ND faculty, staff, students March for Life

Yesterday 380 students and 40 Notre Dame faculty and staff members (including all the staff of the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture) marched in our nation's capitol to demonstrate against legal abortion in the United States and to witness to the sanctity of all human life. It was incredible to see the spirit and optimism of the hundreds of thousands of marchers from all over the United States (plus Canada and Germany, judging by the flags). We marched peacefully from the National Mall to the Supreme Court to mark the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that opened the doors to permissive abortion laws for all fifty states. People of all ages and religious commitments participated in the march, and the Notre Dame contingent included undergraduate and graduate students, alumni, professors from several different departments and colleges, staff members, and University President, Fr. John Jenkins, CSC. Here are some pictures from the March for Life.
