Labeled To Intimidate!

DHS Attempt to Intimidate The Pro-life Community
By Pastor Stephen E. Broden

In an attempt to intimidate the Pro-life community, The Department Homeland Security have categorized as rightwing terrorist all who are fighting for the sanctity of life and unborn babies. I find this to be a curiosity. How can this be in America? A group of citizen exercising their first amendment rights be targeted and labeled as a treat to the homeland?

Without question, this is one of the more dangerous moves that the Obama administration has made since winning the election. What we are witnessing is a trail balloon, a kind of test to determine how the public would respond to their deliberate attempt to intimidate and label Americans. Thus far the strongest response has come primarily from our veterans. The Veterans community responded swiftly and boldly against DHS attempt to re-define them as terrorist. Because of their immediate reaction Secretary Janet Napolitano came forward and apologized to all veterans for the poor language describing them as terrorist.

Noticeably absent in her apology was any mention of this infamous reports blatant misinformation in labeling those who are involved in protecting the lives of the unborn as terrorist. In large part her arrogant disregard for our struggle, for our movement to change the conscience of Americans concerning the sanctity of life is because of the puny, and negligible response from we in the pro-life community who sit silently as the left defines us as terrorist.

In defining those who are “dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration” as right winged terrorist DHS is calling the Catholic community, the Protestant community, and all moral minded men and women all over this country terrorist. This is outrageous! If I didn’t know any better I would call this asinine. Simply because we hold to a Christian worldview on when life begins we are terrorist. This is a leftwing ploy targeted against Christians, nothing more than an attempt to intimidate the pro-life community into silence and out of the public debate.

Friends, The Department of Homeland Security, are calling every Jew, Gentile, Protestant, and Catholic who firmly believes that life begins in the womb a terrorist! May I say to every elitist at DHS and the so called intellectuals who put this report togerther, we are not terrorist because we believe life begins at conception, we are not terrorist because we resist the culture of death; we are not terrorist because we believe the constitution extends to babies in their mothers womb! Secretary Napolitano, hear us loud and clear, we are not terrorist because we call on every American to recognize that the abortion industry is engaged in the greatest act of terrorism ever perpetrated on innocent babies, women and their families; the evil practice prenatal murder! Above all, we are not intimidated!

I am convinced now more than ever that it is imperative that the pro-life community stands together with one voice and demand that this attempt to label and intimidate pro-lifers into silence is unacceptable! We cannot allow this powerful government agency to label us for the consequences could potentially shut down our constitutional rights to free speech, and to peaceably assemble. We cannot allow some ideologue to utilizes his or her bully pulpit to remove our voice from the public square. We must not remain silent when so many innocent lives are at risk.

President Thomas Jefferson said, “…forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we receive from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them.”

In keeping with the words of this great president we The Black Pro-life Movement demand a public apology from The Department Of Homeland Security. In addition we seek for Secretary Napolitano to acknowledge publicly that we have a constitutional right to free speech, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances without being called terrorist.

Actions Are Louder than Words!

Actions Are Louder Than Words!
Don’t be fooled!

By Pastor Stephen Broden
Dallas, Texas
There is a lot being said by the actions of the Obama administration that’s different from what’s being said by them concerning the issue of prenatal murder and the abortion industry. For example, through executive orders President Obama has overturned the ban on the Mexico City policy, an action that has now made it possible for our tax dollars to be used to support international funding of prenatal murder. In addition the President has acted to lift the ban on embryonic stem cell research. This research makes possible the murder of embryonic babies in Petri dishes. Also seen in President Obama’s economic stimulus plan are provisions to provide millions of taxpayer’s dollars to fund the continuation of the abortion industry; an industry that targets black women and babies for prenatal murder under the deception language of reproductive health. All of these actions were done in rapid sequence to fulfill the President campaign pledge to Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. All before the first 100 days of his administration. And now there is talk about reducing abortions.

However, what we heard during the campaign from candidate Obama in a televised debate with John McCann was “no one is for abortion.” That’s what he said! We were all left with the impression that he was personally against abortion. Nevertheless, when one looks closely at what President Obama has done since he took office, one sees a contradiction in what he said as a candidate against what he is doing as President. Why is this relevant to us and most especially relevant to black community? Well, US News and World Report in a recent blog outlined the Presidents goals for reducing the need for abortions. This is a curiosity in light of this administrations action that promoted the continuation of prenatal murder through supporting the abortion industry both here and abroad. Now the Obama administration is announcing a plan to reduce the rate of abortions. I see your actions better than I hear you verbiage.

Recently a meeting was held with members of the pro-life community by the Obama administration to engender support for his plan to reduce abortions. Absences from that meeting were black pro-lifers who represent the community where over 14 million babies have been womb lynched since 1973. The black community has over 37% of all abortions in America. The black community is where the largest number of prenatal murder takes place. Why would President Obama the first black President not invite black pro-lifers to be at the table to discuss the number one scourge that is more dangerous than any other pathology that threaten the viability of our communities?

Is this just a simple blunder? I don’t think so; we in the black pro-life community are suspicious of the Presidents new plan to reduce abortion when he deliberately ignores the community where the abortion scourge is most out of control. We are watching what you are doing and not listening to what you say.

Another example of doing one thing and saying another was seen on March 27th in Houston Texas where Secretary Hilary Clinton was awarded the Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger Award. The history of Planned Parenthood and its goals to eliminate black folk is common knowledge among blacks in the pro-life movement. It is well documented that Margaret Sanger sought to exterminate the black race here in America and across the world. However, this administration did not discourage one of its chief spokespersons from receiving that award. Margaret Sanger is offensive to most life loving blacks that know her history.

Now, may I ask you a question? Do you believe that this administration is truly seeking ways to reduce abortions? We hear a lot of conversation going on right now, but we have witnessed this administration supporting the abortion industry through executive orders and the funding of Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers with funds from those of us who don’t support the practice. Actions are louder than words. By the way black pro-lifers are not seeking ways to reduce this evil practice, we want to eliminate it out of our culture, out of America.
