As we prepare for the Fifth Annual West Coast Walk for Life this Saturday, let us not forget The 2nd Annual Standing Up 4Life Walk in Oakland, which takes place tomorrow. The Walk is led by our good friend the Reverend Walter Hoye of the Issues4Life Foundation. From Reverend Hoye's website:
"The Impact Of Abortion In The African-American Community!"
"All of our events strongly adhere to and enforce the "Nonviolent" philosophy embraced by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. If you cannot remain nonviolent, please do not attend our events.
We walk because abortion in the Black community is a form of genocide, it is the Darfur of America.
We walk because abortion in Black America is the civil rights issue of our day.
We walk because abortion does violence, both physically and emotionally, to men and women, to their children, and to their families.
Walk with us and help us change the perceptions of a culture that thinks aborting children is an option."
