Dr. Alveda King - Sorrow that Dr. Tiller Didn't Live to Repent

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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

Date: June 1, 2009

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said today that the killing of late-term abortionist George Tiller brings tremendous sorrow.

“Two years ago, I visited George Tiller’s clinic in hope of telling him that babies desire mercy,” said Dr. King. “I wanted to share with him the harm I experienced from abortion. My prayer was that one day he would join me in repentance. I am deeply sorry that his life was taken before that could happen.”

“It’s especially horrifying that Dr. Tiller was shot in church,” added Dr. King. “My grandmother, Alberta King, was killed by a Christian-hating gunman as she played the organ during Sunday services. Just as the womb should be a safe haven, so should church. I condemn this murder in the strongest possible terms.”

A colleague of Dr. King’s in a pro-life African-American coalition, Pastor Stephen Broden, also declared, “Pro-lifers are devastated by the Tiller killing. In the great tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we pray, march, and counsel peacefully. Just as earlier civil rights workers, pro-lifers do not answer violence with violence.”

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.
