The March For Life

It is strange. This is the second year in a row that I have not been in the March for Life. Joining with 150,000 or so civil rights marchers for the unborn was becoming an annual event when I lived in Washington. The family had a much better track record than I have. Brigid is the only one that made it this year.

Both the Washington Post and the Washington Times web sites cover it. Kansas always had a strong contingent. When Senator Bronbeck and the Kansas congressmen spoke a loud roar would rise from the crowd. Benedictine College was always well represented. This year the March includes over 750 Catholic pro lifers from the Wichita Diocese including Bishop Jackels.

You can hear and see one of our marchers from the area on the Washington Post video in the next post.
