How Can the Dream Continue?

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Years before Martin Luther King, Jr. proclaimed a dream of equal rights for all, his father had a dream, too-of a woman who would not abort her baby. That baby, Alveda King, is now 59. “When you hear me say ‘I have a dream,’ it’s in my genes,” she told me. “Granddaddy saved me from abortion.”

You can hear more of Alveda’s compelling story starting today, when the newest episode of Facing Life Head-On airs on televisions throughout the nation. We’ve also posted it online.

Though Alveda has faced numerous tragedies, she’s bravely following in the footsteps of her uncle, spreading a message of truth and hope. The truth is startling, almost unbelievable . . . .

Since abortion was legalized in the US, abortion has killed more African-Americans than AIDS, violent crimes, accidents, cancer, heart disease combined.

Could the strategic placement of abortion mills have something to do with it? Over 76-percent of Planned Parenthood abortion mills are in minority neighborhoods. And that’s not by mistake. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, relentlessly promoted eugenics and the genocide of people with darker skin. “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated,” she wrote. She called them “feeble-minded” and “useless eaters.”

We’re airing this very special program during Black History Month because most people don’t know the Black community is being decimated by abortion. And Planned Parenthood is the power behind these killings. I believe that armed with the truth, people across the nation will expose Planned Parenthood as the racist organization it really is-even put them out of business.

That’s the hope in Alveda’s message-that history doesn’t have to dictate the future.

There’s work to do, though. It took years for America to overcome slavery and civil rights, and sadly, the battle for Black Americans continues. Millions of unborn babies have already paid with their lives. Change must come-and quickly-for as Alveda asked me, “How can the dream survive if we murder the children?”
