Dr. Alveda King visits Nancy Pelosi's Office, July 27, 2009
Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate and Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, joined with other civil rights leaders, including Rev. Johnny Hunter and Rev. Stephen Broden, on Capitol Hill to urge lawmakers to exclude abortion coverage and Planned Parenthood from any health care reform legislation. Before visiting Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, Dr. King said at a press conference with Rev. Pat Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition, “Abortion is neither health care nor a ‘benefit.’ It’s genocide.”
