Martin Luther King’s Niece speaks out on racism and abortion

Dawn Eden highlights “a searing opt-ed” for the Washington Times written by Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, at the Americans United for Life blog (emphasis mine):

When she had two of her own children aborted during the years following Roe v. Wade, King believed the doctor who told her that her babies were no more than “a blob of tissue.” But, as she writes, she repented and came to realize she was “a secondary victim of abortion.” Today she devotes her life and work to showing Americans and the world how the abortion epidemic devastates the black community, subverting her uncle’s dream:

Abortion and racism are evil twins, born of the same lie. Where racism now hides its face in public, abortion is accomplishing the goals of which racism only once dreamed. Together, abortionists are destroying humanity at large and the black community in particular.

Abortion has taken a gruesome toll on the black community, killing more than AIDS and crime combined. Some 14 million black babies have been aborted since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in all stages in all 50 states. That’s equal to one-third of the number of blacks living today.

By the abortion industry’s own statistics, black women are 4.8 times more likely to abort than are non-Hispanic white women. Blacks comprise about 13 percent of the population, yet have 37 percent of all abortions. …

A majority, perhaps as many as 75 percent, of abortion clinics are in areas with high minority populations. Abortion apologists will say this is because they want to serve the poor. You don’t serve the poor, however, by taking their money to terminate their children.
