayer funded ESCR, and other factors may indicate the opposite. Continue reading here. . .

Don’t Tell Me Lies!

by Hannah Carter

It seems these days that a lie is told so easily, part of the problem being that we live in a society that doesn’t verify the original sources of information.

America is not a Christian nation! Lie!

America is a Pro-Choice nation, another lie especially since the Gallup polls released last week verify again that the majority of Americans are pro-life! The Gallup poll is calling being pro-life “the new normal.”

We don’t know when life begins, Lie!

Alan Guttmacher former President of Planned Parenthood once stated, “it all seems so simple (when life begins), conception confers life.”

This next week Georgia Right to Life and the Radiance Foundation will be partnering for a second set of billboards to be released to impact Georgia. To give you a taste of what the next campaign is going to be like, we wanted to share this video with you that Ryan Bomgardner of the Radiance Foundation created. The title is “Don’t Tell Me Lies”. Watch this video and tell us what you think.

Gov. Mike Huckabee Endorses GA Senate Bill 529 and Asks Georgians to Call Their Georgia House Members

Lawrenceville, GA – Today Governor Mike Huckabee announced his support for SB 529 in a message that is going out to Georgia constituents asking for their support for SB 529. Governor Huckabee noted the importance of this bill, “SB 529 is a simple bill that prevents a woman from being forced to have an abortion against her will and prohibits the use of abortion as a means of race or gender discrimination. I’m asking you to support SB 529 and to ask your representative to support SB 529.”

Two weeks ago the Georgia Senate passed SB 529 with overwhelming support. On Tuesday, April 13, 2010, SB 529 had a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee, but no vote was taken.

SB 529 was drafted by some of the leading pro-life attorney’s in the nation and was reviewed positively by the American Center for Law and Justice, Liberty Counsel, the Thomas Moore Law Center, Americans United for Life, and Focus on the Family.

SB 529 has also received support from the Georgia Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Color People (NAACP), the Georgia Chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), Dr. Alveda King, of King for America, and other prominent Georgia ministry leaders in the African American community.

“We are grateful for the support of Governor Huckabee and other national and state leaders both in the faith community and in the African American community who see why we have to do more to protect women from being forced to have abortions against their will,” stated Dan Becker, President of Georgia Right to Life.

Becker also noted, “We need the help of every Georgian to get this bill passed. We have to let our representatives know that in Georgia we belive that discrimination is wrong in the womb and in the workplace.”

Georgia Right to Life (www.grtl.org) promotes respect and effective legal protection for all human life from its earliest biological beginning through natural death. GRTL is one of the numbers of organizations that have adopted Personhood (www.personhood.net) as the most effective pro-life strategy for the 21st century.

Gendercide:What Happened to 100 Million Baby Girls?

This article was featured  in the March 4, 2010 print edition of The Economist. The UN also released a report last week confirming these numbers. What is interesting is that while this is a worldwide problem, this article clearly states that this problem of gender selection is happening in America as well. What are your thoughts: should someone be able to kill a child because it’s a girl and he or she wanted a boy?

Gendercide: The War on Baby Girls

Killed, aborted or neglected, at least 100m girls have disappeared—and the number is rising

Mar 4th 2010 | From The Economist print edition

IMAGINE you are one half of a young couple expecting your first child in a fast-growing, poor country. You are part of the new middle class; your income is rising; you want a small family. But traditional mores hold sway around you, most important in the preference for sons over daughters. Perhaps hard physical labour is still needed for the family to make its living. Perhaps only sons may inherit land. Perhaps a daughter is deemed to join another family on marriage and you want someone to care for you when you are old. Perhaps she needs a dowry.

Now imagine that you have had an ultrasound scan; it costs $12, but you can afford that. The scan says the unborn child is a girl. You yourself would prefer a boy; the rest of your family clamours for one. You would never dream of killing a baby daughter, as they do out in the villages. But an abortion seems different. What do you do?

For millions of couples, the answer is: abort the daughter, try for a son. In China and northern India more than 120 boys are being born for every 100 girls. Nature dictates that slightly more males are born than females to offset boys’ greater susceptibility to infant disease. But nothing on this scale.

For those who oppose abortion, this is mass murder. For those such as this newspaper, who think abortion should be “safe, legal and rare” (to use Bill Clinton’s phrase), a lot depends on the circumstances, but the cumulative consequence for societies of such individual actions is catastrophic.

China alone stands to have as many unmarried young men—“bare branches”, as they are known—as the entire population of young men in America. In any country rootless young males spell trouble; in Asian societies, where marriage and children are the recognised routes into society, single men are almost like outlaws. Crime rates, bride trafficking, sexual violence, even female suicide rates are all rising and will rise further as the lopsided generations reach their maturity (see article).

