I spoke with a friend from California yesterday who informed me of the great success of the march for life in San Francisco. Over 15,000 people marched for life in the streets of San Francisco on Saturday January 21, 2006. Of course it did not make the major media and the stories did not talk about the abuse that the pro-lifers suffered from some of the rather strange people who inhabit "the city by the bay." Then again the local newspaper in Phoenix, correctly referred to as the "RAG" (at one time there were two dailies owned by the same company the Republic And the Gazette, hence the RAG -the afternoon paper has since met its timely end), did not cover the March and Rally for Life on January 22, 2006 at Steele Park in Phoenix sponsored by the Arizona Life Coalition, nor did it cover the March and Rally in Tucson on January 21, 2006. The paper gave scant coverage to the National March for Life in Washington,D.C. However it covered extensively the 100 people who came out to demonstrate on behalf of a suicide bill at the Arizona Capitol. Tim over at nailed it with a comparison of the two articles.

Now the story about 100 pro-assisted suicide protester is news. But so is the fact that for the last 33 years the pro-life movement has reminded this state and this nation that Roe v. Wade is not settled law, that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decide, and that our state and federal laws must protect all human life, from conception to natural death. Ignoring the voice of the people shows the bias and prejudice for the major media, both print and electronic. Only in the blogosphere is there a voice for the people and a record of what is truly happening in the streets.

It was not just in D.C. or in San Francisco or Arizona that the people made known their voice. Throughout the heartland of America, men and women and especially young America - the high school and college age students - cried out for and end to the killing. The Natural Choice is Life. Choose Life. Women DO regret their abortions. Women deserve better than abortion. Love Them Both. Abortion kills children. These were some of the slogans on the tens of thousands of signs being carried throughout the nation.

If the cause were to be embraced by the media, there would be no end to the discussion until the killing ended. But the leadership in the media, the producers, the assignment chiefs, the editors, the reporters, are all complicit in the conspiracy of silence. They have bought into the notion that abortion is necessary. They are blind to the fact that abortion kills women, maims women, sterilizes women, damages women emotionally, mentally, spiritually and in so many other ways. They do not know, they do not want to know and they do not care. So just as in the early 1900s, these editors think that if they do not report on it, the event did not happen.

Ah, but that was then. This is now. I can report to you what happened and so can the 200,000 people who marched at the nation's Capitol. They will return and get on their blogs and chat rooms and tell everyone about their Washington experience. These young people are not owned by the liberal press and they are hungry for the truth. Our job at AZRTL is to answer their questions and give them "the rest of the story."

This will be a very important year. Actually every day is important because every day we have a chance to save lives.

Realize that this is just the beginning of another wave. Catch the wave of life.
