Students for Life of Southeast Tennessee, a student coalition from across the Tennessee Valley, is holding a student-led rally on January 23 at 2 PM at Coolidge Park in Chattanooga.
William Reynolds, President of the group, said, “Our purpose is twofold: First, to organize and galvanize the pro-life students in our area and second to send a message to Planned Parenthood that they are not wanted in our schools and in our communities.”
The event will feature speakers, prayers from local clergymen, and a time to network.
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, has hired two staff for the Chattanooga area; a community organizer and a health education coordinator.
“Of particular concern is this idea of a health education coordinator, whose job is to promote Planned Parenthood’s disastrous sexual education program. This program is designed to promote abortion, rather than encouraging a culture where life is celebrated.” says Reynolds.
Although Planned Parenthood’s curriculum is officially banned in Tennessee, the group says that it has concerns about other ways that the curriculum could find its way into HCS classrooms.
“Our goal is to organize and fight back together. We are Christians, non-Christians, Catholics and Protestants who are all in lockstep on this important issue,” the group states.
Those who wish to participate in the rally are invited to attend on January 23rd. The event will be held at Coolidge Park at 2 PM Eastern time.
Organizers ask that participants bring their own signs, however any offensive or graphic images will be removed. The group also asks that this be a student-only event. For more information, contact SFL at: firstname.lastname@example.org
