Emma Video Journal


There’s an abortion clinic in Raleigh and
my friend was posting video of the protesters. One of them is a black preacher that’s yelling
racial slurs and calling women whores because they’re going into the clinic. What’s most interesting to me is how faith
leaders — black faith leaders — instead of talking about their faith, they always
highlight how black they are. Like this man was talking about how many black
women get abortions and how health clinics are killing black babies. It’s just blaming black women for our reproductive
health choices. That really pisses me off — you don’t
know what these women are going through. As a person of faith, when I hear different
faith leaders say that black women shouldn’t go to Planned Parenthood — I think that
they say that so black women won’t have the power to make our own health care choices.
