Alveda King, a Fox News contributor and the director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life, managed to combine a dizzying number of anti-abortion conspiracy theories in an interview with Iowa religious right activist Tamara Scott last month, claiming that Planned Parenthood uses birth control to give African-American women breast cancer so that they will then donate to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which in turn provides breast-cancer screening grants to Planned Parenthood.

King, who has exploited her status as the niece of Planned Parenthood supporter Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in her effort to fight abortion rights, explained to Scott that Planned Parenthood “targets” black women in an elaborate money-making scheme.

“They entice these ladies into their facility knowing that once they get there, it’s a very lucrative experience,” she said. “Because they’re going to give her medicines and birth control shots and pills and things that will expose her to breast cancer. Then she’ll go to Susan Komen, because Susan Koman exchanges money with Planned Parenthood, the money goes back and forth between them. And if she gets pregnant, they’re going to give her an abortion and then they’re going to traffic the body parts of the baby. So they make a lot of money off of black women that are underserved, off of all women.”

“Now make no mistake about it,” she concluded, “Planned Parenthood’s agenda is about money — and eugenics.”

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
