Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, has called on Senator and presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand of New York to rescind her previous statement comparing racism to abortion.
“I was shocked and saddened at the recent comments of presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., comparing pro-life advocates to racists,” King said in a statement according to Truth PR. “…Little babies in the womb, regardless of race, gender, or physical or mental disability are people. To defend their right to life is not racism—it is true compassion!”
King continued by celebrating Georgia’s most recent and restrictive abortion law, which bans abortions by the time a heartbeat is detected. She supported the bill as part of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition, an organization hoping to end abortion.
“According to Gillibrand’s reasoning, me, the black men and women in that and other Black Pro-Life groups are racists. How ridiculous and shameful!” she said. “After surviving 400 years of slavery and racism in America, we deserve more than abortion.”
“Gillibrand should be ashamed of herself for making such insensitive remarks,” King concluded her statement. “She owes an apology to babies, black and all pro-lifers—and to God!”
