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.

Turn About is Fair Play in the Pro-Life/Anti-Life Campaign

Friday, November 8th, 2013





STUDENTS_STUDYING

“So you don’t like having the tables turned on you? Well turnabout is fair play.” (Modern translation of an ancient Proverb)

North Carolina anti-life advocates are up in arms over a youth awareness project that shared information regarding abstinence and abortion promoting race targeting tactics. According to Dr. Alveda King, director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, and Dr. Johnny Hunter, national director of pro-life research organization L.E.A.R.N., the media and anti-life advocates are trying to stir up racial tension where none was intended.

“We need to reach out and reach in to inform young students that abortion and unnatural contraceptives are dangerous,” said Dr. King. “Black-in-reach” according to Dr. Hunter, is a “very effective strategy to stop the womb-lynching that is trying to destroy our generations.”
For decades the pro-abortion/pro-choice/anti-life camp has been targeting middle school, high school and college students as well as African Americans and Hispanics with slick marketing campaigns designed to snooker young people into using harmful chemicals and surgical procedures to prevent natural pregnancies and kill babies. Admittedly, their tactics have been pretty successful. So it isn’t surprising that they cry foul when someone beats them at their game.

Here are the facts. Street Samaritans – a charitable organization whose mission is to provide resources to help the homeless and others in need in the Lexington community were conducting a free speech demonstration near a Wake County school. They were passing out literature regarding abortion awareness when parents at Enloe High School received a call from the school about the demonstration.

Outside students were handed literature, some with a message for boys and girls, some with articles written by leading African American civil rights leaders. Inside that “Did You Know?” pamphlet was a message from Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The local news affiliate questioned the students and reported that some said the literature they received from the “Street Samaritans” was different from what others received.

The ministry group displayed pro-life posters and promoted abstinence as well as passing out materials from Human Life Alliance. Bill Schultz, Street Samaritans’ director, told ABC11 that they separately distributed pamphlets to the ethnic groups in order to reach students in a real way.

“We decided we have to get out ahead of their decision making where they find themselves in a circumstance,” said Schultz.

Reportedly some students told ABC11 they found the tactics very offending, saying they wish the message was promoted across the board and not by race. In response, Dr. King pointed out that “Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider who collects US tax dollars to run their awareness campaigns, also designs various materials to appeal to demographic groups according to age, gender, economic status and ethnicity. While such an approach isn’t unusual, I’m sure that there is nothing in either HLA magazine distributed by Street Samaritans that is designed to offend anyone. In fact, the students have been exchanging the materials and enjoying healthy discussions which surely is the goal of Street Samaritans,” she concluded.

Street Samaritans plans to hold another rally at a Wake County school next month where they will distribute all the materials to everyone, regardless of ethnicity or other human distinctions. They have not yet decided which school they will visit next.

Dear Ms. Tierce: Abortion is Not Normal

Thursday, November 7th, 2013





131107 blog image

“Today is a day of trouble, insults and disgrace. It is like when a child is ready to be born, but the mother has no strength to deliver the baby.” Isaiah 37:3

Merritt Tierce, executive director of the Texas Equal Access Fund, when asked what the impact of Texas’s new pro-life laws will be, said that more women will use misoprostol to self-abort, but also, “Many women will continue unwanted pregnancies because they have no other options. Because of the shame and stigma that surround abortion, we may not hear these stories in detail; however we know that, historically, this is what happens when abortion access is restricted.”

Ms. Tierce neglected to speak about the millions of women who have been harmed by botched abortions, and the hundreds of women who have died because of abortions gone bad. She didn’t say that Planned Parenthood’s myth of “safe, legal and rare abortions” is an outright lie. And of course she didn’t speak out about the over 55 million babies dead by abortion since the passage of Roe VS Wade which made abortion legal, lethal and large.

She did however add that “the only way to make abortion acceptable” is for post-abortive women who “just [didn’t] want to have a baby right now” to speak up so that abortion is “normalized.” Once again, she overlooks the thousands of women, myself included, who do speak up about how we regret our abortions. She makes no mention of course of the millions of men who regret lost fatherhood.

