Pro-lifers Protest at NAACP Annual Meeting

When the NAACP met in Los Angeles last week, a coalition of African-American groups were on hand to send a message that the former civil rights organization is no longer relevant to the black community.

Stephen Broden, pastor of Fair Park Bible Fellowship in Dallas and a member of the Black Pro-Life Coalition, was just one of the many demonstrating in L.A.

He complains that the NAACP is on the wrong side on issues such as abortion, the redefinition of marriage, and education in the black community.

In fact Broden goes so far as to charge the NAACP with being on the side of the enemies of the black community. He believes African-Americans need to judge the NAACP — not according to what they’re saying, but through their actions — and turn to other groups that will offer them the truth.

According to the group’s website, The National Black ProLife Coalition is a network of prolife and pro-family organizations committed to restoring a culture that celebrates Life and Family cultivating Hope in the black community. This is the group’s mission statement:

We will promote traditional family values, from a Biblical worldview, to produce strong and healthy families where babies are safe and able to reach their full potential in life. Through education and awareness media campaigns, community events, political action, lobbying and coalition building of prolife and pro-family advocacy groups, we will restore Life, Family and Hope in the black community.
