That’s when the bizarreness began. A favorite tactic of the pro-abortion crowd is to attempt to suppress pro-life free speech. Only this time the irony was amazingly rich, and made richer by the fact they were so consumed with shouting their rhetoric, they didn’t see it.

“Trust Black Women! Trust Black Women!” was the chant that disrupted the planned lecture about abortion, black genocide and Planned Parenthood. For nearly 20 minutes, before the presentation could even begin, the protesters barked the mantra at the racially diverse audience and me, in particular. Thankfully, campus police removed them after they repeatedly refused to allow, or be part of, the conversation. Those who remained were able to discuss the substance of the epidemic of abortion, eugenics, and the impact on the black community.
But, those 20 minutes of protesting were so oddly surreal.
Last night’s demonstration shows how their strategy is failing. None of the students could answer a single question about basic abortion statistics. I invited them numerous times to join us and engage in conversation. They refused and continued their singular chant. All but 2 of the protestors were white; neither of these black student activists spoke. However, there were plenty of black women in the audience. Predictably, they weren’t the black women that these pro-abortion activists trusted. They didn’t make the cut.
When a black woman in the audience finally stood up to speak, the student protesters refused to let her say anything. It wasn’t until I pointed out the irony that they were chanting “Trust Black Women” but wouldn’t allow a black woman to speak, that they briefly stopped their nonsense.
Here’s the video:
I also thought it quite racist, degrading, and stereotyping when the white pro-abortion student told the black woman appealing for reason (at 4:20 on the video), “You should have access to birth control; your government should supply… [garbled]… collective responsibility…. ” By that statement the white woman was assuming the black woman was poor, engaging in sex, and in need of patriarchal oversight because she couldn’t maintain personal responsibility.
