  Revisiting the 30th Annual ProLife Rosary Procession and Rally

Thank you, 500 plus stalwart pro-lifers, for walking with us in downtown Cincinnati in the bitter cold, (16 degrees + wind chill) Saturday, January 18th, to pray the Rosary in reparation for abortion.  A contingent from the University of Dayton marched behind their banner, “Flyers for Life”.

Thank you if you prayed at home. TV stations showed us on the evening news, and the Cincinnati Enquirer reporter wrote an excellent article in the January 19th, Sunday paper, as well as posting a video of our procession on-line! The Enquirer posted a correction for one error, January 24,: “The U.S. Supreme Court refused to stop a Texas law that requires doctors to get admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic where they provide abortion services.” In fact, SCOTUS ruled on November 19, 2013 against Planned Parenthood on this matter!

Former OH State Rep. Tom Brinkman introduced pro-life Atty. Tom Condit on
City Hall steps. Tom Condit, encouraging the young pro-life adults to get involved, made some wry remarks about the status quo: too many babies still being killed, but he acknowledged the progress being made regarding the closing of many surgical abortion facilities across the country. Fr. Joseph Greenwell then blessed the statue of Our Blessed Mother, and the solemn procession wound its way from City Hall to Fountain Square.

Mrs. Ann Winner informed the crowd at the Fountain Square rally about the 30 mile law to their muffled mitten applause! As pointed out on this web site, the media was silent about this pro-life victory (see the article below). There is a 30 mile law now in both Missouri and Texas.

Tom Brinkman presented the Cincinnati ProLife award to Atty. Fred Summe, the vice-chairman of the Northern Kentucky Right to Life, for his extensive work for many years defending innocent babies’ lives.

Pro-life Atty. Rick Brueggemann, former chairman of the Boone County Republican Party, gave a substantive speech tracing many Supreme Court decisions since Roe v. Wade. He remarked about the ‘inconsistency’ of the Court’s rulings as they did or did not relate to the U.S. Constitution. (Using Roe v. Wade as a precedent seems illogical as many jurists, even those who support abortion, regard the 1973 decision as unconstitutional. And there are many examples of one Supreme Court overthrowing another, i.e. Brown v. the Bd. of Education canceling Plessy v. Ferguson.) Because of the serious dilemma America faces with this abortion battle, Rick Brueggemann asked the crowd to not only act politically, but to strengthen our spiritual efforts by appealing to the ‘army of the dead’. He explained that he has prayed the Rosary asking deceased relatives to intercede for special intentions with amazing results!

Maria Walker, sophomore at Immaculate Conception Academy won the sterling silver Rosary. We are grateful to Mrs. Lisa Reist (thank you, Lisa, for all you and your family do!) and her hot cocoa and coffee crew who provided us with yummy doughnuts to sustain us. Let us all pray for the individual who stole one of her cash donation containers.

Donations are gratefully accepted.
