PRO-LIFE WALK EXPECTED TO DRAW INCREASED NUMBERS

What each of us looked like, 8 weeks after our conception.

by Sharon Rondeau

(Jan. 19, 2010) — This Friday, January 22, 2010, the 37th annual March for Life will take place in Washington, DC, sponsored by the March for Life organization, which has sponsored the event every year since 1974.

Incorporated as a “non-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian organization,” the group bases its activities on “Life Principles,” which begin with “We hold these truths to be self-evident:  That all human beings are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among which is the right to life,…”  There are nine Life Principles in all.

The first March for Life drew about 20,000 people, with 200,000+ attending in the years 2003-2007.  According to their website, “These growing numbers give testimony to the increasing ranks of prolife Americans and to the importance of the March’s work.”

The march is preceded by a convention on Thursday, January 21, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Capitol Hill, and concludes with the “Rose Dinner” on Friday evening at 7:00 p.m.

At noon on Friday, participants will begin their trek at the Mall & 7th Street, proceeding along Constitution Avenue and up Capitol Hill, stopping at the Supreme Court and Congress.  Each participant is encouraged to visit the office of his or her congressman and senators to “overturn Roe v. Wade on behalf of the innocent preborn boys and girls…”

Professor Robert George, co-author of The Manhattan Declaration, will be the keynote speaker at the Rose Dinner.  Dr. George is McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Founder and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University.  In December 2008, Professor George received the Presidential Citizens Medal, one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a civilian by the United States.

Sign from the 2009 March for Life

Members of Congress who spoke at last year’s March for Life included Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI), Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH), Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA), and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN).

For those who cannot make it to Washington, online participation is available at the Virtual March for Life.   As of today, 25,567 people have signed up for the Virtual March.

The Sunday following the March for Life has been designated as “Sanctity of Life Sunday” by many churches across the country.  PersonhoodUSA is reporting that this year, pastors will be encouraging their congregations to sign Personhood petitions in Montana, Colorado, Mississippi, Florida and California, where state ballot personhood initiatives have been initiated.  Those in Colorado and Mississippi “are getting close to having enough signatures to put personhood amendments on the ballot.”

PersonhoodUSA, founded in November 2008 by Cal Zastrow and Keith Mason, is active in 40 states and will have representatives at the March for Life on Friday.  Its primary mission is “to serve Jesus by being an Advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves, the pre-born child.”

  1. Great bit of writing Sharon, it goes a long way to lending clear evidence of the brain washing of us American people. Proof positive of the demented doctrine of deviants who believe they are endowed with privilege and hieratic position which allows them to treat our most cherished values and principles like a play thing.

    Sanctioned murder, destruction of love and tenderness for the vulnerable beings from our very blood and flesh, little souls nurtured within the temple of our spirit. How utterly evil to usurp the wonder and glory of life’s creation, this evil attacks the very basis of God, in every little being resides the seed of life and soul. To undermine through subversive social engineering the connection between mother, God and new spirit of life is genocide disguised as free choice and state sanctioned right to destroy a living entity known as a baby in a woman’s womb. Slaughter and destruction of life and values no less. Instilling the principles of life as sacrosanct in hearts of many will create a collective sense of worth and principles that will grow exponentially by its very nature. How can it not, preserving life is the root of Liberty, Freedom and inherent sense of Self Determination our founders established under God.

  2. Black Genocide

    The purpose of this web site is to expose the disproportionate amount of Black babies destroyed by the abortion industry. For every two African American women that get pregnant one will choose to abort.
    A Black baby is 5 times more likely to be killed in the womb than a White Baby.

    Statistics from The Alan Guttmaucher Institute

    “Frankly I had thought that at that time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”

    7/2/09 Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    The most dangerous place for an African American to be is in the womb of their African American mother.

    Mr. Charlton replies: If Obama was a true savior to the Black race, he’d certainly not be promoting the one thing which is killing so many of them.
