HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM DR. ALVEDA KING

Yes Sheriff Clark, I agree. My New Year’s Affirmation: Black Lives, All Lives Matter

Friends, this is the very last day of 2014. What a tumultuous yet victorious year it has been. What with Ferguson, Staten Island, Isis, Rumors of Wars, Untold Greed, Poverty and Lack. Oh my goodness! Yet all is not lost! As I declare this truth, and while I have some “New Year’s Resolutions,” I also have some “New Year’s Affirmations.”

First, I affirm that Jesus is truly Lord! For me that’s self explanatory.

141231 blog imageASecond, Black lives matter; all lives matter. In the midst of the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, the notorious Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest and most wealthy abortion provider, picked up the slogan, BLACK LIVES MATTER. The resounding outcry of outrage against their hypocrisy is still resonating. How can PPH help slaughter over 55 million babies legally, with nearly 1/3 of their victims being Black babies, and then proclaim that Black lives matter?

Yes, much attention has been given to this mantra this year. Most recently a bold affirmation from Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, an African American law official, told CNN: “When I hear these things – that Black lives matter, the only people who really believe that statement are American police officers who go into American ghettos every day to keep people from killing each other…. Look, the abortions? If Black lives – if they really mattered, that’s where the outrage would be that’s where we’d see protests….” He also tweeted to a New York Times reporter, “If only these faux protesters were asked by media about all the black on black killing or black babies aborted in US every year.”

Yes Sheriff Clark. Thank you for speaking truth to power!

141231 blog image3My friends and colleagues, Janet Morana and Kevin Burke, LSW, blogged about a recent article in Rolling Stone Magazine where Nicki Minaj’s shares that she had an abortion. It’s too bad she didn’t have some help that may have resulted in her having her baby because her baby’s life matters. You can read their blog HERE.

Friends, there is much work ahead of us as we put 2014 behind us. Let’s pray together and get ready!

By definition, an ambassador is “a person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity.” This definition settles the question some of us were debating about whether or not you are aware of what you are promoting when you speak for Planned Parenthood. It deeply saddens and, yes, angers us that you are representing, and actually promoting an organization whose mission is population control and whose goals are to specifically control the Black birth rate even if it results in genocide.

More disturbing is your willingness to ignore the many and varied examples of the devastation this organization has wreaked on your friends, sisters, cousins, aunties and nieces. You are signaling that you agree with the treatment Black women have received at the hands of Planned Parenthood personnel. You are signaling that you agree, for example:

• With the tortuous death Tonya Reaves experienced when she was left bleeding in a Chicago Planned Parenthood for more than five hours after the abortionist botched her abortion. Only after scrapping her uterus another three times and still failing to complete the abortion did they transport her to the nearest trauma center. (http://cbsloc.al/1oolaSc)

• With Planned Parenthood’s failing to report the rape of minors, thereby protecting pedophiles, as was the case in Colorado. A 13 year old who was impregnated by her stepfather, who had molested her since she was 6; was sent back home with him after he took her for an abortion and a birth control shot. They failed to act even though there were clear signs of abuse. (http://bit.ly/1qJfPIv)

• With Planned Parenthood operating substandard abortion centers that put women at risk as was found in Delaware. (http://6abc.cm/1BpHwLd)

• With Planned Parenthood changing its business model and now requiring all of their affiliates to do abortions which has made them the largest purveyor of abortion in America (http://bit.ly/1nJ1ecE)

• With the targeting of Black women as was demonstrated in the 2013 study published by Protecting Black Life (http://bit.ly/1pB0NDL). Seventy nine percent of their surgical facilities are located within a two mile walking radius of a Black or Latino neighborhood. This pattern is continuing as demonstrated by the recent opening of a new 17,000 square foot facility within a two mile walking radius of 5 mega Black churches and within 10 miles of two others in Dallas Texas.

History matters.. Abortions’ racist foundation has been effectively concealed from the beginning and many in the Black community do not realize the war against black family reproduction began in 1916 with the founding of Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control League.

