Truth knows no color. No one has a monopoly on it. Everyone has access to it. Frederick Douglass believed this, and risking life and limb, became the first black American journalist with the creation of the anti-slavery North Star newspaper.
Scandal. It’s not just a sleazy TV show. It’s real life. And, lately, it’s spreading like wildfire.
Abortion activists love their folklore. Women. Hangers. Millions of deaths. None of it’s true, but it sure sounds scary in a sound bite. Planned Parenthood’s own Medical Director, Dr. Mary Calderone, in a 1959 article decrying the lack of social acceptance of abortion declared: “Abortion is no longer a dangerous procedure…90% of all illegal abortions are presently being done by physicians.

Who would have imagined a world where the nation’s largest black civil rights groups would partner with the one organization that destroys innocent life for a profit?

History. It’s disposable. How often do we use it to bolster a cause and then quickly discard it when its inconvenient truths call that effort into question? March is Women’s History Month. Americans celebrate the courage and tenacity of those who’ve made the world a better place. We should take the opportunity to pause and intentionally look closer at the totality of these women’s lives. Understanding their motivation, what sustained their passion, and how such indelible marks along the human timeline have been made, is simply powerful.

The TooManyAborted.com initiative, entitled “Gone”, educates the public about how racial targeting results in the alarming number of abortions in the black community.
Today marks the birth of one of the most remarkable individuals in American history.

The Great Emancipator’s words and actions were the catalyst for millions to be able live out their God-given Purpose, eventually freed from the shackles of slavery and inexplicable human degradation.
