pregnant African-American womanAmerica is being called to prayer Saturday for the impact of abortion, especially on the minority community.

Several notable events have occurred this week – the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's famous "I have a dream speech" in 1963; the release of a report "Black and Brown Americans in Search of the American Dream," which, in part, decries the decimation of the black and brown population through abortion; and the 2019 National Day of Mourning.

Dr. Alveda King of Civil Rights for the Unborn tells OneNewsNow that the latter event began with stops in Virginia and North Carolina and then traveled to Atlanta, where a caravan was launched for the final Saturday event. (See earlier story: "Mourning a great loss")

"[Where we'll be] joining in a church in Birmingham, Alabama – which was once known as 'Bombingham' – to pray and ask God, according to II Chronicles 7:14, to accept our prayers of repentance, hear from heaven, and heal our land," she shares.

King explains that a variety of individuals have joined in the trek to Birmingham to join the procession.

"There are so many African-Americans [involved] – but not only African-American leaders, but people across America who believe that we are one human race, Acts 17:26, one blood; and as President Trump says, we all bleed the same. We don't worship government – we worship God."

Dr. King also encourages people throughout the country that as the group joins in solemn prayer Saturday in Birmingham, to set aside time for personal prayer – at home, at work, or at play – to end the abortion of minority babies.

Out of an estimated 61 million babies who have been aborted, well over 20 million were African-American.
