From Our Director
It has been AWESOME to see pro-lifers courageously stand for life this January, both in DC and across Louisiana. I am excited for this Saturday in Alexandria. As long as the weather holds it could be the largest pro-life gathering in our state's history! 
Our Director of Outreach, Pastor Brian Gunter, and Cenla Pregnancy Center's Claire Lemoine joined KALB's Morning Show in Alexandria to give a preview of the event and progress on the pregnancy center. Check it out!

Memorial for Unborn
New Prayer Garden Opens for Memorial

The 45th Memorial for the Unborn, an annual event commemorating those unborn lives lost to abortion since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, was held Jan. 22 at the new Holy Innocents Prayer Garden in St. Patrick No. 1 Cemetery in New Orleans. Archbishop Gregory Aymond led a blessing of the new memorial, followed by songs and scripture readings from Holy Name of Jesus students and attendees.

Families of children lost to abortion, miscarriage and other complications can memorialize their children by engraving their child's name in the new prayer garden. For more information, contact New Orleans Catholic Cemeteries at 504-596-3050.

Senate Fails to Protect
Unborn Babies Who Feel Pain

Thanks to our Senators Bill Cassidy and John Neely Kennedy for voting to protect babies who feel pain earlier this week. Unfortunately, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 2311) failed to get the 60 votes needed to go the floor for debate, with the vote being 51-46. Yes, 46 Senators voted in support of the legalized destruction of an unborn baby who may be able to live outside the womb. Let's pray and act until all 100 Senators realize that every baby needs our protection!

Thousands March for Life in Louisiana!

Scores of Louisiana citizens marched for life the past two Saturdays, first in Baton Rouge and last week in Bossier City-Shreveport, and there's one more 2018 Louisiana Life March event left for pro-lifers to show their support for mothers and their babies.

Thousands are expected to march this Saturday from Pineville to Alexandria and share the message that Every Life Deserves a Lifetime. This is the third march in Central Louisiana, and each has been bigger than the year before!

Louisiana Life March Cenla
Feb. 3 | 10 a.m. - Noon

The Louisiana Life March Cenla begins on the grounds of Louisiana College in Pineville. The 1.6-mile march will go down Main Street toward the Jackson Street Bridge, cross the bridge and conclude at the amphitheater on the Alexandria side of the Red River, where a program will be held. Speakers include the personal testimony of Will Hall and his son, Jacob, David Scotton ( I Lived on Parker Avenue), Claire Lemoine with Cenla Pregnancy Center, and Pastor Brian Gunter of First Baptist Church Pollock.

Life March South
The Louisiana Life March South in Baton Rouge was Jan. 20. Though many area pro-lifers were in Washington, D.C. for the March for Life that weekend, more than a thousand people converged on Baton Rouge to show their support for life in a march from the Capitol to the Downtown Riverfront.

Life March North
Rain was expected, but it held off last Saturday morning so more than 5,500 pro-lifers could cross the Texas Street Bridge from Bossier City to Shreveport and share the message that Every Life Deserves a Lifetime. It was a powerful gathering of all ages, races and religious affiliations.

Students Geaux Forth!

Geaux Forth Was a Blast for Louisiana Students Leading Up to Annual March for Life

More than 800 students from Louisiana danced to the band Deep Space Network, heard an incredible testimony from post-abortive and former abortion clinic worker Jewels Green, watched the trailer for
I Lived On Parker Avenue, and received education and advice on the abortion issue and campus activism in Louisiana. Unfortunately, more than 500 students from the New Orleans area who planned to attend the rally at the Washington Hilton were unable to do so because their travel to D.C. was delayed by icy roads and flight cancellations.

But the New Orleans-area students made it to Washington, D.C. in plenty of time to join the others from Louisiana at the annual March for Life. This amounted to about 1,500 students from Louisiana alone marching for life! Each group carried pro-life banners and signs and sang and chanted the whole way, including repeating "Hey hey, ho ho, Roe v. Wade has got to go!"

The Marching 100 from St. Augustine High School performed along the route, and several students from the Archdiocese of New Orleans carried Louisiana Right to Life's large  "Louisiana is Preaux Life" banner. Even though Roe v. Wade is a somber anniversary, each student from Louisiana marched joyfully as they celebrated the lives saved and their hope for ending abortion in their lifetime.
