Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, author of newly released Thomas Nelson book KING RULES is stunned and saddened by reports of the violent death of yet another “young Black male.” Speaking of the death of eighteen year old Michael Brown who was allegedly gunned down by a local police officer in Ferguson, MO last Saturday, King said: “This time let’s not spin this into yet another argument over gun control. Let’s do something to stop the killing of our children and our young people. Michael could have been stabbed or choked to death. The method isn’t the problem. The problem is that our society must begin to value life, tempered with justice and liberty for everyone.” King shared similar sentiments at a recent Family Leadership Summit in Iowa.

Praying to avoid yet another series of angry retaliation against injustice, King added: “Amidst reported angry protests of racial profiling, intended peaceful prayer vigils are turning violent as protestors of the youth’s death are taking to streets with torches, looting and stealing and rampaging local business establishments. This painful incident brings to mind my father Rev. A. D. King in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963 when our home was fire bombed by rabid racists. The people were angry and wanted to riot. Daddy stood on the hood of a car with a megaphone and calmed the people. This is not the time to riot. This is the time to pray. Please, protest, stand up for our rights, but do this with nonviolence!”

“In memory of my father and in honor to God, I urge nonviolence in the demand for justice of Michael’s death. This is not the time to burn, this is the time to turn our prayers towards heaven and seek nonviolent and just solutions to what has happened to Michael. This must be done for his family, his neighbors, and our nation,” King added.

King, who is also the Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, and the Founder of Alveda King Ministries once called the shooting death of another Black youth in Florida “a late term abortion.” Trayvon Martin was shot by a self proclaimed vigilante “peace officer” as he was returning home from the store with candy and soda pop. Martin was also unarmed. King was encouraged by the reaction of young Martin’s parents, who called for peace and for justice. The parents maintained their dignity while fighting for justice for the loss of their son.

“When a child is killed in the womb, or years later, his or her dreams are aborted. In order for justice to prevail, hearts need to be calmed, tempers need to be calmed, the facts need to be determined. In order for justice to prevail, the judicial system must be allowed to take its course,” said King.

To burn down gas stations, loot and steal and rampage local business establishments won’t bring Michael back, to his family or to our hurting world. I join my cousin Elder Bernice King, CEO of the MLK Center in Atlanta in a call for nonviolence as justice is sought for Michael Brown in Saint Louis, and for a moratorium on violence all over the world. Bernice King has launched a call for 365 Days of nonviolence at www.choosenonviolence.org. Alveda King can be reached at www.africanamericanoutreach.org. They are the daughter and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

NEW YORK, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement regarding passage of a new clinic access law in Massachusetts.

“The Massachusetts Legislature is wasting the taxpayers’ money. This new law they concocted as an end run around the First Amendment will fall in the court, just as the 35-foot buffer zone went down to a 9-0 count last month in the U.S. Supreme Court.”

NEW YORK, NY — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding a ruling from a panel of the federal appeals court that will keep Mississippi’s only abortion clinic open, at least temporarily.

“A law enacted to safeguard the health of Mississippi women is being kept on hold not because it is a bad law, but because the abortionists at Jackson Women’s Health Center are such bad doctors that they can’t get a hospital to agree to give them admitting privileges. The panel that said the law is probably unconstitutional either did not know the facts about the caliber of doctors who kill babies for a living, or they didn’t care. In the minds of pro-aborts and judges sympathetic to their cause, access to abortion is more important than any other consideration, including women’s safety.”

Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, said: “The appeals court panel is so concerned about access to abortion that they will just look the other way as abortions are botched and women are harmed.”

Priests for Life Reminds Administration That No Cooperation With Mandate Is Possible

STATEN ISLAND, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding a new accommodation to the HHS mandate to be announced by the Obama administration.

“The Priests for Life lawsuit against the HHS mandate is the next to be decided, having already had oral arguments in the nation’s second most influential Court, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. At the crux of the issue is that our completion of the form required under the “accommodation” given to religious non-profit groups constitutes cooperation in the very evil that the form says we are objecting to.

