West Chester Holds Inuaugral March for Life; Mourns 30 Years of Bloodshed

Despite a taste of summer in the air on Saturday, June 5th, 500 pro-lifers gathered for a call to action while mourning the thousands of lives lost to abortion in West Chester, PA a 45-minute drive from Philadelphia.

The day began with Mass at St. Agnes Church near the heart of town. Bishop John McIntyre was celebrant homilist for the Mass for Life. In his homily, he reflected on his visit to the 9/11 memorial in New York and how the 3,000 lives lost there was no different that the daily murder of the unborn in our society today. He reminded everyone that life from womb to tomb is precious and made perfect in the eye of God.

After the celebration of Mass, the pro-lifers peacefully march around town. The first stop was the Planned Parenthood facility.

Following the brief rally and prayer at Planned Parenthood, everyone processed to the courthouse in the middle of town.

The speakers were deep, personal, and cover topics that are affecting the culture of life.

Overall, the day was filled with beauty and love.

Support the Generation Life Golf Outing!

Please see the email below with details on the  Generation Life Golf Outing fundraiser.  While there are many avenues in the pro-life movement:  legislative, prayerful, pregnancy center donations, public rallies, etc., Generation Life’s mission is to get to the root cause of abortion.  Their goal is to educate the younger generations about chastity and try to stop the want or need for an abortion.  They meet young people where they are and proclaim this message.  Gen Life stands outside of abortion centers, speaks at pro-life rallies and most importantly, is a younger voice for the unborn. If you are an armchair golfer, then consider participating through a donation.  If you were impressed by Phil Mickelson’s recent PGA Championship at the age of 50 and want to get back out on the links, then here’s your chance! Either way, please support Generation Life.  It is through their ministry that true change will take place.
