Dan Forest on Abortion
Claims Planned Parenthood was created to destroy black race
On Planned Parenthood: "There is no doubt that when Planned Parenthood was created, it was created to destroy the entire black race," he said in a video of the speech shared on Facebook. "That was the purpose of Planned Parenthood. That's the truth."
"How the black community can't come together and see that and understand the fight against that, I don't know," he said. How the white community can't come together and see that and fight against it, I don't know either."

Urged vote for Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act
Today, the North Carolina Senate will vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S359), which protects babies after they have survived an abortion attempt. I urge members of the Senate to pass this legislation, for the
House of Representatives to follow suit, and for Governor Cooper to immediately sign it. No matter the circumstance, the life of a newborn child needs to be protected.
