ATLANTA, April 14, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today said that racism and abortion are linked. Dr. King has, for the past two weeks been involved in commemorative events of the 40th anniversary of the death of her uncle Martin Luther King Jr. the famed leader of the civil rights movement.
"Abortion and racism are both symptoms of a fundamental human error," stated Dr. King. "The error is thinking that when someone stands in the way of our wants, we can justify getting that person out of our lives. Abortion and racism stem from the same poisonous root, selfishness."
"Of course, to get someone out of our way, we have to come up with rationales for doing so," added Dr. King. "We create the deceptions that the other person is less important, less worthy, less human. These pretenses help us feel a bit better about discriminating against someone because of his skin color or gestational age, but they're still lies and our actions are still wrong."
"The truth is that we are all humans belonging to only one race," said Dr. King. "Racial reconciliation can only mean that we reconcile to the truth that we are all one race of human beings created equal. Even though we have ethnic distinctions, those distinctions do not separate us from the human race any more than do our stage of development or state of physical dependency. We are all fully human. When we face this truth, there is no justification for treating those who look different than us as lesser beings. If we simply treat other people the way we'd like to be treated, racism, abortion, and other forms of inhumanity will be things of the past."
In a speech on the day of the 40th anniversary, Dr. King said: "The fight against abortion is a new frontier in the civil rights movement."
This is the absolute truth!

Dr. King must be applauding from his grave.
..which abjectly supports both rascism and abortion.
I hope most Americans make that link, because the rascism part can cut both ways.
May God bless this King. I will march with her anytime.
Abortion and racism stem from the same poisonous root
and on a less snarky note: good on her!
Yup - Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood - the eugenics program!
So does this mean she’s voting McCain?
Thanks for the link.
Dr. King gets it, she has dedicated her life to fighting for life and to ending the stranglehold that the left has placed on blacks.
had that little cartoon waiting on an itchy trigger finger... Didn’t ya’?
I assume so, she’s a Republican and had endorsed Brownback early on.
This lady truly does get it and carries on the philosophical legacy of her uncle.
She gets it!
Look, abortion is bad...racism is bad...but this is the STUPIDEST argument I’ve ever, ever read. It’s over the top things like this that sets your cause back.
Absolutely not....he's pro-abortion
To which you responded:
Look, abortion is bad...racism is bad...but this is the STUPIDEST argument Ive ever, ever read. Its over the top things like this that sets your cause back.
Are you saying that racism (trying to hold other races back) IS NOT based in selfishness? Are you saying that abortion (killing a baby for convenience) IS NOT based in selfishness?
You actually think that this is "stupid" and "over the top"? If you want to see stupid and over the top maybe you should go back and read what the RINOs in WAnkerville say.
