As we entered Sydney’s Domain, we stopped and the VIPs made some speeches, while the police surrounded us for protection, and as I looked out the the vast expanse of the Sydney Domain, of which our small group filled only a very small fraction, I saw in my mind’s eye a vision of the whole Domain filled to the brim with passionate pro- lifers of all denominations: an indomitable, unstoppable force that will not be stopped until the killing is stopped. And I know that this is every pro-lifer’s dream. And while the first part of the march to the domain wasn’t really all that public, my spine tingled as we began to march past car after car of stopped traffic, and the general public, and for once they could not push this issue under the carpet. If for even for one moment, a few in Sydney were nakedly exposed and reminded of our culture’s greatest shame, who knows? Perhaps due to a somewhat awakened conscience, a few babies lives were saved on the march that day.
It was certainly worth any discomfort of denominational differences, and the occasional sniggering stare, to march through the streets of Sydney that day, and I hope to do it again next year. I was so proud and so privileged to be a part of Sydney’s equivalent of the “March for the Babies” and to march for life, to march for the unborn and I will do so again at other marches throughout the nation and I will do so again at this march. And so this is my call to you today Catholics, Protestants, and any other pro-lifer who cares to join us, “Where are the people”?
Where will you be at the next march?
I, and others like me, will be there again and I, and others like me, long to see the courtyard out the back of St Mary’s Cathedral overflowing. We want to see an escort of hundreds of police officers.
We want every pro-lifer to be aware of this event and attending this and every state’s pro- life events.
We want the domain filled to standing room only. We want us all moving from march to march, and prayer vigil to prayer vigil, never giving up. I want us to march on parliament in Canberra; I want us to stand together and march together – UNTIL THE KILLING STOPS.
10 FOR 10,000 – LETS MARCH FOR LIFE – LETS MARCH FOR THE BABIES, UNTIL THE KILLING STOPS.
