Alveda King: Open Letter to the Congressional Black Caucus, Concerned Black Clergy and other paralyzed leaders

Dear CBC, I am writing to you today because my heart is heavy over the deafening silence coming from you regarding a recent video that has gone viral exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting and selling aborted babies’ body parts.

If they or anyone else had been exposed for harvesting and selling animal body parts, there would be such an outrage from the left and right. “Save the whales! Save the dolphins! Save the doggies and cats!” people would declare. But for some reason it seems to be okay to chop up the unborn babies and harvest their body parts.

It’s been a week since the video that shocked a nation was released and not a word from the CBC.

CBC, I ask you, “Are you so beholding to the abortion lobby that you are totally paralyzed and unable to garner the necessary will to denounce their behavior?”

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 defeating.

My mother Naomi King and I visited the new Center for Civil and Human Rights Museum in Atlanta. There among the treasured artifacts we read “Secrets of Married Happiness,” Uncle MLK’s handwritten sermon about holy matrimony.

There were many displays throughout the museum, not just about MLK. Yet, like your position of silence, there is nothing there about the helpless mothers and babies who are victims of the abortion mills of our times. Their plight screams of human injustice and human trafficking at their work. Yet you remain silent.

For the record, my Uncle MLK was Prolife. Even though his wife attended the awards ceremony where a plaque was attributed to MLK, he didn’t attend. MLK, my Daddy AD King and their father ML “Daddy” King were Prolife. Granddaddy even saved me and one of my children from abortion. Thank God he did.

I became suspicious of the motivation behind PPH awards and grants while investigating the so called MLK acceptance speech for the PPH Maggie Award. My Uncle MLK didn’t write the speech, didn’t attend the ceremony, didn’t believe that abortion was a civil right. Like Mrs. Laura Bush and Mrs. Barbara Bush, Mrs. Coretta Scott King was prochoice in favor of a woman’s right to choose abortion. She accepted the Maggie Award instead of her husband.

During her lifetime, in her own words, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger said:

While the colored Negroes have great respect for white doctors, they can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table… They do not do this with white people and if we can train the Negro doctor at the clinic, he can go among them with enthusiasm and…knowledge, which…will have far-reaching results among the colored people…The minister’s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Yes, Sanger and her Federation targeted and sometimes paid Black leaders – doctors, preachers, lawyers, teachers – with grants and scholarships – to convince them to join her. Does this sound like love and compassion?

Attention CBC (Congressional Black Caucus and Concerned Black clergy). As a post abortive mother, I know first hand the pain abortion can bring. There is no agape love in abortion and trafficking baby body parts. They are hateful and violent deeds.

Matthew 6:24 says, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

Well, CBC, you cannot serve both Planned Parenthood and your constituents. By serving Planned Parenthood you are not only hating the other or despising the other but your position is helping to kill our people.

It’s not too late to put your constituents first, where they belong. Get behind; no take the lead in the investigations of Planned Parenthood. Take the lead in calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. It time to stand up for truth.

Planned Parenthood Scandal Renews Call to “Recall Abortion”

Friday, July 17th, 2015

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

347-286-7277

NEW YORK — Janet Morana, author of the book “Recall Abortion,” said the current controversy swirling around Planned Parenthood and the way it procures and potentially profits from fetal organs will rally Americans to finally recognize abortion for what it is: A harmful product that should be pulled off the shelves.

“We have known for nearly two decades that this is happening both in Planned Parenthood and in other abortion mills. They dissect and package up the hearts, lungs, liver, limbs and eyes of children they kill,” said Mrs. Morana, executive director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. “One the public’s eyes are open, we can’t go back and keep pretending that abortion clinics are just another aspect of health care.”

In “Recall Abortion,” Mrs. Morana interviews doctors who have performed late-term abortions and discusses humane and loving options for parents who learn that their unborn child has a life-limiting disorder.

“Those parents who abort their late-term babies are the ones who are the most traumatized,” she said. “Finding out that an unscrupulous doctor might have determined how to kill their child based on what part brings the best price will be too heart-breaking for many to bear.”