Abortion and harmful contraceptives are not normal. They are not natural. They hurt people, and kill people, especially babies. We must act now! We must continue to tell the truth about abortion and its impact on our lives. We must connect the dots between abortion, racism and sexual perversion.

Alveda King On Racism, Reproductive Genocide & Sexual Perversion

Dr. Alveda King to Pope, Clergy, World Leaders and Humanity at Large – Erase and Replace: Hate the sin, love the sinner

Atlanta, GA – In the wake of the Martin/Zimmerman tragedy, in the face of the looming human sexuality debate, on the wings of the promised 50th Anniversary Celebration of the historical “March on Washington” and “I Have a Dream” speech by her famous uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach, Priests for Life, has a word of encouragement for Pope Francis and all world leaders and humanity at large:

“Yes, we are facing difficult days. Yet there is hope ahead. Have faith and love for every member of the human race. It is time to hate the sin and love the sinner. We can set the example with personal and communal repentance, revival, restoration, rebuilding, recovery and renewal.”

For Alveda King, “it’s all about redemption.” Her uncle once said: “We must discover the power of love, the power – the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that we will be able to make of this old world a new world. We will be able to make men better. Love is the only way.”

Looking forward his niece calls for “an eraser to set the record straight. Erase the old ways and let our minds be renewed. Replace the word tolerance with the expression of genuine compassion. Override judgment with mercy and Divine Justice.”

Known for her bold platforms on behalf of the unborn and natural life and family, she explains: “Somehow we have forgotten or perhaps never known the purpose for human life on this planet. The Bible warns us of the challenges of uncontrollable lust unleashed by human sexuality gone amuck. Generally people involved in sexual activity springing from fornication, adultery and even same sex liaisons do not experience the lasting fulfillment that monogamous heterosexual couples do. This is why it is written:

“Matthew 19: 4 “Haven’t you read the Scriptures?” Jesus asked. “From the beginning ‘God made them male and female… This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined (sexually) to his wife, and the two are united into one… Divorce was not what God had originally intended. 10 Jesus’ disciples then said to him, “If this is the case, it is better not to marry!”

“Yet in 1 Corinthians 7:8, it is written that it is better to marry than to burn with lust.”

“Again Jesus also goes as far as to speak to those who are either born without a sexual desire for members of the opposite sex; forced into an alternate lifestyle or choose a life without sexual desire for someone of the opposite sex.

“Matthew 19:11: 11 “Not everyone can accept this statement,” Jesus said; “only those whom God helps. 12 Some are born as eunuchs, some have been made eunuchs by others, and some choose not to marry for the sake of the Kingdom of Heaven. Let anyone accept this who can.” (In the original translation the term eunuch includes castration and other limiting factors surrounding heterosexual sexual unions.)

“In error many have misunderstood these sayings to mean that God is in favor of sexual relationships that interrupt His original plan for procreativity. We forget that God doesn’t create sin, sickness and unnatural human circumstances. If someone is born a certain way, say with an infirmity, a misshapen limb, an unnatural sexual desire — that does not mean that God desired for them to be born that way. That’s why John 3:16 is so important.”

“For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, so that all who believe in Jesus will have eternal life.”

Lamenting over the state of affairs, Alveda says: “Sadly, many have not known of or accepted the precious gift of Jesus and His blood which corrects and eliminates human sin and sadness. Even sadder is that those who have accepted this gift are not willing and humble enough to share this gift with this world, because to share it we must be repentant, transparent and nonjudgmental.”

three headed monster Revised2Alveda insists that “we are dealing with a three headed monster with racism as the first head. Racism is a sin, because it is a deception in that we are not separate races. We are all of one blood.”

“And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth…” Acts 17:26

“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish as fools.” MLK

“The second head of the monster is reproductive genocide. The directive to be fruitful and multiply is a blessing not the curse reflected in the error of artificial and harmful contraceptives and abortion. There are healthy options such as abstinence and natural family planning that do not involve killing women and children.
“The third head is sexual perversion with all of its trappings.

