Some thoughts on the 2009 March for Life

Some pictures from today's march.  The last one is my grandson standing in
front of the Supreme Court.  Together with my oldest son, we attended,
preparing the next generations to continue the fight.
Thoughts about the march:

Just two days ago, the 44th president of the United States took the oath of
office.  Even though he claims to be a Christian, in my
opinion, he perjured himself while taking that oath on Jan 20th.  

When he swore to: "... faithfully execute the office of President of the
United States, and ... to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and
defend the Constitution of the United States", he forgot the part about
"...all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the
pursuit of Happiness", words from our Declaration of Independence.

There was another huge turnout for the march, more than 200,000+
people, but there will more than likely be nothing reported on the news
[this was confirmed with a news blackout embargo by the drive-by medai 
of any pro-life news  with the exception of Fox News].  

The march started around 2 PM, with the Supreme Court building being the
final destination.

The main entrance to the Supreme Court Building faces the United States
Capitol. A few low steps lead up to the 252-foot-wide oval plaza in front of
the building. Sixteen marble columns at the main west entrance support the
pediment. On the architrave above is incised "Equal Justice Under Law"
(paragraph taken from Supreme Court web site description of the building).

When the marchers approached the Supreme Court building, roses were handed
out. Those who took them laid them at the steps of the highest court in the
land.  The red of the roses reminded me of the pictures I had taken earlier
in the day.  The blood-red mutilated bodies of the innocents murdered
because they were inconvenient or unwanted somehow were laid to rest, the
roses a reminder, their blood on the hands of those entrusted to give Equal
Justice to all.

After the inauguration of Mr. Obama, I can't help feeling a sense of loss.
A decent Christian gentleman has been replaced by a pro-abvortion thug, one intent on
pandering to every interest group to whom he is beholden for his election.  With
FOCA and PFA looming, the pro-life side looks to be poorly represented, but with God
'all things are possible'.

As I was leaving the march area, the last sign I saw had an image of an
unborn child with the very powerful words from Jeremiah 1:5 on it: "Before
I formed you in the womb I knew you".  

How can we take the lives of innocents that God already knows?
