Pro-Life Walkers regret denial to speak at Philadelphia parishes

.- A group of pro-life youth, walking through the Eastern United States in the American Life League's Summer Crusade for Life, will arrive in Philadelphia this week, but the archdiocese has forbade them from speaking at masses in local parishes.

In a recent Philadelphia Inquirer article, archdiocesan spokesperson Catherine Rossi said it would be "inappropriate" for the students to speak at masses.

The young college students decided to trek across the Eastern United States this summer to raise awareness about pro-life issues and demonstrate against abortion.

While in Philadelphia, however, the young people plan to pray at local abortion clinics, meet with Catholic public figures and speak to Catholics in their homes and other venues.

The Summer Crusade for Life is part of American Life League's Crusade for the Defense of Our Catholic Church, an effort launched in January 2003.

American Life League is calling on all bishops in the United States to enforce Church law and forbid all known pro-abortion "Catholic" public figures from receiving Communion.
