Vick Dog Fighting Scandal “Reminds Me of Other Cruelty” Says Dr. Alveda King

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact:  Jerry Horn

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today said that the allegations of animal cruelty announced in the case against star quarterback Michael Vick highlight the disparity in societal protections for animals and unborn humans.

“The appalling cruelty to dogs described in the complaint against Michael Vick immediately reminds me of another kind of cruelty that is not only not punished, but is protected by our authorities,” said Dr. King.  “I’m talking about the incredible cruelty suffered by babies who are stabbed, have limb torn from limb, or have their skulls crushed in the womb by abortionists.  The pain these children endure is undoubtedly excruciating, yet we close our eyes and look the other way in the name of ‘choice.’”

“Yes, of course we should ensure humane treatment of animals,” said Dr. King, “but shouldn’t we also humanely treat humans?”
