The caliber of the unintelligence

They must frolic and play or they’ll die.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

At UNC Greensboro, a female student begged us to give up protesting abortion and spend our time and energy promoting free IUDs (that she claimed were 99.5% effective).  She insisted this would end the need for abortion, apparently being unaware that the IUD is an abortifacient.  This obviously well-formed student wrote,

“Abstinence programs do not work because sex is a basic human need like food, water or shelter.  It is built into our genetic code to crave it and there is nothing we can do to curb this … very human desire … Please reconsider what you spend your time protesting.  Your time is incredibly valuable and people with protesting souls like yours need to take advantage of their gifts.  Please, please protest for free birth control.  IUD’s especially.”

This goes beyond the commonly held view that sex without responsibility is an entitlement.  In this woman’s mind, she and her classmates must have a regular romp in the sack or suffer something akin to starvation, dehydration, or hypothermia.  I have images of mythological nymphs frolicking through the forest in a decaying, oversexed society.  The world is collapsing down around them but all they can do is frolic and play, or die.

Folks, please pray for these poor, deluded people.  That God would give them Light to see the way.

Doesn’t know the definition of genocide

Continuing our See you in the funny papers series (explanation), this one from the Grand Valley State University Lanthorn.

Thinking Logically:  [I] called you out on your shame tactics and blatant disregard for the emotional wellbeing of people who have gone through both the procedure in question … Can you perhaps choose another argument?  I think we all get that you are under the impression that abortion “decapitate and dismembers little human beings” or something along those lines. … Abortion isn’t genocide. Genocide is government sanctioned; there is propaganda (again government sanctioned and supported) demeaning the humanity of the targeted group, and military action is taken to eradicate the ENTIRE group.  Firstly, the government does not sanction abortion; there is massive controversy around the subject.  Secondly, you don’t turn on the television and see advertisements saying, “Eradicate the parasites known as the Unborn!” You don’t leave your house and walk down the street and see posters with demonizing pictures depicting “the unborn” and how we should “eradicate” them.  Thirdly, in saying that it is a genocide you are saying that we seek to eradicate ALL unborn children.  In what universe do you actually think that anyone would eradicate the potential life that fuels and sustains our population on earth?  Another thing is that genocide does rely on mob-mentality, bandwagoning, and most other appeals to people.  Does that sound familiar?

CBR Response:  Thinking Logically, If abortion is just another medical procedure necessary for the well-being of women and society, then why would a picture of it shame anybody?

I repeat the fact that abortion decapitates and dismembers little human beings because that is an important fact that is the crux of the matter.  If you can offer any compelling evidence to the contrary, we would gratefully thank you for the enlightenment and find something more productive to do.  If you could provide a coherent argument for why it is OK to kill some human beings without justification, and give us some rational way to decide who may be killed and who must be protected, then we would gratefully thank you for the enlightenment and find something more productive to do.

Knowing that such simple evidence/arguments would get us to shut up and go away, why don’t you offer them?  You don’t offer such facts nor such arguments because they don’t exist.  To cover up for your lack of facts/arguments, you respond with ad hominem attacks and falsehoods (e.g., preborn humans are not human).

We will offer relevant facts and arguments as long as pro-aborts offer no coherent response.

Your comments are confused because you didn’t read the UN definition of genocide, nor did you read what we said about it.  We use the definition of genocide as stated in United Nations General Assembly Resolution 96 (11 December 1946): “Genocide is a denial of the right of existence of entire human groups, as homicide is the denial of the right to live of individual human beings; such denial of the right of existence shocks the conscience of mankind, … and is contrary to moral law and to the spirit and aims of the United Nations. … The General Assembly, therefore, affirms that genocide is a crime under international law … whether the crime is committed on religious, racial, political or any other grounds …” (source, accessed January 15, 2011)

Note that the action doesn’t have to be government-sponsored in order to be considered genocidal.  The genocide in Rwanda was not government sponsored.

