It is time to end Maryland’s political hypocrisy of proclaiming “Black Lives Matter” on one hand, while advancing a population control plan called “the Negro Project”- begun by the late Margaret Sanger, on the other. 

Sanger is the founder of Planned Parenthood. In 1939 she advanced her “Negro Project” to eliminate, or at least drastically reduce, the Black population by promoting sterilization and birth control in minority communities. 

Eighty years ago, it would have been too radical to promote abortion, but not today! Many pro-abortion elected officials touting their enthusiasm for abortion are simply often manipulated and controlled by the abortion industry, which is macro-managed by Planned Parenthood lobbyists. 

It is time for all of us to wake up from apathy and make non-stop phone calls until elected representatives OPPOSE the egregious abortion bills being debated this week in the Maryland legislature.

We must save Black babies, and all babies, for that matter! 

Consider this: radical abortion bills that are being considered and voted upon this week in the legislature cloaked in sweet-sounding words, such as:

  • “Reproductive Liberty Constitutional Amendment” (HB 1171) will make killing a preborn child a “fundamental right”; therefore, allowing unlimited abortion funded at taxpayer expense and prohibit any elected legislator from introducing any legislation to either regulate or abolish abortion in the state of Maryland ever again! 
  • “Pregnant Person’s Freedom Act” (SB669/HB626) will allow infanticide up through 28 days AFTER birth without any fear of prosecution!
  • “Abortion Care Access Act” (SB 890/HB937) was passed on March 29 by the State senators with a vote of 28-15. It will now move to Gov. Larry Hogan’s desk for a signature. The law will provide up to $3.5 million dollars annually to train physicians and non-physicians on how to kill children in the womb for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy and will provide free abortions paid for by you for Maryland women and any women traveling to Maryland for their abortion!

When will the madness stop?

I had the rare opportunity to interview the doctor known as America’s “Abortion King” who was the father of the America’s industry of abortion.  His name was Dr. Bernard Nathanson, and he cofounded NARAL Pro-Choice America and trained Planned Parenthood’s doctors how to kill children in the sanctuary of their mother’s womb. 

After having served as the medical leader in the 1970s abortion revolution that led to the 1973 Roe v Wade decision, Dr. Nathanson observed his “second” patient on a new technology – real-time ultrasound. When he saw the child in the womb smiling and stretching, he no longer denied the humanity of the unborn child. He deeply regretted deceiving the courts and public through deceptive propaganda and unleashing a culture of death. 

Dr. Nathanson told me in his final interview, “STOP the killing! The world needs more love.” 

I pray Marylanders choose to safeguard God’s gifts of life and love by emboldening every elected representative to OPPOSE these heinous bills!  

The time is NOW for Maryland citizens to halt the aggressive attack on the unborn child which has taken the lives of 63,000,000 American babies. We need to put an end to Sanger’s “Negro Project,” which has stolen the lives of 21,000,000 Black children. 

Every Maryland Senator and Delegate’s phone should ring non-stop as WE THE PEOPLE encourage them to vote AGAINST the bills listed above!

Your phone call to your representative today could make all the difference in the world!

Go to the Maryland Right to Life website and select the “Take Action” button now and make your phone calls every day until victory!
