About 240 people showed up at the Monroe County Courthouse for the 2013 Rally for Life, sponsored by Christian Citizens for Life. You can see pictures from the rally on the CCFL Facebook page.
Speeches from the rally are below:
A lot of people put a great deal of effort into planning and organizing the Rally for Life, which marked the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that fabricated a “right” to abortion that exists nowhere in the Constitution. With this evil decision, laws against abortion in all 50 states were thrown out.
Last year, we got some opposition from the Occupy Bloomington movement, which also showed up a few days later to physically attack peaceful pro-life protesters at Planned Parenthood. This year, the only opposition we had (other than the usual few people screaming at us from their cars) was a woman who stopped at Planned Parenthood to preach the gospel of death to people marching by the “clinic.”
The woman offered this gem of a comment to the Herald-Times: “I just think people come from different backgrounds and you can’t tell a person to do one thing or another. You can try to push them in one direction.”
Somehow, I think if someone drove off with her automobile to use as his own that this woman would not feel that you cannot tell him to do one thing or another. She would probably fill out a police report and try to get her vehicle back. Even those who spout moral relativism usually break with their own views when it is something they do not like.
We have been wandering in the wilderness of legalized abortion for 40 years. One can only hope that God will have mercy on us and take away this bloodshed from our land.
