Hi everyone,

You've seen me post excerpts from letters I've received from Fr. Frank Pavone. What many may not be aware of is that Dr. Alveda C. King, niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, is a Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life. On the priests for life website, Dr. Alveda C. King has an open letter she wrote to African-American leaders. Following, I post an excerpt from it, with the link to the complete letter on the website. I think that Dr. Alveda King's voice is an important one in the African-American community and needs to be heard far above some like Jesse Jackson who supports abortion. We all need to realise the terrible reality of the holocaust of abortion.

The letter Dr. Alveda King writes begins with the following quote from Dr. Martic Luther King himself.

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere…The Negro cannot win if he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for personal comfort and safety."
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This is an open letter to appeal to all people who respect the work, life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. More specifically, it is a wake-up call to the African American community. As a mature, Black, female living in America, my heart weeps every time I hear or see stories about our youth cut down in acts of senseless violence. Time after time, I have asked the question, HOW CAN THE DREAM SURVIVE IF WE MURDER THE CHILDREN?

Dr. Alveda C. King, Pastoral Associate

Obama's pro-death appointments

I received a recent email from Fr. Frank Pavone, Priests for Life, and am posting part of it here.

Dear Friend,

The decision to have Kathleen Sebelius - a militant pro-abortion extremist - be Secretary of Health and Human Services can mean only one thing:

Barack Obama has declared WAR on the youngest members of our human family!

This email is my rallying cry to you as a loyal member of our Priests for Life family! We must defend the lives of our innocent unborn brothers and sisters!

Even as you read this, Priests for Life is working round the clock to rally the people of life to rise up and fight for the unalienable right to life for all Americans ... born and unborn!

We are doing so because every day seems to bring with it a new attack on innocent human life.
Look at what Barack Obama has done in just his first few weeks in office:

Rescinded the "Mexico City policy" and authorized your tax dollars to fund international groups that are promoting abortion around the world.

Begun the process of eliminating the "conscience clause" that protects doctors and nurses from being forced to take part in the crime of abortion.

Expanded human experimentation by increasing federal funding of destructive embryonic stem cell research.

Renewed funding for UNFPA – the United Nations group that helped China carry out its "one child" policy of forced sterilization and forced abortions.

Promised to sign the "Freedom of Choice" Act - which, if it ever were to reach his desk, would undo every pro-life law in all fifty states.

But that's far from all he's done. He's appointing rabid pro-abortion extremists to key positions in the government. The list is long and includes some of the most hard-line pro-abortion fanatics in the country:

Hillary Clinton is Secretary of State.

Kathleen Sebelius, the radical pro-abortion extremist governor of Kansas, has been tapped to be Secretary of Health and Human Services. Archbishop Raymond L. Burke, Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, had this to say about the appointment: "No matter how good Governor Sebelius' record regarding other human life concerns may be, if she is not committed to the safeguarding of human life from its very inception, she should not be entrusted with the questions of health and human services for our nation." Amen to that!

Rahm Emanuel, is Obama's Chief of Staff. He had a 100% pro-abortion rating from NARAL while a member of Congress.

Ellen Moran, the former Executive Director of the pro-abortion group Emily's List is now White House Communications Director.

Melody Barnes, a board member of Emily's List, is Domestic Policy advisor.

Dawn Johnson, a former abortion rights attorney for NARAL, is the Assistant Attorney General for the office of Legal Counsel.

James B. Steinberg, Obama's Deputy Secretary of State, is on record saying that it is unconstitutional to keep your tax dollars from funding abortions.

Nancy-Ann DeParle - an abortion advocate who worked on the Clinton health care plan - will head up the White House Office of Health Care Reform.

David Ogden, our new Deputy Attorney General, represented the interests of pornographers over the protection of children.

Our Lord told us that "by their fruits you will know them."

We're seeing the anti-life fruit of Barack Obama ... and it is rotten to the core!

But what else would you expect from the man who - not once but three times - voted to block legislation that would save the life of a child born alive in a botched abortion!

We must not abandon our unborn brothers and sisters in this their hour of greatest need!

But let me warn you. That commitment will require you to make sacrifices and give of yourself for the sake of the youngest members of our human family. You may have to ...

... give up a Saturday morning to pray outside a local abortion clinic;
... or spend time helping your church’s pro-life group organize an activity;
... or meet with your priest or pastor and challenge him to preach against the evil of abortion;
... or confront a family member who is pro-abortion.

As you can see, I wasn’t kidding when I told you that your commitment today will force you to take risks. But DO NOT BE AFRAID!!! God will be with you!!!

Now that Barack Obama has declared war on the most defenseless members of our human family, we need to use all of our resources to sound the alarm, mobilize the people of life, energize our clergy members, and lead the pro-life forces to victory over abortion!
Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Frank Pavone National Director, Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries

PS One more thing you can do for your unborn brothers and sisters is this: PRAY for President Obama. God seeks the hearts of everyone, that they may turn to him and live! Pray for the conversion of our President. Ask the Holy Spirit to enkindle the fire of His love in the heart of Barack Obama. God bless.
