Save Our Children - Standing For Life Rally in Charlotte This Saturday
With Planned Parenthood opening a new abortion facility in Charlotte, we want to continue supporting those who are mobilizing The Church to take a stand against not only the organization, but also the influence that Planned Parenthood proliferates.
There is no question that Planned Parenthood targets minority groups, especially the African American community and is now operating out of it's new facility in the historic Cherry Neighborhood. Saturday's event is designed to encourage the people of Charlotte to reject the expansion of Planned Parenthood and to promote a culture of life to assist families in need.
"This rally and march is a statement to the abortion industry that we will not be silent to the destruction of abortion in our community and we are preparing our African-American daughters to side with the God of the Bible and Choose Life!" said event organizer Lesley Monet.
The rally and march will include the participation of churches and ministry organizations in the region, beginning at 1509 Baxter Street and ending with a time of prayer at the Planned Parenthood facility.
This is a battle of light and darkness. As believers, we are called not simply to expose darkness, but to enter into the darkness to actively serve and support the least of these (Matthew 25:40). That includes not just the unborn but those in our community in need. Many women who become pregnant do not want to abort their babies but simply feel that is their only choice. The Church must be willing to enter into these hard spaces and provide support, resources and hope to families in need.
Full details on the Save Our Children Rally below. Our weekly Love Life Prayer Walk will continue as scheduled in Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh from 9AM to 11AM.
