Statement from Lila on Rep. Sean Duffy’s remarks about abortion in the black community
ARLINGTON, VA (January 13, 2016) – “The disproportionately high numbers of abortions and abortion clinics in minority communities clearly support Rep. Duffy’s statement that abortionists target black communities. Live Action’s undercover video investigations have caught Planned Parenthood on multiple occasions all too willing to accept donations specifically given to abort Black children. To this day, Planned Parenthood continues to celebrate its founder, Margaret Sanger, who talked about the need to ‘exterminate the Negro population.’
“Rather than shoot the messenger, the Congressional Black Caucus should welcome Rep. Duffy as an ally in helping to stop this travesty against Black children and all children.
“Rep. Duffy is not only advocating for children who have no voice, but for their mothers when he points out the violence that abortion does to them as well.
“Rep. Duffy is being attacked and lied about because of the extreme pro-abortion interests of some members of Congress, no doubt fueled by the fact that collectively, current Congressional Black Caucus members have received over $400,000 in campaign contributions from the abortion lobby.
“It’s extremely tragic that some members of Congress who claim to speak for the human rights of black people are against the right to life for preborn black children and are trying to silence voices that expose the catastrophic consequences abortion has on the black community.”
