34 : slick pro-lifers

« 33 : jesus loves choice? | main | 35 : nearing the end »

This scene bothered me. There were a series of slicker-looking pro-life presentations all staffed by young, hip-looking black men.

Jessie suggested that they may have been paid, but I don't know - as someone else said, the religious presence in the black community is so strong, anti-abortion and anti-gay sometimes. It just upsets me that choice - in health care, reproductive rights, all that stuff - impacts young black people so much, and we have young black people fighting on the other side (though there were many, many more young black people on our side).

hi, i dont think what you are saying here is necessarilly fair. yes they happened to be black men but the overwhelming majoirty of the pro-lifers were white, also just because tehy are relelgious dose not mean that they are pro-life, which was wonderfully demonstrated by the catholics for choice. i just think you cant really put people in boxes and say they are doing things because of their race or relelgion.

Hey, I wasn't saying ALL YOUNG BLACK MEN ARE ANTI-ABORTION... I was saying that it upset me to see that any of them were. I think my comments on this picture were pretty clear on this.

"Choice" does affect blacks alot. Indeed it is wiping out their numbers by the tens of thousands every year, reducing their economic, social and political power significantly.

The fact that many abortion clinics are in poor (i.e., black) neighborhoods does not seem to register with you.

Call it "do it yourself genocide," or more accurately, "blood for profit."
