Alveda King, Naomi King: De-sanctification of Human Life at Core of America’s Crime Crisis

Mrs. Naomi King, wife of Rev. A.D. King, sister-in-law of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and mother of Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn with Priests for Life, was recently vandalized at her senior citizens’ residence in Atlanta, GA. Along with Mrs. Naomi King’s, cars of other residents were vandalized, with windows bashed in, and possessions rifled in the car. On October 9, 2015 Mrs. King experienced a similar attack where a teenager approached her car, demanded her keys, and punched her in the face repeatedly when she refused to get out of the car or give up the vehicle.

Mrs. King is a voice for civil rights and justice. She loves Jesus Christ. Today, she and her daughter Alveda are advocates for the sanctity of human life from conception until natural death. They agree that a disregard for the sanctity of human life is at the core of America’s violent crime crisis.

Quoting Saint Mother Teresa, Alveda explains: “What is taking place in America is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?”

In 1951 Mrs. Naomi was faced with an unexpected pregnancy. She was offered a “choice” by the then “Birth Control League” that would become “Planned Parenthood.” The offer was for a “procedure for a mysterious female ailment,” a D&C which would have eliminated everything in Naomi’s womb.

Naomi went to her future father-in-law, Martin Luther King, Sr., who prophetically described the baby he’d seen in a dream three years prior. Naomi didn’t abort that baby; Alveda. As a result, Evangelist Alveda King is a voice for life today.

Paraphrasing words from her brother-in-law, Mrs. Naomi says: “When we do not value the human personality then our society is in trouble.” She also urges in an open letter: “Our God, who is loving and merciful gave you life and gifts. Are you thankful?”

Naomi’s love of God, grace and beauty, earned for her the title “The Butterfly Queen. “I’m so glad I chose life for my angel daughter Alveda,” she said.

Evangelist Alveda loves her mother and is grateful for her life. She prays for a “cease fire” in America’s abortions, crime and violence; and concludes urging everyone: “Pray for America and vote pro-life.

priests_for_life_logo_transparent

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, announced that today begins a nine-week novena that focuses on the 2016 elections.

“For nine weeks before Election Day” Father Pavone said, “Priests for Life calls upon believers to participate in an Election Novena. In this prayer campaign, we pray that we will choose wisely and that God’s people may not vote simply according to party loyalty or self interest, but rather, according to principle and the Word of God.”

The novena prayer can be found at www.ElectionPrayer.com. “The prayer is both nonpartisan and nondenominational.”

“When God judges nations,” Father Pavone said, “he does not necessarily send down fire and brimstone. Rather, he simply leaves us to endure the consequences of our own choices.”

Topical – Controversial – Relevant: The Catholic View for Women’s Sixth Season Kicks Off Sept. 7

September 6th, 2016

priests_for_life_logo_transparent

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: September 6, 2016

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

The Catholic View for Women will tackle sizzling hot topics when its sixth season premieres Sept. 7 on EWTN.

Co-hosts Astrid Bennett Gutierrez, Janet Morana and Teresa Tomeo will give the Catholic View treatment to the transgender movement, same-sex attraction, the lingering damage of the sexual revolution and choosing chastity. Guests also will address street evangelization and how to cope after the death of a teenager.

Intimate Graces: How Practicing the Works of Mercy Bring Out the Best in Marriage, written by Ms. Tomeo and her husband, Deacon Dominick Pastore, will be highlighted in one episode and Father John Riccardo of the Archdiocese of Detroit will be on two episodes to discuss what people in the pews are longing to hear from their priests.

“You don’t want to miss the new season,” said Ms. Bennett Gutierrez, executive director of the Vida Initiative and Los Angeles Pregnancy Services. “Our guests will share moving testimonies of how they are living their faith despite pressures from the Culture — like living chastity or discerning a vocation in a secularized world by young Catholic women, or raising a precious baby with special needs. Women of all ages should tune because they’ll be inspired to find the answers to all of life’s challenges in the splendor of our Catholic faith.”

