Early this morning thirty-five Seton Catholic students, five staff members and several parent volunteers embarked on the 500+ mile journey to Washington, D.C. to participate in tomorrow’s March for Life. The March for Life is a peaceful demonstration to share the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand. The annual rally is always held close to the anniversary marking the Roe v Wade decision from 1973.
Catholics have long believed that God loves each human life from the instant of his or her conception and entrusts this gift to the protection of a mother and father. Abortion ends the life of a child and offends God. It also deeply wounds the men and women involved causing internal turmoil and depression for them for years to come.
Senior Kelsey Martin shares, “I am participating in the march because I believe that a person’s a person no matter how small and I want others to understand that. The right to life means the right to be born and live the life God wants for you.”
“I’m participating in the march because I believe that all babies have the right to live and God is the only decision maker on who lives and dies,” added Claire Kitchin.
As Catholics we pray daily for the sanctity of life from birth to natural death and for an end to abortion. May God’s loving hand bless and protect our students, staff and parents on this journey.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