However, as one of Planned Parenthood’s ambassadors, it must be concluded that you do know that by the late 1930s Sanger, in concert with Clarence Gamble (Proctor and Gamble), launched a specific project against the Black family – The Negro Project – that “… sought to bring about a major birth-rate reduction among American Negroes.” (http://bit.ly/1tduQlp) Since Planned Parenthood tells us on their website that Sanger’s early efforts remain the hallmark of their mission, we must conclude that you know and are willingly complicit in the ethnic cleansing that is inherent in their mission and evident by the reduction of the Black population in America.

So we are writing to ask you to cease and desist in promoting this organization that is bent on erasing the Black community. Alveda King (www.kingrulesbook.com) often reminds us that her uncle, Martin Luther King, Jr., warned us about the perils of infanticide. He said “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”. We invite you to join us in stopping the leading cause of death in the Black community. Speak out now while there is still time to impact and change the course of devastation that is silently destroying us from within.

Taking It To The Streets – Getting Planned Parenthood Out of Our Communities

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

I hope you enjoy this guest blog from my good friend and fellow National Black Prolife Coalition colleague, Catherine Davis.

Planned Parenthood booth at 26th Annual Black Family Reunion  in Cincinnati, OH

Planned Parenthood booth at 26th Annual Black Family Reunion in Cincinnati, OH

This weekend I was privileged to serve with Arnold Culbreath, Dean Nelson, Alveda King, and Ryan Bomberger in Cincinnati, Ohio at the 26th Annual Black Family Reunion that was held at Sawyer Point. A number of vendors, organizations and entertainers gathered to inform, educate, feed and entertain attendees. Protecting Black Life, Arnold’s organization, hosted a booth and we were able to interact with a number of Cincinnati Black Families, informing them of the genocidal impact abortion has had on the Black community. After settling in at the booth, we took time to visit one or two others including the both hosted by Planned Parenthood. Three beautiful, vibrant young ladies were there distributing the organizations’ materials. At first I was heartbroken. I was told this was the first time the booth was staffed by blacks. In previous years it had always been staff by white women. Seeing these beautiful young ladies reminded me of the steps Planned Parenthood has taken in their multi-year campaign to reach Black and other women of color. After quizzing the young women I realized the volunteers had little or no knowledge of Planned Parenthood’s continuing Negro Project launched in 1939 to control the Black birth rate. The paid staffer seemed to have been given a script which she faithfully tried to execute including telling us she would ask us to leave.

140819 blog imageBAlveda and Ryan both gave the women something to think about. Alveda spoke of her uncle Martin Luther King, Jr. and how she believes he would never have supported aborting Black babies. She respectfully requested they no longer use her uncle, his image, or his words in support the organization’s Negro Project. Ryan shared how he had been conceived in rape, and his mother chose to give him life rather than death. He celebrated her decision that allowed him to achieve the possibilities life has placed before him. A number of people came to collect their information, most unaware that women were dying in abortion centers around the country and that many abortionists do not operate their centers under reasonable standards of medical care. In fact, most did not know the doctors cannot get admitting privileges to local hospitals because they have such a poor record of treating women. For these women our information was eye opening to say the least.

Dear Mrs. Rosa Parks

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Alveda on the Rosa Parks busThis has been a very special week, visiting the Michigan State University Medical School and The Michigan Museum for Women and the Henry Ford Museum among other things. We also found time to see two powerful movies, God’s Not Dead and Heaven Is For Real.

A very powerful moment on the tour occurred while I was at the Henry Ford Museum, sitting in Rosa Park’s famous seat on the bus. As you can see in the photo, this moment was not just a reenactment, it transported me back and propelled me forward all at the same time.

I did meet Mrs. Parks during her lifetime, and I must say that I have never met a more gracious and powerful person. I didn’t ask her questions during our brief encounters because I was just in awe of being in her presence.

So now, I have a question that she’s not here to answer. Dear Mrs. Parks, you were such a valiant warrior for justice. People think your feet were tired, but you have explained that your soul was weary with the human injustice. If you were here on earth today, would you speak up for the little human babies being slaughtered in the wombs of their mothers? Would you speak up for the mothers who are also sometimes slaughtered by the chemical and surgical birth control methods that block their fertility and kill their babies?

Friends, Margaret Sanger and the “eugenics gang” misled so many people. Margaret Sanger founded the Birth Control League which became Planned Parenthood. Sanger and other eugenicists tried and still try to tantalize and seduce African American leaders with grants and awards. They promise to help our people while all the time they are planning to kill our people.

