Dr. King and Fr. Frank Pavone on Coretta Scott King


Priests for Life



WASHINGTON, Feb. 6 -- Dr. Alveda King, niece of the late Coretta Scott King, and Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries, released the following statement today as memorial services begin for her aunt.

"Aunt Coretta exemplified the strength and beauty of Queen Esther as a devoted wife, loving mother, and cherished servant-leader. One of her favorite songs, "Ain't Got Time to Die" gave true expression to her zeal for life. She will live forever in the memory of her beloved community."

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries, said, "All of those who work with me in the ministry of protecting unborn children join together today to express our condolences and promise our prayers for Alveda and the entire King family. It is an honor to have a member of the King family working with us to continue the King legacy, which is about the equal dignity of every human life. As Coretta Scott King is laid to rest this week, may our hearts remain restless until every form of oppression is eliminated from our midst, and justice is secured for everyone without exception."
