The Rev. Clenard Childress Jr. calls out abortion for what it is: a mass genocide of the most innocent.
Childress, a leading pro-life advocate in the Black community, discussed the hypocrisy of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in a July column, citing statistics about the disproportionately high number of abortions in the Black community.
Childress listed five “undeniable and inconvenient truths” about abortion, including the shocking fact that more than 20 million African American children have been aborted in the United States. That amounts to about 1,800 aborted babies in the Black community every day.
Abortions hurt every race and culture, but black Americans have a disproportionately high number of abortions compared to other racial groups. According to census data, African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population but have about 30 percent of the abortions.
Childress went on to discuss the irony of John Schnatter, the man behind Papa John’s pizza, being ousted for racist comments. Despite the NAACP’s intense scrutiny of individuals and groups like Schnatter, Childress noted the NAACP has glossed over one very important person: Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America.
“She was an avowed White Supremacist and was quoted as saying, “…colored people are human weeds and need to be exterminated… reckless breeders… spawning… human beings who never should have been born…” Margaret Sanger, “Pivot of Civilization.” Sanger, was in her time, the leading advocate of the eugenics movement, specifically of negative eugenics, which promoted the reduction of sexual reproduction and sterilization of people with undesired traits or economic conditions. She wrote, “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Margaret Sanger, “Women and the New Race” (Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923).”
Rev. Childress explained how Sanger guided Adolf Hitler in his eugenic implementation in the Holocaust, one of the worst crimes against humanity ever, and yet she is still lauded for her work in the United States.
The NAACP does not seem to truly advance minorities when it comes to the fundamental issue of life. Rather, the historic organization silences those who dare to point that out. In 2015, the NAACP lost a legal battle to Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation, a Black pro-life advocate who had written a column at LifeNews exposing the organization for its pro-abortion stance.
Some groups are attempting to address the abhorrent roots of the Planned Parenthood abortion chain. According to Breitbart, even a Planned Parenthood student group at the University of Florida hosted an event last March to discuss Sanger and the racist roots of her organization.
Even though some may acknowledge Sanger’s vicious, racist motives, her work is still rampant today. Her eugenic beliefs may be condemned, but her legacy is as present as ever today. So many children, especially those who are children of color, lose their lives to abortions every day. Childress’s words will continue to ring true, and people must take action to stop this black genocide that takes place in our very communities.
