Standing Up for Life in Ottawa Today

May 14, 2009
As you can well imagine, we're quite busy here at Salt + Light with coverage of Pope Benedict XVI's trip to the Holy Land. There's also another very important event we will be covering as well -- Canada's 12th annual National March for Life, in Ottawa, Thursday at May 14th.
Thousands will gather on Parliament Hill today to stand up in defense of the unborn. Speeches begin around noon, with the March following afterwards.
Salt + Light will be out in full force, providing full coverage and interviews. You'll be able to catch our one hour coverage special on Tuesday, May 26 at 8:00pm, with encore presentations Wednesday, May 27 at 12:00am and 12:30pm, and Saturday, May 30 at 2:00 pm. (all times Eastern).
If you're unable to be in Ottawa on Thursday, be sure to take the time to pray for life -- for the protection, and the recognition of the dignity and sanctity of life. Stand up for life!
