DENVER, August 18, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - On August 25th, Archbishop Charles Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Auxiliary Bishop of Denver the Most Rev. James Conley and leaders of other Christian denominations will join Dr. Alveda C. King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Director of African American Outreach for the Gospel of Life Ministries for a peaceful prayer vigil in front of the new Planned Parenthood Clinic in Stapleton.
The "Light in the Darkness" vigil, organized by the Denver Archdiocese's Respect Life office and the Office of Black Catholics, will begin at 7:30pm in Martin Luther King Park (E.38th St.), one block from the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains abortion clinic, and will end with a candlelight procession all around the perimeter of the new clinic.
The event will bring together Christian leaders from many denominations, including Pastor Ralph Beechum of House of Joy Miracle Deliverance Church who will offer prepared remarks, as well as Pastor Patrick L. Demmer, Jr. of Graham Memorial Community Church of God in Christ and Pastor Willard Johnson of Macedonia Baptist Church in Park Hill.
Colorado's Catholic bishops have been instrumental in the fight against Planned Parenthood ever since it was revealed late last year that Planned Parenthood had purchased land in Denver under a false name and was planning to build America's largest abortion mill under a shroud of secrecy.
Upon learning of Planned Parenthood's plans the bishops prepared a letter informing "all Catholics and people of good will" to "defend themselves and their beliefs against Planned Parenthood by every legal and ethical means at their disposal."
"Planned Parenthood calls itself pro-child, pro-woman, and pro-family. Yet it is an organization based on falsehoods about the human person, the family and community life," wrote the three bishops in November 2007.
According to their 2005-2006 annual report, Planned Parenthood abortionists performed 289,750 abortions across the United States in 2006 alone, which represents a nearly 10% percent increase since 2005.
Reiterating the message she delivered on Parliament Hill at Canada's most recent annual March for Life, King stated firmly that the pro-life movement represents those most affected by today's most pressing violation of human rights.
"The fight against abortion is a new frontier in the Civil Rights Movement," states Dr. King. "We are not following Martin's dream if we do not stand up for the voiceless."

Good for her!
I suspect many of my friends on this ping list will do likewise.
I simply do not understand how black Americans can vote for the Democratic Party given the party's absolutely horrid history and the party's continued policy of slavery through welfare.
Not to mention the group most disproportionately murdered in abortions are black babies.
Dr. Alveda King is a conservative (and I believe registered Republican), she endorsed Sam Brownback for the GOP nomination this year.
neice of, wife of, son of, another son of, Please understand what these people are about. money, honey. Don’t give me shiite about this. They CHARGE to go see their dad. They CHARGE for everything that has his name. They CHARGE..
Thanks for that info! That makes sense to me. I would imagine that this is not something that the liberal mainstream media would want people to know.
born Jan 15, 1983 - MLK's birthday
adopted Feb 3, 1983
This is ABSOLUTELY FALSE.
Dr. King is the ONLY member of the King family or King's advisers who has remained true to his legacy. She DOES NOT support what others are doing in his name and they have disavowed her.
Maybe next time you decide to slander someone you will get some FACTS.
MLK was pretty cool. He knew what he was doing. His family including his wife are a SHAME to his name.
They prefer to pretend she doesn't exist.
She is taking money to see his grave. Callin me a liar?
I think that you have NEVER been to his grave.
NO, she isn’t. Her relatives might be, but they have disavowed her.
What are you talking about?
I lived in Ga . I have the FACTS. Fact 1=Martins wife sued the city of Atlanta to prohibit any mention of his name without a payday..FACT
FACT=His son has been sued by his own mother for use of MLK.
FACT: His wife is DEAD.
FACT: His tomb is operated by the National Park Service of the Department of the Interior
FACT: NONE of this has ANYTHING to do with his niece.

I have the FACTS
Highly unlikely that you'd know a fact if it hit you in your single tooth.
The FACT is that MLK’s boyhood home, church and tomb are all operated by the National Park Service and admission is FREE.
God bless her.
Mirkwood, surely you must have some citable evidence for your charges against Alveda King, especially considering how wagglebee has debunked one of your main premises.
Got any cites?
What a woman! Prayers for the Vigil and may God bless her, Dr King.
I well known black woman.
A respected member of the King family, and she is conservative and pro-life.
I am so surprised I didn’t learn this from the MSM.
Thanks for the ping!
Thank GOD that SOMEONES doing it!
