I appreciate responses from Spokesman readers regarding the truths being provided in my column. The documentation is irrefutable. I challenge anyone to disprove the content of my column by focusing on other mentions instead of Ms. Sanger. I ask anyone to disprove other mentions in my column such as that Blacks make up 12 percent of the population but 35 percent of abortions in America.
Disprove my suggestion that Ms. Sanger was friendly with the KKK and other racist groups. Disprove my opinion that without abortions the Black population would now number 41 million, and it is this fact — not Voter I.D. — which is a threat to the Black community.
Prove me wrong that in 1993 a Howard University study showed that African American women over age 50 were 4.7 times more likely to get breast cancer if they had any abortions compared to women who had not had any abortions. I care about my people, our unborn babies, and the fact that if this evilness continues by 2040, Black America will reach a population number that the KKK would party over.
Here are comments from Rev. Brian Walker, who is program director of Pro-Life Action Ministries and cofounder of Everlasting Light Ministries:
The pot of collards in the room
“After a day at work you’re finally home. Your spouse has a pot of collards cooking. Just the right mix of smoked meat, a little vinegar, and of course that secret ingredient. You’re ready to dig in.
“‘My, those greens smell good. I can’t wait!’
“‘You know, the greens that have been cookin’ for hours!’
“‘I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t see any, and I don’t smell any!”
“You walk away wondering if your spouse has lost his or her mind or is in deep denial.
“The pot of abortion in our community has been simmering for some time. Its aroma fills our communities and is ignored and denied: For every 100 live births in the MN African American population, 41 were aborted.
“Since 1973 (Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton), 35 percent of the abortions in the United States are performed on African American women, while they represent only 13 percent of the female population of the country. Since 1973, the African American population has been reduced by approximately 14 million.
“Abortion is a public health issue, an economic issue, a cultural issue, and as a pastor I definitely see it as a spiritual issue with dire consequences. Women, men and minor girls are left in its wake to fend for themselves. It’s real and in the room. Brothers and sisters we need to talk.”
Black pastors must address abortion in Black community. Pastors must use their pulpits to address the murder of Black babies and assisting Black women deciding on abortion in the Black community. Pro-life pastors must stand with God and not have fear or feel guilty to take the lead by making a silent issue a loud issue of discourse. We see Black pastors in Ohio and other areas taking on this issue, but like always, Minnesotans are last.
We need to organize a pro-life conference as other Black pastors have done in other areas called “Blacks Against Abortions.” The name “Blacks Against Abortions” is a direct threat to Planned Parenthood. Tell me that murdering our kids at an alarming rate is not at issue for discourse.
Pastors, there must be a judgment before God for this silence. Black pastors must play some role in opening this conversation, because abortion is a direct attack on Black women and the Black family. We can go all over this country such as in Ohio and see 37 percent of the 28,123 abortions performed. Black pastors are still influential in our community, and I am asking you to be heard on this issue within my column if needed, because abortion is a moral issue, not a political issue.
Pastors, the work of the body of Christ is being in the Black family with respect to abortions. We can do more, because while legal, abortions are not lawful in the Spirit of God.
Planned Parenthood targeting Black women
Fox News reported that Planned Parenthood was involved in raising money targeting abortion of Black babies. Some of the recorded conversation is as follows.
Donor: ”I really face trouble with affirmative action. I don’t want my kids to be disadvantaged…”
Planned Parenthood representative: ”Yeah.”
Donor: ”… against Blacks in college. The less Black kids out there the better.”
Planned Parenthood representative: ”Yeah, yeah, it’s a strange time to be sure.”

Abortion is a silent killer in the Black community. We have the highest abortion compared to surrounding counties in Minnesota. We have to have ongoing serious discourse on this issue, and I’ll continue to educate readers within my next three columns on this subject. In the interim, to attend our focus groups on this subject, call 651-917-1720.
