A New Genocide Rages

GOP's Steele, other leading blacks urged to act
By Rev. Stephen Broden Thursday, July 23, 2009
The Washington Times

A scourge of epic proportions is ravaging the black community. This pestilence is the No. 1 killer of blacks, exceeding all other causes of death combined, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, violent crimes and HIV/AIDS. It is called abortion, or "womb lynching" by those of us who know the motives of its financiers, and it claims 50 percent of black offspring each year, about 700,000 children. An estimated 25 percent of blacks are "missing" because they did not survive pregnancy. The most dangerous place for a black child to be is in his or her mother's womb. The black community is being incrementally snuffed out through abortion.

More blacks die in one week through womb lynching (more than 8,400) than were killed in 100 years of post-Civil War lynchings in America (an estimated 3,457). This is a genocide, a holocaust, a "Maafa," that is eliminating our children and our future.

Where in the black community is the outrage? Where are our leaders? Unfortunately, far too many of the community and political leaders are complicit through their silence, perhaps because they benefit financially by supporting the multibillion-dollar abortion industry. It is estimated that since 1973, abortionists have profited by about $4 billion from the abortion of black babies, and this means abortionists have the means to lavishly support politicians who do their bidding.

DESPITE ATTACKS, A.L.L. CALLS ON CATHOLIC ORGANIZATIONS TO CONDEMN ‘OBAMACARE’

DESPITE ATTACKS, A.L.L. CALLS ON CATHOLIC ORGANIZATIONS TO CONDEMN ‘OBAMACARE’

Washington, DC (03 August 2009) – American Life League president Judie Brown called on three of the top Catholic charitable organizations to condemn the Obama healthcare plan in the wake of an emerging scandal.

Catholic Charities USA, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and the Catholic Health Association are urging their members to support “healthcare reform now,” i.e. current legislation that includes tax-subsidized abortion and rationed care for the sick and elderly.

ALL was alerted to the scandal when supporters passed along an action alert issued jointly by Catholic Charities and the De Paul Society, in which they tell members and supporters,

[W]e must maintain momentum for health care reform efforts with calls and emails supporting health care reform immediately. The groups that do not support health reform have been blanketing House members in opposition to any reform. Your members of Congress need to hear from you that you support health care reform, and that the system needs to be reformed now.

The Catholic Health Association produced a video which begins with a clip of President Obama, the most pro-abortion president in history, rallying Congress to support his healthcare plan. The De Paul Society inserted the video in its web site.

After American Life League issued a statement condemning this move, Catholic Charities USA described “online media reports” as “inaccurate,” ”disingenuous” and “politically motivated.”

“We reported, verbatim, the statements these organizations sent their members,” Brown responded. “These groups are apparently attempting to work out a backroom deal with the Obama administration. Their primary concern is universal health care, while the preborn and the elderly are left behind as collateral damage. As institutions rooted in Catholic social teaching, these groups should be at the forefront of the fight against the injustice of rationed care for the poorest of the poor, of tax-subsidized abortion and contraception, and of disregard for the health of the sick and elderly.”

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.
