Forty-five years ago today, my Uncle M.L., the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered by an assassin's bullet. Sometimes I wonder what life would be like if that shot had never been fired; what our nation would be like if that bullet had missed. Many are the times I wish he were here.
For the past few days, I have been restless, often waking from dreaming with the burdens of the aborted unborn and the victims of sex selection abortions and sex trafficking on my heart. Then seemingly out of nowhere, I felt, not heard a whisper in my spirit: "Alveda, let God order your steps."
The same Philadelphia Board of Health that ignored Gosnell's House of Horrors is at it again! After ignoring several demands from local citizens and outraged prolife civil rights leaders calling to end the terrors of abortion in their city, the Board of Health has passed a new resolution last Friday, February 15, 2013 calling for the federal government and the state of Pennsylvania to fund all abortions for poor women. Haven't they harmed enough women already? Now they want to go back for more killing.
