PHOTOS: San Francisco Walk for Life

Sunday, January 25, 2009

My experience walking with more than 30,000 fellow pro-lifers at the Walk for Life this last Saturday literally changed my life. I have never been in such a large crowd of happy, caring and dedicated people, all focused on ending the genocide of nearly 50 million unborn babies that have been killed since Roe v. Wade. The speakers before the march were inspiring--my favorite part was when a woman who gotten pregnant at 15 and been pressured by the boy friend-father to abort it, presented the son that she had instead decided to give life. Despite the few counter-protesters who yelled and waved vulgar signs at us, all of the walkers were calm and cheerful. I was especially grateful to see the many demographically at risk girls--ranging from pre-teen to young adult--in attendance, as well as the majority being comprised of minorities.

There was also a great display of religious fervor, with priests reciting mass with bull-horns along the route and praise-bands singing alleluias to the accompaniment of congas and guitars. Creeds and beliefs aside, all were united in prayer and dignified activism. I had no idea that an event like this could bring such a diverse group of people into such solidarity. I strongly implore all who read this to participate in future peaceful events like this and build our coalition of decency to put an end to the slaughter of the unborn and the exploitation of women.

It was a great walk...the 4th I have attended in San Fran. This past year was really nice in that for a good part of the walk I was close to a youth group that played guitar and sang almost the entire walk.

One should not pay too much attention to the counter-protestors (except for a kind prayer).

thanks

Just a correction, the priests were reciting the Rosary on bullhorns, not Mass.

The image with the 2 women holding the Change Roe v. Wade signs sent chills down my spine. Women will always need abortions. To not provide them is anti-women. Plain and simple. It's about WOMEN and protecting and honoring them. As Dr. Tiller said "I trust women."

Anon, If you really understood what abortion did, it would send chills down your spine. Watch this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgiTrQkH9Jg) and then tell me abortion is not murder.

Abortion stops a beating heart. Do you realize that ONE THIRD of all African-American babies were killed before they ever had a chance at life--BY THEIR MOTHER! Not conceiving a child when you should not have one is a choice all women should and must make. Killing their baby because it is INCONVENIENT is cold, heartless murder and abortion activists everywhere have done irreparable damage to millions of women who are fooled into thinking that killing their baby is no more than removing an infected tonsil.

I guarantee you that every baby wants to live. They have an inalienable right to live. There is no greater right than the right to life. Not even a mother should be able to take that right away from a child.
