Dr. Alveda King’s Views on Abortion

When thinking back on the civil rights movement, one of the first people to come to mind is Martin Luther King, Jr. King was a champion of human rights for all people. In a similar fashion, King’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, has carried on the struggle. Alveda is an activist in both the Civil Rights and Pro-Life Movements. 

This quote rings very true in the pro-life movement. The Dream cannot even begin to be realized by babies who are deprived of their lives. One reason why abortion is especially troubling to King is because minorities such as herself are much more likely to receive abortions. This is in part because of Planned Parenthood’s strategy of targeting minorities. Another reason why this is so important to King is because she herself had two abortions early on in her life, and she feels she was very much deceived by Planned Parenthood. 

In order for the Dream to be realized by all people, abortion must be ended.

MLK’s Niece Defends Trump: ‘I Don’t Believe He Is a Racist’

If you’re familiar with Alveda King, the niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther Jr., you already know she’s not on the same page with most members of her family and even most black folk in America when it comes to politics. King, a conservative and an outspoken foe of abortion rights, has long been weapon for Trump defenders to rebut claims that the president was racist. To commemorate the holiday, Donald Trump Jr. posted a photo of himself and Alveda King on Twitter and sang her praises. 

This picture bring back fond memories of when I had the honor of campaigning with Alveda King, niece of the great and amazing Trump supporter. The comments were reported in several media outlets and confirmed by Sen. Dick Durbin. The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!

Dr. Alveda King talks about her abortions

Dr. Alveda King, pro-life activist, describes how she was tricked into having an abortion she didn’t want. The next day, I was admitted to the hospital, and our baby was aborted. As soon as I woke up, I knew that something was very wrong. Over the next few years, I experienced medical problems. 

I had trouble bonding with my son and his five siblings who were born after the abortions. I suffered from eating disorders, depression, nightmares, sexual dysfunctions, and a host of other issues related to the abortion that I chose to have. I experienced uncontrollable waves of guilt over the abortion, I chose to have. My children have all suffered from knowing that they have a brother or sister that their mother chose to abort. This has been and still is very painful for all of us. 

My mother and grandparents were very sad to learn about the loss of the baby. The aborted child’s father also regrets the abortions.
