pro-life march

Generation Life pilgrims lead the charge in proclaiming that “Love Saves Lives” at annual March for Life

Participants from the Generation Life stood together at the March for Life. Michael Throm from St. Joseph Imperial is on his eighth March and waved a Generation Life flag at the rally in Washington DC.

Kurt Hufker huddled with his friends on the National Mall as they eagerly awaited for the March for Life to begin.

This was the first march for Kurt, who was with his youth group from Assumption Parish in Mattese. Researching life issues on his own, Kurt knew that abortion is wrong, and he wanted to come to stand up for life.

"Life is the most important thing we have," said the junior at St. Mary's High School. "If you can't protect life, what is there left to protect?"

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.

WASHINGTON -- As the Jan. 22 anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision approached, the chairman of the U.S. bishops' Committee on Pro-Life Activities urged everyone concerned about "the tragedy of abortion" to recommit themselves to a "vision of life and love, a vision that excludes no one."
