The latest book by Fr. Frank Pavone, "Abolishing Abortion: How You Can Play a Part in Ending the Greatest Evil of Our Day," is a much-needed book in these turbulent days as we see the value of human life being attacked on many different fronts.

In "Abolishing Abortion" the Rev. Frank Pavone delivers 20 "arrows" to pierce the chinks in the deadly armor of the abortion machine. It's a how-to approach packed with anecdotes and historical perspectives.

I have been working with Fr. Frank for 10 years as director of African American Outreach with Priests for Life. During this time we have fought many battles to save the unborn from death and for their right to life.

We have also labored to help the mothers and families of the babies for abortion makes victims not only of the babies, but society as a whole.

I first met the Rev. Pavone at a Right to Life meeting over 20 years ago. I had been Pro-life since 1983, and as a post-abortive African American woman, I welcomed the opportunity to join him in the greatest civil rights battle of our times.

Just as my uncle, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., and my father, the Rev. A.D. King, fanned the flames of the civil rights movement, so today the Rev. Frank Pavone is doing the same for the movement to end abortion. Fr. Frank's book, "Abolishing Abortion," is another step in that great task.

Life today seems to have less value, at least in the eyes of many. Whether it's black lives, unborn lives, lives of the disabled, lives of the elderly — all life has been devalued. Yet what would you expect from societies that allow a mother to kill her own child and call it a personal choice?

Today death has spread from the abortion facilities to the deserts of Iraq, to the streets of our cities, to the classrooms of our schools, and to the prayer meetings of our churches.

The killing will not end until we begin to defend the most innocent of all, the unborn babies in the womb. When we say that their lives matter, then we can truly say, "All Lives Matter." We can put a hashtag in front of it too.

"Abolishing Abortion" is a call to action for everyone who values human life. This can change hearts and minds and ultimately the world.

Dr. Alveda C. King grew up in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She is a pastoral associate and director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. Her family home in Birmingham, Ala., was bombed, as was her father’s church office in Louisville, Ky. Alveda herself was jailed during the open housing movement. Read more reports from Dr. Alveda C.
