On January 21, many members of the Order of Malta in Northern California joined with over 50,000 other pro-lifers for the 13th Annual Walk for Life West Coast.  The members of the Order present knew whom to thank (Our Lady) for the fact that the rain stopped right before the festivities began at Civic Center Plaza in San Francisco and began again after the Walk had ended 1.7 miles away in Justin Herman Plaza, at the foot of Market Street!

As usual, the most impressive and hopeful aspect of the Walk was the great number of young high schoolers and collegians, behind whom the members of the Order walked.

Hope was high that the Supreme Court would one day reverse itself regarding its terrible Roe v. Wade decision.
