Fifty years ago, it was racial segregation and the fight for equal justice before the law. Where is the line in the sand for liberty now? Dr. Alveda King discusses what she believes is the pressing issue in America today, on Home School Heartbeat with host Mike Farris.
Dr. King, last time, you shared what you considered the most important critical issue for, not only African Americans, but really all Americans: defending the lives of unborn children. How can our listeners make a difference in this struggle and continue the legacy of freedom and justice for all that your uncle Martin Luther King, Jr. and your father, A.D. King, dedicated their lives to?
Dr. Alveda King:
I would like for your listeners to consider the importance of life and to find out how life is being threatened, not only in America but across the globe. And also because I am an African-American woman, I can truly say, having experienced abortion myself and been healed and forgiven by God for those abortions, that we must know what a threat abortion is to every member of society.
African-Americans are disproportionately targeted by abortion, so are Latinos and Hispanics; so are college students of every ethnic group. I encourage your listeners to visit maafa21, and also, the Blood Money Film, and then visit my own website: priestforlife.org/Africanamerican, and learn how you can be involved in the fight for life.
Dr. King, we are so blessed by having you on the program and sharing the King family history with us. I’m Mike Farris.
