Washington, DC – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life, today responded to reports that Congressman Charles Rangel, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, is working on a plan to save Social Security from a coming financial crunch.

“Congressman Rangel has to be aware that since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, approximately 48 million Americans, about a third of them African Americans, have been aborted,” said Dr. King, the niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  “Millions of those now deceased people would have been alive and paying into Social Security today had not Mr. Rangel and his friends in the abortion lobby had their way.  It’s time Mr. Rangel and his fellow Congressmen connect the dots – save the babies, save Social Security.”
