“Some 50,000 pro-life people lined the streets of San Francisco on a cold, rainy day on Saturday for the West Coast Walk for Life — a way for pro-life Americans in the western United States to show their opposition to abortion.
Starting in 2005, with 7,500 participants the Walk has grown in both attendance and diversity each year, until it is now the second largest pro-life event in the United States. Last year’s attendance was estimated as high as 50,000 people and just as many people showed up yesterday despite the poor weather.
‘We know that life is greater than death … and human life is the future, pro-life is the future,’ Live Action founder Lila Rosa, a Californian who is pregnant with her third child, told those gathered to hear the Walk speakers at the plaza in front of City Hall.
‘You truly, truly are shining lights in a dark city. California, our beautiful state, is not the sum of … the evil we have permitted here,’ she said, referring to the constitutional amendment making abortion legal until birth that was passed by voters in November following the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court in June 2022.”
