In place of the original signs, three new signs have been erected, one on Chamberlayne Avenue, one on West Cary Street and one on Nine Mile Road. They still reference The Negro Project, but just in a different way.
The biggest difference is a change in the wording. Instead of an advertisement reading, "stop the Negro Project," the new signs say, "history calls it the Negro Project. Our community needs to know now!"
The Virginia Christian Alliance is behind the billboards, and spokesperson Terry Beatley had this to say about the new wording:
"Those billboards are a sincere invitation to anybody who wants to come out and learn the truth about the Negro Project. It is not a racist statement. It's actually just the opposite."
Beatley made reference to Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, who in 1939 created The Negro Project. It is now considered to be one of Sanger's most devious ways to reduce the black population in this country.
The Virginia Christian Alliance is a creationist, pro-life, pro-abstinence-only, anti-gay religious organization, and it appears that they are ready to take a stand against women, all women in an indirect way.
Think about it for a minute. One of the issues the Christian Alliance is concerned about is where it's funding is coming from, what can we do to stop it and most importantly, how will it impact legislation in the Virginia General Assembly?
You can mark this writer's words, there will be a piece of legislation coming up next year that new Governor Ken Cuccinelli will sign that outlaws abortions in the state of Virginia. This marks another anti-abortion group's attempt to go after Planned Parenthood while hiding their true intent from the public.
