Family Research Council jumps on ‘Black Genocide’ bandwagon

The Family Research Council has added its voice and influence to the “Black Genocide” movement this week. In an email circulated to Research Council members, the anti-choice organization blamed Planned Parenthood for the 11 percent decrease in Washington, D.C.’s black population in the past decade. Demographers and actual experts, however, are attributing this shift to the stark polarization in income and education in D.C

In an email circulated to Research Council members, the anti-choice organization blamed Planned Parenthood for the 11 percent decrease in Washington, D.C.’s black population in the past decade. Demographers and actual experts, however, are attributing this shift to the stark polarization in income and education in D.C.

According to The Washington Post, “The black population dropped by more than 39,000 over the decade, down to 301,000 of the city’s 601,700 residents.”

The black population used to be a significant majority in the city. By 1970, seven out of 10 residents were black. While research shows that gentrification, an influx of jobs requiring higher education, and escalating rent and property taxes have led to the decrease in population, the Research Council contends that the cause is access to “free abortions to local women.”

This is what the Research Council is telling their members is happening in D.C.:

According to the latest D.C. census, the number of African-Americans in the city is alarmingly low. In one decade, “the black population dropped by more than 39,000.” Experts say the percentages haven’t been this low since World War II. Do liberals think that’s a coincidence? Obviously, the local Planned Parenthood clinics are doing their job. … If you thought that black children were endangered before, imagine if the city could continue promoting free abortions to local women.

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood, the group that most actively targets African-Americans, is awaiting its federal funding fate. … Help your members take advantage of the opportunity. Contact your Senators and remind them that there are plenty of legitimate health clinics out there that will provide services to women other than abortion. And 99% of them probably haven’t been implicated in child prostitution, sex abuse, or statutory rape!

The “Black Genocide” movement is not new, but it has been getting significant play as one of favorite memes of the anti-choice movement as of late. The movement has been featured in ad campaigns all over the countryincluding Jacksonville. Last week, followers of the movement rallied outside House Speaker Rep. John Boehner’s office and spoke at a faith-based conference in Virginia.

The movement recently saw a legislative victory when Arizona became the first state last month to outlaw race- or gender-based abortions.

The Family Research Council is very influential in the conservative and anti-abortion movement. Every year the organization hosts what it call a “Values Voter Summit.” Already lined up to speak at this year’s conference in October are Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and others.

EPA administrator defends allowing Florida to write its own water pollution rules

The EPA seal (Pic via sentryjournal.com) The Environmental Protection Agency has come under fire for its decision to allow the state of Florida to write its own water pollution rules (known as “numeric nutrient criteria”). EPA Regional Administrator Gwendolyn Keyes Fleming is now firing back, writing that the Agency commends the state Department of Environmental Protection for its draft of a proposed standard.

EPA administrator fires back at critics in op-ed

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson (Pic by USACEpublicaffairs, via Flickr) EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson penned a new op-ed for the Los Angeles Times , criticizing House Republicans desperately seeking to undermine the authority of the agency they have dubbed a “job killer.” Arguing that the environment affects red states and blue states alike, Jackson writes that “it is time for House Republicans to stop politicizing our air and water.” As head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Jackson has faced harsh criticism from House Republicans and GOP presidential candidates who say the agency’s regulations are an undue burden on businesses that have to cut jobs simply to comply with clean water and air rules. Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann  has pledged to end the EPA if she takes office. “Since the beginning of this year, Republicans in the House have averaged roughly a vote every day the chamber has been in session to undermine the Environmental Protection Agency and our nation’s environmental laws,” writes Jackson.

EPA announces hold on nutrient standards if Florida can come up with own criteria

The EPA announced today that it is now prepared to withdraw a portion of its proposed numeric nutrient criteria (a set of standards governing water pollution in inland waters) and delay the portion related to estuarine waters, to allow the state Department of Environmental Protection to develop its own criteria. # From a statement released by the EPA earlier today: # EPA recognizes that states have the primary role in establishing and implementing water quality standards for their waters. Therefore, EPA is prepared to withdraw the federal inland standards and delay the estuarine standards if FDEP adopts, and EPA approves, their own protective and scientifically sound numeric standards
