Crisis pregnancy centers target young black mothers  

6 comments
While watching BET, I saw this commercial:



I knew right away what it was, and going to their website confirmed it: a directory of crisis pregnancy centers. This commercial is designed to manipulate scared pregnant women, especially women of color, hence the fact that the ad was on BET and featured all black actresses. Oh, and there is the window that popped up when I clicked on the link to view the commercial on their website:


They titled the commercial "pregnancyline-black." The other advertisement features diverse actresses, though they are not all black, and it's entitled, "pregnancyline-english."

It's the perfect plan! Since black women are constantly getting knocked up and they are often poor with absent baby daddies, Pregnancy Line is there to direct them to "choose" adoption so their baby can go to a nice middle-class suburban white family that can give it a great life!

There are more crisis pregnancy centers in the U.S. than abortion clinics. To help eliminate these harmful and misleading establishments, get involved with FeministCampus.org's Campaign to Expose Fake Clinics. I held a protest against a local CPC and it went really well. I'm sick of seeing their bullshit advertisements and knowing that they are misleading thousands of pregnant women.

What next?

    Wow - you sure know how to stigmatize a sister. I suppose you'd rather these Black girls go to Planned Parenthood where you can know they will be talked into an abortion. After all Planned Parenthood admitted that they knowingly accept money from racist people who want to see the black race eliminated all together.
    Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger spoke to the KLAN and in Sanger’s own autobiography she openly admitted that she received an additional dozen invites from the Klan to speak with them. Planned Parenthood icon, Margaret Sanger, had on her board Lothrop Stoddard an avowed racist whose books were used as text books by the Klan. Sanger not only founded Planned Parenthood, but was a card carrying member of the American Eugenics Society. Alan Guttmacher, former Planned Parenthood Prez and (research arm of Planned Parenthood) was a Vice President of the American Eugenics Society. In fact, many of their board members were eugenic society members. Educate yourself about abortion and Black Genocide by watching a documentary called; Maafa21. Listen to Sanger and her croanies racist rants here: http://www.maafa21.com

    I'm well aware of Margaret Sanger's alleged racist beliefs. In fact, most pioneer feminists held racist views because they were products of their racist times.

    Planned Parenthood is not out to eliminate the black race. That is absolutely ridiculous, and you know it. Planned Parenthood doesn't "talk" people into abortions - they give them all their options, including parenting and adoption. Crisis pregnancy centers often give false information about abortion because they are led by their anti-choice beliefs.

    Anonymous, people like you are constantly saying how racist all white people are and all we want to do is exterminate you, when it's really people like you who are the most racist of all and keep the "race war" going. People like you give lesser-minded whites a reason to be racist.

    On behalf of millions of post abortive women, thousands whom I have met and heard from, we say that abortion hurts women and kills babies. I had abortions myself and miscarriage and health problems including breast and cervical issues, because of the abortions that the abortion clinics said were "safe." Abortions are never safe! As to the pregnancy care centers, why don't you talk to the hundreds of thousands of women who have been helped at the pregnancy care centers? Talk about targeting scared women, what do you call what you are doing? Lying to women, especially Black women that no one cares about them and their babies but that someone who will give them a free abortion to kill their babies and harm their bodies is their friend. As to adoption, Black women adopt Black babies. I know some. Planned Parenthood makes a whole lot of money killing Black babies and lying to Black women. You are their spokesperson, huh?

    Fewer than 0.3% of abortion patients experience a complication that requires hospitalization. Based on statistics, giving birth is actually more dangerous than having an abortion.

    And Planned Parenthood does inform women of the risks of abortion. This STRAIGHT from their website:

    "A range of emotions is normal after an abortion. There is not one 'correct' way to feel. Some women feel anger, regret, guilt, or sadness for a little while. For some women, these feelings may be quite strong."

    "For some women, having an abortion can be a significant life event, like ending a relationship, starting or losing a job, or becoming a parent. It can be very stressful and difficult."

    "Most women can have a medication abortion safely. But all medical procedures have some risks, so safety is a concern. In extremely rare cases, very serious complications may be fatal. The risk of death from medication abortion is much less than from a full-term pregnancy or childbirth."

    I have visited crisis pregnancy centers, and none of them give balanced information. They shove "post-abortion stress syndrome" (which has been disproven time and time again and officially rejected by the American Psychological Association) down the throats of women, and stress adoption and parenting. They offer post-abortion counseling, but where is the post-adoption counseling? Surely carrying a child to full term, giving birth, and then having to give it away can be just as emotionally harmful as abortion can. But they don't talk about that. Because they want you to "choose" life. But these women are not actually choosing. To make a proper choice, a woman needs all her options.

    How is it okay to sit down with a terrified pregnant woman and show her gruesome pictures of deformed fetuses in an attempt to scare her into parenting? How is that EVER okay?

    More and more women are coming forward and sharing their horrifying experiences with crisis pregnancy centers. One woman tried to explain to a "nurse" at a pro-life "clinic" that she couldn't parent a child at the moment because her partner was abusive, and she was more afraid of what her partner might do to the child than the repercussions of abortion. The "nurse" replied: "But you don't think he'll change once he sees his beautiful little baby?"

    All in all, the staff at CPCs overstep boundaries. They are not there to help women; they are there to push the pro-life agenda.

    I just love how these racist black people turn us wanting to let black women know they have the option of an abortion into white people wanting to exterminate black people through abortion. You are a bunch of puffed up psychopaths, and need to get over your damn selves.
