Pro-Life Leader Nellie Gray Dies, Hailed as ‘Champion for Life’

Patrick J. Reilly, President of The Cardinal Newman Society, issued the following statement upon learning of the death of March for Life founder Nellie Gray, who passed away over the weekend.

I am deeply saddened to learn of Nellie’s passing.  Having worked with her over the past twenty years, I have been inspired and motivated by her dedication to the Gospel of Life.

Pro-life Americans have lost a strong and devoted ally, a true champion for life.  Without a doubt, the recent successes of the pro-life movement can be traced back to Nellie’s dogged advocacy in the early dark days of our cause.

She has been a true role model for the countless thousands of high school and college students who have attended the March for Life.  Indeed, the recent surge in the pro-life movement among young people can in large part be attributed to Nellie’s influence.

My family and the members of The Cardinal Newman Society will surely pray for the repose of her soul.  We are so thankful to God for her life.
