From the Sidelines

I’m a friend of and part of Susan Parker’s support and am maintaining her blog while she is in a whirlwind of preparations. She has been in pre-production for making a pro-life documentary for the last two weeks.This first segment is focused on the historic Pro-Life Freedom Ride taking place in Birmingham, Alabama this weekend.

The pre-born are the only entire class of people in the United States who are denied their unalienable right to life promised by the US Declaration of Independence. Abortion, government approved since the 1970’s, is an outright violation of the civil rights of more than one million pre-born people in this country every year. It is sanctioned murder!

To underscore that point, the Freedom Rides are borrowing a tactic from the civil rights movement of the 1960s. This first Pro-Life Freedom Ride from Birmingham to Atlanta will take place this Saturday. Susan hopes to have interviews with with Father Pavone, Dr.Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King and other notable African American leaders and pro-life activists.

More than a symbolic bus ride, this Freedom Ride is a peaceful and prayerful, visible expression of the commitment of people around the country to work for the rights of the unborn.

After a rally at the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Center on Friday evening, the Freedom Riders, will leave Caldwell Park Saturday after praying at the Planned Parenthood close by, for the 2 1/2 hour caravan ride to Atlanta where a prayer service will take place with Fr. Frank Pavone and Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King and Director of African American outreach of Priests For Life. Prominent African American leaders will be marching and speaking as well,and there will be a wreath laying at the tomb of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.at his memorial in Atlanta.

For the weekend schedule of events, check out the previous blog entry entitled “Because the Unborn are Precious in God’s Eyes”.

If you have been reading previous entries, it is obvious our Almighty God continues to move to make this happen.

This is an ongoing project which will require many months and hours of filming, travel and editing.There are many good causes to contribute to. This is a very important one and will be used to further the cause of unborn persons. Be a part!
