The fight against racist Planned Parenthood continues to expand

When American Life League was founded in 1979, we were the first national organization to focus energy on fighting the entire agenda of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Not just Planned Parenthood’s abortion business, but its vile sexuality indoctrination programs, its attacks on parents, its harmful birth control (contraceptive) products and life styles, and its spread of the Humanist religion.

It was our honor in 1981 to help launch Human Life International to take on the International Planned Parenthood Federation around the world. We also were excited in 1985 to support the newly created STOPP organization in Poughkeepsie, New York.

As the years have passed, more and more organizations have added a fight against Planned Parenthood as one of their main focus items. We thank God for all of this activity and the joint work of all these organizations, which has created an atmosphere in this country where Planned Parenthood is understood as the enemy of life and of God.

The Wednesday STOPP Report has published continually since May 1985 (previously known as The Ryan Report and The STOPP Report). It remains the only national pro-life news publication focused exclusively on Planned Parenthood—what it is doing and what people are doing to fight against racist PP.

We are excited to bring you news that a combination of pro-life groups have just launched:

Black Preborn Lives Matter Billboards across the country, with calls for defunding racist Planned Parenthood.

During a virtual news conference this week, Black Preborn Lives Matter partners Students for Life of America and Students for Life Action along with the Frederick Douglass Foundation and Human Coalition Action announced the launch of a series of billboards across the country, calling for President Trump and other pro-life leaders to defund Planned Parenthood to address the wrongs of their racist past and present and to prevent a future in which Black lives are lost disproportionately to abortion. 

The billboards, now live in Philadelphia, Detroit, Phoenix, Atlanta, and Charlotte, with the messages BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER and PRESIDENT TRUMP, PLANNED PARENTHOOD ABORTS 360 BLACKS EVERY DAY. HELP US., are the first of those going out across the country. Other billboard messaging may be added during the campaign, click here for updates and to see the designs. The billboards are part of an on-going project involving Black Prolife leaders, from local to national levels, and Students for Life. 

“We are working together to confront the racist past and present of Planned Parenthood and to prevent a racist future in which Black lives are ended through the violence of abortion because of the way in which Planned Parenthood chooses to sell its deadly product,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America and Students for Life Action. 

“What cities haven’t allowed in paint on city streets will be displayed on billboards because BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER, and we will not be silent,” said Students for Life of America’s Kristan Hawkins. 

“As organizations and institutions across the country wrestle with the enduring harm caused by racism in America, it’s about time Planned Parenthood does the same,” Dean Nelson, Frederick Douglass Foundation and Human Coalition Action. 

We wish this coalition great success with its billboard campaign and we will continue to bring you news of fights against racist Planned Parenthood as they get launched.
