Pro Life in Knoxville | Witness against Planned Parenthood
Last week, the Pro-Life Coalition of East Tennessee (ProCET) organized a protest at a Planned Parenthood (PP) fundraiser in Knoxville. About 30 people came to peacefully witness against baby killing.
The Tomato Head restaurant was closed to everyone but PP, and probably 20 or 30 people attended their event. It was mostly an older crowd. Our ProCET group was much more diverse, ranging in age from 7 to 70.
A few of us held the CBR “Choice” signs, and passersby studied them very intently. Several people thanked us for being there, which we appreciated.
One man, probably in his mid to late 30’s, told us that many years ago he had gotten a girl pregnant. She had aborted without his consent. It was devastating; he even ended up on the streets for a while. He still misses that child. He said he was grateful for our presence and he and his friend encouraged us to “Keep it up!”
We are very grateful to Paul Simoneau and Lisa Morris of ProCET for organizing this and many other pro-life efforts in Knoxville.
What do you think? Please comment!
