ATLANTA, January 12, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - After news broke of controversial remarks by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid concerning President Obama's race, Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., called out the top Democrat for his discriminatory stance against the personhood of unborn children.
Reid has since made the public rounds asking forgiveness for private remarks made in 2008, when he referred to then-presidential candidate Barack Obama as "light-skinned" and "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one," as revealed in the recently-published book "Game Change."
Dr. Alveda King indicated that the deeply pro-abortion senators apologies are inadequate, since they fail to address his insensitivity to the unborn.
"Senator Reid has apologized to the President for his remarks about the President's skin color and speech, but the Senator's callous insensitivity extends to more than African Americans," said Dr. King.
"Senator Reid is trying to dramatically increase the number of abortions and violate the consciences of most Americans by forcing all of us to pay for abortion on demand in the health care bill. The Senator's speech hints at a discriminatory mindset; his actions toward the unborn clearly show that he regards some people as less than human."
Dr. King nails it here!
So far I’m liking what she’s been saying... Atlanta could sorely use leadership like her’s if she’s the real deal.
She is most certainly the real deal:
Very cool - thanks!
Way to go, Alveda! Tell it like it is!
