Roe v. Wade Pro-Life Rally Experienced

There were many pro-life rallies today across the country, but I can tell you that the one held in Portland, Oregon, was amazing!

The heavens wept (literally) as bells tolled 51 times, once for each million of the 51 million babies who have been lost to abortion in America since Roe v. Wade became the law of the land in 1973.

Speakers included Archbishop John Vlazny, Cindy Brunk of Silent No More, Tamra Johnson of 40 Days for Life, Dr. Frank Rosenbloom of Oregon Right to Life, Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers of Aurem Cordis, Ann Cowan of University of Portland, and Pastor Ron Sunseri of Morning Star Church. Music was provided by Dan and Georgene Rice and their great band.

Through her story of post-abortion stress, Cindy shared effective ways of reaching the millions of men and women who are still struggling with their guilt and shame.

Deacon Harold's rousing message included a call to African-American men to become heroes by protecting and nurturing their families.

Ann Cowan rallied her peers, the next generation, to take a stand for life and press on unafraid, girded with hope for a better world.

I could go on and on. Every speaker thrilled the audience with words of wisdom and encouragement. It was a great day. The audience was respectful and upbeat despite heckling from pro-abortion picketers.

I hope other Pro-Life Rallies across the country had similar experiences. Why not write and tell us about them!
