PRLog - Jan. 13, 2012 - FRONT ROYAL, Va. -- For the fourth time in it's 34 year history, Christendom College has been selected to lead the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., carrying the main March for Life banner and flags.

"This is a great honor for us as a college," says Admissions Director Tom McFadden. "We have been cancelling classes on the day of the March every year since our founding in 1977, and traveling as an entire college community to witness to life on this tragic day.”

McFadden says that the college is thankful to Miss Nellie Gray and to the entire March for Life organization for selecting them to lead the hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers down the streets of D.C. on January 23.

“We are happy to be of service," he says.

Christendom students led the March for Life in 1984, 1998, and 2009, as well.

“I love the fact that our school closes for the March and we all caravan together to DC,” says Kelsey McCrum, a senior and President of Students for Life. “In a very tangible way the college community is able to experience fighting for life together.”

McCrum believes that the March is an important witness to the nation demonstrating the resolve of the pro-life movement.

“We will not remain silent while killing is legal in our country,” she says.

She also notes that the March is important for pro-lifers themselves.

“It is so encouraging each year to go and see thousands upon thousands of pro-lifers fill the city of DC. We know we are not alone and it gives motivation to the attendees to continue the pro-life work that we do in our respective cities,” McCrum says.

The theme of this year's March is “Unite on the Life Principles to Overturn Roe v. Wade and, With Love, Protect Mothers and Preborn Children. No Exception!  No Compromise!” The “life principles” refer to a comprehensive statement of the position motivating the pro-life movement and serve as the basis for pro-life moral and legal theory by which the American people can overturn Roe v. Wade.

The college has attended the March for Life as a community every year since the school was founded over 30 years ago. Its students are active in pro-life work year round, leading prayerful protests at a Planned Parenthood Clinic in Washington once a week, as well as taking part in sidewalk counseling and other pro-life activities.
