King Rules - High ResBook Debut:
Today, June 10, 2014

kingrulesbook.com

Dear Readers, this blog hits close to home for me today, so close in fact that I named the first chapter in my new book “Make Home a Priority.” Some of you have been asking me for years, “what was it like growing up with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as your uncle?”

Well dear readers, this book is just for you! Not only do I write about my Uncle ML, but you will meet my daddy AD King, my Granddaddy MLK, Sr., and so many other family members who helped to make sure that I grew up in “The King Family Legacy,” full of faith, hope, and love.

Please take a moment to visit the Thomas Nelson website: kingrulesbook.com to discover not only what the book is about, but also take a look through the photo album where you will have a peek into some precious memories. There are also some endorsements from some friends you might know.

Finally, this is a “how to book” in that many of the principles in the book about finding peace, love, and joy while fighting for justice for everyone, from conception until natural death and everything between.

My friends the Honorable J. C. Watts and Father Frank Pavone graciously opened and closed the chapters for me in their foreward and afterword. All in all, having been inspired by so many questions, I went on a quest to find the answers and discovered that the King Rules were with me all the time.

God bless you!

A Travel Guide to Life: Don’t leave home without it!

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

140514 blog image

A good author should recognize the gift in a colleague, and also acknowledge that gift. I’ll let you be the judge of my penmanship when my newest book KING RULES hits the stand on June 10.

Meanwhile, please read the latest offering, A TRAVEL GUIDE TO LIFE, by my friend Anthony DeStefano. The book, one in a series of TRAVEL GUIDES, is filled with insights and how to’s straight from the pen of one who successfully navigates the ups and downs of life with candor, humility, repentance and humor.

To date this new release becomes a favorite, although all of Anthony’s books are super. My grandchildren adore his children’s books. We recently read A TRAVEL GUIDE TO HEAVEN FOR CHILDREN. Delightful!

On a personal note, I remember praying for Anthony when he was preparing for his father’s transition from this life. He stoically bore it all while helping others to navigate their way through such a trying season.

I also remember Anthony tolerating my monologue about why I’m a Star Trek fan. I was lamenting about how my critics consider my Sci-Fi passion to be sinful. After all, they reason, “Christians don’t have time for fantasy. Jesus is the real deal.”

Yes, Jesus is real, and thank God for His Blood, His Love, His Mercy and HIS Grace. I’m not perfect, and we all need prayer.

I remember Anthony saying: “Alveda, we’re not perfect in this life. You pray for me, I’ll pray for you.”

On that note, I’ll close here with a prayer that you’ll read our books and enjoy them. We all need a good TRAVEL GUIDE. Don’t leave home without this gem. Blessings.

Little Children’s MLK Questions

Friday, January 18th, 2013

And Jesus said, “let the children come.”

I spoke at a local school today for MLK Day. I couldn’t help thinking about the irony of being sanctioned for saying he was a preacher. The children asked “how did he become a preacher” so I gave the history of five generations of King-Williams legacy preachers, of which Uncle ML is most noted.

Not Safe, Moral or Rare

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Tonya_Maria

www.safeandlegal.com lists names of women who are known to be dead by abortion. Add to that list thousands of women whose abortion complications were covered and you will begin to see the tip of the iceberg melt into a quagmire of gigantic proportions.

As a post abortive African American Woman, I can attest that abortion kills babies and harms and even sometimes kills their mothers. I bear the harmful fruit of my own abortions in my own body in the form of phlebitis and other lingering health problems from the abortion surgeries and subsequent abortion drugs called contraceptives also meted out to me by Planned Parenthood during my childbearing years. Read my complete testimony at www.silentnomoreawareness.org.

Planned Parenthood lied to me about abortion. They said abortion is safe. It isn’t. Ask Tonya Reaves. Of course you really can’t talk to her now because her Planned Parenthood abortion killed her and her baby. Her name is in the safe and legal site, along with graphic photos of Marla Cardomone’s autopsy. WARNING – death by abortion isn’t pretty. Marla was a beautiful Caucasian woman, Tonya a beautiful Black woman. Both and many more are DBA.

Planned Parenthood, who also disproportionally targets Black women for abortions with deceptive marketing tactics, is still lying today. Abortion and its related accouterments is not safe, moral, or rare. It’s just legal, legal reproductive genocide. And yet PPH received over $500 Million in US tax dollars last year. Figure that.

