Ferguson, Planned Parenthood & #BlackLivesMatter
Ferguson and the surrounding St. Louis areas have been an incredible place of unrest following the Grand Jury’s decision to not indict officer Darren Wilson.
During the protests many have seen the slogan “Black Lives Matter” displayed on posters, in hash tags and even t-shirts.

Do black lives matter? Obviously!
Yet, ironically, Planned Parenthood fails to see the hypocrisy of tweeting "#BlackLivesMatter" when they have, through abortion, contributed to:
- the destruction of 16 million black lives through abortion since 1973.
- the death of 31,328 aborted black babies which comprised 42.4% of the total abortions in New York City in 2012.
- the leading cause of African American deaths (363,705), more than all other causes of death combined (285,522).
Yes, black lives matter … but not just when it's convenient for a tweet. They matter now, always and at every stage of life. Through education, ultrasounds and the love of Jesus, our hope at Mosaic PHC is to change and save all lives, including black lives, to truly make a difference in our communities.
