A pro-life group in Kentucky is working with a group of African-American pastors to protest Planned Parenthood’s abortion practices this week.
The initiative follows Gov. Matt Bevin suing a new Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Louisville for allegedly performing 23 illegal abortions without a license from Dec. 3 to Jan. 28, LifeNews reported. The Courier-Journal reports the abortion clinic stopped doing abortions after Bevin’s office sent a “cease and desist” order at the end of January.
Angela Minter, the head of Sisters for Life, a mostly black pro-life group, told WLKY newsthat they will join the pastors to protest the abortion clinic.
“Abortion undermines our community, and it undermines the morals of our community,” Minter said. “But in addition to that, having abortions in our community also has had a disproportionate havoc on the black community.”
LifeNews has previously reported on this phenomenon, with evidence that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are located in minority neighborhoods.
Bradley Mattes of Life Issues Institute said, “This solid evidence is overwhelmingly convincing that Planned Parenthood’s business model is to generate income from an increased number of abortions in minority neighborhoods.”
