VOLUME 41 │ NUMBER 4 │ JAN. 24, 2023
In a post-Roe nation, is there still a need for pro-life activism? Perhaps now more than ever. Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly and other Supreme Officers, thousands of Knights and their families, and tens of thousands of other Americans showed up in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Jan. 20, for the 50th annual March for Life, the first since the overturning of Roe v. Wade. At the joyful Life Fest celebration Friday morning, attended by more than 4,000 young people, and on the streets of the capital throughout the march, pro-lifers affirmed their commitment to supporting mothers and babies and protecting the inherent dignity of all human life.

‘Love is the Answer’Thousands of pro-life advocates filled the D.C. Entertainment and Sports Arena before the March for Life in Washington on Jan. 20 for Life Fest, an event co-sponsored by the Sisters of Life and the Knights of Columbus. The rally’s theme, “Because Love is the Answer,” highlighted the importance of seeing the pro-life cause as more than a legal battle.“In the wake of the recent Dobbs decision, we see a profound opportunity to build the culture of life in a new way,” Sister Maris Stella of the Sisters of Life explained. “We want to serve the Church in her most urgent need — that of the cause of human life, sharing the good news of God’s plan for life and love.” READ MORE
 Consistency and Consensus: Americans Support Abortion LimitsA new Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll shows that 71% of Americans support legal limits on abortion. The survey, conducted by the Marist Poll and commissioned annually by the Knights of Columbus for more than a decade, found that a majority of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, and 81% of Americans believe laws can protect both the mother and her unborn child.“When it comes to the direction of government policy, there has been consistency and consensus in American public opinion on the issue of abortion over the decades,” explained Dr. Barbara Carvalho, director of the Marist Poll. READ MORE | VIEW POLL PRESENTATION
