Christians & 'Choose Life Ohio' org condemn Issue 1, Planned Parenthood, eugenicists, abortionists

Updated: Oct 30, 2023

CLEVELAND (CC) - Choose Life Ohio, a bipartisan, volunteer group of community leaders including bishops, pastors, ministers, evangelists, doctors, deacons, a former mayor and others, recently released a letter of interest to the world.

The document boldly declares CLO's opposition to a November 7 ballot measure called issue 1, and to the abortion industry they say has targeted the black community.

"The Black community has been the target of the abortion industry for decades, beginning with the deplorable ideology of racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger, whose Planned Parenthood organization purposefully established abortion mills in minority neighborhoods and targeted our communities for abortions," CLO's letter declares.

A nurse by profession, the late Sanger's legacy has faced declarative criticism and even cancellation for the last few years, due to her unabashed white supremacy views, eugenicist health care policies, and some say, a fiendish and wicked mission to abort black babies beginning around 1916.

At cost, she founded Planned Parenthood and partnered with the well-known devout eugenicist, Bill Gates, Sr., to provide abortion-population control services in New York city's Black communities starting in the early 1900's.

Sanger has been denounced by some of Planned Parenthood's recent leaders, but the organization she established with Gates still offers abortion services to the African American community.

CLO has urgently called on fellow Ohioans to vote no to issue 1, arguing that it is a "life-or-death" matter for the Black community.

More excerpts from their letter:

"As Black faith and community leaders across Ohio who are called to care for God’s people, we urge our fellow Christians, the Black community, and all Ohioans who believe in the inherent value of every person to vote NO on Issue 1 this November. The future of our state, our society, and our race is at stake in this amendment, and we must protect them."

"This is not a party line vote, nor is Issue 1 a Republican or Democrat issue. This is a moral issue and for the Black community in particular, it is a life-or-death matter. Only 13 percent of Ohio’s population is Black, yet 48 percent of abortions undergone by residents of our state are performed on Black women–a tragic and difficult reality that our community cannot ignore."

"Even more alarming is the number of Black children – 20 million – who were killed in the womb between 1973 and the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court last June. That is enough to fill Ohio stadium more than 194 times."

"Sanger's mission was to kill Black babies before they entered the world, and Planned Parenthood and the for-profit abortion industry have allowed that mission to continue to this very day."

"Our faith sustains us every day, and it must now spur us on to defeat this amendment and save countless Black lives in doing so," the document continues. "Together, we must send a message to the abortion industry by stopping Issue 1. We must end the targeting of Black babies and instead promote a culture of life."

A "yes" vote supports amending the Ohio Constitution to:

  • establish a state constitutional right to "make and carry out one’s own reproductive decisions," including decisions about abortion, contraception, fertility treatment, miscarriage care, and continuing pregnancy, and

  • allow the state to restrict abortion after fetal viability, except when “necessary to protect the pregnant patient’s life or health.”

A "no" vote opposes amending the Ohio Constitution to establish the constitutional right to "make and carry out one’s own reproductive decisions."

This is an ongoing story and Christian Commander will cover breaking news related to issue 1.
