Stop Trampling the Truth
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Atlanta, GA) Because of the courage, vigilance and commitment to life of some of our Congressmen and women, America is now able to see the clearly drawn battle lines pro-abortion Democrats. Willing to shut down the entire government, Harry Reid informed America that facilitating corporate welfare for Planned Parenthood is more important than the more than 800,000 government workers and all Americans that would have been impacted had the government shut down.
“This issue is not about a woman’s right to choose, women’s health or reproductive services, but is about ending the government’s involvement in carrying out Planned Parenthood’s foundational mission – to reduce the black birth rate”, said Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation. “Over 4500 Title X clinics and the CDC’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program provide the same reproductive health services that Planned Parenthood claims to provide. The $363.2 million they receive from the federal government is needless and duplicative”, he continued.
“Blacks were betrayed late Friday night”, said Stephen Broden, Senior Pastor of Fairpark Bible Fellowship. ”The largest abortion provider in the nation, with $1 billion in assets, is using taxpayer money to target the community their founder called ‘weeds’ and ‘misfits’. They have been allowed to continue this targeting unabated. Shame on Harry Reid and the Senate Pro-abortion Democrats”, he said.
Alveda King says she has had enough: “It is time for Black members of Congress to stand up for Black people, from conception until natural death. Planned Parenthood is deadly welfare, and their tax gravy train needs to be cut.”
The Senate and Congressional Black Caucus betrayed black Americans yet again. By refusing to defund Planned Parenthood during the budget battles, you have guaranteed that mass slaughter of the innocents will continue. Under the guise of women’s rights, Planned Parenthood is killing our babies and disrespecting our women. Members of the Coalition understand that most of Planned Parenthood’s business is located in urban areas where blacks and other poor reside, resulting in their largest revenue stream. The location of these clinics proves their agenda is depopulation. New York City is just one example of this attack; for every 1,000 black babies born alive, 1,489 are aborted. Members of the Black Prolife Coalition believe the ideological divide on abortion is wide between the Coalition and Senate Democrats.
