Following visits to Congressional offices, Dr. Alveda King and the above principals will hold a press conference to discuss three key points:

- Abortion is not health care;

- In the Beloved Community envisioned by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., equal justice means that young people in the womb are not terminated and old people in ill health are not denied care because of their age; and

- Now is the time for Democrats and Republicans to come together to stand for compassionate care for all Americans, joining the chorus of “Free At Last” as proclaimed in Dr. King’s “ I Have A Dream” speech.

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