MLK niece to lead San Francisco pro-life march

.- Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will lead an estimated 20,000 people in the Fourth Annual Walk for Life West Coast on January 19, 2008.

“If the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is to live, our babies must live. Our mothers must choose life,” said Alveda King, who lost two children to abortion and is the mother of six living children.  “The greatest injustice we face is the denial of the right to life. Without life, no other rights exist,” she said.

Other speakers include Dr. Clenard Childress, Jr., founder of the Black Genocide organization, and Gianna Jessen, a woman who as an infant survived a saline abortion.

“The Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco continues to be a galvanizing event for people of conscience who seek social justice for all of our citizens, born and unborn,” said Childress, a Baptist Minister who has spoken at the Walk each year since it began in 2005.

Gianna Jessen, who suffers from cerebral palsy because of the attempted abortion, summarized the goal of the event:  “We need to get back to valuing human beings based on their intrinsic value rather than on whether or not they fit into our plans or whether or not they serve our purpose.”

“Women are being hurt every day by the abortions that take their babies’ lives,” said Walk for Life organizer Dolores Meehan. “We are here to reach out with compassion and support.”

A pregnancy resources and abortion recovery information fair will be held at the Walk for Life’s conclusion.
