42nd Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade is approaching!

Happy New Year!

As you know, January 22, 2015 is the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe vs. Wade, when abortion was legalized in our country.  There are many pro-life activities this month that you can participate in and we encourage your council to participate in at least one or do something meaningful for this anniversary.  Only with God's help and our participation will we see an end to abortion in our country.  Here are the opportunities:
