More than 800 students from Louisiana danced to the band Deep Space Network, heard an incredible testimony from post-abortive and former abortion clinic worker Jewels Green, watched the trailer for I Lived On Parker Avenue, and received education and advice on the abortion issue and campus activism in Louisiana. Unfortunately, more than 500 students from the New Orleans area who planned to attend the rally at the Washington Hilton were unable to do so because their travel to D.C. was delayed by icy roads and flight cancellations.
But the New Orleans-area students made it to Washington, D.C. in plenty of time to join the others from Louisiana at the annual March for Life. This amounted to about 1,500 students from Louisiana alone marching for life! Each group carried pro-life banners and signs and sang and chanted the whole way, including repeating “Hey hey, ho ho, Roe v. Wade has got to go!”
The Marching 100 from St. Augustine High School performed along the route, and several students from the Archdiocese of New Orleans carried Louisiana Right to Life’s large “Louisiana is Preaux Life” banner. Even though Roe v. Wade is a somber anniversary, each student from Louisiana marched joyfully as they celebrated the lives saved and their hope for ending abortion in their lifetime.
