MLK’s Niece: Planned Parenthood Claim His Legacy ‘Intertwined’ with Abortion Movement Is ‘Inhuman,’ ‘Inhumane’

Monday, after a Planned Parenthood tweet associated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with the abortion movement, Alveda King condemned the abortion group’s post, calling it both “inhuman” and “inhumane.”
On the national holiday memorializing the late civil rights leader, Planned Parenthood claimed that King’s “life & legacy” are “intertwined” with abortion rights activism:
“We honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life & legacy as the fight for racial justice, economic equity, & reproductive freedom are undeniably intertwined. This fight is one we cannot do alone, & we are proud to stand w/ our partners who are on the frontlines of this fight. #MLKDay”
In a reaction to the tweet provided to, King’s niece, Alveda King said Planned Parenthood’s "inhuman" and "inhumane" claim dishonored her uncle:
“To dishonor a prophet by raising a political banner which supports killing innocent babies on MLK’s birthday is so inhuman. To dishonor a prophet by raising a political banner on his birthday is so inhumane.”
“King sought after the spirit not the flesh. He was after the divine,” King’s niece continued, calling on people of all races to oppose “crimes against humanity,” such as abortion:
“20th century skin color race card inflammation will not solve crimes against humanity; including abortion, human trafficking, modern slavery, oppression. MLK did not serve politics. He didn’t serve government. He served God. We are not color blind; we are one human race; one blood, created in living color.”
