Invoking the specter of genocide and Nazi Germany, a group called Sisters for Life held a press conference on Monday to blast Planned Parenthood for offering abortions in Louisville, saying it is targeting African-American women.
“Abortion has become black genocide in this country,” said Angela Minter, president of the predominantly African-American organization that opposes abortion and offers alternative services to pregnant women.
Surrounded by members and several local pastors, Minter said the group supports a lawsuit filed by the administration of Gov. Matt Bevin against Planned Parenthood that accuses it of offering abortions without a license. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky has denied the allegations but suspended offering abortions at its new clinic downtown while it attempts to resolve the licensing dispute with the Bevin administration.
