Alveda King, the niece of civil rights hero Martin Luther King Jr., has called for the end of abortion.
She calls it is a targeted attack on the African-American community.
“For many, many decades, Black women and babies have been disproportionately targeted by the abortion industry,” Dr. King said in a recent essay. “Babies of Black mothers are three times more likely to be aborted than White babies, resulting in 20 million Black children having been legally killed in America since 1973.”
King said abortion is the “most significant civil rights issue of our time.”
