We’re used to seeing quarterbacks pummeled at the Super Bowl, but this year something else was sacked: a pro-life message featuring Barack Obama. Although NBC had originally agreed to run the commercial, it subsequently balked, stating that it wasn’t going to air advocacy ads.
Tens of thousands of pro-life supporters marched through San Francisco on January 24 to register their opposition to the continuing abortion holocaust unleashed by the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. However, the event was almost totally blacked out by the so-called "mainstream" media. Except for coverage by pro-life websites and the global Catholic EWTN television network, one wouldn't even know the West Coast Walk for Life had occurred, unless one had been there.
Tens of thousands of pro-life supporters from the San Francisco Bay area and throughout California converged on San Francisco for the fifth annual Walk for Life, West Coast, on Saturday, January 24. In spite of threats of rain and the even more threatening prospect of violent counter-demonstrators, the peaceful march through San Francisco's famous Fisherman's Wharf district continued its trend of dramatically increasing in size each year.
Yesterday, January 22, saw a veritable army of pro-lifers participate in the 35th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. This demonstration of public sentiment was first held in 1974 to mark the first anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. In that decision, of course, the Supreme Court ruled that all state laws prohibiting abortion were unconstitutional. Since then, an estimated 50,000,000 babies have been killed in the womb in the United States.
Americans who came from all over the United States gathered in our nation's capital on January 22 to participate in the 35th annual March for Life. Though official attendance figures were unavailable as we write, observers speaking on the EWTN television network said it appeared the number of marchers exceed last year's 200,000.
