.- Thousands of people from across the United States are expected to converge on Washington DC Aug. 18 to rally for family rights. Activists at the rally are trying to raise support for children who have been the victims of no-fault divorce which can cause them to lose of one of their parents.

Many of the participants will be non-custodial parents, whose children were forcibly taken from them through no-fault divorce, says rally speaker Michael Ross. Ross is president of the Family Rights Coalition of Michigan and is a member of the Knights of Columbus.

Michael McManus, president of Marriage Savers and an ethics and religion columnist, will address the rally on Sunday. McManus says that with the availability of unilateral no-fault divorce, dedicated and innocent spouses lost their negotiating power that had enabled them to keep custody of children and control the support due from an abandoner.

McManus points out that the Catholic bishops could lead all clergy, both Protestant and Catholic, in the fight for needed reforms regarding the family and no-fault divorce.
