Judge served on the board of Planned Parenthood and ‘Pro-Kids Inc.’ at the same time

CINCINNATI, November 12, 2014 (TheRightsWriter.com) – Pro-life advocates in Cincinnati say a federal judge who once served on the board of Planned Parenthood has a blatant conflict of interest if he hears a case to determine whether a Cincinnati Planned Parenthood abortion facility will remain open. Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati found the disclosure on a questionnaire filed with the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee when President Obama named Black to the bench in 2010.

But that’s not the only conflict the questionnaire presents.

At the same time that Judge Timothy S. Black was president of Planned Parenthood, he also served on the board of a group called Pro-Kids Inc.

Timothy Seymour Black was director of the Planned Parenthood Association of Cincinnati for three years (1986-1989) and its president in 1988.

During that same period, he served as director and vice president of Pro-Kids Inc. “ProKids’ vision is a safe, permanent and nurturing home for every child,” according to its website. “We work to achieve this vision by mobilizing the Greater Cincinnati area community to break the vicious cycle of child abuse and neglect.” Pro-Kids Inc. is dedicated to advancing the interests of foster children in Cincinnati. Black was the group’s director 1982-88 and its vice president for three years, 1986-89.