Alveda on the Rosa Parks bus resized

They offered my uncle MLK the Sanger “Maggie” award in 1966. (Part 1 & Part 2. He didn’t accept it, his wife Coretta did. Aunt Coretta, like Barbara Bush and Laura Bush, supported a woman’s right to choose to abort her baby. MLK was prolife. Daddy Bush and Pres. George W. are prolife.

I wonder if anyone every explained to Mrs. Parks that the women’s “Negro Project” was a program designed to sterilize Black women as a means to controlling the Negro population?

I refuse to sit on the back of the bus ever again. I know for sure that even as Mrs. Parks refused to move to the back of the bus, a front seat for Black women at the soon to be legalized abortion mills were already being prepared for our slaughter. Abortion and carcinogenic fertility blocking birth control procedures are deadly for mothers and our babies.

So, if you miss me at the back of the bus, come on over to real freedom. Defund Planned Parenthood, stop eugenics and genocide. Let freedom ring for all human beings, from conception until natural death.

Where is the Love? Rolling Stone, Planned Parenthood and Overzealous Pro-Life Camp Controversy Pours Salt on Old Wounds

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

140305 blog image

When Rolling Stone magazine published Lauren Rankin’s “The Seven Most Common Lies About Abortion”, what we discovered was a misstatement of the position of the reasonable voices of proponents of life and natural women’s health. Among the so called “lies” the article lists are “Abortion causes breast cancer,” “Most women regret having an abortion,” and “Abortion is psychologically damaging to women.”

If you read the article, you will discover that there is a lot of pain and frustration on both sides of the line. The pro-choice voices believe that they represent the reproductive rights of the women who go there to the abortion clinic to be rid of the lives in their wombs. The pro-life voices believe that they are there to protect the women and their babies. One thing that both sides get right; women need respect and protection; but from what? And where are the civil rights for the babies and even the fathers? Most importantly, where is the love?

Here is the truthful platform of pro-life combined with pro-women advocacy groups:

Many women regret abortions. I am one of the women who experienced abortion and live to regret it.

Abortion and carcinogenic birth control – more appropriately termed “fertility blockers” are linked to breast cancer.

In many cases, abortion has been found to be linked to cases of suicide, depression and other psychological disorders.

In many cases where physical and psychological issues are noted in post-abortive women, it is often also noted that no such issues were present in the lives of these mothers prior to their abortions.

Added to these facts are the truth that fathers also suffer damaging psychological effects after their children are aborted.

In her book RECALL ABORTION, Janet Morana uncovers the duplicitous agenda of the pro-abortion industry, debunking lies such as those told by Rolling Stone and Planned Parenthood.

SNMA spokesman Kevin Burke and Oil of Joy Ministries have documented case studies of links to abortion and incarceration.

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion is often behind many reports and studies such as this one by Rolling Stone.

What Planned Parenthood and their advocates refuse to admit is that abortion numbers in New York and Mississippi are upside down with more African American babies being aborted than born. In 2010 in Georgia, my home state, 53% of all abortions were on Black mothers and babies; with a distant 23% on Hispanic minorities, and 24% on Caucasian and “others.”

Quote No bus now abortion mill

Finally, let’s remember that the driving force behind the HHS mandate which seeks to force tax payers and the working class to fund fertility blockers and easy access to abortion is Planned Parenthood’s never satisfied lust for our money and our blood.

These lies of the abortion industry hide behind clever promises to end poverty and improve our quality of life. As Father Frank Pavone often asks: “How can killing the poor serve the poor?” He has been reminding us for years that “we are our brothers’ keepers.” I add that we are also our sisters’ and our daughters’ keepers. I don’t know about you, but my daughters and granddaughters; my sons and grandsons need good jobs and good education; not the pain and suffering that are often linked to abortion and carcinogenic birth control.

Let’s end the word games and face the facts. Abortion kills babies and hurts mothers and fathers. Stop the lies. Defund Planned Parenthood. Stop the HHS Mandate. Recall abortion. Let’s make love and life, not war on the wombs of women.

