.-

The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. will take a stand Monday with other African American pro-life leaders in Washington to demand that abortion be barred from any health care legislation.

"Our message is clear – abortion is neither health care nor a benefit. It's genocide," said Dr. Alveda King in a press release.

Dr. King is scheduled to join other African American pro-life leaders on Monday at 10 a.m. in front of the Cannon House Office Building to calling for abortion and Planned Parenthood to be excluded from the health care overhaul.

"Give us procreative reproductive rights. Repair our communities with life affirming programs. My fellow civil rights workers and I will be on Capitol Hill to say that if President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, or anyone else truly wants to reduce the number of abortions, they will not coerce Americans to pay for them and they will not subsidize Planned Parenthood, the billion-dollar business that has killed more black children than the KKK," King charged.
