Dr. Alveda King Calls Comparison of Tiller to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 'Offensive Beyond Belief'

ATLANT, June 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today reacted to remarks by late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart that compared the killing of George Tiller to the assassination of her uncle.

"For LeRoy Carhart to mention the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who worked through peaceful and non-violent means, in the same breath with that of George Tiller, whose work ended peace and brought violence to babies in the womb, is offensive beyond belief," said Dr. King.  "The analogy is just wrong."

"Dr. Carhart also speaks of hate crimes," added Dr. King.  "I would simply ask him, is it not hateful to regard an entire class of people as non-human because they're unwanted?"

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, also commented, "The message of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was that every human being has equal dignity.  LeRoy Carhart and every other abortionist violate that message every time they dismember a baby.  The comparison is ridiculous."


Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.

Liberalism is a mental disorder.

p.s. a career of dismembering babies before their first breath has taken its toll on Carhart. Dead man walking.

How long are American blacks going to continue to swallow the Democrat Party line? Democrats are pro-abortion. They want to see little black babies dismembered in the womb. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood referred to blacks as “human weeds.” Hillary has praised Margaret Sanger.

How long?

The Democrats have been anti-Black from the outset, yet American blacks vote for Democrats 95%. They hate Judge Clarence Thomas. But they love and support Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer and Hillary.

How long?

I cannot rightly answer that.
It will be for them to decide, no doubt.
As long as Barry is proclaimed the “great black hope”, etc., I would not look to ro for a change in their mindsets anytime soon.

Yes, this Tiller was a friggin’ scumbag, but for the love of God, will you idiots drop the brainwashing at some point and quit making MLK out to be some type of deity?

MLK had a noble idea for his people, but they aren't my people, and the results of his actions have been perverted and co-opted to the point where we now have rampant reverse discrimination, a muslim communist in the White House, and our country has largely been destroyed by political correctness and misplaced white guilt. Give me a damn break with the MLK worship already.

I couldn't agree more, but I think that MLK's own NIECE, who ALSO agrees that his message has been perverted, certainly has the right to use his name.

Apparently, the abortionist Carhart also considers himself the equivalent of MLK.

You clearly know NOTHING about Dr. Alveda King, what she has done and what her own family thinks of her.

A little known fact about Dr. King:

In some of the darker days of the civil rights movement, King supplemented his income by providing some of the finest partial birth abortions The South had ever seen. Guy was a real craftsman when it came to killing babies, just like Tiller.

They were both the same kind of "Doctors"

People have lost all sense and knowledge of real American history.....sadly, that would include Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr too. Obama is not the great black hope!

Actually, I use a non-sarcasm tag, whenever I post something serious. You haven't seen it since I haven't had the chance to use it.

You are correct. A perfect statement that needs to be repeated over and over.

Please provide proof of what you state. If King performed abortions there should be proof of it, and I am not talking of someone who says, “I know he performed abortions”, I mean actual proof.

I think MLK was a geat man, and did a lot for everyone, but I do agree that we need to stop making him some sort of deity. I am half black and believe his idea of equality in terms of everyone being treated equally is of course good, but I do think that discrimination in the name of ending discrimination is a bad thing.

however i don’t understand how he’s to blame for the muslim communist in the white house.
