Dr. King, a frequent guest on IFA’s Pray with America’s Leaders, uses her testimony to stand for the unborn. We need more voices like hers!

From The Federalist. At 72 years old, Alveda King has devoted more than half of her life to protecting babies in the womb. …

Get involved in state level prayer with IFA.


King, born in 1951, has been a professor, a politician, an author, a speaker, and an activist for the unborn. …

“I was born into a Christian family,” King told The Federalist. “And all these years later, after I’ve had two abortions, a miscarriage, I’ve been a Democrat, an independent, and a Republican — today I’m a Frederick Douglass Republican — I believe everything that happened in my life was leading me to a time when my voice would be part of a message that human life is sacred, from the womb to the tomb into eternity.”

Divine Intervention

King is no stranger to fighting for the voiceless. After all, she grew up as the daughter of the late civil rights activist Rev. A.D. King and the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Activism may be in King’s blood, but it wasn’t until the 1980s that she took up the mantle to fight for the protection of unborn babies.

“I began to self-examine. Even though I had been brought up in a Christian family, I had not made a commitment to Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. I was very aware of it in ’83, ’84. Somewhere in that time period, I confessed Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. During that same time, I confessed my own sins and I realized that abortion was mixed up in that.” …

“I began to ask this question: ‘A woman has a right to choose what she does with her body. The baby is not her body. Where’s the lawyer for the baby? How can the dream survive if we murder our children?’” King said. …

‘But It’s a Baby’

After working with Priests for Life for 16 years and launching the Civil Rights for the Unborn ministry, King decided to take her activism further with the foundation of Speak for Life, a pro-life organization dedicated to “mobilizing generations of Pro-Life advocates to boldly speak for life!” …

That’s why she’s working on a curriculum designed to “help children talk about life and to know when their liberties are being suppressed by worldviews that differ from theirs.”

“It’s not so hard to talk to children about life,” King said, noting that many of the students she’s talked to about abortion are bewildered that anyone would end a life in the womb.

“Even little children, when I would go to speak to the elementary schools and middle schools, high schools, and colleges, the little tiny children were like ‘But it’s a baby. It’s a baby,’” King recalled.

Adults, on the other hand, are easily misled by abortion activists, Democrats, and the corporate media, which are all willing to lie about the harsh realities of abortion. King says that “lying to folks” must always be combated with the truth that abortion hurts everyone. …

I so wish that Dr Martin Luther King had lived. This nation would be a much better place. When I think of him and follow Dr Alveda King a phrase always comes to mind …”a voice calling in the desert” …. That we would all just listen

Go, go, go p, Dr Alveda! You are a great Blessing and encourager to many by being willing to stand in transparency. God uses you and your past life experiences to come alongside hurting women and men and to share the comfort with which you were comforted!
I was able to participate in “The Call” for women back in, (I believe, 2017), in Washington DC. and you spoke. Keep Standing! AAnd sharing Gods Love! May God pour out His abundant love on you and yours!

2 Corinthians 4:6 /NIV
6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”[a] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. Jesus tells us to persist in pursuing God, People often give up thinking they are not worthy because they have not forgiven them selves. John- 10:7-9 says God is the only way to eternal life and even though it is narrow does not mean we cannot become a believer and be forgiven; God forgives then forgets. Our Faith and obedience in God is what really matters in our lives not just goodness. Jesus is more about our new life walk than our talk. Having a personal relationship with our Father is the guiding light to our lives He is our rock and practicing obedience becomes our solid foundation so that we show others not for show, but the lasting, difference is the structure that will give forth what we do in life, to make a difference in other peoples lives, it brings forth fruit of Faith that does not crumble. Alveda King has stood the test of time as she keeps speaking ( Truth for Life) her organization is not crumbling she built her foundation on solid ground- Jesus! Luke 6-46-49 🧎‍♀️✝️

Thank you Lord for Alveda King and her work to teach the children what abortion really is, and to get the truth out to others regarding the travesty and devastation that abortion is. Bless her Lord in her effort and keep her safe in her coming and going.

Thank You Father God for Alveda King’s abortion testimony. Use her to sound the alarm via all legacy media outlets that abortion hurts everyone and it is a lie to believe it doesn’t, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