To arrange an interview with Mrs. Morana, send an email to leslie@priestsforlife.org or call Leslie Palma at 347-286-7277. For more information on the book, go to RecallAbortion.com

Planned Parenthood’s Bag of Tricks

Friday, July 17th, 2015

willie parker poster resized

Amidst the scandal of a video that was released by the Center for Medical Progress which shows Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, discussing the selling of body parts of aborted babies, the pro-abortion organization trots out their poster child “heroes” like Dr. Willie “Lynch” Parker as if to say that abortion is okay because this African American doctor, who says he’s a Christian and passionate about women and babies says he’s doing “compassionate” work.

Well Dr. Parker, how can you say that it’s compassionate to kill babies and put their mothers’ health at risk while working with an industry that speaks so callously of harvesting human tissue and challenged by accusations of the despicable, unlawful sale of body parts of aborted babies; and say you are doing God’s will?

I’m outraged over the latest Planned Parenthood scandal. But this is just st one in a whole series of scandals that plagues the abortion industry. And it’s been going on for years.

Remember the infamous Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the abortionist from Philadelphia who was convicted of three counts of 1st degree murder for snipping the spinal cords of babies as his preferred method of abortion? The pro-life movement knew of him and others years before he was exposed. Nobody wanted to listen or enforce the laws on the books. Since then we have been shouting from the rooftops that he was not an isolated case. We have documented other such abortionists in various states including Texas, Alabama, and Maryland to name a few. Still nothing is done about them. It takes a super horrific case before people pay attention.

This whole scandal of selling body parts was first exposed many years ago and Fr. Frank posted a video about it back in 2008. This latest video exposed not only what we already knew was going on but also exposed the degree to which they will go to harvest certain organs, even to the point of performing illegal partial birth abortions and altering abortion methods, all directly from the mouth of a high level employee of Planned Parenthood.

If what Planned Parenthood is doing was being done to monkeys or other animals, there would be a huge outcry. It would be on the front of every newspaper in the country. But the abortion industry is so well insulated because of the sheer amount of money they control, they easily outspend the pro-life movement while spreading their lies.

I have been saying it for years and years and I will keep saying it again and again until the whole world can understand it. We are not in a battle between the pro-aborts and the pro-lifers. No, we’re in a spiritual battle, a battle between good and evil; between the forces of light and the forces of darkness. And this battle is more encompassing that you may think.

Michele Bachmann gets it. In a recent World News Daily article she said,

“Planned Parenthood’s goal has always been about making hundreds of millions of dollars a year off the troubles of young pregnant women.

“Planned Parenthood makes money on birth control, on youth sex education (which doesn’t discourage underage sexual activity), on abortions (as the largest abortion provider in the United States), and now on the illegal trafficking of aborted fetal parts.”

I would add to her statement that all the things she mentioned, birth control, encouraging youth to have sex, abortions, and illegal trafficking of aborted fetal parts are seeds of darkness in addition of human trafficking, racism, violence, and same-sex ‘marriage. All are part of a “three headed monster;”an assault on human life.

The article goes on to quote me,

“It’s all lining up,” said Alveda King, the niece of former civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and head of [African American O]utreach for Priests for Life. “The dots are actually being connected. Remember my Three Headed Monster Report? There is so much that is hidden. It’s time to tell the truth.”

King describes the “Three Headed Monster” as an unholy, diabolical population-control scheme that uses racism, sexual perversion (homosexuality, fornication and adultery) and reproductive genocide in what amounts to a war against God [and the light].

This war against God is transforming out nation to one that has no respect for life. You see all the signs and hastags: #BlackLivesMatter, #BlackWomenMatter, #AllLivesMatter, and #HumanLivesMatter. Yet all the time, violent outbreaks and what my Uncle MLK called “man’s inhumanity to man” continues seemingly unchecked.

Humankind has always struggled with their fallen nature. But in 1963 when prayer was ruled out of America’s schools, and then on January 22, 1973, when the Supreme Court turned its back on God and out nation accepted their Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton rulings that abortion would be legal for any reason throughout all nine months of pregnancy, we began devaluing human life.

Now, 42 years later, we see where the path we chose has taken us. We have taught our people hate, not love. We have taught our people to use violence to get what they want. And unless we drastically change directions, I fear we will find ourselves in a place we can never return from.

