Entire Student Body of Christendom College to March for Life

This January 22, the entire student body of Christendom College, as well as members of the faculty and staff, will join the hundreds of thousands of pro-life American's at the 35th Annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. Christendom has cancelled classes for the day and the Student Activities Council has charted buses to transport over 400 people from its Front Royal, Virginia campus.

The theme of this year's March for Life is "Build Unity on the Life Principles throughout America. No Exception! No Compromise!" This theme is charged with the positive fighting spirit that is characteristic of the March. 

The March for Life is a peaceful demonstration that memorializes the Supreme Court's infamous abortion decisions in Roe v. Wade.  On January 22, 1974, the first March for Life was held with 20,000 pro-life Americans in attendance. The numbers have grown steadily through the years.

Founded 30 years ago Christendom College has attended the March for Life as a community every year.  Its students are active in pro-life work year round, leading prayerful protests at a Planned Parenthood Clinic in Washington once a week. For more information visit http://www.christendom.edu/

    Wonderful to have such a concerted effort on the part of youth who understand the consequences of abortion in our country.  Now it is time to organize a grassroots constitutional amendment movement that disallows abortion.  Apart from engaging every individual's conscience to refuse abortion, an amendment is perhaps the most effective means to show that the American public really wants to do away with abortion.  The Supreme Court, the Legislature and the Executive Office are, after all, only the servants of the populace and depend for their positions on the will of the people.  They will eventually follow the will of the people if we are serious and concerted in our communication of what we desire.
