“If Black life is so valuable, why are we killing our babies?”

LIVE ACTION:  Former Planned Parenthood board member: Defund this ‘racist’ organization.

Dr. La Verne Tolbert is an accomplished professor, author and outspoken advocate for adoption and foster care. She is also a former Planned Parenthood board member turned staunch pro-life advocate who admits that at one time she hated children. Her journey to the truth led her to become a role model for children and an outspoken representative against the agenda of abortion and Planned Parenthood, which she says targets the Black community.

Early in her career, Tolbert, who then went by the name La Verne Powlis, landed a job as editor/reporter for Family Circle Magazine and went on to become the first Black beauty editor of Brides Magazine, where she claims she lived a “very glamorous life in the beauty world.” (In 1979, she authored her first beauty book and became a spokesperson for L’Oreal.)

Due in part to her success as a magazine writer, after joining the Coalition of 100 Black Women in New York, Dr. Tolbert was asked to join the board of Planned Parenthood. Tolbert had been raised in church and her father was a pastor, but she writes, “I knew little about abortion.” In her book she also describes being sought after to join Planned Parenthood: “When a speech I made received media coverage back home, I was greeted with my organization’s applause along with invitations to join two boards – The Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) and Planned Parenthood.”

“In 1975, when I was asked to be a part of the board, I thought, this is a wonderful way for me to volunteer and help the women in my community. This is a great way to give back,” Dr. Tolbert told an audience.

Dr. Tolbert often points out that abortion had just been legalized a few years earlier and many people, including her, were uneducated about abortion and the development of the preborn child in the womb.

Dr. Tolbert says that while she was with Planned Parenthood, she discovered that at one time, the state of New York’s Health Department required a death certificate for each baby that was aborted. “And I thought, death certificates? Well a death certificate is only required if somebody dies.”

“And so, the information that I had learned that it was just a ‘blob of tissue,’ a ‘mass in the uterus,’ was not true.”  READ MORE

  1. We all know if it was mandated, it would be called genocide.

  2. It’s easy to sell abortion as freedom from consequences once you sell the idea that a pregnancy, especially early on, is simply a blob of cells.

    I once thought that until presented with the facts and photos.

    Biggest scam ever perpetrated.

  3. What do I care if blacks want to kill there babies? The alternative is they don’t get aborted and grow up to harass my children, rape my daughter, get preference over my kids for jobs and college admissions and my tax dollars pay their welfare. It’s hard to have any compassion for a group that accuses me of racism when all of the above is true.

  4. I realize these numbers come from Census estimates spanning a few years from 2012 to 2016, but my guess is they are relatively accurate.
    I am not trying to pop any bubbles here but I did five minutes worth of research and discovered the following:
    The racial breakdown in the USA is roughly,

    Black or African American alone, 13.3%
    American Indian and Alaska Native alone, 1.3%
    Asian alone, 5.7%
    Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone, 0.2%
    Two or More Races, 2.6%
    Hispanic or Latino, 17.8%
    White alone, not Hispanic or Latino, 61.3%

    ….and for the sake of this investigation I will disregard all but White, Black & Hispanic….

    The black population: At 41.6 percent, blacks were more likely to participate in government assistance programs in an average month. The black participation rate was followed by Hispanics at 36.4 percent, and non-Hispanic whites at 13.2 percent.

    Based on an estimated 322,000,000 total population, this shakes out to:
    26,054,932 – White
    20,863,024 – Hispanic
    17,815,616 – Black
    on welfare.

    I know, I know…. it is about the percentage of “any” population!
    I thought it was an interesting exercise.
