Tens of thousands of pro-lifers marched with joy and enthusiasm Saturday in San Francisco amid hopes that Roe v. Wade could be overturned this year.
The 2022 Walk for Life drew approximately 20,000 pro-lifers to downtown San Francisco, including many young people, organizer Eva Muntean told the National Catholic Register.
Thomas Aquinas College junior Sophia Ferri, of Nashville, Tennessee, was one of them. She said she hopes the joy and love shared by the marchers will help people recognize the value of unborn babies.
“We live in a democratic republic, and I believe a public demonstration of our beliefs is important to change minds and hearts,” Ferri told the Register. “We want to say that life begins at conception, and no matter who you are, your life matters, and you are a beloved child of God.”
Although a few pro-abortion protesters showed up to counter-protest, the Walk for Life was peaceful, and city police were present to keep pro-lifers safe, according to the report.
