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

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.”
