"There are a variety of reasons for this, as diverse as youth themselves. I want to invite youth to examine their patterns of intimacy: what is life-giving and what is not? What patterns can lead to healthy intimacy and which ones get t4 in the way." Z. Eppler said the day has been planned by the diocesan Youth Team members. Andie Maurer and John Silva from Sts.

"I missed two when I was pregnant," Mrs. Boyle said. "I never thought we would be doing it this many years," she said. "But the march shows the strength of the principle that we advocate, that the killing of babies has got to be outlawed. We're just not quit- ting until it is." She and her husband, a fam- ily doctor, have been involved in pro-life work for many years, she noted, and now their children "are all committed to pro-life." Last summer at a beach resort where they worked, two of her college-age children helped persuade an Irish girl who got pregnant not to get an abortion. "I'm hoping the Supreme Court will overthrow this awful curse on our nation," said Sister Patricia Maria Williams, a member of the Franciscan Handmaids of Mary who coordinates CCD at Resurrection Parish in Harlem.

In the background, loud- speakers from buses parked on 15th Street carried to marchers and nearby office workers alike a preacher's proclamations about the evils of abortion. Along the march route, pro- life activists tried to interest others in the work of their groups. Anne Murphy, a parishioner at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Massapequa Park, N.Y., dis- tributed information about the National Night of Prayer for Life. The Long Island woman said that last December 675 parishes in the United States and Canada participated in this "eucharistic adoration for life." The Rev. Mike Sterrik, pas- tor of an interdenominational church in Greenville, S.C., was trying to interest other pastors in a South CaroIina group called Pastors for Life, whose 300 members represent some 40 different churches or reli- gions.
