March for Life 2008

On Tuesday January 22 2008 Crossroads gathered with 225,000 others to commemorate the anniversary of the infamous 1973 Roe v.Wade Supreme Court decision. This year marked the 35th year that the March for Life took place. Each year the March has grown in size and popularity, especially among the youth of today who, more and more, are truly Pro-Life.

Volunteers came from across the country to help Crossroads get its message to as many hungry Pro-Lifers as possible. Crossroads had booths at conferences throughout the city, including the Cardinal O’Connor Conference, the March for Life Conference and the Students for Life Conference. On the morning of the March itself Crossroads was able to distribute roughly 40,000 pieces of prolife literature including the extremely popular Pro-life stickers to roughly 60,000 youth who poured from the Verizon Center in Downtown Washington DC who had been inspired by a youth mass and rally. This enthusiastic mob of young Pro-Lifers teemed into the streets shouting prolife chants and singing songs as they headed a few blocks away to join the march.

Throughout the march Crossroads representatives passed out information about our annual cross-country walks as well as information about the newly launched www.ProLifeInternet.com Over all the whole weekend was an amazing success and inspirational for all involved.
