Thanks to the annual March for Life in Washington DC, many new young leaders for the pro-life movement will come forward. The march not only challenges society to recognize and protect the unborn, but it also renews and inspires those who do the marching. It was the march for Life in 1976, in which I participated as a high school senior, that sparked my interest in the pro-life movement, to which I have now devoted my life and ministry.
Of course, many of the marchers are motivated by the fact that they could have been aborted. As they speak up for the unborn, they are really speaking up for themselves. And we reaffirm that they are persons not because they are wanted, but because of the dignity they receive from their Creator
