Few have ever stated better the meaning of the annual March for Life in the nation’s capital than the late, great, Michael Novak, 1994 recipient of the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion.

Here is his article from 1993, less than one year after the betrayal of innocents by Anthony Kennedy and a majority of the US Supreme Court in the pitiful decision of Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

Read it slowly and with sorrow. And with pride. Future generations will recognize the moral courage of those who march and who affirm the truth that even Dr. Seuss knew: “A person is a person, no matter how small.”

Today the March continues in Washington DC and in the hearts of every decent man and woman. For the innocents we pray, may they rest in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no more pain, no suffering, no grief, but everlasting life.
