Keep Marching {40 years = 55 million dead}

...and so does the mainstream media, in lies of omission and lies of commission
2013 marks 40 years of the legal killing of the unborn in our country.  Although the media fails to report the March for Life in our state capitol or our national capitol, it's real!  Members of our family were present at both marches (again) this year to witness for life.

Washington State March for Life, January 22, 2013, Olympia, WA
Departing Bellingham at 6AM and embarking on a 3+ hour drive, we arrived at the Mass for Life, held in the gym at St. Martin's University in Lacey.  Celebrated by Archbishop Sartain, concelebrated by dozens of priests, the Mass was offered for the unborn.  Our prayers for the healing of our culture, for the conversion of pro abortion politicians, and for healing for each person hurt by abortion were lifted up in the Mass.

We cannot accept the killing of the unborn. 
We will not accept the killing of the elderly. 
Andrew St. Hilaire, co founder of the Anti-Choice Project
The ongoing sacrifice of abortion, claiming the lives of 3,500 children each DAY in the US must be stopped.  One day's March for Life each year wasn't designed to be the only coordinated pro-life effort, but at this giant rally we alert our legislators with our numbers and join in prayer for the conversion of our killing country.

Our commitment to protecting life from conception to natural death includes ongoing prayers and acts of penance offered for the end to abortion and for conversion and repentance for all involved in this holocaust.
 Prayer warrior and former pastor, Father Marion, in his Benedictine habit after the Mass for Life at St. Martin's University, visited briefly with a few of us before heading back to his cell at the monastery.

Thanks for the gift of life, Mom! Thanks for Marching for Life!
