More than 250 people gathered Wednesday to remember murdered pro-life activist James Pouillon as man committed to his faith and the pro-life movement.
"You may not have agreed with his tactics or his methods. But you could not - not - miss his commitment or his passion," Pastor David Knox of Abba's House church said. "Jim shouted to the world what he was living for."
Pouillon was shot multiple times while protesting abortion outside a high school in Owosso,Mich., Sept. 11. Police have charged Harlan Drake, 33, with the murder.
Pouillon's daughter said Wednesday's memorial was all about her father, but about protecting the lives of the un-born.
"I want him to be remembered as a man who loved Jesus and who was forgiven. All signs point to Heaven," she said. "He can take a man who had a past like my daddy and bring him around and use him for good."
"It's not about my dad," she continued. "It's about the cause and it's about Christ."
Pouillon was carrying signs with pictures of aborted babies, as he usually does during his protests, when he was shot.
Prosecutors say Blake didn't think students should see those images and claim that was the motive for the shooting.
