March for Life

MFL letterhead

You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise you, because I am wonderfully made;

wonderful are your works! My very self you know. 

Ps 139:13-14


There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abonimation to him:

haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that hurry to run to evil,

a lying witness who testifies falsely, and one who sows discord in a family

Proverbs 6:16-19
