Washington (Feb 6, 2013)  The NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) is falsely accusing The Radiance Foundation and its chief creative officer, Ryan Bomberger of “trademark infringement” over an ad campaign that exposes the NAACP’s pro-abortion position.

In response, Radiance and Bomberger, who is black, has asked a federal court to declare that the First Amendment protects their exercise of free speech and that their speech does not infringe on any of the NAACP’s trademarks or other rights. The lawsuit does not seek any damages.

Bomberger has written for several years about the NAACP’s pro-abortion actions, satirically referring to the organization as the “National Association for the Abortion of Colored People.”

“It’s ironic that the nation’s oldest civil rights group is threatening to sue a black man for exercising his most basic civil right—the freedom of speech,” said Bomberger. “This threat of legal action from the NAACP is nothing more than a multi-million dollar organization’s attempt to bully someone who’s simply telling the truth. Our inner-cities are crumbling, two-parent married families barely exist, 72.3 percent of our children are born into homes without fathers, and the NAACP wants to silence me for pointing out its support of abortion.”

Planned Parenthood co-sponsors the NAACP’s annual conventions, and the NAACP has shown its support of the nation’s largest abortion chain by frequently defending it.

Former NAACP President Julian Bond once spoke at a dinner for NARAL and praised the fact that black women have high abortion rates.

Sixty percent of viable black pregnancies are aborted in New York City, the home of NARAL and Planned Parenthood. Statistics show that more black babies are aborted in New York City than are born alive: 1,489 black babies are aborted for every 1,000 born alive.

To educate the public, Bomberger, an adoptee and adoptive father, created the www.TooManyAborted.com abortion awareness campaign. The public ad campaign was the first to expose the eugenic racism that gave birth to Planned Parenthood and the tragic alliance that exists between the nation’s oldest civil rights group and the nation’s abortion giant.

Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorney Charles M. Allen with the Glen Allen, Va. firm Goodman, Allen & Filetti PLLC filed Friday in U.S. District Court in The Radiance Foundation v. National Association for the Advancement of Colored People for the Eastern District of Virginia, Norfolk Division.

“The Radiance Foundation has no intentions of being silenced by those who disagree with the facts,” Bomberger declares.

  6. I am wondering if you all have seenthe Documentary Film MAAFA 21 – it is an extremely detailed documentary about the history of Planned Parenthood and has some very interesting details regarding this issue toward the end of the film. WORTH a look.
    – May the Lord go before you and light your path and may He be your rearguard as you seek to honor Him in the earth!
    Blessings to you

  13. Ryan, you are awesome. God bless you, your work, and all the people supporting you. The letter from the NAACP attorneys is truly laughable, and the response of your attorneys is beautiful. We are all with you and will be praying for you as you keep up your heroic fight against PP and the NAACP. I have no doubt that you will be victorious.

  15. Ryan, thank you for standing for truth. May the Lord give you the victory and may the heart’s of the NAACP be changed and their eyes be opened to see to the destructive nature of abortions. May they have enough sense to do a study and find out the effects having abortion does to the psychi and emotion of those who have aborted children and how that has ramifications into the spirit, family, community, esteem, pursuits, etc. How the ease of accessing abortion has caused and a abandonment of family, responsibility and accountability and so much more. Thank you!

  16. I have to congratulate you on your excellent use of your creative talents! It really is impossible to argue against, and you are the perfect person to do this work for Our Lord and His precious children. Just like John the Baptist, who made enemies in “high places” for calling out their sins, you can expect there will be battles, but we can’t always be popular with the world!

  17. Ryan, your work to expose this wicked and deceptive organization and to educate black America on self genocide is exemplary. Press into the battle with courage because the blood of the innocents cry out to God for justice against the NAACP. What a shame.

  20. Ryan and BethanyAs I asked the Lord to give me the right word for you, this is what came to me. Mattew 5:10-16.. Rejoice my brother and sister for GREAT shall be your reward… GREAT SHALL BE YOUR REWARD!!! Strength and Grace be unto both you and safety to your family in this crazy world. We are living in perilous times. May the Lord station angels about you that NO WEAPON can get to you to cause any harm. The day that we met you was such a blessing and we will always remember you and your team. God bless and we truly love you all in Christ our Lord and soon coming King. By the way, our Brandi that was in the accident, is having a surgery on October 1st to get her voice back. I had a dream about this before we even knew it was possible. We rejoice to finally be able to sit down and have a conversation with our daughter. It truly has been a long almost 16 months for us but again God has walked with us in the desert places and from Him we get our strength.
