Host Kathleen Beckman dialogues with Diane Dudenhoefer who will be reporting on the 2015 Washington DC March for Life where approximately 600, 000 pro-lifers gathered on Jan. 22, 2015. Diane experienced the DC March for Life together with her Bishop and 7 busloads of Catholics from her diocese in Ohio. She shares the many graces they received and conveys great hope in the courageous young generation of Catholic pro-lifers.
On January 22nd, hundreds of thousands of pro-life people, mostly young adults, will come to Washington D.C. to March for Life as we protest Roe v. Wade. Every year since abortion was legalized, pro-lifers have marched to let Congress, the Supreme Court, and the nation know that Americans support life. January is not the ideal month for standing in the cold for hours, so everyone bundles up and somehow that day seems to be one of the coldest and rainiest of the year. In spite of the weather, we still March making great sacrifices because the unborn need a voice. Join us for LIVE coverage leading up to the March and Thursday throughout the day.
Also, Join with your Radio Maria Family in the Novena …For the conversion of all hearts and the end to abortion. http://www.usccb.org/
Pictures from Radio Maria’s coverage of the 2014 March for Life – Members of our Radio Maria Family:
Alan Parker is the attorney president of San Antonio based The Justice Foundation (TJF) offering free legal representation to those whose fundamental freedoms and rights are being threatened. He serves as the lead legal counsel for Norma McCorvey (“Jane Roe” of Roe vs Wade) and Sandra Cano (“Mary Doe” of Doe vs Bolton) and is advancing the Culture of Life in America in a variety of ways, including fighting for parents rights in the education of their children.
TJF’s “Center Against Forced Abortion” offers letters to parents, fathers, and abortionists to discourage forcing or coercing girls into having an abortion. These have saved thousands of lives and can be used by you to give to a minor girl, her parents, teachers/counselors/pastors or anyone who may try to convince her to abort. She alone has the right to choose; that’s the law. The letters are available at www.TheJusticeFoundation.org.
I also expect to ask Alan about the future of abortion in America. With tougher restrictions becoming increasingly common, we are seeing more abortion facilities close each month. Are we really winning the fight for LIFE?
Another TJF project is collecting the testimonies of aborted women who wish they had NOT aborted their son or daughter. These powerful human stories are being used to convince legislators and voters that abortion should not be an option because it causes depression, grief, regret, suicide, and severe health problems for the mothers–and of course, killS their children.
David Bereit, national director of 40 Days for Life, joins us to discuss the closing of the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Bryan/College Station, Texas. He also gives the latest information on the 40 Days For Life campaigns around the world.
Sarah Zagorski of Louisiana Right to Life and NOLA Needs Peace talking about the fight against the new Planned Parenthood abortion facility planned for New Orleans.
This show had Rita Diller, national director of STOPP International as the guest. Topics discussed: details of Rita’s successful fight against Planned Parenthood in the Texas Panhandle; STOPP’s Bringing Jesus to Planned Parenthood through Mary campaign; and American Life League’s Novena to Mary, Mother of Life.
We are living in exciting times for the Culture of Life in America as we are seeing the abortion industry crumbling right before our eyes. Abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s conviction of murdering newborns and his sentence to life in prison without possibility of parole happened in large part because of the testimony of his own employees. That fact must be sending shivers up the spines of many abortionists.
His trial has also focused a very bright light on the abortion business, raising fundamental questions about the disjointed logic that allows an almost born infant to be killed with impunity, while holding a just born infant’s murder as murder. It’s all about location, location, location.
Kate Bryan is deep into “Live Action”–an organization that stings abortionists by visiting them, asking common sense questions, and secretly videotaping the ensuing Q&A! Live Action sting operations have placed Planned Parenthood in the sex-trafficking business and willing to abort babies because they were the “wrong” gender. Live Action is bringing the Culture of Life to America.

From a local prayer vigil at a Planned Parenthood abortuary in College Station Texas, Shawn Carney and David Bereit have built 40 Days for Life Campaigns into a massive baby-saving, abortion-worker-rescuing, abortuary-closing production line that has documented close to 6000 saved babies, 69 abortion-workers leaving, and several closed abortion mills. These campaigns have energized the pro-life movement with thousands of new volunteer prayers and workers. Please listen to learn more about how this movement began and developed to include 40 Days for Life campaigns in over 300 cities, 49 states, on four continents and 7 countries.
