In the Spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: Hope for Life

January 22, 2013 – “Our nation greatly needs our prayers and personal sacrifices”  (Cardinal Sean O’Malley, on the 40th anniversary today of a U.S. Supreme Court decision).

This decision:

                                    legalized slavery in the territories of the United States

                                    legalized racial segregation in public facilities under the doctrine                                     of “separate but equal”

effectively legalized an abortion industry which takes the lives of
babies of African descent at an alarmingly disproportionate rate as
compared to the general population.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, “most abortions in the United States are obtained by minority women,” and the rate for black women is almost five times that of white women (http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/gpr/11/3/gpr110302.html).

Dr. Alveda C. King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., speaks publicly about the impact abortion is having on African-American people. She writes of her father, Rev. Dr. Alfred Daniel Williams King, that he

is credited with organizing the Birmingham and Louisville Civil Rights
Activities. His home was bombed in Birmingham, and his church was bombed
in Louisville during the heat of the struggle. Daddy King was the first to
publicly announce that ‘both of my sons were murdered for civil rights.’
