Dr. Alveda King Remembers Sen. Edward Kennedy

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today reflected on the passing of Sen. Edward Kennedy.

“The Ted Kennedy I want to remember is the man who, before he embraced the pro-abortion cause, was like his dearly departed sister Eunice, who was pro-life. Senator Kennedy once compassionately and consistently fought for civil rights. In 1971, he wrote that every human being, wanted or unwanted, had the right to be born. He later changed his position and supported and even sponsored pro-abortion legislation. There were many tragedies in the Senator’s life, but to me, one of the worst is that he stopped supporting the civil rights of those in the womb.”

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, stated, “I recall the visit Dr. King and I made to the Senator’s office last year, during which we quoted abortionists about decapitating children and asked if that was what the Senator meant by the word abortion. Sadly, we got no clear answer. We join in prayer for God’s forgiveness for all who tolerate this violence.”

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
