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!”
