By Dr. Alveda King

“Vote as if your life depends upon it. Someone’s life does! Be encouraged that you are not alone in your desire to see an end to the senseless violence against the most helpless of our brothers and sisters. Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us to care for the least of these. We can demonstrate our compassion by voting for pro-life candidates in the upcoming elections.

“My uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said: ‘Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.’

“We must vote for life this year, and every year, because it is the right thing to do.

“Please, I urge you, do[n’t] be distracted by political rhetoric. The most pressing civil rights issue of this season is the protection of the lives of the pre-born.

“Your vote counts. Please cast it, for life!”
