Dr. Alveda King to Join African American Leaders in Calling for No
Abortion in Health Care Bill
Date: July 23, 2009
Washington, DC – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life
and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will join with other African
American leaders Monday at 10:00 AM in front of the Cannon House Office
Building to demand that abortion and Planned Parenthood be excluded from any
health care reform legislation.
"Our message is clear – abortion is neither health care nor a benefit.
It’s genocide," said Dr. King. "Give us procreative reproductive rights.
Repair our communities with life affirming programs. My fellow civil rights
workers and I will be on Capitol Hill to say that if President Obama,
Speaker Pelosi, or anyone else truly wants to reduce the number of
abortions, they will not coerce Americans to pay for them and they will not
subsidize Planned Parenthood, the billion-dollar business that has killed
more black children than the KKK."