When will people wake up and see that evil is driving the abortion industry. I believe that many people have good hearts. Only God knows for sure. Many in the abortion industry really think they are doing the right thing and helping women with their unwanted pregnancies. But they have been deceived by the father of lies. There are some that I believe know exactly what they’re doing and they are the driving force behind the abortion industry; the ones spreading the lies and deceiving those that are trying to help the women.

HOW CAN THE DREAM SURVIVE if we murder our children?

We need to repent for all the innocent blood that has been shed; the babies who have been killed while too many stood by silently as abortionists across America took the babies’ lives; the injured and dying mothers; the broken families. We need to ask God for forgiveness; collectively and individually. We need to ask God to heal our land. We need to PRAY for AMERICA, before it’s too late.

Fr. Pavone: Revelations Add More Evidence to What We Knew: Abortion Industry Sells the Body Parts of the Babies It Kills

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

PriestsForLife

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is calling on Americans and their religious leaders to pay close attention today, and in the coming weeks, to the new evidence that Planned Parenthood is involved in the selling of the body parts of the babies killed by the abortions it provides.

“I have been involved for decades in the effort to expose the evidence that the abortion industry sells the body parts of the babies it kills,” Fr. Pavone stated, “and I welcome this new evidence provided by David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress. The undercover videos and documentation, which have begun to be publicized today, show how people at the highest levels of Planned Parenthood are negotiating the sale of body parts, and adjusting the way they perform abortions so that the body parts are more accessible. This violates both the law and the most basic sense of human decency.”

Fr. Pavone collaborates closely with Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics, who first exposed the sale of baby body parts some 15 years ago, and with Troy Newman of Operation Rescue, who has exposed many criminal activities that occur in abortion clinics.

“We have on our website, BabyBodyParts.com, the images of some of the order forms that were discovered back then — forms that ask that eyes, livers, brains, legs and other body parts be shipped on wet ice to the researchers who want them,” Fr. Pavone explained.

“This activity violates state and federal laws that prohibit the sale of human body parts. Moreover, this new evidence shows that Planned Parenthood is still using the partial-birth abortion procedure, which has also been banned by law at the state and federal level.

“We therefore call on Congress to investigate this activity and to stop federal funding of Planned Parenthood. Moreover, we call on the United States Senate to vote on and pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which will protect many of the babies whose bodies are being cut up and sold in this manner,” Fr. Pavone said.

Priests for Life has set up an action alert urging citizens to call their representatives in Congress to do something about these revelations. Keep informed of this and more at www.BabyBodyParts.com and www.CenterForMedicalProgress.org.

Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Know How to Handle the Truth

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: July 14, 2015

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

NEW YORK — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement this afternoon as the details of the Planned Parenthood marketing of baby body parts continued to become known:

“First of all, the pro-life community has risen to the occasion of publicizing this material. In a number of conference calls that have been held, there has been a strong sense of unity in helping people understand that Planned Parenthood is indeed selling baby parts, and breaking various laws, with the knowledge of its highest executives.

“Second, we want believers to understand that Priests for Life has notified all the Catholic parishes across America of this information, and has asked them to publicize it to their parishioners. We have also asked the parishes to have their people contact their representatives in Congress, calling for hearings into the activity of Planned Parenthood and for an end to funding for the abortion giant.

“Finally, the response of Planned Parenthood to these revelations has been pathetic and laughable. Their Vice President of Communications, Eric Ferrero, tries to paint the cutting out of hearts, livers, eyes and brains as “the highest ethical and legal standards” of “high quality health care providers.” He calls the undercover videotape that was released today ‘heavily edited,’ which is nothing more than dodging the need to respond to what is actually said in the clip.

“He states that ‘similar false accusations have been put forth by opponents of abortion services for decades.’ Priests for Life has been the closest collaborator with Life Dynamics and its President, Mark Crutcher, who originally revealed the sale of body parts some 15 years ago. Nothing in the revelations then, or in the ones today, is anything other than the plain truth — truth which Planned Parenthood and its advocates do not know how to handle.”

Abortion Shockwaves Ripple Out To Those On The Periphery

Monday, July 6th, 2015

SNMAC

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 6, 2015

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

Imagine your friend is planning a bank robbery. Do you agree to drive the getaway car? Do you try to talk her out of it? Do you say nothing?

