Black Christians to pray for the unborn & for Planned Parenthood staff
Birmingham, AL – This Saturday, June 24, local community leaders will gather to pray against abortions performed at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Birmingham, Alabama. Planned Parenthood celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2016, prompting African American leaders to unite under the banner “100 No More.” While Blacks make up only 13% of the U.S. population, over 30% of all abortions are performed on Black mothers. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood was an outspoken advocate of sterilizing blacks to reduce their population in the world. In one hundred years, Sanger’s dream has become one of America’s great human rights nightmares.
**Due to weather, the rally has been moved from outside the Planned Parenthood clinic to Bread of Life World Outreach Ministries.

African American community leaders and pro-life advocates will gather for a Human Rights Prayer Rally to pray for mothers, fathers, the unborn and Planned Parenthood staff. Their goal is to call attention to the devastating impact that Planned Parenthood has had on the Black community. They believe that federal funding should be shifted from Planned Parenthood and given to the Federally Qualified Health Centers that offer health care to women across the nation.

About 100 No More:
100 No More is a coalition of Americans who believe that abortion is a violation of the basic human right to live. The coalition expresses its outrage against abortion through education and prayer. 100 No More educates the public by shedding light on abortion pioneers like Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger who believed minorities, the disabled and the poor should be sterilized. Sanger’s focus on African Americans through “The Negro Project” has given rise to an abortion culture that targets African Americans. One out of every three abortions in America are performed on Black mothers. To learn more, visit http://www.100nomore.com.
