Abortion is a Human Rights Issue

Yesterday a sea of people braved the rain and mud and showed up in Washington D.C. to stand for the rights of the unborn. Among them were two GenJ clubs as well as GenJ students from Pennsylvania.

We stood out in the rain and cold hearing Speaker of the House John Boehner who said, “So I’ve never considered ‘pro-life’ to be a label or a position. It’s just who I am.”

Several congressmen including Chris Smith of New Jersey and Sean Duffy of Wisconsin talked about how the pro-life movement is a human rights movement and 39 years under Roe v. Wade has been 39 years when equal protection for unborn citizens has been ignored.

As I stood on Constitution Avenue and looked behind me, I saw a crowd of people stretching as far as I could see, and it gave me hope. The majority of people marching were young people. They cried out on behalf of their missing classmates. They are the ones passionate enough to come in the bad weather. They are the ones who are driven to see the end of abortion in America. They are the ones who will lead on this issue. It is inspiring.
