Billboards of Black Baby Are Spreading Hard Truth: Nothing Good Comes from Abortion – Dr. Alveda King


Priests for Life


Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate and Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, said today that the “Black babies are an endangered species” billboard campaign by is causing controversy because it points out hard truth.


“Abortion on demand has always been sold – and ‘sold’ is the word – as an answer to a whole host of problems, but instead of eliminating economic hardship, familial stress, or societal ills, it has only eliminated people, a disproportionate number of whom were African Americans,” said Dr. King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  “Like the stunning video Maafa, the ‘black babies are an endangered species’ billboards bring home the message that abortion is predicated on lies.  It’s time that those lies were exposed.”
