Pro-Life Mississippi, an organization dedicated to the sanctity of human life, announced today that Dr. Alveda King will serve as keynote speaker for their annual banquet to be held on Thursday, April 23, 2015, at First Baptist Church of Jackson.
“I am looking forward to spending time with the committed and passionate people of Pro-Life Mississippi,” said Dr. King. “My heart broke last year when it was revealed that 72 percent of abortions in the state take the lives of African-American babies so I am particularly grateful for the efforts of these tireless warriors for life. I am hoping to return to celebrate with them when the state’s only abortion clinic is finally closed for good,” she concluded.
Dr. Alveda King advocates nationwide for the pre-born as a continuation of the civil rights struggle.
She serves as a Pastoral Associate and Director of African-American Outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. She is also a voice for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, sharing her testimony of two abortions, God’s forgiveness, and healing.
The niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the daughter of the late civil rights activist Rev. A.D. King and his wife Naomi Barber King, Dr. King served in the Georgia State House of Representatives and has won multiple awards for her efforts in the pro-life movement. She is also a regular columnist for Newsmax.com and a contributor to Fox News.
