2 weeks ago on the Anniversary of the decision of Roe v. Wade, thousands of pro life supporters took to Washington to express their distaste of the unborn genocide that is plaguing America. For the first time in the March for Life’s history a Vice President addressed the rally. “In a word, life is winning in America because of all of you,” Mike Pence said addressing the crowd. A large portion of the crowd consisted of young people. Including some from Catholic Schools all over the country. Among these teenagers was also the MCTARS
MCTARS had 6 members attend the March. We marched from the Washington Monument grounds to the Supreme Court. Some members made custom signs which prompted several people in the March to stop and take pictures of them. “We have to value all life in our society” A member of the Walter Johnson High School TARS said. The March was a wonderful experience filled with many people of different backgrounds and beliefs coming together to protest against one of the greatest injustices that plague our country.
After reaching the Supreme Court the march began to disperse. So we headed to Union Station to make our way back home. As we were walking back the locals made their opinions clear to us. We received several obscene hand gestures and occasional rude comments. However this was all expected in a city that voted 91% for Hillary Clinton and only 4% for President Trump. Perhaps they are so vocal because they know the bubble of globalism they live in is threatened by President Trump?
More and more people young people are supporting the pro life movement a survey in June 2016 found that 53% of Millennials think abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances. With Donald Trump elected things are looking up for the pro life generation and the MCTARS will proudly continue to be in this movement.
