  • Over 200,000 Poles join marches for life across nation to support abortion ban

    05/18/2016 1:11:23 PM PDT · by MNDude · 8 replies
    WARSAW, Poland, May 17, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-life advocates held over 140 marches across Poland on Sunday, with participants totalling somewhere between 200,000-300,000 despite bad weather in some cities. The Center for the Support of Family and Life Initiatives has coordinated the events since 2006 on May 15, a pro-life feast in Poland. A local committee with representatives from social and church organizations organizes each march. Some marches took place before May 15, and others will happen in June. The march’s theme was “Every life is priceless,” a reminder of the value of every life, most specifically that of the...

    Whether or not Planned Parenthood and the mainstream media ignore them, there will ALWAYS be busloads of students ready to head to March for Life protests, even when getting back home means getting through the generation’s worst blizzard. Miracle searchers don’t have to delve into the long ago past searching for miracles from Above. They only have to go back to Sunday past when a ‘Miracle in the Snow’ proved that not even the worst blizzard of a generation can blow out the candle of faith. With high winds driving 30 and more inches of snow, Winter Storm ‘Jonah’ blew...

    Stranded on buses overnight by a monster snowstorm that has shut down parts of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, hundreds of Catholic high school students from Nebraska and elsewhere nevertheless seemed to have things relatively in hand this afternoon. Returning from Washington D.C., where they took part Friday in the annual March for Life, they at least had food and water on board, said Tim McNeil, chancellor of the Archdiocese of Omaha. A nearby maintenance building gave them access to bathrooms. And while there was nothing resembling a chapel anywhere near the cars, buses and trucks stopped westbound between the Bedford and...

    Numerous pro-life speakers championed the interests of expectant mothers and the unborn as they emphasized the priceless value of human life at a variety of venues before the 2016 March for Life. The march drew tens of thousands of supporters to Washington, D.C., despite an approaching blizzard.The march took place on January 22, the 43th anniversary of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe vs. Wade that legalized abortion throughout the United States. Since then, more than 58.6 million legal abortions have taken place in a country that has a current population of 322.87 million people.As a result, the equivalent of one...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The rain didn’t deter thousands of pro-life supporters at the annual March for Life, in San Francisco on Saturday. The group marched and rallied outside City Hall. “We believe in showing the world that there’s this vast number of people her supporting this cause,” said Sebastian Lemmon. The late Martin Luther King’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, led the opening prayer. This year’s march comes on the heels of a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood over videos that claim to show staffers negotiating prices for aborted fetal tissue.

    March for Life organizers had pledged that neither a blizzard forecast nor icy cold temperatures would keep them from descending on the nation’s capital Friday for the annual pro-life event - but returning home is proving to be a more difficult task. A massive winter storm that rolled through the mid-atlantic and Northeast Friday night has reportedly left busloads of march participants stuck on the side of major highways. Six buses carrying a group of 330 students and chaperons who traveled to the District of Columbia from Omaha, Nebraska have been stuck on the Pennsylvania turnpike for 11 hours due...

While Democrats Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton continue to defend the horrors of abortion, Republicans Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, and Ben Carson took to social media. Recognizing the tragedy of over 58 million lives lost, these candidates explained why they stand for life. Donald Trump, however, has been silent on abortion, the March for Life, and Roe v.

    Thanks to a massive snowstorm threatening to dump at least two feet of snow on the nation’s capital, the March for Life did not break any attendance records this year, but the tens of thousands of pro-life people who braved the cold and snow proudly stood for life. While marchers mourned 43 years of legalized abortion, many sounded a hopeful theme for a pro-life future and think the decision will eventually be reversed. The Roe v. Wade decision, handed down on January 22, 1973, overturned pro-life laws offering protection for unborn children in most states across the country, and made...

    Thousands of Americans – including at least one Hollywood superstar and a barefoot monk – braved the cold and snow Friday to join the 2016 March for Life in Washington on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion. Throngs of pro-lifers turned out, despite weather forecasts predicting a blizzard and three feet of snow. The crowds weren’t quite as large as they’ve been in previous years, as many bus routes had been canceled due to inclement weather. One pro-lifer captured a photo of Kelsey Grammer and wife, Kayte Walsh, at the event. Grammer, an...

