Pro-Abortion Blacks Attack Heir to King Legacy: Alveda King Calls for Boycott

In an appeal to America to boycott the abortion industry, Dr. Alveda King, daughter of Reverend A. D. King and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. responded to the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Rights press conference when she said: “It is absolutely ludicrous that abortion supporters would accuse a blood relative of Dr. King of hijacking the King legacy. Uncle Martin and my father, Rev. A. D. King were blood brothers. How can I hijack something that belongs to me? I am an heir to the King Family legacy.”

“I have a right to stand at the Lincoln Memorial on the 47th Anniversary of my Uncle’s “I Have A Dream” speech. The Dream has yet to be realized. That Dream is in my genes and I carry forward in the fight for equality and justice for all blacks, including those in the womb. My dad and my uncle gave their lives to ensure that the day would come when blacks would be judged not by the color of their skin, but the content of their character. If they were here, I know they would stand with me in this fight for the lives of those most vulnerable among us”.

Other African American leaders are joining Alveda in calling for a boycott of the abortion industry.

These people call us the religious right–that’s okay because they are our complete opposite…they are the religious wrong! Which begs the question…what God–if any do they serve?” asked Day Gardner, President of the National Black Pro-Life Union. As for me, I serve the God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac–the great I am…Father of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and all things created. Those of us who serve the one true God acknowledge we are all made in his image. We bow to God’s Word when He says: “Blessed is the fruit of the womb.” If God says children are ‘a reward’, ‘a gift’ and our ‘heritage’, then we must uphold that all children are greatly valuable and desirable to God. So, as I asked before…what God do they serve?”

“More and more of Black Americans understand the eugenic agenda of Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers to control the black birth rate through abortion. And because we understand, we are standing with Alveda King in solidarity, continuing the fight for black life from its earliest beginnings, said Catherine Davis, founding member of the black prolife movement. I grew up understanding that the King family fought for my right to equality, even as they fought, bled and died for my right to life, free of government sanctioned lynching, restraints, and KKK threats. To believe that they would now stand for the destruction of life in the womb, screams against the legacy these great men left for us all.”

“I will stand with Alveda King because she is courageous enough to follow in her uncle’s and father’s footsteps,” said Gardner. The travesty of abortion–especially in the black community is the greatest ‘civil rights’ battle of our time and we must overcome it–we shall overcome it.”

“I have a dream, it is in my genes and I ask all America to stand with me on 8/28 at the Lincoln Memorial and thereafter by boycotting America’s abortion industry,” said Dr. King.

    Sis Alveda,

    I won’t be there physically but my prayers are going with you and all who will be there 8/28 representing the True and Living GOD in a peaceable and GOD-honoring way. My prayer is that this won’t be political but will be as you said, about character. I pray that it will be about the character of CHRIST and that everyone there will HEAR something that will draw them to Christ.

    I am praying for you and everyone’s safety. I’m praying for the stance of LIFE which is inline with the WORD OF GOD.

    Much to pray about….

    Standing with you in Jesus Name!

  2. Thank God for those bold enough to stand on his word and not bow down to the mislead minions. I support you and will keep you in my prayers. May the Lord Bless you and Keep you.

    I will be at the Lincoln Memorial with you. Pray for all involved in the abortion industry, including the promoters and fellow travelers, and all the women, babies and men who will suffer because of the Culture of Death.

    Well, the subject of abortion is certainly very complicated and I can only have sympathy for those women who are in the situation of having to make a decision like that. However, when you stand with Glenn Beck, you are standing against the poor, “the least of these” to have access to health care, good education, jobs and housing. Glenn Beck is a conservative whose goal is to privatize everything and make health care, education, etc. available only to those with enough money to pay a private company whose only concern is how much money can they make. Didn’t you say that Jesus said concern for the least of these is serving Him? Didn’t Jesus throw the money changers out of the temple? Republicans worship at the altar of money changers. Didn’t Jesus say it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to pass into the gates of Heaven? If that’s true, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and many other Republicans will be in a much hotter realm after they pass on.
    You have let your abortion beliefs blind you to every other area of human suffering and are serving those who want to perpetuate social injustice and take advantage of the situation by stuffing even more money in their already bloated bank accounts.

    As a Christian I believe that there is no argument in regards to when life begins… in the whom. I therefore believe that abortion is one of the past century’s greatest tragedies… one which still continues to this day.
    But unfortunately not everyone is a Christian and some atheists or others who have turned their back on their Faith or sold their soul for the promise of wealth- often support candidates that push the pro abortion agenda and not just here but, all over the world.
    But if one looks into the history of abortion it is one that is mired in racism. All of the country’s first abortion clinics were opened in Harlem and in other historically African American neighborhoods. The early proponents for abortion have historically ALL been adamant racists. To this day most abortion clinics (76%) are located in minority communities and the US’ largest abortion clinic (which was just opened 4 months ago) is located in a predominantly Mexican and African American neighborhood.

    Dear Alveda,

    Thanks for carrying forward that precious and bright dream of your uncle MLK.

    Whenever your opponents frown and scowl at you, remember, both God & your uncle are smiling down upon you!
