Church Leaders and African-American women have protested the opening of a new Planned Parenthood clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina on Monday.
Christian post reports that the leaders expressed outrage during the protest, stating that the nation’s largest abortion service providers were not welcomed to the city.
First lady and director of women’s ministry at the Upper Room Church of God in Christ, Pamela Wooden, during the protest said, “When I heard about how Planned Parenthood is trying to take up shop here in this city, I had to come and help you expose Planned Parenthood for who and what they really are.
“Planned Parenthood is a genocidal organization that targets black women and profits from lying and killing innocent children.”
Activists however, warn that the establishment of the new clinic will give room to perform abortions in Charlotte.
In another development, the first lady and a minister of the multicampus megachurch Victory Christian Center, Minister Marilyn Gool had previously stated that the African-American community across the nation is facing “a silent genocide” at the hands of the abortion industry.
“It is the American Holocaust. Just as the Jewish Holocaust began be devaluing the Jews and making them less than human, the same thing has happened in the abortion industry.
“Black people have to rise up. This has to be the beginning of a black movement to stand up and say it’s enough.” Gool said.
Over the years, many African-American church leaders have debated that Planned Parenthood was founded to “exterminate” the black population, noting that its founder, Margaret Sanger, endorsed eugenics.
