March for Life Organizer Passes Away

The pro-life movement is mourning the death of one of its long-time leaders. Nellie Gray organized and orchestrated the annual March for Life every year in Washington, DC, since 1974. The March has been the most visible presence of the pro-life movement. Largely ignored by a biased, pro-abortion media, the March regularly attracted over a hundred-thousand people each year in the dead of winter. Many politicians and their staff have testified to the effectiveness of Nellie’s message. The pro-life movement is not going away until unborn babies are protected from abortion. Nellie was a good friend, and I’ll always remember her for her passion and tenacity on behalf of America’s most vulnerable citizens—unborn babies. This January, we’ll march and think of her.
