National Black Pro-life Congress sponsored the event, with special guest Pastor Walter Hoye, just freed from jail for holding a sign, "God loves you and your baby," in front of an Oakland, CA abortion mill.
The groups Citizens for a Pro-Life Society and Rock for Life also participated. See YouTube video of speeches.
Many of the thousands of convention attendees were exposed to the truth that the African-American community is being decimated by abortion. The NAACP not only ignores the fact that millions of black babies have been disproportionately targeted for abortion, it supports candidates who encourage abortion.
No Detroit media news outlet covered the protest.

More African Americans need to step up to the plate. Their race is being targeted!Posted by: heather at May 11, 2009 3:39 PM
Right, Heather...and guess which traitor to his race is spearheading the campaign???Posted by: RSD at May 11, 2009 3:48 PM
Who? Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton?Posted by: heather at May 11, 2009 3:53 PM
I think that is a refence to Barry.Posted by: Joanne at May 11, 2009 4:23 PM
I would give anything to meet Walter Hoye now. :).Posted by: Vannah at May 11, 2009 10:30 PM

I bet they would have if Alan Keyes was there with his spongebob doll. Otherwise, ho hum.Posted by: Hal at May 11, 2009 11:02 PM
Hal, there usually isn't any media coverage of RTL events. We don't care. We've got work to do.Posted by: heather at May 12, 2009 8:21 AM
Hal, I've gotta tell you. I resent your chilling indifference when it comes to the life of a child. You are cold and callous. Sorry. It had to be said. Besides, you are a man. You never had to get up on that abortion table, and have a living human being torn out of you. You show very little respect for the hurting women on this blog. Sorry. It's not mild cramping as PP says. From what I have heard, that pain is unreal! You ought to go and hug your wife and tell her that you care. Maybe the 2 of you should discuss your abortions more. I'm sure your wife is hurting more than she lets on.Posted by: heather at May 12, 2009 8:28 AM

Of course you care. That's why you always point it out. (not necessarily "you," heather, but Jill and the others.) The march on Washington, this story. The big mountainside sign at the DNC. Publicity is necessary for a movement like this.
Regarding your other post, I do indeed have respect for women on this blog who are hurting. I have the utmost respect for Carla, Bethany, and others. But I also respect the women here and elsewhere who had an abortion because they felt it was the right thing to do and have no regrets. Those women, and all like them, have a right (in my opinion) to make these decisions without government interference. I know you disagree. That's fine. Do you respect Erin and the choices she made as much as I respect Carla and her views?Posted by: Hal at May 12, 2009 8:51 AM
Hal, the March For Life in DC had little media coverage, yet I still attended. I'm in front of 2 abortion clinics. Thurday, Friday, and Saturday. No media coverage. I'm serving the Lord. Do I like Erin? Yes! However, I don't respect abortion. I just feel that when you downplay things, you are making post abortive women's pain seem trivial.Posted by: heather at May 12, 2009 8:56 AM
Everyone's life has pain Heather. It's not trivial. Sometimes it's unbearable. I try to respect what these women feel, without agreeing that the choice for other women should be restricted or that their experience is universal. If one million American women regret their abortions, that's a lot of people and a lot of regret. There would be 39 million others, however, who were thankful they had a legal option when faced with an unwanted pregnancy. (no one knows the actual percentages, I was just using arbitrary numbers to make a point)Posted by: Hal at May 12, 2009 9:01 AM
Then why did you say that you were here "Just For Laughs" on another thread, Hal?Posted by: heather at May 12, 2009 9:28 AM
Hal, have you actually spoken to the 39 million other women who were greatful? That takes a lot of time, no? Can you provide something in writing that proves that 39 million post abortive women feel relief and happiness? Any idea how many of them may have killed themselves, or how about becoming substance abusers?Posted by: heather at May 12, 2009 12:22 PM
The picture of the little girl hurts my heart. To know that she is only a piece of trash in the eyes of some. I see a lot of black clients at the East side abortion clinic, and I'd say the women there for services are 98% black. It just makes me so sad!Posted by: heather at May 12, 2009 1:05 PM

I'm not laughing at Carla and Bethany, Heather. Some others who shall remain nameless.
Hal, wow! What a zinger! Keep up the great work you've been at for 3 long years.........Posted by: heather at May 12, 2009 9:20 PM
three years already? Seems like only yesterday.....
must go get the kids, check you guys laterPosted by: Hal at May 12, 2009 9:23 PM
So I guess the abortion topic is a real SCREAM, huh? Why didn't I see the humor after all these years?Posted by: heather at May 12, 2009 9:23 PM
it's your reaction to abortion, your reaction to gay rights, your reaction to Obama, your reaction to secular humanism, those things are a scream.Posted by: Hal at May 12, 2009 11:23 PM

"I'm not laughing at Carla and Bethany, Heather. Some others who shall remain nameless."
Hal, will not admit it but he laughs at some of my humor even when it is 'tasteless'.
Just because something is in poor taste doesn't mean it can't make you laugh.
Doesn't mean you will not be embarassed later, but at the time your funny bone may be tickled beyond your control.
Larry the Cable Guy said he ran across a mute fellow with Turette's Syndrome.
The fellow was trying to communicate with sign language but he kept giving Larry the bird. Very distracting.