“If the government just kept us out of the process altogether of either triggering, authorizing, or in any fashion being the gateway for employees to receive coverage for objectionable practices, that would satisfy our concerns. Of course, we would have to carefully examine any changes the Administration makes to its current policy, in order to verify that what our faith considers immoral cooperation is completely excluded.”

Abortion, The Real “War on Women”

The Real “War On Women”
By Tricia Erickson, http://www.theconservativepundit.net/?page_id=1102

I am so sick and tired, yes, sick and tired, of hearing about the “War On Women” while women fill abortionist’s offices to terminate the life of their own female (and male) babies. The left has labeled those who are against the act of abortion as “warring” against women even though the lives of the little female babies within them are being slaughtered at the altar of the female mother’s “right to choose”.

Although I’m a registered Republican, I am currently not a fan of either party. However, the Democrat Party is the Party that concocted this fictitious War On Women for political reasons. You see, if the Democrat political leaders can convince non-thinking human beings that there is indeed a “War On Women”, then they can politically posture themselves to be the “Protector of Women” in order to gain the female vote. So elementary for the simple minded who lack the discernment not to buy what they are selling.

Most Black Americans identify themselves with the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party’s Plantation Owners pose to protect a “Woman’s Right To Choose” to abort her child. However, The Democrat Party of abortion sweeps the dirt under the carpet that they are depopulating their own race through their extraordinary push to abort their own black babies. Data from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene disclosed that New York black women had more abortions than live births in 2012 http://www.clutchmagonline.com/2014/02/statistics-show-black-babies-aborted-born-nyc/. I quote the article, “As far as pregnancy terminations, black children who were aborted comprised 42.4 percent of the total number of abortions in New York City. In 2012, out of 73,815 abortions in the city, 31,328 black babies were aborted.” I would wager that up to half, if not more, of those aborted black babies were female.

It is the Democrat Plantation Owners, including Barack Obama, who are the ones waging, not only the real war on women by way of killing children in the womb, but also are systematically depopulating the Black Race that includes multi thousands of female children through their “Woman’s Right To Choose / War On Women” abortion platform. How crazy it that? They tout that there is a war on women while propagating the murders of multitudes of female babies in the womb who could also become mothers of future female children.

This culture of death that flows through our political leaders is a total sham. These political baby killers are selling a bill of goods: free love, free sex, with no consideration for the life of a child that is being created. No worries, you can just kill it.

Here’s a news flash! THE TIME FOR A WOMAN TO “CHOOSE” IS BEFORE SHE PERFORMS THE ACT TO CREATE THE HUMAN BEING. NOT AFTER the selfish act of short lived (no pun intended) physical pleasure that created the human being to be killed. And yes, this IS indeed a human being created to be killed.

I have carried three children. They were all very active in my womb within the first months of the pregnancies. At the end of just two months, they started poking, kicking and moving around.

My daughter and I used to play games when she was in my belly. I would poke my belly and she would poke back from inside. She was, as all children in the womb are, alive! They are human beings from the time they are created inside the mother’s wombs. http://thestir.cafemom.com/pregnancy/157203/7_amazing_things_babies_do.

Let’s use some common sense. If you decide to move any part of your body, your brain has to send a message to that specific part of the body to move it. When these tiny people are moving, sucking their thumbs, kicking and hiccupping in your womb, their brains also must send a message to their body parts to complete the action of movement, or else they would not be able to move. This is proof of life! A dead person doesn’t move! A live one does. http://prolifeacrossamerica.org/baby-developmental-facts/

From the conception of a fertilized egg within the womb to the extension of life outside the womb, there is a consistent progression of growth of the body all the way to adulthood.

After the newborn leaves the mother’s womb, can she survive without being fed and nourished outside of the body? The umbilical cord can be exchanged to the mother’s breast milk or formula for survival as she was also nourished in the womb.