You say that one of the defining characteristics of genocide is the demeaning of the humanity of the target victim group.  True.  Note that we often call a WANTED preborn child a baby, but an UNWANTED preborn child is never a baby, but is rather a fetus, embryo, products of conception, potential life, parasite, not a human, etc.  Can’t get much more demeaning than to call somebody a parasite.  The only difference between the baby and the parasite is that the one is wanted and the other is not. Personhood based on wantedness …  When have we seen that before?

You say that in order for it to be genocide, somebody has to be targeting an ENTIRE group.  With abortion, the entire group being targeted for destruction is UNWANTED, PREBORN children.  Not all preborn children, not all unwanted children, but all children who are both unwanted and preborn may be killed.

How can you say that the government doesn’t sanction abortion?  Haven’t you read Roe v. Wade?  Don’t you know that the abortion industry receives hundreds of millions of dollars from the US government every year?

You said that genocide depends on mob-mentality, bandwagoning, and most other [fallacious?] appeals to people.  You asked if such a characterization sounded familiar.  Yes, it does.

Sibling rivalry and abortion

Abortion is making sibling rivalry reach a level of Biblical proportions

My brother’s death leaves more for me.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

Sibling rivalry.  It happens.  You can even say it’s natural.  But with abortion, it can be dark and disturbing.

“If my mom didn’t have an abortion, I wouldn’t be here today!”  We hear it all the time.  Okie from Georgia Southern U said that because his father coerced the abortion of two older siblings, he was able to raise successful, productive sons later on, of which Okie was one.  In other words, “I’m glad my big brother is dead.  If he had lived, things sure would be different for me!”  Kill or be killed.  Dog eat dog.

As the sister of a dead brother (not because of abortion), this is disturbing to my very core.  I can’t imagine being grateful he’s gone because his death makes my life somehow “better.”  Statements like that ring cold and cruel in my ears.

There’s even a children’s book called Sister Apple, Sister Pig, written to help children rejoice over their sibling’s abortions.  It’s about a boy who is looking for his sister in various places at his family’s farm.  His sister was aborted, and according to the boy’s father,

“…You have some good reasons to not have a sister right here, right now.  Maybe you will have another sister when there is more time, and there is more money.”

See kids, if your sibling hadn’t been murdered, there wouldn’t be enough time and money for you!  In fact, that is the exact conclusion the young boy comes to in the story.  He says,

“I’m not sad that my sister is a ghost!  If you kept my sister, you would be tired, and sad, and mad! … Because we would be wild and loud and sometimes we would fight.  Mama might be scared that she could not buy enough food for us.  Mama might not have enough time to read to me, to paint with me, to play with me, to talk with me … Sister is a happy ghost!”

I’m starting to realize that this is a vital survival mechanism.  How can a child process the news that his own mother or father murdered his own brother or sister, without going completely insane?

Sister Apple, Sister Pig isn’t a story about a boy who has come to healthy acceptance of his late sister’s death.  This is a story about a little boy who rationalizes his sister’s murder to avoid completely losing his mind.  The same can be said of the people we have met, on campus and elsewhere.  When a parent turns against a child, it’s only natural for the remaining children to turn against the victim as well.  This protects him from the shattering effects of cognitive dissonance.  You can’t be pro-slaughtered-baby and pro-slaughtering-parent at the same time.  This is especially true when you are related to both.

Bad comparison?

Will to Power

Holocaust = a sovereign nation exercising its religious and racial “choice,” or “will to power,” as Hitler called it.

by Fletcher Armstrong

Continuing our See you in the funny papers series (explanation), this one from the Grand Valley State University Lanthorn.

Man:  You’re comparing a woman’s right to choose whether or not she wants to carry a potential child to term (and dramatically change her life, cause unforeseen health issues, potentially lead to a bad life for a child, etc) to an event which imprisoned/killed millions of [already born] people and caused the death of countless other via a global war?

CBR Response:  We are comparing killing human beings who are little with killing human beings for any number of other arbitrary reasons.

