On Friday we braved the cold and snow, to join 500,000 other Pro-Life supporters in the annual March for Life in Washington, DC. This is the eleventh year our family has done this. In the 40 years since Roe v. Wade, 55 million Americans have been killed in their mother's womb. A huge number of those babies were killed, for profit, by tax-payer supported Planned Parenthood. This is genocide that is championed, and even cheered, by our current president. Think about it for just a second — 55 million Americans.
Why did we go to DC? Do we think that the president is going throw open the window in the White House and say, "What was I thinking?" Of course not. Will legalized abortions be overturned any time soon? Doubtful. The March for Life is a movement to change hearts. It is wake up call that civilized people don't sacrifice children on the altar of convenience. And it's happening. The huge percentage, even possibly a majority, of the participants in the march are young people. As one speaker noted, the young are not the future of the Pro-Life movement, they are the Pro-Life movement.
Just as young people today realize the importance of the 2nd Amendment to preserve life and liberty, they are also refreshingly Pro-Life. The old guard which supports the oppression of both liberty and life is fading into the past.
