Silence on abortion forfeits right to be outraged

Dr. Johnny Hunter pastors Cliffdale Community Church in Fayetteville, North Carolina and has been on the frontlines of the fight against abortion, partly because of its devastating impact on African-Americans. As Breitbart reports, Hunter does not mince words on the need for action in a sermon featured in the pro-life documentary Maafa21.

"Brothers and sisters, it's time for us to go to the streets on this issue," he implores. "We need to be in the streets on this issue. If we look the other way while our smallest brothers and sisters are being lynched in the womb, we lose the right to be outraged that we were once lynched by the Klan."

Planned Parenthood, whose founder, Margaret Sanger, considered African-Americans to be "weeds," has a history of deliberately locating its abortion clinics in minority, predominantly black neighborhoods.

Hunter, Dr. Johnny (LEARN)If the Ku Klux Klan were to open abortion clinics in black neighborhoods, Dr. Hunter points out that their motive would not be questioned. But Planned Parenthood is really no different.

"It's like a loaded gun aimed right between our eyes. And every time we walk into a voting booth and we help elect a politician who says he's pro-choice -- by pulling that lever, every time we pull that lever, we pull the trigger on that loaded gun," the pastor submits.

Dr. Hunter also heads Life Education and Resource Network (LEARN), which identifies itself as the "largest African-American, evangelical pro-life ministry in the United States" and purposes to educate people on the sin of abortion to and encourage them to do something about it.
