"On the 33rd anniversary of the Supreme Court's infamous Roe v. Wade decision, the 33rd annual March for Life begins at Noon, Monday, January, 23, 2006," announced Nellie Gray, president, March for Life Fund. Gray said that thousands of pro-life Americans will rally at the Mall and 7th Street for a program, and then March for Life along Constitution Avenue to the Supreme Court and Congress.
"The March for Life is a peaceful demonstration -- an annual reminder to all of Washington officialdom that it must overturn Roe v. Wade which decriminalized the intentional killing of a pre-born human. The Supreme Court cannot, and did not, legalize the killing of pre-borns. But Roe v. Wade did unleash on our beloved country the feminists/abortionist' evil agenda of 'choice' to kill pre-born humans, and did begin the slippery slope to decriminalize infanticide, euthanasia, assisted suicide, fetal research and more evil. History records our own lamentable experience with slavery and our seeing the Nazi slippery slope from so-called 1935 Nuremberg laws, through years of 'final solution' horrors, to reality of accountable at Nuremberg Trials," Gray said.
"President Bush is invited," Gray said. "We pledge support to stop this home-grown terrorism of persons and public and private officials participating in the intentional killing of an estimated 4,000 preborn humans each day."
It is expected that some Members of Congress and others will speak at the rally, including: Sen. Sam Brownback, and Rep. Christopher H. Smith (R-N.J.), Jeff Fortenbury, (R-Neb.), W. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), Todd Tiahart (R-Kan.), Steve Chabot (R-Ohio), Melissa Hart (R-Pa.), Mike Pence (R-Ind.), Steve King (R-Iowa), Mike Fergerson (R-N.J.), Scott Garrett (R- N.J.), and Jeanne Schmidt (R-Ohio).
The theme of this 33rd annual March for Life is: Roe v. Wade Violates the American Way.
"The State or a Person Can Never Justify the Intentional Killing of an Innocent Born or Pre-born Human in Existence at Fertilization. No Exception! No Compromise! We are calling for Americans to unify on goals and strategies to overturn Roe v. Wade, and replace it with the Life Principles. This means providing Constitutional protection for the unalienable right to life of each pre-born and born human in existence at fertilization. Murder is not a feminist/abortionist's right of 'privacy'.
"Yet, tragically, each American lives side-by-side with the slaughter of an estimated 4,000 pre-borns each day who are not even buried in graves. And, America suffers the massacre of an estimated 48,000,000 pre-born humans and their children's children due to Roe v. Wade. Feminists/abortionists cover up this horror and shame of innocent blood, clearly showing that abortion can never be respectable. Therefore, it is the responsibility of our federal government -- not individual states -- to provide for the general welfare and stop the intentional killing of even one innocent born or pre- born human in our country. No Exception! No Compromise!"
