Another Year, Another March to Protect Life!

By Cathy Donohoe, President Board of Directors

On Friday, January 18th, facing temperatures in the low 30’s and light snow, a group of marchers from Queens ventured to Washington DC for the 46th annual March for Life.  I organized and accompanied two buses which left Queens at 5:30 a.m., after a Mass celebrated for the unborn.  One bus was filled with young people – at least 12 who were attending for the first time.

We continue to march each year to mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade — a decision from the Supreme Court legalizing abortion in our country. We march to stand up for the voiceless. We march for women who find themselves in unplanned pregnancies. We march because we believe all people have the right to life and that their lives should be protected from conception ’til natural death.

Among the marchers were men and women conceived in rape whose mothers were courageous and believed that their children, regardless of how they were conceived, deserved the right to live.  We marched with women who regretted their abortions and told their stories at the Supreme Court.  We marched with prayer warriors who witness outside abortion facilities every week to encourage young women not to abort. We march with people like me who volunteer at women support centers throughout the country to encourage women to make life-affirming choices for their families.

Thank you to all the pilgrims that accompanied me to our capital. Next year we hope to have the same march and celebrate an end of Roe v. Wade.

Unborn Lives are in even More Danger if NYS Passes RHA

With one party controlling all three houses of the State’s government, the passage of the Reproductive Health Act-RHA is on the horizon if those who believe in life can’t stop it.

While many people are praised and given heroic awards for saving lives: police, fire, Good Samaritans, to name a few, in New York State, it appears if one tries to save the life of an unborn child up until the ninth month of gestation, it could mean fines and/or prison terms.  Welcome to the ‘New’ New York.

RHA also gives authority to non-licensed physicians to perform abortions and also repeals protections for accidental live births and third trimester abortions.

Apparently, many of our NYS elected officials have forgotten the immortal words written by Thomas Jefferson in The Declaration of Independence:

“…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are LIFE , Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
