Anti-Choice Defend “Lynching” Abortion Flyer in Princeton

Anti-abortion activists and leaders are now coming to defense of highly racially charged literature being posted and passed along on the Princeton campus, depicting nooses and stating “in the new klan lynching is for amateurs.”

From a press release for Students for Life of America:

National Pro-Life and Black Community Leaders responded today to Princeton University’s persecution of a pro-life student who has been passing out informative literature on Black Genocide. The student advertised Maafa 21, a recent Life Dynamics movie on the history of Black Genocide, by posting flyers and hosting screenings of the movie on campus, while also passing out Human Life Review literature to educate her peers.

“My Uncle Martin wrote, ‘The Negro cannot win if he is willing to sacrifice the futures of his children for immediate personal comfort and safety,'” said Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate for Priests for Life. “Look around you. For every three African Americans you see, there’s one who’s not here because of abortion. Infinitely valuable, precious children, brothers, and sisters have been sacrificed for immediate personal comfort and safety. I say, in love, we cannot go on this way.”

Day Gardner, President, National Black Pro-life Union noted, “We must face the truth no matter how painful and unsettling. Abortion kills black children at an alarming rate. We have seen the horrors of abortion in the bloody trash cans behind abortion facilities, in online abortion videos, and in the photographs of dismembered babies. We have seen the killing fields — and we must pray and work in Christ to end the killing of God’s smallest children.”

“The situation occurring at Princeton University Theological Seminary is unacceptable. The fact that the school and its’ students are attempting to silence an important discussion about abortion and accusing pro-life literature of being racist because it tells the truth about black genocide is outrageous,” commented Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life of America, “Make no mistake about it, Planned Parenthood is leading a genocide in the black community. Persecuting a student and telling her that she must remain silent while her peers suffer from the violence of abortion is simply unacceptable.”

Lawson Lipford-Cruz, President of Black Students for Life said, “Babies are the new 2nd class citizens. We are still being lynched, but instead of being hung in a tree, we are lynched in the womb. How is it that a helpless baby can be brutally killed then tossed aside so easily and without consequence?”

Interestingly, although the posters and literature were supposed to be promotions for the Maafa 21 movie, none of the promotional materials for the movie actually use nooses as an image

    More lies to defend lies. This organized cabal of misogynist liars simply turns up the noise machine to spout more lies, over and over again, as if screeching lies as loudly as possible makes them true.


    Birth control and pregnancy control, and unfettered access to reproductive health care options, are statistically and scientifically proven to be highly beneficial to women’s physical and mental well-being. They are proven to be a major boon in breaking the cycle of poverty. They are proven to be a major boon in women’s ability to secure educational and career opportunities.


    And from the paragraph above, you see EXACTLY why the Christo-Fascist Dominionists spend huge amounts of time, money and effort to repeatedly broadcast their lies on their hyper-amplified noise machine. Female US citizens exercising their full civil and human rights as autonomous full citizens are anathema to their plans, made in conjunction with the 4% who hold more (ill-gotten) wealth than the other 96% of US citizens combined, to destroy the middle class, enslave the poor in poverty and undereducation, and use the poor as slave labor in service to the international military-industrial complex.


    Look up what Pres Eisenhower had to say about the military-industrial complex in his farewell address to the nation at the end of his second term. As one of the generals who worked to defeat Mussolini, DDE would know wherefrom he spoke on the dangers to America of such fasicm.

    Of course, Google is not my friend today. I read an analysis somewhere suggesting that that famous speech gives a wrong impression of Eisenhower & the MIC. He did a lot to help it before he, belatedly (& perhaps wanting to dissasociate himself) gave his warning.

    but the very fact that a politician would state the truth about something, even belated, is so far removed from our modern-day “ethos” where lies and misdeeds are defined by the power elite as “reality”.  

    From Ron Suskind’s interview with a high-level Bu$hCo adviser:

    That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

    But the more I read, the more I weary of these permanent wars and class wars. I have occassional recurring nightmares about being a refugee; sometimes my husband is with me and sometimes he’s dead. Too many people in the world have to deal with much worse than bad dreams. I have too little grace within me to recognize someone realizing he’s made a mistake and apologizing. To me, I just read it as cynical preserving of future reputation. Sorry.

    PS: that Bush-era quote is more than scarey, *shiver*
