March for Life Recap

Topics: News

The March for Life is a remarkable event, held yearly in Washington DC to commemerate the anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision. Last year's March was peaceful but enthusiastic and had well over 150,000 people in attendance by my estimates.

Bobby Schindler, Terri Schiavo's brother, and Brother Paul O'Donnell were among the speakers who received an extraordinarily warm welcome from the crowd. Their comments, although brief, reflect their passion for the future and dedication to fighting the rise of euthanasia in America:

Brother Paul O'Donnell
Franciscan Brothers of Peace

"Thank you, Thank you. I'm going to be very brief. But I'm here for two reasons today specifically. One, to tell our civic leaders, our church leaders that the Pro-Life movement will defend all life from fertilization til natural death regardless whether someone is disabled or not, we are going to be pro-life.

Secondly, last year Terri was murdered in our country, and yes, murdered before our eyes. I am here to ask you to help me honor this heroic family, Bob and Mary Schindler, the parents of Terri Schiavo, and Bobby Schindler."

The Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation

"I want to thank the Right to Life movement here in the United States and abroad for your prayers and support for my sister, Terri Schiavo, and our efforts to try save her life. We lost Terri, but this does not mean God did not hear your prayers. Your prayers sustained our family, and we are here today to tell you that we are going forward to fight against care rationing, euthanasia, and medical killing. We have established The Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation to help others avoid the same fate my sister endured.

Please visit us at www.terrisfight.org. We invite you to join us in this all important battle for the lives of our weak, vulnerable, and disabled brothers and sisters.

Thank you and God bless you all."

During the March I caught up with a few volunteers from the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation who graciously poised for the pictures above while standing in front of the Supreme Court.


This year's event will be held on Jan. 22, 2007. Please visit MarchforLife for more information.

Please Note: BlogsforTerri authors plan to participate in the annual Blogs4life Conference, an event help before the March just a few blocks away. We hope to see you there.
