Anytime journalists feel the need to reinforce unexamined Planned Parenthood statements, they pull the Guttmacher card. The Guttmacher Institute, founded by former Planned Parenthood President and former Vice President of the American Eugenics Society, Alan F. Guttmacher, is continually lavished with misleading credentials by mainstream media.
There are some things in life that are just painfully oxymoronic. Political correctness. Government transparency. NPR fairness. Bureaucratic efficiencies. And one of the examples most disturbing to me: “pro-choice” adoption agencies.
Adoption is a powerful and emotionally potent act, for the birth mother and the prospective parents. The act of relinquishing a child to someone else and to take in a child, who is not biologically related, is an incredible act of love and sacrifice.
On July 18th, NPR’s Michel Martin invited Reverend Carlton Veazey and me to debate the issue of abortion in the black community on “Tell Me More”. I’m beginning to believe a name revision is in order: “Tell Me More Lies.”
Last week’s NPR interview on “Tell Me More” really should be called “Tell Me Less”. Their heavy editing of only The Radiance Foundation’s perspective, while preserving every word spoken by Reverend Carlton Veazey,revealed NPR’s typical liberal bias and uninformed defense of Planned Parenthood. The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice CEO’s closing remarks (nearly two minutes versus mine which were cut down to 15 seconds) were just a continuation of pro-abortion histrionics by the historically challenged.
Pro-abortion groups in Oakland, California, just can’t seem to accept that they've failed. Despite shamefully biased and blatantly dishonest press from local TV news (CBS-5 and ABC-7) and area newspapers (Oakland Tribune and San Francisco Chronicle) none of their absurd cries of racism could remove the “Black & Beautiful: TooManyAborted.com” billboards.
California may be called the Golden State, but all that glitters isn't gold! Sometimes, it’s just the sheen from a highly polished load of lies marketed as urgently needed legislation.
Purpose is impossible without freedom. As one who was adopted and an adoptive father, I know the beauty of possibility and the passion with which people of every race defend human life in all of its stages.
