My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,
Each year, the Pro-Life movement comes together for the March for Life in Washington, D.C. This year, it was scheduled for Friday, Jan. 19. This annual event provides an opportunity for us to gather in our Nation’s capital and march down Constitution Avenue, ending at the Supreme Court, where the decision to make abortion legal in the United States has set a damaging path, reducing human life to a choice. It is unfortunate that there is a fundamental misunderstanding of the beginning of human life, its innate dignity and the possibility of terminating life.
Since becoming president of the March for Life, Jeanne Mancini, has expanded its Catholic base to promote inclusion and greater participation from pro-life advocates of all faiths, especially evangelicals.
