The proposed resolution came in response to the NAACP’s recent endorsement of abortion rights.
Grier also is a member of Life Education And Resource Network, or LEARN, a pro-life African-American group which charged the NAACP with censorship for barring the resolution.
"Each day 1,452 Afro-American women are victimized by the abortion industry — 81 percent of those women register some type of psychological complaint, said Rev. Clenard H. Childress, Jr., director of LEARN. "The NAACP’s refusal to allow this resolution is nothing less than censorship. The present leadership is charting a course without a moral compass."
Childress said the NAACP has "made decisions without consensus or caucus."
…African-American women make up 13.7 percent of the U.S. population of women of childbearing age, yet the abortion rate among black women is three times higher than of white women, the group says. For every five African-American women that get pregnant, three will abort.
This is one reason why I am glad that President Bush will not speak at the NAACP convention. It is hard to figure out why the NAACP are such pro-abortion zealots. It would seem to me that if some of your ancestors were once declared property and being only 3/5 human that they might be sensitive to the plight of the unborn where the same thing has happened. That they would keep far away from a group like Planned Parenthood which was founded by the racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger. Yet the opposite is true. If you place more abortion clinics in neighborhoods mainly inhabited by poor blacks you are doing a service to the community, not trying to wipe out "human weeds" as Margaret Sanger put it. The Dred Scott decision and Roe v. Wade are but two legal peas in a pod where the rights of a whole group of people are given to someone else’s will. Master/Slave or Mother/Child you are only a person if the one above you deems that you are. Some slaves were freed from the plantation and allowed to live elsewhere and some mothers allow their child to live apart from the placenta. If a slave master killed their slave that was their right under law. If a mother kills her child that is her right under law.
As I once quipped with a slogan for Planned Parenthood, "Keeping Minorities – Minorities." And maybe the Supreme Court’s slogan should be "Dehumanizing people for over two hundred years."
