Dr. Alveda King: DHS Memo Makes No Sense

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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

April 22, 2009

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said today that among the many flaws with the recent Department of Homeland Security domestic terrorism memo is its illogical attempt to link pro-lifers with hate groups.

“Abortion is the white supremacist’s best friend,” said Dr. King. “It eliminates black babies at much higher rates than white babies. Disproportionately more abortions among African American women mean they suffer physical and emotional trauma in greater percentages than others. To say, as the Department of Homeland Security does, that white supremacists have exercised a ‘longstanding exploitation of social issues such as abortion’ tells me that either the government, the supremacists, or both are clueless about abortion’s grave impact on the black community.”

“The DHS memo is just plain wrong and incredibly offensive on many levels,” added Dr. King, “none more so than in its attempt to link pro-lifers with hate groups. Janet Napolitano has apologized to veterans for her memo’s characterizations of them, now she needs to do the same for her smears against those of us who want all Americans, including the unborn, protected.”

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.
