Washington DC, Oct 1, 2008 (CNA).- Pro-life leader Dr. Alveda King, niece of civil rights leader Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., recently discussed her past experiences seeking services from a Planned Parenthood clinic in an interview. Saying the organization gave her “bad advice, bad counsel” and lied about her abortion, she called for taxpayer funding to be pulled from Planned Parenthood.
Speaking to Cybercast News Service, Dr. King described how she had two abortions and then later a miscarriage in the early 1970s, years before she joined the pro-life movement.
Describing herself as “uninformed and misinformed” about abortion, King said the doctor who performed the first abortion sent her to Planned Parenthood for the second.
There, counselors told her that the unborn child was not a baby, “it’s just a blob of tissue.”
