    Roe vs. Wade was 1973, long after King was assassinated. Did he see abortion as an issue or is this something smaddy tacked his name onto?

    I have read this but I am not sure of its authenticity. If this was after his death one wonders why this would be attributed to him.. :(

    According to MLK's niece, Dr. Alveda King, this quote is authentic.

    Similar to the recent "MLK was a Republican" billboard, Planned Parenthood is using Dr. King to promote their organization. PP is saying that MLK supported abortion.

    Now, yes, in 1966, Dr. King did accept an award from Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood.

    King's wife, Coretta, gave his "acceptance speech."

    But, I've read this speech; and it is clearly talking about BIRTH CONTROL, not abortion.

    HERE IS THE ENTIRE SPEECH:

    Is it just me or does anyone find the usage of MLK's image for some agenda disingenuous and patronizing?

    During 1957 - 1958, Dr. King wrote a column for Ebony Magazine called "Advice For Living."

    People wrote in their questions for Dr. King to answer.

    Here is one concerning abortion:

    That started when the traitor used or should I say misused his image and statements to get Cali voters to shoot down education affirmative action. Then took it nationwide for money. So that cat has been out of the bag for some time
