Liberty Alerts, Liberty Counsel
Houston, TX – Mathew Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, is joining with other national leaders on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to protest Planned Parenthood’s creation of the largest abortion clinic in America and the racist roots of the nation’s largest abortion provider. The event will begin January 18, 9:30 a.m., at 1949 Cullen Boulevard in Houston. The abortion clinic is a six-story high, 78,000-square-foot monstrosity set in the midst of four communities, of which 80% are minorities. Formerly a bank, the abortion clinic will be dedicated for late-term abortions and is scheduled to open in April.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, said: “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.” (Sanger’s letter to Clarence J. Gamble, 1939, December). In Pivot of Civilization, Sanger referred to immigrants and Roman Catholics as reckless breeders: “[They’re] an unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.” (Sanger, p.187). In Women and the New Race, Sanger wrote, “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” (Sanger, p. 63). In her publication, Birth Control Review, Sanger advocated creating farms to segregate “unfit” people to “safeguard” citizens from “heredity taints.”
Lou Engle of The Call to Conscience is the organizer of the event. Other nationwide leaders who will be present include Ken Blackwell of Conservative Action Project, Tony Perkins of Family Research Council, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Bishop Harry Jackson of High Impact Leadership Coalition, Star Parker of the Coalition for Urban Renewal & Education, Pastor Stephen Broden of Fair Park Bible Fellowship, Dr. Richard Land of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director.
Staver commented: “The history of Planned Parenthood is repulsive. The genocide agenda of Margaret Sanger continues today through Planned Parenthood. On the memorial day of Martin Luther King Jr., we will gather to stand for life. African American and Hispanic communities have been particularly hit hard by Planned Parenthood’s genocide. The time has come for all who respect human dignity to stop the killing. God is just. His justice will not sleep forever.”
