Pro-Life Groups to Protest Against Black Genocide at NAACP Convention July 14

COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- Abortion kills 1,452 black infants every day in this country. Sadly, the black community and its leaders are largely ignoring the slaughter. On July 14, 2008, LEARN ( with assistance from CBR Midwest will confront the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) at its annual national convention in Cincinnati, OH, about its unwillingness to substantively address abortion.

Historically, the NAACP has failed to address the concerns of many of its delegates about abortion. In 2004, the NAACP issued a resolution voicing support for "equal access to abortion" and urged its members to participate in a pro-abortion rally in Washington, DC. In 2007, the NAACP, for the second time in four years, blocked a proposed resolution expressing opposition to abortion. The good news is the NAACP's Macon chapter is once again poised to present another pro-life resolution at this year's Cincinnati conference and we will be there to support them.

Protest Against Black Genocide

Who: LEARN ( with assistance from CBR Midwest, and other groups
What: Huge Handheld Signs, and "Choice" pro-life trucks we will expose delegates to the reality of black genocide.
Where: Public sidewalks in the vicinity of and around the Duke Energy Center
When: July 14, 2008 from 9:00 am-2:00 PM

LEARN Statement:

"By utilizing CBR's pro-life signs, and 'Choice' billboard trucks we will teach the delegates of the reality of black genocide. By displaying actual abortion images at this year's convention we hope to show the need for the NAACP to allow discussion at the convention the detrimental health ramifications of abortion. The physical and psychological maladies caused by abortion are deliberately hidden from unsuspecting women." -- Rev. Clenard H. Childress, Jr., Founder,
