Not only are legacies left and slaves sold in this way to build churches, but the right is openly defended by the church. In 1836 the great Methodist Church in America, holding through ministers. and elders, and members, in their own church 250,000 slaves, said in their general conference in Cincinnati that they had no right, no wish, no intention to interfere with the relation of master and slave as it existed in the slave states of the American union. - Frederick Douglas speaking on Slavery and Religion, 1846
FROM FRC.ORG - Racism Alive and Well at Planned Parenthood
A shocking set of recordings was released this week that could prove disastrous for Planned Parenthood's ties with the African-American community. Lila Rose, a pro-life student and reporter at UCLA, launched an undercover investigation aimed at exposing the racism of the nation's largest abortion merchant. With the help of an actor, she contacted Planned Parenthood clinics in seven states, inquiring if they would be willing to accept a donation earmarked for the abortion of black babies. The results were jaw-dropping.
Rose was appalled to discover that every last clinic agreed. Not one employee objected or questioned the request, even when the actor insisted that the purpose was to "lower the number of black people" in America. When the caller phoned an Ohio branch, he was told that Planned Parenthood "will accept the money for whatever reason." Read the outrageous transcript from the Idaho clinic, which is also available with Rose's other recordings in a montage at http://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i
Yes, Margaret Sanger was a racist. Doesn't mean that abortion is wrong to me because she advocated for it. Would be like calling Christian's racist, since they perpetuated and OVERTLY approved of slavery in this country. History does not forgive, but we can. Especially when we try and fight for what's right in this world...having the right to choose to have a child is something right in this world, especially with the prevalence of rape and sexual assault in this country!
Which is why as a Bruin, an African American, and a Woman, I DENOUNCE Lila Rose. Ms. Rose represents a continuation in a long line of lying, cheating conservative wackos from UCLA. Following in the steps of the RACIST, LYING Andrew Jones and THEIVING Sheldon Ross, Lila should feel quite welcome to the club! Face the music, for illegally taping others without their consent. Face the music for creative editing, entrapment and misleading volunteers who are just there to help! Funny how O'Reilly's even supporting illegal actions such as this these days...how far are we away from breaking and entering? Or is that allowed now too?
What is to be thought of a nation boasting of its liberty, boasting of its humanity, boasting of its Christianity, boasting of its love of justice and purity, and yet having within its own borders three millions of persons denied by law the right of marriage?—what must be the condition of that people? - Frederick Douglas speaking on Slavery and Religion, 1846
