Alveda King: Pelosi Deserves Sanger Award for Trampling on Human Rights; Martin Luther King, Jr. Would Reject It Today

ATLANTA — Dr. Alveda King, director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, reacted today to the announcement that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will receive Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award.

“It’s true that Congresswoman Pelosi deserves Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award – almost no one has done more to promote the killing of innocent babies in the womb than she has,” noted Dr. King. “If Mrs. Pelosi wants finally to take her role as a public servant seriously, though, she will reject the award named after a racist woman who had no problem speaking to a Ku Klux Klan meeting.”

The Sanger Award has been given annually by Planned Parenthood since 1966, when the Rev. Dr. Luther King, Jr., Alveda King’s uncle, was named, but did not personally accept one of the first four citations.

“It’s ironic that Planned Parenthood would extend to my uncle an award for his human rights work,” Dr. King continued. “I can’t think of an organization that has done more to trample upon human rights than Planned Parenthood.”

“Of course, in 1966, Planned Parenthood did not advocate for abortion and its racist roots were not well known,” added Dr. King. “Knowing what we know now and 56 million dead children later, I’m confident that the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., a man who gave his life defending others’ rights to life and liberty, would reject any association with Planned Parenthood.”

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, drew a tsunami of support last year when he wrote an open letter to Mrs. Pelosi, challenging her claim to being a faithful and practicing Catholic while spreading a message that abortion is “sacred ground.”

Regarding her upcoming Planned Parenthood award, he said: “Nancy Pelosi receives this less-than-prestigious award, yet is unable to explain why she supports dismembering children. We should continue to demand that she do so. Sign on to LetterToNancy.com.”

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.

I Stand With Father Pavone (#istandwithfatherpavone)

Pelosi Question Bubble

Fr. Frank Pavone is highly respected for his dedication to the unborn and his determination to fight to end abortion. I am truly grateful that he is not afraid to speak the truth and challenge those that would spread lies.

That is why I’m not afraid to stand with Father Pavone in his latest #LetterToNancy campaign at LetterToNancy.com.

This campaign is really about a whole lot more that simply challenging one politician. It’s really about everyone in America and around the world answering the same question that Mrs. Pelosi is being asked but refuses to answer: “What is the moral difference between what Dr. Gosnell did to a baby born alive at 23 weeks and aborting her moments before birth?”

It’s also bigger than Catholicism or any other religion. It’s about all people everywhere and the belief that life is sacred.

Just as we wish to protect our born children from predators and abuse because they are vulnerable, we must also protect the most vulnerable, those in the womb. They are human beings too and should be protected by law.

The question asked of Mrs. Pelosi was about a 23 week old baby who had ten fingers, ten toes, a beating heart, lungs, eyes, ears, mouth, and a nose. And certainly this baby deserves protection. But I say to you that at 4 months, at 2 months, at 25 days, at 10 days, at conception all those features were already programmed into the DNA and as such was already a human being demanding protection.

So as you ponder the question, don’t be afraid to ask the same question of your Pastor, your friends, your family.

The answer is simply really.

There is no difference between aborting a baby moments before birth and what Gosnell did and a host of other abortionists are doing in abortion mills across this country.

It’s time for the 21st Century Civil Rights Movement to go to the next level. It’s time we Abolish Abortion!

Why Won’t Nancy Pelosi Listen?

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

First, Father Frank Pavone, thank you for having the heart to reach out to Mrs. Nancy Pelosi to remind her of the position of the Catholic Church on the sanctity of life. She says that she is a responsible and respectful Catholic, so maybe she just hasn’t had time to remember the teachings of the Church. How can she say that she is a practicing Catholic when she admits her faith doesn’t line up with the teachings of the church? I pray that thousands will sign on to your open letter to Mrs. Pelosi, and demand some answers to the hard questions you are asking her.

My question is this? Why won’t she listen to the cries of the babies and their mothers who keep dying from abortions? Does she really not care that women and babies are suffering great pain and dying from so called legal abortions? In RECALL ABORTION, Janet Morana tells about all of the dangers that mothers may not even know about when they are considering abortion. After an abortion, the babies usually end up dead, and sometimes mothers die too. Why won’t Nancy Pelosi listen?

Yesterday, Glenn Beck and I were discussing abortion on The Blaze. Glenn tends to just speak from his heart and admit his shortcomings, which is hard to do for most of us. Glenn said that he doesn’t like to deal with the abortion issue. He says it makes it uncomfortable, but when God told him that if he doesn’t deal with how wrong abortion is, God will get someone else to do it. I got the strong impression that Glenn is more uncomfortable with letting God down than not talking about abortion. And as you know, since you are right on the firing line all the time, we need help! We need many more people to join you and address Mrs. Pelosi and everyone else who is avoiding the uncomfortable truth that abortion hurts women and kills babies and sometimes their mothers. I’ll be helping tomorrow during the Tweetfest and I hope others will join in to demand that Mrs. Pelosi answer the questions.

Our friend Kevin Burke keeps telling people about how abortion hurts fathers too, how they regret their lost fatherhood. His blog today is so very compelling. I’m glad that he shared the Flypsyde testimony, and there’ the mention of a trip to California with some of the authors of LIFE AT ALL COSTS. By the way, it is such a blessing for Kevin, me and all the Priests for Life Associates, staff and well wishers to join you in this constant battle for life.

Finally I’ll close after this last news note before this blog begins to sound like a rant. My youngest sons, young men in their early twenties, have been following the Trayvon Martin murder and George Zimmerman’s trial. You may recall that I once said that Trayvon’s death was a “late, late term abortion because he was killed in the prime of life. Too many young people are dying today, the youngest being the babies in the womb.

I know that there are many civil rights battles going on right now, and I am very grateful that people are paying attention to everything from love and marriage, who has the right to vote, who will be able to go to college, how should we treat immigrants, who can have a job and so many other issues. However, I join you in working harder to keep the truth about abortion and the painful impact it has on our families and communities before Mrs. Pelosi and indeed all of our leaders, be they spiritual or political.
