Pro-Lifers' Free Speech Violated

As we reported in “Register Exclusives” and in our Aug. 1 print edition, Priests for Life has hit the road for Freedom Rides for the Unborn.

And just like the first Freedom Rides for civil rights, this new effort is meeting obstacles, as this CNN iReport indicates.

As Bishop Robert Baker of Birmingham, Ala., said, “It’s important to do all humanly possible to underline the moral gravity of abortion and help women in distress to find alternatives. The Freedom Ride for life is a visible, peaceful expression of concern for the right to life for the unborn. It is in the tradition of Freedom Rides for civil rights in the past.”
