Alveda King: Abortion exterminating black leaders
Charlie Butts – OneNewsNow -
Residents of Chicago’s south side are seeing pro-life billboards that are part of the latest metropolitan campaign drawing attention to black genocide.
The 20 billboards — part of a campaign by a media group called Life Always — demonstrate the devastation of abortion on African-Americans. Dr. Alveda King of Priests for Life and King for America tells OneNewsNow that one billboard has a silhouette of President Obama with the words “every 21 minutes our next possible leader is aborted.”
“[And] that is very true,” she reiterates. “The same company had a billboard that said the most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb. That [also] has been true.
“So abortion hurts women, abortion kills children, and it cripples the community,” she summarizes.
According to statistics, about 36 percent of babies who are aborted are African-American. Dr. King, who is the niece of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., says she understands President Obama’s mother considered abortion — thus the use of Obama’s image on one of the billboards.
“And certainly if his mother had aborted him, he would not be the president — so that sign is really true,” says the pro-life activist. “Black leaders are actually being exterminated.”
And that, she concludes, is a sobering thought that ought to wake up African-Americans and the population in general to the reality of abortion and to this message about abortion clinics: “They are not your friend — and so it’s danger to you, mother; it’s danger to the baby who is killed,” says King.
The pro-life billboards have been used effectively in several cities and continue to generate discussion of life vs. abortion.
