Evangelist Alveda King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn with Priests for Life, citing recent quotes from a seemingly unlikely pair of social justice headliners, Walter Hoye of Issues4Life and BET Award Winner Jessie Williams, notes that SCOTUS is out of touch with the American Dream.
In a not so surprising move yesterday, SCOTUS overturned Texas law that sought to protect women from substandard care in Texas abortion mills. “This decision will hurt women and kill babies,” King said.
“Don’t be misled — you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.”(Galatians 6:7 NLT)
Citing a report from Walter Hoye at issues4life foundation, King noted abortion is the number one killer of Blacks in America; higher than heart attacks, diabetes, and hypertension. Hoye states that according to Violence Policy Center, there were 6,217 Black American homicides for the year 2013. When compared to Black American abortions, the 429,000 abortions in Black America for 2013 represent 69 times the number of Black American homicides.
Hoye also cited a recent analysis by Dennis Howard, President of the Movement for a Better America, who has written extensively on abortion demographics, which shows that out of every 1,680 pregnant Black American women 15-44, 1,000 will give birth to their child and 680 will abort their baby. The analysis was based on data from the U.S. Statistical Abstract for 2013 and the National Vital Statistics Report, Vol. 64, No. 1 dated January 15, 2015.
King also applauded remarks by Jessie Williams, the actor/activist who accepted the recent BET Humanitarian Award for his work in the black community. After going through his customary thank yous and acknowledgements, Williams said: “A system built to divide and impoverish and destroy us cannot stand if we do.”
Connecting the dots, King summed it up pointing that the fight for freedom begins in the womb; and by quoting her Uncle MLK and colleague Rev. Frank Pavone: “Hey SCOTUS, you and the abortion industry can’t serve the public by killing the public. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere!”
King added: “Break every chain. In the end, natural law, God’s law will always trump common law. Do not fear or be confused or deceived. Remain prayerful. Keep looking up. God will have the final word in this matter.”
