ATLANTA, Aug. 18, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Alveda King:
The latest book by Fr. Frank Pavone, Abolishing Abortion: How You Can Play a Part in Ending the Greatest Evil of Our Day, is a much needed book in these turbulent days as we see the value of human life being attacked on many different fronts.
In ABOLISHING ABORTION, Rev. Frank Pavone delivers twenty "arrows" to pierce the chinks in the deadly armor of the abortion machine. It's a how to approach packed with anecdotes and historical perspectives.
I have been working with Fr. Frank for ten years as Director of African American Outreach with Priests for Life. During this time we have fought many battles to save the unborn from death and for their right to life. We have also labored to help the mothers and families of the babies. For abortion makes victims not only of the babies, but society as a whole.
I first met Rev. Pavone at a Right to Life meeting over twenty years ago. I had been Prolife since 1983, and as a post abortive African American woman, I welcomed the opportunity to join him in the greatest Civil Rights battle of our times.
Just as my uncle, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., fanned the flames of the civil rights movement, so today Rev. Frank Pavone is doing the same for the movement to end abortion. Fr. Frank's book 'Abolishing Abortion' is another step in that great task.
Life today seems to have less value, at least in the eyes of many. Whether it's Black lives, unborn lives, lives of the disabled, lives of the elderly, ALL life has been devalued. Yet what would you expect from societies that allow a mother to kill her own child and call it a personal 'choice?'
Today death has spread from the abortion facilities to the deserts of Iraq, to the streets of our cities, to the classrooms of our schools, and to the prayer meetings of our churches.
The killing will not end until we begin to defend the most innocent of all, the unborn babies in the womb. When we say that their lives matter, then we can truly say, "All Lives Matter." And yes, we can even put a hashtag in front of it if we like.
Abolishing Abortion is a call to action for everyone who values human life; which can change hearts and minds and ultimately the world.
