Local marches show strong pro-life witness

Walkers participated Saturday in a march for life and rally hosted by the middle school ministry at St. Alban Roe School. The crown marched from the school down Missouri Route 109 to Wildwood City Hall for a rally that included an address from Mayor Jim Bowlin.

For about a half-hour on either side of noon Jan. 20, students and parishioners from St. Alban Roe Parish and School bore powerful witness to the pro-life movement.

About 200 people — 30 students in the middle-school youth ministry joined by roughly 170 parishioners of all ages, from babies to seniors — marched on the bike path along Highways 109 and 100, chanting, singing and carrying signs.

Planned Parenthood protest makes concrete the meaning of the March for Life

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Yoi Reyes believes that her son should not have to pay for a crime that was committed by another.

Years ago as a teenager, Reyes was raped by her stepfather in her native Cuba. The first time, at 13, she was forced to have an abortion. The second time, the baby was too far along, and the doctor refused to do the abortion. Her son Pedro, now 27, welcomed his first child into the world on Thanksgiving Day.
