AIP-endorsed candidates in NC stand for justice and right to life

Candidates in North Carolina endorsed by America's Independent Party are taking a firm stand for ending black genocide and against killing preborn babies. The candidates are Bill Randall, running in U.S. House District 13, and Patricia Ladd, running in N.C. House District 31.

Both candidates are aware of the genocide, documented in the video "Maafa 21." Both candidates' websites link to the www.blackgenocide.org website. Abortion is endorsed by the Democratic and Libertarian party platforms. The Republican Party Platform strongly upholds the right to life, but a number of prominent GOP leaders deny the personhood of the preborn and his or her unalienable right to life (see the Prolife Profiles website).

African-American pastor Dr. Johnny Hunter refers to "Maafa 21" as "not a pro-life film ... it is a justice film." Hunter is the president of Global Life and Family Mission, a ministry dedicated to promoting traditional family values, racial harmony and the survival of children around the world. He also serves as the National Director of Life Education and Resource Network (LEARN), a consortium of life-affirming and pro-family advocates.

The candidates

Randall, a Republican, is running against incumbent Democrat Brad Miller. According to the website OnTheIssues, Miller voted as a representative in Congress as follows:

  • YES on expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines
  • YES on allowing human embryonic stem cell research
  • NO on restricting interstate transport of minors to get abortions
  • NO on making it a crime to harm a fetus during another crime
  • NO on banning partial-birth abortion except to save mother’s life

For a comparison of Randall and Miller on a variety of issues, see "NC-13 US House candidates offer voters a choice."

Ladd, a Republican, is running against incumbent Democrat Henry M. ("Mickey") Michaux of Durham. The NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina PAC website lists Michaux in its 2010 general election endorsements as one of the "pro-choice 2008 incumbents who have championed choice." The Planned Parenthood® Central North Carolina website shows a photograph of Michaux accepting a Responsible Choices Award from a Planned Parenthood official. The caption says, "Representative Michaux was instrumental in allocating additional funding that allows the state's poorest women to access family planning services." Planned Parenthood's history and activities are exposed in "Maafa 21."

Randall and Ladd both responded to the 2010 North Carolina Family Policy Council questionnaire. Their responses are posted at ncfamily.org/voterguide2010/us-congressional/house.php?districtInput=13 and ncfamily.org/voterguide2010/nc/nc.php?raceInput=House&&districtInput=31. Neither Miller nor Michaux responded to the questionnaire. Michaux also did not respond to the North Carolina Center for Voter Education questionnaire, nor have I received a reply to my emails to him asking him about his stand on issues.