We are comparing the dehumanization of unwanted preborn children with the dehumanization of other people groups singled out for destruction.  For example, you claim that the preborn child is only a “potential” child, because you want to kill him or her.  Similarly, Nazis said that their intended victims were “untermensch” (subhuman).  Where does that end?  Why not kill infants because they are only “potential” teenagers?

If you think somebody is going to have a bad life, you can kill that person?  Where does that stop?  We all know many people who came from difficult life circumstances; do you think they should be dead?  How can the potential for future difficult life circumstances be used to justify killing anybody?

You mentioned the process of birth?  How does that change anything about that baby?  What is essentially different about a baby 10 minutes before birth and that same baby 10 minutes after?  Why do you believe it is OK to decapitate and dismember the one and not the other?

Perpetrators of genocide almost always discount the humanity of their victims.

The Baby Brigade

A UNC Greensboro student takes a GAP brochure.  Who could resist?

by Jacqueline Hawkins

Sometimes at our GAP display, you will see a gaggle of babies and toddlers, and also moms with strollers. These are members of our “Baby Brigade.”  They make a subtle but powerful pro-life statement.

They change the dynamic in several ways. First, students are less likely to become verbally abusive.  No one likes to use obscene language in front of 2-year olds.

Second, students can see the contrast between death (the stark truth of child murder) and life (the end result when pre-born babies are spared).  When students see women with their own children romping about in the green grass, motherhood doesn’t seem so scary; it looks inviting.

The babies soften the blow of the images.  Christy McKinney, one of the mothers in the Brigade, spoke with a freshman at Tennessee Tech for an hour.  The pictures hit home for this young woman, because she had recently learned that her mother wanted to abort her when she was six months along.  She was very hurt by this and became tearful during the conversation.  Christy let the student hold her 6-month old son, and that seemed to ease her pain.

Are you a mom with babies in tow? Would you like to join the Baby Brigade and make a subtle but powerful pro-life statement during GAP?  Call or e-mail us and we’ll keep you abreast of volunteer opportunities!

Survivor’s pain

Those who survive suffer a unique, tragic pain.

Those who survive abortion suffer a unique, tragic pain.  A student wrote on our free speech board, “I lost a brother and sister to abortions. Remember Hitler’s Final Solution? Same result.”

by Jacqueline Hawkins

As a newbie pro-life missionary, I didn’t quite grasp the emotional damage done to abortion survivors.  I had, perhaps foolishly, assumed that children who just missed the slaughter house by a last-minute decision would be happy that their parents chose life.  I figured they might have a closer relationship with their parents because of their ultimate, life-affirming decision.  That’s a nice thought, right?

But given the testimonies of a few students, I’m starting to realize that things aren’t all happily-ever-afters, smiles and giggles.  The fact that your mother and father — the people that gave you life and hold the sacred duty of protecting and nurturing you — almost killed you …  Well, it’s a revelation that pierces the heart and soul, no matter what the parents’ life-affirming sentiment may be now.

At Tennessee Tech, a young woman told volunteer Christy McKinney that she had recently learned that her mother had wanted to abort her at 6 months.  She felt very hurt and became tearful at times during the conversation.  The only reason she was alive was because her grandmother stepped in and vouched for her.  The pictures really hit home for her.  Who can understand the pain and betrayal this girl felt, besides another survivor?

At Wake Technical Community College, a young woman stared at the picture of the first-trimester victim.  “That was almost me,” she told CBR’s Bill and Jeanette Schultz.  “But it was a botched abortion and I survived.”  The student was not angry about the photos, but she was extremely angry and bitter about what her mother tried to do to her.  This wasn’t a change of heart at the last minute.  Her mother made her choice, the hit man was hired and the execution was completed.  By the grace of God, the young woman escaped with her life.

Throughout the conversation, the girl never smiled and her demeanor was one of disgust and hardness.  She told Bill and Jeanette that she has no relationship at all with her mother and did not want one, ever.  They spoke with her about the need for forgiveness — if only for her own peace of mind.  On this day, it was not possible for her.  However, her pain and anger gave her empathy for her suffering brothers and sisters.  As she departed, she said she would never want this to happen to anyone and that it was good that we were there with the pictures.