The show began in 2011 as an antidote to secular women’s shows like “The View,” where, Mrs. Morana notes, the conservative women on the panel and guests who are pro-life or against same-sex marriage are regularly shouted down.

“Shows like that say they are about women and women’s issues, but they rarely delve into topics that matter to real women, and they never talk about the things that matter to Catholic women,” said Mrs. Morana, executive director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. “That’s what we specialize in at The Catholic View for Women.”

Catholic media personality Ms. Tomeo concurred: “What I love most about this opportunity to speak to women around the world is that we are able to address at length real issues that impact women but are rarely discussed in the secular culture. Once again will be sharing stories and interviews that are sure to make a difference in our viewers’ knowledge of their faith and they way they apply it to their everyday lives.”

The Catholic View airs at 11 p.m. ET on Wednesdays and is rebroadcast at 10:30 a.m. Fridays.

American Freedom Law Center Names Fr. Pavone a “Freedom Fighter”

September 1st, 2016

priests_for_life_logo_transparent

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: September 1, 2016

347-286-7277

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, will receive the 2016 Freedom Fighter Award Sept. 20 in Michigan during the American Freedom Law Center’s annual dinner.

Father Pavone is also the keynote speaker for the dinner at the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, MI. He will share a powerful message about the critical moment we face right now in America regarding religious freedom and in our national elections.

Sharing the Freedom Fighter Award with him will be Lilly Johnson, president of Johnson Welded Products, and Greg Cunningham, executive director of the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (on whose Board of Directors Father Pavone serves).

“Each of these ‘freedom fighters’ has demonstrated exceptional courage in defense of religious freedom and the right to life,” said Robert Muise, co-founder and senior counsel. “We are honored to not only call them our ‘clients,’ but friends and fellow warriors in our fight for faith and freedom.”

Father Pavone said he is deeply honored by the award.

“Those who defend the unborn soon realize that they get treated like the unborn; their rights are also ignored,” he said. “The American Freedom Law Center stands up for our Constitution, however and wherever it is being challenged, so to have them bestow on me the Freedom Fighter Award is very humbling and deeply appreciated.”

The American Freedom Law Center represents Priests for Life in its ongoing challenge to the HHS mandate. Priests for Life vs. HHS was argued in the U.S. Supreme Court on March 23.

In February 2012, Priests for Life was the fourth organization in the nation to file suit against the mandate, which would force employers to be complicit in providing contraceptives, abortifacient drugs and sterilization to their employees. Houses of worship are exempt, but faith-based ministries like Priests for Life were only offered an “accommodation” that is still morally objectionable.

In March, the Supreme Court heard seven consolidated cases in Zubik vs. Burwell, including the Priests for Life case. Rather than issue an opinion, the Court sent the cases back to lower appeals courts with the instruction that the government should try to reach a mutually acceptable agreement with the religious groups. That agreement has not yet been reached.

Evangelist Alveda King: Moynihan Prophecy Self-Fulfilled, The Race Issue is Smack in our Faces

August 31st, 2016

Friends, you may have recently seen me on TV discussing race relations. https://grabien.com/file.php?id=101171 and http://video.foxbusiness.com/v/5103503038001/dr-aveda-king-colin-kaepernick-protest-is-very-disturbing

You surely have heard my reminders that color blindness is a medical and spiritual condition requiring restoration of sight; and that being of separate races is a lie. We are one blood/one human race! [Acts 17:26] Also, you may have heard me say that “White Privilege” hurts not just Blacks, but every ethnicity and all of America. There are many working class Caucasians and all ethnic groups who are victims of the same unfair lending, housing and other disparities that are holding Blacks hostage in urban cities. It’s no longer just about skin color.

Here below is more information on the subject. The race issue is smack in the middle of the abortion crisis, the presidential elections and so much more. Let’s pray for truth and understanding to break every chain!

