Over 225 Christendom Students, Staff, and Faculty Pray Outside D.C. Abortion Clinic

More than 225 students, faculty, and staff at Christendom College protested prayerfully at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic this past weekend — making it the biggest abortion protest in the university’s 35-year history.

The student group Shield of Roses organized the protest. On any typical Saturday morning, around 20 students make the trek to the D.C. abortion clinic to pray, protest, and counsel women. Once a semester, however, the group’s leadership organizes what it calls a “Mega Shield” event and encourages as many of the members of the College community as possible to participate.

“I am so happy that we were able to get so many to come out for this event,” said President of Shield of Roses, college senior Chris Roberts, in a press release. “It’s a real sacrifice to wake up so early on a Saturday morning and travel to D.C., but the babies are worth it.”

Every year, Christendom cancels classes the day of the March for Life in D.C. and the entire student body enthusiastically attends. Last year, in honor of their pro-life work, Christendom students led the March and carried the banner.