How sickening it must be for survivors to live in a society that promoted and even now celebrates their own attempted murder.

Is she really pro-choice?

by Fletcher Armstrong

Continuing our See you in the funny papers series (explanation), this one from the Grand Valley State University Lanthorn.

Sara:  The important part about choice people don’t understand is that it is about giving every woman her own voice to make her own decisions.  If you don’t agree with abortion, don’t get one, but don’t force other women to believe that same things.

CBR Response:  Sara, we all want choices, but the choice of abortion kills another human being, often by decapitation and dismemberment.  If you doubt that, then please watch the video at www.abortionno.org.

You claim to be pro-choice, but forgive me if I doubt you on that.  I don’t know where you are politically, but people on the political left are not pro-choice at all.  I am much more pro-choice than they.

For example, unlike most on the extreme left, I believe Big Government shouldn’t force me to pay for my neighbor’s abortions.  You say, “If you don’t agree with abortion, don’t get one.”  Very clever, but your political allies are doing everything possible to force me to pay for somebody else’s abortions.  How is that “pro-choice”?

Many on the far left believe that if I am in medical school or nursing school, I should be forced to participate in abortions as a condition of getting my medical degree.  I should have no conscience protections.  How is that “pro-choice”?

Unlike many on the left, I think I should be able to choose for myself what kind of medical insurance I buy (or sell).  The current Administration has said that Big Government should decide for me what kind of insurance I can buy and even whether I must take the blue pill or the red pill.  How is that “pro-choice”?

But all choices have limits.  The way I learned it down on the farm, your right to swing your fist ends where somebody else’s nose begins.  When your choices cause death, harm, or risk of harm to another human being, then that is one circumstance in which Government, acting on behalf of civilized society, should step in to protect the weaker from the stronger.  That’s why we have laws against murder, rape, fraud, speeding, dumping toxic waste, etc.

We all want choices, but the choice of abortion kills, often by decapitation and dismemberment, another human being.

BTW, I should point out that slave-owners could make the same argument you made, i.e., “If you don’t agree with slavery, don’t own one.”

Finally, if you can prove that the preborn child is not a living human being, but something less than human, then I’m more pro-choice than anybody.  Can you offer that proof?

Pro-Life On Campus at North Carolina State University

All-star pro-life student Aubrey Griffin exposes the deeds of darkness.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

North Carolina State University student Aubrey Griffin is a pro-life all-star!  The industrious young woman is the President of the NCSU Students for Life (SFL).  Having seen how effective GAP was when we came in 2014, she and her comrades brought us back for an encore performance.

Both days were filled with intellectual discussion and debate.  There was a pro-abort protest group, but they seemed rather halfhearted about the whole thing.  Their presence, although perfunctory, brought even more attention to the pictures!

I love it when a plan comes together!

Pro-Life on Campus at University of North Carolina Greensboro

Jane Bullington addresses members of the huge pro-abort throng at UNCG.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

At high noon of Day 2, they descended upon us with rage and fury.  It was our first time at the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG).

Day 1 of the Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) had been cold and rainy, so almost no one stopped.  But everyone saw the pictures, and they held their response for better weather.  Along with the sunshine, their opportunity for hysteria had now arrived.

They came with notebook paper signs, vulgar chants, and even satanic ritual, but we held our ground and let the signs do the work.  Seasoned GAP veterans said this protest was one of the largest and most vitriolic they had ever seen.  The protesters stayed all afternoon, until we carried away the last sign.

The shouting, jeering crowd was perhaps wearisome at times, but their 5-hour exposure to the GAP display was a huge victory.  If 3 seconds gets the point across, who knows what 5 hours can do?