Research on One Blood and America’s flawed system:

An excellent tool for understanding America’s flawed system is to get acquainted with these thinkers through their videos.

 

  1. Debby Irving: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oD5Ox5XNEpg. The entire video is EXCELLENT, try to watch the whole thing,  The exact information you and I were discussing starts at the 6:30 mark.
  2. Historian Jacqueline Battalora: Traces the creation of white privilege in some of the earliest recorded laws in America. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riVAuC0dnP4
  3. Dorothy Roberts: Brilliant legal scholar, discusses the modern perpetuation of the myth of biological race through social propaganda dressed up as science. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ydj9yOR_0qE
  4. The Negro Family: The Case For National Action (known as the Moynihan Report, 1965) was written by Daniel Patrick Moynihan, an American sociologist serving as Assistant Secretary of Labor under President Lyndon B. Johnson of the United States. His report focused on the deep roots of block poverty in the United States. http://www.blackpast.org/primary/moynihan-report-1965
  5. Some bullet points:
  • • 19th Century GI Bill selective lending practices were designed to advance some and limit others.
  • • In the patriarchal system of America and most of the world, the forced Black Matriarchal system crippled the Black Men of America.
  • • America’s Welfare System should have been a Workfare System, allowing participants to invest in their futures with empowerment rather than handouts. Forcing the fathers out of their families amplified the problems.
  • • Creation of privatization of US prisons and flooding them with Blacks hurt not only the African American Community, but the nation as a whole.
  • • Flooding the nations with cheap labor from outside, and forcing industry overseas with excessive tax penalties hurt the working classes of America, disproportionately Black families.

While All Not Endorsing, We Should All Be Praying and Voting

August 30th, 2016
Click image to enlarge

Click image to enlarge

In 2007, during the Presidential elections of the United States, I endorsed my last candidate, Governor Sam Brownback. When he left the campaign, I was about to endorse another candidate, Governor Mike Huckabee. Just as I was about to press the “send” button on the release, I was impressed to read my Bible. During those moments, it was as if God was speaking to my heart. “Stop endorsing, and start praying.”

Having been elected to office in the Georgia House of Representatives during the 1970’s and 1980’s, I understood the importance of political endorsements. I still do. So, for many years, especially since the time that God impressed me to pray for all candidates, and vote for the platforms that are closest to my heart and His Word, I have been voting prolife and pro-America. Messages like the sanctity of life, reconciliation of the one blood, the one human race; the sanctity of procreative monogamous; social economic justice; equal education rights; constitutional rights, and so much more continues to resonate in my heart as I prepare to vote.

This year, during this important election, with a clear conscience, I am honoring my commitment to God to spend more time in prayer, rather than endorsing any candidates. Some are texting and posting that this is lack of courage. Believe me, it takes quite a bit of courage to stand up to the pressure of not endorsing, even to the point of being called a coward. However, I still love everyone, and I still love America.

I encourage you to view the video of Pastor Will Bates of Living Faith Christian Church in Baton Rouge, and my video at Fox Business News.

Pastor Bates and I have something in common; he took his daughter to her first protest, my daddy Rev. A. D. King took me to mine; The Children’s March in Birmingham, Alabama. I have been peacefully protesting every since.

I pledge allegiance to the Kingdom of God, with a burning desire to be that city/nation on a hill, shining light to the world. I sing our National Anthem with gratitude, believing for that day when we can truly be one nation under God. May God bless us all!

Evangelist Alveda King – “Amidst unveiling of new website on the weekend of the “I Have a Dream” 53rd Anniversary, Black Community mourns another Planned Parenthood Abortion Death”

August 26th, 2016

Atlanta, GA – Timed to coincide with the 53rd anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, Priests for Life’s African-American Outreach is launching a new website, logo, mascot and name – Civil Rights for the Unborn (CRU) – for the ministry led by MLK’s niece.

