Local pro-lifers publicly proclaimed the sanctity of life in Philadelphia in recent days. On the morning of Saturday, Jan. 18 a group of faithful gathered outside an abortion clinic at 12th and Locust Streets to pray. The group then attended Mass in the chapel of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul which Father Stephen DeLacy celebrated, followed by a program of study and lectures on respect life issues at the nearby Archdiocesan Pastoral Center. On Monday, Jan. 20, a large contingent including many young people gave peaceful and prayerful witness outside the same clinic in center city early in the morning. Over 300 young people traveled from Nebraska for the event. With more than 400 people participating, Locust Street was closed by police. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
