Pro life Freedom Ride coming to Knoxville
Protestants and Catholics, unite! Dr. Alveda King, a Baptist minister, and Fr. Frank Pavone, a Catholic priest, have long worked together to promote the Gospel of Life, a message of hope and healing, across racial and denominational lines. Fr. Pavone and Dr. King (niece of Dr. Martin Luther King) will be in Knoxville on Friday-Saturday, October 15-16, and I hope you will join us.
Friday night’s Worship Rally will be at 7 p.m. at the Tennessee Theater and Saturday’s Prayer Vigil will be at 9 a.m. at the Cherry Street Planned Parenthood Clinic.
There are three abortion clinics in Knoxville, including Planned Parenthood’s new clinic in East Knoxville. Nearly 4000 children are killed every year in these clinics. This does not include those killed by the RU-486 abortion pill and other forms of chemical abortion.
Nearly twenty years ago, pro-life leaders in Chattanooga rallied and prayed together. For their faithfulness, God closed the last abortion clinic in Chattanooga, turning that property into The National Memorial for the Unborn. Chattanooga remains the largest city in America without an abortion clinic or PP presence.
Let’s pray and work to make Knoxville the next one. For more information, visit www.ProLifeFreedomRides.com.
