It seems fitting that another example of Holocaust – the legal termination of the lives of innocent and helpless human beings known as abortion – should coincide with International Holocaust Memorial Day.
From Franklin Graham’s post this morning on Facebook:
Over 58 million abortions have been performed legally in the U.S. since Roe v. Wade in 1973. Today Vice President Mike Pence is at The March for Life in Washington. He and thousands of others are standing up for the unborn and their rights. Let’s add our voice to theirs in support. Tag Vice President Mike Pence and the March for Life in your comments below to let them know of your support and prayers. Rather than looking back and wishing we had done something, let’s work to end the horror of abortion in this country now before tens of thousands more innocent lives are selfishly ended.
Thank you to the thousands of men and women who march against this shameful practice every year, standing up for those who cannot do so for themselves.
From March For Life:
Washington, D.C. – The March for Life is thrilled to announce its official list of guest speakers, set to address the world’s largest annual pro-life demonstration in Washington, D.C. on January 27th, 2017.
Kellyanne Conway, the highest-ranking White House official to ever speak at the March, will now be joined by Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), Representative Mia Love (R-UT) and Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ), along with many other prominent pro-life figures – including Archbishop of New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson, former Planned Parenthood Director and founder of ‘And Then There Were None’ Abby Johnson, Mexican Telenovela star Karyme Lozano, author and radio host Eric Metaxas, Bishop Vincent Matthews of the Church of God in Christ, who advocates for adoption in the African-American community, and a surprise VIP at the March for Life rally on the National Mall on January 27th, 2017.
“I’m delighted to welcome a remarkable line-up of rally speakers for what will truly be a historic 44th annual March for Life,” said Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life.
