African Americans Should Send Pro-Family Message to President-Elect Says Dr. Alveda King

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said today that African Americans celebrating the upcoming inauguration of President-Elect Barack Obama should carry a pro-family agenda to Washington, DC.

“African Americans are pro-life and favor procreative marriage,” said Dr. King. “As we see the dawn of a new year and a great milestone being passed, blacks across the country should let our new president know that we want babies in the womb protected and traditional marriage respected. The accomplishment of an African American holding the nation’s highest office will be of little value if the black community continues to be destroyed by the horrible plague of abortion.”

“We need to party with a purpose,” added Dr. King. “We need to let Barack Obama know that our children’s lives are more important than the money and political support of the abortion lobby.”

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