Tens of thousands of pro-life advocates went to the national March for Life this past weekend, but that should only be the beginning of a year-round witness to life, one pro-life leader says.
"The bishops call Catholics to witness to the beauty of life all year around," Deirdre McQuade, assistant director for pro-life communications at the U.S. Bishops' Secretariat on Pro-Life Activities, told CNA in an interview.
The March for Life "is a particular moment, but I encourage people to be energized by it," she said, calling on Catholics "to really take this beautiful vision of human life that we have and really invite others into it."
Friday marked the 44th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., the world's largest annual pro-life rally. Pro-life advocates from all over the country braved the cold winter weather to advocate for the protection of human life in the womb.
