Fight For Life. For millennia, humans have debated the value of human life. Since the U.S. Supreme Court's decision, Roe v. Wade (1973) legalizing abortion, scholars, theologians and politicians have continued to debate the subject of abortion and other life issues, such as euthanasia, stem cell research and their legal/moral ramifications.
As the anniversary of the court decision draws near, pro-life advocates gear up for the Tulsa March of Life on Sunday, Jan. 22 at 2pm. The rally begins on the steps of Holy Family Cathedral between 8th and 9th Sts. along Boulder Ave. and continues to the Chapman Centennial Green--a walk of 6 blocks in support of life.
Dr. Francis J. Beckwith
Dr. Francis J. Beckwith, Professor of Philosophy & Church-State Studies at Baylor University and the author of numerous books including "Politics for Christians: Statecraft as Soulcraft," will deliver the keynote address.
Dr. Beckwith will also be speaking on "Is the Unborn One of Us? The Unanswered Question in Roe v. Wade" at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 400 N. Aspen Ave., in Broken Arrow, at 7pm on Jan. 21. Visit tulsamarchforlife.org for more information.
