Abortion and Euthanasia Related

Abortion and Euthanasia Related (3)

Evangelist Alveda King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn with Priests for Life, citing recent quotes from a seemingly unlikely pair of social justice headliners, Walter Hoye of Issues4Life and BET Award Winner Jessie Williams, notes that SCOTUS is out of touch with the American Dream. In a not so surprising move yesterday, SCOTUS overturned Texas law that sought to protect women from substandard care in Texas abortion mills. "This decision will hurt women and kill babies," King said.  "Don’t be misled — you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant."(Galatians 6:7 NLT) Citing a report from Walter Hoye at issues4life foundation, King noted abortion is the number one killer of Blacks in America; higher than heart attacks, diabetes, and hypertension. Hoye states that according to Violence Policy Center, there were 6,217 Black American homicides for the year 2013. When compared to Black American abortions, the 429,000 abortions in Black America for 2013 represent 69 times the number of Black American homicides. Hoye also cited a recent analysis by Dennis Howard, President of the Movement for a Better America, who has written extensively on abortion demographics, which shows that out of every 1,680 pregnant Black American women 15-44, 1,000 will give birth to their child and 680 will abort their baby. The analysis was based on data from the U.S. Statistical Abstract for 2013 and the National Vital Statistics Report, Vol. 64, No. 1 dated January 15, 2015. King also applauded remarks by Jessie Williams, the actor/activist who accepted the recent BET Humanitarian Award for his work in the black community. After going through his customary thank yous and acknowledgements, Williams said: "A system built to divide and impoverish and destroy us cannot stand if we do." Connecting the dots, King summed it up pointing that the fight for freedom begins in the womb; and by quoting her Uncle MLK and colleague Rev. Frank Pavone: "Hey SCOTUS, you and the abortion industry can't serve the public by killing the public. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere!" King added: "Break every chain. In the end, natural law, God's law will always trump common law. Do not fear or be confused or deceived. Remain prayerful. Keep looking up. God will have the final word in this matter." ### Media Contact:Leslie This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
NEW YORK, January 13, 2016 | Christian News Service | -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Dr. Alveda King, Director of African-American Outreach, issued the following statement today to support Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin) after he was criticized by the Congressional Black Caucus for statements he made about abortion in the African-American community. “We commend Congressman Sean Duffy for pointing out the obvious, namely, that far too many African-American leaders are ignoring the devastating impact abortion is having on black lives.  Death by forceps or bullets is death all the same. Alveda's uncle, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., said, ‘History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.” Father Pavone and Dr. King commented: “The silence of the Congressional Black Caucus in defending unborn African-American lives truly is disturbing.  How many deaths will it take for its members to defend our community – the human community, born and unborn? “Congressman Duffy spoke the truth in love.  If members of the Congressional Black Caucus or any other persons are offended by the truth, they need to examine themselves, not criticize the messenger.” Dr. King has been addressing the issue of the silence of not just the Congressional Black Caucus but many prominent Black leaders over the disheartening and disproportionate rates of abortion among the Black community most notably in another open letter in July of 2015 amid the Planned Parenthood controversy over the selling of baby body parts. In related matters, Dr. King addressed the issue of gun violence and abortion in an open letter to President Obama, and Father Pavone commended Iowa Rep. Steve King for his decision to leave his seat empty for the unborn during the State of the Union address on Tuesday. ### CONTACT:Leslie Palma347-286-7277
ATLANTA GA, January 12, 2016 | Christian News Service | -- The following open letter to President Obama is submitted by Dr. Alveda King: Dear President Obama, my prayers are with you as I write this letter today, anticipating your State of the Union address. Sir, you recently tweeted: "If there's even one thing we can do, if there's just one life we can save—we've got an obligation to try.” Your appeal seemed to be directed at gun control. Yet, the one life chord is vibrating on a frequency that embraces not just victims of gun violence, but even reaching the innocent lives in the womb. ““I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” They said, “What is that to us? See to it yourself.”” – Matthew 27:4 ESV  Dear President Obama, in the Bible there have been great kings and rulers. Some served God, some did not. In many cases some of these rulers came to know and serve God because of prayerful people within their courts and cabinets. I’m sure you have such voices around you. In your recent gun control speech you spoke of Zaevion, a high school student, and his heroism as he dove on top of three girls to shield them from the bullets.  He was shot in the head.  The girls were spared.   You quoted John 15:16, “Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.” To lay down one’s life for a friend takes an extremely selfless act, something we don’t hear about too often. As you spoke and began to become misty eyed, I could see the compassion you have for those who are senselessly killed by guns. I believe that many Americans feel the same way you do, not only for gun violence but for any type of violence.  Mother Teresa once said, “I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. I’m writing today to appeal to your compassion for those lost to violent acts and I ask you to consider that what our world needs is not just gun control but violence control. We need to turn to LOVE for the answer. I do not want to politicize the issue of guns or abortion and that’s why I’m inviting you to step out of the political arena and invite…