But it wasn’t just the pro-aborts who responded.  After seeing our signs, Ashton boldly announced that she would organize a new pro-life club on campus.  At the end of the day, 3 brave pro-life students pitched in and helped us break down the display as their peers vented their rage.  Talk about guts!  They had never met each other before, but now they were working on their first pro-life project together!

Pro-Life on Campus at UNCG was a huge success!  Thank you for supporting our work!

Weird for a Christian to cite science?

Science and Christianity CoexistContinuing our See you in the funny papers series (explanation), this one from the Grand Valley State University Lanthorn.

Science Student:  Given that you’re pro-life, I’m assuming that you’re also religious — Weird to see you attempting to cite “science” for something in that context.

CBR Response:  Famous scientists who believed in God: Nicholas Copernicus, Sir Francis Bacon, Galileo Galilei, Rene Descartes, Johannes Kepler, Isaac Newton, Robert Boyle, and many, many others.

According to 100 Years of Nobel Prizes, a review of Nobel prizes award between 1901 and 2000, 65.4% of Nobel Prizes Laureates have identified Christianity in its various forms as their religious preference.  Overall, Christians have won a total of 72.5% of all the Nobel Prizes in Chemistry, 65.3% in Physics, and 62% in Medicine. (source)

Science is a way of discovering truth about the natural world.  Some scientists claim that all phenomena have a naturalistic explanation, but that is a statement of philosophy, not a conclusion of science.

Science can only tell us that the preborn child is both human and alive from the moment of conception.  Science cannot tell us whether killing humans is immoral or not, nor can science tell us which human beings may be decapitated and dismembered and which may not.

See you in the funny papers! Not a murderer.

Answering questions in the field, in the press and on the web.

Answering a question about dehumanization at Grand Valley State University.

Online discussions can be a lot of fun.  When we do it social media, only our friends see it.

But when we do it on a newspaper webpage, most people who read it don’t agree with us.  That is our target audience!  So we monitor and respond to online comments.

We clarify confusion and challenge sloppy reasoning.  We reinforce the visual images these students saw when we were on campus.  Unlike many commenters, we avoid ad hominems and make only rational arguments.

Here begins a series presenting reader comments and our responses on an online article about GAP in the Grand Valley State University Lanthorn.

Annoyed Protester: We support the rights for those to chose what they wish to do with their body and the potential life they carry. … I just do not approve of the way they decided to compare it to genocide and had the nerve to basically call me a murderer because I support the right to choose.

CBR Response:  Annoyed, thank you for your comment.  Our purpose is never to condemn those who may have aborted in the past or those who support abortion.  Our purpose is to clarify the confusion that exists about the baby in the womb and his or her moral status.  We don’t say that you are a murderer, but we do say that you are the victim of a confused culture that has taught you that decapitating and dismembering little human beings can be justified.

For example, you call the baby in the womb as a “potential” life. Science tells us — and your own common sense will bear this out — that the baby in the womb is both human (not a pig, horse, or cow) and alive (not dead but alive and growing).  The abortion industry dehumanizes this child so that they can justify killing him or her.

We compare abortion to genocide because abortion kills 1.2 million children per year, many by decapitation and dismemberment, and some of them by torturing them to death.  Yes, late-term babies can feel excruciating pain.

Is it permissible for Christians to break rules in order to save lives?

Diana Jeminez

Diana Jeminez broke the rules to display this abortion victim photo at Biola University.  A baby was saved and Biola later apologized for their abusive treatment of her.

In recent years, CBR has encouraged students at Christian universities to display abortion victim photos, in spite of demands by university administrators that these images be covered up.  This has included Biola University and Liberty University, but CBR is committed to growing this list.

As Christians, we are commanded to obey those in authority over us (Hebrews 13:17, Romans 13:1), presumably even if, in our opinion, the authorities are in the wrong.  So, therefore, we must ask the question:  Is it permissible for Christians to break rules in order to save lives?

In the case of rules which prohibit students from saving the lives of children on Christian university campuses, the answer has to be an emphatic “Yes!”

