Hundreds of thousands of women marched on Washington, D.C. over the weekend, supposedly to speak up for women’s rights.
However, the march organizers made it very clear that the event was opposed to the rights of females in the womb and those who speak up against abortion were unwelcome.
Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr. and director of African American outreach for Priests for Life, said the Women’s March on Washington was a “missed opportunity” to stand for every woman’s rights.
In an interview Sunday with Fox & Friends, King explained how she aborted her unborn child and struggled for years with pain and regret. She said that by supporting abortion, the march organizers ignored how abortion has hurt and destroyed so many women’s lives, including her own unborn child’s.
“I don’t understand why, if this is a sisterhood, how they can leave out the little babies in the womb, the mothers who have been hurt by abortion. I think that’s part of the message,” King said.
“The little baby girls in the womb, what about them? Who is going to represent those little girls who are being aborted?” she continued.

The march took a decidedly pro-abortion turn a couple weeks ago after initially touting itself as inclusive and inter-sectional. It even welcomed several pro-life groups as partners. Just days later, abortion advocates learned about the partnership and made a huge fuss on social media. The march organizers caved to abortion activists’ pressure and kicked out the pro-life groups.
In the midst of the debacle, the march organizers released an official platform that supported abortion. Then, it highlighted the abortion business Planned Parenthood as a premier partner and announced that CEO Cecile Richards was a guest speaker.
Some pro-lifers marched anyway, refusing to be silenced by the pro-abortion bent of the march and its celebrity-studded rally. They marched to demonstrate that women’s rights should include equal treatment and protections for every woman, including those in the womb.
The march was held just before the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which opened the doors to abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. In the past four decades, the infamous decision allowed for the abortion deaths of nearly 60 million unborn babies and caused immeasurable suffering to women, men and society as a whole.
