  • N.Y. Times Wrote Up Four Immigration Protesters, All But Ignored Tens of Thousands Against Abortion

    As the new year began, The New York Times offered a 780-word article to a protest for illegal immigrants – with four marchers walking from Miami to Washington. But on Saturday, tens of thousands of Americans gathering in Washington for Friday's annual March for Life received – part of a sentence. In the Saturday paper on January 23, an article on the trial facing the killer of late-term abortionist George Tiller on page A-11 featured this note in paragraph 9 of a 12-paragraph dispatch by Monica Davey: Testimony began the same day that abortion rights groups celebrated, and abortion opponents...

    | The year 2010 may see the most tumultuous congressional elections since 1994. One of the key players will be Marjorie Dannenfelser, president and chairman of the board of the Susan B. Anthony List, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, 280,000-member organization with an attached political action committee that helps pro-life women to run for political office. Q: How did you become pro-life? I grew up in North Carolina in an Episcopalian family, very strongly pro-choice. I was co-chair of the College Republicans at Duke University because they wanted balance: Balance meant you had to have a pro-choice and a pro-life chair. So...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Outside the U.S. Supreme Court, speakers blared with the frantic strums of guitars and the voices of four young men singing gospel songs — rock and roll style. Donning shaggy beards and seated on a makeshift stage, the four were among thousands of pro-life Christian activists protesting the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion. Out on the streets, a small band of Yale students led a different chant. Glory, glory, hallelujah! In the beauty of the lilies, Christ was born across the sea,” the Yalies’ voices sang in harmony,...

    Every year on January 22 citizens across the nation March for Life in Washington D.C. to protest the 1973 decision of the US Supreme Court that legalized abortion on demand. And every year the media treats the story as insignificant. Just imagine if 300,000 people coalesced in Washington D.C. to protest so-called global warming, the amount of exposure they would have received. Even the much acclaimed “fair & balanced” FOX news channel could barely muster the word “thousands” when reporting on the volume of the March (the reality is hundreds of thousands of people attended). The only cable television channel...
  • Less Choice, More Murder

    Again, this January 22, hundreds of thousands of pro-life Americans will converge on Washington for the March for Life. The March has taken place every year since 1974 to protest the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision on January 22, 1973, which legalized abortion. Good news for pro-lifers is that 2009 showed evidence of turnaround in national sentiment toward tolerance for abortion. Two Gallup polls, one done in May and one done in August, showed higher percentages identifying as "pro-life" than "pro-choice." The opposite had been true in all previous years since Gallup first started doing this survey in 1995....

    Dennis Howard told EWTN television network on the day of the March for Life in Washington, D.C. that legalized abortion is the equivalent of 260 Haiti disasters on American soil. The death toll from abortion in the U.S. is over 52 million. One of the differences is that Haiti is the result of a natural disaster. Abortion is man-made. Another difference is that we search for the victims in Haiti and rush assistance to those injured from the earthquake. The victims of abortion are not worthy of sympathy or attention because they are the product of a "woman's right to...

January is a tough month to schedule a march in Washington, but every year hundreds of thousands of everyday Americans from across our nation brave the cold weather on the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision to bear a positive witness to the culture of life.

See for yourself the witness of tens of thousands of young people who participate in the March for Life every year and promise that a tidal wave of life is coming to the voters' booth soon. Respect for life is the primary moral issue of our age and those who fail to defend it must answer to God.

    The Washington Post (Metro Section) ^ | January 24, 2010 | Robert McCartney
    I went to the March for Life rally Friday on the Mall expecting to write about its irrelevance...How wrong I was. The antiabortion movement feels it's gaining strength, even if it's not yet ready to predict ultimate triumph, and Roe supporters (including me) are justifiably nervous. As always, we in Washington enjoy an up-close view of the health of various causes because of the city's role as the nation's most important setting for political demonstrations. In this case, I was especially struck by the large number of young people among the tens of thousands at the march. It suggests that...

    Washington, DC ( -- The pro-life movement has a rich history of focusing not just on the death of an unborn child in an abortion but on the pain and regret millions of women fell following an abortion. Some of those women who wish they could undo their abortion decision and choose life will speak out again at this year's March for Life. Members of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, a network of men and women harmed by abortion, will give their personal abortion testimonies at Thursday's event.They will join the hundreds of thousands of marchers in the...

    Hundreds of thousands of people are gathered in the nation's capital today to mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and protest abortion in the annual March for Life. Gathering from all over the country, protesters of all ages first heard from prominent pro-life, political and religious leaders before beginning the march. Congressman Chris Smith (R-N.J.) was among the politicians who addressed the crowd on Friday, saying, “Thank you one and all for being an important part of the greatest human rights struggle on earth – the right to life movement. By the grace of God, we stand behind, with...

    Monday, January 25, 2010 Pro-lifers—young, old, and in-between—march, confusing reporters. Some 22,000-35,000 folks (estimates vary rather widely) took part in Walk for Life West Coast 2010, and the March's website has a bunch of great photos taken by Maureen & Jim McKenzie of the Walk for Life West Coast Media Team. Jill Stanek has also posted some pics and videos.The San Francisco Chronicle offered this interesting theory about the largely turn-out: "Emboldened by recent shifts in the political landscape, several thousand anti-abortion activists rallied in San Francisco on Saturday in a march that stretched from the Ferry Building almost to...

    Almost 400 students will participate in this year’s national March for Life Friday in Washington, D.C. — doubling last year’s participation. The Notre Dame Right to Life Club sends students to the nation’s capital every year to march in the annual pro-life rally, the group’s co-vice president Mary Daly, a senior, said. But this year, for the first time, University President Fr. John Jenkins will join the marchers. Jenkins created a pro-life task force in September to “broaden and deepen the pro-life culture” at Notre Dame to help “strengthen the Notre Dame community’s witness to Catholic teaching on life.” One...

    by Dave Jolivet FALL RIVER, Mass. (CNS) -- Boston Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley once said some consider Nellie J. Gray the "(Rev.) Martin Luther King Jr. of the pro-life civil rights movement." "But to me," he added, "she's ... the Joan of Arc of the Gospel of life." There are many other words to describe this 84-year-old champion of the unborn, but none are more accurate than "mother of the March for Life." For more than 35 years, Texas native Nellie J. Gray has been working unceasingly to end the slaughter of unborn children in the United States. And like...

    As usual, ABC, CBS, and NBC ignored Friday’s March for Life protest. (Even the Associated Press skipped over the tens of thousands marching.) But the PBS NewsHour at least offered a brief from news anchor Hari Sreenivasan: Thousands rallied in Washington in the annual March For Life. It was the 37th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion. The anti-abortion crowd rallied at the White House, and then moved on to the Supreme Court. A handful of abortion rights supporters were also present. NPR covered the trial on the murder of late-term abortionist George...