“Somehow we tiptoe around the obvious, never genuinely seeking to separate the sinner from the sin. We can love the one and hate the other.”
“Jude 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. 22 And have mercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.”
“For me, life is a journey and the Bible is my roadmap,” Alveda continues. “The paths and trails have pitfalls, but as long as the light of the glorious Gospel shines, we can see. We may stumble, but we don’t go over a cliff because God’s love, His Son’s blood and His Holy Spirit all keep us safe.”

Making an urgent appeal for unity, Alveda urges: “Now is the time to erase fear, hatred and strife. Time is short so we must be bold. Change and tolerance are steps along the way, but it will take transformation and compassion to get us across the finish line.

“My parents Rev. A. D. King and Mrs. Naomi King joined Uncle M. L. and the hundreds of thousands in Washington, DC 50 years ago. He had a prayer on his lips and a dream in his heart. As we approach the 50th Anniversary of The March on Washington, I plan to observe August 28th with members of my family, friends and the world while praying in my heart that we will all come away transformed by God’s love.”

A Refreshing Testimony from a Childhood TV Personality

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013





130723 blog image

My reaction to Bill O’Reilly’s comments on race problem on America Live

I can’t believe I am agreeing with President Obama and Bill O’Reilly on the same blog but in this situation they both said something I agree with.

For the record, while I don’t agree with many of President Obama’s policies, such as his support of rabid Planned Parenthood, I do agree that it is past time for the “racism conversation.” On the other hand, although I also don’t always agree with everything that Mr. O’Reilly says, I do agree that we need to strengthen the American family which also includes the African American family.

Of course the conversation regarding racism needs to include dialogue that we are all one race, one human race, created of one blood. (see Acts 17:26) My famous uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said “we must learn to live together as brothers (and sisters) or perish as fools.” If we are one race with varying ethnic distinctions, then we can stop fighting and exercise brotherly and sisterly, “humanly” love.

We also need to understand that racism stems from hatred, not love. Racism is evil personified. We must work hard to overcome evil with good. God is love and God is good, so we can overcome racism with agape love. We must pray now for transformation of human hearts and replace the hatred with the love of Christ. Again, God is Love.

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:8 (NIV)

So, we need to bring people closer to God if we are to minimize racism.

As for strengthening the African American family and indeed the human family, we as parents, yes parents, plural, need to teach our children and grandchildren how to live moral, righteous lives. Of course parents, men and women, mothers and fathers are created equal but are assigned different life roles. So as parents, each has a role to play in the raising of our children. Statistics have shown that children raised in single-parent households have a higher poverty rate, more criminal behavior, higher unemployment, higher school dropout rate. This is why the sanctity of life and the sanctity of natural marriage are both so very important and interrelated.

Each parent, the mother or father, has different things to teach their children. Things that are important for the well-being of the children.

Does that mean that there aren’t times when single-parent households will occur? No, sometimes they occur due to death, or spousal abuse, or lack of moral instruction or understanding, or a number of other reasons. Yet they should not occur so frequently that they become the norm.

“Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.” ESV 2001

Please allow me to share a story from Naturally Moi of a child star who has shared an inspiring testimony that can serve as a roadmap for our young women.

In the midst of all of the controversy regarding Trayvon Martin, the Texas sanctity of life battle, and so many other boiler point issues, it is so very refreshing to hear this testimony from one of my favorite television childhood personalities.

Tamera Mowry-Housley who once starred in the popular Sister Sister TV series with her twin sister Tia but recently surprised her co-stars and fans by revealing she has only had sex with one person in her life.
Mowry recently told her The Real panel members that she didn’t lose her virginity six years ago when she was 29-years-old.

“I don’t know how to explain this. I’m religious, so I waited until I was 29 to lose my virginity,” she insisted.

She also explained that she regretted losing her virginity before marriage so much that she decided to wait until she married three years later to engage in sexual intercourse again.

“You may not understand this but I did it (had sex). Then I became celibate until I got married.”
In 2011, Tamera married Fox News Correspondent Adam Housley after they had dated for almost six years.

