BOSTON, July 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- For the 12th summer in a row, college students from all over the country are walking across America. The grassroots group is called Crossroads, and they are walking to promote the sanctity of all human life, from conception until natural death.
Peter Stamm, a sophomore at Boston College, has found the experience to be deeply fulfilling, despite the hardships. “After walking nearly two-thirds of America and encountering thousands of people, it is easy to conclude that most of America is pro-life.”
Crossroads was founded in 1995 and has reached millions of Americans to challenge them to stand up and protect human life. “The world looks to America for our free society and our traditional values – this includes defending innocent, defenseless children in the womb” said Martha Nolan, National Director of Crossroads.
“In the month that America celebrates the Declaration of Independence, it is a glaring contradiction that we should deny the right to life and liberty to millions of unborn persons,” said Nolan “Until the cultural and moral problems that emanate from this crisis are settled, America will not be able to begin the healing process. But whatever happens politically, our purpose is to change hearts and minds, and we are in this fight for the long-haul.”
This summer, there are three walks, each with about fifteen volunteers, originating in Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, concluding together in Washington, DC, on August 12.
“By their own admission, we know that abortion-rights advocates lied to the American people about the harmful effects that abortion has on women, physically and psychologically, and the negative effect it has had on the culture, generally. But they are beginning to tell the truth about one thing: that more and more people are standing up for all life, born and unborn.”
