Importance of presence at D.C. march

Tyson Marx | Thursday, January 27, 2011

In the battle to end the horror of abortion, the march of Notre Dame students and faculty this year felt much like the coming of the elves to Helm’s Deep in Peter Jackson’s rendition of the Two Towers. In a crowd of weary and rugged pro-lifers, many of whom have been showing up for the past 20+ years, it was good for them to see a crop of young, smart and elite students willing to fight on their side of the battle.

I urge all pro-life students to make the sacrifice next year, to endure the hardships of sleeping on a gymnasium floor or to brave the freezing cold of the “Penance Bus.” Your example will go further than you realize in raising up the pro-life movement toward victory.
