Close to three hundred pro-life teens and adults met August 18 at Montebello Park in St. Catharines, Ontario for a peaceful rally and walk.
Speakers at the rally, organized by Matthew Saranchuk, president of Niagara Youth for Life, included St. Catharines Mayor Joe McCaffery, Joseph Scheidler, executive director of the Chicago-based Pro-Life Action League, Fr. Ted Colleton, and Marilyn Bergeron, president of Alliance for Life.
“All across Canada, teenagers are uniting to form pro-life youth groups,” said Mr. Saranchuk. “They are a start of a new generation that will embrace the value of life and rescue the future by saving the unborn.”
Mr. Scheidler called abortion, “legal selfishness that not only destroys the baby and women’s spirit but also their past and future.” He urged pro-lifers to persevere because, “God is on our side and in the end we will win, for our God is a God of victory.”