Now imagine an innocent bystander is killed during that robbery. Are you impacted by that death? Of course you are, whether you were complicit in the robbery or were merely silent. Even if you counseled against it, this death, and the consequences your friend will now face, will weigh on your soul.

In July, Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion, an initiative of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, focuses on the survivors of abortion as well as the family and friends of the women who have had abortions.

The survivors encompass ten different categories, such as those who were almost aborted, and those who had no legal protection while in the womb.

Friends include those who were complicit in the abortion, those who did nothing to try to stop it, those who did try to stop it but failed, and those who found out about the abortion only after the fact. Just like those involved in the bank robbery scenario, everyone who knows a mother who aborted her child is impacted by the loss of that child.

Kevin Burke, LSW, co-founder of Rachel’s Vineyard and an architect of the Shockwaves initiative noted that abortion survivors often suffer from this “extremely important and rarely discussed example of the collateral damage from the abortion blast.”

“Shockwaves was not designed to shame those who played a role in abortion,” said Janet Morana, co-founder of Silent No More. “Instead, it will sound a loving call of reconciliation and healing for all involved in abortion decisions.”

Father Frank Pavone, Pastoral Director of Silent No More and National Director of Priests for Life, explained that “Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion is a year-long international effort to reach all the different groups of people who are impacted when a child dies from abortion. In addition to survivors, those groups include grandparents, siblings, survivors, spouses, abortionists and their staff, and pro-life advocates. This is a call for all of us to grieve the children who have been killed. “

Georgette Forney, co-founder of Silent No More, said all those who mourn the loss of a child to abortion can benefit from the healing resources that can be found at www.AbortionShockwaves.com

“People on the periphery of an abortion decision might be confused about the feelings they are experiencing,” Mrs. Forney said. “Through Shockwaves, we hope to validate and address those feelings.”

Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion was launched in January at the March for Life in Washington, D.C., where the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, led a prayer and gave a blessing in the name of Pope Francis as his personal representative in the U.S.

To arrange an interview with anyone on the Shockwaves team or an abortion survivor who has found healing, call Leslie Palma at 347-286-7277 or email her at leslie@priestsforlife.org

The Campaign began November 11th, 2002. As of February 2015, the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has held 1,436 Gatherings in 17 countries & 48 states with 5,934 women and men sharing their abortion testimonies. Testimonies have also been shared at 104 high schools and universities in the last 4 years, 26 in 2014. There are 2,233 testimonies posted on the Campaign website, with 332 that are shared via video! Currently there are 16,225 people registered with the Campaign representing 77 countries. People who are not ready to join the Campaign, are invited to register their regret. So far, 4,890 women and 573men have said they regret their abortion or lost fatherhood. Another552 women and men have posted memorials to their children.

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit our website: www.SilentNoMoreAwareness.org

Let’s Talk About Abortion: Ever Wondered Who Pays Abortion Doctors’ Medical School Bills?

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

150623 blog image small

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Ever wondered who convinces medical students, health care providers, doctors and the like to abandon the Hippocratic Oath to pursue careers which involve killing babies and maiming women?

They go into medicine to save help heal people; get unsuspecting abortion scholarship, and millions end up dying.

The Hippocratic Oath is a sacred pledge for physicians: to treat the ill to the best of one’s ability, to preserve a patient’s privacy, to teach the secrets of medicine to the next generation, and more.

So according to the oath, in a pregnancy, the doctor would have two patients. Even in cases of rape and incest and human trafficking; knowing that abortion cannot heal but only compound these violations; the doctor has two patients, mother and child.

During the days of Gosnell’s House of Horrors trial, the thought came to me that he, along with the doctor who aborted my second baby, and maybe hundreds of other abortion providers such as Lett in Alabama may have been early victims of phony “medical assistance education grants” that would require that recipients adapt to a eugenicists/genocidal mindset.

I became suspicious of the motivation behind PPH awards and grants while investigating the so called MLK acceptance speech for the PPH Maggie Award. Uncle MLK didn’t write the speech, didn’t attend the ceremony, and didn’t believe that abortion was a civil right. Mrs. Laura Bush and Mrs. Barbara Bush are prochoice. Their presidential husbands are prolife. Same with Mrs. Coretta Scott King and MLK. Coretta Scott King was prochoice in favor of a woman’s right to choose abortion. She accepted the Maggie Award instead of her husband. MLK was prolife.

