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/

Steve Koob’s Guest for this program is Dr. Charles Kenney, PhD, founder and president of “The Right Brain People”. He was our Guest on the Quest two weeks ago when he described how he has used his research on the brain (left side reasoning, right side emotioning) to help over 400 of America’s most successful companies market their image and products. He has also applied these same skills to help the pro-life movement convince abortion vulnerable women to choose life. He is fascinating!
Steve and Dr. Kenny talk about the HHS Mandate requiring all health insurance to cover contraception, sterilization and abortion. They delve into the now fully “evolved” same sex “marriage” issue. Dr. Kenny also discusses his ideas for effectively confronting both of these threats to a well ordered society and a Culture of Life.
Francesca Franchina, MS Ed. talks with Mary Britt and Jenny Belokony of Dayton, OH about 40 DAYS FOR LIFE a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion. The mission of the campaign is to bring together the Body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 days of prayer, fasting, and peaceful activism, with the purpose of repentance, seeking God’s favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life to end tune in to see how you can participate in this great movement and the vigil to be held on abortion.
Ken talks with Abby Johnson, author of the bestseller UnPLANNED (published by Ignatius Press), and Shawn Carney who plays a significant role in Abby’s move from abortion clinic director to one of the most powerful voices in the ProLife movement. Abby worked for an abortion clinic for eight years, from 2001 to 2009, progressing from volunteer to clinic director. In October of 2009, after watching the witness and compassion of ProLife volunteers for those eight years, Abby literally “crossed over the fence” to join the ProLife movement. This is an amazing story of God’s grace and mercy.
