Abortion survivor, former Planned Parenthood Director to headline Gainesville pro-life event

By AccessWDUN Staff

Free Chapel Worship Center is bringing two pro-life advocates to its Gainesville campus this weekend as part of an event to celebrate life.

The church announced this week that Abby Johnson, the former Planned Parenthood Director whose story is depicted in the recently-released movie "Unplanned," will be part of Saturday's Life is Beautiful event.

Gianna Jessen, who survived a saline abortion at 29.5 weeks according to her medical records, is a pro-life advocate who travels the United States and abroad sharing her story. Jessen will also speak with attendees.

In addition to hearing from Johnson and Jessen, attendees at the Life is Beautiful event on Saturday, will have the opportunity to witness the release of 3,000 butterflies. Organizers say the butterfly ceremony is a show of solidarity to the unborn and a symbol of healing for their mothers.

The event is Saturday, April 13 at 10 a.m. at the church's Gainesville campus on McEver Road. Free childcare is available. Follow this link to find out more.
