Over 7,000 Gather in Portland to Stand Against Roe v. Wade

Wow. These pictures are from a friend who attended Oregon Right to Life's annual Roe vs. Wade Memorial Rally in downtown Portland, Oregon.

"Take a look at these photos from yesteray's rally, where 7,000 pro-lifer's gathered. I think that might be me speaking. It's too far to tell. God provided the perfect sunny day and all the details went perfectly. The event started out with a moment of silence to commemorate the 50 million unborn babies lost to abortion since 1973. A loud recording of a giant bell ringing 50 times. Meanwhile, the stark contrast of angry pro-choicers yelled from across the street.

Dr. Rosenbloom, President of Oregon Right to Life pointed out that pro-life is the true movement of peace and one that is the most misunderstood because we are the most truly pro-woman than any other movement. It was a day sent from God"

And this note from VOCAL (Voice of Catholics Advocating Life) who supplied the photos.

Dear Advocates for Life,
History was made at Pioneer Courthouse Square this Sunday, when over seven-thousand cold, but warm hearted pro-lifers gathered for Oregon Right to Life's Annual Roe vs. Wade Memorial Rally.

There might not be any media coverage, so enjoy these pictures sent to me by Cheri Crocker of Salem. Gayle Atteberry, executive director of Oregon Right to Life, spoke to Christan News Northwest before the event: "We see God's sovereignty in this.....Our board made the decision that we wanted to make it bigger and take it to the heart of downtown Portland. They need the message of life more than any other city in the state of Oregon.

We made this decision early in the year, but in retrospect, with the results from the election, I'm happier than ever that we made it."Coming into Portland did bring a little confrontation, but this too was expected and showed stark contrast to what the saving the pre-born children is all about. Maybe hearing the speakers made a small conversion in their conscience.
One sign said "God is invisible"...held by a young woman...let's pray that she "saw" him in those at the rally.
