Pro-life group unwelcome at ‘Women’s March’

January 17, 2017

Organizers of a ‘Women’s March’ protesting the inauguration of Donald Trump have removed a pro-life group from the event’s list.

The New Wave Feminists, who oppose abortion, were struck from the list of sponsors because of outcries from abortion supporters who said that such groups should not be welcomed.

    They are probably afraid that the presence of pro-life groups would soften their anti-Trump vitriol. After all, Trump as President and Mike Pence as VP give hope to the restoration of respect for the dignity of human life.

    Students for Life, another pro-life organization based in Fredericksburg, VA, has also been ignored by the organizers of the so-called "Women's March". They intend to make their presence known; I'm bettin, however, that they will not be interviewed by the Washington Post, MSNBC...well, you get the idea.

    This march is clearly in support of abortion and Planned Parenthood. Should have been advertised as such at all our Churches.

    March anyway. Free speech still exists in this country whether they like it or not. Carry big signs and march in front and back of them. Pray loudly. Make them miserable.

    So, it's a "Women's March" but women can't march. There is no clearer testimonial to the idiocy of the left, and no clearer forecast of the threat they represent to our freedom and God-given rights.
