They say bullying and threats caused them to take down a pro-life billboard in Manhattan.
The billboard showed a black girl along with the message, "The Most Dangerous Place For An African American Is In The Womb."
Dr. Alveda King, Dr Martin Luther King's daughter, said the sign is accurate and "should be posted in every city in the country."
Lamar Advertising, which owns the billboard, decided to take down the sign even though it was contracted, after people opposed to the message threatened people in the building next to the sign.
It should also be noted that Rev. Al Sharpton had planned a demonstration at the billboard within the week.
Dr. King says, "It was an outrageous act of censorship."
Indeed it is.
NARAL's vice president Mary Alice Carr said the billboard was, "Attacking women for choosing abortion while simultaneously destroying family planning."
Actually, those who opposed the message on the sign are attacking the truth because it doesn't support their devalued and perverted view of life. And they are imposing censorship, while claiming to champion "choice."
So-called "family planning" is more important than truth or life.
The message on the sign is true.
The New York City Department of Health, in their most recent report (2009), revealed an abortion rate of 41% of all pregnancies in the city, with 59.8% of those involving African American women.
Margaret Sanger, eugenicist and founder of Planned Parenthood, would be proud.
There is a message to kids in this episode as well.
If it advances abortion, it's okay to bully and threaten and kill the truth. This, while the kids are being programmed in the classroom, often with materials distributed through Planned Parenthood, not to bully or threaten.
No wonder too many kids are confused and conflicted---threaten and bully people on certain issues and you are out of school and maybe arrested; if you bully or threaten people regarding advancing abortion, it's okay.
Shouldn't bullying and threatening always be wrong?
"Choice" is a one way street.
Dr. King says the sign and the truth that it reveals, "Should provoke outrage in the African American community---not because it's racist, but because of the truth it reveals; the truth that is being kept from the African American community."
King said, "Black people in New York and all over the country should be outraged at the numbers of black babies we lose every single day to abortion."
She said, "An astonishing 60% of African American pregnancies in the five boroughs of New York City end in abortion."
Dr. King says, "That's unfathomable."
Indeed it is.
This episode once again reveals the "face of evil" for what it is. The abortion industry presents itself as an angel of light---claiming to champion "women's reproductive health care" and "family planning" while it seeks and destroys life itself, even while it is still in the womb. And the "face of evil" disproportionately targets the poor and the minorities. And people threaten and bully and lie in defense of it. And taxpayers fund it.
Yes, Dr. King, it is unfathomable.
May God give us the strength to resist evil until it "flees from us."
And may we never forget, "You shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free."
