Abortion Providers Target Black Community 

 

 

A new report documents what the pro-life community has long believed:  Planned Parenthood concentrates its abortion network on African-American and Hispanic communities.    

 

Life Dynamics has released a study entitled "Racial Targeting and Population Control."  The researchers mapped the location of every Planned Parenthood facility and examined the racial demographics of each of those zip codes.

 

The group identified 116 zip codes across the country with more than one Planned Parenthood facility.  84 of those zip codes were disproportionately black or Hispanic in their racial composition.  

 

The report found that there was not a single state in the union without an abortion center located in zip codes with a higher percentages of blacks and Hispanics than the state's overall percentage.

 

"Not only is this racial targeting widespread, but its scale is often enormous,"  the researchers write.  "42 states had Planned Parenthood facilities located in zip codes where the black and/or Hispanic population exceeds 200% of the state's overall percentage.  More telling is that these percentages routinely go far beyond even this level."

 

Mark Crutcher, President of Life Dynamics, says the data speaks for itself.  "The numbers make it clear that the African-American and Hispanic communities have been targeted and that this did not happen coincidentally or unintentionally."

 

While African Americans comprise approximately 13% of the population in the United States, it is estimated that 37% of all children aborted each year are of African-American descent.  

 

Crutcher says the Planned Parenthood strategy is consistent with the racist views of its founder Margaret Sanger.  "The location of the abortion centers is the modern equivalent of the population control policies against minorities that Planned Parenthood has supported since Margaret Sanger founded it."   

 

Life Dynamics has produced a groundbreaking documentary, Maafa21,  detailing the history of how the eugenics movement has targeted the black community in America.   The word "maafa" means "African holocaust."  You can watch the trailer for this documentary at this link:

Atheist Group: Gideons are "Predators"


 

One of the nation's leading atheist organizations is demanding that a Mississippi School District prohibit the distribution of Bibles on school premises.

 

The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) is calling on the DeSoto County School District to stop the Gideons from offering Bibles to fifth-grade students at two elementary schools.

 

Annie Gaylor, President of FFRF, says that the DeSoto County Schools are "placing a stamp of approval on the religious messages contained in the Bible" by permitting the Gideons to appear on school campuses.

 

"We want to protect small children from religious predators," says Annie Gaylor, President of the Freedom from Religion Foundation.  "We try so hard to teach our children not to take gifts from strangers. "   

 

DeSoto County school officials are reviewing the matter.  Federal courts have ruled that schools cannot discriminate against religious groups in the distribution of materials before or after school so long as they allow secular groups to do so.

 

DeSoto County School administrators are fresh from another showdown with the Freedom from Religion Foundation.  The school district decided to stop allowing prayers over the public address system before football games when FFRF challenged the practice.

 

Parents responded by praying the Lord's Prayer in unison at the beginning of this season's first football game.  The quarterbacks of both teams also led their squads in prayer at midfield following the game.  

 

DeSoto County Schools Superintendent Milton Kuykendall said the controversy was more about money than about prayer.  "This organization out of Wisconsin doesn't really care if we have prayer in our schools.  They see an opportunity to accuse us of breaking the law and therefore give them a chance to sue and take millions of our funds."

 

Gaylor has called on Superintendent Kuykendall to retract his statement and apologize to FFRF.  Kuykendall has stood behind his remarks.  

 

 

 

ACLU Sues Missouri School District Over Website Filters

A central Missouri school district is the target of a campaign by the American Civil Liberties Union to grant public school students access to pornographic websites.  The ACLU has filed suit against the Camdenton R-III School District demanding that the district remove Internet filters blocking access to sexually explicit websites.

The ACLU lawsuit is part of a nationwide campaign called "Don't Filter Me."  It is a project of the ACLU's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Project.  The ACLU contends that school districts are improperly censoring student access to information from websites promoting the supposed virtues of the homosexual lifestyle.

However, the ACLU is insisting that school districts completely disable filters on entire categories of content such as "homosexuality," "sexuality," and "LGBT," which would provide unlimited access to thousands of sexually explicit websites.

"The ACLU cannot mask its attempts to turn school computers into porn portals for children by expressing a supposed concern for censorship," says Jeremy Tedesco, legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund.  "Parents expect schools to be places where their children learn--not places where they access pornography."

The Alliance Defense Fund has sent letters to the Camdenton School District and seven other school districts targeted by the ACLU in Texas, California, Arkansas, Virginia, New Jersey, and Georgia.  The letter points out that "a school district's decisions regarding what web content to make available to students are curricular decisions, and that case law is clear that school districts have broad authority over curricular matters."

"The ACLU's 'Don't Filter Me Initiative' would be better named the 'Public School Porn Initiative,' says David Cortman, Senior Counsel for ADF.   "The ACLU is pushing its radical sexual agenda for children by intimidating school districts with a long string of scare tactics disguised as a concern over censorship.  School districts shouldn't be bullied into exposing students to sexually explicit materials.  Our children come first."

Camdenton school officials say they use the same process to review controversial websites that they do when a textbook or library book is challenged.  "We take a look at it, and our track record has been that we have opened those websites," says Tom Mickes, attorney for the Camdenton R-III district, which is located in the Lake of the Ozarks region.

Yet Mickes says after reviewing the ACLU's claims, the district decided to keep its "sexuality" filters in place to protect students from inappropriate materials.  "No offense to the Easterners," Mickes says, "but we want to run our school district based on what our citizens and kids in Missouri need, not what somebody in New York wants."

The ACLU campaign is part of a continuing crusade by homosexual activists to force local school districts to affirm and promote homosexuality as a morally acceptable and admirable lifestyle.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control, at the behest of the militantly pro-homosexual Obama administration, recently announced a new "gay rights" initiative in American schools.

The CDC's Department of Adolescent and Sexual Health has awarded a five-year renewable grant to GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network.  GLSEN seeks to establish clubs in public schools to advocate for the normalization of homosexuality.    GLSEN says the goal of its federal grant project is to reach 4 million students and nearly 15,000 school personnel with its message, and increase the number of schools that establish so-called "safe spaces" for homosexual students.

Candi Cushman, education analyst with Focus on the Family, says that the GLSEN grant is an example of a one-sided "diversity" campaign being propagated in the nation's public schools.  "While we can all agree that every single child--including those who identify as gay and lesbian--should be protected from harm, too often these programs go way beyond bullying prevention into flat out indoctrination."

The State of California recently enacted a law requiring that all public school curricula (beginning in kindergarten) positively portray "lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender" individuals and organizations in American history.  Randy Thomasson, president of Save California, says the new law will result in the "sexual brainwashing" of children.  "This revisionist history will make more children believe the lie that homosexuality is biological, which it isn't, and healthy, which it is not."  California parents are not allowed to exempt their children from "educational" programs or classroom activities that glorify homosexuality.

The ACLU lawsuit against the Camdenton School District was filed on behalf of the groups Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFFLG), Dignity, Inc., Campus Pride, and the Matthew Shepard Foundation.  The Alliance Defense Fund is filing a friend-of-the court brief in the case, and the Missouri Family Policy Council is participating in that brief.

Focus on the Family maintains an impressive website on the subject of homosexual advocacy in the schools which is called TrueTolerance.org.  It is an excellent resource for parents concerned about this issue who want to address their concerns with principals and school administrators in an educated and Christ-like fashion.  We encourage you to make your local school superintendent and school board members aware of it.  You can check out the site by using this link:
