This morning, my family took part in the Second Annual Louisiana Life March in Baton Rouge, our state capital. A very good number of pro-life supporters showed up for the event despite scattered showers. It was a very moving event that began at the old state capitol with a march. All of the people we encountered were friendly and courteous. It was wonderful to be part of a beautiful ecumenical effort.
There were speakers including Ben Clapper, the president of Louisiana right to Life, Senator David Vitter, a priest, a Baptist minister and an abortion victim who is now staunchly pro-life. It ended with a pink and blue balloon release on the new state capitol’s lawn.
