Congressional Black Caucus Upset By Pro-Life Black Americans

What do you do when you can’t counter the truth? Lie some more. This is the unoriginal strategy presented by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and Planned Parenthood-funded SisterSong in an effort to thwart the recent impact of black prolifers.

Despite being funded millions of dollars, abortion groups can’t seem to combat public awareness campaigns (namely our initiative) that expose the disparate impact of abortion in the black community. Jill Stanek released a report on the recent Congressional Caucus briefing infiltrated by a handful of prolife advocates, including friend and colleague Day Gardner, of the National Black Prolife Union.

In a conference call immediately following that briefing, Day expressed her astonishment with how much these pro-abortion activists were in agreement with our numbers. They know our statistics are solid. They know black babies are being killed at exponentially higher rates but don’t care. And they hate our billboards.

So what do they do with the staggering truth that abortion occurs up to 5.8 times more in the black community than in the majority population? How do they spin the false narrative that the black community “lacks access” to abortion and contraception? Redirect and redefine. While the CDC reveals that abortion is the number one killer in the black community (obviously denoting plenty of “access”), taking more lives than all other causes of death combined, the CBC and SisterSong willfully celebrate that horrendous health outcome disparity as “Reproductive Freedom”. While millions of people’s lives are destroyed, both physically and emotionally by abortion, these activists convince themselves that using euphemisms like “Reproductive Justice” mask the brutal reality. We, however, focus on Redemptive Justice that illuminates truth in order to bring healing and true freedom.

The abortion industry celebrates captivity, a false sense of liberty that wallows in self- and community destruction.  This industry is extremely well funded, not just by the blood money that annually kills over 1.2 million innocent human lives but also by population control organizations that have seemingly bottomless bank accounts. The Ford Foundation (the same anti-Semitic organization that funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to Sanger and other eugenicists’ efforts) with over $10 billion in assets issues over $460 million in annual grants to rabidly pro-abortion and pro-population growth activist groups. SisterSong is one of those funded groups, led by Loretta Ross; its inception was made possible by initial funding from the far-left foundation.

Bizarrely railing against pro-lifers as racists and today’s eugenicists, Ross’ SisterSong established the “Trust Black Women Partnership”, a nationwide collective of minority “pro-choice” groups. Proud propagandists, they’re willing to ignore the epidemic of abortion, its perpetuation of poverty and the crisis of 72.3% fatherlessness in the black community. You can see the inanity of their rhetoric as evidenced in the Georgia State University protest that failed in its attempt to silence my presentation on abortion last fall. Apparently, one should only trust some black women. Ironically, not a single black women serves on the Ford Foundation’s Board of Directors—they apparently didn’t get SisterSong’s memo.

Following the debut of The Radiance Foundation’s “Black Children Are An Endangered Species” billboard campaign, SisterSong received a $300,000 grant from the Ford Foundation.  Ross, whose duplicity rivals that of Margaret Sanger, frequently acknowledges eugenics and population control (see embedded video) yet fails to place the blame on the obvious perpetrator of these destructive and racist efforts.

Funding can cause all kinds of deliberate blindness. Planned Parenthood, SisterSong, Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice, Black Women for Reproductive Justice, the NAACP, and the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, all heavily funded by the Ford Foundation, have all denounced black prolife movement and The Radiance Foundation in particular. From attempting to crush First Amendment speech (and failing) to demonizing us in the media to printing blatant libel (pg. 11, “Collective Voices”), they will not silence us. They’ve held numerous national conferences, including the recent Congressional Caucus briefing, to re-strategize lies, to revise history, and to present a perverted sense of “justice” and “freedom” while true civil rights champions, who value all life born and unborn, continue to fight regardless of the odds.



Even though we’ve been denounced by pro-abortion zealots and even ignored by some in the mainstream prolife movement, we are having a profound effect.  Our history is accurate. Our statistics are irrefutable. Our science is unquestionable. Our passion to save beautiful possibility—relentless.

The abortion industry, namely Planned Parenthood, is relying on casting abortion as a civil right and any opposition to it they demean as a “racist” attack. Well, civil rights are for all, including the unborn. Our Constitution was enacted, according to its preamble, to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.” We may not have the backing of a multi-billion dollar organization, but like David who took out Goliath, we have a much stronger Power on our side that can take down any giant, any day, no matter the poll, no matter the political climate. Through faith, perseverance and the embrace of the Truth, Redemptive Justice has a way of triumphing.
