California Catholic Daily covers the Walk for Life West Coast!
Walk for Life’s proximity to Women’s March was “providential”
Organizers delighted with Saturday’s Walk for Life West Coast
Neither the threat of rain nor the proximity of a massive anti-Trump ‘Women’s March” deterred tens of thousands of pro-lifers from attending San Francisco’s 13th Annual Walk for Life West Coast on Saturday, January 21.
The rain halted when the organizers began setting up early in the morning, and began coming down heavily almost as soon as the Walk ended in the late afternoon.
This year’s Walk was complicated by the Women’s March, which began, like the Walk, in Civic Center Plaza. The Women’s March rally began at 3PM, just after the last Walk for Lifers left the plaza. It then proceeded along the same route as the Walk, down Market Street to San Francisco’s Ferry Building.
Walk co-Chair and co-founder Eva Muntean told CalCatholic that “while it caused us a lot of additional work during preparation, what with coordinating with the police and the organizers of the other event to prevent conflicts, I now actually think it was providential. Because the Women’s March had tens of thousands of people walking down Market Street right under our ‘Abortion Hurts Women’ banners. Not all of them were pro-abortion fanatics, and even they can be reached. We’re positive, we know from past experience, that our message of life and love, hope and healing will have reached some of those women. And even if it is just one, what is one life, one soul worth? Everything!”…
