Dr. Alveda King: Let Freedom Ring For Life

Alveda C. King

The following is submitted by evangelist Alveda C. King, she is available for comment:

Every year, from January 15 - 22, many Americans and people around the world remember the legacy of my uncle The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.; and many also pause to consider the observance of the issue of the sanctity of life during the first month of the year.

As we remember the birthday of my uncle, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. this year, it is important that we remember to honor God, remember the American Dream; and value human life from the womb to the tomb.

"I still have a dream, a dream deeply rooted in the American dream -- one day this nation will rise up and live up to its creed, 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal." MLK

What is the American Dream? To whom does the Dream belong? Are we not all dreamers; is the Dream still alive? I can't help believing that if we can finally see ourselves as the one blood human race, many of our problems including abortion, racism, which lives matter, critical race theory, systemic racism, and all human injustices will be resolved.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men [and women and children] are created equal [in the image and likeness of God], that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." -- Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

Here in the 21st century, we the governed need to speak up to the government we entrusted with its power. We need to let them know that babies in the womb are among those "men" who were created equal, and that to kill them in the womb is to deny them their inalienable right to life.
