Walk For Life West Coast Rally in San Francisco

All are invited to join the 9th Annual Walk for Life West Coast Rally in San Francisco on January 26, 2013. Founded in 2005, the Walk for Life West Coast’s mission is to change the perceptions of a society that thinks abortion is an answer.
Walk participants will include Archbishop Carlo Maria ViganĂ², the papal nuncio to the United States, 14 Catholic bishops including San Francisco’s new Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, and thousands of other pro-life supporters from throughout the Bay Area and across the United States and Canada.