Crazy Valentine’s Day Pitch by PPH and Cecile Richards

Friday, February 14th, 2014

140214 Blog Image

An Open Letter to Cecile Richards

Really Cecile, are you truly promoting a romantic abortion theme for Valentine’s Day? You and your new sidekick Nancy Pelosi are really a pair. First, just before Valentine’s Day, Planned Parenthood announces that you will give Ms. Pelosi the PPH Margaret Sanger Award, and then you follow up with a Valentine’s Day twitter feed with a picture of you sporting a heart poster that reads #whatwomenneed for Valentine’s Day – safe + legal abortion.

Now you are using your bully pit to devalue Agape Love and Romantic Love, to promote abortion? When will you ever stop? Perhaps you don’t realize that women actually deserve love, respect and life affirming support rather than your fertility blocking abusive agenda that ends the life of innocent babies, while often maiming, if not killing, their mothers.

My friend Janet Morana has written an informative book, RECALL ABORTION that all of your supporters need to read. Abortion is bad business, and is a really bad product, and you want to gift the women of America and the world with abortion.

My, my, my Ms. Richards. You have duped the women of America and the world for far too long. You don’t love us at all. You love your terrible agenda. I wonder if there is any love in your heart at all, or if all of your soul is connected to the big checks that PPH keeps racking up in the name of abortion?

Somehow, I must pray for the heart to pray for you and your followers. So much harm is wrapped up in your poison candy box, which reminds me of the spindle prick that put Sleeping Beauty to sleep or the apple the wicked stepmother gave to Snow White that caused her to fall to sleep, too. You had millions and millions fooled for far too long, so over 55 million babies are dead since your tarnished victory in 1973.

Well Ma’am, the women of American and the world have been asleep for far too long; because too many fell for your legal abortion and carcinogenic contraception lies. Stop lying to women Cecile. Abortions hurt women and kill babies.

My abortion hurt me and killed my babies. I know the truth now, Planned Parenthood lied to me. Planned Parenthood lied to my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Planned Parenthood is lying today and so are you! Dear Ms. Richards: Women need love, dignity, support and respect – NOT ABORTIONS!

Women of the National Black Prolife Coalition Denounce Planned Parenthood’s Latest Propaganda Maneuver

Friday, December 20th, 2013

Once again my sisters and I of the NBPC are bringing you the latest on the evil deeds of Planned Parenthood. They don’t let up even at Christmas. Lord have mercy!

“These are the kind of people who smooth-talk themselves into the homes of unstable and needy women and take advantage of them; women who, depressed by their sinfulness, take up with every new religious fad that calls itself “truth.” They get exploited every time and never really learn… But nothing will come of these latest impostors. Everyone will see through them, just as people saw through that Egyptian hoax. (2 Timothy 3:6-9 MSG)

Christian Newswire Release

131220 blog image

Contact: Catherine Davis, 678-381-1058

ATLANTA, Dec. 19, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Women of the National Black Prolife Coalition (NBPC) believe Planned Parenthood is continuing its age old strategy of targeting the black community by enlisting members of the black elite to promote their organization. The Root’s article “How Black Women are Saving Planned Parenthood” is the most recent example of the propaganda machine they employ. The NBPC denounces this practice pointing to the hundreds if not thousands of women that have been hurt in Planned Parenthood abortion chambers and the millions of babies that have died as they have grown their business into the leading abortion provider in the nation.

“To this day I remain haunted by the death of Tonya Reaves, a vibrant young twenty four year old that Planned Parenthood in Chicago left bleeding for more than five hours after a failed abortion of her fifth month of pregnancy,” said Catherine Davis, Founder of the Restoration Project. “She did not have to die. But Planned Parenthood had so little regard for her life they refused to transport her 1.7 miles down the street where lifesaving help in one of the leading trauma centers was available.”

The NBPC believes this is because Planned Parenthood has an agenda of population control and the life of the mother is expendable as they strive to achieve “a U. S. population of stable size” (as revealed in their 2008 tax filing). “Instead of helping to eliminate poverty, these elitists seek to eliminate the poor. This race genocide must stop,” said Connie Eller of Missouri Blacks for Life. “Black women who support Planned Parenthood are participating in the evil elimination and denigration of other Black women and children,” she continued.