Before Housley, the Sister Sister star dated Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

Last November, Mowry and Adam had their first son, Aden.

While Tamera considers herself to be religious and conservative, she says that she’s “far from boring in the bedroom.”

Tamera’s perspective is one that far too many young people are missing these days, saving exciting sex for the marriage bed. Such a plan could lead to far less heartbreak, STDS and abortions.

“42″ Stirs the Heart and the Conscience

Friday, April 19th, 2013





three headed monster

While I’m often accused of finding Pro-Life messages behind every tree, it can’t be denied that “42″ brings an inherent message of courage, compassion and composure that prevailed in the lives of Jackie and Rae Robinson as well as Dodgers Manager Branch Rickey. These same principles are needed so much in the ongoing heated moral debates of our time.

While the skin color/racism devil is somewhat subdued today, it still rears its ugly head. Then we are also contending with moral questions surrounding the sanctity of natural life and marriage. This “three headed monster” of racism, anti-procreative liberty and sexual perversion has crept into our lives with the intent of leading us further astray.

This is why the movie 42 is so inspiring; and the themes of racial unity, nonviolence, marital fidelity and Christianity are so very refreshing. They apply to our present day struggles; while they stir our hearts and rouse our conscience.

Today, we are fraught with unjust laws such as legal abortion – the killing of human babies in the womb. Where is the justice for the babies?

Uncle M. L., Jackie and Rae Robinson and Branch Rickey challenged the immoral unwritten laws of their day. We cannot afford to do less in Century 21. Uncle M. L. once said “a just law squares with the law of God.”

God’s Word is God’s law. The Bible charges us to love each other, and that law transcends human efforts to redesign God’s plan for continuity.

Jackie Robinson left the Dodgers the year after Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat in Montgomery. Yet that wasn’t the end of the baseball great’s mission to advance civil rights. He became a statesman and defender of my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I know that Robinson was a super ball player and Rickey was a phenomenal businessman. But they were so much more than that. They dealt with the human issues if their day.

The movie 42 has heart. We could all learn a lot from their examples of courage, composure and compassion.

Alveda King and Black Leaders: ‘Gosnell Attorney Playing the Race Card is Outrageous and Shameful’

Friday, March 22nd, 2013





Gossnell (left) Atty. Jack McMahon (right) and "Gosnell's House of Horror" (center)

Kermit Gosnell (left) Atty. Jack McMahon (right) and “Gosnell’s House of Horror” (center)

The defense attorney for Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist whose killing center earned the title “Gosnell’s House of Horrors” has tried to reduce Gosnell’s charges to “prosecutorial lynching.”

This strategy is an insult to the babies he slaughtered, the women he maimed and killed, the African Community at large and the human race, say African American leaders.

In his opening arguments Jack McMahon called the case “elitist” and “racist,” and charged the trail is coming from prosecutors trying to “put Mayo clinic standards into a West Philadelphia clinic.” Members of the Black Prolife Coalition believe it is Gosnell who is elitist and definitely racist.

“Don’t Black women and babies deserve Mayo Clinic standards?” said Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life. “You sir, are being elitist and racist to suggest that we do not. We reject the notion that the black and brown women Gosnell preyed upon deserved less. Your tactics are shameful, outrageous and an affront in the face of God,” said Dr. King.

“Throughout the Holocaust Josef Mengele aka ‘the angel of death’ delighted in killing young children in the most atrocious and gruesome experiments — all in the name of science,” said Day Gardner, President of the National Black Pro-Life Union. “Kermit Gosnell, is the Black community’s Mengele because he especially preyed on children of his own race who were fully born — totally free to experience the life and liberty that we are all promised in America. Yet, at that moment of new life — the child in warm hands, breathing air, seeing first light, may have also seen the face of his or her executioner. The only factor of ‘race’ is that Gosnell killed these children because he could. He thought no one would really care — after all, it’s just one more Black child — dead in Philadelphia,” Gardner said.

