'Our only choice is life'—50k expected to attend Walk for Life West Coast; Here's Why YOU Should Consider Going
Claire Chretien : Jan 10, 2018
"The Walk itself is longer than the March for Life, allowing for a powerful public witness through the heart of downtown San Francisco. The "camaraderie and compassion" the participants display "provides a beacon of light and hope that shines through the darkness of one of America's most liberal cities." -David Bereit, former organizer of 40 Days for Life

The Walk for Life aims to send "a vocal and visual message that people of the West Coast stand for life" as they peacefully protest abortion. It is a rapidly-growing West Coast event around the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court case that legalized abortion on demand in 1973.
Veteran pro-life activist Joseph Scheidler will receive the Walk's St. Gianna Molla Award for pro-life heroism. Scheidler has been involved in pro-life activism since the dawn of the pro-life movement. Scheidler is the founder of the Pro-Life Action League.

"The time has come to lead the way, to make a stand, to defend our families, our children, our future" the video says. "Our only choice is life."
Another speaker is Terry Beatley of the Hosea Initiative. Beatley has made it her life's mission to share with as many as possible the story of Dr. Bernard Nathanson, one of NARAL's founding abortionists who converted to being pro-life. When Nathanson was dying of cancer, Beatley promised him she'd share his strategy of how he deceived America on abortion.
Dr. Nathanson "trained Planned Parenthood doctors on how to kill babies," Beatley told LifeSiteNews. His "personal parting message," which she'll be sharing with Walk attendees, "carries a lot of weight...
