Posted on 09/11/2010 1:27:13 PM PDT by rosettasister
Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests or Life and Founder of King for America, today called on the President and Congress to bear in mind civil rights and the life issue when trying to fix the economy.
Any meaningful economic recovery act undertaken by Congress must strive for a pro-life economic recovery, said Dr. King.
We are calling for sensible and reasonable acts that will support life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for every American.
These acts would include procreative reproductive health/choice efforts.
Films like Maafa21 and Blood Money provide significant research that support our urgent plea to our governing officials, said Alveda.
For decades many of our officials have governed as though there are not moral consequences to their economic policies.
That day is done, said Catherine Davis of the Toomanyaborted.com Campaign.
In this dismal economy, with seemingly endless unemployment, loss of homes, hope and American dreams, we are seeing millions and millions of our tax dollars going to fund organizations whose main purpose is to kill Americas children, said Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union.
We urge an immediate end to all abortion funding with taxpayer money.
Lets use our hard earned tax dollars to renew the spirit of our nation by helping Americans live not die! concluded Gardner.

Dr. King appeared on Glenn Beck TV Show yesterday, Friday, with Judge Napolitano.
Dr. Alveda King
To all those who care about life issues, please join the 40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil in 238 cities nationwide from September 22 to October 31.
But Haley Barbour says we should emphasize only the economy and leave pro-life issues on the back burner for now, as if aborting millions has no effect on the economy.
I hear that the liberals consider Alveda King a traitor. Remember she was at Glenn Beck’s rally?
And she’s pro-life.
And she said that her uncle Martin Luther King did not give his life to see same-sex marriage, that he wasn’t working for that type of civil rights event.
Even though she’s the niece of Dr. King and an ordained minister in her own right, the liberals hate her.
95% of blacks voted for obammy.
90% of blacks still support obammy.
Obammy is a BIG backer of abortion.
This is all so much pooh.
“Haley Barbour says we should emphasize only the economy and leave pro-life issues on the back burner for now, as if aborting millions has no effect on the economy.”
I missed that ... I heard the clip where he said Well, let them hear Marco Rubio talk for about three minutes, is a good starting place, I can tell you that. When he said he had a simple solution to get the base fired up again.
Was it in the same speech?
There is no hope for America until the American blacks, muslims, Hispanics, the media and other democrats start thinking of themselves as Americans first and foremost.
As long as they have greater allegiance to racial politics, the Koran, or their ultra-liberal agenda there is no hope that we will ever again become a united people.

The only reason there aren't many fewer people in the US is because of illegals. If there weren't tens of millions of illegals, people would see how many children have been killed before birth. A culture which accepts killing the helpless as a moral right is a culture destined to die.
What do I care who the liberals hate.
This woman is a hero to me. It takes courage to buck the tide.
Dr. Alveda King is a hero. She is standing where so many others who SHOULD — WON’T. I may not agree with her on every issue — but she is RIGHT where it counts. I’m glad I can stand beside her in retoring the nation.
And it’s absolutely true that abortion has murdered upwards of 50 million people since 1973 — a loss to our culture, our economy and our future that is incalculable. The promotion of “gay marriage” and all that is/will come from that — “gay adoption,” the redefinition of marriage, the equating of these so-called “alternative” forms of marriage with traditional marriage and then the FORCED acceptance of them at the threat (and certain persecution of) government action by regulations and laws, will all be the means by which to control, muzzle, silence and if necessary eliminate religious opposition to the goals of the Progressives. It may take years — decades even — but they’ve waited this long....
It’s amazing how a little knowledge of history can give one a certain feel for, an insight into the future. Whereas those who know no history haven’t a clue what they will fact on the morrow. I guess that’s why in so many public schools these days, History is a completely elective subject... Shameful, really, but completely predictable.
Title is a bit misleading.
