On January 22 the United States will mark the 45th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal throughout the country. Since that tragic decision, more than 56 million children’s lives have been lost to abortion, and many suffer that loss — often in silence. From Thursday, January 18 – Friday, January 26, thousands of Catholics across the country will come together in prayer for a “culture of life.” Find resources on the web site of the US Bishops’ Conference, including daily prayers, information about gatherings local to you, and a social media toolkit.
