"I Don't Mind A Parasite. I Object To A Cut-Rate One."
The “she” is Dr. Alveda King, the niece of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who said in his 1963 “I Have A Dream” speech:
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream…..”
But in this case, Dr. Alveda King’s dream is focused not on the skin color of little black children, but the fact that huge numbers of them are not permitted to live in this nation at all. In a speech to the assembly at Jesse Auditorium at the University of Missouri this past Monday, Dr. King addressed the “genocide” few people talk about – one where “black people are murdering themselves.”
Her speech, reported by thecollegefix.com
, focused on the following:
*”Urging everyone to take action to protect life, King frequently reiterated some of (the) stark figures: more than 16,000,000 African-American children have been aborted since Roe v. Wade. Making matters worse, she pointed out, these abortions have occurred within a minority group that makes up just 13 percent of the American population.”
*”Her speech comes as headlines regarding the abortion rate among blacks have shocked the country: “In Georgia, 53.6 Percent of Babies Aborted Are Black,” “In Mississippi, 72 Percent of the Babies Aborted Are Black,” and “More Black Babies Die in Abortions in New York City Than Given Birth.””
*“There is only one race on the planet,” Dr. King stated, “the human race.” She went on to cite 1 Corinthians 13: “And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
*”No personal stranger to the ills of abortion, she also spoke about her own experiences: Her mother was encouraged to abort her while pregnant, and King herself underwent two abortions before the words of her grandfather touched her.
“The woman has a right to choose what happens to her body,” Dr. King recalls her grandfather saying, “but that baby is not her body.””
*“A respected civil rights activist in her own right, Dr. King has received the Life Prize Award and the Civil Rights Award from the Congress of Racial Equality, and currently serves as a Pastoral Associate with Priests for Life.”
