San Diego, CA – San Diegans will have the opportunity to voice opposition to Sen. Barack Obama’s radical support for unfettered abortion this Sunday when the Democratic presidential candidate makes a lunch-time appearance at the La Raza Convention downtown. La Raza is the largest Latino civil rights organization.
Obama has been the focus of a widely publicized media campaign by the Christian Defense Coalition that is exposing Obama’s extremist support for taxpayer funding of abortions.
Obama’s appearance at the La Raza Convention is particular ironic, given the recent arrest in San Diego of Bertha Bugarin, a non-medical abortion clinic owner who is charged with 28 felony counts in two counties for committing illegal abortions without a medical license. Bugarin owned a chain of abortion mills that targeted poor Hispanic neighborhoods for exploitation.
“Abortionists are famous for targeting minority communities and those who are most vulnerable. When Obama throws his support behind the abortion industry, he is also tacitly supporting the exploitation of Latinos and African Americans,” said Operation Rescue spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger. “Operation Rescue urges all pro-life supporters in the San Diego area to let their voices be heard in protest of Obama’s extremist abortion policies, and his tacit approval of the abortion industry’s despicable pattern of racial exploitation.”
