Dr. Alveda King, niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., speaks out about reversal of the "Mexico City policy," which occurred just days after Barack Obama became America's 44th president.
The Mexico City policy, first enacted via executive order by then President Ronald Reagan, prohibited use of U.S. tax dollars to fund or promote abortions in foreign countries. Dr. King, a well-known pro-life activist and speaker, notes that President Obama reversed that policy last week, pouring several hundred-million dollars into foreign abortion programs.
According to King, that policy reversal takes taxpayer dollars "that could be used for feeding our families, educating our children, and giving our citizens of this wonderful country somewhere to live."
The civil-rights activist makes it clear that she is not against foreign aid. "[I]f we want to help people in Mexico and other countries, then certainly they need food and medicine as well -- [but] abortion is not what people need," she emphasizes.
As King points out, the labor supply in some nations is already struggling because of abortion. Those countries, she notes, are not producing enough babies to eventually enter the work force.
"In any civilization where people begin to turn on their young, to kill their babies, and when motherhood [or parenthood] is no longer a sacred task ...then we begin to see those civilizations crumble," says Dr. King. And the United States, she warns, is also heading down that slippery slope.
Alveda King is a former member of the Georgia House of Representatives and the founder of King for America.
King is 100% correct.
Eugenics. And the sheeple whose gene pool are being slaughtered walk happily into the showers....voluntarily.
