We can't make America great without God
There are only two things that can save America: first, God … and second, the instruments of God, His people. We must be collaborators with Him in the saving of America.
A pro-life billboard campaign is drawing attention to the biggest killer in the Black community and is urging President Trump to take executive action against it.
The "Black Preborn Lives Matter" billboards, located in Philadelphia, Phoenix, Atlanta, and Milwaukee, were paid for by Students for Life. The Frederick Douglass Foundation and Human Coalition Action are also among several organizations partnering with the billboard campaign.
"No other entity, no other thing kills more Black Americans every single day than abortion," said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America and Students for Life Action during a virtual news conference Tuesday. "360 babies every single day are ended by Planned Parenthood, snuffed out of existence by Planned Parenthood -- and those are just Black lives."
Rev. Dean Nelson, chairman of The Frederick Douglass Foundation and executive director of Human Coalition Action, said his organizations sent a letter Monday to Planned Parenthood Federation of America, "challenging them to own up to their racist past, particularly its founder, Margaret Sanger."
"She wrote in a letter to Clarence Gamble in 1939 exclaiming that 'we don't want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,'" Nelson details about Sanger. "In addition, we're challenging Planned Parenthood to own up to their racist present, because we know that they still target minority populations, as it has been well documented by several organizations ... that nearly 80 percent of their surgical abortion facilities are within walking distance of Black and Latino neighborhoods."
More than 100 African-American leaders, including pro-life doctors, lawyers, scholars, activists, pastors, and elected officials, many of whom are Democrats, have co-signed the letter.
Meanwhile, Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life said President Trump can be of assistance here by defunding Planned Parenthood through executive action.
"His team knows this, and they have all these smart lawyers at the White House," said Hawkins. "We believe there is a way, without Congress, that they could defund Planned Parenthood for at least three years through executive action, and now is the time."
