March for Life Broadens Focus to Engage Cultural, Political Realms


Catholic News Agency - published on 01/21/14 - updated on 06/07/17

Gosnell was convicted in May 2013 of first-degree murder for killing babies born alive from his abortion procedures. Investigations into his clinic found unsanitary conditions, filthy equipment and poor health protocol.

As Americans realized that many abortion clinics are currently “held to beauty parlor standards” for health and safety, Monahan said, it became a “no-brainer” to pass legislation such as the clinic regulations and late-term abortion ban passed in Texas last year.

“We ardently support those late-term abortion bans, because it's just common sense,” she stressed, observing that such legislation has the support of “a broad majority of Americans” and adding, “There's no reason not to support it.”

Social media such as Twitter and Facebook have also had a “whole lot of influence” in spreading the pro-life message, she observed.

“Those moments where we are able to go inside an abortion clinic and really see what's happening…that's changed public opinion significantly, and can have a huge impact on legislation.”
