The Silent War Against Death

Posted on Updated on

So this week, on Thursday, January 22nd, I participated at the annual March for Life in Washington D.C.

If you don’t know what the March for Life is, please continue reading.

The March for Life is when people, usually Americans—although people from out of the country are also present—, come together in peaceful protest against the legal right to abort unborn children.  It is a huge gathering.  This year, there were over 650,000 people in Washington D.C., all present to defend unborn babies.  There was no rioting, no jeering, no wrath from the protesters; only praying, chanting, and marching.  We went right up to the Supreme Court Building, where all of this started in the controversial trial of Roe. Vs. Wade.  The marching started at 1:00 and didn’t end for hours.

Does all of this surprise you?  Do you think I’m lying?

The thing is, it wouldn’t surprise me if you think that I am lying.  Because here’s the thing:

Just about every social media or news station will neither post nor say nothing about the March.

There’s more than half a million people in Washington D.C.  Wouldn’t you agree that it’s a little strange that so few people know about it?  Don’t you think more than half a million protesters in D.C. would create a buzz?  Why do you think this happens; why is the March ignored?

The congressmen and the president leave D.C. for the day.  News stations and social media websites ignore it.  Our government tries to cover this up, and the media obviously follows.  The truth is, our government knows how influential more than 650,000 protesters can be.  And our numbers have been rising each year (with the exception of last year, due to heavy snow).  But we cannot be ignored.  We have launched a peaceful, silent war against death.  Because, whether you like it or not, that’s what abortion brings to innocent, helpless human beings who have done nothing wrong: death.

Here are some pictures from the March that I took in case you don’t believe me.  Their unprofessional quality should be proof that they aren’t fake 😛

Yep, that’s a lot of people.  Look past the initial cluster of people towards the very back of the picture.  That’s not even close to the end of the March.

A lot of people know that abortion is immoral and that it can never be justified.  If you are of a different opinion, maybe you should reconsider.  I will not apologize for believing in something that is true.  And I will state that truth is something that you cannot disagree with; that’s what makes it the truth.

The next post will tackle some of the many arguments Pro-Abortion people have regarding why abortion isn’t immoral.,,even though it is.

    Reblogged this on Proverbs 31 Teen and commented:
    It’s so sad that this is ignored. Remind you of anything? Maybe… MLK Jr?

      He’s a perfect example. Totally peaceful, and with totally good intentions. I wish that our society would acknowledge this endeavor as much as they did MLK Jr’s.

        Exactly. I’ve only seen it mentioned on Christian websites and in Christian magazines… which cater to the audience that already knows.

        Yeah same here. It totally bugs me and says a lot about our government and media.

        I know. It’s all really biased. Now, if we could get a Christian president that would actually participate in the march… That would be awesome. Grr, only one more year and I can vote…

        LoL, if a Christian president went on the March, that would have to go on the news.

        Definitely. Unless the media wants to ignore the president, and that wouldn’t work out very well.

    I was there last year. I didn’t get to go this year 😦 I missed the archdiocese pilgrimage cutoff date and couldn’t afford to take myself there on my own. I was with all the marchers in spirit, though.

      AM. Present tense. Sorry. I am with all the marchers, in spirit.

        Well I’d say it’s very impressive that you went last year, considering all the snow! And I’m sure you are with us in spirit. Sometimes being there with us in spirit can mean a lot more than being physically present but not having your heart in it. Thanks for the comments and the follow!

        It was fun, even with the snow and subsequent frozen toes. We met up with a group from Richmond to take a charter bus into D.C., and there was a Rosary beforehand and coffee afterwards. We even got to go to the Smithsonian! 😀 I would have loved to see some of the other places, and we got to go to the Holocaust museum later in the week, but other than that… It would be nice to spend a while longer in DC, and I wish I could’ve gone this year. (Iris, over at irisbloomsblog.wordpress.com, was there. I didn’t see her in the photos you posted, and there were so many marchers you probably didn’t see her, but she got to go and I’m kind of jealous.
        You’re welcome. 🙂 Network building. 😉

    I’ve just read this post (I’m late). I didn’t know there was something like this. Instead, I often read news of abortion right promotion.

      Aul responded:
      February 7, 2015 at 5:06 PM

      Well now you know! And I’m not surprised. That’s the way things work. Only things the government promotes get posted by the media and news networks.

        But I thought your government promoted anti-abortion then some people advocated abortion right.

        Aul responded:
        February 8, 2015 at 6:31 AM

        Nooo, the March for Life is a protest against abortion, which our government advocates. I apologize if i didn’t make that clear.
