NEBRASKA WALK FOR LIFE – Saturday, January 18, 2020

The annual Pro Life Mass will start at 9 a.m. at St. Mary Church 1420 K Street, Lincoln & Reverend Scott Harter will be celebrant and the homilist for the Mass!

The Walk begins at 10 a.m. at the State Capitol. From there, we will walk to the UN-L Student Union, where our Keynote Speakers, Jennifer and Jeff Christie, will speak at 11:30 a.m.

Speakers, JENNIFER CHRISTIE with her husband, JEFF LINCOLN, But what about cases of rape? This is often asked by abortion advocates. Jennifer Christie was raped on a business trip, learning she was pregnant as she recovered from the attack. Against the advice of doctors, friends and society, she decided to keep her child. Her story reminds us that God brings healing from pain, and children are part of the journey to recovery, not an obstacle for mothers to overcome. “I am not raising a ‘rapist’s baby,’” Jennifer said. “I am raising my baby. He is the love that I pour into him. He is the love of my husband who is raising him, siblings who play with him and grandparents who dote on him. He is all of these things and more.” Is he a reminder? Yes, he’s a reminder that women can be stronger than their circumstances. He’s also a reminder that beauty can come from darkness. Join the largest, longest-running First Amendment demonstration against abortion in the State!
