Is the fight for life and liberty for all truly won in America? Dr. Alveda King, pastoral associate for Priests for Life and founder of King for America, joins host Mike Farris today on Home School Heartbeat to discuss where today’s battle lines lie for defending the oppressed.

Mike Farris:
Dr. King, your family was at the forefront of the Civil rights movement in the 1960s. What would you say is the most critical issue confronting African Americans today?

Dr. Alveda King:
The most critical issue confronting African Americans today, considering the civil rights history of which I am a part, at 60 years of life, certainly, is life. Conception until natural death, and everything that goes between. Some people say that health care is the most important issue. Some people would say that the economy is the most important issue. Education is definitely very important.

However, if we do not protect human life from conception until natural death, then none of those issues will be even considered. And so I believe that life in every stage, no matter if it’s a little baby in the womb, a little baby that needs the love of his or her mother and father, a child in school, an infirm person who is sick, an elderly person, all of these people make up the human fiber and fabric of what we call life. And so life is perhaps the most important civil rights issue of our time.

Dr. King, I couldn’t agree with you more. Protecting the sanctity of human life is at the top of the list. I’m Mike Farris.
