Barack Obama continues to struggle to explain his pastor’s wild assertion that our government was responsible for “inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color.”
Meanwhile, a coalition of African-American pastors held a press conference in Washington D.C. yesterday to identify an organization they view as engaging in a real genocide against blacks — The Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
The pastors identified Planned Parenthood’s tendency to locate abortion clinics in predominantly black communities, noting that black women are nearly 5 times as likely as non-blacks to have an abortion. They also noted Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s overtly racist desire to eradicate minorities and the “unfit” through birth control and abortion.
Read the story. The press conference was prompted by recent undercover investigations in which Planned Parenthood fundraisers agreed to accept donations from those with clearly racist intent — desiring to provide support only for abortions of black children.
While he’s distancing himself from Pastor Wright, Barack Obama may want to reconsider his strong support for Planned Parenthood.
