On January 23rd, 2021, four Western Association members and one provisional member attended the 48th annual Boise March for Life. Each January, on the weekend anniversary of Roe v. Wade, pro-lifers march to commemorate and to pray for the 50 million unborn children who have lost their lives since the notorious 1973 Supreme Court ruling.
Pro-life Catholics from Boise and the surrounding Treasure Valley began with a Mass at 11:00 am, celebrated at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. After Mass, attendees gathered at nearby Julia Davis Park, where the March began at 1:00pm. Participants then walked almost a mile to a rally, held on the steps of the Idaho State Capitol building, and hosted by Right to Life of Idaho.
Bob Kilmartin, KM, stated,
“It was a great way to celebrate a beautiful day.”
Several thousand attended the March, twice the size of last year’s event.
