.- 12  pro-life Catholic college students walking from Maine to D.C. as part of the American Life League's “Summer Crusade for Life,” arrived in New York state, and are planning demonstrations in key New York areas. This Saturday, July 10, beginning at 8:30 a.m., the walkers will conduct a march from Brooklyn to the Bronx that will include stops outside six abortion clinics along the way-including the nation's second largest abortion clinic in Manhattan.

"In a city that has experienced so much sorrow and loss of innocent human life in recent times, we feel it is important that women know the truth about abortion. It is not their only option, and it always results in at least two casualties: the mother and her child," said Emily Bissonnette, a Crusade walker and a senior at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio.

"This march will give us the opportunity to affirm the two basic tenets of our effort: the hidden reality of the child in the womb and the hidden reality of Christ truly present in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist," she added.

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 Catholic bishops in the United States to enforce Church law (Canon 915) and bar all known pro-abortion "Catholic" public figures from receiving Holy Communion until they publicly recant their public support for the "grave moral evil" of abortion and return to communion with the Church through the sacrament of Penance.
