Dr. Alveda King Says Sen. Obama's "Quiet Riot" Comment Misses the Point

Washington, DC – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., today responded to the remarks of Senator Barack Obama, who said that “quiet riots” take place in black neighborhoods every day because of hopelessness.

“Senator Obama may know of the ‘quiet riots’ coming from the black community,” said Dr. King, “but he doesn’t understand their source. Seventeen million black babies have been killed by a and the cries of those children, their mothers, and their families are what Senator Obama is hearing. I invite him to listen to those cries more clearly and compassionately. I pray he will realize that hopelessness and despair are only deepened by aborting those who are the future.”

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
