“Mama King” – Stop All the Bloody Pain

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contacts: Margaret, 888-735-3448, ext. 251

March 10, 2009

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is tired of the violence in American society – in the streets, in the home, and in “health clinics.” Today she is speaking out.

“A pastor in Illinois is gunned down. Music stars make the news with their fists instead of their voices. Violence more and more intrudes where love and beauty should prevail,” said Dr. King, “and I can’t help but wonder if this would be the case if we hadn’t let legalized violence brutalize people in what should be a haven of nurturing, the womb.”

“Maybe I’m a bit like a real life Madea, packing a Bible instead of a gun, but the outrages appear everywhere. From television to music to the movies, our lovely young people are being bombarded with life cheapening messages, messages that when taken to heart lead to more violence. We seem to glorify the ugly and allow beauty to suffer.

“Many young people who hear me speak have taken to calling me ‘Mama King’” added Dr. King. “Well, Mama King has a message of her own – while we’re trying to stimulate the economy, let’s stimulate compassion for the born and the unborn. America, let’s stop all the bloody pain!”

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
