March For Life 2022

March for Life

2022

Today marks the 49th anniversary of the March for Life that takes place in Washington, DC. every year.  This is the date that commemorates the disastrous Supreme Court decision of Roe Vs Wade that made abortion legal in our land.  An estimated 50,000 people are expected to take part in the march today to protest this decision, just as they have done for all these years.

We are praying that this will be the last March for Life and are looking for Roe vs Wade to be overturned with the Supreme Court that President Trump so wonderfully provided.  There have already been many court decisions that protect the unborn, for which we are thankful. 

Our church has been an annual participant in the March for Life for many years.  A charter bus is rented and has always been full.

Below is an article, written by Maria Lawrence, about last years march that was published in the church periodical-January 2021 issue of the Allegheny Wesleyan Methodist.  It gives you an idea of what is involved in going to the march from here.  The photo in the upper left hand is a photo of the banner that her and I made many years ago to carry.  Hopefully, you can enlarge the photo and read the article.

I have not been able to attend the march for the last number of years due to health issues, so my poor hubby has to go without me….enjoying his pancakes alone at the breakfast stop along the way.

Abortion accounts for 42% of all of the deaths worldwide-62 million babies have been killed so far.

The theme of this years march is “Equality Begins in the Womb”  A good group to follow for up to date news on the right to life fight is Live Action.org.

The first issue for anyone that I vote for is the pro-life issue.

“First and foremost I vote for life.

Without the right to life any other liberties are meaningless.”

Praying for a swift end to the atrocity of abortion.

Vote!

Let’s Vote!

“America, if eligible at all to downfall and ruin,

is eligible within herself,

not without…..

Always inform yourself;

always do the best you can;

always vote.”

Walt Whitman, 150 years ago

Tomorrow is the day you can have a say in our government.  Our government is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people- you are the people of this country, so don’t let others decide for you.  Don’t let this opportunity pass-get out and vote. This is your opportunity to let your voice be heard.  Vote your conscience, vote for the right, become informed so you can make a good decision.

The over riding force for me in voting is said so well by Elizabeth Worden Bixby-

First and foremost I vote for life.

Without the right to life any other liberties

are meaningless.

I always vote pro-life.

Are you planning to vote?

Psalm 139:13-16

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body

and knit me together in my mother’s womb.

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!

Your workmanship is marvelous-

how well I know it.

You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,

as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.

You saw me before I was born….
