The leftwing celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. as an iconic legend. That’s why they have been so dismayed by his niece Alveda King, an outspoken conservative who says that ending abortion is the “new civil rights movement.”
Alveda King said babies are being ‘womb-lynched’ by pregnancy terminations, warning ‘today’s unborn are yesterday’s blacks – best kept out of sight and out of mind lest they remind us of the injustices we commit’.
King admitted her personal experience of abortion deeply scarred her and led her to campaign on the issue.
‘I see absolutely no difference between the denial of rights to people because of their skin colour and the denial of rights to people because of their age or condition of dependency,’ she said.
‘There is no doubt that the pro-life movement is the civil rights movement of our century because it is the fundamental right of every one of every race to live. Of what use are all our other rights if we can simply choose to deny a person the right to be born in the first place?’
As someone whose relative literally gave his life to the Civil Rights movement, King knows better than anyone how to define one when she sees it. Members of the left are of course appalled by this statement, as they only look at civil rights cases from the standpoint of their own political ideology.
Leftists see abortion as a civil rights issue from the viewpoint of mothers who want to “choose” to have an abortion, but King instead sees it from the standpoint of the defenseless babies who simply want to be born.
When looking at it from the side of the children, it’s clear that abortion really is a civil rights issue in its own right, and people like King are fighting for the rights of those who can’t fight for themselves.
If King was a progressive, leftists would celebrate her and she would likely have an extremely successful career appearing on mainstream media programs to give her commentary.
However, since she does no submit to the left’s race-baiting agenda, she is ignored by the very racially-obsessed left-wingers who claim to revere her late uncle.
Once again, these left-wingers are showing that they have no interest in being open-minded to a viewpoint other than their own. King would challenge the way they look at the world if they were to ever listen to her, and leftwing snowflakes can’t risk being triggered by her commentary!
