Dr. Alveda King: Celebrity Passings Remind Us of the Importance of Each Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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

Date: June 26, 2009

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., commented today on the deaths of Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and Ed McMahon.

“The passing of Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and Ed McMahon takes me back to another time,” said Dr. King, “a time that certainly had its turmoil, but that also had its promises. The passing of these ‘stars’ reminds me of the days when ABC was a fresh and innocent song without hints of profanity or gratuitous sex; the time before beautiful Farrah became an Angel; and Ed and Johnny gave us late night television. Those were the days and times when life was precious in America.

“The memories of Michael, Farrah, and Ed take us back 40 years and over 50 million abortions ago,” added Dr. King. “They remind me and my fellow pro-life civil rights warriors how the choices we make shape not only our lives, but the future of others. They teach us yet again that one life can touch the world.”

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.
