Alveda King Blows Up Another Liberal Lie From Planned Parenthood

January 24, 2010

There are way too many liberal lies out there.  As one example, liberals have owned many large cities for a hundred years — and what has that dominion brought the residents of those cities who struggle with high poverty, crime, drugs, out-of-wedlock pregnancies, and despair?  The cities with the highest rates of all of these things can’t blame Republicans – because the voters never gave Republicans any chance to solve these problems.  Who knows, if voters of cities such as Detroit or Chicago were to give Republicans a shot, maybe they’d get another Giuliani?

But they’ll likely never find out, because they have bought in to so many liberal lies that the Democrats own them.  And take them for granted.

Here’s another lie that liberals want you to believe: that Martin Luther King is smiling down from heaven as nearly half of all black babies are ripped apart in abortion mills.

DR. KING TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD: YOUR LIES ABOUT MARTIN LUTHER KING ARE HURTING AMERICA!

From Dr. Alveda King

Washington, DC – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., responded to Planned Parenthood’s King Day press release linking the work of the abortion business to the civil rights leader.

“Every year Planned Parenthood tries to imply that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would approve of what it does today because he received an award from the organization 44 years ago,” said Dr. King. “Every year they lie. My Uncle stood for equal protection and non-violence – two concepts that Planned Parenthood violates every day by being the nation’s largest abortion business.”

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, stated that Planned Parenthood is no stranger to falsehoods. “Videotape reveals that Planned Parenthood doesn’t tell the truth to women and doesn’t tell legal authorities about possible criminal activity,” said Fr. Pavone. “Its implied claims about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. are just more of Planned Parenthood’s stock in trade — deceit.”

“Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did not attend the event where his award was presented. We don’t even know if he wrote the words of the acceptance speech that was read at the banquet,” added Dr. King. “In 1966, abortion on demand was unthinkable. To imply that Uncle Martin’s receipt of that award constitutes his endorsement of what Planned Parenthood engages in today – the destruction of human lives – is an outrage.”

Dr. King is attending the events surrounding the 2010 Annual March for Life in Washington, DC, where she will give her post abortion testimony at a Silent No More Awareness Campaign rally, along with actress Jennifer O’Neil and many other post abortive women and men who regret lost fatherhood.

King also said that “Planned Parenthood’s attack on pregnancy care centers is deceitful and outrageous. Their claims that abortion is safe are so false. Abortion is linked to breast and cervical cancer and so many other health problems. Abortion isn’t health care. Of course a woman experiencing an unexpected pregnancy is distressed. That’s why they need love and not abortion, which is really a health threat to the women and a death warrant for their children.”

DR. ALVEDA C. KING: Daughter of the late slain civil rights activist Rev. A. D. King and Niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Founder of King for America, Inc. Mother of six and doting grandmother. Consultant to the Africa Humanitarian Christian Fellowship. Former college professor. MA degree in Business Management. Published author of Sons of Thunder, The King Family Legacy and I Don’t Want Your Man, I Want My Own. Doctorate of Laws conferred by Saint Anslem College. Served on the boards and committees of Coalition of African American Pastors, and the Judeo-Christian Coalition for Constitutional Restoration. Served in the Georgia State House of Representatives. Accomplished actress and songwriter. She is a voice for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, speaking about her regret for her abortion. During the years of the Civil Rights Movement, led by her Uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Alveda’s family home was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama. “Daddy’s house was bombed, then in Louisville, Kentucky his church office was bombed. I was also jailed during the open housing movement,” she recalls. Alveda has continued her long-term work as a civil rights activist. Advocate for School Choice as a civil rights issue. Strong advocate for life of the unborn, faith in God not faith in government bureaucracy.

If there were a line to stand in to thank you for your stand for life, I would be in it.  Thank you for your love to both mothers and children, and thank you for your love for the truth, Alveda.

Some salient facts should demonstrate why Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (a Republican, by the way), would never have championed abortion:

But, abortion is a big business as well. Planned Parenthood performs around 300,000 abortions annually. It received more than 350 million dollars last year toward a total income of over 900 million dollars. To that end, it covers up the physical and sexual abuse of underage females, increased breast cancer rates, and severe emotional trauma resulting in increased suicide rates. How can any organization that protects the perpetrators of sexual abuse of young girls and is unconcerned that post abortive women commit suicide at twice the rate of their peers claim to be pro-woman? Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, a self professed Nazi sympathizer, said this when referring to prevention of births of Blacks and Jews:

“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”

And, referring to blacks, she said:

“Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need … We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock.”

Just as Margaret Sanger envisioned, Planned Parenthood operates 80 percent of its clinics in minority neighborhoods. Almost as many African American children are aborted as are born. A black baby is three times more likely to be killed in the womb as a white baby. Since Roe vs Wade, abortion has reduced the black population by 25 percent of what it would have been. Twice as many African Americans have died from abortion as have died from violent crimes, heart disease, accidents and AIDS combined. Every three days more African Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in all its history.

Yet, Planned Parenthood holds a Margaret Sanger day each year, nearly elevating her to a sainthood of sorts. They present the “Maggie” (Margaret Sanger) award for promotion of their agenda by the media. Is there any other organization in America that could have so strong a following, command hundreds of millions of dollars in federal tax money and be promoted in our schools, yet be as openly and vehemently racist as this? Truth is the greatest enemy of Planned Parenthood and organizations like them and truth is our greatest ally.

