Fr. Frank Pavone and Evangelist Alveda King Observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today joined Evangelist Alveda King to observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at celebrations held in Atlanta.
 
“King Day is always a powerful reminder of how far we have come in the struggle for civil rights and how far we have yet to go,” said Fr. Pavone.  “In the Fifties and Sixties, Americans fought for equality and for basic rights.  Today, we fight for those who are denied the most basic right of all – the right to life.  Through prayer and activism, we are closer than ever to winning this battle.”
 
Evangelist Alveda King, niece of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. and Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, adds that while much has changed, much is yet to be done.  “Having grown up in the civil rights movement led by my Uncle M.L. and my father A.D. King, and having been raised in the segregated South, I know what it is to be marginalized by society,” said states.  “Today, no one is more discriminated against than the baby in the womb.  It’s our responsibility as citizens and as members of the human race to work for that baby’s most fundamental civil right.”
 
Father Pavone and Evangelist King invite their fellow citizens to the sign a statement on the Beloved Community, which can be found here.
