University of Pennsylvania Event Uses MLK to Promote Abortion

University of Pennsylvania Event Uses MLK to Promote Abortion

“the talk centered around the ‘intersectionality’ of abortion rights”

Martin Luther King Jr. was a reverend. Would he support abortion?

The College Fix reports:

UPenn event uses Martin Luther King Jr. to promote abortion

This past week played host to the University of Pennsylvania’s 21st Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Lecture in Social Justice, the discussion topic being “reproductive rights” and anti-racism.

Led by Planned Parenthood’s Alexis McGill Johnson and UPenn’s “acclaimed scholar of race, gender and the law” Dorothy Roberts, the talk centered around the “intersectionality” of abortion rights and how racism and white supremacy allegedly “have always been at the heart of assault on reproductive freedom.”

McGill Johnson said that we’ve “never been closer to losing such a fundamental constitutional right” regarding the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade. She also claimed contemporary anti-abortion efforts are like a “21st century version of the Three-fifths Compromise.”

Ironically, she also said there is no state in the Union where “banning or restricting” abortion is popular. If this is true, there should be little concern if Roe is overturned … as such would return abortion “rights”/restrictions to the states. If state legislators ban or severely restrict the procedure, then the legislation’s alleged unpopularity would mean these individuals will be voted out of office, right?

Roberts (left) noted that she is “shocked” at the notion states can do “whatever they want to create burdens” regarding the exercising of a constitutional right. (Roberts has had a past issue with “empirical facts,” noting that when scientists are “fueled” by such “systematically suppressive policies then prevail.”)

With regards to Dr. King, Penn President Amy Gutmann noted that when he was asked “how health care fit into his message on social justice,” King said “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and the most inhuman because it often results in physical death.”

“McGill Johnson said that we’ve “never been closer to losing such a fundamental constitutional right” regarding the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade.”

The right so fundamental, it isn’t mentioned even once.

“Roberts (left) noted that she is “shocked” at the notion states can do “whatever they want to create burdens” regarding the exercising of a constitutional right.”

Funny. She doesn’t seem to have that compunction when talking about guns, which by the way ARE mentioned explicitly.

No comment on the irony of “celebrating” MLK this way and Blacks ate the group that uses abortion—killing their own people—the most?

Black Lives Matter, except to Blacks?

“Politicians argue for abortion largely because they do not want to spend the necessary money to feed, clothe and educate more people. Here arguments for inconvenience and economic savings take precedence over arguments for human value and human life…
Psychiatrists, social workers and doctors often argue for abortion on the basis that the child will grow up mentally and emotionally scarred. But who of us is complete? If incompleteness were the criteri(on) for taking life, we would all be dead.
If you can justify abortion on the basis of emotional incompleteness, then your logic could also lead you to killing for other forms of incompleteness
— blindness, crippleness, old age.”
(Then pro-life) Jesse Jackson, January 1977

Since 1973, more than 19 million black babies have been aborted.
