Say So March for All Black Lives Pricks the Conscience of Philadelphia

It was another incredible march down Broad Street to Philadelphia City Hall on Sunday, October 7, 2018. I joined pro-life African-Americans of all ages, from children to seasoned citizens, to peacefully walk in solidarity as a visible public witness to the plight of preborn Black babies in the City of Brotherly Love, and across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the nation.

The clouds in the sky were a reminder that abortionists and their collaborators in the city of Philadelphia commit half of all the abortions in the entire state of Pennsylvania. They also reminded us that abortionists in the Keystone State perpetrate 42 percent of all their abortions on Black mothers, disproportionately creating a Black genocide in a state where African-American women only comprise eleven percent of all the women in the state.

These literal and figurative clouds did not create a sense of despondency among the marchers, 99 percent of whom were Black. Instead, we marched with a determination that we would expose the truth about the Black Genocide to people on this day who probably never knew about Margaret Sanger’s “ Negro Project ” in the early part of the last century. This was an endeavor by Sanger, the founder of what has become the largest abortion operation in Pennsylvania, the nation and the world. The objective of the program was to restrict, and many believe, to exterminate the Black population.

Citizens of Philadelphia, visitors and tourists on the streets and sidewalks learned about the Black Genocide from the signs the marchers carried, our chants and slogans. A favorite was the one where someone in the March yells, “If you love the babies,” and without skipping a beat everyone shouts together, “say so!”

Speeches and prayers were offered during the pro-life rally at City Hall. Speakers offered prayers for the mayor and city council that hopefully pricked their consciences about the actual destruction of so many innocent preborn babies in their city—especially preborn Black babies. Perhaps they might begin to comprehend the devastating effects that each abortion has on the family it visits. And maybe they will realize that when you teach young people that it is okay to kill helpless babies in their mother’s wombs, what they learn is that it is okay to kill each other on your city streets.

The Say So March began in Washington D.C. two decades ago, launched by the Life Education And Resource Network (L.E.A.R.N.). Under the leadership of the organization’s Assistant Director, the Reverend Clenard H. Childress, Jr., there have been annual Say So Marches in Newark, NJ, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. every autumn. Pastor Childress partners with local Black clergy to organize the Marches. In Philadelphia, the Rev. Dr. Herbert H. Lusk II offers his Greater Exodus Baptist Church for a pre-march worship service and a starting point for the Say So March.

Pastor Childress has done so much to bring the Black Genocide to light in Pennsylvania that the board of directors of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, the state affiliate of National Right to Life, will honor him with the 2018 Pennsylvania Pro-Life Lifetime Achievement Award in Harrisburg on Thursday, October 18, 2018. We are so grateful for all he does to speak the truth about abortion and to expose the Black Genocide. Click here to learn more.
