‘I have a dream, also’: Alveda King, MLK's niece, brings anti-abortion message to Park Ridge church
In the spirit of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., his niece, Dr. Alveda King, said she has a dream of her own. St.
Paul of the Cross invited Alveda King to speak at the Park Ridge parish to help kick off its commemoration of Respect Life Month in October. She’s also a former college professor, best-selling author and a former Georgia statehouse representative. In her talk, she drew parallels between the civil rights that her uncle advocated for and her efforts. She referenced scripture that addresses common life questions people may have for abortion and said that while God does give people a choice between the life and death of you or your child, it does not say it’s yours to choose. Lake Zurich resident Pietrina Probst said the presentation was worth sitting in on.
Probst sat watching the presentation with her mother, and she said that she’s previously seen Alveda King talk on news programs. During the question-and-answer session after her presentation, one member of the audience asked whether Alveda King had been uninvited to speak at a college graduation ceremony because of her message. She said it does happen and she tries to look past that. She said she doesn’t feel her stance on abortion is a divisive viewpoint that should separate people of different races.

Dr. Alveda King Counters Trump ‘Racism’ Claims, Slams Facebook for Blocking Pro-Life Message
Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., joined Breitbart News Sunday on the eve of her uncle’s namesake holiday, hitting back at racism accusations against President Donald Trump and levying her own complaints against ultra-liberal Facebook. There’s all other kind of legislation and things that President Trump is passing, including getting a lot of black folks out of jail – he’s working on doing that believe it or not and putting them back to work. Putting America back to work – African-Americans especially because our job rate or our hiring rate was so low and it’s going up along with everybody else’s rate.
He sees Americans as the people he is supposed to serve and he’s doing that. Trump himself similarly dismissed the accusers, which included Rep. Lewis himself, earlier Sunday. He cares about the plight of everybody who’s been under-served, mis-served, mistreated, and he’s equalizing that. King also expressed her frustration with tech giant Facebook, who recently blocked the pro-life Roe v.
Wade documentary – on which she is collaborating with other activists – from raising funds from the social media site’s ads. Facebook later yielded to pressure and allowed the team to crowdfund.
Civil Rights for the Unborn
Inform African-Americans and the general public about the harmful impact of abortion and artificial family planning. Activate the community to combat the harmful impact and scourge of abortion and genocide. One blood – Value Life from womb till natural death. King Rules, a new book by Dr. Alveda King.
Order an autographed copy at ProLifeProducts.org. Excerpt of King Rules Afterward by Fr. Frank Pavone: It is Alveda Kings awareness of God, from whom every person and every value takes its origin, that shapes her convictions and inspires her actions. She is a woman of God, aware that when she speaks and writes of values, she is not putting herself above anyone, nor seeking to impose her will, but rather humbly acknowledging that because there is a God in heaven, none of us can be God on earth – and therefore the only path forward is one of absolute respect for the unity of the human family and the dignity of human life. Such a people will understand why its important not to just de-fund PP but to expose any and everyone who plays a part in their wicked schemes.
