Black Pastors: If Black Lives Matter You Can’t Vote for Pro-Abortion Hillary Clinton

Two leading African-American pro-life pastors say black voters should rule out voting for pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Rev. Dr. Johnny Hunter says if black lives really matter then black voters will not vote for Hillary Clinton on the basis of her staunch support for unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy paid for at taxpayer expense. He says Roe vs. Wade, which Clinton strongly supports and wants to keep in place for decades more, has resulted in the abortions of 20 million African American babies.

“Blacks are clearly targeted by this practice,” Hunter says of abortion.

“In an age of political correctness and racial sensitivity how is it that Hillary Clinton proudly receives the Margaret Sanger award,” adds Rev Dr. Clenard Childress, another black pastor. He points out that Sanger stated, “colored people are like human weeds and need to be exterminated,”

“How can a person seeking the highest office in the land not be demanded to return that award back to Planned Parenthood? How can African Americans especially support such a candidate, its absurd?” Childress asks.

Childress is concerned that the ways in which abortion and the abortion industry target black women and children is often downplayed.

SIGN THE PLEDGE! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

Rev. Childress stated, “How can you have 20 million African Americans missing directly due to abortion and have no mention of it. It would be like the Jews not mentioning the Holocaust. African American’s don’t need another entity manipulating and contorting facts to fit their political agenda. Let the people know the truth.”

Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke previously asked Clinton to return an award from the Planned Parenthood abortion corporation named for its racist founder Margaret Sanger.

In fact, Clinton can boast the first-ever endorsement of a candidate in a presidential primary in the nearly 100-year existence of Planned Parenthood. In a statement, Clinton said she was “honored” by the endorsement.

But the presidential endorsement wasn’t the first time Planned Parenthood honored Clinton. In 2009, Clinton proudly accepted Planned Parenthood’s self-described “highest honor,” its coveted Sanger Award. She blushed and gushed that she was “in awe of” the racial eugenicist.

Margaret Sanger’s racist views have long been established. As writer Eric Metaxas notes:

Sanger wrote about the “deterioration in the human stock” and “the perpetuation of defectives, delinquents, and dependents.” Lest you have any doubt about what this woman of so-called “courage, … tenacity, [and] vision” meant, Sanger was committed to reducing the number of African Americans through contraception.

Quoth Sanger: “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Isn’t it amazing that a woman who said what Sanger did isn’t vilified more generally as a racist intent on eliminating African Americans?
