Local (Detroit Area) Youth Rally in D.C. for March for Life (Jan. 22)

Eighteen students from Oakland University traveled with other Students for Life of Michigan chapters, including the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Grand Valley State University and Central Michigan University . . .

The night prior to the march, a youth rally and Mass were held in the Verizon Center, which Right to Life – LIFESPAN from Oakland and Macomb counties attended . . .

Though the number of marchers did not reach 500,000 this year, CBS News reported that the March for Life digital footprint left a mark with an increase of supporting messages over social media from the United States to Pope Francis, who tweeted “I join the March for Life in Washington with my prayers. May God help us respect all life, especially the most vulnerable.”


It’s very encouraging that Students for Life chapters exist on the campuses of these secular state and private universities in Michigan.
