'Maafa 21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America'

    'They were stolen from their homes, locked in chains and taken across an ocean. And for more than 200 years, their blood and sweat would help to build the richest and most powerful nation the world has ever known.

    'But when slavery ended, their welcome was over. America's wealthy elite had decided it was time for them to disappear and they were not particular about how it might be done.

    'What you are about to see is that the plan these people set in motion 150 years ago is still being carried out today. So don't think that this is history. It is not. It is happening right here, and it's happening right now.'

That's the description of Maafa 21, a new documentary produced by Life Dynamics Incorporated, the Texas-based right-to-life organization whose work has made quite an impact in recent years, most notably with the exposes of aborted baby-parts marketing and the abortion industry's concealing of child rape.

Maafa 21 (the word "Maafa" is derived from a Kiswahili word and means "African Holocaust" or "Holocaust of Enslavement") is a well-researched and informative film that shows the connection between slavery/racism, the American eugenics movement — of which Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was an influential figure — Nazi Germany, and legalized abortion.

Consider the following item highlighted in Maafa 21:

    'Since 1973, legal abortion has killed more African-Americans than AIDS, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and violent crime combined. Every week, more blacks die in American abortion clinics than were killed in the entire Vietnam War. And the largest chain of abortion clinics in the United States is operated by Planned Parenthood.'

In addition to showing the follies of the once pro-life Jesse Jackson and the pro-abortion NAACP, the documentary points out that leaders of both the Democratic and Republican parties — the wealthy elites — have formed a "family planning cartel" that does not tolerate dissent when it comes to the issue of population control. And the words and/or actions of past U.S. presidents Lyndon Johnson, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Bill Clinton illustrate that they were at least sympathetic to, if not outright supportive of, the eugenics movement and population control.

Though not appropriate for children, Maafa 21 would be an excellent educational resource for high school and college students (although there is one short segment featuring a filthy Planned Parenthood Web video that you may want to mute).

The bottom line: It's utterly disgraceful that the monstrosity known as Planned Parenthood receives money — and a lot of it — from the U.S. government and various corporations.

Certain pro-life leaders' lives are being threatened.

From a June 16 report on, by Frank Walker (excerpted; click here to see the article in its entirety):

    'In the aftermath of the shooting of late-term abortionist, Dr. George Tiller, American pro-life leaders have been receiving death threats prompting round-the-clock protection from authorities.

    'Jill Stanek, vilified last week at MSNBC, is the Illinois nurse who exposed the practice of abandoning babies that survive abortions. She has tracked and reported on the career of Dr. Tiller for years at her blog. When I asked her this week about her own safety in wake of the shooting, Stanek said that she, along with Troy Newman of Operation Rescue and Fr. Frank Pavone at Priests for Life, had been receiving credible threats from a 'troubled man involved in the abortion industry.' Jill said that this individual is the child of a pro-choice advocate/writer and his mother had aborted several of his siblings.

    'Following the Tiller shooting, the stalker emailed Stanek again. Federal agents are currently monitoring his movements.

    'Pro-life leaders have uniformly been forced to increase security measures to address threats of violence. In recent days Stanek has been placed under continuous police and federal protection following email threats to kill her at church or as she left her home...Stanek also stated that her local pastors have gotten emails calling for her murder at church services....

    'When questioned about security, Fr. Frank Pavone, founder of Priests for Life, said that he needs armed escorts at speaking engagements to guard him against disruptive pro-abortion demonstrators. Individuals from groups such as NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and Catholics for Choice are often bussed in to derail these presentations. Even peaceful prayer vigils, so common to the pro-life movement, can be dangerous. Fr. Pavone was leading a prayer service in Bellingham, WA when someone confronted him and spit in his face. Prior to his appearances, local groups Fr. Pavone calls, 'pro-abortion radicals and anarchists,' often signal their intent to lead violent demonstrations; but in recent days he says he's gotten more serious messages....'