During her lifetime, in her own words, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger said:

“While the colored Negroes have great respect for white doctors, they can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table… They do not do this with white people and if we can train the Negro doctor at the clinic, he can go among them with enthusiasm and…knowledge, which…will have far-reaching results among the colored people…The minister’s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Sanger is remembered as a popular eugenicist, genocide proponent, and promoter of the development of birth control pills. She was also a cofounder of the notorious sterilization program, The Negro Project; and was a favored consultant with the KKK. She was a forerunner and leader of what today is known as the abortion industry.

Even today, the abortion/ anti-life and anti-natural family lobby spends millions annually to infiltrate and indoctrinate the health care world to push euthanasia, abortion, sterilization and other various forms of “population control.”

In more current reports, mounting evidence of this trend surfaces:

Recently, an anonymous young British doctor undergoing her abortion training writes in the Guardian newspaper, “If I’m honest, I haven’t found it emotionally easy (and I suspect neither have those closest to me!) but I’d never go back and change that decision. Not only have I received excellent tuition, but, perhaps more importantly, I have learnt much about life from the women I have cared for.” She concludes by writing of the end of her day, “I breathe my customary sigh of relief as I close my front door behind me and kick off my shoes. My boyfriend hears the latch and calls from the kitchen to ask me about my day. I mutter something nondescript, skimping on detail, then get straight to the point: ‘How about a glass of wine?’”

Link: http://www.theguardian.com/healthcare-network/views-from-the-nhs-frontline/2015/jun/22/abortion-doctor-learn-life-women

In another report on American students who attend a Cuban medical school on scholarships financed by Pastors for Peace, Breitbart.com notes that one of the graduates of the Cuban school, Carmen Landau, was recorded in a 2013 Live Action News video telling a woman at the Southwest Women’s Options clinic in Albuquerque that having an abortion would be like getting a “flu shot or vaccine.” One of the stipulations for these American students is that when they return to the U.S. from Cuba, they must “practice medicine in poor and underserved US communities.”

Link: http://www.breitbart.com/california/2015/06/13/u-s-med-students-in-cuba-bring-centralized-medicine-push-home/

This “having an abortion would be like getting a “flu shot or vaccine” language sounds suspiciously like the “abortion doesn’t hurt as much as having a tooth pulled” pitch I was given before my abortions in the 1970s. I have since wondered, “Who paid to teach our doctors to kill rather than heal?”

In 1 Kings 10:7 the Bible says that not even half of the truth has been told. Galatians 4:16 asks “am I now your enemy because I tell you the truth?”

Well, it’s time for the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Let’s talk about abortion.

They Had a Dream: The Legacy of Granddaddy King – Father of Martin Luther King

Friday, June 19th, 2015

A GUEST BLOG BY KEVIN BURKE, LSW

King Collage w Names

“Kevin has been a source of insight regarding the impact of and connection to abortion and the role of the father figure in the life of a little girl who grows up to become a mother. I hope that his blog will bless many with the same insight with which Kevin has blessed me.” – Dr. Alveda C. King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life

The King Family shared in a special way in the legacy of triumph and tragedy that marked the Civil Rights movement in the tumultuous decades of the 1950’s and 1960’s. It is widely known that their non-violent, prayerful resistance was a cornerstone of the strategy to dismantle the systemic structures of racism and violence that plagued so many African Americans. Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. and his brother A.D. King were very visible leaders of this movement. They embodied some of the best qualities of manly and fatherly leadership in their struggle for the civil rights of all Americans, especially the weakest and powerless in our society.

Where did these men find the courage and develop those Gospel-rooted values that led them to be such powerful advocates for the oppressed?

A lesser known part of the King Family legacy is the witness of Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. Many years before the Civil Rights movement and his son Martin’s famous “I have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963, Granddaddy King was already a strong advocate for the vulnerable and powerless. Thirteen years before that iconic speech in Washington D.C., Granddaddy King also had his own very special dream.

Dr. Alveda King is the daughter of A.D. King and Niece of Martin Luther King. Alveda gives us a glimpse into the heart and soul of her grandfather:

In 1950 my mother was pregnant with me and scared. She was looking for a doctor to perform a D&C abortion procedure. Granddaddy King told my mother:

“They (Planned Parenthood) are lying to you. That is not a lump of flesh. That’s my granddaughter. I saw her in a dream three years ago. She has bright skin and bright red hair and she’s going to bless many people.”

