An excerpt of Dr. Alveda King’s open letter to the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC):
“Dear CBC, I am writing to you today because my heart is heavy over the deafening silence coming from you regarding a recent video that has gone viral exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting and selling aborted babies’ body parts.
“The National Black Prolife Coalition of which I am a founding member has addressed you before challenging your support of the abortion industry that targets Blacks; those you profess to be protecting and fighting for. You never responded.
“But I thought surely this current gruesome behavior on the part of PPH would be the catalyst for change. I thought to myself, ‘Surely, now the CBC will yank their support of an industry that is involved in the illegal harvesting and selling of body parts of aborted babies. ‘But yet we hear nothing. Your silence is [deafening].
“During her lifetime, in her own words, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger said:
“‘While the colored Negroes have great respect for white doctors, they can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table… They do not do this with white people and if we can train the Negro doctor at the clinic, he can go among them with enthusiasm and…knowledge, which…will have far-reaching results among the colored people…The minister’s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.’
“Yes, Sanger and her Federation targeted and sometimes paid Black leaders – doctors, preachers, lawyers, teachers – with grants and scholarships – to convince them to join her. Does this sound like love and compassion?
“Attention CBC (Congressional Black Caucus and Concerned Black clergy). As a post abortive mother, I know first hand the pain abortion can bring. There is no agape love in abortion and trafficking baby body parts. They are hateful and violent deeds.”
