Abortion In The #1 Killer Of Blacks In America
“Abortion is the number-one killer of blacks in America. We’re losing our people at the rate of 1,452 a day. That’s just pure genocide. There’s no other word for it. (Margaret) Sanger’s influence and the whole mindset that Planned Parenthood has brought into the black community … say it’s okay to destroy your people. We bought into the lie; we bought into the propaganda…
Some blacks have even made abortion “rights” synonymous with civil rights.”
…Rev. John Hunter of LEARN
“And for those who feel that women in the 21st century should not terminate a pregnancy if it is unwanted and if they so determined, they would have to ask themselves why are we then saying and talking about fundamental rights and freedoms if we then are going to discriminate against people and condemn that when they exercise that right,” Abortions Manager & BLP Candidate George Griffith quoted in The Nation News
“Dead Weight Of Human Waste Should Be Eliminated” – Founder Of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger
“Organized charity itself is the symptom of a malignant social disease. Those vast, complex, interrelated organizations aiming to control and to diminish the spread of misery and destitution and all the menacing evils that spring out of this sinisterly fertile soil, are the surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding and perpetuating constantly increasing numbers of defectives, delinquents and dependents.
It [charity] encourages the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant.”
Will Barbados Elect An Abortions Manager As A Member Of Parliament?
As BLP Candidate and abortions manager George Griffith is finding out, ordinary folks in Barbados aren’t exactly lining up to shake his hand. Oh sure, he has his core support group follow him around looking happy and singing songs – but they look suspiciously like the same people who are committed to Planned Parenthood in a big way.
Will the ordinary Bajan vote for someone who is so committed to ending human life that he made a career out of it?
Even folks who don’t feel strongly one way or another about abortion might not want to see Griffith as their local representative.
How much will abortion be on people’s minds when they hear the name of George Griffith? We found a few recent articles from The Nation News from before the election was called.
There is no doubt that abortion will be a factor in the George Griffith campaign, but no one knows how much of a factor it will be.
What are your thoughts on this, folks?
Here are a few articles from the Nation News…
BFPA taken to task
Published on: 10/15/07.
A BAPTIST PASTOR has rapped the Barbados Family Planning Association’s (BFPA)international prize for safe abortions.Reverend Vincent Wood, the vice-president of the 45-million strong Baptist World Alliance, called the prize disgusting and said that abortion was on par with murder.He was speaking yesterday at the Emmanuel Baptist Church during a service carried on CBC Radio. The cleric preached on the topic Children Are Precious, Don’t Hurt Them.
Wood referred to a Press conference by the BFPA carried in the September 15 edition of the SATURDAY SUN announcing the International Planned Parenthood Federation’s prize and cash award and which quoted president Jefferson Kirton and executive director George Griffith. He also condemned subsequent advertisements by the BFPA reading “pregnant”, “not sure”, “need advice” and inviting the affected party to visit its office.
“The taking of human life . . . is called murder. All those who are destroying human life whether legally or not, that is murder. God does not take lightly to the destruction of life,” he said.He questioned how the BFPA could be asking Government for more subsidy for its life-taking services and queried why a Government minister, also a pastor, had been silent on the matter.
“What is appalling is that many of us have been observing or hearing of things occurring and we are keeping quiet saying; ‘These things don’t affect me, they are not in my house’.We seem not to care. We are prepared to see evil as good and good as evil. We keep quiet when we should be speaking out and speak out when we should be keeping quiet,” he said.
Wood cited St Matthew 18:4 and 5 and 19: and chapters 14 and 15 in which Jesus warned against causing harm to children.Turning his attention to the Child Care Board (CCB), Wood said that statistics suggested that children were being abused an average of two every week. He said it was not good enough for the CCB to say its hands were tied because mothers refused to speak up on their boyfriends.The pastor said the authorities should go after the mothers who were keeping such abuses secret, and suggested they be sent to prison if they refused to tell on the culprits.
Griffith firm on abortion issue

WOMAN should be forced to carry a pregnancy to full term. This is the position of George Griffith, executive director of the Barbados Family Planning Association (BFPA), as he sharply criticised church leaders who disagreed with the association’s stance on abortion.
Responding to an article on Pages 20 and 21 of yesterday’s WEEKEND NATION entitled Ministers Slam Abortion, Griffith told the SATURDAY SUN it was erroneous to believe that women become pregnant simply because abortions were legal. Instead, he pointed to several situations that could result in unwanted pregnancies, including rape and incest.
He added that even in the case of “accidents of passion”, it was unreasonable to expect a woman to carry a child to full term if her education was at stake or if she did not have adequate housing.
Griffith cited the unavailability of financial support as another possible factor. He also pointed to the fact that the Catholic Church disapproved of both contraceptive use and abortion. “What are they leaving women to do?” he asked.Furthermore, he argued that the ministers were taking away the right of women to choose.”Too many men feel they have the right to dictate to women what they should do with their bodies,” he charged.
