A number of Christians gathered in Tennessee to block the doors of an abortion facility as they sung hymns in order to “rescue” children from death—an effort that was met by police with road closures, a shelter-in-place order, as well as arrests.
The effort was organized in part by Chet Gallagher outside of the doors of careafem, a surgical abortion facility in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. Gallagher reported on his Facebook page that “[m]ultiple women have turned away. Counselors spread out ready to love on and help them.”
“Another mom decided she didn’t want go through with killing her child…,” he also posted.
Gallagher, who is a former Las Vegas police officer that was arrested in the 80’s for joining those rescuing outside an abortion facility in the city at the time, has been active in opposing the abortion holocaust since.
In May of last year, a federal judge ruled that Mt. Juliet’s zoning ordinances, which prohibited surgical abortions at its facility, placed an “undue burden” and “substantial obstacle” on women wanting to end the lives of their babies after careafem sued with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of Tennessee and a law firm on behalf of the entity against the city.
Mt. Juliet’s city commission later revoked the legislation that placed limits on surgical abortions in industrial zones.
The Mt. Juliet Police Department posted what they called a “severe alert” on their Twitter page: “Multiple people have unlawfully trespassed and are refusing to leave the Providence Medical Pavilion building. Those in the building, who are not unlawfully trespassing, have been asked to shelter-in-place. Roadways are closed near the building.”
Police arrested a number of those blocking the doors for refusing to leave, including Eva Edl, a Nazi concentration camp survivor, who was in a wheelchair and there to save children from the modern-day holocaust.
In a 2018 video by Love Life, Edl stated that during World War II at 9 years old she was “shipped in a cattle car to a death camp to be exterminated.”
“I wish that good people would have placed their bodies across those train train tracks and pleaded for our lives. Yes, church bells were ringing in nearby towns, but Christians were too afraid to take action,” Edl stated in the video. “I know, if only few had done so, they would have been crushed and demonized. But, if thousands had run to the scene, they could have shifted the culture,” she continued.
“Abortion clinics are America’s death camps. Please go there to pray, to plead for the lives of unborn babies and to give help to women in need,” Edl exhorted.
According to a press briefing by police, eight adults were arrested and charged with “trespassing” with four of the adults also being charged with “contributing to a delinquency of a minor.” Four minors involved were issued juvenile citations. The adults were taken to the Wilson County jail for processing.
“They were peaceful and cooperative inside,” Captain Tyler Chandler stated during the press conference. “All peaceful during those moments of arrest,” he added.
The term “rescue” is derived from the Bible’s teaching in Proverbs 24:11-12, “If thou forbear to deliver [rescue] them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?”

The Mt. Juliet Police Department did not address the violence against children in the womb and murders that have been taking place at the facility during the press conference, but rather focused on why they decided to charge those peacefully gathered with “unlawful trespassing” as they interposed on behalf of the unborn to protect them from harm.
