Schiavo's family to be honored at March for Life

.- The annual March for Life will mark the 33rd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion. The Jan. 23 event will begin with an ecumenical prayer service in the Senate Caucus Room of the Russell Building at 8:30 a.m., led by Fr. Frank Pavone, director of Priests for Life.

All U.S. dioceses are also called to observe Monday as a day of penance and prayer for violations to the dignity of human life through acts of abortion and for full restoration of legal guarantees of the right to life.

Fr. Pavone will present a Pro-life Recognition Award to the family of Terri Schiavo for their efforts to defend Terri's life. He will also present an award to pro-life senator Sam Brownback of Kansas.

A Silent No More Awareness gathering will be held after the march at 4 p.m. at the Supreme Court building, where women will share publicly their pain and healing after abortion. The Silent No More Awareness Campaign Web site has a listing of other locations across the country where similar gatherings are planned.
