PRO LIFE VERY ACTIVE IN 2017




By Steve Jackson

On Friday, 27-Jan-17, the annual Pro-Life rally in Washington, DC was held. Many thanks to the Knights of Columbus members who attend as their efforts were greatly appreciated.

It was the first time that a Vice President addressed the rally. Vice President Michael Pence spoke to the young and energetic crowd. Michael Pence confirmed that this administration will fulfill its campaign promises regarding the Pro-Life movement. 

There was the National Defund Planned Parenthood Rally held on February 11, 2017 at the Warminster Planned Parenthood facility as well as 200 hundred locations across the nation. These events were well attended.

The next event is the 40 Days for Life vigil at the Comly Road Planned Parenthood facility. Every day during Lent, the Pro-Life supporters are asked to visit this facility for one hour to pray, demonstrate and counsel. Many local parishes have signed up for a specific day to have their parishioners be present at the facility during their scheduled day. It would be a blessing to have the Saint John Neumann Knights support their local parishes in this event or have the Saint John Neumann assembly sponsor a day to visit this facility.
