President Donald Trump Declares January 22nd “National Sanctity of Human Life Day”

“And finally, I ask every citizen of this great Nation to listen to the sound of silence caused by a generation lost to us, and then to raise their voices for all affected by abortion, both seen and unseen.

President Donald J. Trump is unarguably the most pro-life president ever elected to the office of president. Those who are in the battle for the sanctity of life were blessed to have him as an advocate in the White House for the past four years. Below is a Life News article by Steven Ertelt which includes President Trump’s Proclamation.

On Friday, the majority of Americans who are pro-life will be mourning 48 years of legalized abortion under Roe v Wade. President Donald Trump yesterday acknowledged those victims of abortion and issued a proclamation designed a spark people to action to put an end to it.

President Trump declared January 22nd as National Sanctity of Human Life Day.

The President issued a stirring call to action and eloquently described how abortion has adversely affected our country in the world. He encouraged pro-life Americans to never back down in ending abortion and restoring a respect for the sanctity of human life.

Below is the full text of President Trump’s Proclamation:

NATIONAL SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE DAY, 2021
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
A PROCLAMATION

Every human life is a gift to the world.  Whether born or unborn, young or old, healthy or sick, every person is made in the holy image of God.  The Almighty Creator gives unique talents, beautiful dreams, and a great purpose to every person.  On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, we celebrate the wonder of human existence and renew our resolve to build a culture of life where every person of every age is protected, valued, and cherished.

This month, we mark nearly 50 years since the United States Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision.  This constitutionally flawed ruling overturned State laws that banned abortion, and has resulted in the loss of more than 50 million innocent lives.  But strong mothers, courageous students, and incredible community members and people of faith are leading a powerful movement to awaken America’s conscience and restore the belief that every life is worthy of respect, protection, and care.  

Because of the devotion of countless pro-life pioneers, the call for every person to recognize the sanctity of life is resounding more loudly in America than ever before.  Over the last decade, the rate of abortions has steadily decreased, and today, more than three out of every four Americans support restrictions on abortion.

Since my first day in office, I have taken historic action to protect innocent lives at home and abroad.  I reinstituted and strengthened President Ronald Reagan’s Mexico City Policy, issued a landmark pro-life rule to govern the use of Title Ten taxpayer funding, and took action to protect the conscience rights of doctors, nurses, and organizations like the Little Sisters of the Poor.  My Administration has protected the vital role of faith-based adoption.  At the United Nations, I made clear that global bureaucrats have no business attacking the sovereignty of nations that protect innocent life.  Just a few months ago, our Nation also joined 32 other countries in signing the Geneva Consensus Declaration, which bolsters global efforts to provide better healthcare to women, protect all human life, and strengthen families.

As a Nation, restoring a culture of respect for the sacredness of life is fundamental to solving our country’s most pressing problems.  When each person is treated as a beloved child of God, individuals can reach their full potential, communities will flourish, and America will be a place of even greater hope and freedom.  That is why it was my profound privilege to be the first President in history to attend the March for Life, and it is what motives my actions to improve our Nation’s adoption and foster care system, secure more funding for Down syndrome research, and expand health services for single mothers.  Over the past 4 years, I have appointed more than 200 Federal judges who apply the Constitution as written, including three Supreme Court Justices — Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.  I also increased the child tax credit, so that mothers are financially supported as they take on the noble task of raising strong and healthy children.  And, recently, I signed an Executive Order on Protecting Vulnerable Newborn and Infant Children, which defends the truth that every newborn baby has the same rights as all other individuals to receive life-saving care.

The United States is a shining example of human rights for the world.  However, some in Washington are fighting to keep the United States among a small handful of nations — including North Korea and China — that allow elective abortions after 20 weeks.  I join with countless others who believe this is morally and fundamentally wrong, and today, I renew my call on the Congress to pass legislation prohibiting late-term abortion.

