Statement Along Highway 101

Janet Flatley of the Respect Life Committee of Queen of Angels Parish in Port Angeles was kind enough to share what her local pro-life group--Port Angeles Human Life of Washington, an affiliate of National Right to Life--did this past weekend: they "planted" 380 crosses on a most visible part of the main (and only) highway in and out of the region.

The colored photos appeared on the front page of the Port Angeles regional newspaper (covers 2 counties on the northern Olympic Peninsula). The caption said: "STATEMENT ALONG THE HIGHWAY - Wooden crosses and a series of signs line a portion of the U.S. Highway 101 right of way near Deer Park Road east of Port Angeles on Monday, a day after the 33rd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the case of Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion. The anti-abortion group Port Angeles Human Life said the 380 crosses represent 10 percent of abortions performed daily in the United States."

This group also organized a contingent of 78 people from Queen of Angels Parish, Port Angeles, to travel 2 1/2 hrs. to state house in Olympia for March for Life.
