Annual March for Life in Washington, D.C.

Today, hundreds of thousands will gather in Washington, D.C. for the annual March for Life, commemorating the 33rd anniversary of the Supreme Court's tragic and ill-reasoned decision in Roe v. Wade.

Though I have attended numerous Marches for Life, perhaps the most memorable was five years ago in 2001. In addition to being my first March for Life, that year's March also permitted me to attend the inauguration of President George W. Bush, a man I voted for and whose presidency I awaited with great hope.

Much has happened in the past five years, and all of my hopes for the Bush presidency have certainly not been realized. Nevertheless, with the confirmation of Chief Justice John Roberts and with the coming confirmation of Justice Samuel Alito, I believe that the President has done a real benefit to the pro-life movement and I expect to see a shift in the Supreme Court's abortion jurisprudence in the coming years.

Let us continue to fight in defense of the unborn and in recognition of the inherent dignity of all human life. We must not let the confirmation of Justices Roberts and Alito become the high-water mark of the pro-life movement. Instead, we must continue to advance the cause of life and truly bring about a Culture of Life.
