Jim Brown of OneNewsNow reports that the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was among several black pro-life leaders who condemned the disproportionate effect of abortion on blacks during a Feb. 29 gathering in Washington, D.C.
The niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., has used an appearance at a Black History Month event in Washington, D.C., to reject the claim that her famous uncle supported abortion rights for women.
Dr. Alveda King, the author of How Can the Dream Survive If We Murder the Children?, says although her uncle – the late civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. – accepted an award from Planned Parenthood in 1966, the abortion group had a “hidden agenda” at the time. “I don’t want anybody to be confused by thinking that Dr. King could condone the violent death of the little babies, and the violent consequences that women suffer,” King clarifies. “I’m post-abortive myself. I’ve suffered … and it was a secret in my family for too long. And so now we’re here today to speak out on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. Abortion is a racist, genocidal act.”
King was one of several black pro-life leaders who met in Washington yesterday to celebrate their ethnicity and decry abortion and its disproportionate effect on blacks. And during a news conference at the Family Research Council, Dr. Johnny Hunter, president of the Life Education and Resource Network, predicted that at some point in America abortion would be abolished, just like slavery and Jim Crow laws.
“The way of the wicked does not last forever, and that’s why we get to celebrate Black History Month,” says Hunter. “Because all throughout black history [there have] been blacks who have taken a stand no matter where the people were when they got here. By the time they left this earth, we were a little bit better off.”
Hunter declared that in merely three days time in America, the abortion industry “kills more blacks than the KKK ever lynched.”
Jonathan Falwell of the Liberty Alliance adds this in his newsletter:
The dirty secret of Planned Parenthood is this: its founder, a one-time nurse named Margaret Sanger, believed that America needed “to cut down on the rapid multiplication of the unfit and undesirable at home” through methods of eugenics. Merriam-Webster defines eugenics this way: “a science that deals with the improvement (as by control of human mating) of hereditary qualities of a race or breed.”
Much evidence points to Sanger being a racist. To stop the “multiplication” of those she saw as unfit, Sanger sought to halt “medical and nursing facilities to slum mothers,” as she wrote in her book, The Pivot of Civilization. (Of course, we cannot depend on our so-called mainstream media to report on Sanger’s shameful writings.)
[Calling abortion “a racist, genocidal act”] is a stark observation by a woman who has experienced the cruelty of abortion and understands the terrible racist history of the industry’s leading organization (which has made untold millions of dollars through its abortion services).
… Abortion is the cruelest of actions. We must all do more to protect innocent life.
A nation that will allow abortion on demand as a means of birth control is so callous and self-indulgent that there is no atrocity it will not overlook, as long as the atrocity does not intrude on the preoccupations of the pacified majority.
