Today, on the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and the 41st annual March for Life is happening in Washington D.C. Despite the cold, snowy conditions, thousands of pro-life marchers have banded together to show their support for the unborn, to give a voice to the billions who do not have one. We offer up our prayers on behalf of the marchers and for those they are marching for, as we join them in spirit, and we encourage you to do the same.
I join the March for Life in Washington with my prayers. May God help us respect all life, especially the most vulnerable
