This Injustice Will Fall

The events of the past twenty four hours were so inspiring and energizing, even while commemorating the infamous 35th anniversary of abortion-on-demand being imposed on our country. From the Vigil Mass for Life last night at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception Basilica to the Blogs for Life Conference this morning, the actual March for Life itself and a post-March Capitol Hill reception only serve to energize me with hope and determination to see this great injustice overturned.

From the LifeNews article on the March:
Hundreds of thousands of pro-life people turned out for the annual March for Life in Washington, braving cold temperatures to take a stand for the right to life of unborn children. While marchers mourned 35 years of legalized abortion, many sounded a hopeful theme for a pro-life future and think the decision will eventually be reversed.

As with other recent marches, the number of young adults and high school and college students impressed organizers and provided another reason to be optimistic.

"People will get on a bus and travel 24, 48, 72 hours, some even further," Concerned Women for America president Wendy Wright told the Washington Times. "That's such an immense dedication, which is striking when you consider it is not on behalf of privileges or rights for themselves."
