When do Black Lives Matter? Do they matter in the womb? Do Black lives matter to the legislative body within a legislative body of policy and reform creators, that was specifically created to represent those that are African-American/Black American legislators and as one of their organization’s goals states, “positively influencing the course of events pertinent to African-Americans and others of similar experience and situation”, and “achieving greater equity for persons of African descent in the design and content of domestic and international programs and services.” To be a member of the CBC one has to be African-American, although the bylaws do not state that, it was very apparent when a newly elected congressman from Tennessee applied for membership and was denied because the members of the caucus determined that the CBC should remain, “exclusively Black.”
When one purports to represent a race for the best interest of all those that proclaim to serve and legislate upon their behalf, one would therefore believe that they would not follow in lock-step with others supporting a “choice” that was founded by one of America’s most racist eugenicists, Margaret Sanger, and her blatant targeting of African-Americans with the Negro Project. Sanger is verifiable documented for stating, “Birth control is not contraception indiscriminately and thoughtlessly practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks – those human weeds (blacks) which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.” (New York Times interview, 1923).
Star Parker of CURE (Center for Urban Renewal and Education), once again on the front lines of challenging those that create the policies affecting their communities, especially in one of the most noble of causes, to defend life from conception to natural death, and with one simple compelling question, one that many others should being asking and in support, as well as demanding a honest answer, “why isn’t the Congressional Black Caucus defending us?” I want to encourage you to view Star’s brief but informative video regarding the CBC and abortion below.
