In Phoenix, an estimated 5,000 foes of legalized abortion marched two miles Jan. 21 to a rally near the Arizona Supreme Court. The Diocese of Fargo, N.D., observed the anniversary by designating Jan. 21 Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Fargo Bishop James S. Sulli- van celebrated Mass at Sts. Anne and Joachim Parish in Fargo, and parishes chimed their church bells 23 times or lit 23 candles to symbolize the # 23 years since the 1973 Supreme Court decision. At St. Patrick Cathedral in Fort Worth, Texas, Bishop Joseph P. Delaney contrasted the light of Christ with the darkness of evil in his homily at a Jan. 19 Sanctity of Life Mass. He told the more than 200 Catholics present that the ulti- mate evil is the total disrespect of God's greatest gift, human life. He said such disrespect is evident today in countless wars, savagery and the en- slavement of human beings, as well as in abortion. On Jan. 13, Bishop Donald W. Trautman of Erie, Pa., ad- dressed the 18th ecumenical Pro-life Prayer Breakfast at St. Peter Cathedral Center before the annual March for Life through downtown Erie. "Abortion is not just one more issue," he said. "Abortion is fundamental to all the other issues. The right to life comes before the right to be well- housed, well-educated and well-fed." Keynote speaker Kathie Migliaccio, a parishioner at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Corry, Pa., drew on her long experience as the adoptive mother of nearly 20 children, many of whom have special needs. Four of her children with Down syndrome attend regular classes at the parish school. "They aren't takers," she said. "These kids are with regular kids and they learn how to be regular kids. They learn how to do for the community." In the greater Cincinnati KNIGHT & SONS MONUMENT CO. Established in 1877 320 N.

(F.rclu.iee ('orA, ia Mlrble Dezh!r.hip /br Vand,'rburk" and Warrick County.) area, national marchers partic- ipated in send-off rallies before leaving for Washington. At St. John Church in Maria Stein, Ohio, one rally was combined with a memorial service for a pro-life worker who had died in a car crash. Members of the Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati gathered for witness and prayer Jan. 22 outside four area abortion cen- ters. Prayer vigils were held at a number of county court- houses, and an overnight vigil took place at St. Louis Church in North Star, Ohio. At the annual Pro-life Memo- rial Service Jan. 21 at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, in Ohio, Matt Chaterdon, the student presi- dent of the university's pro-life organization, addressed a crowd of 150. He urged them to stand in for unborn babies as their pro- tectors, to stand up to a society that permits such killing to continue, and to stand out as concerned citizens of this na- tion. On the eve of the march in Washington, the "Jane Roe" of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in 1973 addressed 1,000 pro-life supporters at a memorial service at George- town University. Norma McCorvey, who had promoted abortion rights for more than 20 years, said she was baptized as a born-again Christian last August. During the Georgetown ser- vice, sponsored by the National Clergy Council, Ms. McCorvey asked for forgiveness. "I thought I was doing something right," she said. "I didn't think I would be sentencing innocent children to a senseless death." She was referring to her re- cruitment by Sarah Wedding- ton, the lawyer who repre- sented "Jane Roe" in the 1973 case. In addition to hosting vigil and morning Masses before the Washington march, the Basil- ica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception also had a sleep-over. According to Gregmh, Tucker, director of public relations for the shrine, "the largest crowd yet" took up all the available floor space in the side chapels and Memorial Hall on the shrine's lower level the night before the march.