“Their model has not changed,” said Day Gardner of the National Black Prolife Union. “Since the days of Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood has been adept at ferreting out advocates who care more for money and power than people. The result is over 55,000,000 children slaughtered, and thousands of women injured, some unto death.”

“Planned Parenthood has a history of promoting the government’s eugenicist plan to reduce the black population by employing black women,” notes La Verne Tolbert, PhD, a former board member of Planned Parenthood. “In the early 1970s Faye Wattleton was the first black voice to promote abortion. She was always elegant on television as she debated Catholic clergy who wore their tab white collars — the perfect visual contrast Planned Parenthood needed as Faye championed black women to abort their babies.”

“Planned Parenthood’s callous use of black elitist women to smooth talk their way into the homes of vulnerable black women and take advantage of them is notorious. Rather than providing life affirming assistance, they sell them deadly contraceptives and abortion,” said Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach, Priests for Life.

“This racist genocide must stop.”

Teacher Under Siege Over Planned Parenthood Debacle

Monday, November 11th, 2013

131111 Blog Image1

Bill Diss has a passion for teaching young students. He has risked and sacrificed much of his life to make a difference in the lives of his students. Parents extol his efforts, youngsters cherish his role as a mentor in their lives. Yet school authorities are making a grandstand effort to tar and feather him. His teaching license is being challenged because he advises his students to make healthy choices which don’t include the agenda being forced upon students by Planned Parenthood and other agencies who promote “free sex” and similar agendas.

Mr. Diss and indeed all teachers who genuinely care about teaching and empowering students with the ability to think, learn and live long and healthy, and productive lives need our help. If you live in the area, please attend the November 14, hearing where charges are being brought against him. If not, please call or write the authorities to demand justice for Bill and his students and their families who appreciate him.

One student wrote: “Mr. Diss has done a lot for me and my family and there is no way that we could ever repay him. I believe that the world is in desperate need of good, honest people. If Mr. Diss gets his teaching license revoked, then that will only take another good source of help from the students.”

My friend Paul Rondeau, noted columnist and commentator writes in Washington Times:

“Bill Diss is an experienced, highly qualified and popular computer science teacher. On November 14, the Portland school district and Planned Parenthood will try to have him declared unfit to teach.

“Diss is the only teacher in Oregon to earn the distinction of being credentialed to teach computer science for college credit at the high school level. Diss is a highly qualified high school educator who has been teaching for more than a decade at a desperate public school that almost closed in 2010 — a school that serves a population which is 75 percent minority.”

Read the story HERE.

Paul goes on to point out that, “Diss earned special recognitions for his work with at-risk black students and for helping to stop gang violence in Portland parks. But, because he refused to allow Planned Parenthood into his classroom, school administrators branded him “unfit to teach” and intend to end his career with Portland Public Schools on November 14.

“Parents and students alike are thankful for his dedication. One parent (who holds an M.Ed.) wrote, ‘[My daughter] found a teacher that achieved tremendous balance between high expectations and accommodating individual needs.’”

“Another mother who says Diss is a gem wrote, ‘The highlight of [my son’s] day however is his math class with Mr. Diss. … It seems he goes to great lengths to make himself available for any student who needs additional help. … Mr. Diss cares enough about his students to have firm boundaries and tell them the truth, even when it hurts.’”

So, my question is this: Why are school authorities trying to destroy Mr. Diss? Why was Planned Parenthood allowed to go in and audit Mr. Diss’ classes?

Feedback to Paul’s article is very telling as a hearty repartee ensues from readers:

Reader A writes, “Mr. Diss brought his religion into the classroom. Mr. Diss’ religion belongs in his church.”

Reader B writes, “There’s a difference between you acting in accordance with your belief system, and you lecturing to a captive audience about it from a position of authority.”

Responding to Reader B, Reader C comments, “You mean like exactly what the PP reps were going to do…without parents’ knowledge? The PP people who make a profit by encouraging youngsters to engage in sex and then give them abortions when sex is not the carefree recreation they promote when things don’t quite ‘work out.’”

Reader B responds, “’[W]ere going to do’ So, we’re talking about something that didn’t happen?
‘profit by encouraging youngsters to engage in sex’ Do PP do that? Or is it our hormones that do that, and PP is just trying to facilitate information.”

