I am deeply disturbed that a single woman is attempting to dictate who can and cannot declare him or herself a pro-lifer. Banners abound at the march for every sort of cause, including the "ex-gay" movement. The PLAGAL people are very sincere pro-lifers who take a beating in the gay community for their public stance (at Pride rallies, for instance, where abortion-rights people come out in force). For them to be turned away from the March for Life is outrageous and self-defeating.
I don't support the "Paramount Human Life Amendment" or any Constitutional amendment regarding abortion, because to do so is to accept that Roe v. Wade was an interpretation of the Constitutional text as it now stands. There is, of course, no basis in the Constitution for a liberty to kill babies. Thus, the proper answer to Roe is for Congress to remove abortion from the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, and for the Governors to defy the Supreme Court, to nullify Roe and all the other decisions that assert a right to kill babies.
Nellie Gray does the pro-life effort a huge disservice, year after year, by excluding the very good people of PLAGAL. She is a disgrace to the cause and should step down immediately.
Wide ranging and unexpected voices such as those of PLAGAL, Pro-life atheists, Vegetarians for Life Feminists for Life strengthen and enrich the anti-abortion message in ways that all the Bible quoting in the world cannot.
Ms. Gray has been holding the annual March for Life hostage for too long.
