The Pro-Life movement has impacted the school and a bus of students were sent to the Capital to support it.

They had a 24 hour bus drive to Virginia where they stayed at a hotel. The actual march took place on January 24th. Before that they spent time with some other groups that are also attending it. They played games, attended a prayer service and rally, and lastly worshiped together. 

 11 Bishop Kelley students went to the march and they met up with 110 other students from Oklahoma. The other groups include St. Bernard, St. Benedict, Holy Family, St. John, and St. James.

On Friday, January 24th the group got up early and drove for 30 minutes to the capital. People from all over the country stood outside of the Capital chanting and holding up signs. President Donald Trump even gave a speech to the group about abortion. Father Duy was moved by what the president had to say.

 “The president had a very good speech about abortion and those who are unspoken,” Duy said. 

Father Duy has high hopes for the students here. Some students ran into him in the hallway during lunch. He immediately stopped them and talked about the March for Life. 

“My hopes are to have around 20 Bishop Kelley students going on this trip with us in the future,” Duy said. 

Delaney Powell (11) is also a big supporter of this march. 

“This march is one of the biggest and best events ever,” Powell said. 

Abortion had become a big controversy in the world and the groups that go to the march are there to stand against it. Principal Jim Franz also feels abortion is wrong and supports the March For Life groups. 

“In North Carolina, if you touch a sea turtle egg you have broken a federal law. Sea turtle eggs are protected under an act of Congress, but you can kill a human being at that same stage and it’s legal. This is a mixed up system and something is wrong with that system,” Franz said. 

The school plans to keep sending students and teachers to the March for Life event each January. As the event continues to grow, the school hopes to be an important part of each march for years to come.
