March for Life

It was 35 years ago today, on January 22, 1973, that the Supreme Court made its landmark Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton decisions, legalizing abortion in this country through all 9 months of pregnancy. Since this day, over 44 million children have been killed... one third of this generation, your generation and mine (those 35 and younger) that were never given the chance to live. In remembrance of those lives that have been lost and to memorialize this infamous day, the March for Life has taken place every year in Washington, DC since 1974, pulling in over 200,000 pro-life advocates in past years.
Theme for March for Life January 22, 2008:
"Build Unity on the Life Principles throughout America.
No Exception! No Compromise!"

Starting at the Washington Memorial pro-lifers walk in remembrance of our unborn brothers and sisters peacefully and prayerfully through the streets of DC. The actual March begins at noon, with live coverage available starting at 11 am. I encourage you to join in the March for Life if in the DC area. If unable to do so, please offer a prayer today for all of those who have lost their lives because of the injustice of abortion in our country and for those taking a stand for life in Washington today... and remember today the great gift of life that YOU have been given.
