    At a pro-life rally several years ago in Boston, MA, Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., gave an impassioned speech in defense of life. “What would Martin Luther King say if he saw the skulls of babies at the bottom of abortion pits?” she asked. “If Martin Luther King’s dream is to live, our babies must live.”
    As long as abortion is allowed in our country, we will only become more enslaved by our selfish ambitions.

    An excerpt from his “I Have a Dream” speech:
    I have a dream today!
    I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; “and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.”
    This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with.
    With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
    And this will be the day — this will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning:
    My country ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
    Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim’s pride,
    From every mountainside, let freedom ring!
    And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.
    And when this happens, when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:
    Free at last! Free at last!
    Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!
