Angel Wing Productions has received an overwhelming response from friends, pro-life volunteers, and local pro-life organizations. I have been asked to include in my documentary, a large pro-life event in Houston, Unite For Life, on October 23rd, so the word is out and by a pastor in Knoxville to shoot that segment of the second Pro-Life Freedom Ride. I have been asked to speak at churches and gatherings.

Review the following Priests For Life Interview, which took place before the Pro-Life Freedom Rides we shot in Birmingham and Atlanta.

Freedom Rider from Texas plans documentary film

When Susan Parker read about Priests for Life’s plans for Pro-Life Freedom Rides, she started emailing everyone she knows.“We need to get on board with this,” the member of the Silent No More Awareness Campaigntold her friends. “This is huge. We don’t get this kind of opportunity very often, to do something on a national scale like this.”A resident of Austin, Tex., Ms. Parker arranged her vacation to coincide with the first ride, from Birmingham to Atlanta, on July 24. She dragged out a film camera and planned to document the trip in still photos and journaling. But, she said, God had bigger plans. Through a local acquaintance who is a career journalist and documentarian, she saw the potential for a documentary film. “God has literally taken this and expanded it,” she said.

While discussing the trip with a videographer at a fundraiser, she was introduced to a photojournalist who “got the whole concept right away, of civil rights for unborn children.” The woman has become a mentor, and suggested she put an ad on Craigslist for a videographer – one who would agree to work for expenses and a copy. Fredrich Leight responded, describing himself as an involved Catholic and an independent filmmaker looking for new projects. He got on board, agreeing to work gratis if Ms. Parker paid his travel expenses and provides him a copy of the film.

Ms. Parker also started a blog, “susan4life” at WordPress.com to help document this unexpected but welcome journey she’s found herself on.

“God’s hand is in this whole thing,” Ms. Parker said. “Jesus has always had His hand on me. Now I have to speak out.”

Ms. Parker said she looks forward to meeting and interviewing Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, and Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“I loved Martin Luther King. He was one of my heroes,” she said. “I think he was a saint in teaching people passive non-resistance to evoke change.”

Raised in Kalamazoo, Mich., Ms. Parker lived in Chicago as a teenager and young adult. A self-described “activist in my liberal days,” she joined protests against the Vietnam War and was even tear-gassed a few times.

When she became pregnant at 23, “nobody told me I had any choice” except abortion. A woman my mother’s age whom I considered a friend told me I would have an abortion and offered no other option.“I didn’t know about its heartbeat or fingernails or its separate DNA or uniqueness. I didn’t know anything about my own value,” she said. She had other abortions later.

“I in the 1980s, I began to acknowledge the loss of my children and what I had done,” she recalled. Although she always “knew that Jesus was real and I loved him prayed and read the Bible,” over the years she found herself “walking in and out of churches looking for Him.” She was baptized in 1991 and sees the Pro-Life Freedom Rides as an important step in her journey as she approaches her 20th anniversary in the Church.

“I have a burden now to tell the truth,” she said. “I know I am forgiven and now I want to help. I want to educate people about the value of human life.  Innocent children are being murdered. Innocent babies are paying for promiscuity. They are paying for selfishness, and so are the women who are choosing abortion.”
