I went with a busload of folks departing from the Church of the Holy Innocents in Manhattan at 8:06 am Eastern and arrived almost exactly four hours later at the National Mall, after a rest stop at the Biden Welcome Center :nooo: in Delaware along I-95. As I recall Covid forced a cancellation of our trip in 2021. Today's speeches before the March were great: some were very moving. Katie Shaw, a 36-year old lady with Down syndrome, remarked that there are many children with Down syndrome waiting for adoption. I never before paid much attention to actor Kirk Cameron, but his speech was good. And I think I will long remember some of the other speeches.

Kudos to the folks who came, especially those making much more difficult journeys.

National March for Life


How wonderful that you were able to get there! And to brave the very cold weather. I got to see some live, and later on to watch some of what had already took place. I hope to hear the entire message of Father Mike Schmitz, and Katie Shaw.

It was about 32° F in D. C. for much of the March, so it wasn't too terrible, even if my hands started to feel like raw meat when I exposed them to the air to use Google Maps after detaching from my group. I had to find my way to an afternoon Mass we all attended.

Both Father Schmitz and Katie Shaw were very well received.

My thanks to all of you who marched. You are examples to us all.

I will add a prayer for you.

As long as it's one Supreme Court justice's vote from being reinstated, it's not over. Even assuming that the Supremes don't find a way to dodge the issue.

"Trigger" laws and other laws in many states will allow direct abortion to continue even if Roe is jettisoned. The priest's homily at the Tridentine Latin Mass I attended at St. Mary Mother of God Catholic Church was about that. Much work will remain even if Roe goes into the ash heap.

You and I have the unpleasant distinction of living in two of the most rabidly pro-abort states.

Thank you Father for the reminder.

I am just hopeful that we can end this horrible crime against humanity. And whole overturning of Roe simply bounces the problem back to the states, it’s a better and more winnable fight at that level.

I suspect we’re still 60 to 100 years from completely outlawing it.

Well, I'll make a prediction here. Breyer retires and Banana Joe appoints Kamela as his replacement. Then he nominates Hillary as her replacement for VP, and when she's sworn in a piano falls on him.

While it would have been better for a conservative to replace a liberal, the balance of power will be the same.