Reader D then responds, “PP is trying to facilitate a market. Yes, choices that result only in ‘the choice’.

I was a teacher in a Georgia college for 19 years. I often faced persecution similar to that Bill Diss is currently experiencing. I was ordered to stop telling the students the truth. I reminded my opposition that they couldn’t pay me enough to deceive my students.

Please, let’s pray for Bill Diss, his students and their families, and indeed all educators who are being attacked for exercising their constitutional rights of freedom of speech while their adversaries are being paid by our tax dollars to distribute condoms, easy access to abortions, harmful birth control products and deceptive propaganda that will stunt the intellectual and moral development of the generations to come.

The Greatest Loss of Life Since 9-11?

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

130917 blog image

My assistant, Eugene Vigil, was listening to news reports this morning. As we were going through our daily brief, he remarked about the news coverage of the Navy Yard shooting in D.C. on Monday. I too had followed the story on television and on the front pages of the newspapers as I was walking through the airport. I’ve asked Eugene to join me in writing this blog today. We’d love to have some feedback from you on Facebook and Twitter.

Reporters are calling the DC Navy Yard shooting yesterday “the greatest loss of life in a single event in DC since 9-11.” An NBC report called it, “one of the deadliest single events ever in the nation’s capital”. I beg to differ.

Monday morning, September 16, Aaron Alexis, 34, of Fort Worth, Texas allegedly opened fire and killed 12 and injured 8 at the DC Navy Yard before he was killed.

Reports on the call for gun control are again flooding in. Every time there is gun violence, people call for gun control. And yes, there should be restrictions on easy access to owning guns. Yet it is going to take more than gun control; it will take heart control to stop the killings, not just an effort of gun control. We must change the hearts of the people who use the guns. Better said, we must pray that God changes the hearts in this nation.” Yes, Monday’s terror was the latest in sprees of violence, man’s inhumanity to man; a terrible incident. Any time life is lost, especially so senselessly, it is a tragedy. I know that those who lost loved ones are mourning and many in our nation are mourning with them and praying for them. We are praying for all the victims and for Alexis and their families.

People are correct to be upset and even outraged at any senseless killing as are we. But our outrage doesn’t stop with Alexis and those he killed and wounded. No, our outrage also extends to all the babies whose lives are being taken every day in DC from abortion. According to data from the Guttmacher Institute, in 2008 there were 4450 abortions in DC (most recent year available). That’s just over 12 dead babies every day, the same number of people killed by Alexis on Monday. Yet, we don’t hear the outcry for these lives. The NBC report stated that the victims ranged in age from 46 to 73. The babies that die from abortion are every bit as human and alive as those killed in the Navy Yard shooting except they are younger; much younger.

On Monday, September 16 at least 24 people lost their lives in DC that day; twelve at the hands of Aaron Alexis and twelve at the hands of abortionists. Yes, I’ll say that again, at least twelve babies that were not shot by Alexis also were killed in acts of abortion.

Yesterday, Tuesday, September 17 at least 12 more people lost their lives at the hands of abortionists. No outcry!

Today, Wednesday, September 18 at least 12 more will lose their lives . . . .

The senseless killing must end. Reporters have been covering the various opinions on how not to repeat senseless killings like those at the Navy Yard; opinions from gun control opponents to those that are encouraging tightening up security. Some suggest that Alexis just snapped and sometimes you can’t do anything to prevent some killings.

As President Obama said, “But if there’s even one thing we can do, if there’s just one life we can save, we’ve got an obligation to try.” Well yes, we must try. The question is will you join us in asking President Obama to stand up for the babies too? We are obligated to demand that the killing of babies by abortion cease. Babies should have civil rights and human rights too!

Killings like those at the Navy Yard may or may not be preventable, but the killing of the babies in the womb is definitely preventable (and we are not talking about harmful chemical and surgical birth control as alternatives either) and we have an obligation to respect the lives of all human persons regardless of their age, ethnicity, size or location.

With the call for Gun Control from those who think this is the best way to stop killings, we again must ask, “Where is Planned Parenthood Control?” And we must also demand a call for “Abortion Tools Control.”
