Martin Luther King Jr’s niece Alveda King says Christians have a responsibility to vote pro-life when they head to the polls this election.
“As you know, it’s so important that we always embrace the sanctity of life. One way to do that is to vote Prolife in every election,” King says.
“Now, as Christians, we are blessed with the responsibility of educating our communities regarding the importance of voting for the sanctity of life in the upcoming elections, and indeed all elections. This responsibility isn’t just for now; this voter education effort should be an ongoing outreach for people of faith! We must continually work to obtain and preserve the right to vote and future votes of babies in the womb, their parents, the sick, the elderly, the poor, all Americans,” she continued.King is encouraging pro-life Christians to encourage their friends and family who appreciate the value of life to get out and vote.
“Again, thank you for your prolife vote as well as your work of motivating members of the faith community to vote for life,” she says.
“As Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, I encourage you to visit our www.politicalresponsibility.com page to review the platforms of the candidates in the upcoming elections.
Also, please join us in praying our “Election prayer for Life,” King continued. “As we pray, let’s remember that this is such an important era in the history of America. We have fought and won many battles. Too many of our young people don’t know our history; many of us have forgotten. All lives hang in the balance.”
“Civil rights. Human rights. It all goes together,” King said.Life News article continues
