Black Pastors: Say NO to Planned Parenthood's Money

Candidates should not accept the abortionists' $10 million offered as campaign contributions

-- From "Black Pro-Life Advocates Hope Candidates Refuse Planned Parenthood Funds" by Steven Ertelt, Editor 6/24/08

Washington, DC ( -- A coalition of black pro-life pastors and advocates plan a march at the headquarters of both the national Republican and Democratic parties on Thursday [June 26]. They want candidates of both parties to refuse any of the $10 million Planned Parenthood plans to spend on the upcoming elections.

The African-American activists say Planned Parenthood targets black women and historically black communities with their abortion centers.

They also point to an investigation showing staff at Planned Parenthood offices gladly accepting donations from a caller pretending to want the funds used for abortions on black babies.

“We are very concerned that Planned Parenthood is targeting African American communities and African American babies,” Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr, told Fox News.

“Any candidate who continues … by accepting campaign contributions says that you’re not as concerned about civil rights for all people,” King said. “It’s an anti-civil rights act to support Planned Parenthood.”

Day Gardner of the National Black Pro-Life Union and King are leading the effort, which will involve 50 black pastors.
