Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr, marched in the Civil Rights movement right alongside her famous uncle. She is now a pro-life advocate, claiming abortion is the biggest civil rights issue of our time. King said her journey back to God started after she had two abortions. “I didn’t know then that I was born into the pro-life movement,” she said. “God called me away from my liberal living. I had two abortions, a miscarriage, divorce, I was just living in the world. In 1983, God said that he wanted me to give my testimony.”

After the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade, Alevda King was amazed at the abortion rights activists’ unhinged reaction, believing it was hypocritical. “Another tragedy is that those who so often claim to act in defense of ‘civil rights’ for minority communities remain conspicuously silent about the disparate effect abortion has on Blacks,” she wrote in an article for NewsMax. “For example, approximately 663 Black babies are aborted daily; this totals over 240,000 Black babies each year.”

“Any genuine discussion about civil rights in America today must center around abortion,” King added. “Nothing has wreaked havoc on the Black community and destroyed Black lives more than the abortion industry. Of course racism, transgender surgery for children, human trafficking, poverty — and other ills — and the racist Critical Race Theory (CRT) agenda are often cited; and must be addressed.”

The pro-life activist also had something to say about hate crimes. “Abortion is a hate crime,” King declared. “As individual ethnic groups and social justice communities fight for ‘hate crime’ legislation, we must stop the violence and killing of our weakest; those unborn.”

King referred to her uncle in making a point about the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. “One must now ponder more deeply this question: How can the American Dream, and the dream of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr survive if we literally murder our children?” she asked. “Roe is no more! The Supreme Court justices’ reversal of Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973) with the critical Dobbs decision is a victory for civil rights for the unborn.”

MLK’s niece also reminded Americans what this SCOTUS decision really means. “Sending the discussion of life versus abortion back to the states will help ‘We the People’ on the state level grow to ensure that every unborn baby has the civil right to life,” King stated. “Human dignity begins in the womb. Today the new civil rights struggle of our time is for what may be described as ‘womb equality,’ as well as the right to life for unborn children — who are aborted each year.”

King summed up the outcome of Roe v. Wade. “Again, let’s examine the truth. Since that fateful decision, more than 63 million babies have been aborted in the United States,” she said. “This crime against humanity remains a stain on our moral conscience and a tragedy that we allowed to happen in our nation, on our watch.”

On the other end of the spectrum, Hollywood celebrities were having meltdowns over the SCOTUS decision to end Roe v. Wade. Barbra Streisand attacked Justice Clarence Thomas by posting on Twitter, “Clarence Thomas should be ashamed of himself. We’ve got to expand the court and have Biden pick more rational judges who don’t lie.” Actor Mark Ruffalo also weighed in, saying, “Time to fight like hell in any way you know how. The American Taliban has taken over the Supreme Court.”

Monica Lewinsky trashed SCOTUS Justices by posting on Twitter, “f*ck you roberts. f*ck you thomas. f*ck you alito. f*ck you kavanaugh. f*ck you gorsuch. f*ck you coney barrett.” Actor James Woods responded to Lewinsky, “You’re going to need a bigger dress.” Songstress Taylor Swift claimed women have been “stripped” of their rights, while musician Sheryl Crow said, “I do not recognize my country.” Entertainer Cher claimed, “I can’t contain my anger,” while saying, “Trump’s radical Supreme Court became responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of American women.”

The abortion issue has been an ongoing topic of controversy ever since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. However, maybe James Woods was the voice of reason after the landmark decision was overturned. “The Court’s decision was about neither a woman’s ‘right to choose’ nor the sanctity of pre-natal life,” he wrote. “Decisions about abortion will now rightfully be left to the States to legislate. Or not.” Even the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg agreed. “Nine unelected judges decide this question for the nation,” RBG said in an interview in 2014. “It should be decided by the people’s elected representatives, by the members of the state legislatures.”
