Washington, DC ( — Planned Parenthood’s endorsement this week of presidential candidate Barack Obama may be going over well with the minority of Americans who support unrestricted abortion. However, for leaders of the African-American community who are pro-life, it’s patently offensive.

Day Garner, the head of the National Black Pro-Life Union, says Obama has betrayed the black community by cozying up to Planned Parenthood.

“By kow-towing to the abortion industry Obama proves he is just another politician, as he purposely overlooks the fact that 63 percent of Planned Parenthood’s 860 clinics are in African-American communities," she told

"He purposely overlooks tapes of Planned Parenthood staff and executives, made public on YouTube, gladly accepting donations from clearly racist donors who specifically want their money targeted toward aborting black babies," she added.

Meanwhile, Pastor Stephen Broden of Fair Park Bible Fellowship Church in Dallas, says the Planned Parenthood endorsement "is another attempt on the part of Planned Parenthood to maintain its unfettered access to our community."

Broden, the president of the Black Alumni Association at Dallas Theological Seminary, tells, "Behind Planned Parenthood’s support of Obama is their desire to continue their scheme of dysgenics in our community and the destruction of black babies."

"Obama, unwittingly, or wittingly or for political expedience, is working to give this organization open access to destroy our future as a people in this country," he adds.

For Gardner, Planned Parenthood has a financial incentive for putting its stamp of approval on Obama instead of John McCain, who opposes abortions.

"Obama, if elected President, would no doubt be a huge ally to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the nation and who receives over $300 million a year from taxpayers," she explains. "The abortion giant’s funding would be safe and secure no doubt."

“What both Planned Parenthood and Obama don’t realize is that we do not have to kill our children to have fruitful, successful lives," Gardner concludes. "But it doesn’t matter. Even though blacks compromise only 13% of the population, they make up over 36% of all abortions done in this country."
