"Newsweek online has an interview with Martin Luther King's niece, Alveda King, that's astonishing," so says Dawn Eden.

Ms. King is postabortive and a member of Silent No More, as we are.

Best quote: "My uncle said that 'the Negro cannot win if he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for personal comfort and safety.'"

Most effective quote: "[W]e have a greater responsibility as a compassionate society to teach our young people, male and female, the responsibility of parenting, what happens when you have sex, and to teach again like we used to: be prepared to raise a child if you have sex. People stopped saying that. And so I do have compassion for the young person who says, 'If I have this baby, my life will be ruined.' But I believe the answer is: Think about that before you have the sex. I would say to that young lady, if she's already pregnant, then we go into intervention and look for opportunities to have the child adopted, or to strengthen her with maybe a scholarship to finish school so she doesn't feel deserted or abandoned."

[Yeah, yeah, what she said!]

Most surprising quote: "Jesse [Jackson] was one of the first spokespersons against abortion, he said it was genocide, and he firmly supported that for a long time. He changed and that’s when we parted ways."

Kudos to Newsweek and writer Karen Fragala for printing this, even if it is only online. Not sure if it's in the deadtree edition. Anyone know?
