.- Fifteen college students participating in the American Life Leagueâs Crusade for Life held a peaceful demonstration in front of the office of two pro-abortion Catholic politicians â Rep. Nancy Pelosi and State Sen. Jackie Speier. The demonstration lasted all day Tuesday. "The Crusade for Life walk participants want to send a clear message to Rep. Nancy Pelosi that her outspoken support for abortion is diametrically opposed to the teachings of the Catholic faith," said David Dufresne, assistant director of American Life League's Crusade for the Defense of Our Catholic Church.
"Rep. Pelosi has a tremendous opportunity to make a difference for life as one of the most powerful Catholics in Congress,â said Dufresne. âUnfortunately, she has chosen to support the very act that destroys life rather than protect it."
The students from across the United States and Mexico have committed to walk more than 800 miles through the state of California. They arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area July 15 and will spend the rest of the week peacefully protesting in front of the offices of known pro-abortion Catholic politicians, praying in front of 15 abortion clinics, and speaking at Catholic churches.
