Democrat Candidates in Debate Show No Concern for Black Victims of Abortion Says Dr. Alveda King

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today questioned why leading Democratic Presidential candidates did not mention abortion last night in a debate geared toward issues facing African Americans.

“John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama talked about the disproportionate number of blacks who die from AIDS, yet no one said a word about another disproportionately high killer of African Americans, abortion,” said Dr. King. “Blacks comprise 12 percent of the population, yet at least one third of the babies aborted in this country are African American. Why? And more to the point, why are politicians afraid to talk about this? If they’re really concerned about racism in America, the abortion industry is an obvious place to start looking.”

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.
