Transcript:

An attack is ratcheting up against women’s reproductive freedom with an insidious campaign against women of color.

They are going to try to raise hell with this kind of campaign.

Right wing anti-abortion protestors are pushing a conspiracy theory that abortion in the African American community is genocide.

They targeted black people and they made a concerted effort because they want to get rid of black people.

That’s a lie. They don’t care what happens to the child once the child gets here.

They are doing it with a spreading billboard campaign.

This billboards were funded by primarily white people.

A series of pro-life freedom rides.

They’re biggest calling card is shame.

And a documentary.

They are certainly promoting black faces but who is really behind them is the radical religious right.

A special series investigates these charges. Whose behind them and where the money is coming from.

It’s a group of wealthy white men trying to make black women feel ashamed about our choices.
