USCCB mourns passing of Nellie Gray

Catholic World News - August 16, 2012

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has issued a statement mourning the death of Nellie Gray, the organizer of the March for Life and a convert to Catholicism.

Deirdre McQuade, spokeswoman for the USCCB’s Pro-Life Secretariat, said that Gray

devoted herself to the legal protection of the unborn without exception. Through the March for Life, she mobilized millions to protest the injustice of Roe v. Wade and to speak out on behalf of unborn children, who have no voice of their own. While Miss Gray did not see Roe overturned in her lifetime, the movement she helped build – especially its young members – will not rest until the right to life is restored once again. May the angels lead her into paradise!
