Cleaning up Alabama’s back alley

Cradle My Heart Radio was there with The Selma Project for Life marching to shut down an illegal abortion operation

In June 2015 Catherine Davis led The Selma Project for Life–a rally and march across Pettus Bridge to issue a call for state and local governments to enforce civil and criminal laws against abortionists.

The failure of authorities to uphold the law in Pennsylvania resulted in the notorious Kermit Gosnell case, and many others like him were exposed  to protect women from the illegal dangerous actions of abortion providers across the US.

Davis notes that public health statistics prove abortion is disproportionately impacting women of color, and most especially black women. Alabama is home to Samuel Lett who alledgedly operated his abortion center outside the legal rules for such centers in that state. When the State of Alabama disagreed with investigative findings, the march was on.

In addition to Catherine Davis, The Selma Project speakers included Alveda King, Star Parker, Dr. Freda Bush, Ryan Bomberger, Charmaine Yoest, and others. Event sponsors include CEC for Life, National Black Pro-life Coalition, and The Radiance Foundation.

I was both humbled and proud to join the march. I was also changed–by the prayer leading up to the March, by the spiritual warfare surrounding the events that weekend, and by the decision to suspend all actions and wait as soon as the march ended. To see God move to bring about the desired end a short six months later is a dramatic and compelling story of faith in action you don’t want to miss.
