Several dozen members of Jesuit High School’s Pro-Life Club once again traveled to Washington, D.C. this year on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling to support the rights of the unborn at the March for Life.
Led by school president Fr. Richard C. Hermes, S.J., the Jesuit students joined a few hundred thousand others on the afternoon of Jan. 22, the 43rd anniversary of the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling regarding abortion.
As part of the largest pro-life demonstration in the world, they walked from the National Mall to the steps of the Supreme Court. Click here to learn more about the March for Life at MarchforLife.org.
During their time in the D.C. area, the Jesuit contingent took part in many activities, including celebrating the Mass for the Unborn at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at Catholic University, and listening to lecturers at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, including Catholic author and social activist George Weigel.
