KANSAS CITY, Mo, July 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- A group of college students from around the country have spent the past 2 months in an extraordinary undertaking: walking across America from San Francisco to Washington, DC.
The group, called Crossroads, is a national organization of student volunteers that was founded in 1995 to promote the dignity of all human life from its very beginnings in the womb until natural death. “We see every day what even polls and abortion-rights advocates have begun to concede – that the majority of Americans oppose abortion on demand at a minimum,” said Megan Otten of St. Louis, Missouri. “Being pro-life can no longer be seriously characterized as the marginal belief.”
The groups have encountered hundreds of thousands of people on the trek, including roughly a quarter of a million in churches alone.
“Over the past 12 years, we have spoken directly to millions of people across America with the message that all human life is sacred and should be protected at every stage.” said Crossroads National Director Martha Nolan.
This summer, three walks, originating in Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, are covering 9,500 miles and passing through 31 states before they will conclude at the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. on August 12.
“Much of the cultural and moral dialogue has spilled over into the political sphere, which is not our focus, frankly,” added Nolan. “If Roe v Wade were overturned tomorrow, the culture would still require countless years of healing. In the end, this is not a political matter, it is cultural and moral.”