Since the beginning, my Administration has been dedicated to lifting up every American, and that starts with protecting the rights of the most vulnerable in our society — the unborn.  On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, we promise to continue speaking out for those who have no voice.  We vow to celebrate and support every heroic mother who chooses life.  And we resolve to defend the lives of every innocent and unborn child, each of whom can bring unbelievable love, joy, beauty, and grace into our Nation and the entire world.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 22, 2021, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day.  Today, I call on the Congress to join me in protecting and defending the dignity of every human life, including those not yet born.  I call on the American people to continue to care for women in unexpected pregnancies and to support adoption and foster care in a more meaningful way, so every child can have a loving home.  And finally, I ask every citizen of this great Nation to listen to the sound of silence caused by a generation lost to us, and then to raise their voices for all affected by abortion, both seen and unseen.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventeenth day of January, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fifth. DONALD J. TRUMP

WHY ROE MUST GO…

Roe v Wade Supreme Court Justices

Just as we slowly realized the immorality of enslaving humans, it is time to get woke about abortion.

The following statement by Bonnie Finnerty, Education Director of the PA Pro-Life Federation declares the truth about the infamous US Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision in 1973.

Why Roe must go…

It’s been almost a half century, yet two Supreme Court decisions still divide our nation. In 1973, Roe v. Wade and its companion case Doe v. Bolton legalized abortion up through birth. Some Americans have accepted abortion on demand as being morally permissible because it is legal.

We need only consider that slavery was legal for over 240 years. Its end was brought about by a small yet undeterred group of people. When the truth that human dignity belongs to every person triumphed, the institution of slavery was abolished.

Modern-day abolitionists seek to end another immoral institution: the killing of innocent human life through legalized abortion. With the balance on the Supreme Court shifting, is overturning Roe a possibility?

There is no explicit right to abortion in the U.S. Constitution. In Roe, the Court ruled that the “right” to abortion was implicit in a right to privacy protected by the 14th Amendment. But the 14th amendment fails to mention privacy.  To justify abortion based on a right to privacy not stated in the Constitution, the Court referenced a 1965 case on contraception called Griswold vs. Connecticut.

In that decision, Justice William O. Douglas essentially invented a right to privacy, writing that the Bill of Rights casts penumbras (shadows) and emanations (rays) in which a “zone of privacy” exists. It was on this weak foundation of shadows and rays that a right to privacy and later a right to abortion were founded.

But the 14th Amendment does include explicit language about a more fundamental right: no State shall make a law depriving any person of life. Ironically, the 14th amendment is used to imply a right to abortion that is somehow prioritized over an explicitly stated right to life.

From the time Justice Blackmun wrote the majority opinion for Roe, legal scholars have acknowledged its shaky foundation. Even Blackmun’s law clerk, Edward Lazarus, said, “As a matter of constitutional interpretation and judicial method, Roe borders on the indefensible….”

Furthermore, Blackmun conceded that the right to abortion is not absolute, stating, “If this suggestion of personhood is established, [Roe’s] case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.” 

Since 1973, haven’t both science and technology shown us such irrefutable proof?  Advancements in ultrasound and embryology prove that we are distinctly human persons from the moment of fertilization.

With a feeble legal foundation and today’s advanced science, Roe seems ripe for reconsideration. If overturned, abortion will not become illegal. Rather, the issue would go back to each state.

Roe has always been bad law, failing to truly empower women in crisis. Being led to believe that one must kill her own child in order to succeed in the workplace, obtain an education, or maintain a relationship is far from liberation.

Just as we slowly realized the immorality of enslaving humans, it is time to get woke about abortion. Life in its smallest, most vulnerable, dependent stages is still precious human life worth protecting.  It’s how you and I began. How can we say others do not deserve the same right to life?

Roe must go.

Pennsylvania Department of Health Abortion Statistics for 2019

10 WEEK OLD UNBORN BABY

Below is the executive summary from the 2019 Pennsylvania Department of Health on abortion statistics. Please note: The 13 page report follows the Executive Summary in a PDF file.

Executive Summary

Pennsylvania has been monitoring and reporting on abortion data since 1975. This report is produced pursuant to Section 3214 of the Abortion Control Act, 18 Pa. C.S. § 3214(e)(1).