We can start with Mark 3:4.  Jesus asked the religious authorities, “Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?”  When babies are dying all around us, when Liberty University parking stickers are seen at nearby abortion mill parking lots on a regular basis, when 1 in 5 women who aborts her child identifies her as a born-again or evangelical Christian, and when the Church leaders are trained to believe that abortion is somebody else’s problem, then we think it’s fair to ask the question, “Which is lawful at Liberty University (or Biola, or wherever), to do good or evil, to save life or to kill?”

And no student has any Biblical obligation to obey school rules which conflict with God’s laws.    God’s law regarding injustice mandates that we intervene in defense of its victims (Isaiah 59:15-16, Proverbs 24:11-12).  Ephesians 5:11 proscribes intervention by “exposing” the deeds of darkness, not covering up those deeds.

CBR has seen countless pregnant students change their minds about killing their children after seeing abortion photos on public university campuses.  Christian university administrations, however, have spent more time and energy stopping the display of abortion imagery than they have ever spent trying to stop abortion.  Publicly, these universities profess to be pro-life.  Christians are scandalized to learn that the unwritten rules at these Christian universities actually censor pro-life speech on their own campuses.  That is an inconsistency that deserves to be exposed and resolved.

Our experience at Biola has been very instructive.  Biola’s treatment of Diana Jimenez can only be described as abusive, even after she had graduated.  Biola has since apologized to Diana, but Biola’s claims that CBR’s video was “edited” and had “given a false impression” can rightly be compared with Planned Parenthood’s response to the CMP videos released in 2015.

In the face of all of this, God has actually used Diana’s courage to save at least one baby’s life.  The following message was posted online:

There are a lot of people bashing Diana right now but first hand I can tell you she did what she was told to do.  I am 20.  A student of Biola and always claimed to be pro-life.  I thought that until I got a positive pregnancy test.  This came after a night of partying just outside the campus and had a one night stand with a youth pastor in training.  I was going to go to Planned Parenthood that day and as I walked through campus her signs made me realize there is a human life in my womb ….  In that moment I went to my dorm room got on my knees and asked that I would have the strength to be my baby’s mom.  STOP saying she didn’t follow her stupid rules.  God came through for me because of her.  (emphasis added)

Matthew 23:23 says, “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites!  You give a tenth of your spices – mint, dill and cumin.  But you have neglected the more important matters of the law – justice, mercy and faithfulness.”  We don’t want to make that mistake.

Abortion victim photos at Liberty University

Liberty University students expose the truth to students who may be very open to understanding what's going on.

Liberty University students expose the truth to their classmates.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

It may seem counter-intuitive to display abortion victim photos at Liberty University (LU), the world’s largest evangelical university.  But these students need the truth, just like everyone else.

Eye-witnesses confirm that cars with LU parking stickers are often seen in nearby abortion mill parking lots.  Obviously, LU people are having abortions.  That doesn’t surprise us, because 1 in 5 women who aborts her child identifies herself as a born again or evangelical Christian.

But when Christians see abortion, they are much less likely to abort their own children.

They are also more likely to understand God’s commandment to be a witness against evil in their own communities.  God’s law mandates that we intervene in defense of its victims (Isaiah 59:15-16, Proverbs 24:11-12).  Ephesians 5:11 proscribes intervention by “exposing” the deeds of darkness, not covering up those deeds.

Despite all this, abortion victim photo (AVP) displays are prohibited on the LU campus.

However, courageous students at LU are displaying them anyway.  At the encouragement of CBR, they have displayed AVPs on several occasions over the past 2 years, most recently during the Fall 2015 semester.  All of these events have been peaceful and quiet.  Compared to their public university counterparts, LU students are less inclined to curse and carry on.  However the students’ most recent display provoked more than one visit from unhappy administrators.

Near the end of the event, the students were approached by the LU police and asked to meet with administrators to discuss their pro-life activism.

Stay tuned.

In a future post, Lord willing, FAB will examine the question of whether it is permissible to break rules in order to save lives.

