Dr. Alveda King Blasts Billboard “Censorship”

Dr. Alveda King, director of African-American Outreach for Priests for Life, released the following statement today regarding the billboard in Manhattan that proclaims “The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb.” The billboard was taken down after pressure from local politicians and neighborhood residents.

“It is an outrageous act of censorship that this billboard was taken down,” Dr King said. “This billboard should be posted in every city of the country. And it should provoke outrage in the African-American community—not because it is racist, but because of the truth it reveals; the truth that is being kept from the African-American community.

“Black people in New York and all over the country should be outraged at the numbers of black babies we lose every single day to abortion. An astonishing 60 percent of African-American pregnancies in the five boroughs of New York City end in abortion. That’s unfathomable!

“Some people are angry about the billboard, but that anger is misplaced. We should all be upset and heartbroken that so many African-American women have bought into the lie that abortion will solve their problems. Legal abortion has been with us for 38 years, and the problems facing the African-American community have not gone away.”

Dr. King concluded: “The message of this billboard is totally accurate. The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb! It’s a travesty of justice that it is being taken down.”


  1. you americans are sensitive to this truth of abortion?! what the heck your proposed laws do exactly this! killing!!!

    hmmm seems like they are MISINFORMED to the horrible realities of tearing down a baby till he/she stops breathing....


  3. I am saddened that people don't look further into the horrific actions of abortion and the long term devastation is causes to society. Dr. King is a black woman who is not swooned by the illusions of so-called women's rights? The scandal caused by the pro-abortion community has not only set the US minorities back years, its implanted the false entitlement to hopeless mothers that killing their beloved own is an act of mercy, and true love. Scary to think that Mass murder by indoctrination did not end with Hitler, it reinvented itself a few years later, in the US. Great work Dr. King I am so proud of you! I hope at least one desperate mother and father hear your calls! Please Lord save us all from this destruction!
