MARCH  FOR  LIFE  2011 - WASHINGTON DC

 

On the 24th March 2011 as Director of the Thomas More Legal Centre I had the privilege of attending the 2011 MARCH FOR LIFE held each year in Washington to "Commemorate" the disgraceful decision in Roe v Wade when the US Supreme Court legalised Abortion accross the United States contrary to laws freely passed by democratically elected legislatures.  It was one of the first and arguably the worst of the decisions by various Courts in the West which runs the danger of replacing the Rule of Law with the Rule of Lawyers.

 

Despite the cold weather the march attracted some 200,000 people many of whom had travelled long distances to attend.  The vast majority  were lively, intelligent, articulate young people who clearly understood the moral (or should I say immoral ) issues involved in the killing of the unborn.  I took these pictures to give a brief impression of this event which made a deep impression on me. - Neil Addison
