ARLINGTON, Va., March 23, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- National Pro-Life and Black Community Leaders responded today to Princeton Theological Seminary'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 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?"
Princeton Theological Seminary will be holding a forum on campus tonight to discuss the flyers passed out on campus.
Correction: The student who has come under persecution attends Princeton Theological Seminary and not Princeton University. The Princeton Theological Seminary is no way affiliated with Princeton University and is an independent institution in Princeton, N.J. We apologize for this mistake.