Are we better off? Are families stronger? Are children emotionally healthier and happier? The answer is no.

The warning from God to those who are determined in their pride to reject His ways in Proverbs 8:36 comes immediately to mind:

“But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death.”

And abortion is nothing if it is not the love of death.  Death as the solution for godless life.

I stand with Dr. Alveda King with the proclamation that anyone who has read and loved Martin Luther King’s great speeches should be offended that he would have championed the killing field of almost half of all black Americans by abortion.

Jill Stanek On Why Barack Obama Voted For Infanticide

August 21, 2008

Top 10 reasons Obama voted against the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act

by Jill Stanek

Here are the top 10 reasons Barack Obama has variously stated why he voted against Illinois’ Born Alive Infant Protection Act when state senator.

10. Babies who survive their abortions are not protected by the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution. Speaking against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act on the IL Senate floor on March 30, 2001, Obama, the sole verbal opponent to the bill stated:

… I just want to suggest… that this is probably not going to survive constitutional scrutiny.

Number one, whenever we define a previable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a – child, a nine-month-old – child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place.

I mean, it – it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute. For that purpose, I think it would probably be found unconstitutional.

9. A ban to stop aborted babies from being shelved to die would be burdensome to their mothers. She alone should decide whether her baby lives or dies. Before voting “no” for a 2nd time in the Senate Judiciary Committee on March 5, 2002, Obama stated:

What we are doing here is to create one more burden on women, and I can’t support that.

During a speech at Benedictine University in October 2004, Obama said, according to the Illinois Leader, that “the decision concerning a baby should be left to a woman, but that he does not see himself as supportive of abortion.”

8. Wanting to stop live aborted babies from being shelved to die was all about politics. During that same speech at Benedictine University, Obama said, according to the Illinois Leader, “the bill was unnecessary in Illinois and was introduced for political reasons.”

obama%20and%20baby.jpg7. There was no proof. Also during the Benedictine University speech, Obama said, according to the Illinois Leader, that “there was no documentation that hospitals were actually doing what was alleged in testimony presented before him in committee.”

6. Aborting babies alive and letting them die is a doctor’s prerogative. An Obama spokesman told the Chicago Tribune in August 2004 that Obama voted against Born Alive because it included provisions that “would have taken away from doctors their professional judgment when a fetus is viable.”

5. Anyway, doctors don’t do that. Obama told the Chicago Sun-Times in October 2004 he opposed Born Alive because “physicians are already required to use life-saving measures when fetuses are born alive during abortions.”

4. Aborting babies alive and letting them die is a religious issue. During their U.S. Senate competition Alan Keyes famously said:

Christ would not stand idly by while an infant child in that situation died…. Christ would not vote for Barack Obama, because Barack Obama has voted to behave in a way that it is inconceivable for Christ to have behaved.

Obama has always mischaracterized Keyes’ rationale for condemning Obama by implying Keyes was simply making a statement against Obama’s pro-abortion position, which is untrue. Keyes pointedly stated he was condemning Obama for his support of infanticide.

Nevertheless, live birth abortion must be included in the list of procedures Obama condones. Obama responded first to Keyes by saying, as quoted in his July 10, 2006, USA Today op ed:

… [W]e live in a pluralistic society, and that I can’t impose my religious views on another.

obama%20family.jpg3. Aborting babies alive and letting them die violates no universal principle. In the same USA Today piece, Obama said he reflected on that first answer, decided it was a “typically liberal response,” and revised it:

… But my opponent’s accusations nagged at me…. If I am opposed to abortion for religious reasons but seek to pass a law banning the practice, I cannot simply point to the teachings of my church. I have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all.

2. Sinking Born Alive was simply about political oneupsmanship. Obama has this quote on his website:

Pam Sutherland, the president and CEO of the Illinois Planned Parenthood Council, told ABC News. “We worked with him specifically on his strategy. The Republicans were in control of the Illinois Senate at the time. They loved to hold votes on ‘partial birth’ and ‘born alive’. They put these bills out all the time… because they wanted to pigeonhole Democrats….”

And the #1 reason Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act was:

1. The IL Born Alive Infant Protection Act was a ploy to undercut Roe v. Wade. During a debate against Keyes in October 2004, Obama stated:

Now, the bill that was put forward was essentially a way of getting around Roe vs. Wade…. At the federal level, there was a similar bill that passed because it had an amendment saying this does not encroach on Roe vs. Wade. I would have voted for that bill.

This was an out-and-out lie. The definition of “born alive” in the federal and Illinois versions were identical. The only difference came in paragraph (c), which was originally identical in both versions but changed on the federal level.

Illinois’ paragraph (c): A live child born as a result of an abortion shall be fully recognized as a human person and accorded immediate protection under the law.

Federal paragraph (c): Nothing in this section shall be construed to affirm, deny, expand, or contract any legal status or legal right applicable to any member of the species homo sapiens at any point prior to being “born alive” as defined in this section.

When the senator sponsoring the IL bill tried to amend IL’s paragraph (c), Amendment 1 below, to be the same as the federal paragraph (c), Barack Obama himself, as chairman of the committee hearing the bill, refused, and he then also killed the bill (click to enlarge).