It is no exaggeration to call this gendercide. Women are missing in their millions—aborted, killed, neglected to death. In 1990 an Indian economist, Amartya Sen, put the number at 100m; the toll is higher now. The crumb of comfort is that countries can mitigate the hurt, and that one, South Korea, has shown the worst can be avoided. Others need to learn from it if they are to stop the carnage.

The dearth and death of little sisters

Most people know China and northern India have unnaturally large numbers of boys. But few appreciate how bad the problem is, or that it is rising. In China the imbalance between the sexes was 108 boys to 100 girls for the generation born in the late 1980s; for the generation of the early 2000s, it was 124 to 100. In some Chinese provinces the ratio is an unprecedented 130 to 100. The destruction is worst in China but has spread far beyond. Other East Asian countries, including Taiwan and Singapore, former communist states in the western Balkans and the Caucasus, and even sections of America’s population (Chinese- and Japanese-Americans, for example): all these have distorted sex ratios. Gendercide exists on almost every continent. It affects rich and poor; educated and illiterate; Hindu, Muslim, Confucian and Christian alike.

Wealth does not stop it. Taiwan and Singapore have open, rich economies. Within China and India the areas with the worst sex ratios are the richest, best-educated ones. And China’s one-child policy can only be part of the problem, given that so many other countries are affected.

In fact the destruction of baby girls is a product of three forces: the ancient preference for sons; a modern desire for smaller families; and ultrasound scanning and other technologies that identify the sex of a fetus. In societies where four or six children were common, a boy would almost certainly come along eventually; son preference did not need to exist at the expense of daughters. But now couples want two children—or, as in China, are allowed only one—they will sacrifice unborn daughters to their pursuit of a son. That is why sex ratios are most distorted in the modern, open parts of China and India. It is also why ratios are more skewed after the first child: parents may accept a daughter first time round but will do anything to ensure their next—and probably last—child is a boy. The boy-girl ratio is above 200 for a third child in some places.

How to stop half the sky crashing down

Baby girls are thus victims of a malign combination of ancient prejudice and modern preferences for small families. Only one country has managed to change this pattern. In the 1990s South Korea had a sex ratio almost as skewed as China’s. Now, it is heading towards normality. It has achieved this not deliberately, but because the culture changed. Female education, anti-discrimination suits and equal-rights rulings made son preference seem old-fashioned and unnecessary. The forces of modernity first exacerbated prejudice—then overwhelmed it.

But this happened when South Korea was rich. If China or India—with incomes one-quarter and one-tenth Korea’s levels—wait until they are as wealthy, many generations will pass. To speed up change, they need to take actions that are in their own interests anyway. Most obviously China should scrap the one-child policy. The country’s leaders will resist this because they fear population growth; they also dismiss Western concerns about human rights. But the one-child limit is no longer needed to reduce fertility (if it ever was: other East Asian countries reduced the pressure on the population as much as China). And it massively distorts the country’s sex ratio, with devastating results. President Hu Jintao says that creating “a harmonious society” is his guiding principle; it cannot be achieved while a policy so profoundly perverts family life.

And all countries need to raise the value of girls. They should encourage female education; abolish laws and customs that prevent daughters inheriting property; make examples of hospitals and clinics with impossible sex ratios; get women engaged in public life—using everything from television newsreaders to women traffic police. Mao Zedong said “women hold up half the sky.” The world needs to do more to prevent a gendercide that will have the sky crashing down.

A Clarion Call to Clergy: One Black Pastor’s Response to Black Genocide in Georgia

by Pastor James Leak III, MA

Executive Pastor New Harvester International Ministries (N.H.I.M)

“Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet”  (Isa 58:1, New International Version) was the voice from within me.  A range of emotions from righteous indignation to bewilderment engulfed me as I watched the documentary “MAAFA 21”, and the apparent link between eugenics (the study of hereditary improvement of the human race by controlled selective breeding) and the systematic abortion of black babies by Planned Parenthood, formerly called the American Birth Control League (ABCL). At the conclusion of the documentary, I felt a call to action.

