Priests for Life announces pro-life ‘freedom rides’

Catholic World News - April 30, 2010

Joined by Dr. Alveda King-- the niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.-- Father Frank Pavone has announced that Priests for Life will be conducting Pro-Life Freedom Rides this summer, evoking the Freedom Rides of 1961 that helped bring about the desegregation of the American South.

“We join our lives and hearts together with those who have gone before us,” said Dr. King. “We take to the bus, to the streets of America, riding for justice and freedom for all, from conception until natural death.”

    African American preborn babies are aborted by Planned Parenthood and their ilk at a rate twice the size of their adult population. Sounds like genocide to me--and planned by Margaret Sanger. God bless all those involved in this witness.