In 2019, there were 31,018 abortions performed in Pennsylvania. Nearly half, (14,816) of all abortions performed in Pennsylvania were to white women, and 13,516 were to black or African-American women. Abortions to women of Hispanic origin accounted for 3,336, or 10.8 percent, of all abortions in 2019. More than 87 percent (27,221) of the abortions performed in Pennsylvania in 2019 were to unmarried women.

The largest age group having abortions was 25-29, accounting for 9,529 (29.9 percent) of all 2019 abortions. Women under age 20 accounted for 8.2 percent of all abortions in 2019, and women under age 18 accounted for 2.4 percent. Comparatively, in 2018, women under age 20 accounted for 8.6 percent, and women under age 18 accounted for 2.7 percent.

Similar to 2018, 92.8 percent of the abortions performed in 2019 were on Pennsylvania residents. Residents of other states, territories and other countries accounted for just 2,222 abortions in 2019.

Of the abortions performed in 2019 in Pennsylvania, 83.3 percent were performed in five counties: Allegheny; Delaware; Northampton; Philadelphia; and York.

More than 40 percent of Pennsylvania residents having abortions were residents of Philadelphia County. Other counties with a large number of resident abortions included: Allegheny (3,265); Delaware (1,839); Montgomery (1,652); and Bucks (934). Of all 67 counties, 34 (50.7 percent) showed a decrease in the number of resident abortions performed in 2019 compared to 2018.

In 2019, there were 285 reports of complications from abortions that were submitted by physicians; 59.2 percent more than the 179 reported in 2018. More than 82 percent of the complications were related to retained products of conception, 12.3 percent to bleeding and 1.8 percent to infection.

Notes: The source for the number of abortions reported in Pennsylvania in 2019 is the “Report of Induced Termination of Pregnancy,” which is an individual report filed for each procedure. The source for the complications data is “Abortions: Report of Complications,” a separate reporting form completed by physicians who have provided medical care to a woman because of a complication resulting from an abortion or attempted abortion.

Unknowns are excluded from all calculations.

Major Pro-Life Group Gives President Trump its ‘Person of the Year’ Award

Due to his campaign promises and policies while in office regarding abortion, Trump has gotten the support of many major pro-life organizations.

Michael Gryboski filed the following Christian Post report concerning President Donald Trump’s pro-life award from Operation Rescue.

A prominent pro-life group has named President Donald Trump as its “Person of the Year” for 2020 for his public policy efforts on abortion and judicial appointments.

Operation Rescue announced Tuesday that Trump was the recipient of its 2020 Person of the Year Malachi Award, having previously bestowed him with the honor in 2017.

The organization cited Trump’s efforts to remove Title X funding from Planned Parenthood, pulling out of the United Nations’ World Health Organization due to its support for abortion, the appointment of numerous pro-life judges, including three justices of the United States Supreme Court, and his administration withholding $200 million in tax dollars from California over a state law requiring healthcare providers to cover abortions, regardless of any moral objections.

“President Trump has done more to build a Culture of Life in the U.S. than all previous presidents combined,” said Operation Rescue’s President Troy Newman, as quoted in the announcement.

“It is my honor to acknowledge these accomplishments and relay my deep gratitude to him for keeping and exceeding all his promises when it comes to the matter of abortion.” 

Operation Rescue awards its annual Malachi Award to a person they believe has done notable things to advance protections for unborn babies.

Last year, the group gave the award to Samuel Lee, a Missouri pro-life activist credited with crafting legislation that curbed the abortion practices of Planned Parenthood in the state.

Operation Rescue previously awarded Trump the Malachi Award in 2017, citing among other things his Department of Justice launching a formal investigation into claims that Planned Parenthood profited from selling aborted baby body parts, reversing an Obama-era rule requiring states to fund Planned Parenthood, expanding conscience protections for religious groups opposed to covering abortions in their healthcare plans, and enforcing the Mexico City Policy, which barred the funding of abortion overseas.

“He has proven to be the most pro-life president we have had in modern history and has backed up his pro-life rhetoric with action like no other before him,” stated Newman in 2017.

Due to his campaign promises and policies while in office regarding abortion, Trump has gotten the support of many major pro-life organizations.

