St. Francis de Sales in Atlanta Marches for Life

The annual March for Life began as a small demonstration against abortion and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision every year, since 1973, is a witness to the truth concerning inviolability of unborn human life.

For 2015, Fr. Matthew McCarthy, FSSP, pastor of St. Francis de Sales in Atlanta, along with dozens of parishioners, joined in a march to the statehouse in downtown Atlanta. Sadly, they were met by hostile protesters, who hurled insults at the group and accosted them along their way for their witness of the right to life of unborn humans. This shocking behavior only served to increase the resolve of the marchers and to highlight the great importance that the prince of darkness places on preserving and increasing the horrific slaughter of those most innocent and helpless among us.
