'Abortionists Target Black Babies' Sign Causes Stir
Local pastor stands by decision to post billboard
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- An explosive message on a Midlands church sign causes controversy over an already sensitive issue: abortion. This time, it's the supposed target audience of abortion that has one local pastor in hot water.
Pastor Patrick Dye of Macedonia Baptist Church in Columbia is getting a lot of attention regarding the topic on his church sign on the lawn outside.
It reads: 'Ultimate Racism - Abortionists Target Black Babies.'
Dye claims there is a planned attack on women of color by Planned Parenthood to have abortions. He cites statistics from widely known pro-life organizations to support his claim. They are numbers Planned Parenthood, the world's largest abortion provider, says are categorically false, as it relates to South Carolina.