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Sen. Sasse. The anniversary of Roe v. Wade is a natural time to reflect on the country's view of abortion, a topic on which we are having an ongoing, heartfelt, and still unresolved debate. For thousands of mothers and fathers, grandparents and siblings, abortion has taken a life, broken a family, and left a scar. Because of these losses, many Americans have reevaluated their perspective on this sensitive yet profound issue. As science improves our understanding, we can now clearly acknowledge the small fingers, toes, beating heart, functioning nervous system, and unique DNA...

    Washington The annual March for Life, set for Jan. 22, will convene in a new location in the nation's capital for the traditional midday rally. Because of the ongoing refurbishment of the National Mall and strict new regulations that require temporary flooring to protect the grass, the rally has been moved from the West Front of the Capitol to the Washington Monument grounds. "We were lucky to get that. It's going to cost us $70,000, and it's not something we budgeted for," said Jeanne Monahan-Mancini, president of March for Life. "It's the most economical wide-open space we could afford." Other...

I long to see more people I don’t know participate, even people to whom I live next door. There may be a myriad of reasons why not everyone comes. You may think you don’t want to attend because that isn’t your thing—you are involved in other ministries and the pro-life stand is great, but not your battle. Or you may not come because you don’t think anything is wrong with abortion. You may not come because you aren’t a...

I'm a practicing radiologist, and the miracle of peeking into that intimate space and then looking up to catch the awe in the parents' faces never seems to get old. But a couple of months ago I got the call that all physicians dread. A fellow doctor called me, irate, saying, "You missed something!" My heart dropped and I waited to hear what I had overlooked or misdiagnosed. The OB-GYN went on. "I delivered a baby girl yesterday with a cleft lip and palate. You did not mention...

    Multiple eyewitnesses reported that police arrested pro-abortion counter-protesters at the March for Life on Thursday afternoon in front of the Supreme Court. A spokesperson for the D.C. Capitol Police confirmed that eight people had been arrested, though she could not confirm whether all of those arrested were pro-choice or if some pro-life activists had been arrested as well. The pro-abortion rights protesters, appearing to number in the low hundreds, had blocked the path of the hundreds of thousands of anti-abortion marchers. Holding signs advocating Abortion on demand, without apology, the pro-abortion rights protesters forced anti-abortion activists to take the sidewalks...

    Hundreds of thousands of pro-life people turned out for the annual March for Life in Washington, braving cold temperatures to take a stand for the right to life of unborn children. While marchers mourned 42 years of legalized abortion, many sounded a hopeful theme for a pro-life future and think the decision will eventually be reversed. The Roe v. Wade decision, handed down on January 22, 1973, overturned pro-life laws offering protection for unborn children in most states across the country, and made abortions legal and virtually unlimited. Almost 58 million unborn children have been killed in abortions since. Polling...

    FULL TITLE: Glamorization of promiscuity must end before abortion can, Cardinal OMalley tells 11,000 at March for Life vigil Abortion will not end until the glamorization of promiscuity is reversed, Boston Cardinal Sean OMalley told an overflow crowd of over 11,000 pro-life pilgrims attending the National Prayer Vigil for Life at the Capitols Catholic Basilica Wednesday evening.

    Its hard to tell my story without sounding like I am blaming people. I think it is important to know the difference between explanations, blaming, and excuses. I just think its important for others to be able to identify. Like so many experience, what seemed to me a happy home when I was small, turned into dysfunction, heartache, and disaster over the course of my double-digit years and throughout high school. My Dad was a fun-loving and good-humored man with a tortured soul who eventually battled his demons with alcohol alone. I watched my childhood knight slowly, then suddenly slide...

    A March for Life event was led by pro-lifers commemorating little Annabelle Marie Roos whose family refused to abort her after she was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder.

She peacefully passed away in the arms of her mom with her dad and aunt rubbing her gently. Annabelle was diagnosed on July 14, 2014 with full Trisomy 18.
