Martin Luther King Jr.’s Niece, Alveda King, slammed abortion mill operator Planned Parenthood for linking itself to her famous uncle’s civil rights cause and called the baby killing outfit “inhuman.”
On the day Americans have set aside to remember the great civil rights activist, Planned Parenthood jumped to its Twitter account to try to steal away King’s legacy for their own.
PP claimed that King’s work in civil rights is “intertwined” with abortion.
“We honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life & legacy as the fight for racial justice, economic equity, & reproductive freedom are undeniably intertwined. This fight is one we cannot do alone, & we are proud to stand w/ our partners who are on the frontlines of this fight. #MLKDay, Planned Parenthood Action Tweeted.

King’s niece slammed Planned Parenthood Action for the tweet:
“To dishonor a prophet by raising a political banner which supports killing innocent babies on MLK’s birthday is so inhuman. To dishonor a prophet by raising a political banner on his birthday is so inhumane,” King told CNSNews.
“King sought after the spirit not the flesh. He was after the divine,” she added.
“20th century skin color race card inflammation will not solve crimes against humanity; including abortion, human trafficking, modern slavery, oppression. MLK did not serve politics. He didn’t serve government. He served God. We are not color blind; we are one human race; one blood, created in living color,” Alveda King concluded.
Alveda King also wrote that she one accepted abortion, but has since changed her mind:
As Dr. King’s niece, I too once accepted the lies of Planned Parenthood until the truth of the violence of abortion was revealed to me. If Planned Parenthood had announced that over 50 million babies would be aborted in the onslaught of their agenda, I would never have aborted a child. Dr. King would never have agreed with the violent violation of the civil rights of the millions of aborted babies, and Planned Parenthood’s subsequent blitz of women’s health problems related to chemical and artificial birth control methods. This conclusion leads me to remind my readers that I too have a dream, it’s in my genes. How can the dream survive if we murder the children?
Of course, abortion was not a very big issue in King’s day and he did not say much about it, so it is hard to say exactly what he would think of the issue.
But, this makes Planned Parenthood’s attempt to glom onto King’s legacy even more absurd.
