How Can the Dream Survive With Unborn Unprotected?

Today is the 48th anniversary of the assassination of my Uncle the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'

As a compassionate pastor and civil rights leader, he was in Memphis to support a sanitation workers’ strike when he was shot in the neck by a sniper as he stood on the second floor balcony of the Lorraine Motel.

He was 39 years old.

My father, Rev. A.D. King was there in support of his brother. Daddy, and Uncle Martin Luther King, Jr. were "brothers in the struggle."


As an Evangelist, my mission is advancing the Gospel.

My pro-life vocation demands an often overlooked aspect of the civil rights movement; the sanctity of the unborn and the wombs of their mothers.

As director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, I and my associates advocate for the lives of the most innocent victims, children in the womb.

“Today I feel very close to my uncle’s dream and vision for the 21st century."

I am praying that we include the unborn and the health of their mothers in the dream.

A woman has a right to choose what she will do with her body. The baby is not her body.

Where is the lawyer for the baby? How can the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr. survive if we murder our unborn children and decimate the wombs of their mothers?

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said that just as Martin Luther King gave his life for the civil rights movement, pro-lifers have to be willing to do the same for the one million babies lost every year to abortion in the U.S.

He said: "As I wrote in my book "Abolishing Abortion," we have to be ready to lay down our lives to end the violent segregation and prejudice of abortion."

My Uncle and Daddy stopped at nothing to build the Beloved Community, and so must we.

Let’s do what needs to be done.

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.
