This Friday, we were privileged to attend the March for Life in Washington, D.C. The march marked the 37th anniversary of Supreme Court decisions that decriminalized abortion in America--costing more than 50 million lives and countless broken hearts.
The day was dominated by an overwhelming sense of hope and solidarity as more than 350,000 people of all ages gathered to send a powerful message: We will no longer tolerate the scourge of abortion in America.
Instead of relying on the courts or politicians to end abortion, pro-lifers are going to their own hands, feet and--most importantly--knees. The results are unmistakable. Nationally, the pro-life movement has stalled efforts to federally fund abortion. Locally, we've kept abortion out of the Madison Surgery Center for over a year. In fact, 40 Days for Life National Director David Bereit asked us to present to a conference in Washington on Thursday because YOUR efforts have been so effective!
Not since the Civil Rights movement has our nation seen anything resembling this groundswell of prayer and witness. The flood waters are rising, and deep cracks now appear in the culture of death. We couldn't all be in Washington last week, but each of us can help build a Culture of Life here in Wisconsin. Join us!
- Wisconsin's Second Annual Defend Life Rally will take place on Saturday February 6 at noon on Library Mall (the 700-800 block of State Street in Downtown Madison). Plan to attend and bring a friend. Spread the word at your church. Print and share the flier. Post it and invite friends on your Facebook page!
