Atlanta, GA - Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today reacted to remarks by late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart that compared the killing of George Tiller to the assassination of her uncle.

"For LeRoy Carhart to mention the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who worked through peaceful and non-violent means, in the same breath with that of George Tiller, whose work ended peace and brought violence to babies in the womb, is offensive beyond belief," said Dr. King.  "The analogy is just wrong."

"Dr. Carhart also speaks of hate crimes," added Dr. King.  "I would simply ask him, is it not hateful to regard an entire class of people as non-human because they're unwanted?"

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, also commented, "The message of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was that every human being has equal dignity.  LeRoy Carhart and every other abortionist violate that message every time they dismember a baby.  The comparison is ridiculous."
