In response to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand comparing the pro-life position to racism, two prominent black women take issue with her claim.

According to Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Director of the African-American outreach for Priests for Life, Gillibrand wants to protect the rights of only some women. She points out that the little girls in the womb will grow up to be women after they’re born.

Dr. King points out that Americans need to embrace the sanctity of life regardless of political affiliation and embrace the civil rights of the unborn. She called abortion one of the most heinous forms of racism that exists and said a woman’s reproduction rights should never include the death of an innocent human being.

Another black woman, Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, points the Democrats to the racial past of Planned Parenthood and the death of almost 20- million potential African-American humans at the hands of abortionists. Parker feels the 2020 election is going to come down to moral truth.

Should our culture be free, or should our culture be beholden to big government and abortion fanatics?
