Massive 38th March for Life Reflects Youthful Resolve to Stop Abortion

When abortion activist Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL, saw last year’s March for Life in Washington, D.C. she was utterly astounded: “I just thought, my gosh, they are so young,” she told Newsweek. “There are so many of them, and they are so young.”

Abortion advocates like Keenan must be uneasy with the “so-many-so-young” trend.  However, as leaders of the pro-abortion movement get older and focus on retirement, the pro-life movement is ever more youthful, numerous and vibrant.  And nowhere is the resilience and vitality of the pro-life movement more apparent than at the annual March for Life, where hundreds of thousands of Americans stand against the slaughter of the unborn.

On Monday morning, January 24, busload after busload of pro-lifers rolled into the Capitol eager to peacefully oppose abortion and roll back the culture of death.  Bishops, priests and religious were also there as parishes and schools came to protest the slaughter of the innocents.

As the march proceeded up Constitution Ave., its sheer size was massive.  The crowd – estimated at 300,000 – filled the width of the avenue from side to side and stretched into the horizon as far as the eye could see.  What a sight.

Why don’t the major media networks give this any real attention?  The reason is simple:  Like a barometer, the march indicates that the pro-life movement is alive and well.  The liberal media would rather ignore this fact.

But marchers brave the cold not for media attention but to make reparation before the throne of God for the sin of abortion. Many recite the rosary.  Banners and signs fill the esplanade.  The event, so ably organized by March for Life president Nellie Gray, also brings together a veritable who’s who in pro-life America with cardinals and bishops, senators and congressmen.


Editor’s note: The pro-death crowd has been killing off huge numbers of “their” side for more than a generation. What do they expect?

I believe sins of blasphemy and abortion provoke God’s ire. And we’re seeing how God is allowing the world to sink faster and faster into scary moral, financial and spiritual troubles, and …with worse things to come if people don’t pray the Rosary and amend their lives.

Last year, TFP Student Action helped organize 4,337 rosaries in the public square. And this year the TFP’s America Needs Fatima campaign is hoping to coordinate 5,000. Will you be one of these 5,000?

Featured Website: The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP)

The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) was born of a group of Catholic Americans concerned about the multiple crises shaking every aspect of American life. Founded in 1973, the American TFP was formed to resist, in the realm of ideas, the liberal, socialist and communist trends of the times and proudly affirm the positive values of tradition, family and property.

Central to the TFP mission is the idea that the various crises threatening American society and the Church cannot be seen as separate and disjointed. Rather they originate from a single cause.

The TFP handbook Revolution and Counterrevolution by Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira masterfully traces the historical and philosophical roots of this single cause: a phenomenon called the Revolution.

The TFP was born from the idea of a Counterrevolution, a reaction that would embrace every field of of human activity, but especially art, ideas and culture. TFP books, publications and newspaper advertisements help bring these views to the public. Moreover, the TFP is not afraid to take them to the streets with colorful sidewalk campaigns in major cities.

The first TFP was founded in Brazil in 1960 by Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira. The American TFP is one of many autonomous TFPs that now exist around the world dedicated to the same ideals and at the service of Christian Civilization (See links).
