March 4 Life
You all know that I am passionate about the Pro-Life movement. Well yesterday was the annual March 4 Life in Washington D.C and in Los Angeles, CA. This walk is to make people aware of how important this movement is to our society and the world. We as pro-lifers are trying to create a culture of life and to show that there are other options out there than abortion. It was created as a non-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian organization.
It was started in October of 1973 when grassroots Pro-Lifers became concerned that come January 22, 1974 might just come and go with out having the Supreme Courts decision about abortion properly memorialized or redressed. At the time, no established right-to-life organization was prepared to undertake the planning, financial and operational responsibilities for a high impact prolife March on the U.S. Capitol. But, grassroots prolifers wanted to march! About thirty prolife veterans resolved themselves into a committee and began making plans for the first March for Life.
Since that first march on January 22, 1974 with 20,000 people, the number have only continued to grow. They have reached an estimated 250, 000. I have a feeling that those numbers are only going to continue to increase. Sadly I have never been able to attend the March 4 Life, but I am already planning on going next year with a group of friends.
Hope all is well and if anyone would like more information, please feel free to send me a message or go to this link March 4 Life
