This month many of you will march for life, in Washington DC and in your own towns and cities. The day will come when Roe v Wade will be overturned. The Court could say that the people can decide whether abortion should be legal in their own state. But the Court could also rule that the unborn child must be protected as a person under the 14th Amendment, just like the born must be protected. The Roe v Wade decision itself admits that if the unborn child can be shown to be a person, abortion cannot be legal at all.
Reversal of this disastrous decision remains a key goal for which the Church and the pro-life movement continue to work and pray. As pro-life people march this month in various events, let’s renew our commitment to that goal.
May I extend to you a personal invitation to join me for the Annual March for Life in Washington DC on January 22? On the morning of the March, I will lead and preach at a memorial service at 8 am in the United States Senate and present a pro-life award to outstanding leaders. This is the premier indoor pro-life event on Capitol Hill. Admission is free.
Then, after the March, I will gather at 4pm at the Supreme Court with the women and men of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. Those hurt by abortion will share their testimonies. Please come to show them your spiritual support and gratitude for exposing the damage abortion does.
You can get more information about both events by visiting priestsforlife.org.
At the March for Life in Washington, DC, women who have had abortions lead the way. As they march they carry signs that say “I Regret My Abortion.” This Silent No More Awareness Campaign brings to the March a renewed emphasis on the fact that the pro-abortion movement is wrong, not only when they deny the humanity of the child, but also when they claim that abortion helps the mother.
Then, in the late afternoon, these mothers gather at the steps of the Supreme Court, and share their testimonies one by one. Fathers of aborted babies are also there, with signs that said, “I Regret Lost Fatherhood.”
If you have lost a child to abortion, we want to hear from you. Visit priestsforlife.org, and join our efforts.
