*Warning: Graphic images and mild profanity contained in the video below
Thanks to Chuck Suter for producing the video above and showing us what it is like being a pro-lifer at a recent civil rights rally.
While roughly 7000 were marching, I was at home watching a livestream of the event. Reverend William Barber (President of the NC NAACP) made a comment during his speech that “No evil is ever necessary. Evil is a choice.”
The evil choice that came to my mind was the one portrayed on the graphic posters of aborted fetuses. My friends were holding up the signs for marchers to see as they walked by. Attendees were asked if the theme of the march, justice for all, included justice for the unborn.
Listening to Mr. Barber’s speech, I kept asking Why does the NAACP support abortion? Do they really support the principles and the best interest of the people they claim to represent?
Brooke McGowan, Project Director for the Carolinas Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, reported that the majority of African American marchers that they met were pro-life. One lady was shocked when she was informed of the high rate of abortions of blacks.
The figures are staggering. Ryan Bomberger reports: Black babies are aborted 6 times more frequently (in NYC) than white babies: 1,448 are aborted for every 1,000 that are born alive as compared to 244 white babies aborted for every 1,000 born alive. Is this why the NAACP is suing Ryan Bomberger? Are they trying to sweep these statistics under the rug?
Many times during Barber’s speech at the rally, I heard references to policies that he considered matters of life and death. Why was this horrific black genocide never mentioned?
My heart was heavy after watching Barber’s speech. How could anyone be willing to ignore such evil? Is there any hope in the midst of this great darkness?
I watched the video above and was encouraged by an interview with a young girl who attended the march. Her decision to be pro-life was solidified after seeing the graphic images of abortion.
Some may express their disgust at these horrifying images. I like Brooke McGowan’s response. “If it upsets you so much, why don’t you get involved in doing something to stop this barbaric procedure?”
I am grateful for groups like The Center For Bioethical Reform. Their volunteers are willing to speak the truth of what “choice” really means – even at the risk of being persecuted. I pray that many will be willing to join them in their mission of “Winning hearts, changing minds, saving lives”.
“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:
“Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?”
Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” ~ Isaiah 6:8
