Zenit, a Catholic news agency, has an interview with Alveda King, niece of slain civil-rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. She has some choice things to say:
In the African-American communities, abortion is the primary agenda. They also offer birth control and some health services, but the emphasis is on abortion for black parents….The proper solution is righteousness and holy living, including abstinence and marriage. This is the case for all people, regardless of nationality and socioeconomic status….My grandfather, Daddy King, was very firm about the life of the unborn, and rejected the idea of abortion.
I’m glad to see that there are voices of reason like Alveda’s in the black community.
