Plaque Honoring Slaves Not Enough Because It Doesn't Talk About Abortion
I have to admit that it never fails to amaze me how anti-choice activists can take any issue and turn it into an excuse to talk about abortion:
Today, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reed, John Lewis and other members of Congress including John Boehner are unveiling a plaque honoring the efforts of Black slaves who helped build the nation's Capitol Building.
"It is appropriate to recognize the fact that our forefathers helped to build the Capitol," said Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, and a leader of the www.prolifefreedomrides.com campaign. "Yet, much more needs to be done. For example, amending then passing HR 40 which calls for an investigation of the impact of slavery on our nation. The harmful impact of abortion needs to be included in that legislation."
"Here's the part I don't get..." said Day Gardner, President of the National Black Pro-Life Union, "How can Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and others flash their pearly-whites in front of television cameras supposedly to honor black slaves yet adamantly support the genocidal killing of the great, great, grand children of slaves by abortion? Right here, in the nation's capitol, for every black child born--another is brutally killed by abortion."
The unveiling of the plaque takes place just days before "Juneteenth," which is the African American celebration of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.
"If Congress really wants to honor African Americans, they can start by ending federally funded programs that allow abortion," said Alveda King.
