My observations of the March for Life began before I even attended. This was my first time going, and I was hoping I would be able to find a ride down there. I didn’t know where exactly I was going to be during the March, various work situations had taken me from Allentown, PA to Pittsburgh, PA and to Ft. Wayne Indiana. Since by nature I am a networker I reached out to each of the nearby campus groups and found that all of them were sending delegations and all of them, though they had limited room, would be able to fit one more! This is more impressive when you consider that Ft. Wayne, Indiana is more than 550 miles away and that they had chartered a whole bus! The youth of this nation were certainly determined to attend!

A young pro-life woman wonders when some Millennials are going to wake up to the big lie about reproductive freedom.
As the United States marks the fortieth anniversary of the Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, there’s been a lot of talk about who’s winning and who’s losing in the contentious debate over abortion rights. A focal point in that debate has been Millennials like myself, who’ve lived their entire lives with a constitutional “right to abortion”. Read more…

We had a great group come out for the Walk for Life. Unfortunately, even though we had over 20 Berkeley students come out, Stanford had more. BUT, in terms of quality, BSL had way more news coverage.
We were featured in photos http://www.walkforlifewc.com/(scroll down), on TV http://www.ktvu.com/videos/
This short video shows you what the liberal media fears: More young Americans are fighting abortion — Watch & share the amazing footage here
It could have been the largest March for Life in history — 500,000 strong — in the bitter cold and snow.
Yet the major media mentions nothing or next to nothing. Read more…
“Picture a football stadium that holds 55,000 people, and then multiply that to 1,000 such filled stadiums, and you’ll have an idea of how many human beings we have lost, how many babies have been killed, since the Roe v. Wade decision 40 years ago.” Read more…
Mary Cooney writes about Friday’s March for Life through Washington D.C. to the steps of the Supreme Court, where, 40 years ago, the court created a right to abortion on demand at any time during pregnancy: “Despite the cold weather and snow, there were many more people at the March for Life than I have seen in past years. There were easily over half a million people there, mostly young and exuberant. Very uplifting and inspiring! And we ran into some people from Arizona and Canada.”
From the Walk for Life West Coast official website:
We, of course, are used to bias by the mainstream media. That does not mean we will not identify it when we see it.
Check out this clip from KTVU TV on yesterdays Walk for Life West Coast (50,000 + persons) and the opposition rally (300 persons according to KGO TV.) They interviewed 2 people from the tiny rally, and one person (Anne Morse, a Berkeley Student for Life) at the Walk for Life West Coast, who did great.
We do admit it is probably easier to get to a rally speaker when the rally has so few attendees…
