Pro-Abortion Groups Protesting Freedom Rides

Washington, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, announced today that various pro-abortion groups in the Atlanta area are protesting the Freedom Rides, which will arrive in Atlanta on Saturday to pray at the tomb of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“These groups accuse us of lying and distorting historical facts,” Fr. Frank said, “but the Freedom Rides intend to show the nation the truth about abortion. Abortionist Martin Haskell has said under oath, describing the abortion procedure, ‘The skull is brought out in fragments rather than as a unified piece.’ Do these pro-abortion fanatics really expect us to believe that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would want that kind of violence legally protected?”

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., declared, “I have no doubt that if they were alive, my uncle Martin and my father A.D. would be with us on these Freedom Rides for the unborn.”

The pro-abortion groups have sought to deny the pro-life groups the use of the King Center, and plan to have their own counter-demonstration.

    Dr. King: I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you are doing to support Fr. Frank’s work. Your presence means so much and please know that we are praying for you and all the Freedom Riders. I think your uncle would have been so proud of you! Be strong and keep fighting the good fight. The fact that the pro-abort side is getting so upset surely means you are doing something right! We will pray for your safety and success.
