On FOX News’ “FOX & Friends” Monday, niece of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Alveda King reacted to recent calls for Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam to resign, the evangelical Christian saying that “We need to forgive” Gov. Northam and instead “ask him to rescind” actions against “little human beings in the womb.”
“When the story initially broke, I said, ‘Well, wow, 35 years ago. We need to forgive him,’” stated evangelist Alveda King.
Later in the show, King continued, “[R]ather than to ask the governor to resign, I would ask him to rescind all of the legislation that he has approved that supports the crime against humanity, which is abortion. I would say, stay there. Reverse all of those actions. Stop agreeing to kill little human beings in the womb.”
Alveda King’s comments came after a photograph on the yearbook page ofVirginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) was discovered, showing “two men, one appearing to be in blackface and one wearing a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood, according to a story by The Virginian-Pilot and The Washington Post,” reported CNSNews.com. This just days after the Virginia governor described how post-birth abortion would proceed.
Planned Parenthood, which donated $3 million to Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s campaign, has since called on him to resign. President Trump also weighed in, calling Northam’s statements on his yearbook page and late-term abortion: “Unforgiveable!”
Below is a transcript of Alveda King’s remarks from “FOX & Friends”:
Ainsley Earhardt: “The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and a FOX News contributor Dr. Alveda King. She joins us now. Good morning to you. Thanks for joining us.”
Alveda King: “Good morning, Pete, Ainsley and ‘FOX & Friends.’ Hi everybody.”
Pete Hegseth: “Good morning.”
Earhardt: “Hello to you, too. We want to talk about the Super Bowl. But first, we want to get your reaction to this story. What is your opinion? Should he resign?”
King: “When the story initially broke, I said, ‘Well, wow, 35 years ago. We need to forgive him.’ However, forgiveness is one thing, but how do we move forward is another thing. And rather than to ask the governor to resign, I would ask him to rescind all of the legislation that he has approved that supports the crime against humanity, which is abortion. I would say, stay there. Reverse all of those actions. Stop agreeing to kill little human beings in the womb. You’re a pediatrician. You know those are human beings right there in the womb.
“And so, I believe he could do a really good deed if he’s very serious, especially about that apology – 35 years ago.
“Stop working with Planned Parenthood, who Margaret Sanger really did speak to the Klu Klux Klan. She did. So, stop doing Klu Klux Klan-ish things and reverse and rescind all of those ugly laws that he is still supporting today.
“How is he going to lead the people of his state when he’s killing the human beings in the womb in his state and he’s a pediatrician?”