Research confirms that a father or grandfather’s reaction to an unplanned pregnancy is a significant influence on the mother’s decision to parent or abort the child.(1) Thankfully Granddaddy King stood up and defended the life of his unborn grandchild. Granddaddy and Alveda’s father promised to help her through that first unexpected pregnancy and Alveda was born to A. D. and Naomi Ruth Barber King on January 22, 1951. Over the years, Alveda’s mother recovered from her anger, finding grace in her relationship with Jesus Christ.

Years later the King family would lead millions of African Americans to great victories over the forces of racism. Granddaddy King’s famous sons would peacefully but powerfully advocate for the poor and oppressed African Americans whose civil rights, economic opportunity and God given dignity were being aborted by the institutionalized evil of racism.

Yet they also suffered a number of causalities. A.D. King died in a suspicious and tragic drowning accident a year after the assassination of his brother Martin Luther King. The death of Alveda’s father inflicted a deep wound on Alveda’s heart and soul at the same time the sexual revolution and abortion rights were in rapid ascent. Alveda shares:

During those years of my life, I made some scared and angry decisions, including having two of what was presented to me as “safe and legal abortions.” The first procedure was an involuntary abortion. The pro -abortion philosophy was empowering physicians to use their considerable influence to advocate for abortion. Sometimes they simply took matters in their own hands and boldly played God with vulnerable women and their unborn children.

Shortly before the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 I went to my doctor to ask why my monthly cycle had not resumed after the birth of my son. I did not ask for and did not want an abortion. The doctor said, “You certainly don’t need to be pregnant…let’s take a look.” He proceeded to perform a painful examination which resulted in a gush of blood and tissue emanating from my womb. He explained that he had performed a “local D and C.”

Sadly, the rise of pro abortion feminism was empowering men to embrace values that were radically different than those modeled by Granddaddy King and his famous sons. Rather than defending and protected the powerless entrusted to their care, men were being corrupted by the philosophy and practice of abortion rights and the rhetoric of choice.

Just a few short years after Martin Luther King was assassinated for his mission to protect and empower those oppressed by racism, black fathers were now participating in the death of their unborn black children; the same children that Dr Martin Luther King dreamed would one day live in a country “where children…will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” (Speech of MLK 28 August 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C.)

Alveda: I never was able to process the trauma from that forced abortion. Soon after the Roe v. Wade decision, I became pregnant again. There was adverse pressure and threat of violence from the baby’s father now that abortion was legal and readily accessible. The ease and convenience provided through Roe v. Wade made it too easy for me to make the fateful and fatal decision to abort our child.

Granddaddy King saved Alveda’s life in 1950. Twenty-five years later he once again stood tall and reached out to Alveda, now reeling after 2 unresolved abortion losses, to pull back from the precipice of deeper death and destruction:

Alveda: Granddaddy MLK, Sr. rescued me again in 1975. He and my son’s father promised to help me if I wouldn’t abort my next baby. I believed them, thank God.

But Alveda would still suffer the after affects of her abortion losses. She shares about the Shockwaves of Abortion and their impact on her life and family:

Over the next few years, I experienced medical problems. I had trouble bonding with my son, and his five siblings who were born after the abortions. I began to suffer from eating disorders, depression, nightmares, sexual dysfunctions and a host of other issues related to the abortion that I chose to have. I felt angry about both abortions, and very guilty about the abortion I chose to have. The guilt made me very ill.

My children have all suffered from knowing that they have a brother or sister that their mother chose to abort. Often they ask if I ever thought about aborting them and have said, “You killed our baby.” This is very painful for all of us. Also, my mother and grandparents were very sad to know about the loss of the baby. The aborted child’s father also regrets the abortion. If it had not been for Roe v. Wade, I would never have had that abortion. Thankfully, through God’s merciful healing we continue to recover and heal as a family from the pain and loss of those abortion losses.

