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