Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will join Alabama religious and political leaders, including elected officials, at a pro-life march at historic Edmund Pettus Bridge outside Selma tomorrow, June 13, at 10:00 AM, and speak at a rally at the State Capitol in Montgomery at 1:30 PM.

“Forty-four years ago, those who sought equal protection under the law for all Americans were beaten and turned away on ‘Bloody Sunday’ at Pettus Bridge,” said Dr. King. “Today, Pettus Bridge will be crossed again for Americans who are denied equal protection, the unborn.”

“In his 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery speech, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said he sought ‘a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience,’” added Dr. King. “The pro-life movement still seeks such a society.”

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
