Dr. Alveda King on King Day: The Dream Includes Us All, Born and Unborn

Priests for Life

January 18, 2010
   
 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., released the following comments today on the celebration of her Uncle's life.


"Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke of a Beloved Community where all are treated with respect and dignity," said Dr. King.  "He fought against society's exclusion of people who were treated as less than human because of their appearance.  Today, we are compelled to continue Uncle Martin's fight by standing up for those who are treated as less than human because of their helplessness and inconvenience.


"The unborn are as much a part of the Beloved Community as are newborns, infants, teenagers, adults, and the elderly.  Too many of us speak of tolerance and inclusion, yet refuse to tolerate or include the weakest and most innocent among us in the human family.  As we celebrate the life of Uncle Martin, let us renew our hearts and commit our lives to treating each other, whatever our race, status, or stage of life, as we would want to be treated.  Let us let each other live."


Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, will join Alveda and her family as a program participant in the Martin Luther King Jr. Annual Commemorative Service at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta.
