Move-On-Up.org, an organization of black conservatives from around the St. Louis area, are organizing a protest of MSNBC host Touré Neblett, who is scheduled to speak at the Catholic St. Louis University this month. The group objects to his support of abortion and notes the contradiction of a pro-abortion advocate at a Catholic university. Says the news release from organizer Stephanie Rubach:
Pro-lifers of this region are outraged at the appearance of Touré Neblett, (co-host of The Cycle on MSNBC) after his out spoken stance glorifying his personal experience of abortion. Toure’ will be the keynote lecturer for the 2013 Black history month at Saint Louis University, a Catholic Jesuit university. We feel that he does not represent the black community’s core values on issues such as abortion. We also feel that there are many respected leaders that could have been chosen for this honor. Thursday, February 7, 2013 Saint Louis University, Tegeler Hall's Carlo Auditorium 3550 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis MO 63103 MEET @ 6:30 PM – South East Corner of Grand and Lindell Toure’ is quoted as saying “I thank God and country for abortion”. This parallels Margaret Sanger’s vision to exterminate the ‘negro population’. WILL YOU STAND WITH ME?
