Killing Off Black Americans

There are some issues that define a generation. For our grandfathers that issue was the Nazi slaughter of the Jews. For their grandfathers the issue was slavery. Our generation faces a similar defining issue. Will you be remembered as those who stood up or vegged out?

Please watch this 2 minute video:

Because of abortion there are 100,000 fewer black Americans each year than the year before. This must stop. Their blood cries out from the ground for justice. God’s wrath will not wait forever. If we do not stand in the gap and intercede for our nation who will?

This morning I heard Lue Engle speak here in Austin for the first time. I wept.

If you know me you know I don’t often cry. But, my heart broke this morning. If you have a few minutes it would bless me  if you would take the time to listen to the message he gave this morning. You can download it here. To copy the mp3 to your computer or iPod download the zip here.

The following information is from an email Jana sent me about the march next week. I will be there. I hope you will come too.

The Crisis

The Second largest abortion clinic in the world is being built at this present moment in Houston, Texas. This six-story Planned Parenthood abortion “super center” is right in the middle of four (4) “super neighborhoods.” Three average to 85% Latino in population and the other is 85% African American.

Planned Parenthood is targeting these minority pro-family communities, both for their finances and the restriction of their populations. But, there is a voice rising out of Houston and out of Texas, declaring, “We don’t want this death camp specializing in late-term abortions in our neighborhoods!”

On Martin Luther King Jr.’s holiday, January 18th, 2010, thousands are gathering to march against this Goliath to pray, fast, and peacefully siege this massive injustice in the spirit of that great liberator Martin Luther King Jr. Key African American, Latino, and political leaders are coming to speak and hold a nationwide press conference challenging this “super center.”

This is a great hour for the Hispanic pro-LIFE people, Catholic and Evangelical, to raise their voices against abortion and for adoption. Public opinion over abortion is shifting radically in America to pro-LIFE at the same time this facility is exalting itself above the humble and oppressed.

We are entering into the 37th anniversary of the “Roe V. Wade” abortion decree of 1973 on January 22, 2010. We are in a ’73/’37 window to reverse that decree. It started in Texas, now let it begin to reverse there.

The Call

We are calling for the pro-LIFE people of Houston, Texas, and America to gather Sunday night, January 17th, 2010 for four hours of prayer for spiritual awakening and justice, from 6:00pm to 10:00pm at Grace Community Church.

On this evening, 1/17, we will be unifying with one voice before God to pray for the Luke 1:17 answer to the killing of our babies and the wounding of our women – “And he will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the rebellious to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

The Call Info:

  • When: Sunday, January 17th Location @ 6:00PM:
  • Where: Grace Community Church South Campus
    • 14505 Gulf Freeway
    • Houston, TX 77034 (map)

Parking on Sunday is limited. Please carpool.

The Siege

On January 18th, at 9:00am on Martin Luther King Jr.’s holiday, we will gather by the thousands to launch a silent prayer march through the streets to the abortion “super center” for the nationwide press conference and prayer stand.

As Martin Luther King Jr. would proclaim it – It is time to “subpoena the conscience” of the nation from the flashpoint of Houston, Texas. Maybe Houston could become the Birmingham of our day to let the unborn go free and spare the pregnant mother the agony of guilt. Maybe out of Houston a great demonstration of compassion could be launched through pregnant mother care with a mass movement of adoption.

Martin Luther King Jr. cried, “I have a dream”. Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr., has eloquently stated, “How can the dream live as long as we kill our children?” God has a dream. He has a dream for America and He has a dream for every mother and every child and a six-story massive abortion facility has never been a part of that dream. Lets end the nightmare and let the dream live.

March on Planned Parenthood

  • When: Monday, January 18th Location @ 9:30 AM:
  • Where: Catholic Charismatic Center
    • 1949 Cullen Blvd.

  1. Planned Parenthood was founded on racist and eugenic beliefs. Do these beliefs exist today in Planned Parenthood? Check out this film and see for yourself. It exposes Planned Parenthood in a BIG TIME WAY !

    Maafa21 : New film exposes Eugenics and Black Genocide from Abortion

    Some claim that the abortion issue is about choice, privacy, women’s rights, or reproductive freedom.

    But that’s just marketing hype.

    In reality, the legalization of abortion was about EUGENICS.

    And now, a stunning new movie lays it all out with incredible documentation.

    The film is called Maafa 21 and it exposes a plan to create “racial purity” that began 150 years ago and is still being carried out right now.

    It’s about the ties between the Nazis, the American eugenics movement and today’s “family planning” cartel.

    It’s about elitism, secret agendas, treachery and corruption at the highest levels of political and corporate America.

    Maafa 21 will show you things the media has been hiding and politicians don’t want you to know.

    So if you’re ready to see the real agenda behind “choice,” fasten your seatbelts …



  2. Thomas,

    I remember picketing the Planned Parenthood near Summit Ministries with you back in the day, and I definitely think putting a stop to abortion is a worthy cause, but I have to say:

    Is it just me or does this seem a little sensationalist? Yes, Margaret Sanger was a bigot. Does that mean that Planned Parenthood has some secret agenda of eliminating minorities today? While I’ll admit it’s within the realm of possibility, I highly doubt it.

    It seems to me that the legality of abortion and the presence of abortion clinics are not the issue. The issue is that women are getting pregnant when they don’t intend to. If we could stop that, the abortion rate would drop to virtually nil. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This applies to both pregnancy and abortion.

    I don’t know why women are getting pregnant when they don’t intend to. Lack of education? Lack of access to contraceptives? I suspect there’s more to it than that. You know who’s in a good position to find out? Crisis pregnancy centers, and, dare I say it, Planned Parenthood.

    If we as Christians really want to put a stop to abortion, I think we ought to be volunteering for Planned Parenthood instead of picketing them. Or, if you find that unconscionable, try working with a Christian crisis pregnancy center.

    Just my two cents.

  3. I was at the Austin and Houston marches with others from the Austin Rhetoric Club, 5 or 6 from my family and 1000s of others.
    Since the mid 1970s, I have been to maybe a thrid of the pro-life marches on the anniversary of Roe v Wade, but have never seen anything like this. In the 70s it was 100s of hopeful. In the 80s numbers were down, in the 90s, about the same… I recall once that maybe 100 were there, and Joe Pojman & Kathey Pendleton the only speakers. Now our numbers are in the thousands, with Senator Dan Patrick, many great speakers, and even Governor Rick Perry as the keynote speaker. In Houston, I estimated around 10,000!
    Inspirational, Growing, Amazing… The Spirit of the Lord was there, I know, I felt Him.
