I wish I could go.
I want to be in San Francisco on January 26 for the West Coast Walk for Life. But Gimpy the Foot would never tolerate a romp through airports chasing connecting flights.
Not yet. In a few more months, I’ll be able to lumber along just the way I did before. So, maybe next year I’ll go to the West Coast Walk for Life.
In the meantime, I’m encouraging everyone who is able to show up either in San Francisco or Washington DC for one of the two bi-coastal walks for life to put on your walking shoes and go. I want you to do it for the Gimper.
If you do make it to San Francisco’s walk, be sure to get Jennifer O’Neill’s autograph!
The LifeSiteNews article about Jennifer O’Neill’s planned participation in the West Coast Walk for Life reads in part:
SAN FRANCISCO, January 7, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Internationally acclaimed model, film and television star, producer, author and proud mother of three, Jennifer O’Neill is one of a kind. With thirty-five plus feature films, numerous television movies and series to her credit, Jennifer is the first to tell you she is truly blessed.
However, there is more to her story: for years, Jennifer O’Neill, who seemed to “have it all,” suffered from severe depression due to an abortion she had in her early twenties. After years of suffering, she found hope and healing through her faith in Jesus Christ.
Jennifer O’Neill is now the national spokeswoman for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. The campaign seeks to expose and heal the secrecy and silence surrounding the emotional and physical pain of abortion.
Jennifer has announced that she will be joining others in the Silent No More rally prior to the Walk for Life West Coast on January 26, 2013.
“There has never been a more critical time to support the pro-life movement, protect the rights of the unborn, and make known the truth about the devastating aftermath of abortion not only for the babies, but for women and families affected by such unimaginable loss,” she said.
“If you’re not sure where you stand in regard to LIFE, please join us for the 9th Annual Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco on January 26th, 2013!
“There you will hear testimonies from those who have suffered from abortion, and have received hope, healing and grace in Christ Jesus. I believe experience overrides theory … learn the truth about the sanctity of life. Please join us!” (Read more here.)