“Selling out the Black community in the name of abortion rights is unconscionable,” said Catherine Davis, Founder and President of the Restoration Project. “But, Gosnell’s attorney has taken this betrayal to a new low by claiming Gosnell should not be prosecuted because he is black. While “women kept being referred to and coming to his clinic because they could get what they needed at the right price,” the right price made Gosnell a millionaire while he was butchering women and babies in the name of abortion. I say he should be prosecuted and held accountable for the injuries and deaths of those he is now claiming to have served and his race makes this betrayal all the more difficult to stomach.”

Not only is Dr. Kermit Gosnell documented as a depraved butcher, he is a depraved butcher who made money on the desperation and despair of women from his own community. Even the Klu Klux Klan treated their own women better,” said Walter Hoye, founder of the Issues4Life Foundation.

The leaders are spearheading investigations, calling for enforcement of life saving laws for women and children, and are advocating information campaigns as to the harmful impact of eugenics and genocide in the Black community.

King, Gardner, Davis and Hoye are all members of the well known National Black Prolife Coalition. Their book LIFE AT ALL COSTS is a thoughtful and well researched account of the issues of life and family that are impacting the Black community.

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!

Racism, Slavery, Sexual Immorality and Abortion

Friday, January 4th, 2013





SPACER
Luke 4:18-19
The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Dr. Karen StevensonOur good friend Dr. Karen Stevenson, MD, a pro-life advocate, has written an insightful paper that confirms new views on the connection between racism, slavery, and abortion.

While studying the connection between abortion and slavery, one might wish to consider the research respectfully submitted by those who are determined to get to the bottom of the controversies and shed some light on the issue.

1. Excerpt from Utrum by Dr. Karen Stevenson

“As Kathleen Neal Cleaver states in her review of Dorothy Roberts’ book, Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the meaning of Liberty, “Roberts learned the significance of reproductive autonomy not from the contemporary abortion movement but from studying the histories of slave women who fought to gain control over their lives.”[1] Any treatise that discusses black women and their reproductive freedoms must take into account the impact of these freedoms on the black community as a whole. Thus, any issue germane to African-American women is also crucial to the welfare of the African-American family and by extension, the African-American community.

Abortion benefits African-American women because it allows them to exercise control over their reproductive destinies.

Slave women in America did not have the right to self-determination, and they had no autonomy over their bodies in any way. The profit driven slave economy benefitted tremendously from their toil and their procreative abilities. The slave woman’s children were not her own, and by the whim of her master, they could be sold away from her, never to be seen again. In post Civil War America, there was no further need for black women to procreate. In fact, her ability to procreate no longer served the greater good.”

2. Excerpt from 2013 Message by Dr. Alveda King

“One can’t help but consider if disregard for the value of women and children is still at the root of abortion today. Consider this, many if not all of the women abolitionists should have been the forerunners of the Pro-Life Movement. Instead, we have a counterfeit “Women’s Rights Movement” which supports abortion and harmful contraceptive drugs today. Why in the world, how in the world could this be?

Remember, both women and men were allowed to be involved with the Anti-Slavery act. But, women could only go so far because they couldn’t vote, and many could not own property. Non-African Women and all slaves were actually considered to be chattel or property back then. So, it was hard for white and black women to be involved as abolitionists because white women were treated in very similar manner to African Americans, and most Black women were slaves. Unfortunately, the same thing was happening to the Native American Population. They were all considered to be chattels.

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 on their husband’s “Black Beauties” as a means of retaliation against their own brand of experienced oppression.

If you think about it, the same issues are at the heart of the Middle East Conflict. Sarah’s and Hagar’s sons are brothers with Abraham’s seed, yet their bitter battle still rages. My, what a bitter root of judgment in all these situations!

While many women who were abolitionists ended up becoming women rights activists, bitterness caused them to adopt a contraceptives agenda and finally an abortion agenda to exercise what they considered to be rights over their wombs. So now we have a war on babies and the wombs often led by women and men controlled by a desire for revenge and avarice.”

“It is a fact generally observed in slave societies that the mistress is more cruel in her treatment of slaves than the master.

There are on record not two or three, but scores of cases of the cruelty of the senhoras de engenho toward defenseless slaves.”
