Irondale, AL (EWTN) With President Obama promising his first act in office will be to sign the Freedom of Choice Act and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops vowing to aggressively oppose this, the 2009 March for Life could be one of the biggest and most important in history.
EWTN will offer viewers the most complete coverage available on any platform of both Washington, D.C.s March for Life and San Franciscos Walk for Life. Coverage of the Jan. 22 events will include live Masses, walking processions, rallies, interviews, panel discussions, and speeches from pro-lifers around the country.

Prayer for the Unborn
Heavenly Father, in Your love for us, protect against the wickedness of the devil, those helpless little ones to whom You have given the gift of life.
Touch with pity the hearts of those women pregnant in our world today who are not thinking of motherhood.
Help them to see that the child they carry is made in Your image - as well as theirs - made for eternal life.
Dispel their fear and selfishness and give them true womanly hearts to love their babies and give them birth and all the needed care that a mother can give.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.

Saw that EWTN would be airing this when I looked at my satellite guide this morning. I will be watching tomorrow. Wish I could be there! Maybe next year. Wonder if there will be any mainstream media coverage?
Any media coverage will focus on the negative and not on the life issue. In previous years, the msm have minimized the actual number of attendees and given air time to pro aborts. EWTN provides live coverage all day!
I don’t think he’ll sign FOCA.
The way things are going, Planned Parenthood will apply for a bank charter and get TARP funds.
I’m only half-kidding.
Bank Charter, PP Credit Cards - Why not, PP already offers gift certificates.
The marchers are lights in the Darkness.
Safe to say Barek Obama is not invitaed eh NYer
I have done the past 3 Walks For Life in SF. I plan on being there again this Saturday. We had nice weather the past 3 years. This year, however, they say it may be raining. Ah well - Onward Christian Soldiers!!
