PRO-LIFE DEMOCRATS MARCHED FOR LIFE
by Kristen Day
 
The March for Life never fails to inspire me and give me hope for our future. It is such an uplifting experience to be around thousands of people who have compassion for 
human dignity. We received some much-needed encouragement and support for our message "pro-life for the whole life" and also for remaining in our Democratic Party to fight for those most vulnerable.
 
Our morning started off with breakfast and an incredible presentation by Tammy Ruiz about perinatal hospice. You can learn more by clicking here. I challenge you to keep a dry eye while watching this video. One of the most emotional parts of her speech involved a woman Tammy worked with after she received a prenatal diagnosis. The woman had everything in place and was prepared to deliver a child who would not survive. Fortunately, a medical diagnosis is not always correct, and her child is now six years old and healthy.

The March for Life was an amazing experience, just as it was last year. It really builds up one’s confidence to be part of something so big and inspirational. My day began at 6 a.m. when I woke up to get ready. I left at 7 with my mom to meet up with my junior friend at O’Connell High School, where we also saw some others walking inside to meet everyone going on the bus – for example, my freshman friend Sarah. My friend Erin had gotten dropped off, and we left for D.C.
 
We went to Old Ebbitt Grill, where breakfast was served in a private room.  Tammy Ruiz gave a presentation about perinatal hospice.  Perinatal hospice is a preparation of parents who choose life for their babies with life-threatening conditions that give them less than a day or an hour to live. It made me feel even more supportive of the Pro-life Movement to find out that such a thing existed.
 
   
DFL OF COLORADO MARCH FOR LIFE AND FOR WOMEN
 
Our Colorado Chapter represented our whole life view at the March for Life and the Women's March. Congratulations to Denise and Frances for making it in the Denver Post! 
 
 
"The fight for equality also set Denver friends Denise Archuleta, 53, and Frances Rossi, 75, on their march Saturday. They were first-timers to the Denver Women’s March.
 
“I’m here because this administration is toxic. Women are treated as less than equal by the Trump administration,” Archuleta said. “I’m pro-life for the whole life — not just at conception.”
