Thanks to everyone who came out early this morning to pray for an end to the horrors of abortion. Your presence was so appreciated and so powerful. The highlight of this morning’s vigil was once again the faithful witness of beautiful children, this time six of the wonderful Vanguras. What a beautiful pro-life statement this family makes just by standing there!
Two African-American men stopped this morning to share their stories with us. One said that he tried unsuccessfully to convince his girlfriend not to have an abortion twenty years ago, and he is still mourning that child today. Another recounted how his then-sixteen-year-old sister became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. However, his faithful family convinced her that it would be wrong. The precious baby born to his sister just graduated high school with a 4.0 average and was accepted to Spellman College on a full scholarship!
