My mother, Mrs. Naomi King, wife of my dad the Rev. A.D. King, and sister-in-law of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was recently vandalized at her senior citizens’ residence in Atlanta, Ga. Along with my mother’s vehicle, cars of other residents were vandalized, with windows bashed in, and possessions rifled in the car.

Last year, on Oct. 9, 2015, my mother experienced a similar yet more violent attack when a teenager approached her car, demanded her car keys, and punched her in the face repeatedly when she refused to get out of the car or give up the vehicle.

Mother’s is a voice for civil rights and justice. She loves Jesus Christ. Together we are 21st century advocates for the sanctity of human life from conception until natural death.

We agree that a lack of disregard for the sanctity of human life is at the core of America’s violent crime crisis.

Saint Mother Teresa once said it perfectly, “What is taking place in America is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?”

In 1951 my mother was facing an unexpected pregnancy with me in her womb. She was offered a choice by the then Birth Control League that would become Planned Parenthood.

The offer was for a “procedure for a mysterious female ailment,” a D and C which would have eliminated everything in Naomi’s womb, including me.

Mother went to my granddaddy, her pastor, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. with the news. Granddaddy prophetically described the baby he’d seen in a dream three years prior.

Naomi didn’t abort her baby. As a result, I’m a voice for life today.

Paraphrasing words from her brother-in-law, my Uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., my mother says, “When we do not value the human personality then our society is in trouble."In her recent open letter, mother urgently asks her attackers and society at large, “Our God, who is loving and merciful gave you life and gifts. Are you thankful?”

Because of her love of God, her grace and her beauty, mother is often affectionately called “The Butterfly Queen.” She also often says: “I’m so glad I chose life for my angel daughter, Alveda.”

I love my mother, and I’m grateful that she said yes to life. Now in the midst of this 2016 presidential election, I’m praying for a ceasefire in America’s abortions — and crime and violence. Also, I’m urging everyone to pray for America and to vote pro-life.