Planned Parenthood incites violent microaggressions toward black pro-lifers at Mizzou

We ain't got nuttin' better to do than help deas good white folks do they GAP.

We ain’t got nuttin’ better to do than help deas good white folk do dey GAP.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

According to the definition found on microaggressions.com — yes, that is a real website — “Racial microaggressions are brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of color.”

“[Microaggressions] create and enforce uncomfortable, violent and unsafe realities onto peoples’ workplace, home, school, childhood/adolescence/adulthood, and public transportation/space environments.” (source: Microaggressions.com)

If that’s the case, then Planned Parenthood (PP) is guilty of multiple violent microaggressions at the University of Missouri (Mizzou).

At our recent visit to the campus, CBR worked alongside the Life Education and Resource Network (LEARN), a pro-life organization led by black men and women with a message to the black community.  We were there to say that if Black Lives Matter, then ALL Black Lives Matter.

For the record, I am a black woman and also a Project Director at CBR.

But when Mizzou students incited by PP arrived, they were especially disturbed to see us black folks.  “We don’t like that you are tokenizing minorities for your agenda!” they shouted.

Note how the uppity white kids did not speak directly to the black pro-lifers.  They didn’t come to us and say that they were concerned about our presence and the intent of our white co-workers.  Instead, they spoke about us, in our presence, as if we were children at a daycare.  Or perhaps slaves, mindlessly doing the will of our white masters, too stupid to comprehend the conversation going on about us.

How demeaning can you be, to suggest that black people are so stupid, we can’t even decide for ourselves whether to be pro-life or pro-abortion.  If black people don’t act right, it must be the fault of our white masters.

Put Joe in his place, and while you're at it, kill off his kids.

Planned Parenthood:  Put Joe in his place, and while you’re at it, kill his children.

Please, let’s call this what it is … racism, pure and simple.  The PP students viewed us as nothing more than stupid “nigger joes,” unqualified to have our own views.  They were so filled with contempt, they wouldn’t even speak with us directly.  We were beneath them, unworthy to be treated as equals.  So they addressed their comments to our white “masters” (according to their view).

Maybe Blacks really do need a safe space at Mizzou.  No PP allowed, because they just want to kill off the stupid niggers in the womb so that America can be made into their lily-white ideal.

PS:  Planned Parenthood, don’t try to suggest that you didn’t incite this violence against us.  They were carrying your signs.

ALL Black Lives Matter at the University of Missouri

LEARN and CBR team with All Black Lives Matter signs at the University of Missouri.

LEARN and CBR team with ALL Black Lives Matter signs at the University of Missouri.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

The University of Missouri (Mizzou) was recently the epicenter of campus unrest nationally, primarily among the African American student population, but also including others who have felt offended for whatever reason.  The protests at Mizzou were an extension of the “Black Lives Matter” campaign that erupted after a law enforcement officer in Ferguson, Missouri was not indicted for defending his own life against a violent criminal.

At Mizzou, there were unproven allegations of racial slurs.  There were complaints about so-called “microagressions,” which may be loosely defined as any statement whatsoever that could somehow be twisted as potentially offensive to anybody.  Campus administrators were excoriated for failing to respond quickly and decisively enough to these offenses.  They failed, for example, to set up “safe places” for blacks only (a policy once known as segregation).  As a result, the Mizzou President and Chancellor were both forced to step down.

Many conservatives tried to keep a low profile, for fear of being accused of who-knows-what, but not CBR.  We teamed with the Life Education and Resource Network (LEARN), an African American pro-life ministry, to remind students at Mizzou that ALL black lives matter, not just the particular black lives that fit a certain leftist narrative.

Our “ALL Black Lives Matter” campaign, a derivative of our Genocide Awareness Project (GAP), shows students that while they have been standing against injustices that may or may not exist, a huge, can’t-deny-it’s-there injustice has been going on right under their noses — most of the time, with their explicit approval.

On the third day, a sizable protest took place, with students displaying “I stand with Planned Parenthood” posters and engaging in clownish behavior typical of college pro-abort protesters.
