Nixon Tapes Show One More Link Between Abortion and Racism Says Dr. Alveda King

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., responded today to the news that White House tapes of President Nixon reveal him saying that he thought abortion was ‘necessary’ when one parent was white and one was black.


“Since its inception, the abortion movement has been eliminating people that it considers undesirable – people of color or those with low income,” said Dr. King.  “President Nixon’s comment is just one more reminder that abortion and racism are inextricably linked.”


The Nixon tapes coincide with the release of a new DVD expose on slavery, racism and eugenics, available at, wherein a White House recorded conversation between then President Nixon and staffers shows that the President was in agreement with population control under certain circumstances.
