Fighting for the Dream
Alveda King is the niece of the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and has experienced numerous family tragedies throughout her life. But instead of giving into hate, she directs her energies toward promoting a message of truth in the pro-life movement and highlighting the eugenic history of Planned Parenthood within the African-American community.
Alveda speaks on details concerning Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, and the eugenic legacy she left behind. Sanger believed that African-Americans were feeble-minded and an inferior race. By implementing eugenic practices, she hoped to diminish the African American community. Following Sanger’s lead, Planned Parenthood has continued to target African-Americans. According to statistics from the US Centers for Disease Control, legal abortion has killed more African-Americans than AIDS, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and violent crimes combined.
Elaine Riddick was 13 years old when she was raped by a neighbor. Nine months later, she discovered she was pregnant and soon after gave birth to her son, Tony. While Elaine was in the hospital, tragedy struck. Elaine’s grandmother was threatened by a social worker with the Eugenics Board of North Carolina to allow for the sterilization of Elaine. It wasn’t until several years later that Elaine learned she had been sterilized without her knowledge or consent. Elaine has spent most of her life trying to come to terms with her victimization. She has worked hard to overcome the tragedy, has obtained a college degree, and is now living a proud, happy life. She shares her story with the hope that more African-American women will become aware of the ways in which the abortion industry is targeting their community.
The pro-abortion movement has tried to tie Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement to their issue. But people like Alveda King and Elaine Riddick are shedding light on the truth and educating people on the horrors of modern-day eugenics.
