COLUMBIA, S.C. (CBS Charlotte) — A Columbia church is making waves over its pro-life sign.

Pastor Patrick Dye of Macedonia Baptist Church put the phrase “Ultimate Racism: Abortionists Target Black Babies” on a sign outside the church.

“I cannot be silent and just say that’s somebody else’s problem or I’m not dark enough to care about that issue. I can’t do that,” Pastor Dye told WIS-TV. “This is the crime of America.”

Dye told the station that Planned Parenthood is targeting African-Americans to get abortions.

“Planned Parenthood purposely locates in minority communities,” Dye told WIS. “The Planned Parenthood clinic is located at the edge of a white community, but right there within walking distance of the housing project on Forest Drive and Two Notch Road.”

Planned Parenthood says Dye’s comments are farther from the truth.

“[Planned Parenthood] believes in helping all individuals, regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation, make informed decisions about their reproductive health care,” the group told WIS.

Dye says the pro-life message is one of a dozen he posted on the sign outside the church in the past five years.
