“To this day, by executing the agenda of their white supremacist founder, Planned Parenthood has developed what I consider to be a method of womb lynching,” said the Founder of the Life Education and Resource Network, Johnny Hunter. “That lynching has resulted in the termination of more than twenty million Black lives.”
The complaint accuses Planned Parenthood of supporting and abetting racist and eugenicist policies throughout the United States through its targeted abortion promotion in Black communities. The complaint claims that the multi-billion dollar corporation “has provided its services in a manner that perpetuates the systemic racism that was rife in America before 1964,” and that its “services have resulted in a disproportionate and negative impact and treatment of Blacks and increasingly Latinos.”
Life Issues Institute issued a report in 2012 demonstrating that a shocking 79% of Planned Parenthood abortion centers were located within walking distance of minority communities. Live Action News reports that "[this] contributes to more Black babies aborted than any other demograpic and more Black babies killed by abortion each year than the other top leading causes of death combined."
Is abortion racist? Statistics point to abortion being weaponized specifically against minority communities, and Black leaders from various and diverse backgrounds are making a stand to protect Black lives from this whitewashed facet of systemic racism embedded in our communities.
Alveda King commented, “As my Uncle Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. reminded the nation in 1963, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ It is my prayer that the arc of the universe will now impact HHS, igniting justice for our children in the womb. Now is the time!”

If you joined us last night for our first-ever virtual event, thank you for your participation and support. We were thrilled that hundreds of life advocates attended! And, based on feedback during and after our Annual Fundraising Banquet, our guests enjoyed being with us, too! Here’s a small sampling of the kind words our viewers shared:
“Great job tonight!”
“It was fantastic!”
“What a wonderful presentation. My husband loved it!”
“Wonderful job. Very professional. I wanted to increase my donation after listening to Matt.”
“MCFL is in my heart. Thank you so much.”
“Congratulations on your first event. Seems as though everything went off wonderfully from our viewpoint.”
“A terrific fundraiser tonight!”
"Hello from the Perfetti family! Thank you for your priceless efforts to end the abortion nightmare!"
"This event is so well done! A class act. I am giving the best and most that I can. Go MCFL!"
[ Cardinal Sean O'Malley ] "This is a team effort - the Church and society are blessed by all that you do and your faithful witness."
My hardworking team and I are humbled by such glowing reviews. Shucks, we’re even blushing a little. Yet we’re not ready to pat ourselves on the back, turn off the lights and go home, because we are still $61,164 short of the $100,000 goal we need to raise by the end of this month.
Our faithful donors have stepped up, as they always do, and, as a result, we have raised nearly $40,000 so far. But as you heard during the event, or as you’ll learn when you watch it here, we cannot invest in the necessary resources to accomplish our lifesaving mission within the Commonwealth unless that number jumps significantly. So, if you haven’t yet made a Banquet gift to Massachusetts Citizens for Life, I invite you to do so today.
We packed a lot of stellar speakers into one hour. Each has a compelling story that will lift your spirits and remind you all over again why you partner with us in the fight for life and why each single gift makes a difference.
The Pats don’t play until Sunday night. Saturday’s college football lineup? Meh. Red Sox-Yankees? No guarantees there, but I’m promising you a grand slam. So put your feet up this weekend and prepare to be wowed by the likes of Melissa Ohden, Dr. Alveda King, Cardinal Sean O’Malley, and many many other dynamic presenters, each of whom knows what it means to love, fight, thrive.

Dr. Alveda King will join us this September 17th at 7:00PM online, as one of our special guest speakers at our annual fundraising banquet.
Daughter of the late slain civil rights activist Rev. A. D. King and his wife, Naomi Barber King, and niece of the iconic civil rights activist, Martin Luther King Jr., Alveda has become one of the most eloquent and tenacious of advocates for the civil rights of the unborn. Currently, Dr. King serves as Director of African American Outreach for Gospel of Life at Priests for Life, which is headed by Father Frank Pavone. She also consults with the Africa Humanitarian Christian Fellowship, founded by her mentor, Pastor Allen McNair of Believers' Bible Christian Church in Atlanta, Georgia. She is a former college professor, holding a Masters of Arts degree in Business Management. Her undergraduate studies in journalism and sociology helped her to become a published author. Her most popular works are her bestsellers, Sons Of Thunder: The King Family Legacy, and I Don't Want Your Man, I Want My Own. This inspirational collection of testimonies is used at conferences and workshops around the world. Alveda's Doctorate of Law was conferred by Saint Anselm College. She has served on the boards and committees of numerous organizations, including the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, Coalition Of African American Pastors, and the Judeo-Christian Coalition For Constitutional Restoration. She also served in the Georgia State House of Representatives, and is an accomplished actress and songwriter.
During the years of the Civil Rights Movement, led by her Uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Alveda's family home was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama in the heat of the struggle. "Daddy's house was bombed, then in Louisville, Kentucky his church office was bombed. I was also jailed during the open housing movement," she recalls. Alveda has continued her long-term work as a civil rights activist, speaking out on issues that face society today. "I believe that School Choice is a pressing civil rights issue. Perhaps the most compelling issue of all, however, is the life of the unborn."
