Pro-life leader Dr. Alveda King criticized Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams on Thursday for claiming women should abort their unborn babies if they are struggling financially.

Speaking with Fox & Friends, King said the notion that killing children is a solution to poverty is a “really frightening” view.

“What Stacey Abrams is saying, be afraid,” King said. “Be so afraid you want to get abortions first, that it’s more important to get an abortion than it is to pray, than it is to unify, come together, and solve the problems of America together.”

Earlier this week, MSNBC asked Abrams, a Georgia gubernatorial candidate, about her emphasis on expanding abortions when Americans are more concerned about the rising costs of gas and food. Abrams answered that abortions are a solution to economic issues, prompting massive criticism.

“Having children is why you’re worried about your price for gas, it’s why you’re concerned about how much food costs. For women, this is not a reductive issue,” Abrams told MSNBC.

Responding Thursday, King criticized Abrams for feeding into women’s fears by telling them to kill their own children instead of offering real help to families in need.

“And so when women are scared or frightened or don’t know where the next meal is coming from, it’s very unkind to suggest making sure you abort your baby because otherwise, you’re going to starve to death,” she told Fox & Friends. “That’s kind of what she’s saying and that is really frightening.”

Abrams is running against pro-life Republican Gov. Brian Kemp. Fact checkers have called her out for lying about Kemp’s pro-life record, which includes signing a heartbeat law in 2019 that is saving thousands of unborn babies’ lives. Abrams said she would repeal the law, if elected.

The Georgia Democrat’s position on abortion is radical and bizarre. In September, she claimed an unborn baby’s heartbeat is a “manufactured sound” created to control women.

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams said during a recent public event. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

Polls show Americans are pro-life on abortion, and a recent national poll found 75 percent of Americans essentially agree with the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.