When you look at the sacrifice and legacy of the King family in their battle for racial equality and justice, it is truly an abomination for Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocates to spread the propaganda that abortion is a woman’s civil right. The struggle for civil rights for African Americans was a movement led by men and women who were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice; they were ready to take a courageous stand and if necessary give their lives for those oppressed by racism and violence. Granddaddy King and his sons Martin Luther and A.D. King, and many other brave African American men embodied this model of manhood and fatherhood.

As we come to another Father’s Day celebration, let’s remember these men and emulate their values and sacrifice. Let us pray for those minority communities that have been especially targeted by abortion providers, and the fathers, mothers and families that have been devastated by the Shockwaves of Abortion.

“The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety.”– Dr Martin Luther King

Recently an anonymous 26-year-old graduate student has posted a threat on ProLifeAntiWoman.com declaring that she will have an abortion unless people donate $1 million between July 7 and July 10. She writes that if the money is raised on the website, she will “have the baby, give it up for adoption and every cent of that $1 million will be put in a trust fund for the child, which he or she will have access to when they turn 21.” If $1 million is not raised, she says she will refund what is donated and have the abortion. She writes of her motivation, “I hope to give the American public a concrete example that the conservative right in America doesn’t actually care about the life of a child, they care about controlling the lives and choices of women.”

Talk about flawed thinking. How would giving this angry young woman a million dollars help the millions of butchered women and their babies who have been harmed by legal abortion?

It won’t. God help us.

Please tell this young lady to do her homework. The Prolife Movement already donates hundreds of thousands of prayers, hours and dollars to the Pregnancy Care Center Movement, Women’s Healing and other Women Friendly Causes to help not just one selfish angry woman to get $1 million; but to help thousands of mothers, fathers and their babies to get a new lease on life. For a reality check, mothers generally don’t get paid a million dollars to birth each of their children.

As a post abortive mother of six living children, I promise you I didn’t charge anyone one million dollars to birth them. On the other hand, the abortions cost those babies their lives and a whole lot of pain. See “How can the dream survive.”

This young lady needs a serious reality check. Please visit priestsforlife.org to see who really cares!

Priests for Life leaders to take part in The Selma Project, June 19-20

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW YORK — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Dr. Alveda C. King, full-time Director of African-American Outreach for Priests for Life and niece of Martin Luther King Jr., will join Catherine Davis, founder of the Restoration Project and leader of the Selma Project, for a pro-life prayer rally and march June 19-20 in Selma, Alabama.

The event will use the 150th anniversary of Juneteenth – the oldest known celebration of the end of slavery in the United States – to highlight the tragedy of abortion in the African-American community. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, and Bloody Sunday.

“When my uncle and other leaders marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in 1965, they were marching against the injustice of racism,” Dr. King said. “Today we march because since 1973 the unborn in this country have been denied the most fundamental human right, the right to life.”

Fr. Pavone noted that Dr. King joined the team at Priests for Life in 2003 after the two met at the March for Life and discussed its similarities to the civil rights marches of the 1960s.

“The pro-life movement is the civil rights movement of the 21st century,” he said.

Dr. King noted that Priests for Life and its African-American Outreach led several Pro-Life Freedom Rides in the South in 2010 to draw attention to the way the abortion industry has targeted African-Americans for extinction. By returning to the Pettus Bridge just three months after the anniversary of the 1965 civil rights march there, organizers hope to once again underscore that connection between pro-life and civil rights.

The Selma Project also will highlight the unscrupulous practices of abortionists nationwide, and the fact that abortion is the most unregulated surgical industry. A local abortionist, Samuel Lett, runs the Central Alabama Women’s Clinic, which should be licensed by the state because more than 10 abortions are performed there each month. But Lett denies performing abortions, and although a coalition of pro-life leaders has documented evidence that he does, the Alabama Department of Health has yet to initiate any kind of action against him.

“This Juneteenth has the potential to be the most vibrant and historic observance yet of this important day, because awareness is growing, among blacks and whites alike, of the unspeakable devastation wrought by abortion,” Fr. Pavone said. “Nobody who honors the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., and nobody who claims to admire the civil rights movement, can ignore abortion any longer, or be silent any longer about it. In Selma and across America, the violence must stop now!”

The rally will begin at 7 p.m. CT June 19 at Christ the King Church in Selma. On June 20, marchers will gather on the Selma side of the bridge at 8:15 a.m. CT and walk across the bridge toward Montgomery.
