Fr. Frank Comments on the Passing of Coretta Scott King


Fr. Frank Pavone


Priests for Life commends to the Lord the soul of Coretta Scott King, with prayers for the comfort of her family, and with fond recollections of the ministry of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King made it clear that he was not simply fighting for the Black man. He was fighting for the equality of every human life. We are honored to continue Dr. King’s legacy in our day by fighting for the equality of the unborn child. We are proud to have the niece of Coretta and Martin King on our pastoral staff. Dr. Alveda King works full time for an end to abortion, declaring, “How can the dream survive if we murder the children?”

You may send a note of condolence to Alveda and the entire King family by emailing her at
