"Knowledge makes a man unfit to be a slave."
Dr. Day Gardner
"I stand here - wondering how the filthy back alley abortion doctors slithered and slimed their way to Main Street America where they continue to maim and kill young women by the thousands and their children by the millions. How is it that they thrive in black neighborhoods and communities -- disproportionately selling abortion to black people -- devastating black families?"
Justice Clarence Thomas
"The foundations for legalizing abortion in America were laid during the early 20th-century birth-control movement. That movement developed alongside the American eugenics movement. And significantly, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger recognized the eugenic potential of her cause."
Dr. Alveda King
"A majority, perhaps as many as 75 percent, of abortion clinics are in areas with high minority populations. Abortion apologists will say this is because they want to serve the poor. You don't serve the poor, however, by taking their money to terminate their children."
Dr. Ben Carson
“It has to do with the dignity of human life and we have a Creator who is wise enough to recognize that there is no more sacred bond than the one between the mother and the child she is carrying. They have perverted that bond into something that has become evil, something that is horrible, something that is harming me and something that I have a right to kill.”
Reverend Nathaniel Thomas
"Throughout our nation’s history, and through all our struggles to become a more perfect union, the church has led the charge as a voice for morality and righteousness. From the abolitionists who fought to end slavery to the suffragists who fought to give women equal access to the ballot box, the church historically has been the heartbeat of justice. Yet today, many pastors seem more concerned about losing church members than saving babies, and are silent when the only right thing to do is to speak out."
