Dr. King, Fr. Pavone praise Rosa Parks, Draw Pro-life Parallel


Priests for Life



Atlanta, GA - Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, today issued the following statement upon the death of Rosa Parks:

“We are saddened at the death of Rosa Parks today and remember her with gratitude. Rosa Parks' act of defiance in refusing to move to the back of a bus was actually an act of obedience to God, affirming the equality of every human being. Today, those who fight for the equality of children before birth must likewise resist unjust laws that permit abortion. Individuals should refuse to cooperate in the implementation of policies that allow the killing of children.”
