The Symbolism Behind the Freedom Rides






In nineteen sixty one, civil rights activists held Freedom Rides to oppose segregation. The rides increased visibility and participation in the cause.

Now, to fight the injustice of abortion, pro-life activists will hold Freedom Rides for the unborn. These rides, led by Priests for Life and Dr. Alveda King, will symbolize the fact that all the varied activity of the pro-life movement can be summarized by the theme of freedom. Pro-life education frees people from ignorance; pregnancy centers and healing ministries free them from despair; legislative and political action frees them from unjust laws.

The first ride is this weekend, from Birmingham to Atlanta. Along with the rides, there are activities everyone can do locally. Find out more at priestsforlife.org.
