Remembering Uncle Martin

By Dr. Alveda C. King

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was Pro-Life

If you would like to learn more aobut his stance on life, please visit MLK & Planned Parenthood Part 1 and MLK & Planned Parenthood Part 2.

In the midst of television, Skype, radio and print interviews this week leading up to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the March for Life the week after, the media enjoys asking “what would Dr. King say about…?”

What would Dr. MLK say about Michelle Obama being an angry black woman? Uncle M. L. would pray for President Obama and First Lady Obama. I believe that because Uncle M. L. was a preacher, he would encourage the First Lady to “be angry and sin not.” Dr. MLK wanted people to love each other, not label and divide each other. As to being angry? Maybe Mrs. Obama should be angry about the high numbers of abortions in America especially due to the harm being done to Black women and Black babies by the abortion industry. Maybe as a mother she should be angry about the high rates of school drop outs. Maybe she should be angry about the high rates of women in the welfare system today. Maybe my saying this makes me an angry Black woman?

I believe Uncle M. L. would support personhood, life from conception until natural death. I believe he would be shocked about the high rates of abortion in the Black community, and about the money making abortion industry.

How about the Girl Scouts telling a girl she can’t wear a pro-life t-shirt in the office while she is off duty? Or telling mothers that they have no say in whether a boy can be a girl scout? Or promoting sexuality and working undercover with Planned Parenthood to promote a Happy, Healthy and Hot campaign. Actually, if you read Uncle M. L.’s Ebony Magazine Advice column, you can see that he would promote life and sexual purity today.

And what about the new Barbie doll campaign for breast cancer awareness? Uncle M. L. would want women to be whole and healthy of course. I just hope that Barbie doesn’t wear the Komen pink ribbon without including the information that abortion, artificial invasive birth control methods and breast cancer are linked. We want our women whole, healthy and happy, not happy, healthy and hot.

These are just a few “hot” issues leading up to what should be a very eventful first month of the new year. We will have a major election later in the year, and I truly believe that Uncle M. L. would encourage people to elect candidates who fear God and respect life.

Friends, in remembering my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. this season, please pause to consider that he was a man of God, who feared the Lord and cherished His commandments. Like every human being, he was not perfect, but he served a perfect God. My uncle was pro-life. He was pro-family. He loved everyone.

God bless you!

    Thank you, Alveda, for reminding me of exactly who Dr. King was and the manipulation by Planned Parenthood.

    I have a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

    I have a dream that the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

    I have a dream that all people will have the right to their own human life and dignity.

    I have a dream that the unborn children of former slaves will no longer be targeted for abortion.

    I have a dream that that parents of the unborn allow their own legacy to continue growing, that they be raised in peace, that the life of every unborn child be cherished.

    I have a dream that every judge take seriously the demand of justice that all people are entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    I have a dream.

    I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”

  3. Loved your blog! God bless you… <3

    Great to have a day set aside to honor what your Uncle stood for. The equality of everyone.

    I have been trying to find a “LIKE” on FB site that doesn’t involve an “app” download.

    Continue your good works in serving God, and knowing that we are all created in HIS image….

    God Bless,

    Thank you for your kind words. We are all beautiful people but some of us don’t realize it because we are not close to God. God bless!

    Love your website and your love for God and Country.
    May God bless you and watch over you always.
    Would love for you to investigate deeper into the Girl Scouts and who they have in high postions in their organizations…. shocking.

    I have been spreading the word about the Girl Scouts and their ties to Planned Parenthood. A great alternative is American Heritage Girls. they are what the Girl Scouts used to be before they were infiltrated by the abortion lobby. Now they want our young daughters to become sexually active. More business for them. Really disgusting!

    God bless!

    I am a little dismayed. You state repeatedly that your aunt should not have sued MLK’s words, but at the same time you do the same thing? You have more right or wisdom to what he meant or thought than she, his wife, did?

    He may not have agreed to abortion, I personally do not agree with it. But forcing a woman to undergo an unwanted pregnancy, that is slavery. It is what tens of thousands of African women were forced to endure.

    I challenge you to go back and read your bible, and tell me exactly where it states you or anyone has the right to make biblical morals into secular law. You can not, and you and I both know it. So instead you and those like you who would control a woman’s body, will revert to name calling.

    Shame on you.

    John 8:7

    “So when they continued asking him, he lifted himself up, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”

    Philemon 1:14
    “but I preferred to do nothing without your consent in order that your goodness might not be by compulsion but of your own accord.”
