Mark Crutcher, the Texas anti-choice activist who inspired David Daleiden’s attack on Planned Parenthood , has recently turned much of his attention to arguing that legal abortion is the equivalent of “black genocide.” Crutcher brought his case to VCY America’s “Crosstalk” earlier this week, where he declared that African-American groups that support reproductive rights have “sold their souls to the devil” and “sold their own community down the river.”
Crutcher attacked the Congressional Black Caucus for holding an event in support of Planned Parenthood, saying that it was no different than if they had come out to “celebrate the Ku Klux Klan or the American Nazi Party.” CBC members, he said, “have completely sold their souls to the devil and they have sold their own community down the river”:
For these people in the Black Congressional Caucus, who, by the way, have a long history of selling out the black community in a lot of areas, but this one in particular, for these people to come out here now and celebrate this organization would be absolutely no different than for them to come out and celebrate the Ku Klux Klan or the American Nazi Party. In reality, Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation and the rest of the American abortion industry has done far more to wipe out the black community than the Klan ever dreamed of.
Just to give you an example of that, in four days, the American abortion industry wipes out more black people than the Ku Klux Klan killed in 150 years, and they do that every four days. So these people that you’re talking about, these politicians that you’re talking about, have completely sold their souls to the devil and they have sold their own community down the river because it is politically expedient for them to do so.
Crutcher also took aim at Black Lives Matter protesters who have expressed support for Planned Parenthood, comparing them to freed slaves who “would go into business for themselves and they would buy slaves”:
They are ambitious people who know that their ambitions can only be satisfied by supporting the abortion lobby, the population control people, so they will sell their own people down the river in order to do that. …
During the days of slavery, there were incidences … where slaves would earn their freedom, be set free by some method or another by the person who was their slaveowner, and then those people would go into business for themselves and they would buy slaves. So you would have black, African-Americans who were former slaves who now owned slaves.