Peace in the Womb Christmas Caroling Observed at Warminster Planned Parenthood

Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition sponsors Peace in the Womb on Friday, December 17th. This annual event is observed nationwide.

The temperature was below freezing as faithful pro-lifers gathered on the frozen snow to sing Christmas carols. The abortion site parking lot was full while 28 pro-lifers sang Christmas hymns. As women walked into the building, sidewalk servants were trying to persuade them to choose life for their unborn babies.

As we sang the good news about the birth of Jesus, women were entering a building full of death. The atmosphere was a contradiction of both joy and sadness. This battle for life has continued since the infamous January 22, 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision. Over sixty million unborn babies have lost their lives since then. Many mothers, fathers, grandparents and siblings are missing an irreplaceable member of their family.

We must never surrender in this battle for life. Through perseverance in prayer, public witness and supporting local pregnancy care centers, the Body of Christ can overcome this evil of abortion.

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”
Ephesians 6:10-13 

Here’s Which Coronavirus Vaccines are Developed Using Cells From Aborted Babies

The potential that the much anticipated vaccines would use cells from aborted babies poses weighty moral problems for many Americans who object to abortion.

Life News published an informative article authored by Mary Margaret Olohan who writes for Daily Caller.

The pro-life Charlotte Lozier Institute has released information on which coronavirus vaccines have been made using cells obtained from aborted babies.

The Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) released a new chart Thursday examining whether eight leading COVID vaccines were either produced or tested using cells obtained through abortions. The institute’s analysis found that most of the vaccine candidates did not use cell lines derived from abortions in their production, though several used abortion-derived cell lines in laboratory testing.

The potential that the much anticipated vaccines would use cells from aborted babies poses weighty moral problems for many Americans who object to abortion.

Religious leaders such as Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas said earlier this year that he would refuse the vaccine if “we use body parts of aborted children,” saying, “I will not kill children to live.”

“Unfortunately, some vaccine developers have unnecessarily put American families in a difficult position by choosing to use controversial human fetal cell lines in production or testing, or by a lack of transparency,” CLI said in a statement. “Many developers already opt to use animal cell lines, non-fetal human cells, yeast, or chicken eggs instead.”

“We urge all developers to avail themselves of these options going forward,” the institute’s statement continued. “Doing so will reduce vaccine hesitancy for those who oppose the use of fetal cell lines, thereby increasing the public health impact of the vaccine.”

CLI evaluated vaccines produced by Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Novavax, Sanofi/GSK, Inovio, and Merck.

Both AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson use abortion-derived cell lines in development, production, and lab testing, the analysis found.

Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, Novavax, and Inovio use abortion-derived cells in some tests but do not use abortion-derived cells in other tests, the analysis found. These four do not use abortion-derived cell lines in development or production of the vaccine, the analysis found.

The analysis could not determine whether Sanofi/GSK and Merck used the abortion-derived cell lines in lab testing, but noted that Sanofi/GSK and Merck do not use abortion-derived cell lines in development or production of the vaccine.

Declining Birth Rates Linked to Secularization and Growing Hostility Toward Religion

“There is a close correlation between a fertility rate of a particular society or nation and the level of religious involvement or participation in that society.”

Brandon Showalter is a reporter for the Christian Post. His article connects the dots between the precipitous worldwide decline of birthrates, namely human secularism and hostility toward religion.

Declining fertility rates have a significant correlation with increased secularization, according to Baylor University professor Philip Jenkins.

In a Regent College (Vancouver, British Columbia) live-stream titled “Fertility and Faith: A Conversation with Philip Jenkins,” the Baylor University professor of history and co-director of the program on historical studies of religion, explained Thursday that demography derives from changes in religious belief.

Much of modern Africa tends to be devoutly religious and they also happen to have high fertility rates, Jenkins said. By contrast, the lower a population’s fertility rate the greater the likelihood it is for people to separate from faith communities and religious institutions. The fertility rate, then, serves as an insightful window into how societies around the world become more secularized.

We measure change in a society through fertility,” Jenkins said.

“There is a close correlation between a fertility rate of a particular society or nation and the level of religious involvement or participation in that society.”

