Over 500 students from university to travel to March for Life

.- Around midnight on January 24th, over 500 students from Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio will board charter busses and travel to Washington D.C. to commemorate the thirty-second anniversary of Roe vs. Wade.

The 1973 Supreme Court decision of Roe vs. Wade legalized abortion practices in the U.S.

According to the University, a pro-life vigil, presided by Bishop R. Daniel Colon of Steubenville will mark the start of student’s pro-life activities.

Upon their arrival in the nation’s capital, “the students will attend Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception then join thousands of participants for a rally at the Ellipse and the annual March for Life.”

The theme of this year’s March is “It Is the Duty of Each American to Uphold the Life Principles for the Common Good of Self, Neighbor, and County—No Exception! No Compromise!"

The events at Franciscan University are part of hundreds of vigils and rallies being held across the country to commemorate Roe vs. Wade’s anniversary.

It is estimated by the Priests for Life website, that over 44 million babies have been killed by abortions since the 1973 case was decided.
