Pro-lifers offer largely silent witness at March for Women's Lives
Published: April 26, 2004
WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Vastly outnumbered by the hundreds of thousands taking part in the April 25 March for Women's Lives in Washington, pro-life groups conducted a largely silent witness along the march route. Even the group Silent No More Awareness, which urges its members to speak publicly about their abortions, decided to stay quiet at its locations along the route of those marching to keep abortion legal. "Today we're being silent," said Georgette Forney, the group's co-founder. "It won't do any good to engage them. This is not the forum." About 90 people, including many members of American Collegians for Life, lined one sidewalk near the start of the march route bearing signs and wearing T-shirts with a pro-life message.
