Twelve (or So) Things that Caught My Eye at the March for Life 2019

(Kathryn Jean Lopez)

On today — what some of us call the Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children — a few people and signs that caught my eye on Friday at the March for Life ….

1. The painful reality …

2. Not a statistic, not a theoretical debate …

3. The pro-life generation …

4. So many families …

 

5. I ran into my intern from last summer, here with her father … and other friends … :

6. They walked even if it wasn’t easy …

6. Some call themselves feminists, reclaiming a word …

7. He must be a Knight of Columbus …

8. Some like books, too … (I thought there might be common loves among our readers) …

 

9. Adoption was out there …

10. As was MLK Jr…

11. And Mother Teresa …

12. Before going home, a reminder to live the March for Life — its not for one day a year … they do … (the Sisters of Life at dusk) …

There are more photos here — some from Katie Yoder’s phone, some from mine, some from other sources (credited). And even more if you scroll down @KathrynLopez.
