And people wonder why black families are having a real problem today with the majority of people in prison being black.
Members and leaders from black churches gathered at Howard University School of Divinity [Ed: get that, at a divinity school] this week to discuss sexuality, including how to make churches inclusive for homosexuals and what they say is the failure of federally funded abstinence-only education programs.
A program of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), a nationwide coalition of religious groups trying to advance abortion rights, the 12th annual National Black Church Summit on Sexuality featured speeches by the majority whip of the U.S. House, Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), and former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders.
...attendees were taught how to lobby Congress to end funding of abstinence-only programs in favor of funding for “comprehensive sex education.” [Ed: forcing abortion on demand for kids in elementary school.]
The Rev. Carlton W. Veazey, president and CEO of RCRC, told Cybercast News Service that teaching abstinence isn’t enough to help stop the rise of teenage pregnancies in the black community.
“They (those who oppose abortion) talk about abortion, and I tell them ‘you are the ones who believe in the fetus, you all worship the fetus, and then when the baby really gets here you all abort them,’” Veazey said.
“I say you abort them every time I drive through southeast Washington, where there’s a lack of health care, lack of housing, lack of opportunity. Some of those kids are aborted walking around. And do you know where they go when they are aborted? They go to jail. They go to the criminal justice system. They go to drugs. But these are the same kids that they were so anxious to bring here.
“I am totally committed to a woman’s right to choose, there’s no question,” Veazey said.
