Anglicans for Life Applauds Bishops Witness at March for Life Events
Pittsburgh, PA (January 21, 2015) – Fourteen Anglican bishops, including Archbishop Foley Beach, are joining Anglicans for Life and hundreds of thousands of Christians to March for Life. On Thursday, January 22, 2015, in Washington D.C., Anglicans Bishops will participate in the 42nd March for Life. Then on Saturday, January 24th, Bishop Eric Menees of the Diocese of San Joaquin will be joined by bishops and other Anglicans in San Francisco for the 10th Annual Walk for Life.
The Anglican bishops in DC will start the day in prayer by attending an ecumenical prayer service at the National Memorial for the Preborn and their Mothers and Fathers, at Constitution Hall (1776 D Street, N.W., Washington D.C.).
“The March for Life is a great opportunity to join with people from across our great country and collectively say, “Life is sacred.” Anglicans believe life is a gift from our Creator and I encourage parishioners and clergy to join their bishops as we March in Washington DC on Thursday, January 22, 2015," said Archbishop Foley Beach.
“The Anglican Church in North America has a deep commitment to the sanctity of life,” said Bishop John Guernsey of the Anglican Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic. “Our hope is that the presence of so many of our bishops for the March for Life this year will help spur the Church to even greater support for the sacredness of human life.”
According to Bp. Menees, “Often we buy into the media description of these events as Protest Rallies - I disagree. In Spanish this is called a manifestación - easily translated into English as “manifestation.” That is what this is – a manifestation of Jesus’ presence and love for the most vulnerable and fragile in our midst – pregnant mothers and the babies in their wombs. This is why the Anglican Bishops make this a priority in our schedule.”
The bishops will join with fellow Anglicans marching under the Anglicans for Life banner as they acknowledge 42 years since the landmark ruling Roe v Wade that permitted abortion on demand in the United States. Since then, over fifty-seven million babies have been aborted leaving a tremendous impact on an entire generation and the nation.
The Anglican Church in North America teaches that all Christians are to uphold the Sanctity of Life from the moment of conception to natural death. From The Canons of the Anglican Church in North America: "God, and not man, is the creator of human life. The unjustified taking of life is sinful. Therefore, all members and Clergy are called to protect and respect the sanctity of every human life from conception to natural death." (Canon II.8.3)
Anglicans for Life encourages, equips, and empowers the Anglican Church to fulfill Scripture’s mandate to protect the vulnerable, defend the fatherless and plead for the widow through a variety of strategies including publications like the new Honor Life Calendar and Project Life Adult-Education Curriculum.
