March for Life 2011: Photos You're Not Going to See on the News

    Today I joined hundreds of thousands of people from around the country who have heard God's call to respect and protect human life from the moment of conception by attending the 38th annual March for Life in Washington D.C.  
     Along with several of our elected officials, both Republicans and Democrats, people from a variety of different religions and ethnic backgrounds, we came to pray, take a stand, make our voices heard, go on a march to tell our president, our government, our country that the majority of Americans are not okay with abortion and we certainly don't want our taxpayer dollars going to fund the killing of innocent children.   

     Statistics show that a third of the people in our generation have been killed because of abortion.  This modern day holocaust claims 3,000 lives a day.  Leaders from a number of different races, ethnicities, and creeds came and spoke today about the atrocity that 38 years ago became legal in our country: abortion. 
     Nine out of ten babies with disabilities die because when their parents are told the infant in the womb might have a disability, 90% choose to end the lives of their children through abortion. 

Prayer to End Abortion by Fr. Frank Pavone

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,

Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.

I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.

I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen!
