    Appeals for African American leaders to step up and protect unborn babies from abortion are growing louder and louder this month as more pro-life advocates call on politicians to end their support of the abortion industry and instead defend the vulnerable. The latest appeal came from one of America’s most prominent black families. Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and a pro-life advocate, wrote an open letter to President Barack Obama this week, asking him to end abortion violence against unborn children. CNS News published King’s letter on Jan. 12: … Sir, you recently tweeted:...

    Ted Cruz is beginning to surge significantly in the polls in Iowa. Surely the evangelicals in Iowa are the key factor. Already, some of the political pundits are writing him off, likening him to Barry Goldwater, the libertarian-leaning firebrand, who was soundly defeated by Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Goldwater lost by a landslide. But, by the same token, Ronald Reagan won by landslides in 1980 and in 1984. And Reagan was perhaps more conservative than Goldwater. The question many are asking about Ted Cruz and his conservative values is: Will he be the new Goldwater or the new Reagan? Reagan...

The question resonates for this particular political confrontation but applies equally to the larger issue as a whole as we near four decades of abortion on demand in America post Roe v. Wade. We bother because, in the end, we will win.

    Contact: Margaret, Priests for Life, 888-735-3448, ext. 251 ATLANTA, Aug. 28 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today reflected on the passing of Sen. Edward Kennedy. "The Ted Kennedy I want to remember is the man who, before he embraced the pro-abortion cause, was like his dearly departed sister Eunice, who was pro-life. Senator Kennedy once compassionately and consistently fought for civil rights. In 1971, he wrote that every human being, wanted or unwanted, had the right to be born. He later changed his position and supported and even sponsored pro-abortion legislation.  There were many...

    Like many black women, I once believed the doctor who told me my babies were no more than "a blob of tissue." I wanted to believe it. Eventually, I realized I was wrong, that I was a secondary victim of abortion. I repented and found healing through God. Today, I work in the civil rights movement of the our century -- the right of every one of every race to live... Abortion has taken a gruesome toll on the black community, killing more than AIDS and crime combined. Some 14 million black babies have been aborted since the 1973 U.S....

    Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said today that the killing of late-term abortionist George Tiller brings tremendous sorrow. "Two years ago, I visited George Tiller's clinic in hope of telling him that babies desire mercy," said Dr. King. "I wanted to share with him the harm I experienced from abortion. My prayer was that one day he would join me in repentance. I am deeply sorry that his life was taken before that could happen." "It's especially horrifying that Dr. Tiller was shot in church," added Dr. King....

    ATLANTA, April 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said today that among the many flaws with the recent Department of Homeland Security domestic terrorism memo is its illogical attempt to link pro-lifers with hate groups. "Abortion is the white supremacist's best friend," said Dr. King. "It eliminates black babies at much higher rates than white babies. Disproportionately more abortions among African American women mean they suffer physical and emotional trauma in greater percentages than others. To say, as the Department of Homeland Security does, that...

Some students were surprised to learn that was the topic of her lecture. Several of the about 650-person audience walked out. "I felt a little misled personally," said Flint senior Detrone Turner, who said he thought the speech was...

    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...

    Alveda King was 12 years old when a bomb went off under her Birmingham home in 1963. “We were all in the house. And my father first rescued my mother,” she said last week. Her surname and the date of the bombing are unmistakable clues to the causes of the event. She is the niece of civil rights hero the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. But it wasn’t only her famous uncle’s work in a segregated South that got her home bombed. It was also the work of her father, the Rev. A.D. King, who has rested in the shadow...