Amid the relatively recent collapse in fertility rates around the world, especially in Europe, secularization is rising. Jenkins noted that if you told him the fertility rate of any given country it would be fairly easy to say whether that nation allows legal same-sex unions, surmise its attitudes toward faith and religion, and how strong its religious institutions are.

While this correlation is not brought about by simple causation, the link is nevertheless demonstrably present, he stressed.

In the 1960s, the fertility rate in Denmark began to drop below replacement level as the country became more secular. Meanwhile, in the sub-Saharan African country of Uganda, the average woman had five children and religious belief was strong. This pattern holds true across the world with a notable few that seem to buck the trend.

“You might argue that as you take children out of the picture there are far fewer links connecting families and people to institutions. … Take children out of the religious picture and see what happens,” he said.

Or, he posited, it could be the reverse. That as people become more secular in their thinking they forego the charge to “be fruitful and multiply.”

Whichever comes first, these changes are happening rapidly. In Italy, the collapse of the fertility rate and the slide toward rampant secularization has happened within a decade, he noted.

Low-fertility societies are more likely to be hostile to religion, Jenkins added. The key factor in this phenomenon is the institutions.

“Once you separate the idea of family, once you separate sexuality and reproduction, people become a lot less willing to have churches or religious institutions tell them what to do with their personal lives,” he said.

When these religiously-informed ethics break down, political campaigns subsequently arise to legalize or permit by referendums such things as abortion or euthanasia. A low-fertility, secularized society is more inhospitable to efforts of churches and religious institutions to push back, and are often prone to believing the worst charges about faith-based organizations and institutions, he explained.

Jenkins went on to describe how one of the largest shifts in consciousness in his lifetime was from the belief that there was going to be a population explosion. What happened was the reverse.

“To put it crudely, we have lost 2 billion people since then [the 1970s] from what was projected versus what we’ve actually got,” he said. “This is happening because so many people in Latin American and Asia gave up having traditional ‘third world’ population growth rates and suddenly became Danish.”

Nat’l Black Pro-Life Union President Tells Christians Who Support President Trump: “This May Very Well Be Our Jericho!”

“Throughout the Bible Christians prayed and then acted upon prayer. The walls of Jericho came tumbling down with prayer and action.” Day Gardner

Day Gardner, Nat’l Black Pro-Life Union President

Christians who support the sanctity of life are people of prayer and action. They gather at abortion sites to pray for moms to choose life for their unborn babies. They urge politicians to vote for pro-life legislation. They run for political office. They support crisis pregnancy care centers and ministries helping moms in need. They are serious about their faith and their call to pray for the most innocent among us and to help their moms.

Below are remarks by Day Gardner, President of the National Black Pro-Life Union “urging we must pray….but also act.”

I have supported Donald J. Trump since he announced he was running for President. At first, it was because he was self-funding and he was novel. As time went on, I realized his view of America — was my view of America. It still is, even more so.

I think we all knew something was askew about the 2020 election.

For me it started with President Trump’s mega, MAGA events of 10, 20 and 30,000 patriots who waited hours and in some cases days to support and love on our President.

They cheered every time he promised, “We will make America great again,” “We will never be a socialist country” and responded with, “WE LOVE YOU” in unison. I had never heard that for any president before. Watching the events on television, I was so proud of America, PROUD of our amazing President, his love for America, and his many accomplishments — promises made and promises kept. I had the utmost respect for him and admitted to myself that I loved our President, too!

Compare that to angry Joe Biden’s few and far between speeches in little circles of five or six people, or in almost empty parking lots — something just seemed wrong…terribly wrong.

When the New York Post broke the story about Hunter Biden receiving millions and millions of dollars by selling access to his father with Joe Biden getting a cut of that money, I thought, “Wow! That’s it! That would certainly explain Joe Biden’s BFF relationship with China.”

I expected the Democrats would now have to scramble to dig up another candidate. Maybe Bernie would finally get his shot since he was forced out of the picture twice.

