Christendom College Closes to Protest Abortion at March for Life

January 5, 2011

Front Royal, Va. (MetroCatholic) – Christendom College will close its doors on Monday, January 24 and its Student Activities Council will charter buses enabling the entire student body to attend the 2011 March for Life in Washington D.C.
“I think it’s great that Christendom recognizes the importance of the March by closing the entire campus,” says Sophomore Jessica Inzeo.

“It ensures that every student has the opportunity to participate in this national event.”

Senior Margaret Antunes agrees.

“I don’t think any other school does this,” she says. “It is a great bonding experience for all the students as we gather under the Christendom banner in support of the pro-life message.

Antunes says that the student body is so pro-life that even if the school did not close, they would all attend.

“It doesn’t matter,” she says. “If it’s cold and rainy, and even if the school didn’t shut down, we would all go just because of the people we are.

Every year, Christendom cancels classes on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion on demand in the United States, and the College’s entire student body enthusiastically attends the March. In 2009, Christendom students led the March for Life, carrying the lead banner and flags.

The college has attended the March for Life as a community every year since the school was founded over 30 years ago. Its students are active in pro-life work year round, leading prayerful protests at a Planned Parenthood Clinic in Washington once a week, as well as taking part in sidewalk counseling and other pro-life activities.

    I think it would be a good idea if these students stayed out of my sexual life. The fact that they feel compelled to editorialize about my sexual makes me think they are perverts. My sexual life is private and not subject to religious or public review.

Got something to say?
