I didn’t know what to expect at my first March for Life last week. How would I fit in? Everyone knows pro-lifers are patriarchal, angry, white men.
Radical, right-wing extremists.
Really, really old.
Curmudgeons who don’t have any fun.
Definitely not cool.
They don’t care about women and children.
In fact, they don’t care about women’s rights at all.
Not enough of them to cover in the news anyway.
Just a handful of loonies.
Who aren’t going away anytime soon.
God’s plan looked foolish to men, but it is wiser than the best plans of men. God’s plan which may look weak is stronger than the strongest plans of men. 1 Corinthians 1:25 NLV
Let Mercy Lead by the timeless Rich Mullins.
“Various media outlets put the estimate for this year’s March for Life crowd at between 500,000 and 650,000.” Catholic News Service