Nearly 55 million babies, nearly 20 million of which are African Americans, have been slaughtered by abortion since the landmine Roe vs Wade decision 40 years ago. Count one of my abortions in that number. And the one before that, a legal though barbaric local non-anesthesia DNC which was really an abortion.

The root of abortion is deeper and older than one would think. It’s source stems from slavery as evidenced in the rivalries between the slaves and free. Dr. Karen Stevenson writes in her noted Utrum research paper that on the surface, “It seems that abortion, like all methods of birth control, benefits African-American women because it allows them to exercise their right of autonomy over their own bodies. The fight for legalized abortion as a means of birth control entered the scene later in the fight for women to control their reproductive rights, but abortion itself has always been a “necessary evil” lurking in the background of women’s lives. The issue of reproductive rights has had long lasting roots among African-American women since the era of chattel slavery in this nation. The history of slavery and racism in American culture are crucial to any discussion about black women and choice.”

In studying Dr. Stevenson’s findings we discover a connection between slave women and their master’s wives who were also considered to be chattels in the early and not so pristine history of our great nation. For example, the often revered Thomas Jefferson owned slaves and his caucasian wife and black slave mistress Sally Hemmings were half sisters, sired by the same father.

Such liaisons caused enmity between the Caucasian women and their slaves, wherein the slaves often either chose to abort their mulatto babies to prevent them being born into slavery or they were coerced into abortion or sometimes cruelly forced to abort by jealous wives of slave masters.

Slave mothers were sometimes forced to abandon their own hungry wailing babies to go to the “big house” to breast feed “Massa’s” babies. This often created an aversion to breast feeding in Black women that remains inherent today in many instances. And herein we discover the link between abortion, contraceptives and breast cancer.

So the frustrated slave women often aborted their babies (Pure Breed and Mulatto) voluntarily as an act against sustaining future oppression. The Angry Caucasian Wives often coerced or forced abortion and/or sterilization on their husband’s “Black Beauties” as a means of retaliation against their own brand of experienced oppression.

While many good hearted people like Susan B. Anthony were abolitionists and supported women’s rights; at the same time there were many women who were abolitionists that ended up becoming women rights activists whose bitterness caused them to adopt a deceptive contraceptives and finally an abortion “choice” agenda to exercise what they considered to be rights over their wombs. So now we have a war on babies and the wombs of women often led by women and men controlled by a desire for revenge and avarice.

Abortion kills babies and hurts women which is why I recommend that you read Janet Morana’s book RECALL ABORTION.

Friends, we are dealing with a Three Headed Monster in America – Racism, Reproductive Genocide and Sexual Immorality. My uncle Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. once gave a sermon “Rediscovering Lost Values.” We need to slay the three headed beast and revalue life.

Only then can we began to truly see justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream. I invite you to read our book LIFE AT ALL COSTS to receive further enlightenment on these issues, including how Jesus healed my abortion pain.

“Safe & Legal” Project Highlights Abortion’s Danger to Women

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: January 9, 2013

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

In 1996, then-President Bill Clinton famously said he would like to see abortion “safe, legal and rare.” Seventeen years later, abortion remains legal. It kills more than a million unborn babies a year, so it is certainly not rare. And as a new project called “Safe & Legal” demonstrates, abortion is not safe for women.

“We are bringing graphic visuals to the truth that abortion harms women,” explains Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, which is co-sponsoring this project along with Operation Rescue and Life Dynamics (the group which initiated it).

A new brochure, entitled “Safe and Legal,” shows a beautiful photo of Marla Cardamone, and then her horrific autopsy photos following her death by “safe and legal abortion” at a respected hospital in Pittsburgh, PA.

“I am grateful to Marla’s mom, Deborah, and her husband for their full support of this project and their permission to use these photos,” said Fr. Pavone. “As they know, this project isn’t just about Marla; it’s about the countless women Marla represents, who are killed by abortion without the world ever knowing.”

This past July, Priests for Life and its Director of African-American Outreach, Alveda King, helped bring attention to a young mother, Tonya Reaves, who was killed after a botched second-trimester abortion in Chicago.

“The utter failure of the abortionist to get help for Tonya after she developed complications constitutes nothing less than murder,” Fr. Pavone explained.

The case of Tonya, and many others, will be highlighted along with that of Marla on the special website, SafeAndLegal.com that has been developed for this project.

