Senate Abortion Bill Hearing Beset With Racist Statements

Dr. Alveda C. King By Thursday, 17 June 2021 03:27 PM EDT Current | Bio | Archive

"The Spirit God has given us is no cowardly spirit." (2 Tim. 1:7)

Three "women of color" were invited to give testimony in favor the Women’s Health Protection Act to the Constitution Subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee. (In some cases, "women of color" is a code phrase for Black women who are paid to advance a pro-abortion agenda.)

The WHPA is an abortion friendly agenda which would:

•Negate mandatory waiting periods before abortion.

•Eliminate requirements for ultrasound prior to abortion.

•Prohibit abortionists or staff from providing information about the developing baby, potential risks of abortion or the possibility of halting a chemical abortion.

•Eliminate bans on telemedicine.

•Repeal laws calling for abortion businesses to meet standards of other ambulatory surgery centers; requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals;

•Eliminate bans on certain abortion procedures, including dismemberment abortion.

•Eliminate bans on abortion after fetal viability based on ability to feel pain.

•Prohibit abortionists or staff from asking the reason for the abortion – for instance, sex-selective abortion or abortion for Down Syndrome.

•Eliminate a ban on abortion after a heartbeat is detected.

•Eliminate conscience protection rights for healthcare providers.

•Eliminate the Sanctuary City designation in more than two dozen U.S. cities that have declared themselves abortion-free zones.

This is a very racist platform.

It’s racist to suggest Black women can’t handle the responsibilities of motherhood.

It’s racist to insist Black women should be having more abortions.

It’s racist to continue to perpetuate the lie that every Black woman is destitute and in need of government assistance to kill the child in her womb.

As a Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and a spokeswoman for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, I see this hearing on H.R. 3755, the Women’s Health Protection Act, before a Senate subcommittee as the latest example of how Black babies are being sacrificed for the cause of so called racial justice.

There is only one blood, one human race.

All babies in the womb need protection; not abortion. So do their parents.

And the deceptive claim of poverty is cloudy. In terms of poverty, the situation for Black people is improving. According to statistics, citing figures that showed 18.8% of the nation’s Blacks live in poverty, down from 20.8 percent in 2018.

That’s the lowest poverty rate for Blacks ever measured, and it means that 80.2% of American Blacks do not live in poverty. Abortion advocates like those we saw testifying to the Senate continue to insist that abortion is the way to end Black poverty. That is a lie. And it’s racist.

Contrary to what these speakers asserted, the Black community does not need more abortion, later abortion or taxpayer-funded abortion. I had two devastating abortions and a miscarriage from a botched as a young woman. I’m sorry; today I know better.

Those dead babies deserved to live. What we need now is the recognition that abortion has legally ended the lives of 20 million Black Americans and that when a woman in this country dies from a "safe and legal" abortion, she is most likely a woman of color.

To insist that the way to improve Black lives is to kill even more of our children is the biggest racist lie I have ever heard. If Black lives matter, then all Black lives must matter.

Among those speaking in favor of the act yesterday was a representative from "We Testify," an organization bringing together women who have had abortions and remain abortion advocates.

Janet Morana, executive director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, says that if the panel was interested in both sides of the story, women of color from the campaign would have been invited to give testimony.

"Since 2003 women who have had abortions and suffered physical and emotional repercussions – sometimes for decades – have been carrying signs that say 'I Regret My Abortion' and speaking publicly about that regret," Mrs. Morana says.

"The Senate needs to hear their stories, too."

Read the testimonies of Black women who regret their abortion experiences. My own testimony is here.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, describes the Women’s Health Protection Act as "All Abortion, All the Time."

"This bill was introduced by abortion advocates in the House and Senate who have never seen or heard of an abortion they don’t like," Father Pavone says. He adds, "Passage of the bill would be a catastrophe for our nation, especially for the unborn, their mothers and healthcare workers who do not want to participate in the slaughter of innocent boys and girls."

The time is now. I will speak for life.

Dr. Alveda C. King grew up in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She is 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 Dr. Alveda C.
