Alveda King: Planned Parenthood Lies About MLK

ATLANTA – Dr. Alveda King, full-time Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, today objected to Planned Parenthood’s latest statements that imply that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would support the organization’s agenda.
“Sometimes I wonder if Planned Parenthood will ever get tired of lying about my Uncle Martin,” said Dr. King, “and then I remind myself that a business built on the lie that a baby isn’t a baby is a stranger to the truth. Just to be clear one more time, there’s no way Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., were he alive today, would support an organization that has helped destroy one-quarter of the African American population.”

“Planned Parenthood would have us believe that a man who preached abstinence before marriage would support an organization that heaps scorn on those who advocate for abstinence education. Planned Parenthood would have us believe that a man who preached non-violence would support an organization that perpetrates violence in the womb hundreds of thousands of times a year. Planned Parenthood would have us believe that a man who preached equality and brotherhood would support an organization that denies the equality of children and cheerfully engages overtly racist potential donors.”

“When my Uncle Martin was alive, Planned Parenthood had not yet mutated ‘reproductive rights’ into child-killing. Today, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would find Planned Parenthood’s agenda repugnant.”

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