Good, comprehensive recap of the Walk from CSF’s Valerie Schmalz in the newspaper of the Archdiocese of San Francisco. And here’s some of our tens of thousands of pro-lifers Walking down Market Street:
Here’s an excerpt:
Tens of thousands of people rallied in San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza and then walked down Market Street in the 12th Annual Walk for Life West Coast, undaunted by intermittent rain, pro-abortion protesters who briefly disrupted one of the speakers, or by traffic congestion due to the upcoming Super Bowl.
“They tell us the lie that women – in order to have opportunities and in order for us be successful – we must have abortion rights,” said Obianuju Ekeocha, Nigerian founder and president of Culture of Life Africa, at the rally. Culture of Life Africa’s philosophy is consistent with St. John Paul II’s “theology of the body.” It rejects international aid tied to abortion, sterilization and other anti-life initiatives.
“I stand here before you not just as a black person or an African person. I stand here before you as a woman to say we should never have to buy success with the blood of our babies,” Ekeocha said.