Once outside the womb, if the baby can’t feed herself, should we kill her or should we continue feeding her in order that she can experience all of the stages of growth to adulthood? If she has no shelter, should we let her fend for herself on the streets or should we provide shelter to protect her? Can an eight year old open a business to support herself? Or should we kill her because she has not grown in to full adulthood, capable of providing for herself?

The baby grows from the time of conception inside of the womb to adulthood outside of the womb. This is a viable human being at every stage of growth and development, no matter what stage of growth this human being has reached. She’s ALIVE! She’s not dead!

And what happens to you when you are old and not able to fend for yourself? Will this culture of death consider that because you cannot take care of yourself, as these helpless babies cannot take care of themselves, that you should be euthanized as well?

At what point will folks wake up to the real War On Women, which is the killing of thousands and thousands of female (and male) babies in the womb?

King Rule #7: Care for the Needy (Children at Home and Abroad)

July 21st, 2014

Human Righs Begin in the Womb

It is an honor to stand with mercuryone.org and other compassionate leaders in aiding young immigrants on the borders. The opportunity to serve many of these children during this time of crisis was truly humbling.

L-R: Alveda King, Glenn and Tania Beck, and Pastor Stephen Broden at Sacred Heart Church

L-R: Alveda King, Glenn and Tania Beck, and Pastor Stephen Broden at Sacred Heart Church

I was praying to God for these innocent children when a call from Glen Beck’s office came, inviting me to join in the July 19, mission in McAllen, Texas. I was relieved. This “Macedonian Call” in the midst of our current border crisis was an answer to prayer.

We, America, are at another pivotal moment in our history. Many different crises are occurring right now and how we handle them will show the world what kind of a country the United States of America truly is.

One such crisis is the influx of immigrants crossing into our southern states that border with Mexico. Thousands of children, mostly from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador, are coming to America because their parents think they can have better opportunities here.

Before even addressing how best to handle the immigration crisis confronting our nation we first have to consider how to help these minors in need of food, clothing, shelter, and medical attention. Once we’ve done that, then we can deal with the rest.

And just how do we do that?

Consider, The US gives billions of dollars in foreign aid each year; $13 billion in 2013. Of that $13 billion, Honduras received $82+ million, Guatemala received $104+ million, and El Salvador received $66+ million. That’s $252+ million. Now, the millions in the 2014 budget could be redirected to provide immediate care for these children until a more permanent plan can be implemented.

Many of these children could even possibly be descendants of ancestors who migrated in and around the borders for many years. The Americas should always be home to the “huddled masses longing to be free.”

We (America) were once a beacon of love and hope to the world. Now we are seeking to slam our doors in the face of innocent children. What in the world happened? I’ll tell you what happened. Politics happened and the innocents are being swallowed up on the melee.

There has to be a compassionate as well as practical way of maintaining our borders. We just need to put the brakes on political strife and unite to save the children. Let’s remember that these are human beings we’re considering.

Today mammon, entitlement and politics are causing too many Americans to be cold and heartless. Not only to these innocent children seeking sanctuary within our borders. Hearts are also cold to the babies in the womb, to the school drop outs, to the sadly incarcerated, to the weak, the sick, the hungry… Need I go on?

There should be funding across the isles for assistance to all youth and children; mentoring programs, family assistance programs. Funding without the usual political entanglements. Human beings need genuine compassion and help.

As I wrote in my new book, KING RULES, (Rule No. 7: Care for the Needy):

“In our family, we care for the “least of these.” We feed the hungry, clothe the sick, visit those in prison, and we do all that we can as servant leaders to serve God and minister to his people. Of course, from generation to generation, our methods of ministry have varied, and yet we still care about the poor the sick, the hungry, and the downtrodden.”

Alveda on Mission Trip

Where will we get the funding to help those in need? Instead of the government spending millions of dollars to pass legislation such as the HHS Mandate that manipulates and threatens women’s physical and emotional health by forcing insurance companies and employers to provide harmful chemical and surgical products to women; the government should be about the business of defunding America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood and redirecting those bountiful funds towards saving lives rather than killing babies and injuring women.

