WASHINGTON, DC – The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said today that she opposes abortion and believes it violates the civil rights of unborn children.
Alveda King is also taking the side of the Trump Administration in a battle with pro-abortion attorneys who are seeking to force the administration to facilitate an illegal immigrants abortion.
Yesterday, an appeals court has stopped a judge’s order issued the day before forcing the Trump Administration to facilitate an abortion for an illegal immigrant.
As LifeNews reported yesterday, a federal judge nominated by Barack Obama ordered the Trump Administration to allow an undocumented teenage girl in the state of Texas to have an abortion that could be funded partly at taxpayer expense. Judge Tanya Chutkan had ruled that the government must allow Jane Doe to get an abortion by Saturday to end the life of her 15-week-old unborn baby.
King says the government is right to protect the life of both mother and child.
“On October 19, 2017, a Judge orders the government to facilitate an abortion for a seventeen-year old illegal immigrant known as the “new Jane Roe;” with the ACLU representing the young mother. The Justice Department is seeking injunction to save life of baby. The shelter where the mother is housed has contacted a local pregnancy center and the grandmother of the baby to seek assistance for the mother and unborn child,” King explained.
The civil rights leader added: “Abortion is a civil wrong that violates the civil and human rights of unborn children; where is the lawyer for the baby?”
“In this case the office of the US Attorney General argues that the mother does not have a constitutional right to appeal to the US government for an elective abortion on demand as an illegal immigrant unless there is a medical emergency,” King said.
King said people need to remember the racial motivation behind the abortion industry that targets blacks and Latinos.
She explained: “Those in favor of the young mother having the abortion are proponents of an abortion agenda initiated by Margaret Sanger, a 20th century racist eugenicist who founded Planned Parenthood and is considered by some to be America’s “Mother of Abortion.” Sanger championed eugenics and racism in her day, going so far as be an advisor to the Klu-Klux-Klan, and to birth a Eugenics Movement which has resulted in the genocide of millions of blacks and other “undesirables.”
“In the 20th century we turned to Nonviolence as a key to this process. These principles of nonviolent conflict resolution and reconciliation are still helpful today: I learned these principles from my Uncle MLK, my father AD King, and grandfather Daddy King,” she concluded.
