are here to launch a movement within the
greater prolife movement, a movement of Freedom Rides
for the Unborn,” Fr. Pavone said during
the morning press conference. "Like the
Freedom Rides of five decades ago, these
freedom rides symbolize the principle of the greater
movement of which they are part, namely, that
justice and equal protection of human rights belong to
each and every human being, regardless of size or age
or any other condition." A host of civil rights and
pro-life leaders from across the country stood

a concert and rally July 23 at the
Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Center and then board
the bus bound for Atlanta. Dozens of rides in all
parts of the country could be scheduled over the next
year, according to Fr. Pavone.”
