March For Life 2019

Upwards of 200,000 and possibly more attended the 46th annual March for Life in Washington DC, filling the Mall. They were addressed by Vice President Mike Pence:

We gather here today because we know we still have much work to do. We urge you to stand strong. Stand with that love and compassion as you stand for life, and know that we will stand with you until that great day comes where we restore the sanctity of life to the center of American law.

Pence went on to introduce President Trump, who gave a video address stating:

We are supporting the loving choice of adoption and foster care, including through the support of faith-based adoption services. And I am supporting the U.S. Senate's effort to make permanent the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding for abortion in spending bills. 
Today I have signed a letter to Congress to make clear that if they send any legislation to my desk that weakens the protection of human life, I will issue a veto. And we have the support to uphold those vetoes. 
Every child is a sacred gift from God. As this year's March For Life theme says, each person is unique from Day One. That is a very important phrase. Unique from Day One. And so true. 

Well said, Pence and Trump, and in stunning contrast to the previous administration, which enthusiastically advocated killing babies in the womb. I'll call it as I see it.

How can any Christian, perhaps especially catholics, continue to support a party which platforms on infanticide. All in the name of demonic self-will, deceitfully masquerading as freedom and healthcare.

The modern abortion movement was founded on lies and its patron anti-saint Margaret Sanger famously shrieked out "No Gods, no Masters!" On the contrary, she and her heirs have a God and a Master but don't kid yourself for an instant that such a beast lives in heaven.

There will be a reckoning.

All for life,

It's interesting how progs are so opposed to private, lawful ownership of firearms (because of their danger to human life), are so arrogantly and enthusiastically in favor of the slaughter of often VIABLE human beings in utero.

I understand that there are circumstances when to save the life of a mother or in the case of rape or incest, an early term abortion may be a lawful option. I do not set myself up as judge and jury in situations like that.

The Progressive movement and the millions their leaders rake in from the sale of baby body parts are wrong and wicked in the extreme and it's incumbent on us to oppose them. This march for life is important because it reminds legislators how many of us feel on the subject.

LL, I'd say the whole thing's up there with the most wicked episodes in history and I fail to see how the West and our own nation isn't under a great judgement because of it.

The baby parts trade was especially repugnant. How far are we from some kind of Soylent Green? Maybe not very. Thank God there's a healthy opposition to this evil.

Our bishops support illegal immigration because they need Hispanics to fill up the now empty pews ("Vatican II empty Pew").

Unfortunately for the bishops they shouldn't count on Hispanics to save them. Hispanics are loyal Democrats and when push comes to shove will choose the God of Caesar over the God of Christ.
