The Pro-life Movement is the Civil Rights Movement of today

The pro-life movement is the civil rights movement of today. That was the message of the 11th annual National March for Life that drew 7,800 to Parliament Hill May 8.


"We now treat unborn babies like blacks were treated," Alveda King, the daughter of civil rights activist Rev. A.D. King and niece of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., told a news conference sponsored by the parliamentary pro-life caucus.


Even thought DNA and ultrasound tell us that unborn babies are people, they are treated as if they are not. It is discrimination to get inconvenient people out of our lives by calling them subhuman, or a mere clump of cells, she said.


She decried the growing practice of sex selection abortion that has created skewed populations in countries like China. People want a boy, but they "hide their discriminatory attitudes towards females behind the discrimination of abortion. Blacks and the disabled are also targeted this way.