Griffith further argued that no one, including the church, had been able to say exactly when a foetus became a human being. He indicated that the rights of the woman must take precedence over those of the foetus.
While noting the BFPA performed several other services, he said women must undergo pre-termination counselling before abortions were performed.Griffith added that the association advocated safe abortions because 30 per cent of worldwide maternal deaths were as a result of unsafe terminations.He said the BFPA would have liked if there was no need for abortion, but added that as long as that need existed, the association would continue to perform what they saw as a public health service.
Abortion no, Mr Griffith
Published on: 11/1/07.
I WISH TO RESPOND to Mr George Griffith’s article on Page 9 of the WEEKEND NATION of OCTOBER 19 with the headline Women Have Right To Choose.
Young people, a woman does not have the right to choose! I’m a mother of seven and, believe me, no mother has the right to make the “choice” to destroy her baby. She is called a murderer by society and is punished if she kills her child outside her womb. The only difference here is the child in the womb cannot be seen.
Mr Griffith, do not advocate such immorality to our young people. At conception, a completely separate human person comes into being.This person is entitled to protection and nourishment for nine months by its mother and has the right to be brought to birth, to live the life it is destined and entitled to live, just as you and I.
Young women agree to abortion because they are not fully informed and the counselling they receive is from persons with questionable consciences, with absolutely no respect for unborn life. They are as guilty of the act of taking a life as is the abortionist.
Young women who are given good counselling and are offered emotional and financial support do not abort their babies.In the United States where ultra sound technology is now so perfected, the unborn child is seen for what he or she is, there can be no lies about a “blob of tissue” any more and many babies are being saved. Thank God. The tide is turning!
The following quotation is absolutely clear and I ask those who read this article to meditate on it, for it is the truth.Destruction of the embryo in a mother’s womb (or elsewhere) is a violation of the right to life which God has bestowed upon this nascent life.To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue.
The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being had been deliberately deprived of his/her life. And that is nothing but murder. – Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Lutheran pastor and theologian.
Mr Griffith, your lack of compassion for the most defenceless of God’s children is appalling! I am wondering if you have had the inclination or the stomach to view some of the video material now available which shows exactly what goes on in abortion clinics, hospitals and doctors’ offices all over the world – the end product, human beings ending up in incinerators or trash cans. I have!
I have listened to the heartbreaking testimonies of doctors and nurses who have been active in this industry – today their lives are changed. Many remain scarred for life. This cannot be right? Where is your conscience, Mr Griffith?I am not a religious fanatic. This is the reality of abortion. As you said in your article, I have a right to express my views but it is more than that. I have a moral obligation as a Christian to ensure that our young people do not hear only your side of the subject. I am a mother, I have a daughter We do not have the right to choose.I pray God will enlighten you that you will see the folly you preach and teach.
God bless.–SHERRY WESTERN
‘Women have right to choose’
Date October 19, 2007
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of the Barbados Family Planning Association (BFPA), George Griffith, will not be picking a fight with Reverend Vincent Wood.That’s what he said on Tuesday after noting that the “goodly gentleman has spoken in the absence of good, quality information”.
Speaking with the WEEKEND NATION on Wednesday after attending the official opening of National Blood Bank at Jemmotts Lane, St Michael, Griffith said: “I would not want to fight with him in public; it would be disadvantageous to do that. I wouldn’t want to embarrass him but I think he was speaking as an old-time minister of the Gospel who has not availed himself of the 21st century life.”
On Sunday Wood, vice-president of the Baptist World Alliance, called the BFPA’s International Planned Parenthood Federation’s prize and cash award prize for safe abortions disgusting and said the procedure was on par with murder.
He also criticised the BFPA’s advertisement which read “pregnant”, “not sure”, “need advice” and invites the affected party to visit their Bay Street, St Michael offices.The Baptist minister was not the only person to criticise the BFPA’s prize. A letter writer also did in the Press which was then followed by other letters.
“We are not fazed by that. We think people have a right to express their view. About the award, those competing included the United States, Canada and the entire Western Hemisphere and we were simply advocating and promoting safe terminations.”We were insisting in our proposal and all of our protocols that women who have felt that they needed the termination of pregnancy were exposed to pre-termination counselling and post-termination counselling – something that does not generally happen.
“The BFPA allowing women to exercise their right to self-determination and to exercise control over their bodies and their sexuality really and truly is not about dollars and cents. If we had simply received the award and no cash prize that would be fine with us but we are leaders in the area simply because we’re insisting the women be provided with the highest possible quality service and I think we will stand by that.
“And for those who feel that women in the 21st century should not terminate a pregnancy if it is unwanted and if they so determined, they would have to ask themselves why are we then saying and talking about fundamental rights and freedoms if we then are going to discriminate against people and condemn that when they exercise that right,” Griffith said.
