Brother of Terri Schindler-Schiavo Special Guest at 27th Annual Maryland Candlelight March for Life

.- Bobby Schindler, Brother of Terri Schiavo will be the special guest at the 27th annual  Maryland Candlelight March for Life that is to take place today in the evening in Annapolis.

He will represent the Schindler family at Monday’s event. Terri’s parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, were also scheduled to attend, but cannot due to illness. The event is titled: A New Vision to the Future: Maryland Without Roe, is expected to draw a large crowd of pro-lifers from around the metro area who will march through the streets of Annapolis.

“It is truly an honor to have the Schindler family represented at this year’s event. As we approach the first anniversary of the medical killing of Terri Schindler-Schiavo, I believe it is important that we honor her memory by renewing our resolve to protect the most vulnerable in our society—from conception to natural death,” said Stephen G. Peroutka, Esq., a Maryland attorney and chairman of the National Pro-Life Action Center (NPLAC). “Abortion and euthanasia both involve the intentional killing of an innocent human being and are anathema to the underpinnings of a civilized society. I believe Roe’s days are numbered and that we will see its reversal in the near future, but we must also continue to advance the cause of the disabled and infirmed.”

Peroutka will serve as the keynote speaker for the Maryland Candlelight March for Life on Monday, March 6, in Annapolis, Md. The event, titled, A New Vision to the Future: Maryland Without Roe, is expected to draw a large crowd of pro-lifers from around the metro area who will march through the streets of Annapolis to Lawyer’s Mall at the Statehouse. “The Schindlers are an inspiration to all who value and defend the sanctity of human life, and we are privileged to have them at our event,” said Paul S. Mulligan, a pro-life leader in Maryland and one of the event’s main organizers.

Many groups and pro-life associations as well as Church authorities are scheduled to participate in the march such as Archdiocese of Baltimore; Archdiocese of Washington; Charles County Right to Life; Christian Coalition of Maryland; Defend Life; Knights of Columbus; Maryland Association of Families.


The march Begins at St. Mary’s Church -- 109 Duke of Gloucester Street; and will head towards the Annapolis State House.
