ATLANTA – As the family of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gathers today to celebrate his life and legacy, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life – who is in Atlanta with the family – and Evangelist Alveda King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, issued the following statement:

“A little more than 50 years ago, Dr. King delivered a speech in which he asserted that ‘...when we truly believe in the sacredness of human personality, we won't exploit people, we won't trample over people with the iron feet of oppression, we won't kill anybody.’

“These words resound as forcefully today as they did when delivered during the height of the civil rights movement.

“Dr. King would tell us that to end discrimination and violence in our culture, we must end it in ourselves. We do that by loving each other. And loving each other necessarily means that we treat others as we want to be treated.

“As a starting point, we can love each other right now by affirming that each of us has a right to exist.

“In our statement, “The Beloved Community and the Unborn,” we and other leaders in the movement extend civil rights to our most oppressed minority – babies in the womb – and we note that nonviolence is not nonviolence if some violence is still tolerated. The violence still most tolerated in our society is abortion.”

Father Pavone and Evangelist King, the niece of Dr. King, urged all Americans to join the fight to end late-term abortion in this country, as a starting point to abolishing abortion entirely.