“We interrupt our announcement of unveiling our new “Civil Rights for the Unborn” website to report more death from another Planned Parenthood abortion, says Evangelist Alveda King.

“Mounting grief over yet more abortion deaths – this time of Michigan mother Cree Erwin and baby – overshadows our news. Black leaders and prolife leaders at large are outraged and grieved that yet another young beautiful Black woman and her baby have recently succumbed to painful deaths following an abortion at a Planned Parenthood facility,” explains King.

In the aftermath of Ms. Erwin’s abortion death, one of many in America, Pastor Clennard Childress, cofounder of L.E.A.R.N. says: “Black Life Matters has [recently] teamed up with the most destructive racist machine in American history; its founder, Margaret Sanger was the most devout racist of her time! The leading killer of innocent unarmed African Americans in the womb – whose hands were up, but given no choice or chance at the American Dream their fellow African American, Dr. Martin Luther King preached about – is Planned Parenthood!

“It breaks my heart that when a young man is gunned down by a [police officer], the media runs with it like wildfire. Yet, if an abortionist kills a young black woman and baby, the silence is tragic,” adds Dr. Johnny Hunter, cofounder of L.E.A.R.N.

“My uncle didn’t live to experience the horrors of legal abortion, which includes death to babies and harm to women. Today he would have fought just as hard to secure the rights of unborn Americans as he fought for racial justice for Blacks.

“Americans and all people are not racially divided biologically or spiritually, but are rather ‘one blood/one race.’ [Acts 17:26] At CRU we seek to end abortion genocide and educate and unite the human family around the sanctity of life.

“We can reflect our support for life by praying, participating in the prolife movement, and voting prolife,” King urged.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, concludes: “No other civil rights issue of our day is more important than securing the right to life for the human beings still in their mothers’ wombs.”

Sweet Victory for Mothers, Babies and Civil Rights Pro-Life Warriors Everywhere as Killing Center in Wisconsin Closes Its Doors

August 25th, 2016

160825 BLM graphic

Planned Parenthood says “Black Lives Matter.” At Civil Rights for the Unborn, we know that God loves everyone, and Acts 17:26 teaches us that there is only one race, the human race.

Deuteronomy 30:19 teaches us to choose life so that we and our families can live.

If America, and indeed the whole world are to live and prosper, we must stop killing our children.

Our hats go off and our hearts go out to the valiant civil rights prolife warriors who have fought so long to close abortion killing centers. As the natural and spiritual storms rage in Wisconsin, America and around the world, here are two encouraging reports.

http://www.priestsforlife.org/pressreleases/5814-prayers-answered-with-closing-of-famed-wisconsin-abortion-clinic
and
http://www.churchmilitant.com/news/article/wisconsin-close-planned-parenthood-abortion-mill

“It breaks my heart that when a young man is gunned down by a cop the media runs with it like wildfire. Yet, if an abortionist kills a young black women, the silence itself is tragic. Since the average black does not know, there is no outcry.” Dr. Johnny Hunter

Pray with us, for America, the world; for respect for the sanctity of life in the womb, in every circumstance of life, and until natural death. Pray for brotherly and sisterly love, nonviolence and God’s grace.

Prayers Answered with Closing of Famed Wisconsin Abortion Clinic

August 23rd, 2016

priests_for_life_logo_transparent

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: August 23, 2016

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

Longtime pro-life activists Rev. Norm Stone, Jerry Horn, Joe Scheidler and Father Frank Pavone today reacted to news of the permanent closing of Planned Parenthood’s abortion business in Appleton, Wisconsin.

The abortion facility, located in the town of Grand Chute, has been a hotbed of pro-life street activism for over three decades, and at one time was reputed to be the largest and busiest freestanding abortion clinic in Wisconsin, serving the tri-state area of Wisconsin, Michigan and western Minnesota. Its closing marks a significant victory for local and national prolife groups.

