This Is What Alveda King Said About Abortions In Rape, Incest, and Abuse Cases

AlvedaKingDr. Alveda King, a niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is also a co-founder of the National Black Prolife Coalition. A woman who had abortions in her youth, she now advocates for the unborn.

Dr. King and CURE’s Star Parker marched in Selma, Alabama, last summer to speak for the voiceless and vulnerable unborn (see videos in this BCN post).

“Abortion may be legal, but it is unlawful to God,” Star said to the crowd of pro-lifers. “And we’re going to do something about it.”

Dr. King recently spoke at a Roman Catholic high school, where she talked about civil rights and human rights.

“Women absolutely have a right to choose what we do with our bodies,” she said. “I’ll argue anybody down who says we don’t. But then the baby needs a lawyer. Where’s the baby’s lawyer?”

A student asked her about abortions after rape, incest, or abuse. She said such incidents are “serious problems” but added that there “should be a way to help every person in the world without pain or death. That’s all I’ll say.”

Dr. King wrote an open letter to the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) last year in the wake of the Center for Medical Progress’s undercover exposé of Planned Parenthood selling aborted-baby body parts. An excerpt:

“The National Black Prolife Coalition of which I am a founding member has addressed you before challenging your support of the abortion industry that targets Blacks; those you profess to be protecting and fighting for. You never responded.

“But I thought surely this current gruesome behavior on the part of PPH would be the catalyst for change. I thought to myself, ‘Surely, now the CBC will yank their support of an industry that is involved in the illegal harvesting and selling of body parts of aborted babies. ‘But yet we hear nothing. Your silence is [deafening].

That same summer, Star issued a challenge to the CBC. She and a group of pastors implored the liberal lawmakers to take the lead in asking the National Portrait Gallery to remove a bust of Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder.

  1. What a crock of BS!!

  2. There is no more egregious use of government’s coercive power than allowing the murder of the defenseless unborn. Legal murder is still murder.
