The NAACP, once considered a champion of civil rights, has moved far from protecting blacks from the predatory hands of racists. Today, that once-great organization has become more dangerous to black women and their families than the Ku Klux Klan ever was. The KKK terrorized the black community, lynching 3,446 blacks over 86 years. The abortion industry has targeted and killed more than 22 million blacks in less than 50 years.
Yet, the NAACP has ignored these deaths, calling abortion a “human right.” In 2020, the largest abortion provider in the nation, Planned Parenthood, confessed that its founder, Margaret Sanger, was a racist — something it had denied for decades. Some of Planned Parenthood’s affiliates even confessed they are the very essence of what the NAACP used to fight against: white supremacy and systemic racism.
With 79% of its surgical facilities in black and Latino neighborhoods, Planned Parenthood has achieved its mission of obtaining a population of optimum size, as stated in its 2008 tax filing. This was especially true in 2020, when abortion clinics were deemed essential. Planned Parenthood performed a record-breaking 354,871 abortions. This mammoth number does not include all the abortions performed by other providers.
Why is the NAACP siding with those who kill black babies and their mothers? Because Texas has a law that allows abortionists to be sued for aborting babies after a heartbeat can be detected. The heartbeat is an indicator of life in every other medical setting, and when the heartbeat is detected, medical personal take immediate steps to render assistance. For decades, the abortion industry has denied the humanity of the child, describing infant life in the womb as a “clump of cells.” The Texas law and other “heartbeat” bills recognize the infant in the womb as a person needing equal protection.

The Texas law allows any citizen who believes the abortionist performed an abortion after the heartbeat is present to sue the provider. The NAACP calls these citizens vigilantes, suggesting they do not have the legal authority to carry out the provisions of the law. However, this law is the vehicle that empowers them to hold abortionists, many of whom have ignored or violated existing laws, accountable.
The NAACP seems to have forgotten the tortuous history blacks lived through when they were deemed property — not persons entitled to the equal protection and due process promised in the 14th Amendment. This same standard is being applied to babies in the womb today. They, too, have been deemed something less than persons entitled to 14th Amendment protection. The NAACP seems to have forgotten the strange fruit that Billie Holiday sang about: black men and women hanging from trees. Its memories seemingly do not include the blood, sweat, and tears paid by blacks fighting for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965. The NAACP seems to have forgotten the “I Am a Man” march in Memphis that ended with the death of Martin Luther King Jr. Ironically, it has chosen to side with the very people who are taking the lives of millions of blacks while calling their deaths a human right.
It is unconscionable that a cultural and political plantation has been created where the taking of innocent life is so readily available, broadly encouraged, and boldly promoted. This plantation allows coercion of women, substandard medical facilities, theft of government funds, and a host of other violations of federal and state laws. This plantation injures and maims women — many times taking their fertility. This plantation even allows the taking of lives of the women it claims to empower.
It is even more unconscionable that the once champions of black lives in America have joined the battle on the side of those inflicting the most harm on black women and their children.