Studies of the shift in the abortion demographics from 1974 until 2004, and the purposeful location of abortion clinics in minority communities, corroborate “MAAFA 21’s” claims that black babies are a target of black genocide.  According to a 2008 Guttmacher Institute study (ironically, Guttmacher  was a eugenics supporter as President of Planned Parenthood between 1962-1974),“Although abortion rates have declined among all racial and ethnic groups, large disparities persist, with Hispanic and black women having the procedure at rates three to five times the rate of white women.  In 2004, there were 10.5 abortions per 1,000 white women ages 15 to 44, compared with … 50 per 1,000 black women. That translates into approximately 1 percent of white women having an abortion in 2004, compared with … 5 percent of black women.” A Life Dynamics website reveals that Planned Parenthood operates the nation’s largest chain of abortion clinics and almost 80 percent of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods.

A review of biblical history shows exploitation of the poor by leaders and elected officials to be nothing new. The U.S. government’s funding of Planned Parenthood’s diabolical plans invites God’s wrath upon our nation: “The leaders and the princes (elected officials) will be the first to feel the LORD’s judgment. … You have taken advantage of the poor… (Isa 3:13-14, New Living Translation). As a minister of the gospel, I am compelled to defend the poor from deceptive racism, and protect the innocent unborn in the womb. One of the sins that the Lord clearly hates is the shedding of innocent blood (Prov. 6:17, King James Version), which clearly fits the bill of abortion.

As ministers for the minority communities there is a two-fold strategy that we must employ to combat this genocidal atrocity; a preemptive one and a redemptive one. A preemptive strategy has three components:

  1. Preach and teach abstinence until marriage to our members. Rid ourselves of soft messages absent of sexual purity. No longer should we adopt the weak mindset of using condoms under the fallacy of “people are going to have sex anyway.” The Scriptures admonish us to flee fornication (1 Cor. 6:18).
  2. Teach black men how to take responsibility for their families. Most families today are headed by unwed mothers.
  3. Elect public officials who believe abstinence to be the most effective way of unwanted pregnancies. If there are no officials who believe our standards, we should pray harder for them, train up our own, or give no rest to our eyes until those in office begin to listen.  No longer should we give in to apathy.”Woe to you who are complacent in Zion, and to you who feel secure…”(Amos 6:1, NIV)

A redemptive strategy has two components:

  1. The church should embrace the theology of pure religion, that is, we must care for orphans … and refuse to let the world corrupt us (James 1:26-27, NLT). A movement of adoption of unwanted babies should be promoted. Once these children enter the world, they will need our loving support.
  2. Lobby the state and national elected officials to protect the innocent unborn and defund Planned Parenthood. As taxpayers, we are unwittingly funding the annihilation of the innocent.

National Black Leaders Join Georgia Legislators to End Ugliest Form of Racism: Abortion

Lawrenceville, GA – In 2008, blacks made up 30% of the population but over 57% of the abortions in Georgia. Today national black leaders gathered at the Georgia State Capitol to join a bipartisan group of black and white Georgia legislators to call for an end to the disproportionate levels of abortion in the black community in Georgia.

“Black children are aborted at three times the rate of all other populations. Georgia leads the country in the number of reported abortions performed on black women, 18,901 in 2008 alone,” Catherine Davis, Director of Minority Outreach for Georgia Right to Life reported.

Dr. Johnny Hunter, President of LEARN noted, “The civil rights activists did not fight to make lynching safe, legal, and rare. They ended it. We must fight to end the ugliest form of racism: abortion.”

Hunter also noted, “More black children die every 4 days from abortion, than the Klu Klux Klan killed in 144 years.”

Dr. La Verne Tolbert, former board member of Planned Parenthood stated, “Abortions increase where clinics are located and where are those clinics located? Ninety-four percent of the clinics are located in urban areas where blacks reside. In my own neighborhood which is an African American neighborhood in California, there are three abortion clinics strategically located all in the same area.”

On Tuesday, Representative Barry Loudermilk introduced bipartisan legislation that targets this very issue. The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, HB 1155, makes it illegal to knowingly perform, solicit or accept funding for either race- or sex-selection abortions. This bill is based upon existing federal legislation in the 111th US Congress.

“In Georgia, you cannot fire or hire a person based upon their race or gender. If discrimination is wrong in the workplace and in schools, those same standards should be applied to who enters this life and who doesn’t. No child should be kept from entering this world based upon their race, color, or sex,” said Representative Loudermilk

Dr. Johnny Hunter stated, “All the civil rights gained in education, voting,  and equal job opportunities mean nothing to a dead black child.”

Catherine Davis noted, “HB 1155 will not victimize or harm women, but will hold accountable those who would perform, solicit, or coerce an abortion because of the race, color, or sex of  the child. We must stop the exploitation of these women and their children.” 

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr. commented, “I commend Rep. Loudermilk and the other legislators for ending this last bastion of racism. Abortion is the civil rights issue of the 21st Century.”