However, the main stream media blatantly refused to cover this huge story, aided and abetted by Twitter and Facebook. I think we all knew something very dark, very sinister was happening in this election. Joe Biden confirmed it in a campaign speech last week when he actually said: “I don’t need you to get me elected.” He also said, verbatim: “We have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” https://youtu.be/WGRnhBmHYN0

My heart breaks for President Trump, who has been under vicious, fraudulent attacks since he was candidate Trump. Any lesser man would definitely have buckled from the constant strain and the extreme bashing from the media and the “Left.” Next to my father, Richard Lawson Lipford, (deceased) Donald Trump is the strongest man I have ever known.

I am a born-again Christian. I believe, for whatever reason, the hand of God has been on this President. Am I saying Donald Trump is a saint? Heck, no…neither am I, neither are you! What I am saying is God has, throughout history, used very flawed people to do His miraculous will. Look how God used David, an adulterer and Saul, who was a killer of Christians until God changed him. He was renamed Paul and authored 11 books of the New Testament. 

President Trump has proclaimed God more than any other President in my lifetime and exalted Jesus publicly. Which is why it is important for me, and especially all Christians, to speak up now. Many Christian leaders have contacted me to join them in prayer for President Trump and our beautiful America which is slipping into socialism. Of course, we must pray… but we must also act.

Where would we be if the disciples had not gone out to spread the Gospel? Where would we be if they had just stayed in the upper room praying? They prayed and then acted upon their prayer. Throughout the Bible Christians prayed and then acted upon prayer. The walls of Jericho came tumbling down with prayer and action.

America, this may very well be our Jericho.

Black Pro-Lifers Tell Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz: Get Out of Our Neighborhoods

“Where can members of the black community turn for justice to end systemic racism if not to the entities funding it?” Connie Eller, Missouri Blacks for Life

The following is a news article by Micaiah Bilger of Life News concerning Planned Parenthood targeting black communities.

Black pro-life leaders are telling the Planned Parenthood abortion chain to get out of their neighborhoods and stop targeting black women and unborn babies.

The National Black Pro-life Coalition recently filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, accusing the abortion chain of decades of racial discrimination, One News Now reports.

Planned Parenthood itself recently admitted that its founder, Margaret Sanger, held eugenics beliefs “rooted in racism, ableism and classism” and removed her name from its New York City facility. Hundreds of Planned Parenthood employees also accused its leaders of racism earlier this year.

Lori Hoye of the Issues4Life Foundation said the abortion chain needs to do more than just disavow its founder.

“Get out of our neighborhoods, shut down, because the acknowledgment is too little too late,” Hoye said in a statement. “Over 104 years of targeting black and other women of color cannot be erased by the present-day acknowledgment of their racist roots. Get out now!”

Though abortions hurt families of every race and culture, statistics indicate that abortions disproportionately hurt the African American community. Census data indicates that African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population, but they have nearly 40 percent of all abortions. And New York City health statistics indicate that more African American babies are aborted in the city than are born each year.

A recent study by Life Issues Institute found that 86 percent of Planned Parenthood’s abortion facilities are located in or near African American and Latino neighborhoods.

Black pro-life leaders said it’s time for HHS to investigate the abortion chain for racial discrimination.

“Where can members of the black community turn for justice to end systemic racism if not to the entities funding it?” Connie Eller of Missouri Blacks for Life said. “Planned Parenthood receives more than a half billion dollars annually from our government. They have used that money to carry out their eugenic scheme of population control, and it is time for it to stop.”

The National Black Pro-Life Coalition urged HHS to act quickly and stop the abortion industry from targeting more babies and mothers for abortions.

“The tangled, vicious and deceptive web Planned Parenthood has deeply embedded in the fabric of the black community must be torn down now if blacks are truly to experience a great America,” it said in a statement. “The National Black Pro-Life Coalition prays HHS will move swiftly to end the targeting.”

The coalition estimates about 20 million unborn black babies have been aborted since 1973 in the U.S.

Planned Parenthood has a long history of discrimination, beginning with its founder Margaret Sanger. Sanger helped to lead the eugenics movement, frequently promoting discrimination through her writing and speaking, including in a speech to the KKK in 1926.
