This Weekend’s Pro-Life Freedom Ride Moved into High Gear by New Survey Results


Priests for Life





Birmingham, AL – As civil rights and pro-life activists gather for this weekend’s launch of the first Pro-Life Freedom Ride, new survey results show that raised awareness about abortion could have a profound impact among African Americans.


“Friday’s Birmingham rally and Saturday’s Pro-Life Freedom Ride are about spreading the message that an entire group of Americans, the unborn, is being denied the most fundamental civil right, the right to live,” said Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.  “These new poll results confirm that the more people learn about abortion and its impact on lives, families, and communities, the more they reject it.”


In conjunction with the Freedom Rides, Priests for Life is releasing the results of polling and focus group work it recently commissioned among the African-American community.  Commenting on the results, the polling company/Woman Trend President Kellyanne Conway said, “African Americans are concerned about the scourge of abortion in their community, and respond to related facts and figures.”  She continued, “Large majorities agree that every life should have a chance, regardless of race, socioeconomic status or circumstance.  They support pregnancy resource centers and call for greater assistance by family, friends and religious and community leaders to help pregnant women and their babies.”


Saturday’s first Pro-Life Freedom Ride, led by Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, will be preceded Friday night by a concert rally at the Birmingham Jefferson County Convention Complex Theatre starting at 7:00 pm.  Details at
