Arkansas Leads the Fight Against Webcam Abortions

Kudos to state Re. Julie Mayberry, House sponsor of the Ban on Webcam Abortion Bill (HB 1076/SB 53). The bill is expected to be signed by Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson as early as next week.

State Rep. Mary Bently, also a supporter of the bill, texted us as we were on the way to the airport, saying: "It's a new day in Arkansas. We thank Ms. King for coming. It was a blessing to have her smiling down on us."

Alveda King waves to Julie Mayberry, supporter of the webcam abortion ban.
TV and radio personality Princella Smith, Black Americans for Life, an outreach of Arkansas Right to Life, was there on the ground, and added: "This has been a most incredible day. Multiple instances of history have been created and witnessed. To have a descendant of the most key civil rights activist, Rev. Martin Luther Jr., present as our legislature passes a bill affecting our nation's most pressing civil right was truly an honor to witness. Dr. Alveda King has truly inspired us all with her pro-life work and presence here today."

Rose Mimms, executive director of Arkansas Right to Life is "happy that Dr. Alveda King was present to witness this great victory over Planned Parenthood to ban webcam abortion in Arkansas."

ARTL and ABAL invited me to Arkansas to inform, educate, and activate the community on the harmful impact of the devastating abortion epidemic.

I am truly humbled that America is witnessing genuine compassion for mothers and their babies with the passage of every pro-life bill. This most recent victory is so encouraging. Women, men, children, and babies need love, not abortion. Death doesn't bring victory, only life can lead us there.

The Capitol was my last stop after meeting with pastors and community leaders while in town.

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.
