Two showings of the adoption documentary I Lived on Parker Avenue have been planned in November in the greater New Orleans area.
On Monday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. the documentary will be shown at St. Edwards the Confessor church, 4921 W. Metairie Ave., Metairie. Louisiana Right to Life team member Sarah Zagorski will present the film and moderate a Q&A session afterwards.
On Sunday, Nov. 11 at 6:15 p.m., a special outdoor screening of the documentary will be be held in the pavilion at St. Peter’s School (130 E. Temperance St.) in Covington. The address for St. Peter School is 130 E. Temperance St. in downtown Covington, and the school pavilion located one block behind the school address on S. Thread St. between E. Temperance St. and E. 20th Ave. This showing is sponsored by St. Peter Catholic Church. A Q&A will be moderated by Susan Scotton (the mother in the film) and Producer Benjamin Clapper. Bring lawn chairs and blankets! If it rains, the film will be shown in St. Mary’s Hall. Free childcare will be provided.
I Lived on Parker Avenue documents Louisiana student David Scotton’s journey to meet his birth parents for the first time and also shares the story of David’s birth mother, Melissa Coles, as she recounts her visit to an Indianapolis abortion facility when she was pregnant with David.
The documentary, produced by Joie De Vivre Media, was released on March 8 and was featured on Fox and Friends earlier this year. The film has already been viewed by thousands across the country.
I Lived on Parker Avenue powerfully promotes adoption as a life-giving alternative to abortion. Unfortunately, there are only two adoptions for every 100 abortions performed in the United States, showing us that adoption efforts need more support.
Please invite your family and friends!
