Selma, AL - Project Selma will hold a prayer rally tonight, June 19, 2015, with a march Saturday morning across the historic Edmund Pettus Bridge to protest an illegal abortion clinic currently operated in Selma by Samuel C. Lett. This clinic targets women of the Black community for abortions.
Project Selma is a coalition of leaders includes many prominent members of the black community, including Catherine Davis, Alveda King, Star Parker and others.
Declaring that #blackwomenmatter, these and other pro-life leaders will hold a prayer rally Friday night at 7:00 PM at Christ the King Cathedral, followed by a Saturday morning march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge at 9:00 AM.
All leaders will be available for comment at the 9:30 AM press conference directly after the march.
Operation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger sent a written statement to be read at tonight's rally that discusses documented evidence of criminal conduct that is rampant throughout the abortion cartel, with Black women bearing the brunt of the abuse.
The timing of the event is significant. June 19 is a holiday known as "Juneteenth," which celebrates the end of slavery in America. Fifty years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a famous Civil Rights march across the Edmund Pettis Bridge where 600 men and women were attacked by police with billy clubs and tear gas and driven back into Selma.
Operation Rescue, CEC for Life, and Life Legal Foundation teamed up to document illegal abortions taking place at Lett's Central Alabama Women's Clinic.
