King thinks so.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]King, the pro-life niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., attended a Washington, D.C. press conference launching “Cosmo Harms Minors,” a campaign by Victoria Hearst and the National Center on Sexual Exploitation on April 22. At the event, Dr. King explained to MRC Culture that Cosmo’s material helps “line the pockets of the abortion industry,” and that, “Planned Parenthood is joining Cosmo” to “lead that girl into an abortion.”
King serves as pastoral associate and director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and recently joined Fox News as a contributor.
Women’s magazine Cosmopolitan “target[s] young girls to expand their audience and increase profits,” a press release announcing the event read, with a “pornographic ‘how-to’ sex guide encouraging readers to engage in violent and dangerous sexual acts in every issue.”
When MRC Culture asked about Cosmo’s glamorization of abortion to young girls, Dr. King highlighted the magazine’s connection to the abortion industry.
“[B]y promoting hyper-sexuality, which would cause the girls, perhaps, to get an early pregnancy or unexpected or premature pregnancy – one that they were not looking for – it leads them right to the door of the abortion clinic,” she said. “So these links are together. Cosmo is promoting behavior that’s going to help to line the pockets of the abortion industry.”
