Abortion activists show up every year at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. to counter the hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers who march for unborn babies’ right to life.
This year, the pro-life message appears to have touched at least one of those protesters.
A Michigan woman called in to Teresa Tomeo’s Catholic Connection radio show recently to share the change that her family witnessed in a young pro-abortion protester during the march last week.
The caller, Maryanne, told Tomeo and her guest Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life, that her husband and daughter saw a young woman and two young men carrying pro-abortion signs ahead of the march.
As the three pro-abortion protesters walked up the streets in downtown D.C., she said they noticed the Created Equal display. The pro-life group’s display showed photos and video images of aborted babies to expose the brutality and violence of abortion.
“The woman stopped dead in her tracks, she started to cry. She put down her sign, and she picked up a pro-life sign,” Maryanne told Tomeo and Mancini.Maryanne said her family watched as the two men left the woman alone and crying. She said pro-lifers approached the young woman and showed her love and support.
“So, don’t ever think that this march doesn’t change hearts,” she said.Pro-lifers’ compassion and desire to help protect moms and babies from abortion are changing hearts and lives. And this compassion is evident at peaceful and often prayerful demonstrations like the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C.
