The niece of civil-rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. says Black Lives Matter should extend their protests to include fighting abortion.

“If black lives matter, then why is it that black women are more than five times as likely as a white woman to have an abortion?” Alveda King, a Christian minister said on “The Jim Bakker Show.”

“I think the womb that brings forth the black life should matter … Because black lives absolutely matter, what about the babies in that womb? What about that mama?”

Founded in 2013, Black Lives Matter stages large protests against racism and violence toward black people.

King also criticized Planned Parenthood for operating “abortion mills” in minority neighborhoods which target black women.

“We have been tricked and fooled and bought into that lie that abortion is health care and it’s helping our communities,” King said.

King is director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries.
