As the California legislature celebrated abortion on demand this week to honor the 47th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we who value life in all its precious stages continued to pray for the end of abortion everywhere.
Right to Life of Kern County thanks the 50 volunteers who came together on January 18 to erect the beautiful and impactful Remembering Roe Memorial on the grounds of St. Philip the Apostle Church at 7100 Stockdale Hwy., where it will stand throughout the Sanctity of Human Life Week. The memorial will come down on Sunday, January 26.
Twenty-five hundred crosses plus one stand at the site – 2,300 to denote the number of preborn children lost to abortion each day in America, 200 pink and blue crosses representing the decline in abortions from last year, and a single 6-ft. cross representing the grace, mercy, and healing found at the foot of the cross for women and families impacted by abortion.
RTLKC thanks Sen. Shannon Grove and Assemblyman Vince Fong for their no votes on resolutions praising and promoting abortion in California. Assemblyman Rudy Salas, who co-authored the assembly measure, and Sen. Melissa Hurtado, voted in support.
