Dr. Alveda King to Congressman Rangel: “Save the
Babies, Save Social Security”
Washington, DC – Dr. Alveda King,
Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life, today responded to reports that
Congressman Charles Rangel, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, is
working on a plan to save Social Security from a coming financial crunch.
“Congressman Rangel has to be
aware that since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, approximately 48 million
Americans, about a third of them African Americans, have been aborted,” said Dr.
King, the niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Millions of those
now deceased people would have been alive and paying into Social Security today
had not Mr. Rangel and his friends in the abortion lobby had their way.
It’s time Mr. Rangel and his fellow Congressmen connect the dots – save the
babies, save Social Security.”