Just think about it. Carcinogenic birth control can be as cheap as $9 a month. If women desire such products, many women can obtain $9 a month on their own without having to bear the burden of political haranguing and manipulations over dubious methods of birth control that are linked to breast and cervical cancer, strokes, heart attacks and other problems. Women are not lab rats. We deserve better than a plight of being experimented on in the name of health care.

Let’s face it; carcinogenic birth control is not health care. Neither is abortion. Both are linked to sickness and death. They are the face of the real war on women.

So why is our government pushing the HHS Mandate while allowing innocent children to gather on our borders? They are hoping that women are dumb sheep, fooled by the slick marketing of sex peddlers.

Sen. Ted Cruz helping at the border

Sen. Ted Cruz helping at the border

I call for an awakening of women power. The power to choose life over death. The power to nurture the next and future generations.

The millions of dollars the government is spending to strong arm this Obamacare HHS contraceptive mandate down unsuspecting women’s throats could be used to feed, clothe and provide REAL healthcare to these children; at home and abroad. The money would be better spent on stabilizing the economy and elevating the quality of life for men, women and children.

It’s ludicrous to put the management of the desire of people to engage in sexual activity over the welfare of innocent starving children. Not just these immigrant children but also our American children right here in our own communities.

Let love, truth and compassion arise!

The New Civil War: Abortion

July 16th, 2014

Civil Righs Begin in the Womb

The ongoing epic saga of the battle for Civil Rights has gained a boost from African American activist sans poet Shawn Welcome. He has posted a video on YouTube of his work, “Stand4Life Promo (Shawn Welcome – Civil War)”

“Bayonets in my neighbors’ neck if they’re close enough, gun-smoke and tensions in the air, this won’t end for another four years. The American Civil War, a bloody conflict within the same nation. On the backs of Blacks was built the wealthiest…” he laments, “Slave ships were packed and hearts were hardened, never asked to be here how unfair that we’re the problem…“

Welcome continues: “Never asked to be here, how unfair that they’re the problem,” he says as he moves his hand in cradle formation near his stomach alluding to the unborn babies in America.
“All in the name of freedom. Party like a rock-star while little ones are dying.

“Silent screams from injected saline and dreams you will never hear because little lungs were punctured before they could fully function,

WHO WILL BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS?” he cries out,

“How many freight trains of injustice will roll by behind church buildings while service inside sings louder?

“Hands in the air, pump up the volume…drowning out the rumblings of oppression.

“No formal funerals, nor miniature caskets, only the likes of medical waste to management tell me “how many pounds of flesh do you pick up for profit?

He continues with an eerie and compelling question: “And when will that “waste” begin to weigh down on your conscience?”

Play this video to hear the rest.

Now, do something to help end abortion, please SHARE the video with all your friends and family.

My Mother’s Tribute to Daddy

July 11th, 2014

I often honor my parents Rev. AD King and Mrs. Naomi Ruth Barber King in my books and speaking engagements. As young people, newly engaged kinggggggggto be married, they were encouraged by my grandfather “Daddy King”, to marry and start their family. They chose life, and Alveda Celeste King was born on January 22, 1951. I tell all about it in my book KING RULES.

Mother has a new book as well. In AD and ML King, she seeks to “set the historical records straight” in her new “love story,” AD and ML King: Two Brothers Who Dared to Dream.

In the book she reveals intimate details regarding the relationship between the brothers; both warriors in the crosshairs of the transformational 20th Century Civil Rights Movement.

“They cried together, they prayed together and they rejoiced together,” says Mother.

Few people know that the iconic civil rights leader and legendary preacher Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a younger brother; Rev. Alfred Daniel Williams King. Known as “ML and AD, The Sons of Thunder,” the two brothers were born less than two years apart.

kinggggAlong with captivating firsthand “heartfelt”anecdotes, Mother has filled the book with intimate, previously unpublished photos; not only of AD and ML, but with other cherished family members. Included also are a seven generation “King Family Tree”, as well as visual chronicles of the journey of two beloved brothers who lived and died for a cause in their quest for “The Beloved Community.”

