Pro-Life Unity was on-site at the Maryland March for Life yesterday, March 9th, 2009. Our news wing, ProLifeNews.tv broadcasted live from St. Mary's Church starting from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm. I got plenty of interviews with people who showed up for this event, including Rep. Don Dweyer, Pastor Luke Robinson, Bishop Harry Jackson, David Bereit, Senator Andy Harris, Representative Don Dwyer and many more.
Pro-Life Unity was a sponsor for the event and of course endorsed and promoted it. Click here to read more about the other sponsors and the event.
At about 6:40 pm hundreds of people who were gathered at St. Mary's Church started the march for the State House in Annapolis, Maryland. By the time everybody got to the rally at the State House, some say there were as many as 1,500 people participating. I could hear the cheers of the people from a block away as I made my way from my car. No, I couldn't march with everybody else, I had too much equipment, & well, I have crutches, so the combination of the two make things a little too difficult to march for very long!
When I got to the State House the event was well under way. Speakers were there from different organizations, as were many Pro-Life representatives from the Maryland government. With the help of Bill Simpson, I squeezed my way through the crowd and set up the camera to film the speakers, and then I wiggled out to do some more interviews with the other camera and get some footage from the side.
Then it was back to St. Mary’s for refreshments and to check out the booths from the various Pro-Life organizations, like Rock for Life, American Life League, National Pro-Life Radio, Defend Life and more. I spoke with and interviewed Bishop Harry Jackson there along with a few others.
The crowd really was large this year. Was it the weather, which was around 65 degrees? I don’t think so, but I’m sure it helped. I think people are seeing Obama’s policies of death and many people are ready to stand up for those who cannot defend themselves.
How about you? Are you ready?
