Infanticide And Gladiatorial Contest
Author: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“There was a time when the church was very powerful. It was during that period when the early Christians rejoiced when they were deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days the church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society. Whenever the early Christians entered a town the power structure got disturbed and immediately sought to convict them for being ‘disturbers of the peace’ and ‘outside agitators.’ But they went on with the conviction that they were ‘a colony of heaven,’ and had to obey God rather than man. They were small in number but big in commitment. They were too God-intoxicated to be ‘astronomically intimidated.’ They brought an end to such ancient evils as infanticide and gladiatorial contest.
Things are different now. The contemporary church is often a weak, ineffectual voice with an uncertain sound. It is so often the arch supporter of the status quo. Far from being disturbed by the presence of the church, the power structure of the average community is consoled by the church’s silent and often vocal sanction of things as they are.
But the judgement of God is upon the church as never before. If the church of today does not recapture the sacrificial spirit of the early church, it will lose its authentic ring, forfeit the loyalty of millions, and be dismissed as an irrelevant social club with no meaning for the twentieth century.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) was prolife reveals his niece, Dr. Alveda King. “In advising men and women on questions of personal behavior 50 years ago, Uncle Martin sounded no different than a conservative Christian preacher does now,” said Dr. King. “He was pro-life, pro-abstinence before marriage, and based his views on the unchanging Word of the Bible.” Alveda King continues MLK’s prolife legacy by defending the right to life of all innocent humans, including the unborn, elderly, and disabled and compares abortion to slavery.
“Even as Dred Scott was considered less than fully human, such is the case for the preborn babies in the womb,” said Dr. Alveda King in an endorsement of the California Human Rights Amendment (a ProLife Personhood Amendment). “In property, wills, and estates, the unborn is considered to have rights and may have a guardian appointed. In most states, including California, a tort committed against a child in the womb is actional in civil and an injury is actionable in both civil and criminal law. The only exception to this standard is when the woman choses to abort. This is ridiculous and out of sync with all other law. Even as Dred Scott was considered less than fully human, such is the case for the pre-born babies in the womb. A woman has a right to choose what she does with her body. The baby is not her body. Where is the lawyer for the baby? This is why I support the California Human Rights Amendment (CHRA).”
Similar to the CHRA, the Florida ProLife P ersonhood Amendment Petition will end abortion and protect all innocent human life. Please help us contact churches and pastors in your county in 2013 to ask them to petition for personhood Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, January 20th, 2013.
