March for Life 2014


My daughter went to the March for Life this year on one of three buses from her high school.

What weather they had!  I believe it was 10 degrees with a wind chill of below zero.  While I have not seen an official count no doubt the number was in the hundreds of thousands.  THAT many people show up in THAT kind of weather and, as usual, there was very little media coverage.

I was pleasantly surprised, however, that CNN gave it some three minutes of a broadcast.  I'm hoping the link below will work.

A lot of very positive, pro-life messages were given.  For CNN, it was not half bad!

Teresa Tomeo from Ave Maria Radio also made a very interesting point this morning on her show "Catholic Connection.  She said this is the first time she has heard the media use the term "March for Life," rather than "anti-abortion protest" or some such thing.  She felt the using of the real title was very significant and I agree.  Words matter.  Using the actual title allows the true meaning of the March to be conveyed and I was happy to hear it.

Perhaps, after 41years, the tide of public opinion is finally starting to swing.  Our Lady of Guadalupe, please pray for our country and for our unborn.

I think it was more exhausting for her. Two nights on a bus, you know. I picked her up at FGR at 4:30AM!
