Attention: Pro-Life materials available: We would like to provide your entire parish with Pro-life prayer cards and You Can Save Someones Life Today bulletin inserts, free of charge! This bulletin insert provides several ideas for how anyone can participate in the pro-life movement. The prayer cards, along with a video, are also available for buses going to the March for Life in DC or the Walk for Life in San Francisco.

anybody going and will be there any FR meet ups?
I’ll be listening on EWTN shortwave radio.
will be there any FR meet ups?
I'll be at the Mall at around noon. Just look for me. ;-)
Seriously, I'll be Twittering during it and uploading photos via Twitter @markomalley
I have a dental appointment. If the dumbhead organizers actually put it on the Roe anniversary, I could be there right now.
I mean, what in Heaven’s names makes the organizers think that the Supreme Court will listen to them, just because they put the march on a weekday (when, presumably, they’re in session)? Well, you know what Ron White said...
The Roe Anniversary is today (01/22). You would think the organizers would have the sense to do the march today, when fewer people have to go to work.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Thanks for the ping. I wish it were today too. I can’t take the time from work.

I know, they probably would get more than the 250K they already get. But, you know the story, the Supreme Court and the congressional office buildings are closed on the weekend and it’s been the tradition of the marchers to go in and visit and sign the guest books of their congressmen.

me too, I’ll be the one wearing a hat.
After VERY little sleep last night, we weren't looking forward to another 36 hours with a lot of travel, little sleep and a lot of walking, so we're going to have to bag it for this year. We'll see if we can find any coverage of it on the news tomorrow.
Yesterday in San Francisco.
back when they had the march starting in the ellipse, the FReepers would meet by a certain monument, I’ve met many over the years..
I bet they can double the amount of people if they had the march on the weekend, I guess next year it will be on Sunday. For some reason the March for Life org. wants everyone to go to their congressman’s office to sign the book.....Do the pro-abort congressmen really care, no they don’t, many are in solidly democrat districts and don’t care about who marches in the mfl...
And I bet if they have the march on a weekend, they would get more news coverage too...FOX gives them about 5 seconds per clip, that’s about it...
No, they’ll still do it on Monday next year (01/23/2012).
You got that right. Even if one bothers to look at the book, he probably would say, "Sheeeeeeeeiiit, there go those mother[NSFW] again!"
