Juanita Bynum’s Domestic Abuse Disclosure Brings to Mind Another Form of Abuse Says Dr. Alveda King

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Date: November 1, 2007

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today said that the story of alleged domestic abuse suffered by gospel singer and televangelist Juanita Bynum reminded her of the pain she herself suffered from abortion.

"Hearing of the trauma that Juanita Bynum endured makes me reflect on another form of abuse that I suffered twice, abortion," said Dr. King. "Both domestic abuse and abortion are violent attacks on women's God given, natural roles as wives, mothers, and nurturers. God intends that husbands and wives love and care for each other and that mothers and fathers love and nurture their children. Abuse and abortion are contrary to God's will. They are blows not only to the flesh, but also the spirit."

"The good news, as Sister Juanita already knows, is that there is healing through Jesus. I know that my own healing, especially the recovery that came after being victimized by an involuntary abortion, came from the grace and mercy of God. I pray that women who have also been victimized by the lies of the abortion industry or threats from husbands, boyfriends, or parents will seek out groups like Rachel's Vineyard for comfort and renewal, as I did. Love is what God commands us to do, and love never fails."

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.
