Embracing Equality, Respecting Life: A Celebration of Hope
Washington, D.C. — In the wake of El Salvador’s just and life-affirming decision regarding the difficult pregnancy of “Beatriz” — a decision respecting and honoring the lives and needs of both the mother and the child — Live Action will host a midday vigil celebrating true equality of rights and universal respect for human life. We gather in the hope of a future where all human beings are respected, all women are supported, and all life is held equally worthy of protection.
Fair and compassionate nations like El Salvador understand that no human being is without value, regardless of disability, state of development, or location. They echo the convictions deep in the hearts and souls of the majority of their people: that all men are created equal, and that we do not kill some innocents to save others. In the capital of our own nation, we will gather to commend these countries, and to hold them as an example for U.S. officials to follow.
Who: Live Action and groups across the religious and political spectra.
What: Vigil in support of courageous countries like El Salvador, who defy international pressure to respect life, protect women, and safeguard the rights of all their citizens equally.
Where: Dupont Circle, Washington, D.C.
When: Tuesday, June 11, 2013 at 12:00pm (noon) ET
