San Antonians head for Austin Pro-life Rally after concluding their Roe v. Wade anniversary observance with a Rosary Procession and Mass for Life.

Marking the 38th anniversary of the United States Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, the Archdiocese of San Antonio will commemorate the event with prayer and action. On January 22, 1973, Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in the United States. Since then, more than 50 million unborn children have been aborted in the United States.

The archdiocese will commemorate the event on Saturday, January 22, with a Memorial Mass for Life at 8 a.m. at St. Mary Magdalen Parish, 1710 Clower, San Antonio 78201,celebrated by Auxiliary Bishop Oscar Cantķ, Father Will Combs from St. MaryMagdalen, and other priests and deacons. A peaceful rosary procession will begin at 9:30 a.m. from in front of the church, proceed to Planned Parenthood on Babcock Road, and return to the church. A rosary will be recited during the march and in front of Planned Parenthood. The procession will return to thechurch at approximately 11 a.m.

Following the Mass an archdiocesan sponsored tour bus (along with two others) will leave for the Texas Rally for Life. The rally, scheduled to be held in Austin, will begin with a march on the streets surrounding the capitol building at 1 p.m. and continue with a rally at 2 p.m. on the south steps of the State Capitol. Governor Rick Perry and Bishop Joe Vasquez from Austin will be among the featured speakers. San Antonians will be holding banners and signs proclaiming “San Antonio Chooses Life.” For more information on the Rally for Life, visit their website at www.texasrallyforlife.org <http://www.texasrallyforlife.org> .

Rick Doucette, Director of the archdiocese’s Pro-life office, called for a continuedrebirth of efforts for life here in San Antonio, “...rededicatingourselves to the pro-life message and pro-life programs. The sanctity of life is still under attack, especially by those who would include abortion funding and other anti-life provisions in the healthcare bill which is now the law of the land. Our Mass and prayerful march will demonstrate to San Antonians our unwavering commitment to the sanctity and protection of life.”

This week, the Archdiocese of San Antonio joins in spirit with those who are pro-life across the nation in raising the awareness of the tragedy of abortion and the compelling need to continue the struggle of building a culture that respects the human dignity of every human person, from the moment of conception to natural death.

As far as I'm concerned, the Church is a little too late to speak out. Had all Catholics voted for pro-life officials that are currently (and in the past) hold office in D.C., we may not have to be marching and/or sending red ... More ›
