March for Life 2010

Today is the 37th anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision to legalize abortion in the United States. The annual March for Life started at 9:00 a.m. at the National Mall on 7th Street and continued on its way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Here's a nice picture of some students from Ave Maria University, which is Katie's oldest daughter's alma mater, marching in the cold and supporting the right of the most innocent and vulnerable among us to live.

And here's a quote from Mother Teresa, spoken at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washing D.C., February 1997, with President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton sitting right there behind her, trying to look like they hadn't just been slapped across the face with a pair of wet, dirty gym socks:

"What is taking place in America," Mother Teresa said, "is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?"

Please pray for an end to abortion.
