Yesterday I was able to join in the March for Life in Washington, a public witness to the sanctity of life, held annually to mark the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision on abortion. It was a joy to go on the bus from Truro Church, joining with their chapter of Anglicans for Life and folks from a number of our churches. I was heartened to see both in our group and throughout the Mall that more and more young people—young adults, teens and families with young children—are standing for life.
You are invited to participate with us in bearing witness to our conviction that all human life is created in God's own image and, as such, ought to be protected. The thirty-ninth March for Life will be held on January 23, 2012, from noon until 3:00 pm; this annual event commemorates the anniversary of the United States Supreme Court decision Roe v Wade which legalized abortion, the destruction of unborn children, throughout all fifty states and throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Since January 1973, at least 52 million children have lost their lives before they could even be born.
