Colorado 2013 March for Life

40 Years After, 150 Years After, 9 Days After

DENVER, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Colorado Right To Life notes that this Sunday's March for Life in Denver is forty years after the infamous Roe v. Wade opinion, 150 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, and nine days after the Alabama Supreme Court unanimously held that the word "child" in a state child abuse law applies equally to an unborn child.

This Sunday, January 20, at 12:30 p.m., CRTL is hosting our annual March for Life on the west steps of the state capitol. Abortion is wrong because it's a baby, and it's always wrong to intentionally kill an innocent baby. Historically, the media, government officials, and many institutions despised those who fought for abolition of slavery, and in Germany, for equal treatment under law for Jews. Today, mainstream journalists, politicians, and our state institutions despise those who fight for the personhood and right to life of every innocent human being, no matter how small. "God and historians will judge today's anti-human rights coalition of 'pro-choicers' as harshly as they judge the slave traders and racists of the past," said Biff Gore, president of CRTL.

We are encouraged by Alabama's life affirming ruling this month acknowledging what everyone should realize, that a baby in the womb is as precious and deserving of protection as a baby out of the womb. Meanwhile, "More than 50 million children have been dismembered in the forty years since the crime against humanity known as the Roe opinion," said CRTL spokesman Gregg Jackson, "whereas those who advocate the continued dismemberment of unborn children do so at the peril of their eternal soul." And it's been 150 years this month since the Emancipation Proclamation, which event Colorado's biggest newspaper then used, ironically, to mock and condemn those advocating for abolition of slavery ( Colorado's media have not changed.

Speakers include spokesmen and spokeswomen from Colorado Right To Life, American RTL, Priests for Life, Personhood USA, Personhood Colorado, and Silent No More including Gualberto Garcia Jones, Jane Brennan, Gregg Jackson, Julie Averill, Rev. Rocco Porter, Rev. Scott Daniels, Rev. Michael Walker, and Rev. Walter Hoye. And with the Tebow-less Broncos losing their playoff game, there will be no Denver schedule conflict.
