THE ANNUAL SAV-A-LIFE FUNDRAISING BANQUET
Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 7 p.m.
Frazer Memorial UMC - Wesley Hall
Guest Speaker: Abby Johnson
To help Abby feel at home we will be having barbeque and wearing our western casual attire.
Our guest speaker is Abby Johnson, former Executive Director of Planned Parenthood, America’s leading abortion provider, in College Station, Texas. She recently published a book, unPLANNED. Abby shares her story of when she was asked to hold the ultrasound probe for an ultrasound-guided-abortion and to her surprise saw the perfect profile of a baby. “Just like Grace at twelve weeks” she thought, remembering when she first had a peek at her daughter three years before. Then quickly that life was taken from the womb. Our 2012 Banquet speaker, Shawn Carney, literally helped to pray her our of Planned Parenthood. Make plans now to hear her incredible story.