“This is what I have prayed about night and day,” said Horn, a senior advisor to Priests for Life.

Horn explained that his pro-life activism began in the early 1980s when he was on a retreat with his wife, Bonnie, their pastor, Rev. Norm Stone, and his wife, Judy. Following training in pro-life activism by movement veterans Joe and Ann Scheidler, founders of the Pro-Life Action League, Pastor Stone’s church purchased the house next to the Appleton abortion business – then named the Fox Valley Reproductive Healthcare Center – and Horn and his wife moved in with their children.

“Planned Parenthood is blaming the closing on its inability to adequately ‘protect’ its staff and clients from pro-lifers, but that’s just a cover story, and not a very convincing one,” Horn said. “This business is closing because the darkness of abortion has been exposed. That’s what Pastor Stone and his wife and my wife and I started doing 33 years ago, and which the faithful and constant local and state leaders and individuals have been doing since then. They are the real heroes today.”

Pastor Stone, reached in Montana as he completed his 2,700th mile in an 8,000-mile walk for life called Circling the Nation, said the abortion business closing represented “a real victory for the pro-lifers who stayed on the battle lines all these years.”

Scheidler, who was having lunch with his wife, Ann, their daughter Sarah Worthington and Horn in Chicago yesterday as they learned of the closing, said: “We’re just delighted that the Appleton clinic is finally closed. The fact that I was with Ann and Jerry when we heard the news gave us all reason to celebrate.

“Abortion businesses are closing all over the country because of the dedication of pro-lifers willing to brave ridicule and worse by standing outside in prayer and protest,” said Father Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “The abortion industry is in a state of collapse. We will see to it that more and more of these centers close.”

A press conference that will bring together national pro-life leaders is being planned for the near future. Horn said the conference would focus on the work of Wisconsin activists who have worked for decades to close the Appleton abortion facility, as well as the trend of these free-standing abortion businesses closing nationwide.

To arrange interviews with any of the original Appleton activists, call Leslie Palma, communications director for Priests for Life, at 347-286-7277 or email her at leslie@priestsforlife.org

Priests for Life leading prayer efforts in advance of Election Day

August 10th, 2016

priests_for_life_logo_transparent

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: August 10, 2016

347-286-7277

NEW YORK — With less than 100 days to go before the presidential election, Priests for Life is leading and participating in numerous prayer efforts to beg God’s help in steering the United States off its pro-death trajectory.

Priests for Life founded the Vote Pro-Life Coalition, a wide-ranging group of national ministries working together to advance non-partisan activities to help pro-life voters engage the electoral process in an informed and responsible way.
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, also has written “An Election Prayer for Life” (www.ElectionPrayer.com) and is asking people to pray it daily between now and Nov. 8, Election Day.

“To believers, prayer campaigns aren’t seen as passive activities that likely won’t bear fruit,” Father Pavone said. “Prayer is the foundation of everything we do in the pro-life movement, and we will not be successful in turning our nation around without it.”

Priests for Life also supports the first-ever Novena for Our Nation, a 54-day prayer event that will begin Aug. 15 and culminate with a Rosary Rally in Washington, D.C., on October 7. Priests for Life Pastoral Associate Father Stephen Imbarrato – the “Protest Priest” — is on the organizing committee for this initiative and will speak at the closing day Rosary Rally in front of the U.S. Capitol.

“We just witnessed a political convention where a woman was cheered for saying she had an abortion, and the most abortion-friendly political platform in our history was adopted,” Father Imbarrato said. “Clearly we are a nation in need of healing.”

Priests for Life is also asking believers to join the organization in praying an Assumption Novena that began Aug. 7 and concludes Aug. 15, the Feast of the Assumption.

“The world needs the Assumption,” Father Pavone said. “Mary’s share in Christ’s victory, body and soul, over death, is a sign of the ultimate victory of life in which we are all called to share.”