The brochure about Marla will be distributed widely by Priests for Life and others at this year’s March for Life. Moreover, also at the March, Priests for Life will release Executive Director Janet Morana’s new book, Recall Abortion, which makes the case that abortion is a failed product that should be recalled by the government just as other harmful products have been recalled. This book, along with the annual gathering of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, which Janet co-founded, will reinforce the same message about how abortion harms women.

“We ask everyone to get involved and to spread the truth about Marla and others killed and wounded by abortion,” said Fr. Frank. “As Deborah Cardamone has said often, we have to speak, because if we are silent, we are part of the problem.”

For more info, and for audio and video format of this press release, visit Priestsforlife.org/Marla.

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.

Big Tax Bucks Linked to Abortion Deaths Glaring in the Light of the Tonya Reaves Lawsuits

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

130108 blog image

Last summer, the National Black Prolife Coalition was among the first and most outraged groups to demand justice for the death of Tonya Reaves, a young Black woman killed by abortion in Chicago. For years, women who have been harmed by abortion have been crying out that “abortion hurts women!” Janet Morana is right to lead the crusade to RECALL ABORTION. As we somberly yet purposefully approach the 40 year landmine of the anniversary of Roe VS Wade, let us make no mistake about it. We are ready to continue this battle for LIFE AT ALL COSTS.

Yesterday Operation Rescue wrote an article stating that a second lawsuit had been filed against Planned Parenthood in the death of Tonya Reaves. Again, Tonya Reaves was a 24 year-old woman who went to Planned Parenthood for an abortion which they botched. She was then left bleeding for five hours before an ambulance was called. She was rushed to the hospital where they discovered that the abortion performed by Planned Parenthood was incomplete and she had to undergo another abortion in the hospital to remove the remainder of the baby. But it was too late and Tonya Reaves died later that evening in the hospital.

The first wrongful death lawsuit against Planned Parenthood was filed by Tonya’s family. The second lawsuit was filed on behalf of Tonya’s surviving son, Alvin, by his father. Tonya and her baby died, leaving young Alvin motherless.

Some people will not understand that along with the injustice of Planned Parenthood killing Tonya, another injustice occurred. They killed her baby in her womb as well. So how do we express to Tonya’s family in a loving way that two people died that day?

Because of lack of coverage by much of the media, not too many people are even aware of Tonya’s murder. And despite efforts by the National Black Prolife Coalition through press releases to hold Planned Parenthood accountable, there seems to be an unusual amount of stall tactics where justice should prevail. One can’t help but remember the onslaught of outrage during the Trayon Martin tragedy? Where are all of those outraged Black leaders who were demanding swift justice for the tragic slaying of Trayvon?

Not only are the leaders of the NAACP and other Black voices such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson lacking in conversation surrounding the unjust death of Tonya. Absent also is the outrage over the death of Tonya’s baby and the other 3,699 babies that were killed that day in abortion mills throughout this country. And all the while, Planned Parenthood keeps laughing on the way to the bank while killing hundreds of thousands of babies every year, to the tune of over 50 million dead babies on record since 1973. What’s even worse is that where before 2012, Planned Parenthood was receiving $1 million dollars a day in U. S. tax dollars, yes, around $365 million dollars a year; in 2012 they received over $500 million dollars from our tax coffers. And they are still operating poorly regulated killing centers around this country. And in a few days, people will be observe the 40th commemoration of legal baby slaughter in America.

Yes, abortion is legal; but it shouldn’t be. Abortion is not civil. Abortion is not moral. Abortion hurts women, kills babies, and even kills women like Tonya and the countless others who have died from abortion and/or subsequent complications over the years. Coat hangers are the excuse they hang over the head of the dead babies and maimed women. But as is explained by recording artist Fred Hammond, many women never used a coat hanger even when abortion was illegal. They just had a “medical procedure” called a D&C for a “mysterious female ailment” which was really a baby in the mother’s/patient’s womb.

The abortion industry began saying that they wanted to make abortion legal, safe, and rare. They have successes in one, legal. Safe, not so. Ask Tonya. Rare? Is 54+ million rare?

As for rare, Planned Parenthood’s annual report just released for FY 2011-2012 (calendar year 2011) shows that abortions are not rare with a record number of abortions in 2011 with 333,964. Over the last three years (2009-2011) Planned Parenthood has performed nearly one million abortions (995,687)

As for safe, well, I think we’ve covered that. I would just like to mention that there have been over 345 reported deaths linked directly botched abortions. And that’s just the ones that we know of that have been attributed to the abortions and are documented. Many other deaths are attributed to other causes but are actually a result of abortion complications.

