Dr. Alveda King: Northam Should Stay, Rescind Abortion Laws

By    |   Monday, 04 February 2019 08:29 AM EST

While calls are growing for Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam to resign over a racist 1984 photograph from his medical school yearbook, Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., said Monday she'd rather he stay and work to stop legislation he's approved supporting abortion.

"I would say stay there, reverse all those actions, stop agreeing to kill little human beings in the womb," King told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "You are a pediatrician. You know those are human beings right there in the womb. So I believe he could do a really good deed if he is very serious, especially about that apology."

She also called on him to "stop doing Ku Klux Klanish things and reverse and rescind all of those ugly laws he is still supporting today."

Northam early last week came under fire for his words supporting a state late-term abortion bill. Later in the week, a photograph in a yearbook entry with his name showed two people, with one wearing a KKK robe and the other with blackface. Northam initially apologized, and then denied either of the men in the photograph was him.

King said Democrats are unwilling to talk about abortion, instead focusing on "skin color racism, not realizing it's the human blood that makes us human beings."

"He needs to apologize for agreeing to kill little babies, little human beings in the womb, in his own state," said King of Northam. "Those little human Americans, he needs to apologize to them."
