"Didnít think Iíd live long enough to see this happen" ( San Diego Pro-Life Rally )
California Catholic Daily ^ | May 20, 2009 | staff

A crowd estimated at between 300 and 1100 people gathered on Sunday, May 17, outside the San Diego County Administration Building for a “Choose Life!” rally. The rally was scheduled to coincide with President Barack Obama’s commencement speech at Notre Dame University. Event organizers said the official crowd estimate by San Diego police was 1100.

Speakers included the Rev. Walter Hoye, a Baptist minister who was jailed for violating Oakland’s so-called “bubble ordinance,” and UCLA student Lila Rose, who has spearheaded a series of undercover investigations that have exposed Planned Parenthood cover-ups of statutory rape laws in various states across the country. Pastor Jim Garlow of Skyline Church, who helped organize the event, Pastor David Jeremiah of Shadow Mountain Community Church and Host of The Turning Point, Pastor Mike MacIntosh of Horizon Christian Fellowship, Pastor Shawn Mitchell of New Venture Christian Fellowship, and Pastor Chris Clark of East Clairemont Southern Baptist Church were also featured speakers at the event.

Among the notable Catholics participating in the rally were Thomas McKenna of Catholic Action for Faith and Family, attorney Chuck Limandri, West Coast director of the Thomas More Law Center, Dr. George Delgado of Culture of Life Family Services, Leslie Brunolli, San Diego coordinator of Silent No More, and Fr. Nabil Mouaness of St. Ephrem Church in El Cajon.

“This event was the answer to about 20 years of praying that these men, leaders in the San Diego faith community, would engage the culture and stand in defense of the pre-born,” said Operation Rescue spokeswoman Cheryl Sullenger, who led pro-life activism in the San Diego area for two decades before leaving to work with Operation Rescue at its national headquarters in Kansas. “I didn’t think I’d live long enough to see this happen.”

I saw a poll the other day re: the Pro-Life Pro-Choice movements and how the numbers are gaining significantly for Pro-Life. Anybody know where I saw that — point me if you can?

The prayers and protests to stop the evil are working —
good will always triumph over evil.

In his arrogance, the Great Uniter came to divide the Catholic Faithful on a Catholic campus dedicated to Our Lady but I think after his Sermon for Abortion on Demand delivered in lecture form no less to both the faculty, parents and students -— he forgot to realize that the entire country was watching.

He just may have wakened a sleeping tiger!! Those of us who prefer The Sermon on the Mount!!
