Alveda King: Pelosi deserves Sanger Award for trampling on human rights; Martin Luther King, Jr. would reject it today

ATLANTA -- Dr. Alveda King, director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, reacted today to the announcement that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will receive Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award.

“It’s true that Congresswoman Pelosi deserves Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award – almost no one has done more to promote the killing of innocent babies in the womb than she has,” noted Dr. King.  “If Mrs. Pelosi wants finally to take her role as a public servant seriously, though, she will reject the award named after a racist woman who had no problem speaking to a Ku Klux Klan meeting.”

The Sanger Award has been given annually by Planned Parenthood since 1966, when the Rev. Dr. Luther King, Jr., Alveda King’s uncle, was named, but did not personally accept one of the first four citations.

“It’s ironic that Planned Parenthood would extend to my uncle an award for his human rights work,” Dr. King continued. “I can’t think of an organization that has done more to trample upon human rights than Planned Parenthood.”

“Of course, in 1966, Planned Parenthood did not advocate for abortion and its racist roots were not well known,” added Dr. King.  “Knowing what we know now and 56 million dead children later, I’m confident that the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., a man who gave his life defending others’ rights to life and liberty, would reject any association with Planned Parenthood.”

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, drew a tsunami of support last year when he wrote an open letter to Mrs. Pelosi, challenging her claim to being a faithful and practicing Catholic while spreading a message that abortion is “sacred ground.”

Regarding her upcoming Planned Parenthood award, he said: “Nancy Pelosi receives this less-than-prestigious award, yet is unable to explain why she supports dismembering children. We should continue to demand that she do so. Sign on to”

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

what zara says is true

you catholics are part of the mob in the wider sense
you still do not get it that even popes sided with hitler ,or at least many bishops in germany,the same for bishops in the us
your catholics,what do they believe, the same as kennedy and pelosi,money and free sex are our gods,and for them we do everything,even kill our own children,just like they sacrifised them to molech
then you pavone had the nerve to offer 50000$ to the man who killed tiller the killer,a devil who killed 60 thousand babies and all at once the true believers become the villains while you defend the wicked and your evil bishops give Communion to the ones who legalise it all
the prolife movement is crooked already,all you do is pray to whom ???? Molech,definitely not to God almighty,you are praying to the god of tax exemption to keep you mouth shut and make people belive your approach will be pastoral,in other words bullshit
You have forgotten that Jesus said two things essentially
one of love and compassion for the truly contrite sinner,the other a promise of eternal damnation
MANY MANY of you wicked fallen priests of molech will get the second promise for you betrayal of the most High

to father pavone

as a 100% prolife man,and at age 61 still a virgin and no sins of the youth you YOURSELF are guilty of abortion on demand by allowing to vote for evil politicians as progressive voters so that one may vote for the lesser ???? evil this way you make the already pityfully poor catholic hypocrites on everything in the book more guilty of their involvement in the biggest crime in history
If people are evil GOD forbids to support them in any way,you evil catholics are totally INVOLVED in the abortion crime and you do for gay and pephophiles "priests"
Only the so called radicals still defend LIFE and GOD,and fully understand the involvement of catholics in politics,your bishops do not even have the balls to refuse holy Communion and your wicked popes is a true friend of obama and alike in "who am I to judge" you croonies
catholics,episcopals,methodists, the masons and the mob,one big movement AGAINST almighty God