Mother is the cofounder of The AD King Foundation. She is the recipient of several civil rights and humanitarian awards. She and president and cofounder of ADKF, Dr. Babs Onabanjo have worked together for several years to establish a “lasting and living memorial” to Rev.  AD King’s legacy of empowering youth and “Building Up the Beloved Community.”

The book and the award winning documentary AD KING: BROTHER OF THE DREAMER are available online at popular outlets or at www.adkingfoundation.com.

Fifty years ago LBJ signed the US Civil Rights Bill into law. Yet babies and women are dying today from the torture and abuse of abortion and abortifacients.

While President Johnson is credited with the passage of the 50 year old legislation celebrated today, it was Conservative Congressman Bill McCullough who accomplished the feat of uniting political parties to pass the bill.

I mention this historical note during the height of the turning tide that the Hobby Lobby victory represents. On the non-profit front, we at PFL are awaiting a decision in our complaint against the unjust HHS mandate.

Below, please read excerpts from the interesting commentary from my friend Nina May, film producer and founder of Renaissance Women.

(Warning: Entering intelligent rant zone!)

Hillary & the Dems Need stupid Women to Win Elections By Nina May . . . a woman who can read and think for herself

…The “smartest woman in the world”, Hillary Clinton, says “It is very troubling that a sales clerk who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get [it] through her employer’s health care plan because her employer does not think she should be using contraception.” She was referring to the recent Supreme Court ruling on Hobby Lobby. And all the other women in the audience, who were clueless about the substance of the ruling, clapped enthusiastically as she lied through her teeth.

…She mentions the expense of birth control . . . while neglecting to mention that 16 of these contraceptions would still be available to these women on the existing plan. But, just for arguments sake, you can get a month supply of birth control for $9. That is less than the increase in gas prices over the past few months. Why isn’t she screaming about that and demanding that Obama do something to save these women on fixed incomes from having to pay more for their gas? But, if birth control is a right, why isn’t she demanding that they get their gas free as a right?

What if a privately held company opposed the practice of genital mutilation and said the government could not force them to pay for it for their employees…

Why can’t pro-life people… owners and employers of a company, express… outrage at the killing of an unborn baby?

Since 50 percent of babies aborted are women, not only are their genitals mutilated, the entire body is.

Isn’t that an appropriate cause for outrage rather than the vilification that is being injected by Clinton, Ginsberg and other clueless women who worship at the alter of abortion?

Every time the issue of life . . . or abortion . . . is raised it is as though a button is pushed in the cosmos and liberal women just go nuts. It is the most sacred aspect of their political and philosophical belief system and to touch it is considered a blasphemy. What is it with them and killing unborn babies that is so precious? It defies logic…

These selfish women …drag their …children to pro-abortion rallies …telling their children that they regret that they did not make that choice when they had the chance. Do they really think kids don’t get the hypocrisy? “Oh, I love you now, but there was a point in your tiny life when I considered you less than human and potentially disposable, and I want every woman in the world to have the right to feel that same thing.”

There is a correlation between the increased rate of suicide, drug use, violence and murder and “mothers” who have implanted in their offspring the idea that at one point in their lives they were expendable and disposable…

…It is a head scratcher, that in this day and age, with all the technology available, with tiny preemie babies as young as five months being saved by every possible means, that you people still think it is ok to deliver a full term baby in a breach position . . . which is life threatening to the mom . . . poke it in the base of the skull with scissors and suck its brains out…

I love the feminist who’s argument for abortion is . . . if you are against abortion don’t have one. Ok, that’s fair, then if you don’t like guns, don’t buy one. Let’s make a deal . . . we’ll ban guns if you ban abortion. Crickets…

…Now is the time to unseat the red queen and find a truly intelligent woman who is worthy to lead.

…Yes Hillary . . . it does make a lot of difference, and we do care… Not all women are as stupid as you think.