This outrage bears repeating over and over – despite the government’s saying that they do not pay for abortions, Planned Parenthood received a record $542 million in taxpayer funding last year. They can spin it any way they want to, but our tax dollars are funding murder by abortion and not just for babies. Their mothers are dying too. Women are being lied to; told that abortions are safe and are a civil right. And our babies are dying.

I’M OUTRAGED! WE ALL SHOULD BE OUTRAGED! RECALL ABORTION now!

The Power of Knowing

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Blog 130103 Image

During his lifetime, Oswald Chambers spoke of “the power of knowing.” It’s funny what things we as humans want to know, what things we take for granted and what we don’t attempt to discover. The power of knowing that God loves us and wants what is best for us is part of the most powerful “knowing” we can achieve.

This year, yours truly will be focusing on the human heart rather than the human intellect. Seeking Divine answers to how to end abortion for example – if the hearts of fathers and mothers are changed, won’t an end to abortion follow?

Every day, I try really hard to seek the “heart of God,” to discover as much as is possible for me to comprehend, God’s thoughts, God’s ways. The best place for this “seeking” of course is the Bible. The next layer of resource comes from personal meditation and reading meditation books by others. Father Frank’s Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day is part of my “spiritual diet.” I read MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST and more recently the HEAVEN CALLING devotionals. Also, books by my friend Anthony DeStefano on subjects like Heaven and Prayer are insightful.

Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my own book titles. By the way, look for a new book this year!

I’m reading the Book of Genesis this month, and understanding that all of the problems we are facing today – abortion, homosexual lifestyles, violence, avarice, sickness and everything else under the sun – all came after Satan’s dark interception with our forbearers, Adam and Eve, in the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve tried to hide from God after the tricks from Satan took hold of their souls. Sickness and sin came to us by Adam’s fall. Life and forgiveness came to us by the Second Adam, Jesus. Glory to God!

God is Love. Love calls to us from the Light of Heaven. Love calls through the darkness, into the light! Love brings everything out in the open. Love makes provision for us and for the generations to come so that we will never have to hide from God again. So I say OUT OF THE CLOSET – OUT IN THE OPEN – with everything! Then, let’s be open to Jesus so that abortion can end, so that God’s purpose for natural Life, Marriage and Family will shine through!

Recall Abortion offers a unique look at America’s most divisive issue

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

SPACER
recall-abortionAmericans are savvy consumers. When a product does not live up to its promise, we boycott, we sue and finally, we demand a government recall. Forty years ago, Americans were sold a new product: Legal abortion. We were assured that legal, accessible abortion on demand was needed to elevate the rights of women and improve the lives of children. We believed these lies and we lined up outside clinics to buy this product.

But abortion has exploited women, not empowered them. Abortion has allowed us to see children as commodities whose very existence depends on our whim. Abortion has killed more than 50 million unborn Americans and left millions of their mothers wounded, emotionally and physically.

Isn’t it time to recall abortion?

Recall Abortion, the first book by longtime pro-life activist Janet Morana, examines the societal changes that led to legal abortion and the lies that ensure it continues to be one of the most common medical procedures for women. Through research, interviews with medical professionals and testimonies of women who have had abortions, Ms. Morana takes apart the myth that abortion is safe and necessary health-care and shows the abortion industry for what it is: A profit-driven, unscrupulous and often criminal enterprise that victimizes women.

Catholic author and syndicated talk-show host Teresa Tomeo believes Recall Abortion “will put abortion right where it belongs, on a worldwide ‘Hall of Shame’ episode and the top of the recall list.” Wendy Wright of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) says the book “provides a compelling case against the primary selling points for abortion.”

The book will be available Jan. 22 from St. Benedict’s Press and can be pre-ordered now for $20 per copy at PriestsforLife.org/store

In his foreword for Recall Abortion, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, wrote: “If we start with a listening heart and a dose of good will, we can see a common question bridging the pro-life, pro-choice divide and uniting those who care about women. The question is: What does abortion do to those who undergo it? What kind of promises does it make, and does it deliver on those promises?

Those questions, which cut right to the heart of the abortion debate, are answered in Recall Abortion.

Janet Morana is the executive director of Priests for Life, co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, and co-host of EWTN’s “Defending Life” and “The Catholic View for Women.” To arrange an interview, call Leslie Palma or Andre Kim at 347-286-7277 or send an email to media@priestsforlife.org
