Alveda King Slams Black Caucus for Planned Parenthood Support
As undercover videos of Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting and selling baby body parts goes viral, the Congressional Black Caucus has remained silent. Pro-life activist Alveda King recently spoke with CBN News about the controversy and her call for African-American leaders to take action against Planned Parenthood. The Caucus, which is known to support African Americans, partly helps fund Planned Parenthood. King asks how they could support an organization she says targets African Americans for abortions. According to CDC reports, a whopping 35 percent of abortions in the United States are performed on African American women and their pre-born children -the highest abortion rates among all ethnic groups.
King reminded the CBC that Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, targeted the black community. Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie, of The Catholic Association, spoke with CBN’s Maira Alejandra about Planned Parenthood’s strategy of placing clinics in minority communities. The latest undercover video, released by the Center for Medical Progress, features Mary Gatter, a senior medical director for Planned Parenthood. In it, Gatter discussed prices she would charge for intact fetal body parts.

Alveda King says abortion movement rooted in racism
On Feb. 18, King shared her pro-life message in Little Rock. Dr. Alveda C. King believes in a woman’s right to choose. During her two-day visit, King met with various church leaders and was recognized at the state capitol in the House and Senate.
Two of the three clinics where abortions are done in Arkansas are located in predominantly black communities. For King, who experienced racial hatred first hand in the midst of the civil right struggle when her family’s home was bombed in Birmingham, Ala., said abortions are linked to racism. Aside from the racist history with abortions, King shared her own personal testimony about abortion and how it affected various parts of her family. King’s parents, noted civil rights activist Rev. A.D.
King and Naomi Barber King, were engaged when her mother got pregnant with her. It was only in recent years she found out about her mother’s contemplated abortion. In 1966, King said her uncle Dr. Martin Luther King received the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood, but did not attend the ceremony. King had an even more personal testimony – she had two abortions, one in 1971 and 1973.
King said forgiving the abortion doctor was one step toward healing. The crowd wrote down questions for King to answer, including how to get the African American community more involved in pro-life outreach, particularly praying outside the abortion clinics.

Evangelist Alveda King on The Dangerous Intent of Unproven Accusations – BCNN1 WP
While recovering from jet lag in the midst of my first visit to Rome, Italy, I was stunned by a report that Congressman Trent Franks has been asked to step down from office. Unproven accusations are designed to bring strife, suspicion, division, hurt and harm to humanity. Such accusations not only hurt people’s reputations; they rend the fabric of the One Blood/One Human Race Community. This reminds me of the tragedy of Emmett Till who was unjustly slaughtered due to an accusation that was proven to be false after Emmett was brutally murdered. Such accusations can poison the atmosphere in society.
Unsuspecting people can come to believe the worst about their neighbors or community leaders simply by hearing and believing false accusations. Once the vicious cycle begins, people can be motivated by the desire to accuse others. Even as a post abortive secondary victim of abortion, I work very hard to remain in a position of repentance and forgiveness for those whom I hurt and for those who hurt me on my journey through life. A testimony should never seek only to expose a painful wrong, but to seek healing and reveal and discover how God can make things right for all parties involved. Enemies of Agape Love and Truth seek to have us accuse each other and cause strife and division.
God’s law is the law of love, where people are led to repent, forgive, and be healed; these are truths for life which are designed for us to follow.
