Looks like other ant-choice activists are taking a page out of the Randall Terry playbook by seeking to upgrade the shock value of their efforts to get Congress to defund Planned Parenthood, which is why Patrick J. Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition and Johnny Hunter of the Life Education and Resource Networks [LEARN] will be demonstrating in front of Speaker John Boehner’s office displaying white sheets in an effort to link Planned Parenthood to the Ku Klux Klan:
Leaders to display “white sheets” to draw attention to the fact that Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, supported the Ku Klux Klan and their racist agenda and even spoke at a Klan rally.
White sheets are a longtime symbol of the KKK.
Clergy to say not one penny of public money should be given to an organization founded by a racist and Klan supporter.
Demonstration and News Conference Details —
When: Thursday, April 7, at 11:00 A.M.
Where: In front of Speaker Boehner’s office in the Longworth House office Building. The location is the public sidewalk on the corner of Independence and New Jersey Ave. SE Washington, D.C.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states;
“We are displaying these ‘white sheets’ to expose the reality that the Founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a racist who supported the agenda of the Ku Klux Klan and even participated in their events.
“We are calling upon the members of Congress, who have given billions of public money to Planned Parenthood over the years, to defund this organization whose roots are racist, bigoted and extremist.
“Our tax dollars should be given to groups that have embraced human rights, equality and justice for all, not to organizations founded by racists who embraced the agenda and philosophy of the KKK.
“Does America really want to fund the largest abortion provider in the world whose founder supported the Klan and racism?”
Dr. Johnny Hunter, National Director of LEARN one of the largest African-American pro-life organizations in America, comments;
“If Congress is going to continue funding Planned Parenthood, they may as well just give it to the KKK. Planned Parenthood’s main service to the black community is abortion.
“Like drug pushers who make a profit pushing drugs in a community, Planned Parenthood is an abortion pusher who makes a profit pushing abortion in a community. By aborting black babies, Planned Parenthood has killed more blacks than either the drug pushers or the KKK.
Are they going to be wearing these white sheets, or simply displaying them? Because if they are actually going to wear them, then this might be worth checking out.
