Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate and Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, today commented on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s remarks comparing opponents of his health care bill to supporters of slavery.
“Senator Reid has written a bill that would force Americans to pay for the abortion of babies and he implies that opposition to his efforts is evil? His comments are outrageous!” said Dr. King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “It’s Senator Reid’s bill that treats unborn humans like property. If anything, it’s his actions that should be compared to support for slavery.”
